With summertime just around the corner, I’m looking forward to whipping up some tasty and fun drinks to cool off after a long day. There’s something about sitting on a patio and sipping a drink during those beautiful evening hours when it’s still warm, but no longer scalding hot. It just feels like summer!

If you’re like me, then you’ll enjoy this delicious twist on a traditional margarita.

Sage and pineapple come together to add a sophisticated depth in this drink. Paired with the typical lime and tequila in most margaritas, the sage and pineapple compliment and then elevate the cocktail. It’s really delectable!

And, if you don’t have a beach vacation planned this summer, this sage and pineapple margarita will make you feel like you’re there even when you can’t be.

If you’re stopping by here while searching for recipes, you may not know that the recipes here are all inspired by books! This particular recipe was created after reading The Rosie Project. If you love reading, check out more about this great book HERE!

Part romance, part comedy, and part quirky–The Rosie Project takes a unique narrator (think university professor with Asperger’s) and tosses him into the deep end as he tries to find a wife through his own carefully calculated survey. That just spells disaster!

I loved the book, so if you haven’t checked it out, learn more about it HERE!

And, as much as I loved the book, I think I loved this sage and pineapple margarita even more! Be sure to whip up a few and treat yo’ self this summer!

Chocolate and potato chips—two of the most loved foods in the snack world. Combine them into a dessert and I’m sold.

Besides, I don’t know about you, but Twix is one of my favorite candy bars. Cookie? Good. Caramel? Good. Chocolate? Gooooood.

I hate to admit it, but I almost single handedly took down the entire pan of these beauties. Yeah, they were that good.

If you are familiar with an old favorite called Millionaire Bars or Millionaire Shortbread, these are basically the same thing.

Sprinkle a little crush potato chips on the tops and you’ve got a hit. Or, leave the potato chips off if you like—they’re still amazing.

If you’re stopping by here while searching for recipes, you may not know that the recipes here are all inspired by books! This particular recipe was created after reading Dear Edward.

The book follows a 13-year-old boy who is the sole survivor of a major plane crash. It’s a heart-wrenching, but ultimately beautiful novel.

And, Dear Edward is sure to secure her as a novelist to watch.
