Chocolate rosé watermelon pops. Yes, you read that right. Today’s recipe is easy to make, delicious, and will make you the star of your neighborhood BBQ when you show up with these bad boys in hand. They’re a “healthy” alternative to traditional summer ice cream, with an adults only twist.
I’m not ready to come to terms with tomorrow being August. I don’t know where the Summer went this year, but I’m choosing to hold onto it for as long as possible. Sure, all the stores are prepping for back to school and even Halloween already, but I’m choosing to cherish these warm summer nights, and I plan to do it on my deck with a glass of this in my hands! This lavender lemonade recipe is the perfect way to enjoy the last month of Summer, before welcoming in the chill of fall and all things pumpkin! The recipe is simple to make and I love the subtle touch of lavender that lingers too! Cheers to homemade lemonade!
I am the QUEEN of procrastination. You’d think by now, I would have learned that this is not the way to live life, but, alas, I still seem to find excuses to wait until the very last minute to do things. Work, deadlines, projects, appointments…you name it. I procrastinate it. Breakfast? Ha. Despite how much I looooove food, I also love sleep. I sleep until the very last second I can without being late to work. (Yes, I am well aware that this is a terrible idea). Because of that, breakfast is definitely almost always an after thought. But, fellow procrastinators, rejoice! There is something we can do to not only sleep as long as possible, but wake up to a delish breakfast without having to do hardly any work in advance! What is this magical breakfast I speak of…? Overnight oats! Heard of em’? If not, I’m about to blow your mind and change your morning game with today’s recipe for these berry overnight oats.
From what I’ve read around the web, I’m not the only one intimidated by the thought of making my own marshmallows. I don’t know what it is about those pillowey little clouds of sugar, but they are intimidating AF. (Don’t you guys agree?!) I’ve attempted them once before, only to throw the whole batch in the trash, but my stubbornness won out and I gave them another shot. And, boooooy, am I glad that I did! Not only are they actually really easy to make when you get the concept down, but they are sooooo much better than store bought mallows. I’m not even a marshmallow girl, but I’d definitely snack on a few of these mint chocolate marshmallows!
Looking for an easy way to garnish a cocktail or add a little more punch to some fruit? Today’s post will help you do just that! These boozy rum soaked cherries are simple to make and delicious! With only two ingredients, you’ll up your cocktail game in no time and maybe get a little buzzed while doing it! 😉
I’ve never met a Prosecco I didn’t like. I’m a bubbly girl through and through and if I can find a way to incorporate my bubbly into any other form of enjoying it, you can bet I’m going to try! And that’s exactly where today’s post comes into play. I’m sharing a recipe for pear and Prosecco popsicles that are a breeze to make, oh, so delicious, and a fun way to impress your guests for any gatherings you’ve got coming up too! Oscar party anyone?
Most of time you will find me in the kitchen, I’m baking up something delicious. Whether it’s something easy like muffins, or more complex, like this multi layer cake, I tend to gravitate towards baked goods. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook too, but I’m not a big savory person. I’m a sugar addict and baking just seems to be my happy place. (Maybe I need to make cooking more in 2018 my new year’s resolution). Either way, in today’s post I’m sharing this easy banana bread recipe that is both delicious and simple too. What’s not to love?
- 2 Cups Ripe Bananas
- 2 1/2 Cups Sugar
- 3 1/2 Cups Flour
- 4 Eggs
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- 1 Cup Buttermilk
- 7 Tsp. Baking Soda
- 1/4 Tsp. Salt
Move your baking rack to the middle of the oven and preheat it to 275 degrees.
Grease two bread pans with butter or cooking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the bananas, sugar, and baking soda. Blend at high speed, with an electric mixer, for about one minute.
Alternate adding each egg and cup of flour, until all combined.
Mix in the oil and buttermilk and beat for an additional 2 minutes or until smooth and well blended.
Pour the mixture into your two bread pans.
Bake for 2 1/2 hours.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing and cooling completely on a wire rack.
This easy banana bread recipe is also great to keep in the back of your mind during the holiday season too. These loaves make great homemade gifts for neighbors, friends, family, or to serve on Christmas morning too!

Anyone else feeling the chill of winter settling in lately? I don’t even want to leave my house when I get home from work, not to mention that it seems to get dark at 4 pm now! Either way, because of the cold, I tend to find myself looking for quick and easy meal ideas that I can snuggle up on the couch with in my pjs. (No judgement guys!) One of my fave go-to’s? Warming up with winter soup!
I’m sharing one of my favorite soups today, that is not only easy and quick to make, but also only needs ONE extra ingredient too!
