Breakfast has to be my favorite meal of the day. (Brunch included). I always loved when my mom would make it for dinner when I was growing up and I still make breakfast for dinner even now. (Because, let’s be honest, breakfast for dinner is ahhhh-mazing). I plan my vacations around which breakfast spots I want to try, and I’m the first to suggest a brunch get together with friends. To say my life revolves around breakfast is a bit of a stretch, but not too far off. If there’s a griddle involved, I’m there. And these blueberry waffles with lemon curd are no exception. Fresh blueberries take this homemade waffle batter to another level and the lemon curd….sooooooo good. They are the perfect meal to make for breakfast or brunch this weekend (or dinner, if you’re feeling crazy 😉 )
We’re heading into the last long weekend of Summer, and as much as I love Halloween and colder days, I’m still hanging onto as much Summer goodness as I can. 100 degree temps can get old after awhile, but they are a whole lot easier to bear with one of these Arnold Palmer popsicles in hand! These boozy adult popsicles are the perfect treat for this Labor day weekend (or, let’s be honest…any day that ends in “Y”).
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!
One of my VERY favorite movie series of all time, hands down, has to be James Bond. I don’t even think I can narrow it down to a specific favorite movie in the series. I like them all. Although, I did start out as a Pierce Brosnan fan, once Daniel Craig took over, was there really any going back? (Let’s be serious). There’s just something about a handsome guy in a suit, driving a gorgeous sports car, wielding a gun, and kicking some serious ass. Maybe I have a thing for British spies…? Who knows. But, on National Martini Day, it only seems right to highlight and celebrate one of the most famous martinis of all time. The James Bond martini recipe. If Mr. Bond approves of this classy cocktail, I do too.
It’s crazy to think that holiday season is right around the corner. I still can’t even accept the fact that Summer passed in the blink of an eye. (It must be a tell-tale sign of getting old). As October hits and our schedules start getting busier and busier, we have less time to think about gift ideas. With endless events, parties, birthdays, and holidays, they can sneak up on us and leave us scrambling. But, with a little prep work, or a saved pin on your pinterest board for later, you can store ideas away and be prepared well in advance this year! Today’s recipe works for just about any gift idea, and honestly, you can just keep it on hand at home, ready to pour when you have house guests stop by. This limoncello recipe is easier than pie, but it does take some patience and a little bit of time before it’s ready to sip.
Weird that I’m posting about lemon ice cream and I don’t even like the flavor of lemon that much…? Yep, totally, but there’s one thing that completely sold me on lemon flavor.
LEMON OREOS. (Insert wide-eyed and shocked emoji face here).
