4th of July Snacks and Drinks

Good morning!  Can you believe that it’s already half way through the year?  Like…this is crazy!  Before you know it, it’s going to be Christmas!  I might need to start on my Christmas wish list come to think of it…

But before we get lost in the thoughts of Christmas, we have to celebrate 4th of July.  I posted this last year so it is a repost, but I enjoy all of these.  Especially the first recipe, I have made it multiple times for not only the 4th but other holidays as well.  So I hope you enjoy and get some ideas for your 4th of July party!

Apple Recipes

Hello!  It’s almost fall, right?  Maybe…  Okay, so here in California it is nowhere near fall, it is still very hot.  But, one of my favorite things about fall is apple foods.  Apple Cider, apple fritters, caramel apples, the list goes on.  So I decided to start a little early and give you a bunch of apple recipes that made my mouth water.

PS-if you want an awesome apple drink from Starbucks, get the Caramel Apple Spice.  It is a wonderful fall drink.

Enjoy!

Fourth of July Food!

Hello!  Is everyone ready for the 4th of July?  Last week I showed you some awesome decor and today I’m bringing you food.  Don’t worry there is still plenty of time to make these deliciously sweet treats for your party.

Some of these are healthy, others are not.  And the one drink does contain alcohol.  These are your forewarnings.  But other than that, enjoy!

Camping Round Up

Hello!  Is everyone out of school yet?  If so, hooray!  Time for Summer!  If not, I am so sorry.

One of the things my family does every year is go camping.  Mom even has two camping trips planned for this summer alone.  As I’ve gotten older, I haven’t enjoyed going as much.  But, I definitely enjoyed going as a kid and having fun at either the beach or the lake.  But I have put together a list of some things that you might enjoy for your next camping trip.

And at the end of the post, comment where your favorite place to go camping is.  Maybe I can check them out one day. 😉
