Well guys, I'm off for a New York City vacation tomorrow! I absolutely love it there, and I can hardly wait! This will be my third visit, and this time my mom and
little younger sister will be going with us. I guess I can't call her my little sister anymore considering we are taking her for her graduation gift. This is mind blowing for me. I joke around that it will be her wedding day, and I'll be asking her how she got there. In my mind, she's still not old enough to drive. But hey, if I can't slow down time, I might as well celebrate with her. This will be her first time in NYC, and I am so happy that I get to take her!

I'd just like to go ahead and apologize for the amount of popsicle recipes that go up on the blog this summer. I'm quite obsessed with my popsicle molds as of late, and I don't see it going away any time soon. I keep catching myself dreaming up new recipes with a vengeance. I can't be stopped. Hopefully you love popsicles too and can benefit from this. Another obsession I have right now is Wanderlust Coffee. Wanderlust Coffee is a company here in Atlanta that does small batch, cold brewed coffee. It is the coffee that dreams are made of. Recently they've been setting up stands at artist and farmer's markets around the city and selling their cold coffee ON TAP. Yes, like a delicious frothy beer, but it's coffee. Amazing coffee. Because I am a connoisseur of artist and farmer's markets and unique things to do in Atlanta in general, I have had the pleasure of ending up at the same place as a Wanderlust stand several times, and it's safe to say, I am now a Wanderlust stalker. That's where these coffee popsicles come in. Luckily for me, you don't have to wait for an event to enjoy their coffee. They sell it in a lot of the little markets I frequent here so I was able to get a bottle for my frappuccino popsicles. Now, you can obviously use any coffee you want for these pops, but I would recommend something high in quality. You can brew it yourself and let it cool, or you can head out to your favorite market or grocery store and see what they have in the way of cold brewed coffee. Either way, I think these coffee pops are going to make your summer a lot more enjoyable! And if you're in the Atlanta area, do yourself a favor, and check out Wanderlust!

Guys. I don't even know what to say about these flatbreads besides "make them". No seriously. You have to make these. These grilled flatbreads are going to be a huge hit at your next dinner party! They're simple, beautiful, and delicious! I love serving crostini as an appetizer at parties, but if you want to take your hors d'oeuvre game to a whole new level, give these a try. I don't eat pork, but I'm sure they'd be equally delish topped with some bacon or pancetta. And although I'm a sucker for goat cheese, blue cheese crumbles would be delicious too!
