Father’s Day Strawberry & Coconut Whipped Cream Tart

Last weekend happened to be Father’s Day, so I had to of course make something for my wonderful dad.

As some of you know, my dad is gluten free, sugar free, and mostly vegan. Given these circumstances, coming up with something that he would really enjoy was a bit challenging. While searching for ideas on Pinterest, I came across a picture of a beautiful strawberry tart that came from a wonderful blogger- What Jessica Baked Next. This inspired me to make a tart like dessert.

Almond & Vanilla Granola {Picture Tutorial}

Spritz Cookies

Last week my mom dragged me to the thrift shop. While there, out of boredom I went to the kitchen utensils section and found an old vintage cookie press for $4! It came with 12 disks and three decorating tips. I didn’t know how to put the pieces together so I searched for vintage cookie presses online and found out that it was called the “Mirro Cooky Press”. I also found out that it was worth up to $50! The best part about it was that the cookies came out much better than my new (wilton) cookie press. Here is the link to the spritz cookie recipehttp://www.marthastewart.com/318844/cookie-press-cookies?search_key=cookie%20press%20cookies
