Pink Drink DIY

Pink Drink 3

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this “Pink Drink” all over social media: A light pink beverage in a Starbucks cup with strawberries floating around with ice. So what’s it actually made of? It’s comprised of Starbuck’s Strawberry Acai Refresher, which is normally mixed with water, that is combined with coconut milk instead, poured over ice and topped with freeze dried strawberries. Delicious! Some even mix it with blackberries to create a “Purple Drink”…Lil Wayne would be so proud.

Summer in Arizona is a blessing and a curse. It’s hot and sunny 95% of the year and it practically never snows. But when the temperatures get as high as 120 degrees and your face seems to melt off on your walk from the car, you don’t even want to go outside!


Watermelon-Arugula Salad

Summer is here and the only thing on everyone’s mind is the pool and cook outs! Nothing comes to mind like a salad when you want to keep your body in shape for summer.




Slate. Charcoal. Smoky.

I know what you’re thinking…Why didn’t I call this color series “Fifty Shades of Grey?” Well for starters, everybody and their momma seems to use that term ever since that book and movie came out, so it just seemed too cliché to use. Also, Nobody wears 50 shades of grey at once nor am I wearing 50 shades in this post.

This is one of my favorite shrimp recipes to make and it’s always a big hit! With only a few simple ingredients, this shrimp packs a lot of unexpected flavor that will make you keep going back for more until they’re gone!


Scallop Pappardelle Alfredo

Mmmmm Pasta! Alfredo sauce is always a go-to when it comes to great pasta sauce. I paired it with the wider pappardelle pasta made with whole wheat as opposed to the classic fettuccini noodle, but this recipe can be used with any kind of pasta your little heart desires. It is sure to be a hit!


Shrimp Ceviche

Ceviche is such a classic recipe combining juice, vegetables, and seafood for a perfectly healthy dish! The best part? This ceviche is even better as leftovers the next day! Trust me…it’s delicious!


Layered Jell-O Shots with Drunken Gummy Bears


Jell-O shots are delicious when they’re mixed with just enough flavor to mask the alcohol that they contain, but eating them seems to be the most difficult part. Most Jell-O Shots are made in plastic shot glasses that require a toothpick to separate it completely from the cup. With this recipe, Jell-O Shots can be easily eaten like an orange slice. No toothpick required!
