This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc. All opinions are my own. #SummerOfFloats When I think of summer I think of ice cream floats.

Canned Tomato Bruschetta by Foodtastic Mom

My kids are mainly into the bread and cheese but it's an easy recipe for them to help me with. There's nothing really ... Read More
