Raspberries. Bananas. Ice cream. Snickerdoodle cookies. Homemade whipped topping. Nutella. Seriously, what more could you want right? We were recent challenged by Johnny Rockets to come up with a milkshake recipe for National Milkshake Month in September.  This was the fourth attempt we did at a milkshake and it was to die for. Plus, we're going to share five tips for making a better milkshake. So let's get started.

Ever walk out your back door to do something outside, then end up out front and need to run inside.  Problem is, the front do isn't unlocked, so you have to go all the way around back? Or how about start you car and start to pull off only to realize you forgot something, so you have turn off the car, take your keys back out, and go back inside.  Annoying right?  Not anymore, thanks to Yale Security.

I have always loved the idea of Girl Scouts.  Girl Scouts prides themselves on building confidence, courage, and character and I love those principals. My sister was a Brownie and now my nieces are in Girl Scouts themselves.  It never worked out for me to join, but most years, I happily participate in eating the famous Girl Scout cookies. I've loved seeing my nieces enjoy their time in Girl Scouts and I look forward to letting Skibbles participate in the event she wants too. I love the values and educational benefits, in addition to the friendships, that Girl Scouts offer, which is why I was excited to partner with them for this post.

Yes, you read the title correctly. Bacon fried meatballs. Why? Because, why not? Unless you are vegan or vegetarian, I'm 99.9% sure you love bacon. Heck, vegans even like the thought of bacon, no? In my opinion, it's one of the main food groups. Yes, I try to eat healthy most of the time, but you won't get me to give up my bacon.  And frying other things in bacon grease is just the best thing ever.

Summer is almost over.  But that doesn't mean the fun has to end.  It just means that you only have a fun more weeks to cram in summer activities.  Part of me wishes that summer would last as long as that awful winter we just had did, but as we've already experienced autumn days, I don't think that's going to happen.
