Beach Inspired Jute Lantern

Yesterday, I saw some beachy nautical lanterns in the store and thought of making my own version of it. It turned out great and that too, in a fraction of the price that it was selling for..:)  And I'll show you how easy it was to make.

I already had everything I needed. I used an empty pasta sauce bottle, which I cleaned and washed removing the labels and making it sparkling clean and I always have jute rope in my craft stash..:)

Strawberry Scones

I love scones, but didn't know how to make it or never even thought that it will be so easy to make. When I had a big bunch of strawberries from our recent trip to Costco and we still had a lot left even after just eating like that, I thought of making something with it. Then while looking through recipes, came across this Alton Brown's recipe for scones which I thought will be good to add the strawberries to.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

An easy and quick dessert, which everybody loves. I made these for a large crowd and it was gone in minutes..) These will be great as July 4th dessert going with the red-white and blue theme.

Cauliflower cutlets

This is going to become one of my goto appetizer ideas. Everyone enjoyed it when I made it last weekend. I have been seeing lot of dishes these days with shredded cauliflower. Few days back, I even tried cauliflower rice and it was awesome. I will post the recipe for that one soon.

Day at the beach

Even though we live so close to the ocean, we do not get to go to the beach as often as we would like to. But this past weekend was the first trip to the beach this summer and we got to spend some quality relaxing time at the beach...:)  The weather was perfect - the kids played in the water, collected shells and had fun making sand castle.

Individual Fruit Pizza

Summer time, when there are variety of fresh fruits available, I love to incorporate them in the dessert. And this individual fruit pizza is so fun to make and serve. In fact when serving the kids, let them decorate their own pizza..:)
