Homemade Crusty Hamburger Buns

These are the hamburger buns you've been waiting for. 

Since the Easy Crock-Pot Pulled Chicken with Homemade BBQ Sauce I've had a lot of request for these bad boys! 

Crusty deliciousness with a soft and chewy center. 

I used my favorite roll recipe with some adjustments to produce a hamburger bun like I've been buying at the bakery. There's just something about a crusty rustic hamburger bun plus I know every last ingredient that is in these!

The family actually voted these better then the bakery, and that is saying a lot!

Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea

Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea
Strawberry Grapefruit Whiskey Iced Tea came about as a collaborative process between Colt and I. I had suggested to him we should do another iced tea like the Peach Whiskey Iced Tea I shared last summer. As we wandered around the grocery store checking out the produce we settled on Strawberry Grapefruit, two of my favorite combinations when in season.

I usually add the whiskey as I'm serving the cocktails to have a nonalcoholic option available so everyone can enjoy the Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea.

It's perfect for gatherings like Mother's Day brunch, Memorial Day, or a Father's Day BBQ!

I also like to keep a pitcher of the Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea on hand just to enjoy at the end of a warm day on the patio.

Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Crumb Bars Video


If you love lemon like me I know you'll love these Creamy Lemon Cheesecake Crumb Bars. They are the perfect sweet treat for a lemon lover like myself! So we couldn't wait to make the video as promised.

I love taking these to summer barbecues, picnics, and gatherings like Mother's Day and then Father's Day. I'll also keep a pan of these in the freezer, they're incredibly good on a hot day frozen. I let them sit out just enough for the crumb topping to slightly defrost, but the centers still frozen. So, so, so good!
