Oh my gosh, you guys. The amount of mint I had last month was insane. I felt like I couldn’t keep up with all the mint plant was producing. In case you couldn’t tell that I was up to my eyeballs in mint…I have yet another recipe that I incorporated mint into.
I wanted to make mint simple syrup as a way to get rid of it all easily but I also wouldn’t use it often because I don’t typically put sugar in my lattes. So this strawberry mint crisp was born! I swear mint goes so well with any summer fruit. Makes sense, I guess. Mint reminds me of summertime so a summer herb of course would go well with summer fruit. It’s like summer on summer!Read More »
Monday’s deserve a pizza recipe because when I think of pizza, I think of weekend and I would just like to live in that ignorant bliss stage and pretend that it’s still the weekend. We had a very good weekend. It was the first weekend in the past month that we didn’t have any plans and any entertaining. We literally just vegged on the couch and binge-watched Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle (omg so good. We’re on the…Read More »
We celebrated Winston’s 2nd barkday (birthday) last Saturday by inviting his friends over to finally play in our new big backyard that we basically purchased because of Winston, haha All day we kept telling him about how all his friends were going to come over and play and obviously we knew he couldn’t understand us but I think he could “feel” our excitement because 10 minutes before everyone showed up…he was super restless and wondering why we were setting up…Read More »
We finally found a new show to watch! The Man in the High Castle on Amazon Prime. I love WWII stuff and this show is shot in the perspective of the United States losing the war and the Germans and Japanese control the United States. So half the United States is under German control and the other half is under Japanese control. It just blows my mind to even think that way but it’s such a cool concept and so…Read More »
This post is sponsored by Shenandoah Valley Organic. All opinions are my own. I have the easiest and most flavorful weeknight dinner recipe for you today. It is perfect for back-to-school meal planning! I know, I winced just typing that out. I can’t believe we’re almost in back-to-school mode. Didn’t summer just begin? Around here, they changed up the start time of schools. We used to always go back after Labor Day but now the schools go back before Labor Day.…Read More »
I spotted a whole ton of sour cherries at the farmers market a few weeks ago and they stuck out like a sore thumb in my mind. I couldn’t stop thinking about them but even with that, I didn’t buy them!!! I came home, told Jason about them, and he was like, “that’s what Grandma Wampler used when she made cherry pie! They’re like gold.” Back to the farmers market I went to buy two giant overflowing quarts of them. What…Read More »
Everyone is talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (still) and I’m over here like savouring all the farmer’s market days we have left for the season. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I totally splurged and got a bunch of items from the anniversary sale (I’m revamping my wardrobe to basically be neutral — is that boring? I feel like it’s more versatile, no?) including loved products that I’ve used through the years but I’m totally crying on the inside…Read More »
