25+ Memorial Day Recipes! Everything you need for your Memorial Day party! Grilling recipes, pasta salads, easy desserts, and so much more!

Okay, so I know Memorial Day is still over a month away but my blogger friends and I have decided to prepare ahead of time.

Because we love grilling. And we love pasta salads. And we really, really love easy no-bake desserts. And all the other delicious recipes you’ll find in this list!

Plus, I’m really excited about Memorial Day because that means the pools on Fort Hood will FINALLY be open and you know I have been anxiously waiting this day since sometime in January. I mean, seriously, pools should open before June in Texas. It’s hot enough in March. Okay?

Plus, school will be out soon and I can roadtrip wherever I want without getting in trouble! So excited. Obsessed with this summer already. It’s going to be a good one!

Anyway, let me know what you usually serve for Memorial Day! I would love some new ideas in case I decide to get wild and have people over!

Happy Tuesday, guys!

Let’s talk about what a wimp I am.

It was 35 degrees yesterday morning when I left the house. And you would have thought I was dying by how much whining I did. I ran the heat in the house, in the car, wore my warmest jacket. It was bad.

You guys, what happened to me?! I spent the last 4 winters in Colorado, playing in the snow every time it fell, and now I can’t handle 35 degrees?

Texas has ruined me.

Technically it is Spring though which is why I am sharing the most colorful list of recipes ever! So many fruits, so many veggies! Everything from salads to doughnuts to soup! There is definitely something for everyone here.

Let me know if you have a favorite spring recipe that I need to try!

Happy Monday guys!

Today I thought we’d do something fun. I went through all my analytics from the past year to see which recipes were the most popular and these are the top 15. Normally I do a separate post of all my favorite recipes from the year as well but these are all my faves too!

I’ve made almost all of these recipes more than once and each one gets rave reviews from readers. I’ve got a cocktail, a few easy meals, some delicious appetizers, crowd-pleasing sweets, and even a couple homemade dog treats.

It turns out that you guys are also crazy dog ladies/men. I have found my people.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these recipes or if you feel another recipe should’ve been included in the list!

30+ Christmas Cookies! So many delicious Christmas cookie recipes in one place - you are sure to find something you love!

Happy Monday guys!

I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Did you do the whole Black Friday thing? I did not. I ordered a bag and some new glasses – prescription, not sun – and then I spent the rest of the day doing all the millions of dishes we somehow created on Thanksgiving.

I did go for groceries on Saturday and found $5 turkeys so you better believe we have a freezer full of turkey right now.

And then I found a cat on the top shelf in our shed yesterday, talked Fat Baby out of calling it Potato, and sent my husband 57 photos of the cat while he was at the gym.

He was all, “Did you steal somebody’s cat?”

And then, “Where did the cat get a can of cat food?”

I don’t know, found it in the pantry, did you buy cat food?

Oh! We also put our Christmas tree up! Which means it’s time for me to start planning the ridiculous list of cookies I want to make on the 24th of December! If you’re like me, this list should be a big help. So many delicious ideas – I wish I had time to make them all!

25+ Thanksgiving Recipes to get you ready for the big day! Everything from the turkey to the sides to dessert and drinks!

Happy Friiiiiday! I am celebrating the end of the week with my 3rd Target trip of the week and either 3rd or 4th cup of Autumn Squash Soup from Panera. I have lost count. I am addicted.

But good news! I have exciting stuff today!

Thanksgiving is just over a month away – isn’t that crazy? Where did October go? I cannot even believe that next weekend is Halloween! I also cannot believe that I haven’t eaten a single Almond Joy out of the Halloween candy stash.

There is still a week left though. Plenty of time to eat the entire bag.

Anyway, I’ve got several Thanksgiving recipes and ideas planned for the next month but I figured a list of delicious recipes would  be a great way to get in the Thanksgiving mood. This list has turkey, sides, desserts, even drinks! Everything you need for the perfect Thanksgiving dinner. I want to make everything on this list and I hope you do too!
