My hope is to inspire you to get in the kitchen and have an adventure. Make something you have never tried before.  Push yourself to make something you have always been intimidated to make but most importantly to have fun and make memories!


Boozy Watermelon Granita

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!

Buttermilk Biscuits

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.

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!

 

My Favorite Brownies

IMG_5138

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:)
