After 7 years of blogging (that’s right, my 7 year blogiversary is in 2 days!) one of my favorite things to do is take two really popular recipes and mash them up!

Enter 15 Minute Spicy Vegetable Pad Thai & Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls!

During football season, we go through A LOT of French Onion Dip around our house! It’s Kurt’s favorite and he demands it every Sunday while watching games.

I make my own French Onion Dip Mix, which is perfect for mixing with sour cream to make the dip on Sunday’s, but it’s also great for adding to lots of delicious recipes throughout the week, like this French Onion Chicken Pasta!

Of course Kurt was more than willing to taste test this recipe three times before I perfected it for the blog! 😉

Spinach Feta Mini Pies with Puff Pastry Criss Cross Crust

Raise your hand if you love picnics! Living in San Diego with almost perfect weather year-round, we love doing picnics at the beach and the parks in our neighborhood.

Sometimes, we wrap up Chicken Fajita Burritos and take those on our picnic (so very So Cal of us!), other times we just grab a baguette, cheese, crackers and fruit and make it a charcuterie plate picnic and sometimes we invite friends and make it a potluck picnic, which is perfect for bringing these mini pies, also known as picnic pies (fitting!) or hand pies. Basically they’re an individual, hand-held pie that’s easy to transport!

Mini pies can be sweet or savory and since I’ve already made recipes for sweet Strawberry Mini Pies and Cranberry Pomegranate Mini Pies, I decided to go savory for these picnic pies!

The temperatures have been soaring lately and I’ve found myself reaching for frozen cocktails by the pool every chance I’ve had! So far this summer I’ve been blending up these Strawberry Watermelon White Wine Slushies, Frozen Mango Margaritas and Lemon Berry White Wine Slushies!

Last weekend, I decided that it was time to turn one of my most popular cocktail recipes for White Peach Sangria into a frozen cocktail and boy, am I glad I did!

This sangria tastes like you’re sipping on a fresh peach slushie, that also happens to have white wine it! It’s so refreshing and SO easy to blend up with just 4 ingredients in only 5 minutes!
