    Sarah’s Summer Poolside Reading List

    Sarah’s Summer Poolside Reading List The other day on Instagram, my friend Tracy from The Pages In Between posed the question, “Do you read more or less in the summer?” I think that’s a really great question. I read all throughout the year, but as the days get longer, so does my reading list. There’s something about the summer that makes me feel like I can burn through a book (or even two) in one day. Here in Oregon, we go a long time without decent sunlight. So when the sun is out, you best believe that I am soaking it in. For me, there is not much better than chilling…

    Super Easy Shortcake Recipe

    Super Easy Shortcake Recipe I am in love with this super easy shortcake recipe. I’ve made a few different types of shortcakes over the years & this is the winner!

This super easy shortcake recipe features pastry flour, but you can totally use all-purpose. Just be sure to use a little…

    Raspberry Hand Pie Recipe

    Raspberry Hand Pie Recipe Oh, Valentine’s Day. You haven’t always been good to me, but I try to love you anyway. First, I never got one of those ugly carnations in middle school. Yes, it’s true. The boys were not lining up to buy me $1 flowers in the lunchroom. No worries. I’m totally (not) over it. Who the hell wants carnations anyway? Another year, I had a romantic Valentine’s dinner after a shopping rendezvous. Nevermind the dinner consisted of eating a heart-shaped pizza with my parents after hitting up the mall. I got some sweet carpenter jeans out of the deal & realized I like Supreme Pizzas. A few years…

Now, the Blackberry Cream Cheese Icing is so tasty. The whipped icing is lighter and…
