Skinny Tequila Sunrise Margaritas – a low calorie margarita recipe that’s perfect for summer!

Hey guys, happy Friday!

I made us margaritas because I am so done with winter and can’t even believe it’s still 30-something degrees in the mornings.

And is there anything that makes you feel more summery than a gorgeous margarita?

I mean, maybe it not being 30 degrees so you can wear your cute summer clothes would make you feel more summery. But these Skinny Tequila Sunrise Margaritas will have to work for now.

Also, my kids have been on spring break all week and if I hear the backdoor open and shut more time I may actually lose my mind.

Just go outside and stay outside. Or stay inside. I really don’t care. But for the love of everything, just pick one and stay there.

Corned Beef Pizza Rolls - corned beef, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing rolled up in pizza dough and baked until golden and delicious! Only 4 ingredients and totally addictive!

Hi guys, this is late. Super late. I had a weird week.

I actually made a pizza for this post. Like, a real corned beef pizza with homemade slow cooked corned beef turned into a hash and put on pizza crust with lots of cheddar cheese. And then I cracked 3 eggs on top and was sure it was going to be the most delicious corned beef hash breakfast pizza ever created.

But I forgot about it and by the time I remembered, the hash was black and the egg yolks were definitely not runny.

Oh well.

My kids enjoyed these Corned Beef Pizza Rolls so much more anyway.

Pasta with Broccoli Walnut Pesto – delicious meatless dinner recipe. Homemade broccoli pesto is ready in minutes! The broccoli lover in your life is going to love this one!

My kids are obsessed with broccoli.

Have we talked about that?

All 3 of them would happily eat an entire pan of roasted broccoli for dinner every night if I let them.

I literally can’t keep broccoli in the house. I buy bags and bags of the pre-cut kind and it seems to just disappear.

There’s absolutely nothing about broccoli that appeals to me unless it’s covered with mayo and tossed with dried cranberries so I don’t get it.

Roasted Garlic and Cauliflower Pizza – pizza with a roasted garlic ricotta sauce and topped with cauliflower, tomatoes, and fresh basil! Perfect meatless option for pizza night!

Hi guys, I’m obsessed with cauliflower and I’ll talk about it more in an upcoming post because it’s, like, a thing in my life right now.

A real thing.

Like, we ordered fried cauliflower at Megg’s the other day because I couldn’t resist.

So naturally I had to put it on pizza.

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!

This blog post originally published on March 10, 2014. Updated on March 2, 2018. 

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.
