I Heard it’s National Churro Day!

Sweet potato churros

It’s National Churro Day so if you’re looking for a fun, nutritional (ahem, cough, cough) churro recipe, try these Sweet Potato Churros! I originally posted about them on a FoodieBook Friday, back in April when I had finished reading some Barbara O’Neal and Hailey Edwards books. They BOTH had delicious-sounding churros in them.

I adapted my Sweet Potato Churros with Caramel and Chocolate Sauce from two recipes. I used this recipe, halved, and swapped butternut squash with sweet potatoes (Butternut Churros), and this recipe was halved, for Easy Caramel Sauce.


It’s finally summer and I’m planning on reading outside in the glorious sunshine as much as possible. I’m so behind on my reading list. I’m also still building my read/to-read list on Goodreads. If you have any recommendations, please visit me at Goodreads or email me!

While I love both my Kindle Fire and my iPad for indoor reading, I love my Kindle PaperWhite best for outdoor reading, and road trips! The battery life is amazeballs, and you can see the text perfectly in the bright sun. I don’t know about you, but I have antiglare, transitions, and seamless bifocals, and I have to turn the brightness on my Fire and iPad up so high that the batteries don’t last long. It’s also a strain on my eyes to try and read outdoors.


Have you all seen that the new Kindle Paperwhite and Oasis are WATERPROOF! That means coffee proof too, I hope. The Oasis is kind of pricey, but I might have to upgrade the new waterproof Paperwhite. We have a humane cat deterrent to keep the feral kitties out of our garden and backyard. The device is called a scarecrow, but we call it the Cat Sprinkler. We often forget it’s there and get blasted with water. Then I end up running back into the house to towel off myself, phone/iPad/Kindle… It also sprinkles, moms, house/garden sitting neighbors (SORRY) squirrels, birds, intruders & neighborhood children whose balls go over our fence. (Sorry! NOT Sorry!) Here’s a video to see it in action.

I’m overwhelmed by the number of books on my TBR list. I’ve started two Hailey Edwards books and I’m reviewing a book at onlinebookclub.org. Blogging, cooking, photographing, editing, Twittering, Instagramming, Pinteresting… What are you reading this summer?
