The weather is getting really warm out there; I can’t believe we were all complaining about the unending cold just less than a month ago. I guess we should remember to be careful what we wish for. Now that the sunshine and warmth has arrived, it’s time to move dinner outside in the evenings, so that we can enjoy every last moment of extended daylight.
This Sparkling Cojito featured on The Kitchn, looks like a great cocktail to enjoy on a hot and humid day.
I’m ready to bake up a batch of these Pimento Cheese Cracker Crisps from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody. I’m just trying to find a way to make them look a little cuter, because snacks should always be cute.
Henrietta, the turkey, is going to love eating out of this Large Beaded Ramekin from Target Home. There’s something so very special about sharing the dinner table with a wild turkey.
Who wouldn’t want to gobble up these Strawberry Lemonade Sandwich Cookies from foodlikecake? I for one am excited to finally see a “lemonade recipe” that doesn’t call for powdered lemonade!
Burning a small amount of sage in your charcoal grill or fire pit will help keep mosquitoes away from you and your guests.

Now that the warm weather has arrived, it’s important to stay cool in style. I’m head over heels about this Hobnail Pitcher from Anthropologie.

Ramp season is coming to a close, but perhaps I could substitute spring onions in Local Kitchen’s Candied Ramp & Fennel Jam.
Setting a pretty table helps to make any picnic or gathering special. I think this Dena Home Provence Melamine Collection Dinnerware, available at Bed Bath & Beyond, is as beautiful as it is durable.
The Seaside Baker’s Avocado Potato Salad is the perfect summer salad to serve alongside any grilled meat.
After I harvest my next batch of rhubarb, I’m going to mix up a huge pitcher of Good Life Eats’ Sparkling Rhubarb Raspberry Lemonade.
I know this is just dreaming, wishing, wanting, or desiring, but how amazing would it be to enjoy a picnic on this Inverness Picnic Table from NapaStyle?
