This past weekend one of my baking buddies (and overall good friend) got married to his best friend, Levi. They’re the type of people who are honestly friends with everyone, so the wedding was a huge assortment of friends and family from all over the country. It was casual, yet so personal, and Christian was sweet enough to ask me to bake their rehearsal dinner cake.
Nothing says the Fourth of July like a hot day in the sun with a big ‘ole slice of watermelon. It’s one of those fruits that single people don’t really buy unnecessarily because it’s an awful lot of fruit to eat alone. Thus, it has gone in to my unofficial list of “party foods”, or things that somehow seem too outlandish and decadent to buy without an event in mind. Prosciutto, more than one block of cheese, smoked salmon, and any of the flowers that don’t come in the $4 bucket… But don’t you worry, the Fourth of July is here and it’s time to buy all of the things.

I never think to make a margarita except for in the heat of the Summer, and then the craving is REAL. I want it sweet, salty, spicy, and cold. Continue reading “Pineapple Jalapeno Margaritas”
A berry and citrus combination is the unofficial flavor of Summer in my book. No matter how many times I pair lemons with blueberries, limes with raspberries, and grapefruit with blackberries, the flavors always taste fresh and exciting. There’s just something about the sweet and sour combination that you can’t get enough of!
Happy dreary Monday to you all! We’ve had a crazy rainstorm happening all day in Houston, getting me pumped to watch the Bachelorette with my girlfriends tonight and do a bit of absolutely nothing. Rainy couch days are best paired with easy and absolutely delicious desserts. I have a great one for you today. Continue reading “Easy Peanut Butter Cup Rice Crispy Treats”
Tacos are just the best. You don’t need any utensils to eat them, the ingredients are cheap, and the flavors are just darn good. I’ve made many an overnight taco recipe, as well as the quick ground beef stove top kind, but I had never actually tried my hand at a quick chicken taco recipe that I really loved, until this one.
