This McDonald’s copycat recipe for the Shamrock Shake is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or any day you need a sweet, minty treat!

Hi guys, happy last day of the week!

I’m updating this post for the 3rd time because I hated the pictures. I always say drinks are my favorite to photograph (I mean, look at these gorgeous margaritas) but shakes are a different story. The whipped cream sinks or everything starts melting together so you scrape off the first whipped cream and do another swirl. And repeat 57 times.

But I love these shakes and I want everyone to make them because they are amazing. Plus I read that McDonald’s is only releasing them to select restaurants this year and that’s just wrong.

I had my first Shamrock Shake 2 years ago, I think. Crazy, right? This recipe had been on my site for several years at that point.

Anyway, I like to claim that I don’t like mint flavored things so I never really understood the fuss over them but, you guys, I got it after that first one. It’s sweet and the right kind of minty and just the most perfect milkshake you can imagine.

My kid looked at me yesterday morning and said, “Only 6 days of school left before Thanksgiving break!”

Wait, what?

I know we all say this every year but, seriously, how are we less than 2 weeks from Thanksgiving?! I swear it was just July.

Mummy Oreo Truffles - use Pumpkin Spice Oreos to make the cutest Halloween treat!

Heeeeey guys! Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe how close we are to Halloween? I haven’t even put out decorations.

Well.

I got them out. And put them all on a table in my living room. Weeks ago.

And they are still on that table.

I haven’t even switched my Pyrex wall to fall colors and you know that is the highlight of every season for me!

Life has just been so crazy lately! Maybe I’ll have sometime this weekend to get it sorted out. Or maybe I should just decorate for Christmas because who know when I’ll have time for that!

Happy Monday, y’all!

Can you believe next week is the 4th of July?

I can’t believe we’re already a week into summer and I haven’t been to the beach once! Don’t worry, taking care of that problem next week. Stupid excited. Bought a doughnut float. And a new bikini. Maybe more than 1 new bikini.

I love summer.

Anyway, if you’re planning on throwing a 4th of July party or attending one, I’ve got a list that will make your life so much easier. Red, white, and blue everything! We’ve got desserts, snacks, drinks, and even some great grilling recipes. Those aren’t red, white, and blue. Don’t recommend eating anything blue that comes off the grill.
