Watermelon Cooler

It’s been a billion degrees here the last few weeks, and we’ve all been melting. We’ve been flying through water and popsicles, but I wanted the kids to have something a little healthier to help keep them cool. Annabel loves watermelon, so I made her a watermelon slushie drink — and I added some Prosecco…

Spiced Strawberry Sangria

On my birthday, I ordered a spiced strawberry sangria to enjoy while we lounged by the pool. It was sooo good and very refreshing, and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since. I figured out the recipe and it’s even more delicious at home when I don’t have to pay $14 for one glass!

The kids all run around in the rec room, and the adults have fun upstairs watching the broadcast from Times Square while we eat a dozen different appetizers. Besides bringing food, I also volunteered to bring a drink. I wanted to find something that could…

Strawberry Chicken Salad

A few years ago my friend Amy completely revamped her health by adding in exercise and changing the way she ate. Two years later, she’s lost a ton of weight (ten sizes!) and is now a marathon runner. When I started trying to get my health back after James was born, she was not only my…

Coconut Lime Sublime + Giveaway

When we were in Hawaii last fall, my parents watched the kids one night so Mike and I could have a date night. We went to eat at a restaurant called Fleetwood’s (as in Mick) where we had a delicious meal while we watched the sun set over Molokai. My drink from that night stands…
