Need a weekend pick me up? These coffee ice cream sandwiches are the perfect project! Rich, decadent coffee ice cream is sandwiched between two soft, chewy chocolate cookies. What more could you want?

To me, ice cream sandwiches are such a happy treat – and a reminder of one of my childhood favorites. This version elevates the kid-loved treat into something that is definitely grown-up.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sweet Rolls #SpringSweetsWeek

One of my favorite spring activities is strawberry picking! Ever year, we visit an awesome local farm, load ourselves up on gorgeous betters, and then spend the next week putting them up and making a ton of treats.

These strawberry rhubarb sweet rolls are a favorite – and I always put up extra filling so we can have them in the doldrums of winter, too!

My mantra for the year is “keep things simple”. I adopted it in January to be a reminder that simple can be plenty good too – and these milkshakes are a perfect example. They taste like you’re drinking a slice of cake!

Five ingredients, ten minutes, and this fun treat is ready for sipping. When was the last time your dessert was that easy?

Baklava Cake for Passover #SpringSweetsWeek

I just love baklava – it’s definitely one of my favorite desserts to get when we go out – but it only gets made at home sparingly. Baklava can be a lot of work!

This beautiful cake has the great flavors of baklava – with significantly less work. A nutty cake is soaked in a honey-citrus syrup and then topped off with candied orange slices and nuts.

Brownie & Ice Cream Peeps Pops #SpringSweetsWeek

Every year, I see bloggers posting fun Easter recipes involving ice cream or cute pictures of their kids in shorts, and I get incredibly jealous. Easter in NJ is still cold. We’re not thinking of ice cream yet and Easter dresses come with sweaters.

But this year? Easter is so late that ice cream seems totally justified! I mean, it’s only a few days before May – and May is practically summer.
