Baby, it’s hot outside! It’s that time of year where not even the pool water is refreshing anymore. I wanted a cool and refreshing treat, granita is the perfect way to cool off. I wanted to make this version more on the adult side and so I added vodka to this recipe. You can always omit the vodka and follow the recipe and it will still be perfect and kid-friendly. I think adding mint or basil to this would add a whole other layer of flavor. This is a very quick and easy way to beat this summer heat!
- 4 cups Watermelon juice
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Ah, biscuits! Growing up every Saturday morning I was awaken by the smell of biscuits in the oven. Both my mom and grandmother have a natural talent for making amazing biscuits. You know, that talent where no measuring cups or scales are used. Unfortunately, I did not inherit this trait from either of them. I have never really been a great biscuit maker. Sure, I have tried tons of recipes but they have never been as great as the biscuits I grew up eating. I finally stumbled upon this recipe which is pretty darn close to perfect. I have made these biscuits many times now and I know this is the recipe I will always use.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
Summer is in full swing and our family is busier than ever. Which has caused my menu planning to well at this point what menu planning. I haven’t planned our menu for over a month. It’s time to get my butt in gear and to do that I actually sat down and took some time this week to get myself organized. As I was going through my list of recipes to try I came across this delicious and easy recipe. I already had everything I need in my pantry so it was definitely going on my menu this week. This recipe was just what I needed to get myself back in the kitchen. Summer is almost halfway over and there is no sign rest and relaxation in the near future, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I love a good brownie. I have to admit when I make brownies I usually go for the box mix. I have tried a few homemade versions in the past but none of them really turned out as good as the boxed mixes. One day I was having a huge brownie craving so I decided to try the homemade version one last time. I was looking for a recipe that didn’t have a ton of eggs or butter. I was still in my jammies and really didn’t want to go to the store. Finally, I found the perfect recipe and I already had all the ingredients on hand! These brownies are amazing and I will make them whenever I have another craving, which is often:)
