July Fourth

  So Zach made this incredible habanero, honey and orange sauce while I was away in May; not that I would know that it was incredible since I didn’t get to try it, but I obviously took his word for it. We decided to have another go at it (mostly because I wanted to try …

  Come on, you know everything tastes better when it’s cooked on a stick: chicken, hot dogs, marshmallows…you get the picture. Also, you know everything tastes better when it’s cooked over an open fire, or in this case on a grill over an open fire. This chicken kabob recipe can only be described in one …

  Ok so maybe it’s not 100% the healthiest version of buffalo chicken wings, but the attempt was totally there. It’s actually kind of difficult to get a “healthy” buffalo sauce, especially when there is a stick of butter involved. At least this is a SOMEWHAT healthier version of a fan favorite. I love using …

  Yup, blackberry lemonade…just because. Zach and I are obsessed with lemonades and juices. We stock up when they go on sale, and even then, they are gone within just a couple of days. I truly think the Simply Lemonades are some of the best on the planet. Because they are so fresh, they have …

  I love the flavors of summer and this salsa totally embodies the flavors of summer. I seriously wish that some of these tropical fruits were hardy enough to grow in our “rough” climate because I would certainly have some kind of tropical fruit orchard growing right now. Oh well, you can’t have everything. This …

  Well the 4th of July is right around the corner. If you haven’t had your picnics yet, I’m sure they are soon. In order to please Zach (I feel like I’m always pleasing Zach in the form of sweet treats (=), I decided to make him a peppermint cookie. Now I normally would not …

  Ever since our recent road trip to the Grand Canyon, I have been craving sopaipillas. Of course, I’m sure most of us have had a sopaipilla at some point in our lives. It’s really just a Southwestern/Mexican/Texan/Latin American/South American/Central American (yeah they serve them just about everywhere!) version of a donut. I forgot about …
