This s’mores dip is super easy to make and no campfire necessary!
And when all else fails, make a festive Charcuterie board! Aldi’s is my fave spot to get all your charcuterie board fixings.
This popcorn was a hit too! I melted some white chocolate, drizzled over popcorn and sprinkled in red, white and blue M&M’s.
Hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day Weekend!

I had my first spicy margarita recently. If you know me, I don’t like spicy things. But ever since I’ve had that spicy marg, I was hooked and I’ve been wanting to create my own. Fresh watermelon, limes and jalapenos makes this drink soooo refreshing and the perfect contrast of heat and coolness. Scroll down below for my Spicy watermelon margarita recipe.
Spicy Watermelon Margarita
- 1/2 cup watermelon fresh watermelon juice
- 1 lime fresh squeezed juice of lime
- 1 shot blanco tequila (I prefer Casa Amigos)
- 1 jalapeno cut into slices
- 1 tsp agave or simple syrup
- salt to rim your glass
Using an immersion blender or regular blender, blend your watermelon until juiced.
In a cocktail shaker, add ice, watermelon juice, lime juice, tequila, agave.
Add a few slices of jalapeno, depending on how spicy you want it.
Rim your glass with salt (or sugar if you prefer). I think salt works better for this one.
Pour your cocktail mixture into glass.
Add a few jalapeno slices on top and garnish with a slice of watermelon.
Tip: Take one of your jalapeno slices and rub around the rim of your glass for the perfect kick with each sip 🙂

This lilac lemonade very quickly became a favorite among my Instagram friends (if you don’t follow me on IG click here!) so I thought it deserved a permanent spot on the blog. Who knew lilacs were edible? If you love the smell of these beautiful purple flowers, try adding a few sprigs into your lemonade. It’s just the right amount of lilac.
- 5 lemons
- 2-3 sprigs of lilac Use more for a stronger floral flavor
- 1 cup granulated sugar Use more to make sweeter (can also use simple syrup)
- 5-6 cups water enough to fill your pitcher
Fill a pitcher with ice
Squeeze the juice of your lemons into the pitcher and add your wedges
Fill with cold water
Add your granulated sugar or simple syrup to sweeten
Put in your sprigs of lilac and stir
Let sit for 5-6 hours or longer for a stronger flavor
You can remove the lilacs prior to serving (you may need to strain) or leave in as a garnish.
