The Things I Loved This Week

Because I’ve already mentioned to excess that the 4th of July is one of my favorite days of the year, I’m going to be cutting out for the next few days. I’ll be here on Wednesday following a long holiday weekend where I hope there are copious fireworks and champagne in my future, in addition to a bunch of work I need to tackle behind the scenes for some big upcoming projects I can’t wait to share with you. Have you been following along on my Instagram Stories? We put in a new back patio this week and I’ve been sharing updates on the progress there. I’ll be sharing more over the weekend so you can see how it’s coming together since I know so many of you love these home renovation sneak peeks. In the meantime, here’s wishing you a beautiful 4th of July weekend for those of you here in the States! I’ll leave you with some of my favorite things from the week.

Americana Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza

Ok, admittedly I’m kind of a sucker for a well done red, white and blue 4th of July dessert. Does it get any more patriotic than that? I’m saying no! I made this sugar cookie fruit pizza with rows of blueberries and strawberries intended to mimic some kind of cool, vintage Americana quilt and I’m kind of thinking I hit the nail on the head with this one. (Feel free to chime in and commend my efforts should you feel so inclined!) The topping is a whipped cream and cream cheese combo spread over top of a sugar cookie base. A sugar cookie base that I made from a mix, because simple is as simple does and I wanted this one to be especially easy and quick for you to pull off. The result is a sincerely tasty dessert that you can bring together in under an hour, and you can even prep the berries and the cookie crust the night before. This also makes a perfect bring-along dessert if you’re attending a 4th of July party instead of hosting so make sure you give this a try! You’ll love it. Promise.
