Oh summer! How I love thee! Kids outside playing. Pool is filled up. (Who cares if it's just a kiddie pool? Don't judge me.) Baseball is happening. (Course, isn't always baseball happening? I mean, they start in March and go to October...what other sport does that?!) A lot of good is to be had during summer.

One thing that is REALLY good to do in the summer is to make homemade creamsicles. (Course, it's really good any time of the year. Again, don't judge me.) Now, I don't know if there's an official definition of what goes into a creamsicle versus a popsicle. But, to my little ol' noggin, a creamsicle is ice cream based and a popsicle isn't. So that's why I'm calling these creamsicles. Whatever you call it, I love them! Read More...

But we sometimes mix things up and have something sweet - especially if I've recently made cookies or homemade creamsicles! Sweet is great, but I like serving sweet and healthy! Read More...

20 Amazing Instant Pot Beef Recipes!

instantpotbeef

I always thought my slow cooker made amazing and tender beef, until I discovered the Instant Pot. If you haven't cooked beef in a pressure cooker yet, you are missing out! The meat is so tender and delicious. I made gravy from the juice from my last Instant Pot beef roast and it was the best gravy I've ever had in my life (I'm not kidding).

Bonus, is that you can cook an entire beef roast in just 60-75 minutes with better results than an all-day slow cook! I've been searching for more Instant Pot recipes to add to my weekly plans, because they are so easy, quick and yummy! Here are some delicious Instant Pot beef recipes to try. Read More...

I love it when I have almost unlimited time to make dinner.  I can take my time, not rush and have all the ingredients for everything I ever wanted on hand.  Just kidding - I don't have many days like that.  I have days where I'm just happy that dinner isn't cereal or popcorn.  My Continue Reading...
