Burrata pizza-2

The summers that I remember are the ones that took place twenty plus years ago.

It was when you could hop on your bike and travel 3 to 4 miles without your parents anxiously biting away their nails to see if you were OK.  It was when you would have late night prank calls to boys or toilet papering their house.  It was having friends over to swim and coming up with synchronized swim routines so that your parents could watch all your hard work.  It was going to theme parks and wasting away your parents hard earned money so you could have the time of your life for that one day.  It was having sleepovers and putting your friends dad underwear in the freezer.  It was building a blanket fort in your house so big that it covered the entire room.

Those were the good ole’ times that I remember.  I don’t even know if kids still do these things?

Burrata pizza

Life is so serious now or maybe it always was and we just didn’t have

starburst sorbet bars

Sisters.  I have two and they are both much older than me.  You could say that I was the whoopsie of the family and my parents even admitted it a couple years ago.  Some may say that the age difference of 10 and 7 years may hinder the bonding but I totally disagree.  We...

Chipotle Pork Burger

Burgers are finally making a come back on my blog. I seriously eat or devour them all the time I just didn’t ever write down the recipe or take photos.  Anywho… it’s Friday and time to break out the burgers for this weekend.  It’s sunny here with a high of 100+ degrees, so you...

Santa Fe Four Seasons

Garden party cocktail recipe located at bottom of post! A little over a week ago Shaun and I hopped into the vehicle for a little romantic pre-anniversary trip to Sante Fe, New Mexico.  When checking out hotels in the Santa Fe area we noticed that they had a Four Seasons resort that was not...

breakfast casserole

Raise your hand if you love casseroles. Breakfast casseroles as a matter of fact. Ones that you can whip up the night before and pop them in the oven the next morning for ease. I typically like to make breakfast casseroles for the weekend. Why? I value my sleep so if I can sleep...

Indian spiced chicken meatballs

Do you view yourself as an adventurous eater or do you stick to what you know?  This is a tough question to answer because I would typically say that I will try something at least once, but when I’m cooking or baking I tend to air on the side of things I know.  There...

Cookie dough smore ice cream cake

Failed recipes?  That is the question that I receive a lot from family and friends.  I’d say 80% of the time I succeed first time on the recipe and then there are others that fail miserably.  I either try to correct those recipes or they get tossed to the side because I get frustrated...

Cheeseburger gnocchi

If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that I was vacationing in Santa Fe, NM for an EARLY anniversary trip with my hubby.  We had an amazing trip allowing us to eat, shop and site see through the gorgeous artsy town.  Typically when I get home from a trip its after...
