The cake was an absolute hit. The kids loved it, and even more, Sebastian loved it. I asked him what his favorite part of his party was, and he said enthusiastically - the cake!
If you've ever been to Seattle and visited Trophy Cupcakes, one of my favorite cupcakes on the menu is the salted caramel. Without having ever tried to recreate their recipe, I was delightfully surprised when these cupcakes came out almost exactly the same.
Meet Emmett Francis Hands born June 8, 2018, measuring 8 pounds 11 ounces and 21 inches. We're having fun getting to know Emmett. He is changing every day and proving to be the happiest baby I've ever seen. He's constantly smiling at everything and it makes my heart burst. He is now a little over two months, and I have no idea where the time has gone. I am trying so hard to savor every moment.
When peaches are in season, I try to use them in cooking wherever I can. They are so incredibly juicy and sweet during the summer months, I just can't help from buying a few pounds every week. I think the key to pulling off a salad with lots of fruit is by also adding some sort of cheese, a bold green, and an acidic dressing.
I am all for quick simple meals at the moment. It's a tricky time of year for one-pot meals though. No one wants to make a batch of chili or pot of soup when the weather is beginning to warm and we are all craving salads and fresh produce. I like this pasta salad recipe because it's filling with a relative hardiness, but also fulfills my needs for fresh veggies!
