My husband never really followed sports too much. We didn’t have football parties, he didn’t drag me along to baseball games, nor was he screaming at the television when his home team didn’t sink a basket and basketball. It didn’t matter too much to me because I’m not much for sports myself. However when it comes to boxing he just can’t get enough of it.

He and I rented the Marcos Maidana versus Adrien Broner fight and it was definitely an upset that turned the boxing world upside down.
I was challenged to give up my car for three days. This certainly was no easy task. In fact when I first heard the challenge I almost laughed it off and thought it would be completely impossible. That said, I enjoy a good bet and was up to the task. Fortunately it’s summer and I don’t have as many obligations as we do during the school year, and I gave it a go. I quickly was reminded what it was like to be without a car again, as I was there many times in my own life.

It also only requires a few ingredients and is low maintenance.
This smooth ice cream is a cool indulgence for special occasions. Passion fruit grows on pretty vines at The ranch. The pulp boasts significant amounts of beta-carotene, vitamin c, and fiber, and a tart, floral flavor that’s a winning contrast to the sweet coconut. if you can’t get your hands on a passion fruit, the ice cream is good layered with banana, kiwi, and mango slices to create a tropical banana split, or simply top with fresh berries.

If you are a fan of almonds, you will love this easy almond cake recipe. Calling it a cake is a stretch – it’s in between a cake and a cookie bar. This is a rich, decadent treat and a little goes a long way.
Our family loves to BBQ and have friends and family over to enjoy the summer weather and time off. I do always feel like it is a good time to try out and test new recipes or ideas, since I have a willing crowd. Summer to me means watermelon and fruit salads, but here is a fun twist that I made and worked as the perfect edible centerpiece and got a good reaction from kids.
