Pina Coladas are my favorite boozy poolside drink. Can't wait to try this healthier version from +Kristen Chidsey  for my non-vacation days. #SundaySupper  
 
No plane ticket to escape to the tropics? No problem. Escape there with my Pina Colada Smoothie.
Celebrate #NationalPinaColadaDay  with all my #SundaySupper  family!

This Southwest Quinoa Salad is a house favorite of ours. It's light but bursts with fresh summer flavors. I'm whipping up a huge batch this weekend so that we can enjoy it all week.

I've spent the past couple of weeks trying to get used to being back at work full-time. It's been an adjustment all around. How do I manage to balance work with not just home life - cooking, cleaning, being a wife - but also being a mom? It has been a challenge for sure, but my husband ...

For the past couple of years, every July, I share some of my favorite frozen treats that have caught my eye. I have tried very few of the recipes, if any, but the innovative recipe and/or drool-worthy photo had me saving the recipes at a pace there was no way I could keep up with. To kick ...

Classic vanilla ice cream. What better way to start your summer?
#summer   #icecream   #recipeoftheday   #vanilla   #kidfriendly  
When the weather finally turned into sunshine and spring a month or so ago, I jumped at the chance to make homemade ice cream. I love the rich vanilla flavor and super smooth texture of homemade ice cream. This is my hubby's favorite vanilla recipe - Philadelphia-style, made with milk and ...

I love the creamy texture coconut milk lends to homemade popsicles. Cookies and Coconut Cream popsicles are a particular favorite for my family. 3 ingredients and only minutes to make. #SundaySupper

I'm doing spring cleaning a little late around here. I've been digging through my freezer, getting ready to restock it, and came across the extra bag of cranberries I stashed in my freezer. It's not seasonal, but I enjoyed this #fall  dessert. If you don't hoard cranberries like I do, then be sure to pin this recipe for later.

Every month I think things are going to settle down, and every month seems to get busier and more chaotic than the last. I can't tell you how many times I earmarked a day on the calendar to make bars for this month's What's Baking? theme, how many times I pulled butter out of the ...
