What I'm Watching

Gortimer Gibbon's Life On Normal Street via Amazon Prime // This kids show has been a lot of fun for the whole family to enjoy together!

Life With Elizabeth via Pop Flix // Betty White was a HOOT when she was young! I love her mannerisms.

Mr. and Mrs. Murder via Acorn TV // My Mom discovered this one and I'm so glad she did. This is an Australian show about a couple who work as "the cleaners" who come in to clean up gruesome crimes and usually end up helping to solve the case. I really love watching them interact with one another!

In the Kitchen

At the beginning of the month, I adapted this oreo frosting recipe  which inspired my sister's 17th birthday cake.

We've been grilling hot dogs, hamburgers, and steaks. We're definitely switching over to our favorite "it's wayyyy to hot outside for me to even be hungry right now" foods!

I attempted to make potato salad using a recipe I found in the latest Country Living. It needs work! Do you have any tips?

On Thursday night I whipped together a quarter batch of this toasted marshmallow syrup for my iced coffees. I had a latte with it yesterday and I think it worked! I want to do a blind taste test with a latte from my favorite coffee shop.

Last night we pulled out grape leaves and pita bread from the freezer and I made a hummus to go along with it. TIP: If you ever have an excess of leftovers, pop some of them into the freezer and they will be SURE to save the day next time  you're short on time or initiative!

What I'm Reading

I'm currently finishing up my May Stack and getting a head start on some review copies I'll be posting about soon.

I'm especially enjoying "From Good to Grace" and Melody Carlson's latest release.

I've been slacking in my Bible reading. That really needs to change.

What are you into?

Have you tried any new recipes lately?

I'm linking up with Leigh!


  1. I'm loving this post. You're staying busy and having fun!

  2. That oreo frosting! YUM! My husband would go crazy for that! I have to make it.

  3. By grape leaves, I'm assuming you mean stuffed grape leaves (dolmah)? I would never have thought of freezing them, they're one of our favourite take out treats and I've always been little intimidated to make them by myself but now I could and freeze the extra. Yum!

  4. I've never tried to make potato salad so I don't have any tips for you! But that oreo frosting sounds really good :) Happy June!

  5. I just remembered I was going to e-mail you my Mom's potato salad recipe, and totally forgot (sorry!!) I will get on that right away! That oreo frosting looks amazing!

  6. My favorite potato salad is my mom's! It's not a traditional potato salad, but it is SO good and by far my favorite! https://thisitalianfamily.wordpress.com/2012/03/20/loaded-baked-potato-salad/


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
