This summer I have become quite addicted to brewing my own Iced Coffee. I always have plenty of BAILEY’S Coffee Creamer on hand as well!
Thanks to everyone who gave great vacations suggestions! If you have a minute, I’m still looking for more ideas, so pop on over HERE and check it out!
Hopefully you all are having a great summer! Let’s get to this week’s links!
Most Drool Worthy Photo: Almond Joy Milkshake from Edible Perspective. Insane, right?
Dinner Inspiration: I think my husband would stay at work if I make this for dinner, but these Portabella Mushroom Burgers look divine! Topped with a chimichurri guacamole and I’m on cloud 9. I’ll be sure to have “regular” burgers for the hubs next week!
What’s New: I picked out paint color (FINALLY) for my kitchen. Hoping to get things painted next week! But I also want to make some of these cute painted glass mason jars! Kids project?
Very Pinteresting: If you love Pinterest, be sure to follow me! I created another new board this week, NO BAKE DESSERTS. One of the first No Bake recipes I put on the blog two years ago was for these Apple Nachos. It was a quick snack I served up the kids outside and it became a huge hit on the blog! I hope you make some soon!
I’m Lovin It: I recently got the opportunity to try some TCHO Chocolate. I am in love. I’m quite particular about my chocolate, and especially about melting the chocolate for truffles and candy. I want something that tastes good, but works smoothly (literally). I love that TCHO Chocolate is an organic chocolate! You can count on seeing it in some recipes soon! Just a sneak peak, this recipe is coming Sunday!
Books: So, new category, I thought I’d share some interesting reads with you all each coffee time. Seeing that I spend much of my coffee drinking time while reading a book, it seemed appropriate. Plus, so many of you are awesome in sharing book recommendations to me on facebook, that it’s a pay it forward. I just recently finished the book, “What Alice Forgot” from Liane Moriarty. OH MY GOSH. I see why so many of you told me to read this book! I started it one evening, stayed up WAY too late, then finished it the following evening. It was SO SO good. Just be prepared to get nothing done for a good 48 hours. Stay tuned cause I just finished another AWESOME BOOK….
Most Popular this Week: One of my old recipes hit the top 5 this week on the blog. These Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream are amazing. The cupcake base is from scratch, using my favorite white cake recipe with some added lemon. I topped them with a pile of lemon buttercream frosting and some sparkling sugar. Trust me when I say you want to make these this summer!!!
