Mixed Berry Mojitos

This Mixed Berry Mojito is the definition of summer! Perfectly refreshing and amazingly delicious - your friends will swoon over this cocktail!

Being that it’s the summer, there is nothing like a nice refreshing cocktail while you sit back and relax. I decided to grow a mint plant in my garden this year, in hopes that it would yield lots of mint, therefore allowing me to make lots of mojitos. Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails, and I love being able to use fresh herbs while making them. I had lots of berries in the fridge over the weekend, so decided to make some easy Mixed Berry Mojitos.

This Mixed Berry Mojito is the definition of summer! Perfectly refreshing and amazingly delicious - your friends will swoon over this cocktail!

I also love making mojitos because they are super easy, and a big crowd pleaser. You can essentially use any fruits you have around, which makes flavoring them fun and creative! I am super excited about my mint plant, because this means I can have fresh mojitos all summer! If you don’t have a mint plant, I highly recommend getting one. They are really easy to maintain and are super black thumb friendly (seriously).  I actually have so much mint, I am not sure what to do with all of it – mojitos for everyone I guess!

This Mixed Berry Mojito is the definition of summer! Perfectly refreshing and amazingly delicious - your friends will swoon over this cocktail!

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

 I love this Double Chocolate Zucchini bread because it could be dessert or breakfast. It is packed with zucchini, but you would never know it while you are eating it. This is perfect for those little picky eaters who refuse to touch anything green! This bread is also pretty healthy because I used olive oil and yogurt instead of some of the more fatty ingredients. This Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread is a total win! I shared this last month over at Just Us Four, and now I am super psyched to share it with y'all!  Like I said, you can eat this delicious Double Chocolate Zucchini … ...read more

Simple Wedge Salad

Simple-Wedge-Salad-with-Homemade-Blue-Cheese_thumb.jpg

Whenever we go out for dinner, my husband and I love sharing a wedge salad. They are so simple when you think about it – a chunk of lettuce, blue cheese, tomatoes, and usually bacon. We are vegetarians though, so we always leave off the bacon. The salad is so delicious and crisp, and the blue cheese really takes it to the next level. Most places make their own chunky blue cheese, and then add more blue cheese crumbles to the top, and that is what I prefer – the more cheese, the better.  This Simple Wedge Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese is so easy to make at home, and it’s satisfying and … ...read more

No Churn Vanilla Chocolate Chip Caramel Swirl Ice Cream

No-Churn-Chocolate-Chip-Caramel-Swirl-Ice-Cream-4.jpg

Since we moved into our neighborhood, they have been building building building, trying to finish it up. They are really putting houses up in record time, along with selling them. I can’t believe how the housing market has turned around in the last few years. There is literally no home inventory in our area, and everyone is going to war for new builds and any house that goes up for sale – it’s crazy!  One of the things I love about living in a new neighborhood is that no one knows anyone, so there is a lot of opportunity to get to know all the neighbors.  I have loved bringing over … ...read more
