Asian Cucumber Salad

Looking to change up your side dish at your next summer barbecue? Asian Cucumber Salad is always a hit!  Spicy slightly sweet in a toasted sesame seed oil dressing with just a hint of honey to balance out the vinaigrette. 

It's a year around favorite, but the best when cucumber are farm fresh at the peek of summer. It's a summertime must make and is one of those salads that is best made a few hours ahead.

Asian Cucumber Salad is one of those staple salads we make a lot. It's great as a side dish with grilled steak or chicken.


With the weather starting to heat up outside the simpler the side dishes the better. Asian Cucumber Salad is a staple in our house for just that reason it's simple and delicious! 

You can adjust the red pepper flakes to make it less or more spicy to your liking. 

Raspberry Margaritas

Raspberry Margaritas are a favorite pitcher cocktail perfect for parties from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We made a pitcher of these Raspberry Margaritas way back at Cinco De Mayo, but I think they would be a hit for 4th of July!  

They are an absolute favorite for summertime barbecues, parties or just to enjoy on the back patio to kick off the weekend.

I mean who doesn't love an easy Pitcher Margarita recipe? They are absolutely delicious! 

The best part of these Raspberry Margaritas is they can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Just add ice to the glasses instead of the pitcher when serving.

It's definitely a favorite pitcher cocktail recipe for summer entertaining along with Peach Whiskey Iced Tea, Strawberry Grapefruit Iced Tea, Spiked Blackberry Lemonade, and Slushy Mango Margaritas

Colt's Juicy Burgers are a favorite on the grill! Add cheese for a delicious Cheeseburger from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We call these Colt's Juicy Burgers at home. They're super simple but it's his signature burger.

He always gets asked what he adds to his burgers, so I thought I would finally convince him to share his secrets to a juicy burger. He even made a video to go with the recipe! 

These are a family favorite and it's always requested that Colt makes his signature burgers.

When the weather's not nice enough to grill outside he'll even fry them in the cast iron pan in a little butter, making these a year around favorite.
