Goodbye JUNE and hello JULY! One of my favorite months of the year. Lots of barbecues, travel, festivals, and food recipes that make you love everything about summer. Here’s what you need to do, see, and talk about this month.
Summer has officially started, and while I’ve been a busy bee working on projects and trying new recipes. I had to take the time to recap on things I’ve done this summer thus far. From indulging in a huge strawberry shortcake waffle bowl from Cold Stone Creamery to attending J.Lo’s private sip and stream listening party get the treats inside.
Fourth of July is just a week away. Spice up things with a new Korean BBQ sauce that will give your guests an option outside of the traditional BBQ sauce. Whether you’re grilling chicken, salmon or delicious burgers, this sauce will a sweet and tangy twist to your barbecue. Get the recipe inside.
The first day of summer is officially this weekend, and there’s nothing like entertaining your friends with refreshing cocktails. Kick off your summer celebrating World Gin Day with a few refreshing summer cocktails. Get the recipes after the jump!
Last month, I had the opportunity to take a quick escape out of the city to the beautiful city of Cape May, New Jersey. It was a home away from home I must admit. From their well known architecture of Victorian homes to dining at restaurants with fresh and delicious cuisine. Get the list inside!
June 6th is National Doughnut Day, and just in case you’re hosting friends over for a drunkin doughnut happy hour, here’s a recipe that is sure to fit the bill. Recipe after the jump.
My early days growing up in Texas (it gets warm in March), Memorial Day was our official mark of summer. There’s no better way to kick off summer than with delicious barbecue and light cocktails. Whether you’re making cocktails for a crowd or just you and a friend, here are a few of my favorite summer recipes!
Stayed at the newly renovated and kid friendly beach resort Montreal Beach Resort.
Ate lots of bacon wrapped scallops.. YUM!
Didn’t get to enjoy the beach, it was pretty chilly. (Excuse to revisit this summer!)
Shopped at their local market ACME (love the name).
Wait there’s more… after the jump!
Ran my first mile of spring in 7 minutes and 13 seconds.
Nearly drowned hailing a cab in the horrible rain storm on Wednesday. (No worries, I can swim. lol)
Road the Amtrak for the first time. (First time for everything right?)
Ate at PYT my favorite burger joint in Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philly. (It’s a must every time I visit)
Tried stuffed Lobster & Shrimp Mac & Cheese at Relish.
Spring is literally just two days away. That’s means lighter bites and fresher salads are in full swing. I love anything that’s extremely savoring, so why sacrifice when it comes to my salad? For Tasty Tuesday, I’m sharing one of my favorite salads which can add a little spice to your life. See recipe inside!
