Gluten-Free Caramel Brownie Sundae - delicious homemade gluten-free brownies recipe with salted caramel ice cream and homemade dairy-free caramel sauce!

Sad news, guys.

I put the top on my Jeep the other day.

It’s been off since sometime in early July and I’ve finally given into the fact that it’s very hot outside.

It’s been so hot that my phone was overheating on a 5 minute drive to the grocery store.

So yeah, the top is on and I am very much anticipating some sort of cooler weather next month.

Until then, I will just have to indulge in my favorite frozen treats to make up for it.

Maple Bacon Rice Krispies Treats - the classic Rice Krispies Treats with a sweet and salty twist! These are so yummy!

Heeeeey guys! I can’t believe it’s Monday again. Why does this keep happening?!

Let’s go back to Friday, mmkay?

So how was the weekend?

I did that thing where I swore I was going to stay home all weekend and clean my house and then ended up doing the exact opposite.

The monthly food truck festival over in Temple snuck up on me this month and you know I can’t miss that! So the kids and I headed over there Saturday. My favorite truck wasn’t there this month but I did have a delicious plate of Hawaiian Pulled Pork Fries and something called a Redneck Taco.

The redneck taco? Honestly, I ordered it just for the name and now I can’t stop thinking about it.

It was cornbread with rice, brisket, sausage, beans, and nacho cheese on top.

It was ridiculous and amazing and I’ll be looking for that truck next month.

DIY Tennis Ball Dog Toy - keep your dog from destroying all her tennis balls with this easy DIY toy tutorial!

Hi, my name is Amanda and I’m the kind of person that stays home on a Friday night and makes DIY dog toys.

You’re okay with that, right?

I’m also already contemplating Halloween costumes for all my dogs. Their Halloween picture from last year is still one of my favorites I’ve ever taken and this year’s needs to be even better. I’m thinking about a theme this year. Any ideas?
