Can’t you just hear the sound of the waves crashing on the shore… and the sand exhaling as the sea slips back into its vastness. Ahh the sounds of summer at the beach.
I think it’s summer, like for real summer. Where the days feel endlessly long, jackets are no longer required, and time spent outdoors is nothing but enjoyable. And believe me I plan to make the most of this time of year, savoring every second of sun and warmth I can.
My lovely friend is turning 30 and that right there deserves a cake… or maybe 3… and a drink! If I’m making a birthday cake I like to make something fitting to the recipient. This cake was inspired by the color mint green, cause really it’s just her color.
I’m going to call these my lucky scones. Immediately after making them and gifting them to my friend I ran into the star of my favorite TV sitcom. I’m minding my business washing my hands in the ladies room of Le Diplomate, a hip new Washington D.C. restaurant, and I look up in the mirror to see a stunningly beautiful woman in a gorgeous blue dress fixing her lipstick in the mirror. Ummm… Gloria???
It’s a vacation dessert. Specifically a warm tropical vacation dessert. It’s cool, tart, and refreshing, just the thing you want to eat after a long day at the beach. Or when you’re sitting at home on a rainy day and want to pretend you’re at the beach. It works either way.
I am not a patient person. It’s unfortunate, but waiting is not my thing. I’m more of a let’s get ‘er done and move on to the next thing kind of girl. I know what I want and I want it now!
