You know those cheesy scenes in old movies where someone is walking through the sweltering desert and they're so thirsty that they hallucinate about an oasis? That's sort of how this recipe came to be. Except, replace burning hot desert sands with 98% humidity, and you have my reality every day ...

Piña Colada Popsicles and cool summer style are over on the blog today! +prAna +Stonyfield  #giveaway   #stonyfieldblogger  
What are you craving this summer? Me? I'm thinking a lengthy vacation and an ice cold umbrella drink by the pool would be nice. Hey, a girl can dream. Luckily, some cravings aren't hard to satisfy, like breezy summer dresses that go from day to night and creamy, frozen treats that you can make ...

Salad dressing is one of those things that people tend to have strong preferences about. On the side. Tossed with lettuce. Rich and creamy. Light vinaigrette. Just a drizzle. Glopped on. And don't even get me started on you die-hard "Ranch on everything" people!

My #FWCon  recap, and my very first "recipe" video! :)
Hi there! I'm finally fully recovered from attending the Food Wine Conference I mentioned a few weeks ago, and that means that 1. My head is swimming, and 2. I have so much to do. Nothing new there. It was a great weekend, although the conditions going into it were definitely NOT ideal.

Get your tortilla chips AND your veggies this Cinco de Mayo! #EverydayFiesta
I've got no time for chit-chat today {unless you're gonna tell me you just made me a fresh margarita, then we can talk}, but I wanted to make sure to squeeze in some festive "Cinco" action for you. So let's get right to it: On days like today your mind might say,"Vegetables.

Getting super excited about Food Wine Conference... and this Blueberry & Brie Salad with PUFF PASTRY CROUTONS -- my entry for the +Wish Farms  #BlueberryToss  contest! 
If you've seen the last few posts I've published, you might be wondering why the heck I'm so excited about attending the Food Wine Conference next month in Orlando. {You might also be wondering if I ever eat anything other than cheese, bacon and dessert. I do, I promise.} ...

Moms in bikinis. Discuss. I've never given much thought to what moms wear to the pool during summertime until I became a mom myself. This is because 1. I generally do not have an opinion about what others choose to wear. {Or not wear. I'm talking to you, Speedo-clad 70-year-old on the beach.

Inspired from a recent dining experience, these savory Pepper Jack Madeleines are a heavenly treat!
Yesterday I went out to run a quick errand and, I kid you not, my eyelids were sweating. It already feels like it's a billion degrees out, and yet, I still can't stop myself from turning on the oven and baking from time to time. {That's why God created air conditioning.} ...

The longer I blog, the more crazy tales I have of things that are mailed to me. The delivery truck drivers who are assigned to my house probably either think I'm crazy or that the person who lives at my address looks like Jabba the Hutt. Depending on the day, they're probably half right.

Let's lift a glass {of Lipton Iced Tea!} to girl time and crafternoons! Check out my tips on how to host your own "crafTEA" party in today's post. #LiptonTeaTime   #sponsored  
The idea of women gathering for tea and fellowship is nothing new; ladies have been enjoying each other's company over tea since the days of iron kettles and quilting bees! In today's modern world, "tea time" doesn't have to mean porcelain teacups and pinkies up, just like crafting goes far ...

I am constantly juggling the daily tasks of growing a business and staying home with my growing boy. I love both, but it takes a lot of time, energy and patience to dedicate time to each every single day. I spend Cole's nap times working and his awake times playing, and I'm always looking for ...

Pimento Cheese Stuffed Cornbread! #MakeItWithMilk  
That whole "twist on a Southern classic" thing I mentioned last week got my wheels turning, and all I've been able to think about are amped up Southern recipes. Plus, my husband and I are planning an anniversary trip to Charleston in June and I've been falling asleep with visions of shrimp ...
