The perfect finger-food-for-any-occasion! Fouth-of-July, S'mores, indoor s'mores, quick, easy, Golden Graham treat bars,

Guys, I make this crack cocaine treat at least once a month! The funny thing is, is that every time I make it I hardly get any because people circle like vultures until it is gone! No seriously! I have resorted to grabbing a big ball of it, then I lock myself in the bathroom so no one can steal it from me! (I know I am disgusting…..and smart.)

Sloppy Joe Sliders-with a kick

Who’s so excited that it’s finally summer?!  (Me! Me! Me!) We have been loving the laid back feeling of summer and have slept in on a few different occasions after long days at the pool in the sun. It’s heaven! And each day of summer that passes I get excited for one of my FAVORITE HOLIDAYS that’s coming up…..The 4th of July.

And you better believe if I’m eating something that requires a condiment I will be putting mustard on it.
