You guys…it is HOT. Like, really hot. I left Texas to escape the unforgiving summers and stifling humidity for the seasons-filled, cooler days that make up the East Coast for a reason. I know, I preach on and on about how much I love summer and the first time it gets tough, I turn into a gigantic wimp. Who tends to whine. A lot. As a result, I was craving something light and refreshing to help get me through this heat wave. These Blackberry Lime cupcakes are light as air and refreshing in a way only lime can be. Paired with a margarita, why I think you might just have yourself a perfect little Sunday.
Homemade jam is one of those things I’ve never attempted and then kick myself once I finally hunker down and make it. It is incredibly easy and infinitely adaptable. If you happened to have been a bit overzealous at the super market and find yourself with more berries then you’ll ever be able to eat, then jam may just be your new best friend.
As the heat wave continues across the country, I hope all of you find yourself with a friend or family member whom has a pool. I myself am driving 4+ hours this weekend to sit by one. Worth it? 100%.
