Hungry For a Piece of Home

My dear friends’ daughter, Lauren, has a terrific cooking blog. She was kind enough to offer to guest post here today. What a treat!

GUEST POST: Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate Drizzle

Growing up in Miami I was constantly surrounded by delicious food.  Both at all of the fabulous restaurants peppered throughout the city and at home.  (My mom is an absolutely incredible cook, and her food rivals any restaurant cuisine!)
When I moved to Orlando eight years ago I started cooking frequently and learned to re-create many of the delicious, eclectic dishes I still crave from
Miami.

My parents moved into a beautiful house on the edge of Coral Gables and Coconut Grove a few years ago.  I visit them often and love to test new recipes on them while I’m home.  I was reminiscing about Coconut Grove and created this recipe for Coconut Macaroons.

Chewy bites of shredded coconut complemented by a dark chocolate drizzle. They’re the perfect dessert to finish a meal or cure a sweet tooth any time of day.  And they remind me of home sweet home.

Hugs, kisses + yummy dishes… xoxo,

Home Sold: 3613 Bayview Road, Coconut Grove

One of my favorite Coconut Grove homes that I’ve listed, closed last week. My house crush at 3613 Bayview Road was a terrific experience from beginning to end. The sellers were a dream. Showing the property was always delightful. The buyers were beyond lovely. A real estate trifecta!

The experience was only made sweeter when I received this warm note from the seller after thanking him for the opportunity.

“It was a pleasure for us as well, could not even imagine any one else being as knowledgable or as fabulous to work with, only regret is we won’t be seeing you on a continuing basis.”

Additionally, while packing, the sellers found late 1960s paperwork for the listing of their home – prior to them buying it. It was listed for $44,000! That was a long, long time ago.

Regardless, I think the memories made in this very special Coconut Grove home are priceless.
