She drinks it wither-straw.

Imagine being as gorgeous as Reese Witherspoon and still hunting for beauty tips. Well apparently, years ago Reese was sitting next to Kerry Washington at an awards show and couldn’t help but to ask her future Little Fires Everywhere co-star for her secret to flawless skin. Kerry shared this simple smoothie recipe and swore it helped her skin, hair and nails!

Sure it’s a lot of greens but it’s worth slurping them down if you’ll look anything like these Hollywood beauts. Despite it’s funky green color, Reese swears that the smoothie tastes delicious and keeps her satisfied until lunch time. The recipe makes two servings so Reese recommends putting half in a sealable jar for the next day. Two days of good skin here I come!

Here’s the recipe which is inspired by Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie

Joanna Gaines Shares Her Watermelon Mint Lemonade Recipe And It Looks Like Summer In A Glass

Published

She might have to change her brand to Mmmagnolia.

Apparently raising five kids, running a design empire and launching her own television network isn’t enough to keep Joanna Gaines busy, she also creates delicious recipes too?!

With her lifestyle brand, Magnolia, ever expanding the Fixer Upper star has taken to sharing recipes and food tips that are fun and family friendly. In her latest blog post, Gaines welcomes summer with a thoughtful celebration. She shares that rather than focusing on a to do list for the season, she chooses a word to serve as a guidepost for her family. “Directing our focus toward an idea like exploration, curiosity, or even simplicity gives us a framework for how we ought to spend our time this season—which, in return, promises that it will be a summer well spent,” she writes. Well, the word she must have chosen this year is “delicious” because she then shares her Watermelon Mint Lemonade recipe and it looks like the perfect escape for those hot summer days. Oh, and don’t worry there is no shiplap in this recipe.

Watermelon Mint Lemonade

1 ½ quarts water

½ cup sugar

2 sprigs mint, plus more for garnish

5–6 cups cubed watermelon

½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)

Instructions

In a large pot bring water and sugar to a light boil until the sugar is dissolved and your mixture is clear, stirring to dissolve sugar—this will be your simple syrup. Turn off the heat and toss in the sprigs of mint. Allow mint to steep for 15 minutes, then remove it from the simple syrup and discard sprigs. Allow mint-infused syrup to cool for about 10 minutes and then pour into a blender with the watermelon. Blend until smooth and then pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher to get rid of any seeds and pulp. Add lemon juice to the pitcher and stir. Serve immediately over ice with a sprig of mint for garnish.

The Almigh-tea beverage.

If you haven’t been following actor Leslie Jordan on Instagram are you even quarantine properly?

Over the last few months, Jordan has been sharing hilarious videos on social media with the hopes of cheering up his followers during this unprecedented time. Typically, the 65-year-old southerner shares stories from various jobs he’s had or tales from his childhood but his latest post featured his recipe for iced tea because according to Jordan he was raised “to love my mama, love my daddy, love Jesus and love iced tea.”

Here’s the tea:

  1. Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil
  2. Fill two wide-mouthed, quart-sized mason jars with the water
  3. Add 4 Lipton tea bags to each jar
  4. Cover each jar with a lid and let steep for five minutes
  5. Divide 1/3 cup of sugar and add to each jar

Sure it’s not rocket science but it does sound like a fool proof way to enjoy some sweet southern tea! And if you want to see some more hilarity posted by the sweet southerner himself, click here!

Adam Ruins Everything Exposes The “Expiration Dates” Myth!

Published

on

Admittedly, I am notorious for questioning and pushing an expiration date to its limit. I think the expiration dates on some things is pure propaganda in a lot of cases.
Thanks to this clip from Adam Ruins Everything, I now have proof that I’m not crazy.

We are wasting CRAZY AMOUNTS OF FOOD based on dates that are often mere suggestions or arbitrary timeframes. I’m keeping this video in my favorites for the next time I’m defending my desperate consumption of some crackers I’ve been hoarding for a while.
