April Favorites

Posted on April 30, 2015

Hi Everyone! Can you believe that tomorrow is May 1st?! This has been one of the craziest, busiest and most stressful months in a while around here, but it’s also been a very exciting one, filled with lots of fun things and new adventures! I feel like whenever this time of year comes around, it feels like the summer is just around the corner; we’ve had such beautiful sunny weather for the past couple of days and even had our first bonfire and s’mores of the year! Here’s a little bit of what’s been happening this month…

LUSH Bath Boms Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins
Left: LUSH bath treats – a flower bubble bar and a lavender bath bomb! If you’re a bath person and you’ve never tried any LUSH products, you should definitely give them a try! They smell incredible and are super moisturizing, and they are really fun too – some of them have glitter inside, others have lots of different layers of colors inside that turn the bath water into crazy colors! Right: I made Ina Garten’s Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins for breakfast over Easter, and as with all of Ina’s recipes, these were delicious!

You can never go wrong with the Barefoot Contessa! I also made her savory Leek & Artichoke Bread Pudding and her Caramelized French Onion Dip this month, which were both amazing too!

Left: A pretty loaded Easter dinner plate! Featuring honey glazed ham, the Pioneer Woman’s mac and cheese, the Barefoot Contessa’s leak and artichoke bread pudding, a fresh berry salad, roasted asparagus and classic deviled eggs. We ate leftovers for days and still have ham in the freezer! Right: Easter candy!

Ducks at the park Cherry Blossom Festival DC
Left: One of my favorite things about the weather finally being nicer are evening walks at the park. I love these long spring days, and that it’s not pitch dark by 5pm! Right: One of my favorite things about the area that we live in is the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC (you can read more about it in this post). If you’ve never visited DC when the cherry trees are blooming, you should definitely plan on it next year, it’s absolutely gorgeous!

Miss Shirley's Annapolis MD 
Left: The most incredible chicken & waffles at Miss Shirley’s in Annapolis. This is one of my favorite restaurants in this area, they have so many delicious breakfast dishes to choose from, but this was definitely one of the best things I’ve had in a long time! Right: This man is my favorite thing every month. And every day. Always. Forever.

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Two of my favorite posts that I shared with you this month: Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (left) and Carrot Cake Cupcakes (right). I was obviously having a cream cheese frosting moment this month, since both these recipes feature it!

I hope you all had a wonderful month, and that the one ahead is going to be even better! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a great rest of your week! Stop by again soon for lots of new projects and recipes!
