You have to try this homemade version of the Sonic Strawberry Kiwi Slushie! It blends fresh fruit together into an icy cold beverage, perfect for kids and great for summer!
Fun Whitney fact of the day, my first job when I was 16 years old was a carhop at Sonic in Oklahoma! No, I did not wear roller skates. Yes, I did eat too many onion rings to count and drank my weight in slushies over the summer months!
For those that aren’t familiar, Sonic is a fast food chain that started in Oklahoma in 1953. The chain is most known for their extensive drink menu and slushies. My favorite Sonic slushie of all time was their Strawberry Kiwi Slush, but it was taken off the menu over a decade ago.
I decided to make my own at home and I have to say, it’s even BETTER than the Sonic version! It’s so easy to make with just 4 ingredients, 3 of which are fresh fruit, making it a healthier option than a Sonic slush.
Kids and adults will love sipping on these fresh fruit slushies all summer long!
Strawberry Bruschetta is made with fresh basil, strawberries, balsamic vinegar & goat cheese. It’s an easy recipe, made in just 10 minutes, perfect for brunch, appetizers or dessert! It’s wonderful as a Summer snack or the start to a Valentine’s Day meal!
To say I’m a huge fan of bruschetta would be a total understatement. Traditional bruschetta is an Italian appetizer that consists of grilled bread, rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Most commonly in America, it’s also topped with diced tomatoes.
I’ve also taken the base of bruschetta, grilled bread with toppings, and put my own spins on it. From Avocado Bruschetta, to Greek Bruschetta, to this delicious Strawberry Bruschetta. The bruschetta toppings really are endless!

Creamy goat cheese, fresh strawberries and balsamic vinegar are a winning combo! Serve it all on top of a crispy baguette and you’ve got yourself one delicious recipe!

Sweet treats for breakfast are one of my guilty pleasures. And these Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Syrup are at the top of my guilty pleasure list!
Cream Cheese Syrup, yes that is an actual thing. And if not, I just made it happen! You’re welcome! 😉
I’ve been making these homemade pancakes for years and I guarantee they’ll be the best, most fluffy pancakes you’ve ever had. You can even substitute other ingredients for the strawberries, such as blueberries, chocolate chips or sliced bananas.
Adding the cream cheese syrup is totally optionally. But I would be doing you a disservice if I didn’t highly encourage you to make the cream cheese syrup!

Fresh lemons and strawberries are mixed with bubbly prosecco for a refreshing prosecco sangria recipe. It’s perfect for spring and summer!
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, there’s a great chance you’ve heard me talk about, take pictures at or check in to Queenstown Public House. It’s my “Cheers” if you will. My neighborhood bar where “everybody knows my name.” But literally, I’ve been asked if I work there because people see me there so often!
It’s a gem and I’m a creature of habit. What can I say? I find something I love, I stick with it.
One of the things that keeps me coming back time and time again is their Prosecco Mint Sangria. It’s amazing. So amazing that I decided to re-create it at home last weekend and share my version with you all!
Fresh strawberries and lemon are combined in this delicious muffin recipe that’s easy to make for breakfast or brunch in only 35 minutes!
Before leaving on my Summer Adventure in May, my wonderful Mom purchased me a stoneware muffin pan at a Pampered Chef party she attended in Oklahoma.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use my new amazing kitchen gadget before I had to pack it into storage for the summer. I knew when I finally got settled in my new home in San Diego I wanted to bust that baby out and put it to work.
I decided to combine two of my favorite sweet and tart flavors into a muffin and thus the Lemon Berry Muffin was born. I ate a couple myself and delivered the rest to my dear friends in San Diego who let me borrow their hammer drill three times to get shelves, TV’s and art work on the walls (which are mostly composed of cement and metal studs) in my new place!
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes
Ingredients (makes 9 muffins)
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
2 lemons (juice and zest)
1/2 cup strawberries (sliced)
Start by combining the flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl.
Next combine the butter, sugar, milk and eggs, then add in the flour mixture.
Combine well then add the lemon juice, zest and strawberries.
Fold all the ingredients together then spoon into the muffin pan.
Place in the oven at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Remove when golden and cooked through.
The great thing about the stoneware is that the muffins cook evenly from top to bottom and slide out easily with no muffin liners needed.
These are easy to make for breakfast any day of the week!
Forget traditional blueberry muffins, there’s a new berry muffin in town 🙂
