Melon and Mint Mojitos

Melon and Mint Mojitos

  Served icy cold, this refreshing mojito cocktail is perfect on a hot day! Cantaloupe, honeydew, lime and mint make this drink amazing!! Fantastic for Cinco de Mayo, too! I can hardly believe that the summer is coming to a close.  Like every summer, it has flown by in a wink.  However, its not to late to enjoy a nice, refreshing cocktail.  In fact, I love to enjoy a good cocktail any month of the year, however, a mojito seems more "summery."  To enjoy the flavors of the summer even more, I've made a fantastic Melon & Mint Mojito. Now that cantaloupes and honeydews melons are in their peak, I love picking up a couple during these hot summer days.  Not only are these sweet melons great for snacking, they're fantastic when you add them to a drink or cocktail!

Ginger Peach Iced Tea

Ginger Peach Iced Tea

A refreshing, thirst-quenching iced tea perfect for sipping on a hot summer day!  This delicious beverage has amazing peach and ginger flavor, and way better than any powdered mix! It is now July here in Northern Virginia.  That means heat, humidity, and sweating before 9am.  Don't get me wrong, I've come to really love living in the South.  In fact, one of the major advantages to being a Southerner (even if just by geography) is getting early access to some of the finest, best tasting peaches this side of the Mason-Dixon line.  With this in mind I've come up with a sure-fire way to beat the heat and humidity - this amazingly delicious and refreshing Ginger Peach Iced Tea!   Drinking iced tea is a very Southern thing, right along with BBQ and college football.  (I Continue Reading...

Iced Mocha Creames

Iced Mocha Creames

If you know me at all, you'll know that I'm a sucker for a good cup of coffee.  It's pretty much how I start every day.  If it didn't keep me awake at night, I could easily drink it all day long.  I normally take my coffee with a bit of sweetener and a splash of cream - just enough to give it a nice, creamy texture.  I liken a good cup of coffee to warm, comforting hug in a cup.  ;) There's just one small problem...when it gets hot, like it is now in Northern Virginia, a hot cup of coffee when the heat and humidity is at 80+ first thing in the morning...yeah, that hot cup of coffee isn't so desirable.  Solution: The oh so delicious Iced Mocha Cream! This is easily one of my favorite things to whip up in the blender.  Its really easy, takes just a minute or two, and just as Continue Reading...

Cherry Cheesecake Shakes

Everything you love about cherry cheesecake in one glorious milkshake!  Cold ice cream blended together with fresh cherries and a few other goodies makes this milkshake the perfect treat after a hot day!   One of my favorite things to indulge in, especially during the summer is ice cream.   When we were kids, having a shake or malt was a treat that was always treasured, especially to enjoy outside on the porch at the end of a hot day.  My son continues this tradition and is a huge smoothie and shake lover, so we're always trying new combinations.  We recently came up with this Cherry Cheesecake Shake that is out-of-this-world fantastic!   These shakes are made with cream soda - blended with the cherries, cream cheese and ice cream, and then topped with a big Continue Reading...

Rosemary Citrus Water

Rosemary Citrus Water

Are you drinking enough water?  I can say with fair certainty that most days I don't drink enough.  I'm not a soda drinker, but I really love me a cup of coffee.  In fact, that's the first thing I go to in the morning.  Its not that I don't remind myself to drink more water, its just that I'm a little bored with plain, old water. This Rosemary Citrus Water is the perfect remedy for plain, old water.  The flavor is refreshing, but not overpowering.  The rosemary compliments the citrus flavors beautifully, and definitely helps encourage me to drink enough water throughout the day.  This water can also be used when wanting to detox, and its perfect when you're in the practice of clean eating, as there are no processed or refined products - just simple water, fruit and Continue Reading...

Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

How are mornings at your house?  If the answer is "rushed", "hectic", "chaotic" you're not alone.  This weekend was the dreaded daylight savings time, spring forward fiasco.  If you have school aged kids, you know exactly why I used the word "fiasco."  This time change puts a serious amount of stress on an already difficult morning routine.  Getting my child dressed, fed, and out the door is hard enough as it is, and then add sleep deprivation to all parties involved...well, you're lucky if everyone gets out the door without tears! I'm here to help...at least for getting you and your kids fed.  (As for the sleep deprivation, and getting dressed and whatnot, well, I don't have many solutions.)  :)  I do, however, have a quick, easy, healthy kid-friendly breakfast option that will Continue Reading...
