Today actually marks the first day after National Ice Cream Month. Typical me, I’m running a little behind, but it’s totally worth the wait.

Warm Zucchini “Pasta” Salad

It’s that time of year when I have so much zucchini I just don’t know what to do with it all. If your garden is in a similar giving mood try this veggie-loaded pasta salad.

London Calling: Pimm’s Cup

I am loving these cocktails as we roll into summer; it’s perfect for a round of cricket, croquet or oh, bloody hell…even watching Nascar. The only problem with this refreshing cocktail is that it’s hard to stop at just one.
