What is your favorite part about summer? To me it is always the food. Having cook outs, firing up the grill and having friends and family over is what warm summer nights are all about! When I was a little kid I just loved summer so much. We were still in Chicago and I would get together with my cousins and we would just have a ball. Slip n slides, pool parties in those tiny plastic pools and pumping our legs harder and harder to go as fast as the wind down a hill by my house on our bikes. That’s what I think of when summer comes to mind. But, the sweets, they were (and still are!) my favorite! Ice cold fizzy sodas to quench our thirst when we were good was always a special treat on extra hot afternoons. Those special sodas are what inspired today’s post, a nod to my childhood!

How I Spoil My Kitties + Giveaway

**I love my kitties and love to spoil them, getting to try out Fancy Feast® broths for this sponsored post really came in handy for a special treat! #LoveABowl **

I love all my animals, I think we all do. For now, I consider them my babies… my fur babies! They are a special part of our family and I like to treat them the same way. Giving them special treats shows that we care about them and that they are loved. When I got the opportunity to try these new Fancy Feast® broths, I knew it would be that special treat I was looking for!

Lemon Oreo and Raspberry No Churn Ice Cream

I have been seeing all these delicious no churn ice creams lately and I just had to go and make one of my own! With the frozen desserts series coming to an end, I thought I would really leave it with a bang! I had a poll on my facebook page asking you which lemon berry combo you liked the most. I have to say, the answers were all over the place but just one vote over ruled all the others, Jeremy! He told me to go with raspberries so raspberries it was! And, I’m glad he mentioned it because raspberries are my favorite berry! I’ve never made a no churn ice cream before but it just might be my next go to! It is so easy and comes out smooth and delicious! The addition of lemon Oreos and fresh raspberries just takes it over the top!
