What We’re Reading: Spring Edition

Now that the school year has come to a close, there’s nothing more exciting than the moments where reading is no longer required but by choice. I can’t wait to dive into some books that have on hold until summer. Whether history, non-fiction, business, or self-improvement is your thing, you’ll find a new favorite, as we share what we’re reading, spring edition.

Just 5: Homemade Salsa

As a kid there was nothing I loved more than chips and salsa as a snack. Over the years we would add queso to the list. I remember coming home from long days at school and my brother and I would sit on the couch sharing a bowl of chips and salsa. It was delicious and always hit the spot. While I’m a bit older now, I still absolutely love this snack and have been exploring recipes to make homemade salsa. This recipe has become a staple around our house. It takes around 5 minutes and 5 ingredients to make. We’re lucky if a jar of this lasts more than a week around our house, so I’m sure you’ll love this staple as well.

Honey Lavender Bourbon Ale

This weekend marks a special occasion in the life of Kentuckian. The Kentucky Derby is Saturday and gives us a moment to reflect, to celebrate, and most importantly to remember the horse racing traditions of our great state. Many will put on fine dresses, hats, carrying themselves with beauty and class. While mint juleps are cited as the official drink of the Kentucky Derby, most Kentuckians loathe them and would rather drink bourbon straight or as a mule. This cocktail is an updated take on a Kentucky mule and is light enough for long days in the heat or house parties playing multiple rounds of cornhole. Served with a fresh round of fresh lime, festive straw, and in a mason jar, it’s approachable, fun, and perfectly styled for my old Kentucky home.

Recipe Remix: Honey Lavender Latte

When it comes to spring favorites, lavender is my absolute favorite. In the mornings, you’ll usually find me sipping on a homemade latte macchiato. However, when I go out, I always head to a favorite coffee shop and purchase a honey lavender latte. This morning, I decided to take on the challenge of making it at home. It worked perfectly.

Vol 4: Rain & Remedies Playlist

There’s something about a rainy day in spring. The peaceful sound of the raindrops against the windows, and the fresh crispness of the air. We put on our coziest layers and make big pots of soup. Our April has been filled with rainy days and sometimes a great playlist can be the best remedy to getting things done when all you want to do is stay in bed. (It can be a big challenge when working from home.) We put together this playlist to embrace all that the last rainy days of spring have to offer.

Have an amazing weekend everyone!
