iced coffee

iced coffee is probably one of my favorite summer drinks, 
it may be tied with homemade iced tea.

in order to save a buck this summer i have figured out the perfect way to make iced coffee at home.
this is how

3-4 tbsp coffee ground (fresh ground is best)

put the coffee grounds and syrup into a french press
fill with water (don't press it down)
let it sit in the fridge for 12 hours or over night

after 12 hours press it down pour over coffee ice cubes and milk of your choice (soy, almond, regular)

i like to do 1 part milk to three parts coffee. 

so there you have it my favorite iced coffee recipe.
what are some of your favorite summer recipes drinks or food?

just for a while

hi friends!
just wanted to let you know that i probably won't be around here much the next few months.
as the weather is the grass is getting greener, the trees and showing signs of life, and i'm getting hitched. 
so go enjoy the fresh air! 
and be ready for some super duper fun stuff when i get back in the fall. 
that's not to say i will be completely gone during the summer. 

have a happy day!
