Homemade Lemonade

Put the Countrytime back on the shelf.  Don’t even look at the jug on the juice aisle.  Lemonade is one of the best parts of the summertime, in my opinion, and NOTHING beats homemade!  And I promise, as is most of the recipes for everything I make, it’s SOOO easy!  And might take 5 minutes longer than scooping out that powdery mix, but again, I promise, it is 100 times better. Homemade Lemonade One bag of lemons (8-9 average-sized lemons), plus one more[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday: Pinterest Recipe Reviews

Happy Monday friends!  First of all, I apologize for my unintentional absence last week!  We are in the end-of-the-school-year homestretch, and I am OVERWHELMED with end of year celebrations, teacher appreciation, etc., etc., etc…times three!!  SO, I was bogged down with about three thousand things, but everytime I sat down to write for the blog…NOTHING.  But, I am BACK! Secondly, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day yesterday!  We had a lovely day (the weather was GORGEOUS), and I had[Read more]

Key Lime Pie Pops

Once the weather starts to get warmer, one of our favorite things to do is eat popsicles out on the front porch after dinner.  Now, don’t get me wrong, a good ole Bomb Pop or classic cherry-grape-orange twin pops definitely do the trick, and we get those at the store sometimes too, but why even pay the $3 when you can so easily make your own popsicles with stuff you already have in your fridge and pantry?! When I saw this recipe[Read more]

Fruity Wine Slush

  During the winter, I pretty much stick to red wine.  But when it starts getting warm, my alcohol preferences broaden substantially!  I like white wines, cold beers, and the occasional cocktail.  And over the weekend, I whipped up a super easy drink that was refreshing and fun, and perfect for sipping on while watching the kids play in the yard! My Fruity Wine Slush couldn’t be easier to make, and it only takes TWO ingredients!  And no liquor store[Read more]

Meal Plan Monday

Hi Friends!  Back to reality after Spring Break, womp-waaaaahhhh.  But that’s okay, we had a GREAT spring break (will share a post soon!), and I think the kids are actually excited to get back to school and gt back to soccer!  But still, I am anxious for summer to be here!! I had slacked quite a bit in the last few weeks on my meal plans, but we are back on the healthy eating wagon, so I am back to[Read more]

Hello Cherry Blossom Festival! We have had the most glorious spring weather the last few days.  We were able to get out on Saturday and visit the Cherry Blossom Festival (though it was a[Read more]

Hi Friends!  I hope you had a nice weekend!  We have a busy week coming up (what’s new) so let’s take a look at what we’re going to be eating this week! Crock Pot Lentil Soup We were supposed to eat this last week, but on Thursday night, I was NOT feeling cooking at all.  I picked up a couple of pizzas for Scott and the kids, and I got a pulled pork burrito bowl for dinner (YUM), and decided[Read more]

Chick-o-Stick Smoothie

I love smoothies.  Typically, I use fruit, maybe a handful of spinach, but the fruit is usually the highlight of the smoothie itself.  But as I was perusing Pinterest the other day, I cane across a creamy peanut butter smoothie, which I though sounded so good at the time!  I didn’t have exactly what the recipe called for, so I improvised a bit, and the smoothie that was produced was SO DELICIOUS!  It was made with four basic ingredients (that[Read more]
