Can you hear the ocean??🐚💗

More pink conch has arrived today just in time to celebrate your love! Each stone is cut and shaped by hand and each piece signed & handcrafted by Navajo artisans. We are in love with the old style navajo pink conch bracelets and naja pendants. Timeless pieces and true heirloom quality we are in love!
Did you know that 1 in 10,000 conch shells produce a single pink pearl that is prized? The conch species live in tropical waters throughout the world, including the Caribbean, West Indies, and the Mediterranean. They live in relatively shallow waters, including reef and seagrass habitats. A queen conch can grow to be over a foot long and can live for as long as 30 years—other species have been known to live to 40 or more. The Queen Conch has a large, spiral shell often lined in pink. The conch's mantle, a thin layer of tissue located between the body and the shell, creates the shell. The conch builds the hard shell from calcium carbonate that it extracts from the seas. One of the most famous musical instruments was found in Marsoulas cave the Pyrenees Mountains, in France in 1932. CT scans showed how ancient humans adapted the Concho to make it a musical instrument, such as creating a mouthpiece that was held together by an organic matter with clay. In the Aztec culture, the conch played an important role in rituals, war, art, music, mythology, festivals, and even the calendar.

Bittersweet Chocolate Rocky Road Bars🤎

The truly satisfying and intense flavor of chocolate proudly comes through in this delectably decadent Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce. It's no wonder that this is our best selling hot fudge sauce.

Bittersweet Chocolate Rocky Road Bars
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup cold, unsalted butter, cut into pats
1 egg yolk, beaten with 2 Tablespoons half and half or milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 jar Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce (Available in our shop kitchen)
1 cup pecans or walnuts, coarsely chopped
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup coconut, shredded
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x9-inch baking pan.
Place flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine.
Add butter. Process until the mixture is like coarse meal.
Add the yolk mixture and vanilla. Blend until the dough forms clumps. Stop several times during this process to scrape down sides of bowl.
Pat dough evenly over the bottom of the greased pan. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden on top and brown on the edges. Let cool on a rack.
Warm the jar of Bittersweet Chocolate Sauce.
Spread a thin layer on top of cooked cookie bottom (use enough to allow nuts to stick to cookie).
Sprinkle with chopped nuts, then marshmallows, then coconut.
Drizzle remainder of sauce over the top of the bars in a crosshatch design.
Allow bars to set until chocolate sauce firms up.

New Cherries Jubilee coffee☕️🍒

Saturday morning’s are great sipping on a cup of our new Cherries Jubilee coffee…freshly ground it smells so heavenly! A delicate, sweet cherry flavored coffee combined with fragrant pieces of Seville orange. Irish Cream, Highlander Grogg, & Jamaican Me Crazy beans have also arrived and our favorite Cinnamon Chocolate Almond. Do you know the health benefits to drinking coffee? It is amazing and so interesting…
Coffee beans have over 100 biologically active compounds. These substances can help improve mood & cognitive function, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, improve insulin sensitivity, boost metabolism, inhibit the gut’s absorption of fat and block receptors known to be involved with abnormal heart rhythms.
If you love coffee's ability to get you going in the morning, rest easy. You’re probably receiving health benefits along with your caffeine fix.
From diversifying your gut microbiome to lowering the risk of some conditions — coffee is a beloved beverage with plenty of perks.
