Hello friends! Long time, no talk right? I wasn’t intending on a two-week radio silence around here, but it seems that’s exactly what happened. I decided to take the first week of June off to concentrate on some behind-the-scenes work that’s going on, and that week sorta turned into two. But I figured most people were busy with end-of-school activities, graduations, pool days and vacations, so you probably didn’t miss me all that much (but let’s pretend you did, okay?).
I am getting back into my regular posting schedule with a delicious announcement today. I am very excited to be included in the Simply Summer Blogger Cookbook from my friends at Wayfair! This cookbook is chock-full of tasty recipes and refreshing drinks. – just in time for summer entertaining and relaxing!
This cookbook has everything from appetizers and sides to main courses, drinks and desserts. So really, everything you could want or need to plan a delicious meal! And it’s completely free. You can download your digital copy right here.
I am thrilled to have my Sparkling Ginger Lemonade recipe included in the cookbook on pages 96-97. It’s a a little tart, a little sweet, fizzy and refreshing. So it’s basically the perfect drink for summer!
My ginger lemonade recipe is in excellent company; I’ve been bookmarking a bunch of new recipes to try, from the Grapefruit Bourbon Cocktail on page 103 to the Sun-dried Tomato and Bacon sandwiches on page 61 to the S’mores in a Jar on page 135. My mouth is already watering a bit 😉
In case you’re curious about the behind-the-scenes stuff I mentioned earlier, I am working on revamping things around here. My blog has looked the same since September of 2013, and well, I was getting a little bored with it. I hired an amazing designer to freshen up my logo, my sweet hubs (i.e. my tech guru) is updating the look of my site for desktop and mobile and we’re working on some new features to make it easier to search for projects and tutorials. I’m also working on creating and launching a newsletter to give you guys more peeks at what life behind the blog is like (spoiler alert: it’s probably a lot like yours!). I get excited about these sorts of things; hopefully you do too! Or maybe I’m just a little nerdy like that 😉
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been up to. How about you?
