Another year, another Coachella in the books! Although, I am a little sad that I’ll be missing out on Stagecoach, as it’s the most fun and easiest (work-wise) of the festivals. I’m really glad to be home, but it is short-lived, as I’m leaving tomorrow for a wedding in Miami! I’ve never been to Florida before so I’m a little excited; plus, I get to hang out with some awesome people and celebrate love!
I must mention that I put together some fantastic recipes for you guys before I left for Indio, but I didn’t end up having any spare time (seriously, none) to post them, so I’m finally getting around to it! But, before we get to the pizookie, I wanted to share some photos from my 3 weeks in the desert.
It was an interesting time to say the least. Dust storms, tackling a thief (that was weird!), dealing with many set-backs, spending time with some great friends and of course, karaoke! I’ve missed my kitchen, bed, shower, dogs and family/friends, maybe the blogging bit, too.
Without further ado, I bring you a Spring-inspired, Lemon Raspberry Pizookie! I took a shortcut and topped it with an Almond-based Vanilla Ice Cream, but you can definitely make your own. As much as I love the traditional chocolate chip pizookies, this version is insanely good, and not TOO sweet. I can’t wait to try out some different variations of this in the future.
