For the last few months I’ve been really into jars. My house is covered with all different kinds of jars with all different kinds of things inside. Mason jars are super cheap and come in all different sizes. They’re great for preserving food because the lid seals 2 ways and is super tight. I know you might be looking at this dessert and think to yourself “what is that?” or “that’s kinda awkward?!” but I one scoop and you’ll be sold. I made it for my family for dinner the other night and it was certainly a hit. Hope you enjoy 🙂

I’ve always struggled with the idea whether cheese is a dessert or not. I really started to question it when I would see it on the appetizer section and on the dessert menu–at the same restaurant! All I know is that I love it! I’ve come to terms with the fact that cheese is great no matter what meal it goes along with, it just needs the right wingmen of flavors to define it. My boyfriend (Patrick aka Pattycake) got me really into brie in grad school, after that my taste buds went wild and I started trying some of the more exotic cheeses. These days I rarely entertain without a good cheeseplate on the table. Click here to see how I assembled the plate and the goodies that I put along with it. 

Almond Butter Cookies

My butter almond cookie is the perfect cookie. It goes well with all other desserts. The best part about making them is your whole house will smell like warm sugar. This cookie is a perfect pair with a cup of tea. Curl up with a batch of these and I promise they wont disappoint.                    Click Here for Recipe.
