Monthly Favourites July 2016
Hey everyone! Well, here we are again to another monthly favourites & round-up. Any big plans for the upcoming weekend? I wanna hear all about it (especially if it involves good eats 😉 ) Hubby and I will be having a little staycation next week (fingers crossed for nice weather), so I won’t be having a post and minimal time, if any, on social media. A girl needs a break every once in a while to recharge, doesn’t she? But, rest assured, I will be back the following week all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with a delicious recipe for you guys! Pull up a coffee, get comfy and enjoy, my friends.
RECIPES I’VE POSTED THIS MONTH –
FOOD & FOOD RELATED SHINANIGANS
Ok, you guys, you may have read on one of my blog posts that hubby and I tried Nashville Style Hot Chicken. The recipe came from Bon Appetit and it was seriously the bomb dot com. The chicken is breaded, fried and brushed with a spicy cayenne infused oil. Words can’t describe properly the awesomeness that is this chicken. I highly recommend trying it if you haven’t already. You don’t know what’s missing from your life 😛
These are some scrumptious recipes from friends and fellow food bloggers that I’ve been loving this month. I’m sure you’ll feel the same 🙂
Blackberry-Chipotle Glazed Cedar Plank Salmon from No Spoon Necessary. I think this is such a brilliant idea to combine the sweet and tart blackberry flavour with smoky chipotle. Such an impressive recipe to share with family and friends (or to keep all for yourself if you’re a big salmon lover like me). Dinner perfection!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brookie Tart from The Beach House Kitchen . How awesome is this recipe, you guys? It’s cookie meets brownie and becomes bffs. Can’t decide on which treat to stuff your piehole with? Well, you don’t have to with this delicious recipe. Plus, not to mention, how beautiful it looks!
Unbelievable Peanut Butter Pie from Sally’s Baking Addiction. If you are a fan of peanut butter, then this one is for you! This is peanut butter flavour to the max here. Plus, aside from the crust, it’s no bake! Score!
Hubby and I finally watched the latest Star Wars movie. It was just released on Netflix so I got to stay home in the comfort of my leggings, on the couch with some munchies. I was glued to the screen from start to end (and that’s saying somethin’). Hubby didn’t even really care about watching it and he loved it too!
The Great British Baking Show is back on PBS. These are home bakers and they are seriously talented, you guys. It amazes me the creations they come up with. Every time I watch an episode I’m inspired to bake something. Highly recommended. Be prepared to get hungry. Maybe you should just go ahead already and get a box of donuts or something, ok 😉 ?
Just the other day, hubby had on Austin City Limits on TV and The Black Keys were playing . What great music. I particularly love their El Camino album. It’s alternative, but so easy listening. We went right away and bought the album.
‘Never be Like You’ featuring Kai by Flume. This song has some serious beats? And have you ever listened to a song and thought to yourself ‘You know, I could do some serious contemporary dancing to this.’ No? Not for you? Ok, ok, not me either…..hehehe. It’s not like I watch ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ or anything<——guilty as charged.
So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I also LOVE all kinds of beauty related things. I have a bunch of facial cleansers and lotions and potions in my bath and totally forgot about this one. It’s Josie Maran’s Argan Cleansing Oil. It’s like angels came down from heaven and kissed your face when you use this. Ok, maybe a tad dramatic, but seriously, when I started to use it I was wondering what I had been waiting for in trying it out. And it smells amaze balls.
RANDOM STUFF –
Furry child has discovered a new food that he LOVES. Our little boy is so funny. He really enjoys broccoli (yes, broccoli), but recently we gave him some mashed turnip with carrot with his food and he ate it up like it was nobody’s business. Now, we regularly keep a little container of it in the fridge for him.
Anywho, that’s all folks for this month’s Monthly Favourites July 2016. Hope you’ve enjoyed & been a bit entertained! Have an awesome upcoming weekend & lots of relaxing like this little guy….chit chat again soon!
