Although In their 5 ingredients, they clearly aren’t counting the seasonings, but it’s pretty straightforward. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe post is here.
I don’t know about you guys, but it feels like we have a whole bunch of parties and barbecues and summer activities coming up, and naturally you will probably want to bring something to those gatherings. If you are in charge of dessert, I highly recommend this coconut cake with ricotta whipped cream. it’s so much easier to make than it looks, and is all about simple ingredients and lots of pretty fruit on top.

This crochet bear pouch is so adorable- I want one for myself. I think it would be great for weekend breaks or travelling, as a little jewelry or toiletry pouch. For kids, it would be great for their little treasures and crayons. You could even crochet this with a smaller hook and fingering weight yarn for an utterly charming coin purse!

Have an amazing weekend, everyone! We have busy weekend of barbecues and visits with friends planned, plus it is Guy’s birthday AND father’s day… but I know that Father’s Day is not a day that makes everyone happy or comfortable. If anyone struggles with this day for any reason, feel free to take a social media vacation from Sunday. Do what you need to do to take care of yourself, and have a lovely weekend.
