Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches With Salted Caramel

I wanted my last recipe of the summer to be a crowd pleaser and truly celebrate the season. Freshly baked Snickerdoodle cookies sandwiched between French vanilla ice cream. If this yummy treat doesn't scream summer I don't know what does. When serving a little extra salted caramel drizzled on top doesn't hurt. Check out the semi-homemade cookie recipe here and the salted caramel recipe here. When baking the cookies I suggest baking them for about 9 minutes to make sure they stay nice and chewy. Now do you really think I will wait until next summer to whip up another batch of these? ...I didn't think so.

Happy Friday!! I'm hoping to indulge in some good old fashion summer fun these last few weeks of August. I refuse to do any fall related posts until after Labor Day. Don't get me wrong its my absolute favorite season in regards to fashion, but I really just want to enjoy the little that is left of this summer. That being said I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Baked and Wired

As much as I enjoyed seeing all the historical sights of DC I must say my favorite part of our little trip was driving into Georgetown. Seeing the colonial style apartments and houses was a little like traveling back in time. There were also an array of restaurants, bakeries, bistros, and shops to choose from, but I knew exactly were I wanted to go - enter Baked and Wired. This super charming cupcake shop/coffeehouse is a must for those craving impeccable coffee and amazingly delicious cupcakes and baked goods. I decided to go with The Flap Jack - a brown butter, maple infused cupcake with maple icing and candied bacon (yes, bacon). Chris decided on a classic coconut cupcake. They were both PERFECT. Generously sized, not too much frosting, not dry, just all around amazing. I could kick myself for not buying some to bring home.  If and when I'm around town again I will definitely be back!

Washington, D.C.

Chris and I took a quick little trip to Washington DC on Sunday. He had never been and I had once before when I was about 8 years old. There is definitely a ton to see and do. Despite the rain, we made the most of our mini visit. Here are a few photos, video to come later this week ; )

Channeling Colonel Sanders

The thin black satin ribbon tie on this shirt instantly reminded me of Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame.  The Colonel definitely had the right idea.  This blouse is the perfect transitional piece for fall.  I can see myself pairing it with a leather skirt or a nice pair of menswear inspired trousers.
