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.

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.

Later this year it will have been 9 years since I moved to Los Angeles. NINE YEARS! Remarkable…and also so so scary that time has moved that quickly. Before I moved to LA, my dad warned me, “You can lose a decade with a blink of an eye.” He was right. Time has flown. Life is so busy here, perhaps too busy.

I am not a fan of “energy bars”. They’re often loaded with processed sugar and refined oils, while their nutrient content is boosted using questionable additives. Still, for those that maintain an active lifestyle, I get their appeal. They’re small and packed with protein and carbs, which makes them a dense source of energy to fuel your epic hikes.
