Apple Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream - easy and healthy 4 ingredient homemade dog treat! A great way to keep your pup cool all summer.

It’s Clementine’s 8 year adoptiversary, you guys!

I got her literally days after we moved to Colorado when we were still living in the Army hotel on Fort Carson. We hadn’t even found a house yet but I’d found a dog. She’s been through so much with me and since I don’t know her actual birthday, we’ll just celebrate today!

(Also, I gave her an at home haircut a few weeks ago because our groomer is back by our old house and that’s 45 minutes away and I am too busy for that right now. Sorry she looks a little homeless.)

With Apple Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream!

Is everyone loving summer like I am? I’m so happy that it’s hot outside that I could cry. I’m moving somewhere that has summer weather all year round. Who’s with me?!

I’m having to drag my children home from the pool hours after dinnertime every day and it just makes me so happy that they’re so happy outside and in the water.

It’s making cooking dinner a little more difficult though, so today I’ve got a really easy 30 minute dinner idea that your kids won’t even know are good for them. My 7 year old took his first bite and shouted “THESE ARE DELICIOUS!”

Plus an easy side dish idea that also works perfectly for parties and barbecues!

I’ve never really called myself a Texan. I mean, I just moved here 4 years ago, I don’t own boots, and I’m definitely not a Cowboys fan.

But a couple weeks ago I recognized someone’s truck because of the cowboy hat on the dash.

Pretty sure that was the moment I became a Texan.

And one thing I’ve learned over the last 4 years is that Texans love beef.

Hi guys, how was your weekend?

We went to the lake, of course, and now I am quite sunburnt but it was worth it. And then I made ribs! And that’s always exciting. 

I’ve realized just how much I love ribs recently. I never loved ribs covered in thick globs of barbecue sauce and now that I’m making my own and saucing them how I want, I’m really loving them. The taste of fresh pork alone is so delicious – it doesn’t always need all that gloopy barbecue sauce. 

Okay, yeah, I know, I called these Hawaiian BBQ Ribs but it’s not your typical barbecue sauce! The pork is still the star here.

Melon Ball Sangria - the perfect summer cocktail! Watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe balls with fresh mint, white wine, vodka, and ginger ale. So refreshing, so simple, and great for a party!

Hi guys, I haven’t shared a cocktail in forever! (Seriously, it’s been over a year! Who am I?!)

I bought these melon balls months ago with the intention of making this sangria with them and then almost immediately lost them in my freezer. But my children have eaten through our stash of Hot Pockets and the melon balls have been found! 

I just love sangria, especially if I’m making drinks for more than a couple people. It’s a great way to stretch a bottle of wine and also not be making drinks one at a time all night long. 

This Melon Ball Sangria is one of my favorites for summer. You have to try it!
