In my family, we love spicy foods.  We use hot sauces on different foods such as hot dogs, hamburgers, even scrambled eggs! You know what is great, though? Using it as an ingredient in a recipe! This is why I love Texas Pete. Texas Pete is great as a condiment, but have you ever tried Texas Pete Hot Sauce in a recipe? Maybe its something you haven't considered, but totally should. It makes a great ingredient for a variety of recipes. It spices things up; gives it a little bit of a kick, and a lot of flavor! read more

I got a milk tea {with black tea} with added coconut flavor, and let me tell you-it was delicious! read more

Summer vacation is here, and we have been quite busy! There are lots of things to do and places to go. However, when it is pouring rain outside, what do you do? Well, I have come up with a list of fun ideas to do at home with your kids. Some of these you may have done, and some may be new to you, but they are all fun! Here goes!

1) Camp out! Grab your sleeping bags and do some indoor camping. Pretend you have a campfire and are “roasting” marshmallows. Maybe watch a fun movie while camping out! πŸ˜‰ read more

Lunch @ Dave's Famous BBQ {we love it!}

Jace, the girls, and I went to Dave’s Famous BBQ this past weekend, and we really enjoyed it, as usual. When we were done with our lunch, we ordered 2 desserts for us all to share. A banana pudding and pecan pie. Now when we go to Dave’s we don’t often order dessert. Not because it isn’t delicious, but because their food is so good and filling! We are usually too stuffed to have dessert. This day though, I really wanted something sweet. πŸ˜‰
