something's gotta give...

Like most people, I have watched my fair share of movies this past year. I've watched movies from my youth, comedies, dramas, documentaries, you name it... Then there are those movies that you watch over and over again. The ones that just make you feel good inside. For me, "Something's Gotta Give" is one of those movies. It makes me laugh, it transports me back to the east coast, and its interiors inspire me. If you have seen it, you know what I'm talking about. And if you haven't seen it, grab a glass of wine and press play! Enjoy!

they're back {sink skirts}...

The sink skirt is making a comeback, and I’m all in! Sink skirts can be used to hide a multitude of eyesores, such as exposed plumbing, while also creating some extra storage. But adding a sink skirt is also a great way to add some texture, pattern, and color to spaces that can sometimes be a bit cold and utilitarian. And if you ever want to change the fabric or give it a good cleaning, it’s easy to do, being that most sink skirts are attached either using Velcro or a decorative rod. What are you waiting for? Start picking out those fabrics!

{recipe from... h e r e}

Chocolate Dipped Smores Ice Cream Sandwiches 

For Cookies:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons whole milk

For Sandwiches:


  1. Line a 9-by-9-inch baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Prepare the toasted marshmallow ice cream as specified in the recipe, churning according to manufacturer’s directions. Spread churned ice cream into prepared baking pan. Drizzle with marshmallow topping (if desired), and swirl slightly into the ice cream with a knife or small spatula. Cover with foil or plastic wrap and freeze overnight until completely firm.
  2. For cookies, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstartch, baking soda, and salt and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter on medium-high speed until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sugars, honey, and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Add half of the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until mostly incorporated. Add milk and continue to mix until incorporated, followed by remaining dry ingredients until dough comes together.
  4. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2 1/4-inch (approximately) squares. I’d recommend measuring the baking pan used for the ice cream, and cutting the cookies to the precise size you’ll need so as not to waste any ice cream. I had a 9-by-9-inch baking pan, which worked perfectly with a 2 1/4-inch square cookie cutter, but you can use a ruler and knife or pizza cutter as well.
  5. Transfer cut squares to prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1 inch of space between cookies. Re-roll the scraps and cut again until no dough remains. You should end up with about 32 cookies.
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until just barely starting to color; the edges and bottoms will not be noticeably brown. Do not overbake. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheets, then transfer to a zip-top bag and freeze until ready to use.
  7. To assemble sandwiches, arrange half of cookies, bottom side up, on a baking sheet. Remove ice cream from freezer and lift out the entire block of frozen ice cream. Working quickly, cut into 16 even squares (the same size as your cookies). Place a square of ice cream on each upside-down cookie, then top with remaining cookies, pressing lightly to adhere. Return entire tray to freezer and freeze until completely solid once again.
  8. Prepare a second baking sheet by lining with parchment paper. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes to thoroughly chill. Meanwhile, gently melt chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave (heat in 15 second intervals at medium heat, stirring well between each interval). Working quickly in batches of 2-3, dip sandwiches half-way into chocolate and place on baking sheet in the freezer. You want to work quickly here to avoid melting as much as possible, so place each freshly dipped sandwich directly on the baking sheet in the freezer. Having a second set of hands to help open and close the freezer is always helpful. Once chocolate is set, you can wrap each sandwich in foil or plastic wrap, and store in a zip-top bag for up to 2 months.
