Now that we are halfway through September, I am so ready for the cooler weather. We are just finishing up our second summer in Phoenix, and I still can’t get used to the extreme heat. It’s seriously brutal!

Walking through the grocery store on Sunday, I could tell that I was not the only one excited for fall. From pumpkin flavored everything to Halloween and Thanksgiving decorations, fall fever has definitely hit!

My shopping trip left me craving one of my favorite cool weather drinks. Nothing beats a hot Chai Tea Latte on a chilly day. However, since it’s still 100 + degrees outside, a hot drink didn’t sound all that appealing. So I experimented a bit, and came up with this frozen Chai tea latte recipe.

Make Money Blogging: How to Get Hired By Brands

make money blogging: learn how to get hired by brands

I have finally gotten to the point where I can confidently say that my blog is successful. This was not always the case. I have been blogging for seven years and for much of that time I let my “pageview number” dictate the worth of my blog. Now I understand how inaccurate and defeating that belief was.

Today, my focus is completely different. My goal is to write posts that are valuable to my readers as well as the brands that hire me. I am focused on creating the best content I can. And you know what? Brands love this! They want their products to be represented by passionate and creative bloggers.

Since I have stopped obsessing over my traffic, not only do I have a more engaged and authentic audience, but I get paid very well for my blogging efforts. I say this, not to brag, but to encourage bloggers who have a smaller readership to see the value they can offer. Your numbers truly do not measure the value you offer your readers or brands.

The Best (and Easiest) Goulash Recipe


the best goulash recipe

Looking for a quick, delicious meal that everyone will love? This goulash recipe is the answer. With rich, flavorful pasta sauce, a splash of red wine, and fresh mozzarella, this easy one-pot dinner is sure to be requested time after time.

I have turned to this recipe often this past couple of months. Ella has become quite the picky eater recently and this is the one meal she never passes up!

It’s also a perfect recipe to make together as a family. Even though Ella is only three, she loves cooking with her mama. And of course, I love it too! Dressed in her apron, standing on her stool by my side, she is the most adorable little chef. Learning to cook is one family tradition, I am excited to pass on to her.

Apple Oatmeal Pancake Recipe

Saturday mornings are for sleeping in and pancakes. This has been a tradition in our house for longer then I can remember. Now that school is back in session, our Saturday morning ritual is something we look forward to all week! It’s a chance to relax and reconnect over a yummy meal. Last weekend, however, we switched things up a bit. I swapped my go-to pancake recipe for the apple oatmeal pancakes shown above. I added oats which are rich in dietary fiber and can help reduce cholesterol. To keep things healthy, I skipped the syrup and topped our pancakes with baked Granny Smith apples – so good!

My husband loves ice cream cake. Every year he requests this sweet treat for his birthday, and I am happy to oblige. I must say though, finding a good ice cream cake is a hard and often disappointing errand. They just never taste as good as they look!

Fortunately, I won’t have to worry about that next year. Instead of going from shop to shop in search of the perfect birthday cake, I am making it at home. Before last weekend, I had never attempted this daunting task but something has changed. You want to know what it is? The Curious Creamery just came out with an Ice Cream Cake Mix and it’s amazing!
