I’m excited to be partnering with BUBBA burger on a tasty burger recipe series this summer (check out the other posts here!) and we’re continuing our collaboration today with a super easy, and exceptionally fast summer dinner idea: Grilled Cheeseburger Pizza!I’m all about quick dinners in the summer, after a long day of work and camp and if we’re lucky some beach time, everyone is tired, and we need a meal on the table asap! I turn to the grill so much in the summer for quick meal prep, and a giant bonus if I get to be outside in the cool evening breeze instead of hanging over my stove in a hot kitchen.We always keep some BUBBA burgers on hand in the freezer for quick grilled dinners and I got a lightbulb of inspiration recently to turn the classic grilled cheeseburger into a delightfully delicious cheeseburger pizza for Friday pizza night – made with all the classic cheeseburger toppings!BUBBA burger makes it super convenient to get this dinner on the table fast, from freezer to grill or skillet, they’re ready in about 10 minutes and they come in a variety of options to fit everyone’s food needs – beef, turkey, and even plant-based veggie burgers! I love using my pizza oven to make pizzas, but since I already have the grill on to make quick work of the burgers, I built this recipe so you can make the whole thing on the grill. I start by making the special sauce, combine ketchup, mayo Dijon mustard, pickle juice and the spices into a bowl and mix until it’s well incorporated. Set it in the fridge to chill until you’re ready to serve it. Next, get the grill started and cook your BUBBA burgers. While they’re cooking, you can prep the rest of the toppings – cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles!Once the burgers are cooked, chop them up and add them to your pizza dough and top with cheddar cheese. Add the pizza to the grill and cook until the cheese is melted, and the dough is at your desired doneness, then finish it off with fresh toppings – lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and a drizzle of the special sauce!

One of my all-time favorite summer treats is an ice cold creamsicle pop! My friends at Fancypants Baking Comake an Orange Burst cookie that has all those citrus-y orange and sweet vanilla notes of that classic, nostalgic summer treat. Recently after taking my first bite into the Orange Burst cookie, I got a spark of inspiration for combining the cookies and the creamsicles into an over-the-top sundae that tastes like warm sunny days of my childhood! read more

I’m excited to share the launch of a new collaboration with my friends at Feather + Finn – a limited edition citronella candle collection designed for al fresco summer nights! The candles are handcrafted and poured by a local, woman-owned small business, and they’re made with nontoxic ingredients and eco-friendly 100% recycled glass vessels. They’re the kind of entertaining pieces that I use on my own summer tables, and am so excited for them to be on your patios and in your gardens this season too! We collaborated on a bright, fresh scent of orange blossom and lemongrass citronella, I love how the notes bring out the summery smells of my garden and subtly compliment the food I serve when I’m hosting friends and family. The scent was so delightful, that it inspired an Orange Blossom + Lemongrass Fizz cocktail that I created to match the candles. Shop the patio collection on the Feather + Finn website, and scroll down for the full cocktail recipe – cheers!  read more

Last year we threw an end of school party for Jane and all her classmates to celebrate surviving what could only be described as a wild year – for the parents, the teachers, and the kids! As this school year winds down, we talked about making this a tradition, and inviting classmates over for another after school celebration with some simple, old-school summer fun. I visited my local Christmas Tree Shops to stock up on all my party supplies and wanted to share a few of the fun finds and ways we’re celebrating the kick off of summer. read more

I’ve been making this fresh, easy whipped feta tzatziki dip on repeat recently for friends and family. All it takes is four ingredients: store bought tzatziki, feta cheese, a pinch of fresh parsley and drizzle of olive oil, combined in the food processor for a minute or two until the feta dip is well incorporated and smooth. It pairs so well with crisp fresh veggies for a crudite platter, fluffy pita spears or crunchy pita chips are also a winning combination for dipping, and I’ve even used it as a spread on a Greek-inspired sandwich wrap. The flavors are creamy and tangy and bright, a perfect entertaining dish for the season! Get the full recipe below:

My #domestikatehappyhour series is feeling the summer vibes this week with the most refreshing and simple cocktail! This blueberry vodka lemonade is as easy as pouring an infused blueberry vodka over ice and topping it with fresh lemonade and some delightfully fragrant blueberries and mint leaves. I used Van Gogh blueberry vodka for the recipe – Triple Eight blueberry vodka is another favorite – and bought fresh squeezed lemonade from the grocery store. If you like your drink a little bit less sweet and tart, you can also top it halfway with lemonade and finish the rest of the glass off with unflavored soda water. The result is crisp and refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day!  read more

And the best part, it’s an easy summer dinner that will be on the table in 20 minutes! read more

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a tasty shrub for cocktails, but I was inspired by the beautiful English thyme that’s popping up in my garden and had a moment of motivation to mix something up for a fresh, spring drink. Shrubs – let’s review – are a syrup made of a combination of fruits, aromatics, sugar, and vinegar. Compared to a basic simple syrup, this mixture has a bit of acidity and depth that makes it a really nice way to balance a drink recipe. I used this strawberry and thyme shrub to dress up a bottle of Prosecco, but it would also taste great with a gin and tonic, or in a non-alcholic drink with plain soda water.

After our last trip to Scotland, I did a big Q&A over on my instagram stories about traveling with kids.

Scroll down for my tips about preparing kids for big trips, our favorite kids travel gear, and all the best kids entertainment to bring on planes, road trips and in restaurants.

I have been patiently waiting for our New England spring weather to cooperate so that I can get back into our garden and start planting for the season ahead! If you know one thing about me, it’s that I love bold pops of color, so I am delighted to partner with my friends at Better Homes & Gardens and Endless Summer® to plant some colorful Summer Crush® hydrangeas in my yard this year. read more
