Homemade Marshmallows

Yesterday evening we finally got around to making some homemade marshmallows. We decided to make mexican vanilla marshmallows for out first attempt at them. They were fairly easy to make and I think they turned out well. They are definitely tasty! We used the recipe from smitten kitchen's blog that was adapted from Gourmet magazine. Which can be found here-Marshmallows Recipe. What flavor do you think we should try next? I was thinking perhaps a raspberry or a strawberry.

Etsy Garden Inspired Finds

It has been a while since I posted a blog post of Etsy Finds, so I figured it was about time. I love seeing all the beautiful flowers and plants that start growing during the spring and summer months. And also eating the tasty vegetables from our garden along with the fresh herbs. Here's just a few garden inspired items that I found on Etsy:
