I’m giving away a copy of this book! Check out the giveaway at the bottom of the post.

About a month ago, I was at a bookstore, browsing through the cookbook section. I came across a copy of The Soda Fountain and was smitten from the beginning because of the cover. Yep – I totally judge a book by it’s cover. :) I put it on my never ending list of books that I wanted to buy.

But lucky me, not long after, I was offered a copy for review. I couldn’t pass it up – especially since it’s the perfect time of year for a book all about ice cream floats, sundaes, egg creams and more!

This simple white pizza recipe is made on the grill and topped with mozzarella, ricotta, and lots of salty bacon.

Grilled White Pizza Recipe with Bacon and BasilThis post has been sponsored by Jones Dairy Farm.

We are to that time of year when you start hearing complaints about the heat. And it’s true. It’s hot outside.

I will be completely honest and tell you that most of the time, it doesn’t really bother me. I’m inside most of the time, avoiding the heat as much as I can. But when I do have to venture outside, I know that it’s hot.

I will also admit that I totally turn the oven on all summer. I’m lucky. I live in a house with central air, and that air conditioner works pretty amazingly well, and normally, it’s not that bad when I turn the oven on. I know. I’m spoiled. :)

This easy no-yeast breadstick recipe makes breadsticks that are light and flaky – a perfect addition to any meal.

Sour Cream Breadstick Recipe

I am a bread person. My husband is not. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting to make bread with every meal. But it can get dangerous. I mean – I’m not the only one who eats it – one of my boys is a carb addict, just like his mamma. But it’s still dangerous because I want to eat all the bread.

A lot of the time, I resist, and just make some vegetable instead. (I know – boring!) But sometimes, I cave. Sometimes it’s too easy to cave when you have a breadstick recipe like this one that comes together so easily and quickly. These aren’t your typical breadsticks, but more like biscuit sticks, but they are oh, so good. Flaky and buttery and not dry at all, this breadstick recipe is a great one to have on hand for crazy busy weeknights.

Tilapia is covered with a slightly spicy sauce that keeps it nice and moist with roasted corn on top for an amazingly easy summer supper. You can also use frozen corn and serve this year round!

Tilapia with Roasted Corn

I love summer. I really do. I know it’s so hot that sometimes you just don’t have the energy to do anything, and I know that the kids complain about being bored. But the long days. The camping. The lack of snow. ;)

And the produce. Let’s not forget the produce.

Sometimes I think that I need to be more aware of what’s in season. But then the summer produce starts hitting the shelves, and I think I do ok. Especially when it comes to corn. (And peaches – but we’ll save that one for another day.)

We have been going crazy with the corn lately. And the Utah corn hasn’t even hit the stands yet. But that hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on corn every single time I go to the grocery store. I’ve already made a delicious corn chowder this year, but mostly, we’ve stuck to eating it right off the cob. Today, though, it’s all about the roasted corn.

Moist almond cupcakes made from scratch are topped with a light and fluffy cherry buttercream, made from fresh cherries.

Almond Cupcakes with Fresh Cherry Frosting

I’m not a live-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of girl. I like a schedule, and for the most part, I like predictability. Boring, right? Sometimes I wish I was more carefree, but I’m not one of those people that wake up in the morning saying “what am I going to do today?” I already know. Sometimes – or most of the time – the day doesn’t go exactly as planned, but there is almost always a plan.

As a blogger, I have a schedule, and I stick to it. I like to keep things organized, and I have an editorial calendar that I refer to often. At any given time, I probably have at the very least 2 weeks worth of recipes that are already made and photographed, just waiting to get posted.

Lemon Shrimp Kabobs

Is it just me, or is the summer flying by? I can hardly believe it when I look at the calendar and it’s already the 14th of July. (Which happens to be my hubby’s birthday – Happy Birthday, love, even though I’m sure you aren’t reading this!) But the middle of July to me pretty much means that the summer is halfway through, and before we know it, people are going to start talking about back to school. I’m totally aware that the store’s shelves are already crammed full of school supplies, but forgive me if I still want to celebrate summer. :)
