Summer Berries Cheesecake Bars

Summer Berries Cheesecake Bars

This recipe came about by accident, sort of. I was looking for a recipe online that I could make to use up all the blackberries I have growing in my garden. Eventually I found a simple enough cheesecake recipe and bought all the ingredients to make it, but on the day I decided to make it, the blackberries were not ripe yet! So, I swapped the blackberries for frozen summer berries (which I always have in the freezer), and it was a hit!

Hibiscus Iced Tea Recipe

Hibiscus Iced Tea Recipe

Ever since making my Hibiscus Margarita , I've been obsessing over new ways to include Hibiscus in other recipes. I know that iced tea is not necessarily a groundbreaking recipe to use hibiscus in, but since summer's here, I'm sharing another tasty beverage that you can whip up in no time to refresh your taste buds! This hibiscus iced tea is also super pretty, and the ideal drink to serve to the whole family at your 4th of July celebrations!

Red, White and Blue 4th of July Layer Cake

Red, White and Blue 4th of July Layer Cake

I'm so excited to share my latest layer cake creation with you guys, in time for the 4th of July!  This red white and blue patriotic 4th of July cake was inspired by fireworks, and so I think it's safe to say more is more in this case? 😁 It's a vanilla sponge layer cake in red, white and blue on the inside and out, and covered in a vanilla American buttercream, drenched in patriotic sprinkles and fun swirls on the top! What's not to love?!

Strawberries and Cream Popsicles Recipe

Strawberries and Cream Popsicles Recipe

Thank you Brawny® Tear-A-Square® for sponsoring this post. Think of all the ways you can Put a Square There! Popsicles are one of those recipes that is super easy to make, but feels like a real treat every time. My kids love to eat fruit, but turning their favorite fruits or fruit juices into popsicles instantly turns me into super-mom in their eyes! Bonus points if I can actually turn a dessert into a popsicle, like I did with these strawberries and cream popsicles!

Watermelon & Rosé Granita Cocktail

Watermelon & Rosé Granita Cocktail

Watermelon rhyme with summer, right?! But so does a chilled Rosé wine. So I thought, why not combine the two for a tasty and easy to make semi-frozen granita (or slushie) cocktail?! So that's what I did! And now do, most times when I'm hosting a get-together or summer party. Mainly because this watermelon and rosé wine cocktail is super refreshing for hot summer days, but also fun and mega simple to make. And can we take a sec to appreciate how pretty it also looks?! Win-win! 😊

Red, White & Blue Summer Berry Parfaits

Red, White & Blue Summer Berry Parfaits

4th of July is 'round the corner and if you need an easy, tasty and quick to make NO-BAKE recipe , then this is IT! This red, white and blue summer berries parfait is just parfait!  😊 It uses all seasonal fruits, but you could also change up the flavor combos to suit your taste or occasion. For the 4th of July celebrations, we had to go with red, white and blue berries for the patriotic touch, of course!

Red Berries Healthy & Skinny Iced Tea Recipe

Red Berries Healthy & Skinny Iced Tea Recipe

I told you I was really into my iced teas this summer! This version came about because of the abundance of blackberries and raspberries we have growing in the garden . More fruit than I know what to do with, so naturally I turned to my love of fruity iced teas. And I'm doubly excited as I know have a fully functioning patio just outside my studio to do all these summer shoots for you guys! :)
