Mascarpone Banana Ice Cream

Some of my fondest childhood memories begin with a simple tune – ice cream truck music. You’re hearing it in your head right now, aren’t you? If I caught even a solitary note on the heels of a soft breeze, I ran like hell to the front yard. I then would proceed to flag down the ice cream man, like a shipwrecked survivor seeing their first airplane in years. If you were lucky enough to catch him, then came the difficult decision. Oh, the choices – orange creamsicle, no, chocolate covered drumstick, no, the handlebar bomb pop. But in the end, what kid could resist …

This post was sponsored by Fresh From Florida as part of Influencer Activation for Influence Central. Have you ever been wandering through the aisles of a market and found yourself wondering where the produce came from? In this day in age, farmers’ markets and local produce shopping is the exception not the rule. Most people simply don’t know where their food comes from or even which country it originated from. It’s a bit sad when you think about it, right? Humans went from hunter-gatherers to subsistence farmers to uneducated mass consumers.

The husband and wife team of Kennedy Development recently renovated this home to give it a coastal feel. So let’s walk through this crisp design and analyze what makes it coastal, shall we? When initially looking at the kitchen, it clearly has a summery ambiance but the reasons aren’t …
