When I think of Summer I think of camping, and while that may have not happened this year, I was able to find this delicious and fun drink that embodies all of that. This flaming cocktail not only tastes just like a S’more, but you can actually roast a few marshmallows over it when you set it on fire!
I can remember sitting on my couch watching the Kardashians and admiring their lushes home bar. My “bar” at this point was just a sad mini-fridge and looked very…college dorm-like. I wasn’t very proud of it. However, instead of remaining jealous, I started to consider what I could do to dress up this space. I thought up this hack and not only does it look gorgeous, but it wasn’t that expensive either!
If you, like me, are a bit hesitant to sit in a restaurant at the moment it can be disappointing to forgo favorite dishes. I also have found that I don’t always like spending a ton of money on a meal (which is what it turns into if you count drinks, dessert, tip, and tax. Making this at home was really special too. I put on some of my favorite music and ended up sitting outside and enjoying the sunset. This is luxury filled but I think spoiling yourself once in a while is absolutely necessary, and I hope this inspires you!
Summer in my mind is all about eating healthy, and I know sometimes when the mornings are hot, I want a breakfast that’s not. One thing that is not only nutritious but delicious is this Mermaid Lagoon Smoothie Bowl. It tastes just like a Banana smoothie but is made healthy with the addition of Spirulina and Whey Protein. If you’re wanting to channel your inner Mermaid you MUST try this smoothie!
I am always trying to elevate my cooking. I want the people who visit and eat at my house (and my lucky hubby) to always feel like they’re eating at a restaurant. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m all for an easy weeknight meal, but we all want to feel special, and being able to cook something like this not only feels great but tastes AMAZING especially if you want something refreshing for summer.
If you’ve read this blog long enough, you’ll know that I ADORE seafood ESPECIALLY during the Summer. So it should be no surprise that I’m about to tell you the recipe for these crab cakes with a remoulade that is so good that my husband often puts it on the salad that I serve alongside these cakes. If you’ve got a craving for all things crab, keep reading!
I feel like summer is made for seafood, so I’m basically obsessed with all things ocean living. If you’ve never had curry before this is a nice gentle place to start. Thai curry can be really spicy, but this has a gentle flavor that doesn’t overshadow the taste of the Mahi Mahi. For a quick weeknight meal, this was easy to make and delicious to eat!
This was the first mixed drink I made when I started to get into the art of making mixed drinks. Growing up in Florida, the only drinks I really knew were touristy mixed drinks. I’m not saying you can’t have a Manhattan or a Cosmopolitan in Florida, but the subtropical climate almost demands something refreshing and fruity. This embodies everything you want in a sweat refreshing drink that you can enjoy by a pool with your burger.
I LOVE the tropics. I’ve never been to Hawaii but if it’s anything like Puerto Rico it’s got to be gorgeous. Lately, I’ve been feeling the pull of the beach. The closest beach we have here is Revere and it’s okay, but not like the Florida beaches I grew up with. So I’m trying to celebrate the beginning of summer the best way I can and that’s through food. That’s when I had this delicious idea to make this Hawaiian Fried Rice and now the recipe is ALL YOURS!
I’ve been making this drink for a while now and to be honest it’s my go-to when I want something fun in the evenings. The combo of Amaretto and Vanilla Flavored Vodka causes this drink to not even taste alcoholic. The recipe is also super simple to make!
