Martha Stewart's Sugar-Dusted Macaroon Trees
2 1/2 cups finely shredded unsweetened coconut
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
5 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly combine coconut, granulated sugar, egg whites, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl using your hands or a wooden spoon. Form 2 tablespoons of the mixture at a time into 2-inch-tall trees with your hands, using your fingertips to make pointed tops. Transfer each tree to a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing them 1 inch apart.
Bake until edges are golden and trees are firm, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet on a wire rack at least 15 minutes. Cookies can be made up to 1 day ahead; dust with confectioners' sugar just before serving.

What an absolutely beautiful home in Calistoga, California. I love the neutral palette throughout the home and yard. The kitchen is seriously stunning with all white cabinets contrasted against rich wood floors and open beamed ceilings. And could this backyard patio & fireplace get any dreamier?!

I love the combination of blue and white for just about anything. And when it's combined with a gorgeous pattern like this, the result is perfection!
Dreaming of having this tiled in my house someday...

A Moscow Mule is one of the most delicious vodka drinks around. If you haven't had one, I suggest you make one now to celebrate the weekend!
1/4 cup vodka
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 cup chilled ginger beer
1 lime wedge
Fill glass with ice. Add vodka and lime juice, then ginger beer. Stir to mix. Garnish with lime wedge and enjoy.
