Maple Whiskey Sour -- naturally sweetened, and so refreshing! | gimmesomeoven.com

Maple Whiskey Sour

I’m on a mission to become the girl who makes cocktails for her friends when they come over. Sure, I’ve experimented a bit with mixology in the past.  But the majority of the time, I’ve usually resorted to just uncorking a bottle of wine when people come over, or diving into...

Watermelon Salsa -- quick and easy to make, and so refreshing! | gimmesomeoven.com

  It’s no secret that chips and salsa are my ultimate foodie love language. I regularly drag my friends to Mexican happy hours as often as possible, have my recipe for restaurant-style salsa memorized after making it so often, have themed my birthday parties all around chips and salsa for...

15 Watermelon Recipes

Eating watermelon is pretty much like jumping into a pool on a 95-degree day. It’s invigorating, relieving, ever-so-sweet, and the perfect way to naturally cool you down from the inside-out. I love biting into its soft, yet crunchy flesh, while a flood of sweet nectar dribbles down my chin, no...

Easy Mango Shrimp Tacos -- absolutely delicious, and ready to go in about 20 minutes! | gimmesomeoven.com

Easy Mango Shrimp Tacos

This post is sponsored by Old El Paso. One of the things that has amused me most about becoming a food blogger is hearing people say they are “intimidated” to cook for me.  Somehow I’ve heard that four times this month.  And while I suppose I understand, it always...

Healthy Zucchini Muffins

These last few weeks have felt like a whirlwind. Between two trips back home to Wichita to be with family, deadlines and projects galore due for work, and a host of morning coffee dates, impromptu lunches, margarita happy hours, evening grill-outs and late-night front porch talks filling just about every...
