A barbeque is only as good as its food — make sure yours is the best by having these 10...
I hope you enjoy this holiday and appreciate this day off. Whether you're spending it at the beach, watching fireworks, or firing up that grill, July 4th is a day to celebrate. It's a day to reflect on how we got here and remember the people that made this country so great. It's a day to appreciate our country and everything it has to offer us, whether it be the big things or the little things.
With Memorial Day just around the corner, summer BBQs are a-comin' and with them, beer, hot dogs, potato salad, chips and dip... It's all going to tempt me beyond belief, especially once I have a few cocktails. So in an effort to maintain what I've worked so hard for, I've come up with a BBQ Game Plan.
I have come to the final decision that Thumper was right all along. As soon as spring arrived, he could only think about thumping that big foot of his so all of the animals would hear his mating call. I feel the same way as Thumper. Spring is here and so are my raging hormones. Boys and their forearms crawl out of North Faces and down comforter coats...and I can't get enough.
Looking for something fun and different for this Friday night?
You are only a few hours away from a three day holiday weekend, ladies! Can I get a "what what"?! Memorial Day Weekend is the official kick-off to summer, which means only one thing: it's time to get a bikini wax the inevitable family BBQ.
It's hard to be sure of what to eat these days. Health reports come out with a study against a certain food one day and for it the next. Do I eat the egg yolk or do I stick with the whites? Are pomegranates that good for me? How many more vitamins do I really need to take? It's confusing. And I don't like being confused about food. I just like eating it.
July is here (I know - where the eff did June go??), and I can't help but notice more American-themed fashion/toys/food crowding the retail shelves just about everywhere. At first I was confused (I mean, that red, white, and blue dress is cute, but wasn't Fleet Week a while ago?), then it dawned on me...Independence Day.
Chipotle has become one of those super hip ingredients you find in everything it seems, right up there with pomegranate, and for very good reason: it’s frickin delicious. Smoky and hot, it adds a killer flavor to anything it touches, and this spread is no exception. It’s magical.
The 4th of July. An excuse to drink beer, dress up in festive clothes and eat late-night salty munchies... all day. Sounds like a typical college weekend and it is oh-so-welcomed after 2 months of spending our weekend nights at home with our parents playing Scrabble. But what to wear?
As we all know buying a gift for Dad is nearly impossible as he either seems to have everything or you just have no idea what he would want. This causes most of us to procrastinate on buying him a gift, and then having to scramble at the 11th hour and settle for a gift that is less then mediocre.
Last night I did something that every college senior dreads: I said goodbye to my first friend to graduate. Although I was never super close friends with her, we lived in the dorm together freshman and sophomore years and kept in touch ever since.
This weekend marks the unofficial start of the summer season and that means cool ice cream treats, hot days, hotter boys and less clothing. I figured that in honor of Memorial Day, I'd do a Day-to-Night Style that can easily be worn from a picnic in the park to a night bar-hopping with your buds, all with a few key extras you can store in your beach tote.
Yay for May! The April showers are (or should be) over, and it's time for summer kick in. I can't WAIT to be done with my exams (only one more... and 10 red bulls to go) and on the plane en route to my home.
Labor Day weekend kicks off tomorrow. Yay for a long weekend filled with delicious BBQ! Boo for high gas prices...
