Honey Lime Margaritas

Nothing says weekend to me more than a delicious cocktail. Hello, Friday… Is it happy hour yet? Being it’s going to be a marvelous 3 day weekend, I plan on starting the weekend-ing a bit early with these awesome honey lime margaritas. This tart and […]

Strawberry Basil Mojito

Strawberry Basil Mojito

It’s FRIDAY and I’m feeling great!  My kids were in vacation bible school every morning this week which meant I actually had some bona-fide alone time to get things done.  I checked off item after item on my summer to-do list and am finally caught […]

Pina Colada Peach Smoothie

Pina Colada Peach Smoothie

Every year for the past ten years, we’ve held a garage sale at our house over mother’s day weekend.  It was tradition in the neighborhood we had lived in. Last year was the last garage sale as we’ve moved to an acreage and it’s gotten […]

Coconut Eggnog

Coconut Eggnog

It’s gloomy and threatening to rain.  I guess that could be a metaphor for what I’ve felt like the past few days too.  This past weekend, I unfortunately discovered I still can’t really tolerate having milk without suffering afterwards for multiple days.  I tempted fate by […]

Moving to our acreage earlier this spring has been nothing but a blessing.  Last month, we were blessed with beautiful big plump concord grapes compliments of the three vines out back.  So, when life gives you grapes, and I mean 6 total buckets of them, you get […]

Summer Mules

Summer Mules

Adventures in landscaping part 1: discover that the former owners used a tarp-like building wrap under the mulch instead of proper landscape fabric.  You know, this may seem like a resourceful, brilliant idea but I assure you, it is not.  Building wrap (Tyvek style) is […]

Cardamom Coffee

Cardamom Coffee

My next door neighbor makes the most delicious sweetened orange pekoe tea brewed with cardamom pods.  After my excitement over this warm beverage and knowing how much of a crazed coffee fan I am, she texted me a few days later saying I needed to […]

Berries and Cream Smoothie

Berries and Cream Smoothie

Hey hey!!  How about a quick Saturday afternoon post with an equally quick breakfast berries and cream smoothie?   I mix up a smoothie nearly every morning as I’ve found that it’s a great way to get a lot of healthy nutrients to start the day.  […]

Coconut Milk Kefir

Coconut Milk Kefir

Yiy, what a week. I’m certainly glad last week has passed and we’re on to greener pastures. Halloween was fun though.  We took the kids to my mom and dad in-law’s neighborhood to do some hardcore trick-or-treating.  The kids filled their buckets to overwhelmingly full […]
