Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We are just hanging out in NYC and I couldn’t be happier! I feel like we haven’t had a relaxing weekend in the city all summer, so I am excited to just chill! And bake. Lots of baking on the agenda! And if you are looking for something delicious and summery to bake this weekend, might I suggest this Mixed Berry Galette? It is one of my absolute favorite summer desserts.

You might remember this Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart from last year. It was one of the best things I made all summer long! My Mixed Berry Galette is basically the exact same thing, except with a different filling! I decided to change the name to make it sound fancy – but don’t let the fancy name fool you. This couldn’t be easier to make!

These cookies. They are really going to be the end of me. I have been trying to eat healthy since we got back from our trip. Because as much as I want to believe that gelato three times a day is normal, I know it isn’t. But then I made these cookies, and I can’t stop eating them. Do other people eat three cookies in one sitting?? Let’s go with yes, because these Pistachio Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies are just too good to only have one. They are salty and sweet, soft but still chewy, and just bursting with dark chocolate – cookie perfection….

And that is why I am SO excited to be hosting an awesome GIVEAWAY today for a KitchenAid Artisan 5Qt Stand Mixer AND the Ice Cream Maker Attachment.  Scroll to the bottom of the post and enter to win!  …

We are throwing a party today! It is a BABY SHOWER for my good friend Zainab aka Blahnik Baker. Zainab was one of my first blog friends, and she is absolutely amazing. In addition to being an incredible baker, she is such a great person – so supportive, kind and fun! She is going to be the most amazing mom, and I’m so happy to be celebrating her today!

She is a coconut fanatic (see here and here) so we are throwing a tropical themed party for her. I’m bringing Mango Coconut Donuts to the party!  Donuts are kind of my thing, so I knew I had to make some coconut donuts for this coconut themed baby shower!
