Did you know July is National Picnic Month?
So I have decided to team up with my #SundaySupper Family and Gallo Family Vineyards to bring 20 amazing recipes to enjoy on a picnic! 
I'm so excited to see all the other delicious recipes for fun new ideas! 
On this summer's bucket list our family has decided to try and go to a new park at least once a week to picnic and play.
We've already discovered quite a few hidden gems and new found favorites! 
When we first started this back in May I was expecting the kids to complain since they are a bit older but they all seem to love throwing the football, frisbee, swimming and enjoy whatever deliciousness Colt and I have packed the cooler with.
These Key Lime Cheesecake Crumb Bars happen to be a picnic favorite this year! 
I like to freeze them the night before so they stay ice cold in the cooler while we play at the park! 
They freeze and defrost really well making them a perfect dessert to make ahead of time.
Key Lime Cheesecake Crumb Bars are a favorite on the hottest days of summer straight out of the freezer.
These are a year around favorite in our house but light and refreshing enough for a summer dessert on a really hot day!

For a fun wine pairing with your Key Lime Cheesecake Crumb Bars we love Gallo Family Vineyards Pinot Grigio or Cabernet Sauvignon for a red option.
We love the mini bottles of Gallo Family Vineyards wine for picnicking and are the perfect individual sized portions that fit perfectly inside the cooler!

Welcome!

Hi! My name is Serena and welcome to my site! I'm a wife and mother to 3. A few of my favorite things are cooking, baking, dark chocolate, family game nights, and the ocean. My biggest dislike is lima beans, please don't ask for a recipe... My husband Colt regularly joins me in the kitchen and has become the primary photographer of our site. I hope you'll join us on our fun cooking adventure!
