Fourth of July weekend is upon us! I can’t wait. I actually have zero plans because I’m currently in Mexico, so I figured I’d probably need to work over the long weekend. I do have one plan, though and that’s to make some bbq chicken OR oven ribs and top them with this cherry bbq sauce.

Next week I’m headed to Mexico for my best friend’s wedding and I can’t wait to lay by the pool, read a book all while drinking a Michelada. In California, what you see pictured is often referred to as a Beergarita but in Mexico it’s a Michelada (well, without the frozen element to it).

I can’t think of many things that I’d rather be doing on a hot summer day than lounging around by a pool. There’s nothing more comforting than sprawling out on a sun-warmed towel after taking a dip, and feeling the sun wick away the droplets of water with its warm rays. But between the action and the summer heat, it doesn’t take long before I get thirsty and this Gin Rickey is my go-to pool-side drink.

This Strawberries and Cream Milkshakes recipe is a simple Summer beverage that you can make quickly.

In the summer (or near summer), I always buy a flat of strawberries at the farmer’s market. They’re too pretty and fragrant not to! I recently was working my way through strawberries and realized I haven’t had a milkshake in far too long. I used to make them every weekend in the summer growing up. Coca-Cola floats were maybe my favorite. Strawberry milkshakes came at a close second.

I figured it might be fun to show you a little tutorial if you, too, want to be OCD and make an avocado into a rose.

The second step is to place the cut side down onto your cutting board and peel the outside of the avocado. If it’s perfectly ripe, the surface will be flawless. Haas avocados are glorious, aren’t they?

Then you take your sharpest and thinnest knife and make slices horizontally. These slices should be pretty close together.

Then fan it out using your hands. Instead of trying to pull the avocado slices apart, push them gently with your fingers. They’ll fan out pretty easily.

Depending on whether you’re the kid or the parent, birthdays parties are either something to look forward too all year, or a dreaded day of reckoning that comes around far too often. Aside from all the usual cleaning and decorating that goes into pulling off a party, with kids birthdays, you also have to strike a balance between making food that the kids will eat, with the judgy looks you’ll get from other parents when you serve Cheetos and tater tots.
