Baking and Sweets
Bright red apples, cool crisp fall days, sweet smells of baked goods wafting through the kitchen. Certain sights and smells have a way of conjuring up memories of home. Living throughout the United States and traveling around the world has put me in the unique position to miss home at times.
As a person who is at the very beginning of the millennial generation and the tail end of gen x we are dreamers, risk takers, goal setters, and proverbial wanderers. We set the trends, and we build tech businesses and empires all from our mac books. Our generation craves new experiences, and we are always looking for the next big adventure. This means that we move frequently, expand and grow our knowledge of the world that surrounds us. But it also means that we often call many places home and that homesickness is nearly commonplace.

Cashews, chocolate, and coconut... have I died and gone to heaven? These small but incredibly decadent truffles are sinfully delicious and so easy to make! White chocolate, although commonly thought of as chocolate is not actually chocolate. White chocolate is the cocoa butter that comes off the cacao bean when it is processed into chocolate. Creamy and smooth, white chocolate is perfectly suited to the crunchy saltiness of the cashew. What really sets this truffle recipe apart is the coconut. Not just any ordinary coconut will do for this amazing creation; this recipe will be using the delicious Macaroon coconut.
