August 2016: A Review

While I love pumpkin spice and apple everything as much as the next girl I’m not ready to break out the boots, sweaters, or scarves just yet. I know summer may be fading (although you wouldn’t know it by the weather, and I’m not complaining about that) but I’m holding on for dear life and I’ve got plenty of delicious summer recipes in this round up if you’re trying to pump the breaks on fall too.
