Iced Coffee Milkshakes

Summer time is so busy for my family, that I’m usually in need of a pick-me-up in the early afternoon. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but I am in love with these Iced Coffee Milkshakes.

They are the perfect summer drink, and taste so good. If you don’t usually enjoy the taste of coffee, you’ll definitely love these.

DIY Shadow Puppet Theater

Summer in Texas brings lots of things: Excruciating heat, days at the lake, and, sometimes, severe weather. Sitting inside a closet with a two-year-old waiting out the tornado sirens is not fun for anyone. Unless you’re prepared! That’s why we keep this DIY Shadow Puppet Theater in our emergency kit.

Add a flashlight and some extra sets of Duracell batteries, and you’re set for some entertaining fun while you wait out the storm!

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips

Fruit Salsa

My family goes through fruit like Pooh goes through honey. We eat it all the time. I wanted a way to serve it this summer that would be tasty but make it go a bit further, so I made this Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Sugar Chips. The chips are so yummy that I could snack on those alone.

This recipe would be the perfect dish to bring to a summer barbecue — it’s so light and fresh and every time I’ve taken it to a dinner, it gets gobbled up!
