I bet you are wondering what in the world this easy no-bake recipes title means. Take a seat, and allow me to regale you with a small tale of what and how it came to be.
Two years ago I started this blog with the intention to get better in the kitchen. I am a young mother of three boys, so I knew I needed to refine my cooking skills. (Since those boys are quickly growing up into eating MACHINES.) It took me awhile to pin down exactly what niche I want this food blog to fit under. Eventually I realized I needed to share what I am cooking, which are delicious, simple, and fun recipes for the family.
However, that still didn't feel like it was specific enough.
Then my husband and I had a brainstorming chat one night, two months ago. He suggested, "You know what you should do? Structure your food blog around monthly topics!"
I sat on that idea for a while. Mushing it around in my brain.
Yes! I thought. This is precisely the structure I need!
So. Ta-da! The Butter Half officially has specific topics and themes it will follow each month, making your life easier in the kitchen.
I would like to introduce to you the topic for June...
Easy No-Bake Recipes!
What exactly does that look like, Abbey?
Glad you asked, my fine-feathered foodie friend!
There will be at least one recipe per week that shows you how to make easy meals without the use of a stove or oven. This is perfect for June because it's the month where the weather officially gets warmer, and the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven in an already stuffy house. (I do hope you use your air conditioning if it's available to you, though. I live with an air conditioning troll who would rather suffocate in his own puddle of sweat, than pay an extra $50 to switch on the AC. I won't mention names.)
The recipes will be covering easy breakfast, dinner, dessert, and then one drink, appetizer, or lunch idea. Emphasis on the EASY part. Meaning one pan, 30 minutes and under, and quick and simple cleanup. Most of the recipes can be made by and with your kids, too!
Also, I am trying my darndest to make recipe videos with each of them! Aren't those wonderful for bringing recipes to life and making them more approachable? I agree!
So, what's the first mouthwatering meal for easy no-bake recipes this month?
Drumroll, por favor . . .
Vegan Italian Sodas! These bad boys are dreamy and creamy, without all the extra calories and dairy. Don't worry, honey. I got your back for swimsuit season! Check the blog for them next week!

It's not often I post here without a recipe. So, if you made it this far (ha!) give yourself a high-five for me AND a hug. That's to say THANK YOU for being a loyal reader and friend here on this blog. Because of you, I am able to support my family with extra income, and live my dream every single day by doing meaningful, passionate work that inspires me. And hopefully inspires you! You all are my butter half.
