Summer vacation may and may not be a mom’s favorite time of the year. It’s a decision that most likely changes every day. But what doesn’t changes is the joy of an upcoming family trip. The months of waiting, the weeks of planning, the days of packing. The research, the reservations, more research. Shopping for new comfortable walking shoes (don’t tell me I’m the only one!).

Ahh, the anticipation!

It’s fun, exciting but it’s so exhausting in the same time.

This summer I’m living out of my suitcase for almost 7 weeks! That’s a lot of planning, pre-plannig and pre-pre-pre planning. With little over 4 weeks spent outside US, I have to pack and be prepared for everything. Rain or shine. Beach and mountain. Day and night….

If I had to pick one fruit to describe summer spend at my grandparents when I was a wee one, cherry would be the perfect fit.

We did not have any cherry trees in our small orchard, but the house next to us had a big one and my cousins and I were pretty much the only kids who would devour all those juicy red cherries as soon as the school was out for the summer. Carefully, we would climb the tree and didn’t get down until we were so full we could hardly move. The next day we would do it all over again until there were no cherries left.There’s no surprise cherries are one of my favorite summer some fruit. Little gems of sugary sweetness. And paired with a silky cheesecake sandwiched between a chocolate crust and chocolate crumble topping – summer in a scrumptious bar! …

Love M&M'S? You're gonna love this M&M'S cake! Incredible simple to make, loaded with candy and topped with a smooth ganache and more candies! It's a M&M's paradise cake!

According to both my daughter and my husband sprinkles and M&M’S should make the world go round. Every time I ask what cake should I make they both reply: a colorful one!

Since I’ve already made a sprinkle cake for her birthday, it was time to take care of my husband’s request. A cake loaded, LOADED with M&M’S!!!

This incredible simple white cake is packed with M&M’S minis milk chocolate baking bits both in the batter and the frosting. And if that wasn’t enough, I finished it with more M&M’S candy. Of course you can skip the M&M’S on top but why would you? Don’t you like how colorful the cake looks like? It puts a smile on everyone’s face. You should have seen how my husband’s eyes lit up when he noticed the cake in the fridge!…

Create the most irresistible summer treat in less than 5 minutes. Iced coffee floats! No soda required!

Floats are synonymous with summer vacation and with the temperatures getting hotter and summer quickly approaching I thought it would be fun to put a twist on a childhood sweet treat – a grown up version of ice-cream floats!

I love coffee! Sip on it. Bake with it. Iced. Frozen. In a cupcake. For breakfast. I love it all!

There’s no surprise my favorite part of the day is the coffee break.

I do my best to find a few minutes each day to just sit down and sip on some coffee. It refreshes me. It puts things in a new light….

Easy to make cocoa brownies packed with flaked coconut and chopped chocolate. Rich, dense and chewy, these coconut brownies are topped with coconut ice-cream and chocolate syrup for the ultimate brownie sundae!

My husband and I have different opinions about food. I’m all for trying new things while he is all about the classics. It may have something to do with the fact that I didn’t grow up here in the States and don’t have childhood favorite treats like he has.

Nevertheless, I’m a girl who gets bored with the same dish made over and over again. I’m always looking for new recipes, new ways to put a twist on an old one.

Most of the time we compromise. Especially when we have guests over like we did this past weekend.

I take something that he loves, like a sundae, find something I know he enjoys (coconut) and combine the two – this is how this irresistible coconut brownie sundae became our after dinner treat Sunday night. There’s nothing quite like a brownie sundae to finish a delicious meal!

Who can resist a dense, chewy brownie topped with ice-cream and a rich, chocolatey sauce?…
