Mango Coconut Cream Parfait

2 cups piled with chopped mango and coconut cream

This mango coconut cream parfait is super simple, truly celebrates the mango and is barely more work than cutting up a mango and a little light whisking. This is the kind of thing I save my mangos for and man is it worth it.

Soft and Chewy Brown Sugar and Nutmeg Cookies

I LOVE chocolate chip cookies. So much that I really have difficulty making any other kind when the desire for cookies hits. Sure, shortbread is great, chocolate is wonderful, snickerdoodles, peanut butter. Yeah, all good. But as good as chocolate chip cookies? Please.

But I wanted to get out of my rut and these delicious brown sugar and nutmeg cookies were born! I still wanted that soft, chewy, melted brown butter, gooey in the center thing that is like THE POINT of cookies, but I wasn’t feeling the chocolate. So these are soft, mellow brown sugar cookies with a kick of eggnoggy nutmeg and a little cardamom. The nutmeg is so fragrant without being bitter, and the bite of this cookie is perfect. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do!

Happy Birthday, Mum!

One of my favorite things is to design meals or recipes for my family and friends that is specific to their loves and needs. There’s something so satisfying about having an audience who you understand and can make something totally personalized for.

Today is my wonderful mother’s birthday, and since we can’t be in the same place I did the next best thing to making her birthday dinner. I came up with a meal I thought she’d love—salad, entree, and dessert, recipes below—and tasked my sisters and Dad with making it for her. Thanks guys! I thought you guys might like it too. Maybe some of you can make this for mother’s day if you have a Mum like mine!
