Happy Tuesday everyone! What a crazy past few weeks it’s been around here. Just back home last night from a week in sunny AZ and had a great time with my family and friends despite the wicked heat. It’s funny how quickly the boys and I forgot how hot AZ gets in the summer. We’ve been so spoiled with the mid 70′s around here in CA!
With summer as unpredictable as it is, I will occasionally be highlighting some of my past favorite recipes to keep up with everything going on. I’ve organized a couple of my very favorite summer treats to share with you all today since I haven’t stepped foot in my kitchen for a while. Hope you all will enjoy a blast from the past! This little parfait and my raspberry blondies are the perfect way to perk up any summer! Enjoy!
