Creating a Garden

Here is what you can do to start growing a home garden. It is simple, and you just need to make sure you water it daily or water it depending on how long the water remains in the soil.

This is all you need:


~Pot- you can choose one here. If you do not have the space to create a garden, then try a hanging pot, window box, wall pot, or a pot that is good for indoors.

~Seeds of your choice☺- you can look at many different seeds here

Another option: If you want your garden to grow fast, and want to guarantee that it will grow fully, then buy a small plant (such as basil), then transfer it to a bigger pot using soil. Make sure you water it! It will grow bigger then when you first got it!


Here are some photos from the garden in my backyard:) At the bottom there are recipes you can use basil and mint leaves for!!

Iced Coffee Milkshake!!

Iced coffee is such a yummy drink that is prefect for the summer!! The problem I always have with iced coffee is that after making hot coffee, it takes a long time to cool down even with iced coffee. With this coffee milkshake, you can enjoy a creamy, thick iced coffee that tastes like a delicious milkshake in five minutes!! THIS MAKES ONE LARGE SERVING OR TWO SMALL ONES:);)

Iced Coffee Milkshake


  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee (with water)
  • 1/2 cup milk (any milk works; you can use less milk too but I use this much milk because I like the coffee flavor to be light)
  • 2 tbsp honey (add more or less depending on how sweet you like it!)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes (this creates foam on top of your milkshake that tastes like whipped cream!!)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Add more honey if you want it sweeter.
  2. Pour into a tall glass and enjoy!!
