Happy Friday Eve! If you're looking to spice up your menu this weekend, I've got a delicious recipe for you up on the blog today!

We're big fans of bringing the heat in our dishes. Sriracha is definitely a favorite way to spice things up! So I was really excited when Cole & Mason UK sent me their Sriracha Spice to use in a recipe!

This flatbread is definitely inspired by summer! It's got a little kick of heat, a ton of summer garden veggies, and succulent shrimp. It's a delicious lunch or great dinner that's easy to make and full of bold flavor!

Head to the blog for the recipe and see how you can win Cole & Mason spices of your own, housewares, or a grand prize worth $1000! #sweepstakes #cmspice

I don't know what happened to me, guys. I started the summer off with such good eating habits. I felt real good about myself, too! Then, I met two guys who swayed me to the dark - but delicious - side. Their names? Ben and Jerry.

So I decided to break up with them recently and try to get myself back into those better eating habits. How does ice cream fit into today's zucchini fries recipe? Well, it really doesn't, but there's a story tied in there somewhere! I promise!

Head to the blog today for this healthier alternative to french fries (another foodie weakness of mine). If you have an abundance of zucchini from the farmer's market or your garden, this is a great way to use it up!

Happy August, everyone! Believe it or not, summer is officially halfway over! I'll admit that I'm completely sad about that. I love the Fall! But that doesn't mean you need to put away your favorite pineapple trends from the summer!

Today on the blog, I'm sharing a bunch of great items to help you keep the pineapple trend going way after summer! Head over to the blog and let me know which one is your favorite! 🍍

It's been a busy summer of home updates! We wrapped up our kitchen makeover last month and just updated our bedroom a couple weeks ago. It looks fabulous!

We painted the walls with a gorgeous sage BehrPaint color and got new furniture from Raymour & Flanigan. Head to the blog today to see how it all came together!

My birthday is this weekend and it's a tradition in our house that the birthday babe gets whatever he or she wants to eat for dinner that night. It could be anything from something simple to something completely decadent.

This year, I'm craving a little surf and turf. I think I might pick up a couple of steaks and some scallops for us. I like my scallops pan seared with butter and lemon. Simple and delicious! But some of these scallop recipes sound so good that I might have to try something different!

If you're a fan of scallops, head to the blog today for 25 Buttery Delicious Scallop Recipe and treat yourself to some of these sweet, little seafood delights!

If summer had a flavor, I would say it's a lobster roll from down the shore. There's really nothing better than hanging out, watching the boats sail by, and chowing down on a fresh lobster roll!

But if you can't make it down to the Jersey Shore, I've got the next best thing for you! Make a Classic Jersey Shore Lobster Roll right from the comfort of your own home!

Head to +SoFabFood's website today to see how easy it is to whip up a couple of delicious lobster rolls! Serve them with a side of fries and coleslaw for the ultimate summertime treat! #SoFabFood

Happy Monday! My husband was off for the past 10 days and while I miss him already today, I'm happy to get back into my normal routine.

We ended the weekend watching some +Discovery Channel #SharkWeek shows. Knowing that one of America's favorite weeks of TV was coming up, I put together a Shark Week Cheese Board. It's made with a variety of cheeses, nuts, crackers, and other tasty bites. Just watch your fingers! 😉

Head to the blog today to see how you can put your own Shark Week Cheese Board together to snack on while you binge watch Shark Week shows! 🦈
