When I was a kid, I was a pretty big fan of vegetables.

I didn’t like some (and still don’t, for that matter), but I mostly ate them without fuss. I think.

We were broccoli and cauliflower lovers… and I especially loved when my mom would sprinkle them with cheddar cheese, bake them for a few so the cheese got melty and delicious, and then serve them up hot as a side dish.

This recipe is a throwback to my childhood and those cheesy veggies… except I’ve elevated it a little bit. While it takes a bit longer than simply sprinkling cheese on top of a roasting veggie, I promise it’s worth the extra effort.

I loved my Blackberry Mint Spritzer that I had to make another drink with blackberries before the summer was over. (Don’t look at me like I’ve lost my mind. I haven’t — it’s still summertime here.)

This time, thought?

We’re makin’ it with alcohol.

Specifically, wine.

Because why not? [Read more…]

I don’t know what the weather’s like where y’all live, but the summer is still going strong in Texas. Which is why I’m steadfastly refusing anything/everything involving pumpkin and the fall since we’ve got at least another month of summertime. [Read more…]

Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Cool down this August with slightly sweet and dreamy Peaches and Cream Popsicles! Sprinkle sliced peaches with sugar, letting them steep in the beautiful liquid. Strain the peaches and save the juices… then combine the juice with Greek yogurt and a few peaches to create these decadent popsicles!

Peach season is about to come to an end, and this makes me incredibly sad because peaches might be my all-time favorite fruit.

When I was a kid, I have distinct memories of slicing up peaches to put atop my cereal in the mornings. If you haven’t tried this, I totally recommend it! I also have memories of peach cobblers and crumbles and pies and all kinds of desserts.

Ever since I found peaches at my grocery this summer, I’ve been enjoying them by the dozen. Which has actually become kind of ridiculous because, well, no normal person should go through several pounds of peaches in a month. Right?

Whatever the case, I had a few peaches left in my last batch and decided to make popsicles using them. [Read more…]
