I love cooking during the summer. I have a little more time to not only try new recipes, but there are tons of barbeques and pool parties to try the new recipes at.

1. Berry Swirl Frozen Yogurt Bark

As someone who eats peppermint bark from Thanksgiving to Valentines Day, this was really exciting to me. It's healthy, but still kicks my sweet tooth into place.

2. BLT Pasta Salad

I was a little suspicious of the barbeque and ranch mixture, but after tasting it, I don't regret it for a second. It goes so well with the bacon and tomato.

3. Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

The sweetness of Snickers meets their match with the tanginess of apples in this magnificent dessert. It is so quick to make, because you just chop the Snickers and apples and dump everything else into a bowl, then stir.

4. Mini Chicken Pot Pies

These pot pies are so easy they will make you look like a five-star chef while hosting a dinner party. They are also extremely cheap to make in a big batch then, you can freeze whatever you don't consume and reheat later.

5. 3 Minute Fudge

Fudge is one of the easiest desserts to make and it's great to make when it gets really hot outside because there is no baking or using the stove to it, just microwaving to melt the chocolate.

6. Copycat Wendy's Chili

This chili is so good for those late summer bonfires or to eat while curled up in the air conditioning,

7. Cookies and Cream Brownies

These are so yummy! My brother's girlfriend loves this dessert. I have made them for her a couple times. They have crushed Oreos in them and the extra step takes a minute if you don't want Oreo crumbs all over your kitchen, but it's so worth it in the end.

8. Easy Ranch Burgers

The diner in my hometown makes the best ranch burger. It wasn't until I went to school that I realized that not all burger joints have them, but this recipe is the closest I've ever tasted to Hennings' ranch burger after you add coleslaw on top.

9. Lasagna Roll Ups

It's like lasagna but without having to go to the trouble of the cutting through all the layers of the noodles. Then you have to deal with your cousin ending up with have your noodle pieces and you have all her cheese…it's just a mess. This way you only have to deal with scooping and everyone getting ever servings.

10. Veggie Pizza with Crescent Rolls

Because this pizza does not involve any baking besides the eight minutes it takes to cook the crescent rolls. The cool cream cheese, ranch, and sour cream "sauce" just tastes refreshing and compliments the vegetables wonderfully and is great for hundred-degree days.

These recipes are good whether you are doing your first grown-up dinner party or taking a dish to the church potluck. I hope you have fun making a few of these and everyone else has fun being your guinea pigs!

10 Reasons Moe's Will Always And Forever Be Superior To Chipotle

Welcome to Moe's!
24311
views

With the great debate between which burrito place is the best, here are 10 reasons why Moe's is clearly the better option than Chipotle. *Side note, I do like Chipotle, but Moe's will always be No. 1 in my heart.

1. WELCOME TO MOE'S!

You don't get this kind of hospitality from Chipotle.

2. Their menu is much larger.

Moe's offers burritos, quesadillas, nachos, burrito bowls, tacos, salads, and they all have cool names! Chipotle just has burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads. BORING.

3. They offer a variety of toppings.


Moe's offers over 20 fresh ingredients while Chipotle has...barely anything. :/

4. Moe Monday.

$5 BURRITOS!!!!! Seriously no one can beat that.

5. Their prices in general.


At Chipotle it's $6.50 just for a for a burrito alone. Add on chips, guac and a drink and that's roughly $13. At Moe's you can get a burrito, chips, unlimited salsa, and a drink for $8.80. Add on queso and that's only $1.25 more. (But totally worth it!!!) Which brings me to my next case...

6. QUESO!!!!!!!!!!

Queso is bae. That is all.

7. Free chips and a salsa bar!

We don't pay extra here.

8. The atmosphere at Moe's just feels better.

Chipotle's are usually tiny little restaurants that barely have any tables. Every time I go to Chipotle I feel rushed to eat my food because people are usually hovering over you looking for a seat. Moe's is like five times it size and they play good music.

9. Moe's is made with FRESH ingredients.


I'm not even gonna get into the whole Chipotle situation...

10. Overall, Moe's just tastes better than Chipotle.


Sorry 'bout it.

Coffee Drinks You Need To Try If You're Willing To Go Outside Your Comfort Zone

Even if you like your coffee black, I have some drinks you might want to try.

Here are some quick little changes to add to your typical coffee order!

Starting with things to add to a regular old cup of coffee, you could order a cafe au lait. A cafe au lait is half your medium/dark roast coffee with half steamed milk. For the espresso drinks, ask to add a raw sugar in with the espresso. Personally, this is my favorite because it adds a little bit of sweetness, but not much at all. I like a lot of foam with my lattes, so I will order a cappuccino, which are the shots of espresso and more dry foam filled to the top. Keep in mind: you can add any syrup flavor to these drinks.

Most people who go out for coffee stick with the same order; I asked one customer if they would like to try the oat milk with their french vanilla latte.. and get this! He liked it and orders it with oat milk every time! Whether you're dairy-free or not, trying different types of milk in your coffee is fun!

There is typically oat milk, coconut milk and almond milk at coffee shops. Switch out the whole milk for almond milk and it's a whole new taste on the latte! Non-dairy milk is also better for you, especially your skin! Remember that cafe au lait I was talking about earlier? You can make it iced! The barista will take their cold brew concentrate and put it over ice, with your choice of milk poured on top!

Always ask to see what kind of syrups the coffee shop has because most do have more than just vanilla and caramel! My personal favorites are butterscotch and maple! The peppermint mocha is always one of my easy favorites to order, as well. You chai lovers! Add vanilla or blackberry syrup to your typical chai, it's like a whole new drink!

On the coffee stand, there's usually honey and cinnamon. With any drink you order, even tea, honey will make a huge difference in your choice of drink. Next time you go to a coffee shop, look at the syrup flavors, ask questions, and maybe try a new kind of milk! Also remember, just because fall season is coming up and it's getting a little chilly out, doesn't mean you have to stop getting iced coffee.
