If you love sprinkles, then today you will be in heaven since we are sharing these Mini Olympic Baked Donuts with colorful sprinkles (everything is more fun with them, right?)  They are just in time for planning a fun treat while we cheer on Team USA!  I'm getting pretty excited to see the opening ceremony and then watching some of my favorite sports.  I can't decide what games I like better summer or winter as each has some great events.  A couple of my favorites for now are beach volleyball and gymnastics.  Go Team USA!

Hot Diggity Dog!  These Buffalo Style Hot Dogs are kicked up a notch with a creamy spicy sauce that takes this American classic to a whole new level!  Super easy, perfect for summer time grilling and topped with good stuff - a bit tangy with the blue cheese and a bit of crunch with the celery.  You'll be the top dog in the house when you serve these to your family :)

Freshness is the name of the game today with this tasty Roasted Golden Beet Salad! With our busy summer I finally had a chance to stop by our local Farmer's Market.  I'm really not an early riser so I usually head over around 10 while the crowd is still going strong but still lots of veggies to choose from.  I love meandering around, taking in all the sights and fresh produce.  I kind of go prepared with a list in my mind and then walk around to scope out for what I'm looking for.  I sometimes stop and buy right away or if I'm not in a hurry, I'll walk the entire market and then go back for my goodies!  It's an experience that I really enjoy and may buy more than what is in my mind :)

Summer time is in full force!  How do you stay cool?  Take a dip?  Stay in your A/C :)  In today's post with 25 Summer Treats to Keep Cool, you'll find a variety of goodies to beat the heat.  We've had some pretty decent weather lately - not too hot, beautiful sunny days, low wind and minimal rain.  I've really enjoyed working in the yard.  In fact, today was the first day I've had all summer to plant some flowers in pots on the deck.   About time since it is already July!  We've just been busy - busy.  But I'm never too busy to have a cool treat...

Triple Berry Crepes

These Triple Berry Crepes are a breeze to make and taste so good!  A perfect way to use fresh berries!

Triple Berry Crepes with Lemon Curd Pin it
There is just something about strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and even blackberries that I can't get enough of - they are so flavorful and pair well with lots of desserts like these Triple Berry Crepes.  All you need to do is clean the fruit, whip up some heavy cream with lemon curd and make the crepes.  If you can make a pancake, then making crepes will be right up your alley, as they are just a thinner version of those.
