farm fresh.

growing up in new jersey, especially hunterdon county,
you learn to love your surroundings.
i love the little farm stands randomly placed all throughout the area.
we have so many that i didn't even know about!
some in town, some up on the hill, some on the highways..

sure, going to the super market is great and all
but when you get to see where your fruit & veggies come from
your world will be changed. i promise.

i have grown to appreciate what my town has to offer
&i wish you all the same.

strawberry summer cake.

honestly. this cake is the best.
i've made it twice, and it seems to be even better the next time.
i can't wait to make it differently during each season.
i adore simple recipes that are wholesome and so enjoyable.

cherry cheesecake

thanks to my sister Jaime, she provided me with a really easy individual cheesecake recipe
it is absolutely amazing and dummy-proof.
also, it is such a basic recipe that you can add different flavors to it!

toast the graham cracker/butter mixture in the oven.

beat the cream cheese and sugar.

add the eggs and vanilla

fill the liners 2/3.

i'll post the recipe soon!
