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!
The autumn breezes might be blowing in and the smell of pumpkin spice might be filling the air but summer isn’t over just yet! You still have time to make these awesome (and easy!) DIY watercolor placemats to set your table for any upcoming labor day or summer barbecues and events!
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 😉
We’re deep into the Summer party season and keeping drinks cold always seems to be at the forefront of any party planners mind when you’re dealing with summer sun and 100 degree heat. But using the same old (ugly, sorry, but it’s true!) cooler, gets a little boring and doesn’t exactly omit a party vibe. Today’s project will do both with style! These DIY drink buckets are easy to make, will keep all of those drinks icy cold, and will also do it with a bit more flair!

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!)

I couldn’t be more thrilled that Summer is around the corner. I feel like Winter is holding on for dear life over here in Utah, despite it being JUNE, and I’m trying to be as patient as possible. But I can’t help getting caught up in all of the Summer planning. Barbecues, pool parties, picnics, and sports! I’m a HUGE sports girl and try to incorporate attending live games anywhere I can. Soccer is one of those fun summer sports that you can really get into. The crowd is a blast, the atmosphere at the games is electric, the food is amazing, and…BEER! Am I right?! Today’s post is all about incorporating all of those things into a delicious recipe for beer burgers with melted beer cheese.
