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

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUBBA burger. All opinions are 100% mine.

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 with Turkey burger recipe that’s going to be on non-stop rotation at our house this summer: a grilled Greek turkey burger served on warm pitas with all the toppings. 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.

I’m excited to be partnering with BUBBA burger on a tasty burger recipe series (check out the burger bar I made last month!) and we’re continuing our collaboration with a spring inspired burger recipe. Burgers get all the hype as a summer dish, but I have been thinking about how to bring in seasonal, spring flavors to my burger repertoire as the warm weather encourages me to break out the grill more often! This dish, a Swiss and leek burger, is my official burger of spring! read more

This Rhubarb Jalapeno Margarita is my ideal cocktail for those first warm summer nights, with sweet and jammy notes from the rhubarb, balanced with the tart lime citrus and just a kick of spice from the jalapeno that I add to the cocktail shaker. It’s a delightful combination, and one that I’ll be making on repeat all season long! Get the recipe for the Rhubarb Jalapeno Margarita below! read more

The inspiration for this Chamomile-infused take on the classic Bee’s Knees cocktail was the chamomile flower – the cheery little blooms remind me of my wedding bouquet and a sure sign of spring. Instead of making the drink with a purely honey-based syrup, I infused it with chamomile tea bags, adding an herbal note to the clean, refreshing drink! Get the recipe below: read more

We have become a pizza-crazed household since our Ooni Koda 16 Pizza Oven was delivered! For the past few months I’ve been testing different pizza dough recipes, experimenting with toppings, and dishing out dozens of different kinds of pizzas for my family to taste-test. We’ve been perfecting a classic margarita pizza recipe. I’ve served pizza for breakfast, topped with thin sliced potatoes, eggs and sausage. I’ve even been using our pizza-experiments to clean out the fridge and use up leftovers as toppings. Along the way I’ve been collecting questions from followers about the Ooni Pizza Oven, and I’m eager to answer them all in one place! Sharing all the Ooni Pizza Oven FAQs below, and starting you off with this simple review: the Ooni Pizza Oven is FUN. I love the communal cooking experience, bringing food and family and conversation together as we make endless combinations of new and delicious pizzas. Ooni Koda 16 Gas Powered Pizza Oven Review and Dough Recipes read more

Meals that make great leftovers are my favorite. I often go to the gym in the evening, so I make a recipe the night before that can double as leftovers. When I get home, all I need to do is reheat them and dinner is on the table! This dish, a Stuffed Shell and Meatball Bake, is a perfect meal for those easy-to-reheat leftovers. I prep the stuffed shells, cook the meatballs in an oven-safe pan, and then layer them all in together with marinara sauce and some extra cheese for a bubbly, savory, family-approved dish. Get the full recipe below!

Mixing up another one of my #DomestikateHappyHour cocktails to kick off the weekend! This raspberry lime vodka soda takes inspiration from my favorite raspberry seltzer at Flour Bakery in Boston. I had it recently and was like, dang, this would make a great cocktail. Prep the raspberry syrup ahead of time and chill it down before mixing it with vodka, soda and a squeeze of lime! (And because I know you’ll ask, the vanilla-infused sugar in the syrup is an important flavor, it gives it a really unique, robust flavor – you can buy it here). Scroll down for the recipe. read more
