I know, I know – there are probably a million recipes on Pinterest for orecchiette with peas, pancetta, and parmesan. But my recipe is made with all pantry and freezer ingredients, so it’s a super easy meal to throw together on nights when you just don’t want to adult anymore. Or those days when you don’t feel like taking two kids to the grocery store.

Tonight, we’re having PJ Family Movie Night at home and watching the original animated Beauty and the Beast. It’s a classic!
We’re all pretty beat – we spent the morning at Washington Farms picking strawberries, playing, eating ice cream, and getting a tiny bit sunburned. So it’s the perfect night for a movie – we can relax and put our feet up!
To go with our movie, we made a quick themed snack. I saw these adorable Puff Pastry Apple Roses on Facebook a few days ago and they looked so cute and easy – I knew I wanted to try making them!
My mother-in-law makes the BEST coconut cake, hands down.
Every year I request this cake for my birthday and it’s amazing. Light and fluffy, but also creamy and coco-nutty. Perfectly sweet, but not too sweet. And the frosting is dreamy. It’s the BEST!
Want her recipe? Too bad! She’s taking it to her grave. I’m serious! She won’t share it! Maybe if you call her and offer her money, she might reveal her secrets. But good luck. I gave her two perfect grandchildren and she won’t share it with me. So until that recipe is set free, this one will have to do.
