Week three of our Iowa Ice Cream Road Trip brought us to a restaurant not only known for their ice cream, but also for their burgers! A double win! Arty's Ice Cream & Grill in Wilton, Iowa lived up to the hype and our family left filled to the brim.

The 4th of July is a great time to celebrate our country's independence, show off your patriotism, spend time with family and friends, shoot off fireworks and check crops. It's been tradition for decades that farmers check their crops, especially corn, to see if it is "Knee High by the 4th of July." Now while knee high isn't the benchmark for farmers anymore due to hybridization and improved genetics, it is still a fun tradition for our family to benchmark our corn (and family's) growth every year (see 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012).

Between family grill-outs, potlucks with friends and the need for easy recipes in the summertime, my Hog Wild Baked Beans are always a hit and through the years have become a request for get togethers.

Our family loves camping and one recipe we have to make every time we go is my 5 Ingredient Campfire Cobbler. Not only is this a delicious, sweet treat to make over the campfire, but it is easy to make and simple to pack along with all our your camping gear and food!
