Baked Minted Cherry Tomatoes

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

It's about that time to finally get out into the garden and pick that produce you've been growing all season long. I've put a lot of work into my garden this year, and have to admit that I am a little miffed since none of it seems near ready for picking yet, but my mom planted hers later than mine and is already enjoying the fruits of her labor. I am hoping that when we get back from Canada this weekend, I'll be pleasantly surprised that it magically sprouted a bountiful harvest. A girl can always dream, right?

I doubled up on my cherry tomato plants this year because they are my favorite veggie. Or, have we decided they are a fruit? I'll grab handfuls of them throughout the day to snack on because they are just so darn good! Like I said, mine aren't ready to be plucked from the vines yet, so I've been stocking up on large containers when they go on sale at the market. While I usually eat them cold out of the refrigerator, I wanted to try them warmed up for lunch yesterday and ended up making this Baked Minted Cherry Tomatoes recipe from Golden Blossom Honey. 

Baked Cherry Tomatoes

I love that most of the ingredients can be plucked fresh out of the garden, for a healthy and delicious lunch, side dish, or snack. 

Ingredients
4 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup fresh mint or 2 teaspoons dried mint
2 pints cherry tomatoes
4 scallions, thinly sliced
salt and pepper to taste

Three Bean with Bacon Bake

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Even though August is right around the corner, there is still plenty of summertime left, and I'll hold on to the season for as long as possible. We finally wrapped up painting our deck last week, and it's been fabulous getting to use it now, just enjoying the fruits of our labor. We eat most of our meals outside (one of my favorite perks of summer!), and BBQ food is one of our main staples this time of year. I usually stick with my grandma's baked bean recipe since it's a family favorite, but since I am really, really loving the new Golden Blossom Honey Mustard, I thought I would try switching it up with this Three Bean with Bacon Bake recipe recently. 


A little tangy, a little sweet, a little savory made for one surprisingly great twist on an old classic! 

Ingredients
4 thick-cut slices of bacon
1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY MUSTARD
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup water
1 (15-ounce) can Great Northern or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Frozen Fruit Yogurt

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Last week I told you that Golden Blossom Honey has added some new products to their lineup, and I introduced you to their Honey Mustard. This week is all about their Raw Honey! I love using the raw honey because it offers amazing benefits over its processed counterparts. Golden Blossom's Raw Honey is delicious, spreadable, 100% Pure U.S. Honey!



One of my summer bucket list items was to make homemade ice cream with the girls. Jason and I had thought about buying an ice cream machine because we spend an obscene amount of money going out for the tasty treat, it would probably be wise just to invest in one, right? I haven't had much time to look into what machine would be best for our family yet, but I did have the opportunity to make my own Frozen Fruit Yogurt without a machine last week, and I was pretty psyched at how easy it was to make on my own!

Frozen Fruit Yogurt

Make this with pineapple or mango for a refreshing summertime treat. I think I'd also like to try it with strawberry too, because I am really digging a strawberry mint combination right now.

Ingredients
Mango:
32 ounces plain yogurt
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 cup mango juice or nectar

Pineapple Mint:
32 ounces plain yogurt
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
zest of one large lemon

Mom Knows Best! #LiveWithoutLeaks



I think a lot of women have that moment when they realize that they've become their mother. Ever since I have become a mother myself, I find myself realizing that more and more. And the irritating thing is, my own mother laughs and laughs at me for it when I complain to her about life's little injustices.

"Mom, the girls won't clean their rooms!"
Mom: "YOU never cleaned YOUR room!"

"Mom, the girls are costing me so much money."
Mom: "Why do you think I always said money doesn't grow on trees?"

"Mom! I just found a gray hair.
Mom: "Hahahahaha! Remember making fun of my gray hairs?"

Trying to get her to take my side is like pulling teeth some days. But, mom also knows when my little rants deserve her full, serious attention. After I gave birth, I started to experience LBL (light bladder leakage), something I regrettably teased her for when I was a youngster. Mom could have turned the tables on me, but instead, she comforted me by assuring me that every little sneeze, cough, or squat wasn't the end of the world. She recommended that I stock up on Poise® so I could live my life without fear of leaks.

Poise Liners

Living with LBL doesn't have to control your life, thanks to Poise®. I keep a steady supply of Poise® Liners at home, tucked into my purse, and in my gym bag so I can go about my day confident I won't run into an embarrassing leakage situation. What I love about the Poise® liners is that they are incredibly thin, so even when I am wearing my tightest workout pants, nothing will show through. These liners are super discreet!

Poise Liners

And, because mom knows best, teaching me that money does not grow on trees, I use my club card to get the best deals on Poise® Liners at Sam's Club.

Poise Liners

With my Sam's Club Membership, I save $4 on the value pack over what I would spend at any other retailer. And, I can save time by utilizing the Sam's Club Subscription Services. I can add Poise® to my subscription list, set my schedule on how often I need the product, then have it delivered right to my door. With regular deliveries, I don't worry about running out of the products I use most. Easy like Sunday morning!

Don't let a little LBL slow you down! Listen to my mama and head to Sam's Club to stock up on Poise® today.

Wordless Wednesday ~ Soo Locks









Not quite wordless ;) Last month we took a family trip to the upper peninsula of Northern Michigan and made a little detour to Sault Ste. Marie so the girls could see the cargo ships passing through Soo Locks. I admit, I was bored out of my mind watching the sloooow arrival of the boats, but Jason and the girls thought it was quite interesting.


The bridge in the background takes you right to the US/Canadian border, and the girls were itching for a trip over it. They'll get their wish at the end of the month when we head that way for one last summer hurrah before it's time to head back to school.

Do you enjoy watching boats on the water?
