Ghiradelli’s Sundaes

Last month, while I was in San Francisco, I went to Ghiradelli’s Square…. and ate everything I could.

It was SOOO good! My friends and I shared a few of the ice cream sundaes. We felt a little sick after… but it was worth it! ūüôā

Harry Potter Movie Night

Many of us have memories of reading Harry Potter late into the night, listening to books on cd on road trips, and having movie marathons with roommates.

Let’s face it, Harry Potter has brought a lot of joy to our lives!

Recently, a few friends felt like it’s been too long since we’d watched Harry Potter. ¬†So… we decided to watch 1 (or 2….) together! Me, being the silly over-the-top person I am, decided to make Harry Potter themed treats!

Our menu included:

  • Jelly Slugs
  • Golden Snitch Cake
  • Cauldron Cakes
  • Pumpkin Pasties
  • Chocolate Frogs
  • Polyjuice Potion
  • ButterBeer

Pineapple Boat

So I love having people over! I enjoy trying out fancy recipes, so it’s always the perfect excuse. ūüôā

 

Recently, I had pretty short notice for a large group coming over. ¬†So as an appetizer (and conversation piece) I whipped out a crowd favorite. Pineapple Boats! Ok, that’s what my mom always called them……

First, take a ripe pineapple. (This pineapple was a little more ripe than I like, I prefer them with more tangy firmness….)
