This hibiscus iced tea is also super pretty, and the ideal drink to serve to the whole family at your 4th of July celebrations!

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

Summer rhymes with BBQ and eating outdoors, so we've been cooking most of our evening meals on the BBQ this summer. It's a bliss not to have the oven on inside the house, and somehow, food just tastes so much better al-fresco, don't you think? So a few weeks ago, we decide on a baked version of the classic shrimp boil. But because it's cooked on a sheet pan on the barbecue...we called it BBQ shrimp.

What's not to love?!
