It’s crazy to think that holiday season is right around the corner. I still can’t even accept the fact that Summer passed in the blink of an eye. (It must be a tell-tale sign of getting old). As October hits and our schedules start getting busier and busier, we have less time to think about gift ideas. With endless events, parties, birthdays, and holidays, they can sneak up on us and leave us scrambling. But, with a little prep work, or a saved pin on your pinterest board for later, you can store ideas away and be prepared well in advance this year! Today’s recipe works for just about any gift idea, and honestly, you can just keep it on hand at home, ready to pour when you have house guests stop by. This limoncello recipe is easier than pie, but it does take some patience and a little bit of time before it’s ready to sip.

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, but when that slight chill of fall starts to hit in the evenings, I get really excited. Not only does that mean that Halloween is on the way (my fave holiday), but also that it’s Football season!
It’s time to start thinking and prepping all of your delicious recipes for tailgating season and I’m sharing a fun and easy recipe with you guys today that might be something you’d normally never think about for college grill-gating season!
I’m sharing 3 twists on a normal grilled cheese sandwich to elevate your tailgate and take these gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches to another level!
These gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches are perfect for your tailgate menu! They are easy to make, easy to eat with your hands and mess free, and you can whip up enough for a football team really quickly! 😉 All very important tailgating musts!
I feel like a lot of people get overwhelmed when they hear the word “canning”. Granted, it can be a little intimidating if you’ve never tried it before or don’t know where to start, but I promise that it’s easier than it looks. Once you’ve nailed the process the first time around, you’ll be more willing to tackle new recipes and experiment with new flavors. And, I swear, it really is easier than it seems! 😉 And you’ll definitely want to keep canning after you taste how delicious this strawberry jam recipe is too!

I would definitely have to say that the kitchen is the heart of my home. Whenever I have friends or family over, somehow everyone always ends up congregating around the counter, munching on snacks and spending quality time together. So it’s always a MUST that I have something cooking or ready to serve for my get-togethers.
Today, I’m switching up a traditional recipe with a few unexpected ingredients, but a whole lot of flavor! This buffalo spinach artichoke dip is the perfect dish to serve your hungry guests and upgrade a common and basic appetizer into something fresh and new!

I’m all about easy recipes when it comes to summer entertaining and one that can serve a crowd is an added bonus! The last thing I want to do is spend all day inside prepping ingredients and slaving over a hot stove. But I definitely still want to create something that’s delicious and homemade too! Tough, right? Not exactly!
Today, I’m sharing a delicious recipe that checks all of those boxes and will still give you time to enjoy your guests and the outdoors too! These BBQ Pork Nachos are a crowd favorite and will easily become one of your go-to recipes as well!
July is full of many important dates, but there is one that remains one of my very faves. It’s July 31st and for my fellow Harry Potter fans, you know EXACTLY what this date symbolizes…the one and only birthday of Mr. Harry Potter, himself. It just didn’t seem right not to do something festive, so in true Let’s Mingle fashion, I whipped up a Harry Potter Butterbeer Birthday Cake to celebrate!
This cake is decorated to be a replica of the birthday cake that Hagrid gives to Harry for his eleventh birthday, but I did switch things up a little bit to up the ante. Instead of the traditional chocolate cake that he’s given in the book, I went with a butterbeer cake, because BUTTERBEER. No brainer there.
A little over a year ago, I did the un-thinkable. I gave up soda. I didn’t think I could do it, but alas, here I am…living on coffee, un-sweetened iced tea, and water. LOTS of water. And, guys, I’m soooo not a water person. As much as I try to enjoy it, I just don’t. I force myself to drink it because it’s good for me, but I’d really prefer a Dr. Pepper (just being honest!).
If you’re anything like me, and bored with your normal water routine, today’s post was made for you! I’m sharing a few simple fruit pairings that are going to punch up the flavor in your regular old glass of H2O, and they are a breeze to make! Infused fruit water couldn’t be easier and it’s sooooo delish! And that’s coming from a non-water fan too, so that’s gotta mean something 😉

I’m always on the hunt for healthy, quick, and easy dinner recipe ideas. Don’t get me wrong, I do like taking the time to prepare a fancy meal here and there, but during the week, after work, the last thing I want to do is spend hours in the kitchen slaving away over dinner. Especially with Summer here, I’d much rather be outside in the sunshine playing! Since I’m all about a yummy recipe, I figured it was only fair to share one of my very fave quick meals with you guys! (Trust me…you’ll thank me later!)
This recipe for chicken rice bowls is so easy to make, healthy, filling, delicious, and the perfect quick meal to prep in the Summer (or anytime!) when you just want to get outside! [Read more…]
