Have a Wonderful Father's Day!

We are off to the "Happiest Place on Earth" for a little graduation celebration. While we are gone, I am leaving you with one idea for a delicious Father's Day. My daughter made a beautiful Coconut Cake using THIS recipe from Ina Garten. Having something home made by the kids for their Dad....a perfect way to say "I love you!"
I am going to miss her when she's left for college....don't get me started!
Have a wonderful Father's Day Weekend!

Oh, I love that Barfoot Contessa Coconut cake. But, I'm sure the fact that your daughter made it, makes it taste even better. Have fun with Mickey and the gang! xoxo
