Raise your hand if you’ve ever owned and used a planner. Raise your hand if you stopped using it after a month or two because it wasn’t working, for whatever reason. My hand just shot up in the air, because that happened to me so many times. In fact, I tried three different planners to find what worked for me, and none of them did.
It’s good to do one of these “life lately” posts every once in a while. It’s easy to get caught up in the hustle of producing “blog-worthy” content that I forget that my random life happenings are just as important! Well, maybe not important, but just as blog-worthy.
As per usual, I’ve been staying pretty busy lately. So, without any further ado, here’s what’s been happening in my life lately, along with lots of things I’ve been loving!
I love good traditional brownies, but adding a nice dark beer to them just kicks those rich, chocolate flavors up a few notches.
Beer brownies might be my new favorite brownies.
I experimented with beer brownies a few times last year. The first batch I tried, I made with a barrel-aged pumpkin ale, which ended up being a really unique flavor combination. The other time I made them with a brown ale, which was nice, but not quite as strong a flavor as I would’ve liked.
Then I tried the Love Supreme milk stout from local brewery Heaven & Ale, and my life changed.
I’m back with another delicious recipe for National Strawberry Month! Check out my Simply Southern Strawberry Jam recipe while you’re here, too!
There is hardly a drink more refreshing on a hot summer day than lemonade (with the exception of sweet tea, of course). It’s a cul-de-sac classic that everyone at any age can enjoy, at almost any occasion, and it’s easy to adjust to other people’s flavor and taste preferences.
I don’t know about y’all, but I could definitely live on macaroni and cheese. It is its own food group in my diet and I am 1000% not ashamed of that.
There’s never a bad time for mac and cheese, if you ask me. Lunch, dinner, mid-afternoon snack…in college, I sometimes even had mac and cheese as a mid-morning snack. There was a cafe in the student center that had some pretty delicious mac and cheese, and I didn’t always want to wait until “real” lunch time to have some.
