Tart and fruity, bright and boozy, these tequila, lime, & watermelon popsicles are the perfect late-summer treat!

Freeze a taste of summer that can be enjoyed all year round. You only need 4 ingredients to make these boozy frozen treats, talk about easy peasy!

Overhead, Tequila Watermelon Popsicles arranged randomly on crushed ice, with slices of watermelon and lime.

Sometimes, you find yourself with way too much watermelon.

Seriously. We’re just two people. Do you really expect us to eat an entire watermelon all by ourselves?

We’ve been able to pick and choose the cantaloupe-sized melons from our CSA most of the summer, which, although they always made fun of us and our mini melons, were really the perfect size for two.

And then… the little melons turned into bigger melons and then even bigger melons the week after that. And, well, I wasn’t NOT going to take a watermelon just because it was a little on the big side.

We ended up with two big melons, just sitting there, taunting us.

Time for action.

Sweet, soft, and nicely spiced, these easy cinnamon apples taste like the inside of a warm apple pie. But unlike a pie, which requires hours of chilling and baking and cooling, this cinnamon apples recipe is ready in under 30 minutes. I love its simplicity. Its lack of crust, batter, or crumble topping allows it to be just as at home at breakfast as it is at dessert. It also means that this recipe is 100% about the apples. If you have a craving for cozy, apple-y fall flavor, there’s no easier or more satisfying way to indulge it than […]

These chewy peanut butter cookies are sweetened with honey for what just might be the most perfect after-school snack ever!

5 peanut butter cookies stacked on a white plate. A bite has been taken from the top cookie.

There’s just something about peanut butter that makes you think about back-to-school season, right?

I know the majority of schools are nut-free these days, but I still think about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as the quintessential childhood sack lunch. 

Since peanut butter sandwiches aren’t safe to send to school, I make peanut butter treats for an after-school snack instead. 

Peanut butter and jelly bars? Yes! Peanut butter oatmeal bars? Yes! Honey peanut butter cookies? Yes, yes, and YES!

Live your most colorful life with these soft and chewy sugar cookies studded with vibrantly colored milk chocolate M&Ms candies!

The perfect sugar cookie is soft and chewy in the center and crispy around the edges, with notes of sea salt and vanilla and a delicate crunch from the granulated sugar coating. With the addition of colorful candy coated milk chocolate pieces peppered throughout, it might just be the cookie recipe you’ve been craving.

Wire rack with rows of M&M Sugar Cookies, scattered multi-colored M&Ms candies scattered around.

When I think of M&M cookies, I envision the giant ones you’d find in a bakery: pale blonde in color with a lightly ruffled, crackly tops and studded with colorful candy coated chocolate pieces.

Maybe I have a skewed impression of things, as most recipes for M&M cookies online seem to be more of a chocolate chip cookie-like base, just with M&Ms instead of chocolate chips.

While chocolate chip cookies and sugar cookies are somewhat similar, they have notably different flavor profiles (a bit of brown sugar makes a huge difference). So if you’re looking for something that resembles a chocolate chip cookie with M&Ms, you best look elsewhere (although I’ve got lots of other cookie recipes that are worth checking out before you go!)

These cookies, on the other hand, are true sugar cookies: pale blonde and vanilla forward, with ample sea salt to cut the sweetness and enhance the buttery flavor, and rolled in sugar for a delicately crunch and sparkly finish. Add in the colorful candy coated milk chocolate pieces and you have yourself a winner.
