Frosé- Cool and Refreshing

Frosé with added strawberries

The temperatures are rising, and everyone is in need of a cool, refreshing drink! I obviously always think pink 😉 and Frosé is just that! Refreshing, tasty, and aesthetically pleasing. I’ve already made this recipe twice and it has been a hit at both events. The first time I followed the recipe exactly, and the second time I decided to add the strawberries into it in addition to the strawberry syrup. It made it a bit sweeter and brighter, but you did end up with seeds in the drink at the end. I would recommend following the recipe, or at least blend the strawberries separate and then use a sieve to get out the seeds. Add any fun or cute garnishes and sip and enjoy… ahhh!!!!

Can’t Pass Up- Cobb Salad

cobb

Summer is here with the hot temps and the longer days. My husband and I have been eating lighter and healthier recently as you can tell with my recent blog posts 🙂

This particular cobb salad is from a restaurant we went to in Disney World and I just looked up a copy cat recipe for it because it is THAT good!

I make tweaks and changes to recipes to cater more towards what I like but I used this recipe and then added some of my own ideas:

  • I did grilled chicken as opposed to roasted chicken
  • Instead of the 3 different types of lettuce we did heart of romaine
  • I added cucumber and red onion- so add any extra vegetables you like in salads!

FYI the dressing makes a TON so make sure to half it if you don’t want that much dressing, however, it is so good, we use it on all our salads so the extra bit definitely gets used in our house!

Grilled Chicken and Corn Summer Salad

salad and artichoke

Good afternoon and Happy Friday everyone!!! I have been so darn busy and have neglected my blog as of late and I apologize for that. With summer just around the corner, we are all wanting those bikini bod’s 😉 so I am posting a delicious, filling, and healthy salad that I made. Skinnytaste is one of my favorite places to pull recipes from because they are delicious yet healthy. I followed this recipe pretty closely, but decided to grill the corn to make it a little more ‘summer-esque’ if you will. I grilled the corn about 15 minutes (until it was charred on all sides) and then cut it off the cob into the salad. You could really make this recipe your own- whether you sub black beans for chick peas, add cucumber, scrap the onion if you have a hot date- the skies the limit on this salad!

I paired our salad with an artichoke because how can you not? They are in season, at the farmers market every Saturday, healthy, and delicious 🙂 Maybe enjoy it with a nice glass of white wine? I didn’t have any on hand so yes, that is a cider beer in a wine glass.

Chat with you all soon!
