september goals

Happy September! I always laugh a little when people say Labor Day is the last weekend of summer. I have always lived in the South, where school starts back before Labor Day and the heat sticks around until at least October, so Labor Day is really just a long weekend that starts off September for…

cherry frozen yogurt popsicles

Oh these popsicles. Cherry frozen yogurt popsicles are sooooo easy to throw together and use only four ingredients (two of which are listed in the name). Of course, the day I photographed these popsicles, we had a weird fluke power outage – perfect conditions for a frozen treat. Can you hear my sarcasm through the…

soft brown butter sugar cookies

Cookies are my favorite dessert to make. There are so many flavor possibilities, textures, and types of cookies, and, unlike with cakes, pies, and bars, you can bake only a few servings at a time or the whole batch.

guide to coffee shops in the triangle
