Grilled Tomato and Arugula Pizza

It’s really starting to warm up outside and I’m so ready for summer BBQs and parties! I love nothing more than firing up the grill to make delicious food and sip on perfectly cool and refreshing drinks!

My new favorite drink for summer is going to be Henry’s Hard Sparkling Water! I’m obsessed with sparkling water and drink it every single day, so when they asked me to give these a try, I knew they’d be right up my alley!

No-Bake Banana Split Dessert

No-Bake Banana Split Dessert

Memorial Day weekend is here and it’s the unofficial start to summer! The summer parties are about to kick into high gear and I’m always looking for new party-friendly dishes.

The banana split is one of my favorite ice cream treats this time of year and I’ve given it a fun party twist and is melt-free! It’s so simple and best of all, no-bake!

I wasn’t really sure what to call this. It’s not a cake, and it’s not really pie either so I’m just going with “dessert”. I know, so original, but I think it works.

Creamy Coconut Peanut Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles)

Creamy Coconut Peanut Zucchini Noodles, Zoodles

I’m not really sure why, but I feel like I’ve been on a bit of a carb binge lately. Last week we had something “carby” for dinner almost every night. Needless to say, I didn’t meal plan very well and now I’ve been feeling so…icky! I partially blame the weather. It’s been kind of cloudy and in the 60s which seems kind of odd for Orange County this time of year.

I’ve been craving ALL of the veggies so I made these scrumptious zoodles tossed in a light and creamy peanut sauce and they totally hit the spot!

Dark Chocolate Pastry Cups

Dark Chocolate Pastry Cups

I’ve had some wicked dark chocolate cravings lately. Not sure why (No, I am NOT pregnant), but my favorite dessert lately has just been a handful of dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate is always my chocolate of choice.

I made these easy dark chocolate pastry cups a few weeks ago and they are truly the perfect little dessert for parties and showers. I just mixed some homemade whipped cream with melted dark chocolate (and a touch of sugar!) and spooned it into pre-made mini pastry shells!

Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli

Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli, Garlic

Roasted broccoli. I know, some of you guys may be like, what the heck kind of silly recipe is this, right? The thing is, people always ask me for ideas for side dishes so I thought I’d share my most favorite way to make broccoli!

Broccoli is easily my most favorite veggie. And although Maddie isn’t a fan, Natalie also loves it so I make it multiple times a week in our house.

Slow Cooker Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs

Slow Cooker Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs, Crockpot

Confession. It’s been a reallllly long time since I last pulled out my slow cooker. I drank the Instant Pot Kool-Aid last summer and I haven’t looked back since. It’s not that I hated my slow cooker, but with working full-time and being so busy, the IP seems to better fit our life during the weekdays.

I’ve been feeling a little sad for my slow cooker. And while I love how quickly the IP cooks everything, there is something really comforting about the smell of a delicious meal cooking low and slow on a lazy Sunday afternoon and I’ve missed it!

So, I dug it back out last week and made these awesome mozzarella-stuffed meatballs!
