peach galette

Our first galette that we made over the weekend!  We used Trader Joe's frozen pie crust and sliced yellow peaches (some beautiful organic ones from the farmer's market that my aunt brought us).

nate's 4th birthday

Since Nate loves chocolate, we had a chocolate party for his 4th birthday which included a chocolate tasting and chocolate fondue.  We nibbled on Woodblock Chocolate 70% Dark, Mast Brothers Maple Chocolate, Videri Chocolate Factory Dark Milk Chocolate and Fruition Toasted White Chocolate.  We also had chocolate fondue and a salted caramel dark chocolate fondue with shortbread, Speculoos cookies and waffle strips for dipping (we used Julian’s Recipe Belgian Waffles).  For the salted caramel dark chocolate fondue, I added a couple of tablespoons of Fat Toad Farm's goat's milk caramel and some sea salt to semi-sweet chocolate chunks, heated it up 30 seconds at a time in the microwave, stirring in milk later on to make the consistency smooth.

The felt ball garland colors were originally inspired by a set at Hello Maypole, but I think they might have been sold out at the time, so I ended up purchasing a set of felt balls in the same colors from Benzie Design.  One of Nate’s favorite gifts was a funny little donut cat (yes, exactly what you’re thinking!) from Etsy shop Marnin Saylor.  I also got this adorable pretend chocolate fondue set from Hape Toys for the party, which was a hit with Avery and Nate.  Now they can have fondue whenever the mood strikes!
