Perfect Pancakes

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I make a lot of pancakes. Like, a lot of pancakes. My kids request them at least once a week and I’m always trying to make them better. Years ago, I learned from a Bobby […]

Summer Fun with a Bubble Machine!

Summer Fun with a Bubble Machine!

Full disclosure, I was sent this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. There is nothing quite like kids and bubbles, especially kids and bubbles in the summertime! We spend most summer afternoons by our pool, so with swimsuits on, […]

Pigtail Flippers for Grilling – (and other unexpected uses)!

Pigtail Flippers for Grilling – (and other unexpected uses)!

Full disclosure, these pigtail flippers were sent to me by Cave Tools, but my opinions are all 100% authentic. If you follow me on Instagram, and if you don’t you probably should (I’m here), you’ll know that we are all about grilling all summer long. […]

S’mores Cones

S’mores Cones

When spaghetti and meatballs was requested, naturally I figured I’d just find a way to sneak in some barbecue. I’m pretty sure I figured it out actually. My plan was to make the sauce early in the day, as usual, and make the spaghetti shortly […]

Barbecue Chicken Souvlaki

Barbecue Chicken Souvlaki

Tonight’s dinner has been my favorite so far, and actually the second time I’ve made it this summer but the first time I’ve made it since Memorial Day when we started this. I grew up in Greek restaurant kitchens, so this meal was a staple […]

Top Sirloin with Mushrooms & Onions

Top Sirloin with Mushrooms & Onions

Day 9 and yes, this is the second time I’ve grilled a top round sirloin. It’s my husband’s favorite and while he is a good sport when it comes to my ridiculous cooking experiments, I need to feed him dinners I know he loves in […]
