Salads can get pretty boring, pretty fast. I love to throw different combos together to keep my taste buds happy😄 So one night while staring into my fridge I started pulling whatever I had out and putting in a bowl to come up with this super refreshing summer salad!
The greener leaves are the most vitamin rich, and have the best benefits, I’m not a huge kale fan so I tend to add spinach to most salads, this time I also used romaine to give it since nice refreshing crunch, also adds bulk.
I added 2 fruits to this summer salad, juicey peaches, and blackberries (this combo was so amazing)! For the cheese I only had string cheese, pepper jack string cheese! So I said what heck – chopped it up threw it in and surprisingly this added an delicious kick to it! – I’m a huge fan of spicey 🔥
Topped it off with some light ranch dressing. Yummmm.This was so good I made it two days in a row and I almost never eat salad two days in a row😉… That right there tells you how much I loved this salad!
Delicious blackberry banana icecream recipe 🍧
This is the most simple icecream recipe to make! What’s not to love about this great summer treat?! – it’s easy, healthy, and extremely tasty!
To make this blackberry banana icecream I just combined 2 frozen bananas **(I always freeze my over ripe bananas, just peel them and stick in a freezer bag), 1/4 C blackberries, and 2 T non fat milk. Blend up all ingredients and enjoy this delicious treat 😊
I’m very excited to share my first Guest post from: christinaawritess.wordpress.com If you love this as much as I do you should check out her blog, she has great inspirational posts about staying positive!
It’s Up to You
“Happiness often sneaks in through a door you didn’t know you left open.” – John Barrymore
Happiness is completely up to us. It’s our choice to think positively, act positively, and live with happiness. I offer a lot of advice and ways to do this, but I don’t have all the answers. It’s also not my job to tell you how to live a beautiful life. I’m here to write about what matters to me and the things that make my life beautiful in the hopes of affecting others.
My positivity started from another person’s influence. A simple blog on Tumblr that was filled with positive messages and how great life is got me in a positive mindset. Something clicked. Something was right.
I knew that no matter how difficult things got, there was always a way to turn a situation around. Sometimes it is going to be more difficult than other times to see this, but we have to be willing to let happiness in. It’s not something that can be forced, but rather something that can be learned.
There are so many different things that bring joy and positivity in our lives. There are probably things that could make my life even better than it is right now and I just haven’t discovered them yet. The important thing to remember is that I’m going to learn what those things are, and you bet I’m going to share them with you! Life is an incredible journey and we have to stay positive even through challenging times. We have to keep the door open for positivity.

Easy playdough recipe-
Also I think this is the best recipe that I have come across. I’ve tried many DIY playdough recipes in the past but this one is the best because it molds like store bought playdough and even keeps good for over 4 months!!
The other best part is that it’s super simple to make, also cheap. I’m sure you have all these items in your cupboards right now. One other great thing abot this playdough recipe is non-toxic, which is great because those little ones always wind up eating it.
1 C flour
1 T vegetable oil
1/4 C salt
1 t cream of tartar
1 c water
5 drops food coloring
Combine all ingredients in saucepan, mix together until smooth, THEN heat until it because thicker continuously stirring.
Once it is all one big clump remove from heat, knead it a bit, and there you have the best playdough!
Now let the kiddos dig in and have some fun😀
P.S. I love these playdough toys I bought many years ago and my kids still play with them!
