warmer weather means vacations are just around the corner! We are looking to our family vacation spot for this year! If you are looking into a vacation spot check out . It looks amazing. Any who Here are a few of our favorite vacation recipes.

Tropical smoothie

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen mango
  • 3/4 cup of yogurt
  • 1 orange; peeled
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
Put it all in the blender and blend it up!!I've found that frozen fruit works best. Even if you buy fresh fruit and freeze it.  it is Delish!!

also try Fruit Pizzas 

Cookie Dough:
Cream together 3/4 cup softened butter and 1 cups white sugar. Beat until fluffy.

Next, add 2 eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and beat until really fluffy.

Finally, mix in 2 1/2 cups flour1 teaspoon baking powder, and1/2 teaspoon salt.

Mix really well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour OR overnight.

Roll out onto floured surface (or parchment paper) 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and cut out with cookie cutter.

Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes
*Makes about 16 - 3 1/2" cookies*

Mix 8 oz. Cream Cheese (1 block) with 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoon vanilla

lastly cut up your choice of fruit and top your cookie! now Enjoy. 

if you are looking for a more healthy smoothie option you can try a grass smoothie.... we have only made these didnt like them much but the hubby and I did. Most people who see grass smoothies think that people are cutting their grass and then putting it in their think again. On a side note if you need some one to cut your grass look into they can do it for you and so much more!  Now back to our Smoothie here is the recipe.
