Summertime Fried Zucchini



So this may be a little out of season now, but this is one my favorite things to eat in summer! I make a quick batter, slice the zucchini, dip them, and fry. The batter is easy to make, too!

All you need is:
Water
Flour
Egg
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Powder

I like to add other stuff too, but it depends on what I feel like and whats in my spice cabinet. I like to experiment and have fun with it. It always comes out delicious! What are some of your go-to spices??

DIY Ring Holders



My best friend is newly engaged and she was wanting a place to keep her ring when she has to take it off. I have always wanted to make one of these since I saw them on Pinterest. She mentioned doing it one day we were out shopping so we picked out some frames and made plans to do it. She came over a few days later with everything we needed.

Here's what you need and how to do it;

A picture frame
Scrapbook paper
Sticker jewels
Sticker letters
A pin, or a hook 
Thread or string
Tape
Pliers

1. Take the glass out of the frame
2. Cut the scrapbook paper to fit
3. Wrap the pin with the string (so your ring doesn't get scratched)
4. Push it through the paper and cardboard backing in the picture frame 
5. Bend the end of the pin flat and tape it in place
6. Stick the jewels and letters anywhere you'd like.
7. Bend the pin into a hook shape (if you didn't use a hook) so your ring wont slide off

Please share in the comments below if you have made one of these or do make one. I'd love to see yours!

Homemade Lemonade



Homemade lemonade is so easy and it's one of my favorite things to make during these hot summer days! I buy a bag of large lemons, slice them in half, and run them over my electric juicer. I don't know what I'd do without that thing! While I'm doing all of that, I have a pan of water on the stove heating to a boil with about a cup to a cup and a half of sugar in it. The amount depends on the size of pitcher you are going to use. I like to to do this so the sugar dissolves and doesn't just sit at the bottom of the pitcher. Once that's done and all of the lemons have been juiced, mix everything together in your pitcher and add cold water to fill. That's it! Quick, easy, and delicious!
