Cranberry Coconut Smoothie

Sam made me homemade ravioli on our 3rd date, and it pretty much sealed the deal. Gotta love a man that cooks, am I right? 

Even though we both love to spend time in the kitchen, we each have our culinary specialties. If we’re cooking any type of asian recipe, or a baked good, I own the kitchen. He has dibs on mexican food, pizza and pancakes. Before I moved away, this little arrangement worked out really well for us. But being apart for four months has left me really missing him…. and his mexican food, pizza, and pancakes. Oh, and don’t get me started on smoothies.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Cranberry Pecan Streusel

My husband’s family is in town for the holidays. And one of my favorite things about having house guests is the excuse to stock up the fridge and bake up a storm. I consider having a fully stocked kitchen and fresh baked treats on the counter integral in becoming hostess of the mostess.

So naturally, I figured coffee cake would be the perfect solution. With a holiday twist, of course. ‘Tis the season! So I added a Cranberry Pecan Streusel topping to my go-to Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe. And, holy smokes. This recipe is a keeper.
