Raspberry Lemonade Crinkle Cookies

Crinkle cookies have long been a favorite of so many.  Especially the chocolate version that is oh-so-popular around Christmas.  What is it about those cookies that is so enticing?  Is it the chewy, crackled cookie?  Or is it the white, powdered sugar coating?

Maybe, it's just a combination of all the above.

But why stop with the chocolate?  Right?  Right!

So, by now you know that I'm quite the lover of lemonade.  Pink, yellow, blueberry, the list goes on and on....and on.  But why stop the lemonade love with the drink?  Let's carry that on over to baked goods.

Roasted Beet Hummus

I have long been a fan of hummus.  A deliciously simple dip that's bright and lemony with a healthy amount of garlic. It's also perfect for dunking lightly salted pita chips and assorted veggies.  Oh, it's also sooooo easy to make.

Now, all that's a winning combo in my opinion.

I've played around with a few flavor variations of hummus, the most bold addition to the dip was roasted red pepper, which was awesome,  So when I saw a recipe for roasted beet hummus I was excited, intrigued, and a bit nervous.

First and foremost I was drawn in by the color of the dip.  I mean, it's pink so what's not to love?!?  Then I read about it and learned it got it's intense color from roasted beets.  I've always loved beets but wasn't quite sure how they'd be added to hummus.  But, there's only one way to find out, right?

Pink Starburst Cocktail

If you were to give me a package of Starburst and tell me to pick out my two favorite flavors you would see a pile of pink and red quickly form.  But, if you told me I could only choose one flavor, it would have to be the pink Starburst hands down.

From the first time I tasted Starbursts, pink had my heart.  Not only is it my favorite color, there's just something about that beloved pink candy that tastes so darn good.

Homemade Pink Lemonade

When it comes to lemonade I have a few requirements.  It has to be the perfect balance of sweet, tart and a hint of sourness.  I'm one of those sour-loving people.  I mean, I like to feel it in my jaw and have my cheeks pucker.

I know so of you are quite the opposite, and probably reading the above paragraph you're thinking "that girl is crazy".  But, what can I say, I love my sour stuff.

Old Fashioned Pink Popcorn

Aside from pumpkin spice everything, October also means something else.  Pink.  October, as so many of you know, is breast cancer awareness.  I love the awareness and support that comes about during this month.  Like many people, breast cancer has touched my family and taken someone so very special to me.  I hate it.  I hate cancer of any kind and I love that there are so many people dedicated to finding a cure!

This week our town, along with many others, is gearing up for the annual Race for the Cure.  So, in honor of that amazing event, my blog will be turning pink this week too!  All the recipes making appearances this week will have that beautiful pink hue.

Sweet Sriracha-Glazed Pork Skewers

I know it's officially fall, today actually, but those temps are still warm and it's optimum grilling weather.  Along with the weather still being perfect for firing up the grill, we're right in the heart of tailgate season.  Which is another reason I am so very excited to share this truly amazing recipe for sweet sriracha glazed pork skewers.

I was literally stopped in my tracks when I came across this recipe on Pink-Parsley.  The name alone made me pause, then I saw the pictures of those colorful, grilled skewers of juicy, glazed pork.

Meatball Sub Skewers

One of Spencer's favorite sandwiches is a meatball sub.  3 very simple ingredients piled on a bun makes him oh-so-happy.  Anytime I make meatballs for spaghetti he always requests I make extra to ensure we can put subs on the menu that week.  Which works for me, I can knock 2 meals out with one stone!

So when I was asking him what some of his favorite game day foods were we started chatting and he mentioned something about the infamous meatball sub.  But when you think of game eats, a big sub with a healthy dose of marinara isn't really ideal for a tailgate when you're standing around and holding a plate.
