Now that summer is here, there are herb gardens everywhere and the delicious fragrances of herbs filling the air! This year I planted a few different herbs; basil, cilantro, parsley, and rosemary, and I am always looking for creative ways to use them. I definitely think basil has been the easiest to come up with uses for, but some of the others like rosemary aren’t so easy. Therefore I decided to put together a list of more than 30 recipes that call for fresh herbs and that can be made easily with the herbs right from your garden! I just love having a garden in the backyard, and being able to pull certain things from it when I need them…it’s the best!  So here are more than 30 recipes for you to use up those herbs this summer!

Lemon Rosemary Iced Teagaritas

Lemon Rosemary Tea-GaritaSQAURE

One of the things I love about summer, is the chance to create tons of interesting cocktails. I love using fresh herbs from the garden, and lately I have been playing with a lot of infused simple syrups. Last week I shared a Basil Simple Syrup, and now in this cocktail I used a lemon rosemary simple syrup. This cocktail is actually super easy to make, because I used the new product by Jose Cuervo, Iced Teagarita!

Fun with Fruttare!


Now that summer is here, we love to spend out weekends out and about! Whether we are hanging out as a family, with friends, or just at home, there is always something fun going on! We are a very on-the-go family, and love making the most out of the time we have together. We often plan play dates for the weekends or fun adventures! My son, Austin, loves brining ‘special treats’ on these adventures, and who can blame him?! Everyone likes to have a special treat once in a while, right?  That’s why I love Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars! Bringing these when we go places is genius, because it is … ...read more

All opinions are mine alone. #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias Until I moved to the south, I don’t think I really had a genuinely delicious biscuit that made me proclaim, ‘I love biscuits!’ But after being to a couple real southern restaurants, I learned what a real biscuit was supposed to taste like…fluffy, buttery, light and airy, and most of all delicious.  I have become obsessed with fresh biscuits, and I love making them at home.  If you have made biscuits at home, you probably know there are a … ...read more

It was the first year we took him and he had a blast and really enjoyed the fireworks! I am glad we waited until this point because I know before now he would have been scared of the loud booming noise! Here are some fun pics from our Friday night festivities!     Oh, I also had some DELICIOUS food! … ...read more

How to make Basil Simple Syrup

basil simple syrup square

Basil simple syrup is one of those things that I never thought to make before. I’m not sure why, because I make plenty of basil infused cocktails and love fresh basil. I also have found myself in the grocery store buying bottles of simple syrup.  Simple syrup happens to be the easiest thing to make, and I bet you didn’t know that. Once you make it yourself, there is no turning back. Since last weekend when I made this, I have already made 2 more types; Blueberry Basil Simple Syrup and Rosemary Simple Syrup.  Pretty much any fruit or herb can be turned into an infused simple syrup. … ...read more

Whipped Basil Feta Dip


Since starting my garden a few months ago, I’ve had several things growing; tomatoes, zucchinis, bell peppers, sweet peppers, and various herbs including basil.  For some reason unknown to me, whenever I have grown basil in the past, it has always died. I blame it on the heat down here in Georgia, but I really don’t know if that is the case because I see other people’s plants doing extremely well.  So this year I tried to plant it more out of the sun, so it wouldn't be exposed to the sun all day long, which I thought was maybe too long. I think I was right because this year, my basil … ...read more

I have been spending most mornings with the kids at the pool, because there just isn’t another option if you want to be outside. When it’s in the mid to high 90’s it’s just too hot to go to the play ground or be outside without being able to cool off!  It’s especially hot for me, considering I am a … ...read more
