Hot and steamy Friday in the Twin Cities today! Whooo! Feels like a sauna out there but no worries here because it has been a happening week and I have some good links for ya’ll as usual.
Abuela is in town and it is such a treat. Watching my mom and Poppy hug and hangout is beyond sweet. Abuela has been teaching baby Spanish words which she is actually starting to pick up, cool dance moves, and feeding her good food. Witnessing these 2 ladies share so many special moments has been pretty waesome. Even if my child looks like Steve Urkel. Yea so my mom has this tendency of pulling baby’s pants up grandma style. Attractive… it is not. But baby still somehow pulls it off.
This abuela visit has been a pretty low key one. Mostly enjoying the new house, exploring our new neighborhood and St. Paul, and cooking… of course! We have taken walks, eaten pastries galore, enjoyed nightly coffee chats, lounged pool side and had some pretty spectacular dance parties with baby.
My mom is a great cook and she loves testing and trying new things. Especially South and Central American recipes. Which is fabulous because it means, the hubs and I always get to try new exotic recipes everytime she visits. This time it was a coffee quesillo (kind of like a flan but better) and empanadas! So good!
Snapshot of our happenings this week.
Have a great weekend and hope you get a enjoy your favorite summer treat ☀️
My hair feels blah, so I will be trying 1 or 2 of these.
Ok Croissant waffles? Um hell yes.
Talk about easy dinners. All on one sheet pan.
Another memorable car karaoke.
We made a Strawberry Rhubarb crostata this week. Next up I want to tackle something as incredible as this.
It’s corn season everyone! Go get corn and try making this.
Insanely delicious looking! Can’t handle it.
Favorite Site of the Week: Apt. 2B Baking. Ok Yossy’s photos and recipes are real, simple and insanely appetizing. Glorious handmade crostatas, breads, and sweet sweet treats. Warm, inviting and totally accessible, these are classic comfort desserts elevated with the use of seasonal fruit. Seriously check out her site, and tell me you do not want to make a pie!
