Sweeter than sweet!

Jul 2, 2015

There is a beautiful thing about this whole "blogging world", and that is the sense of community that you build. The relationships, and friendships that grow out of finding a similarity through writing, or photography. It is something that if you are not apart of you might find weird. Like, wait I'm sorry, you are texting a woman you have never met? Having a lengthy conversation about kids, pregnancy weight, and the need for a glass of wine. Chris is still one of those people this is like....I don't get it. And I didn't get it at first either. But now I have these people in my life that I consider real friends, even if we haven't met in real life. You have a common denominator, your blogs. Whether you are blogging as a creative outlet, a hobby, a virtual journal, or it has become your profession, you find yourselves rooting for one another. When you see a new partnership on a post you think, awesome! Good for her! Or when you find a post that you just can't help but nod your way through, you share it. And then when you see a dream come to fruition you think, yaaaas girl...yassss!
That is the case with my friend Kait and her new book Sweet Eats and Dog Treats, available on iTunes! Food is my first language, so I knew I had to get my finger swipe on when she told me this book was ready for download. Not only are the pictures so inviting, but the recipes inside just take you back to your grandma's kitchen table. Especially the ricotta cookies, my childhood favorite! 

The cookbook itself is comprised of gluten free recipes not only for you but for your four legged friends as well. I must admit though, when reading the dog treats section I got in touch with my inner canine and began to salivate! Her chocolate lab Judy is about the cutest thing ever, and clearly her a la cart dessert options make you want to live a day or two in her life. Can I get a hashtag spoiled? In the best way possible, of course. 

As I was swiping through the pages, the kids got a little nosy and said "oooh mom whatcha looking at?" I told them a new cookbook and they immediately pointed out things they wanted to make. First up were the apple nachos!!! I secretly just think Pierce and Ace saw chocolate chips in combination with apples and thought, mom will totally go for that one! 
Such a great snack for the kiddos! I did substitute the caramel for agave sauce, don't kill me Kait! My children happen to not know what caramel is....and I selfishly would like to keep it that way. Somehow I just imagine walking in on Pierce on the kitchen counter, head tossed back, while squeezing caramel into his mouth. Anyway, this recipe.....kid tested mother approved!

We will most definitely be trying more recipes from the book, and it's not too late to whip something up for the long weekend! Be the star of the backyard bbq and bring some ricotta cookies! I mean....that's what I would do.

So, go forth my friends and get Kait's book. And while you're at it, stop by her blog and give her a virtual high five!


If I don't pop in over the next couple days, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend!

  3. Good for her! Blogging is so bizarre but wonderful at the same time. I talk about people (you included) as if I just had coffee with you or something. Side eye from Matt always follows.
