I don't know about you, but we have been going through the fresh berries around our house like crazy! Between the three of us, we have been eating pints of blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries by the truckload it seems! Parks will sit and eat an entire pint of any given berry if I would let him which is maybe a little excessive, but at least it's fruit and not a unhealthy snack instead! Summertime blueberries are the sweetest and they are perfect for making my healthy vanilla chia blueberry crumble bars!
Today I was supposed to be at the gym at 8:30 for my favorite class, but Parks decided that this was a good morning to sleep in. I don't have the heart to wake him, so I will have to do a self-workout at the gym today, which is totally fine. He is definitely going through a growing spurt I think because he has been sleeping a lot lately, which is A-okay by me! Of course he would never sleep until 8:00 on a weekend day because that would be too perfect right? It would be just about as perfect as my Cacao "Chocolate" Hummus that is made with all good for you ingredients! This slightly sweet and chocolatey hummus makes for the absolute perfect snack or toast topping!

Summer is in full swing and there are so many things I love about this time of year. Pool parties and backyard BBQ's are happening left and right and with that comes the need for a go to drink recipe that can please a crowd. Summertime brings us so many fresh fruits that I can never resist the urge to create refreshing cocktails based upon whatever is in season. One of my absolute favorite cocktails in the summertime is sangria and my sparkling summer peach sangria is perfect to whip up and serve to all of your friends and family all summer long.
Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous 4th of July and if you are anything like me, you are already ready for the weekend! We were on vacation last week and I have been trying to get back into the swing of things since Monday and because of the holiday thrown in, I feel like I haven't known what day it is all week! I do know that I am ready for Friday and it's officially one day away which means cocktails are in my near future. Parks has been on another level of crazy this week and this mama could use one or two delicious cocktails about now. My Rhubarb Basil Martini is summer in a glass and is the perfect weekend cocktail!
Happy almost 4th of July guys! We just got back from the beach yesterday and I am super excited that this week is a holiday week to help me ease back into the swing of things. I am trying to get my mind out of vacation mode and back into working mode after a week relaxation! And while I am trying to get back into the grind around here, one thing is for sure I will be lighting up the grill for the 4th and one of my favorite recipes is definitely going to happen! My easy pork rib marinade is the perfect recipe for fail-proof delicious ribs that would be perfect for your BBQ tomorrow!
Hellooooo summer! Although in Texas it feels like it's been here for a month or two now, it actually just arrived yesterday and I for one think it gives us all permission to drink more cocktails and eat more ice cream. Who's with me? I am all about some ice cream guys, whether it's hot outside or not...but you probably know this by now. However, I have really been trying to make an effort to ditch the sugar and cure my sweet tooth in other ways. I know that you have seen nice cream making it's mark in history by creating a smooth and creamy ice cream base out of frozen BANANAS, which is actually kinda bananas in itself, but also pretty genius. Nevertheless, it is delicious and a great way to satisfy that ice cream craving that comes full circle with the mention of summertime! My strawberry rhubarb cheesecake "nice" cream is going to rock your tastebuds in all the right ways with absolutely zero guilt and you are going to want to make this at every BBQ for the rest of the summer!
