One of the things I miss most about living in Louisiana was the plethora of Mediterranean restaurants available to us. Every time we go back to visit, you better believe that I make sure to hit up our favorite spots. The last time that we were in town, my hubby and I got all of our favorite dishes and ended up ordering Lebanese tea that was so refreshing and delicious I couldn't believe how much I loved the combo of flavors. (How did I not know about this delicious drink before now?) I knew I had to make sure you knew about it too, so I created my own version at home! Lemon Rose Iced Tea (Lebanese Tea) is going to be your new favorite summer beverage on the hottest of days!

Who says you have to leave your house to have a little fun in the sun? One of my favorite things to do is hang out with my guys right in our own backyard! A little fun in the sun with all of the comforts of home? Sign me up! I love creating a fun atmosphere with good food, fun games, and family time! Luckily for me, Kroger Marketplace was the perfect one stop shop to create the best backyard BBQ right at home!
Y'all...I don't know how it is possible, but next week is July 4th and suddenly I feel like this year is passing by at an alarmingly fast speed! But regardless how I feel about that, the fourth is coming, ready or not, and that means it's time to get out your grills! I love switching up my normal burger routine in the summertime and incorporating some of my favorite seasonal ingredients to make an extra special burger! My sweet and spicy bourbon peach chutney pork burgers are so full of flavor and are the perfect recipe to make for all of your summertime grilling festivities!
My hubby is addicted it açaí bowls. Every Friday he takes our son to a local cafe and they share one together! Although I have been putting açaí packets in my smoothies for a while now, until we went to Hawaii I had never actually had an açaí bowl! (I loved it obviously!) They were so fresh and delicious, the perfect way to start our day! I knew I wanted to start making them at home because they are much more cost effective this way, and now we can have them whenever we want! I created a recipe for easy loaded açaí bowls that anyone can do right in their own kitchen!
It has been raining since Sunday and the sun finallllyyyyyy came out yesterday evening for the first day of summer! Summertime means it's officially ice cream season, even though I kind of feel like ice cream should be enjoyed all year long! Who's with me? Speaking of ice cream, when we were in Hawaii we ate at an amazing gelato spot (two nights in a row) and had a seriously delicious toasted coconut flavor that I haven't been able to get out of my head since we returned! Naturally, I had to recreate this flavor at home and the result was amazing! My chocolate coated toasted coconut ice cream might have just earned a spot as my most favorite ice cream I've ever made!
If I've said it once, I've said it 100 times, weeknight meals have to be quick and easy at my house! No one has time for a dinner that takes more than thirty minutes on any given weeknight with everything else going on throughout the day! I love a meal that even when I am exhausted doesn't take too much effort and tastes delicious too! Fried rice has always been one of my favorite meals to whip up on a busy day, and until now I have never really been a fan of cauliflower rice! BUT my Easy Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice changed my mind and I have a feeling if you have been hesitant to get on the cauliflower bandwagon, it will change your mind too!
