The 4th of July and summer entertaining is now on tap. So what better time then now to have some killer cocktail recipes on hand. While some cocktails are more romantic. Right now, the cocktails I am focusing on are more for just summer and entertaining both family and/or friends.
By the way, I happen to not be big on wine in all honesty. But one of my favorites is Moscato Wine. But at this time of the year, I still want to enjoy a chilled cocktail. While I could indeed just chill the wine. I happen to love mixing in summer time flavors, as well.
So with this Moscato Punch, I cannot help but mix in strawberries and lemonade.

Finally the past week or so, it has felt more like summer here. Temperatures have been in the 80s and even 90s. Plus, summer vacation for my girls has also finally arrived. So, of course my family and I have been enjoying grilling and eating outdoors on our patio more and more now.
One of our favorite side dishes when we barbecue and eat outside is potato salad.
However, boiling potatoes on the stove can be truly no fun at all. I mean it is already so very hot. While yes, we have our air conditioning on to keep the temps down indoors. I still am not a fan of using my stove or oven this time of the year if I don’t.

Right now, grilling and outdoor eating has been taking center stage here for all its worth.
See we recently bought a new patio dining set and pergola to enjoy outdoor grilling/eating to its finest this summer season.
So, my husband and I have truly been happily trying all sorts of new grilling recipes. Plus, we have been enjoying, grilled meats, such as chicken, steak and pork, too.
Well recently, we were shopping at our local Walmart. I couldn’t resist checking out their fresh meat selections. This is when I found Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Pork Loin Filet. I immediately added to our cart. As this one would be perfect to add on our grill. Plus, the smoked bacon addition was a perfect choice as we are a family of bacon lovers here, too.

I know I have said it before here. But seriously summer means barbecues, outdoor grilling, eating and entertaining. One of my family’s all-time favorite summer time food is corn on the cob.
I have made corn on the cob on the grill or even boiled on a hot stove top. Yet, both methods take some time. Grilling usually requires that I prepare it beforehand with butter and seasoning. Plus on the stove top, finds me having to heat a hot stove top burner. Which only adds to the summer time heat and steam.
So now that I finally have an instant pot or pressure cooker this summer, I finally made corn on the cob in it.
