Guava Shortbread Cookies

You may have noticed that I love posting recipes for Valentine’s Day. I swear I’m not one of those lovey-dovey cheeseballs. But, I can’t help but get excited about a holiday that’s semi-revolved around sweets. Frankly, I can use all the excuses I can to bake. And, uuum, eat.

In the past I’ve made lots of delicious sweet treats like…

Conversation Heart Cookies..

Brownie Marshmallow Sandwiches with Strawberry Sauce

and His n’ Hers Ice Cream Floats.

All of these were fun, but this year I recreated my Chocolate Dipped Macadamia Nut Shortbread recipe with a new twist: the sweet and tangy flavor of guava. And with that, I give you… drumroll… Guava Shortbread Cookies. Ta dah!

Coconut Guava Popsicles

Since we don’t have family in the area, we rarely get drop-by visitors. But we were in for a huge surprise this weekend when Sam’s sister, brother-in-law and nephew drove up from California and showed up at our doorstep Thursday afternoon. Sam and I are probably the least spontaneous people, but we were happy to reorganize our weekend around our unexpected visitors. Our plans quickly shifted to focus around kid-friendly fun, like walks in the park, running through fountains, and eating popsicles until we got brain freeze. All in all a pretty fabulous 4th of July.
