I have also found that these easy desserts that don’t require any baking are always a crowd pleaser. They are perfect for picnics, parties, and barbecues in the backyard. You guys are going to love all of these incredible recipes for summer!
Hi everyone!! It’s Amanda here, from Old House to New Home. I sharing with you today my ¨signature” cupcake recipe. I am not the most avid baker in the world, but when I need to make a treat for someone’s birthday or special event, this is my go to recipe. They are super easy, so delicious, and everyone always asks for the recipe. Strawberries and Cream filled cupcakes sounds so fancy, but you will be surprised at how easy these are!
Hello PinkWhen readers! I am Bethany, and I blog at Whistle and Ivy. With springtime in full-swing here in Utah, I am so excited to share these delicious and springy Pink Lemonade Crinkle Cookies! Everyone in our house loved them, and they were gone quicker than it took to make them (which wasn’t very long!).
Do you love salads, or do you tolerate them? I have to admit that I can go crazy over them. However, there are a few select salads that I just ADORE and will eat any chance I can.
This Turkey Avocado BLT Salad recipe is one of them. It has everything I love on a bed of lettuce, and it is just downright delicious. Don’t believe me?
Check it out and see for yourself. Oh, and it’s also WHOLE 30 and PALEO compliant.
Hi everyone! It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I’m back again this month to show you a very simple, but sweet mason jar craft for spring. In fact, this little polka dot mason jar vase would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, and it can be used again and again. Or, if you’ve got a thing for mason jars like I do, you can even make some to give away to the moms and grandmas in your life and some extras to keep. It’s that easy!
I love a good roast, but when I only have to use two ingredients and have perfectly tender roast, I love it even more. This easy 2 Ingredient Crock Pot Roast recipe should be on your to-do list for dinner in the next week. It’s a family favorite, and an easy recipe that tastes like you have been cooking all day long. Are you ready to see how simple this roast really is?
When I put together this list of 25+ Amazing Dip Recipes, I had no idea how hungry writing this post was going to make me. I mean, some of these dips are so delicious looking, I may have drooled on my keyboard. (Maybe.) You can find everything from chicken, to spinach, pepper, and more! Check out all of these amazing dip recipes, and surprise all of your friends with a new one at your next get together. Take your Summer get togethers to a whole new level!
When I am hungry I always look for a quick and easy snack idea. I don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands, so being able to grab a SNICKERS® and keep moving works perfectly for me and my busy schedule. You can eat it on the go all by itself, (or if you have a little time), it even works well with your favorite greek yogurt. It’s one of my favorite ways to eat it!
I have been going a little stir crazy in the last week. Mostly because I just recently turned 40, but also because I have packed on a few extra pounds that I did not have earlier in the year. They always say things slow down a bit when you turn 40, but I am going to fight back. One of the ways I am doing that is with this healthy (and protein packed) Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Quinoa Casserole. It’s one of my favorite quick dinner recipes.
Hello PinkWhen readers! Justine from Cooking and Beer here. Can you believe it’s April already? I definitely can not believe it’s April. I feel like Christmas was just yesterday, and this might be because I still have yet to take down all of my Christmas decorations. Yes, I’m THAT person. Anyway, I’m obsessed with all things spring lately. The weather here in Colorado has been absolutely GORGEOUS, and asparagus, peas and strawberries are bombarding the produce shelves of our local market. I knew I had to highlight strawberries in a crepe recipe, so these strawberry cheesecake chocolate crepes were the first thing to come to mind!

If you live in Louisiana like I do, you know that when Spring hits and the flowers start blooming, so does the infestation of the mosquitoes. In fact, I always joke that mosquitoes are our actual state bird, and they can make spending time outdoors a nuisance. That’s why I decided to put together a list of plants that are a natural mosquito repellent. You don’t have to cover yourself in chemicals to keep them away, let mother nature help you out naturally.
These Creamy Lime Pie Square Bites are one of my new favorite things to make. In fact, they are so delicious, I am planning on making them for an upcoming birthday party I am helping with. They are easy to make – and just downright delicious! You only need a few ingredients on hand and a little time in the kitchen to make this little dessert masterpiece. It’s also a perfect Summer treat!
We have a need for all natural bug spray. I live in Louisiana, and we have a major problem with ‘bugs’ down here in the humid states. The mosquitoes here are quite literally the size of small birds in some areas. I think I have even heard stories of small animals being taken away by a freakishly large breed of mosquito. I am totally kidding about that last part, but seriously, they are quite big.
Needless to say, if you are going to be out between dusk and dawn, you are going to need a bug spray. I like to use an All Natural Bug Spray. I HATE the store bought kind, and I decided to make my own bug spray that I think works really well. That’s why today I am going to share with you this simple recipe to help keep you bite free from some of those nasty little critters.
This Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe is now one of my families favorite recipes to make. It is quick, easy, and CRAZY delicious. It really doesn’t get much better than this. Not to mention, all you need for a side is a little chips and salsa. It’s one of my new favorites, and perfect for Cinco de Mayo. Check out how easy this layered casserole is to make!
I love Spring, and I love adding new touches to our front door. I love to make our home more inviting by adding an outdoor wreath, and my favorite time of the year is Spring. I do have to make a terrible admission: I left my Christmas wreath up at my front door until this past week. Yes people, it is March. I know. Even my neighbor begged me to take it down. I finally did, and then I quickly added this beautiful Spring Floral Outdoor Wreath. It’s so bright and inviting, and it screams SPRING.
Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, back this month sharing a to die for recipe! I first had these Simple Banana Bread Brownies last summer at my sister in law’s and I think about them every so often and how good they were. I see them all over Pinterest as well, usually covered in a delicious looking Browned Butter Frosting. I wanted to try something different with these though, and since banana and peanut butter is such a great combo, I decided to give it a try. Simple Banana Bread Brownie Recipe.
Hello PinkWhen readers! I am Bethany and I blog at Whistle and Ivy, and I am so excited to share this project with you today. Springtime has been wonderful here in Utah and we have been loving the warm sunshine and opening up the windows. The sunlight shines beautifully through my kitchen window and I knew it would be the perfect place for this Faux Stained Glass Suncatcher.
I have wanted to do a master list for grilling recipes for the longest time. When the weather is right, we love to light up the grill.

Hello again PinkWhen readers, it’s Brandy here from BD Design Blog. If you follow me on Instagram you may know that I was in California this last week and the orange blossoms were so intoxicating. With Spring right around the corner the flowers will be blooming and I can’t wait. I don’t know about you but I LOVE having fresh flowers in pretty vases in my home. They look beautiful and smell amazing. Anytime I am at Trader Joe’s or another grocery store, I have to pick up a bundle of fresh flowers. They just make me happy. And if they make me happy, I’m sure they make others happy too so what about GIVING a friend a bouquet of fresh cut flowers to say “thank you” or JUST BECAUSE! It’s thoughtful, easy, and INEXPENSIVE.
Hi there! It’s Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama, and I’m so happy to be back again this month to share a cute spring craft with all of you! I think we’re all ready for spring, right?! I’ve been just the tiniest bit obsessed with egg crafts lately, and I especially love the look of blue robin eggs. So, I thought it would be fun to make some aqua blue DIY twine eggs to add a touch of spring to the house.
