Frozen Watermelon Lemonade!

Peach Mozzarella Crostini! Okay, here’s the deal. Since moving to St. Louis I’ve have had some extreme issues with grocery shopping…and sometimes food in general. It’s not that there aren’t amazing restaurants, chefs, produce, etc. But you grow used to what you’re used to. So, when I moved I was sad to not have my normal grocery stores (except TJ’s). However, one of my favorite stores in California was a Sprouts. And there is a similar store here in St. Louis!!! Lucky’s Market, located in Rock Hill…near another favorite, Katie’s Pizza and Pasta.

I think anyone who does the grocery shopping in their family knows how important it is to have a grocery store you love. I mean the confusion of not knowing how to get around a store, not being able to find your special items, or sometimes just the dirtiness/dinginess of a store…I’ve honestly cried after bad grocery store experiences. So for me finding Lucky’s was the greatest experience. Folks here in St. Louis seem to love it and I completely understand. Fresh produce, local products, big open store with a ton of light.

I like the store so much I’ve partnered up with them for some fun recipes! And as you all know…brunch is my thang so I created a handful of recipes for ya’ll to make and enjoy at your next brunch party.

Summer here in St. Louis…I feel like I’m always talking about how stinking hot it is. BUT IT IS SO TRUE. So I came up with this refreshing cool drink to keep it cool this summer. Let me know how you’re keeping cool right now! Mostly so I can steal your tricks.
