Super Easy Chicken Caeser Pasta Salad Recipe

Summer will be here before you know it! For work at home moms like me, that means I’ll have another little mouth to feed during lunch time, so my usual lunch of cheese and crackers, or the muffin I never finished at breakfast just isn’t going to cut it. So I needed to think of some recipes that are easy to make, quick to prepare (because just because my child is off during the summer doesn’t mean I am!), and something we would both enjoy. What is better than a cold pasta salad on a hot summer day? Not much I tell you! And this Super Easy Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad Recipe has quickly become a favorite in my house, so I wanted to share!  [Read More…]

4th of July Party

4th on the 5th

I’ve been knee deep in planning a 4th of July party.  Since many of my friends are watching fireworks or at family get-togethers, I’m starting a new tradition-the 4th on the 5th!  I downloaded some printables from Hostess with the Mostess (Amazing freebies), and scored some decor from my local crafts stores to create a really fun party!

The weather put a damper on my plans for outdoor set-up and activities, but I made do and set it all up on my porch.  I had originally planned potato sack races, but the weather put a stop to all that.  The kids, however, didn’t seem to mind at all, and played outside through the whole thing!  I just now got around to deep-cleaning my carpet and floors! LOL

We had hot dogs with all the trimmings, BBQ food, and cupcakes.

Guests got cute goodie bags, and we kept the party rolling with sparklers, poppers, and glow bracelets.

I made custom matchboxes by gluing the party squares onto the matchbooks.  Took just a few minutes and made a huge splash with the guests.

4th of July Party

Let me tell you-I made the BEST drink ever for this party-and it was SO simple.  I sliced up strawberries and put them in a container, topped with blueberries, and poured Sprite over the whole thing.  I let it sit for a few hours, and what emerged was a light, fruity, refreshing drink.  My guests loved it and I had tons of requests for the recipe.

I just HAD to include cotton candy.  The kids loved putting it in their drinks.

The decor was pretty simple to come by.  I purchased most of the goods from either the dollar store or my local Hobby Lobby.

At 2:30pm today it will be the official start of summer in our home! It’s my favorite time of year. As a WAHM I get the luxury of spending the summer hanging out with my daughter. This means days of playing at the park, staying up late to play Mario Kart together, and making lunches together. This also means that my usual lunch of peanut butter and crackers just isn’t going to cut it. So I’ve started meal planning and thinking of things that are quick, easy, and that we will both like.  [Read More…]

Strawberry With Goat Cheese And Basil Bruschetta Recipe

It’s strawberry season down here in Tennessee ya’ll! Nothing says summer like a ripe red strawberry on a hot day if you ask me! I’m lucky to live in an area surrounded by farmland. We have plenty of fresh fruit, farmers markets, and something my family and I love to do every summer, a strawberry patch! It is so fun to head to the strawberry patch and pick out some fresh strawberries first thing in the morning. Lucky for us our patch also happens to be on a pig farm, so we can pick up some fresh bacon and sausage as well. Which means after our visit we go home and make a yummy and super fresh breakfast! But there is one tiny downside. When you have a daughter that loves picking the strawberries, you end up with 4 pounds of strawberries. So you have to get a little creative in how you are going to eat all those strawberries before they go bad. But don’t you fret! There are So many ways to eat strawberries. Today I wanted to show you one of my favorite ways, my Strawberry with goat cheese and basil Bruschetta! It’s SO good you guys!  [Read More…]

Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

Super Simple Coleslaw Recipe

It’s officially coleslaw season again!  As summer approaches, our dinner menus begin to change.  This is the time of year when my husband starts grilling and I simply have to prepare side dishes.  For me, it’s a bonus because I have a recipe box filled with summer sides, including fresh salads and vegetables.  After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is put together a whole meal.

Our local farmer’s market just opened and, with all the fresh vegetables available, our family’s dinner side dishes no longer consist of frozen vegetables.  We’ll be enjoying zucchini, tomatoes, cabbage, radishes, green beans, bell peppers, peas, cucumbers, and asparagus fresh from the farm.

This family favorite simple coleslaw recipe is one which I adapted from my days of following The Flylady.  Instead of chopped cabbage and carrots, the recipes calls for these ingredients to be shredded.  My family is not fond of sweet coleslaw so this coleslaw, which is more on the tangy side, pleases everyone.

Here’s what you’ll need: [Read More…]
