10 PINK FLAMINGO PARTY IDEAS
Now that we're getting into late summer, your kids have probably watched a fair amount of Netflix. My daughter's actually getting bored of it... what?! :)
So I wanted to bring you this Hawaiian paper lei kid craft to keep your kids engrossed long enough for you to do the laundry and maybe even catch your own favorite Netflix show. What makes this my favorite craft is that it's entertaining for older kids (especially if they're doing the paper punching), simple for the youngsters, there's no big mess to clean up at the end, the supplies are inexpensive, and everyone gets something pretty to wear when done. Told you it was a good one!
To cool down this summer, how about making these rainbow Vitamin Water popsicles using this simple tutorial from Shauna at Ella and Annie Magazine! I'm seriously ready to eat one now!
Do your kids love Vitamin Water? Mine do! So I thought I would make some delicious rainbow popsicles using their favorite Vitamin Water flavors.

This fresh and summery fruit and herb ice cubes idea is from Shauna at Ella and Annie Magazine! What an easy way to add a little color and flavor to your beverages.
Not only are these fruit and herb ice cubes so pretty to look at, they actually add a bit of flavor to a glass of sparkling water! These are perfect additions to your favorite spring and summer drinks. Such a simple idea will go a long way when entertaining your guests and you can get creative with what fruits and herbs you use. Yum!
We were asked by Hebrew National to come up with a recipe that would take our summer hot dog grilling to a whole new level. We came up with this egg bread hot dog bun recipe to give our Hebrew National hot dogs even more depth and flavor.
These buns are rich and eggy, and hold up nicely to the salty, smokiness, of the hot dog. They've got a crunchy exterior and a soft interior, and feel much more substantial (plus, much tastier) than buns you buy at the store.
In these peach blueberry muffin tin pies, I knew I wanted to make something that incorporated all of the incredible summer fruit I'm seeing at the farmer's market.
But I didn't just want to make a big 'ol pie, I wanted to make mini pies I could bake in a muffin tin. I thought they'd be more portable and bite size, great for outdoor entertaining, plus aren't they darn cute?
I love the taste of challah. It's soft, light, eggy, and a tiny bit sweet. For those who don't know, challah is a traditional egg bread eaten by many cultures, but especially by Jews at the sabbath.
It's also my favorite bread to make French toast with, because it brings so much flavor and richness all by itself. But this time I wanted to step out of my French toast comfort zone, and add some new flavors for summer.
Nothing to me says summer like ice cream. Since I was a child, ice cream has always been my favorite dessert.
One of my best summer memories is of my dad taking me out for ice cream to our local ice cream shop in New Jersey called Grunings. The best part was that I was allowed to order anything I wanted, and I always got the same thing... a banana split. My special banana split had vanilla ice cream with extra chocolate sauce and extra whipped cream. It was delicious.
