My Recipes
Watermelon Mojitos
Hooray for the weekend! I'm sharing Watermelon Mojitos (single & pitcher) and a little celebration ! On my heart are those impacted by Harvey. So much devastation.....but it's inspiring to see how people are coming together to help one another including animals, both wild and domestic. In addition to supporting the American Red Cross, let's remember that the Humane Society of the US and the SPCA needs our support too. They work tirelessly to help animals impacted by this storm. Both websites have info on how we can help. Y'all have a beautiful weekend.
Welcoming summer with a fizzy Honey Sweetened Fresh Cherry Limeade!! The big sister says to add a glug of vodka, but either way, this is a fabulous way to keep cool! The solstice was yesterday... just like that, the days start to get shorter. How are you spending these long Summer days? More time lingering in the early morning sun, late days at the beach..? Grab some fresh cherries at the market and make this! You're going to love it!
