Spring is in full swing, and before we know it, summer will be right around the corner. It’s about time to start planning summer travel—long weekends, day trips, and weeklong ventures. If you’re looking for a fun and easy long weekend trip—or even a quick overnight stop on a longer journey—you’ll love a visit to Chattanooga, Tennessee.
This was originally going to be my Friday Five post for March. But then I got sick and totally lost my voice, and got off-schedule. So it’s arriving a few days later, now that I’m (mostly) recovered and back to the blog.
Happy Spring, y’all! It’s finally warm and not raining where I live, and I am ready to soak up some sunshine. With warmer weather comes my desire for fresh berries and lighter baking. Breakfast pastries, like muffins, are some of my favorite things to bake this time of year. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite light and easy breakfast recipes: a treat I call Sunday Morning Muffins.
It’s almost picnic and tailgate season! That means I’m going to be making lots of snacks and treats (and sangria, of course) to share with large groups. One of my favorite tailgate treats is sausage balls. I usually end up making two batches: one to share, and one for myself. While I have my go-to, tried and true sausage balls recipe, I decided to kick it up a notch with another favorite Southern snack: pimento cheese.
Okay for real, is it spring yet? It’s rained more in the last month than it hasn’t in Chattanooga, and I’m over it. At least this means the plants and trees will be nice and green this year, and maybe we won’t have to worry about a drought? Anyway, until then, I’ve got another cocktail recipe that will get us in the spring spirit: a Tennessee Meyer Lemonade cocktail.
I may be a little biased, but Chattanooga is one of the prettiest cities I’ve ever lived in. We don’t call it the Scenic City for nothing. With a name like that, you can probably imagine how many beautiful and perfectly Instagrammable photo spots there are in Chattanooga. Just browse through all the #chattanooga hashtags on Instagram, and you’ll see what I mean.
