It is so hot! The only good thing about this is that it’s perfect ice cream weather. I’ve rounded up some great ice cream party finds at Etsy.

1. Mini Wood Bowls Set of Two Mint Green by WindandWillowHome on Etsy; 2. Rainbow Candy Toppings for Cupcakes Ice Cream by BakersBlingShop; 3. Dansk ice cream cups Danish modern dessert by CoolVintageFinds; 4. 15 Melt in your Mouth Peanut Butter Cups English by IngridsGoodies; 5. 4 Wooden MiniScoops Great For Serving Toppings by SucreShop; 6. Reserved for Teresa Retro Turquoise Salton Big Chill by Vintiqued.

I love the mini wood bowls and the mini wooden scoops. What a cute way to serve toppings! I’m bummed that the ice cream maker is a reserve. It’s such a pretty color! None of the other ice cream makers on Etsy really caught my eye,  so I guess we’ll all just have to watch for a turquoise big chill of our very own.

Jess’s Picks

No picks from Mary who is taking the week off. Mine are full of yummy food and bright colors though so hopefully it will keep you sated until Mary returns next week.

  • Monday morning, Real Simple emailed me this recipe for Eggplant Parmesan Rollatini. I was in the mood for something along these lines anyway, so we made it for dinner on Monday. It was delicious! And not really that much work. It would be great to take along to a potluck.
  • I love the shade of yellow in this feeling like a citron sorbet… roundup at Oh Joy!. I pull of yellow pretty well — so well that all mom bought me for years was yellow and I rebelled against it until I finally reached adulthood and would admit that she was right.

French Macarons

Trying to remove sugar from my diet lately means that I look at these and my mouth waters. Oh, French Macarons, you tempt me so. Not to mention, I just found a great place in Austin to order these…sigh. If you’ve never had macarons and aren’t on a sugar free diet like me, then you should find them ASAP. Delicious.
