Dare we say ice cream sundaes are the friendliest treat. The toppings have a mutual adoration to each other, making them all better together! And what could be easier than using pre-scooped ice cream cups and opening a few bags and jars of your favorite toppings. Gather your friends and build a Saturday to remember!

Sweet Travels

We have no plans on attending Mardi Gras this year. However, when a love one recently visited New Orleans, she brought us back a box of Cafe Du Monde beignets mix. It’s a little earlier than Fat Tuesday, but this weekend we will be baking up these delicious pastries. And with a few dipping sauces on the side, we will be creating our own little party.

So Long Sweet Summer

Even though our kiddos started school this week, it is only August and we are trying to hold onto any last bits of summer. Nothin says summer like ice cream sundaes. Around here we like to make things extra cutesy so we grabbed a few jars, some yummy toppings, a few flavors of ice cream and created our own ice cream sundae bar.
