I’m super smitten with this sweet duo! Milkshake party anyone?
Don’t both of these things just scream summer? A semifreddo is a wonderful party dessert that appears way more fancy schmancy than it is. I love the sweet, preppy colors of this one. Throw in a little metallic and I’m more than happy to match my footwear to my ice cream for a backyard cocktail party!
What a fantastic holiday weekend! It was the perfect kick-off to summer. I went on long walks through the city, checked out a new favorite cafe, toured two Virginia vineyards, shared a backyard BBQ with friends, ate an incredible meal at Bandolero with my brothers, got a nice little tan, and hit up a stocked farmer’s market. Seriously, could it have been any better?
Along with a great assortment of veggies, I also picked up my first batch of strawberries at the farmer’s market. My first inclination was to make my favorite strawberry cupcakes with them, but I wanted to try something new. Don’t worry, I’ll make those cupcakes again very soon! I remembered a peach shortbread recipe that I made last summer and thought that it would be a perfect treat to go with this hot, festive, summer weekend.
I also added a thin layer of raspberry jam to these bars to make them a little more gooey. You could add any flavor of jam or use any kind of fruit for these though. It’s a super easy recipe too… have fun with it!
