new beginnings

Hello dear readers!
Kelsey here.  You may have noticed that it's been a bit quiet over here for the past couple of months, and we wanted to let you know why!

I have absolutely loved being a part of p.s.heart for the past couple of years, and have had so much fun learning and growing with Clara and Jordyn.  All of our lives are in such different places right now, and I feel like it's time to move ahead and have my own blog again.

What will it look like?  Well, I'll mainly be going back to my roots and focusing mostly on food (my first love!), with the occasional outfit or photography post thrown in.
I'll also be archiving some of my favorite posts from p.s.heart over onto the new blog as well, and updating older recipes as well.

Here's a little sneak peek at my new blog....The Farmer's Daughter.  I would absolutely LOVE if you'd like to follow along over there with me!  Here are my new facebook, bloglovin', and instagram pages.  I can't wait to start this new adventure, and hope you'll come along for the ride!


Clara will be keeping p.s.heart, and will be posting here and there as she has time.  (Keep an eye out for some gorgeous house updates!).  And you can always follow along with her photography website and facebook page!

Thank you!!

happy halloween // a styled dessert table


Jordyn and I are so ecstatic to have a mini styled shoot up on Tiny Prints blog!  We had so much fun with all the details, and are so happy with how it turned out.

Caramel corn, pumpkin cookies, salt water taffy and fresh apple cider are just a few of our favorites treats at this time of the year! Pumpkins make the easiest decorations, and add wonderful texture and colour to a dessert table. Put all of that together, and you have sweet and simple Halloween party!  We got our invitations, stickers, napkins and gift tags from Tiny Prints, and we're in love with their huge selection, as well as the fact that nearly everything they sell is customizable.  So wonderful!

s'mores ice cream


This ice cream might just be the epitome of Summer.  All the flavours of our favorite campfire treat come together in a delicious explosion, and we think you'll love it!
(In case you were wondering....no, I still haven't been camping yet.  Don't judge me.)

As the days are slowly getting shorter, and the mornings a bit crisper, why not celebrate the last days of Summer with something epic?


S'mores ice cream.  Best of both worlds? I think so!

S'mores Ice Cream
Ingredients:
 2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
Directions:
1)  Mix together milk, cream, sugar, graham cracker crumbs, salt and vanilla.
2)  Pour mixture into ice cream maker.
3)  Once the mixture just starts to thicken, very slowly add in the mini marshmallows and chocolate pieces.
4)  Pour into a container and allow to harden in the freezer for 12-24 hours before serving.
Optional: Top with a graham cracker, a couple pieces of dark chocolate, and a roasted marshmallow! 
*You can roast your marshmallows on a cookie sheet in the oven on broil if you don't want to go out and start a fire.  Just don't take your eyes off of them or they'll burn!


Also, the pumpkin spice takeover needs to hold on for a second....we're not done with Summer here!

b&w desert portraits.

Black and white portraits of the lovely Miss Kelsey back from our trip out to the desert terrain of Kamloops together. This girl is an absolute doll and I could take photos of her all day long - she's seriously a photographer's dream and I adore how these photos turned out - introspective, creative, a little moody, with a splash of drama, and all in all beautiful. 

For the full post, visit my photography page and see some splashes of colour and glory of Kelsey's mustard and chambray outfit.

coconut mint blueberry cookies


I adore blueberries. They're definitely one of my favourite summer fruits and I've been buying and eating them by the crateful! These cookies were inspired by our blueberry coconut mojitos recipe, and I won't lie... I was extremely nervous about how these would turn out! I was craving blueberries and lemon and mint and coconut, but wanted them in pastry form... so I took a leap of faith and made these cookies and am sooo happy with how delicious these babies turned out! If you're a blueberry lover, I promise you can't go wrong with these.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of coconut oil
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/3 cup coconut flakes
1 cup fresh (or frozen!) blueberries
1/4 cup of shredded mint leaves

Preheat your oven to 35 degrees. Sift together your dry ingredients while in a separate bowl, mix together your wet ingredients. Slowly mix both parts in together. Leave your blueberries for last and gently mix them in so that they don't explode and make a big mess! Then bake for 12-15 minutes.

*sidenote: not that it'll be a problem... but I recommend that you eat ALL of these the day you make them! I saved a half dozen of them and found that because of the milk and blueberries that the cookies got a little soggy the next day and weren't as scrumptious :) *
Enjoy these delicious summer treats!

wanderlust: mexico city

Folding clothes, checking lists, zipping up suitcases, jumping in the car, waiting in lines, sharing mug shots, walking through security, finding the window seat, taking off, excited chatter, dozing off, poking at mysterious food, filling out customs, the turbulent landing, and then...

Bienvenido! 

I'm in Mexico City with 14 teenagers, 7 other leaders, and so many wonderful, loving, and welcoming locals who embraced us immediately and welcomed us into their lives and families. 
Here's a look into my two week adventure in Huixquilucan and Monte Sion, Mexico serving and being served alongside some incredible souls.
