Fresh Avocado and Black Bean Salsa

This post was sponsored by ALDI as part of Influencer Activation for Influence Central.


Fresh breeze. Fresh garden vegetables. The fresh smell of the outdoors. When I think about summer, fresh is the first thing comes to mind.

After the sprinkles of spring, everything seems so fresh when summer finally arrives. I am a summer girl through and through!

One of my very favorite things about summer is all the fresh produce that comes into season here in California. You know what that means when everything tasty is in season. It’s also available at really great prices!

Quick Sugar Cookie Recipe

It’s a fun thing for the kids too! If I have the time and patience I like to set up a pizza bar, gather the family together, and we all make our own mini pies. It’s fun for the kids but it is a nice way to make sure everyone is happy with what’s on their plate. My hubby and I tend to go with a more “grown up” taste when compared to the normal cheese or cheese and pepperoni that the kids like. Everyone wins! Continue Reading →
