Theres a new little cafe in my hometown that has popped up called Burnt Lemonade. I actually haven't eaten there yet. I can't even tell you if their lemonade is actually burnt...but the idea of burnt lemonade has stuck in my mind since hearing of this new cafe. Since it's citrus season here in California and all the trees are bursting, my kids and I decided to give it a try. Fresh Lemonade vs Burnt Lemonade I was really REALLY skeptical that they would taste any different at all. We made a . . .

This is the perfect sale for that Christmas cash. Today I wanted to share a few kitchen favorites from the sale that will put a smile on your face and your wallet.

If it's one thing I do, it's bring people meals. I'm one of the first to offer to bring friends a meal after a baby, or surgery, or after a social media post that they're sick or had a miscarriage or husband lost a job or whatever it is, because food is my love language! It's one of the easiest ways I know and love to serve because it comes so naturally to me! One thing that is really so easy to bring to others is smokey spiced pulled pork tacos. I do the pork in my Power Pressure Cooker . . .
Serving through meals and food is one of my favorite ways to help others. It's been one of the most effective ways I personally could serve over the years in many ways.

It can alleviate so many burdens, and EVERYONE needs food. We have been participating in the LDS.org #lighttheworld campaign. My family . . .
Today we are starting a holiday series that I have been wanting to do for literally years. I began pitching the idea of a service series years ago, but the time just never seemed right. A few months ago, we began planning our holiday posts and I decided this was the year! You might remember Des's post from last week with her Almond Poppyseed Bread- we were so lucky to collaborate with the LDS church and introduce their Christmas campaign #Light the World! The timing of our service series was . . .
Holiday Entertaining We recently had the opportunity to assist Megan, from E.Interiors in her collaboration with World Market. Megan is someone I love! She not only has impeccable style and taste but has a generous heart, is smart in business and loving mother & friend. World Market approached her for a holiday entertaining post and she asked if I would be interested in providing food! I couldn't turn her down. Over on her post you can find tips and tricks for entertaining during holiday, . . .
