Back in the Kitchen: Summer Favorites

Back in the Kitchen: Summer Favorites

Getting back to my own kitchen + being 9 months pregnant = LOTS of good
food around here! :) It’s basically a main priority for me, ha. I’m sharing a
few favorite recent recipes and food products that I’m loving since being back!

IMG_3793First, I love our kitchen most because we found a way to get a cute little breakfast
nook in it! So now we finally have a place to eat and it feels more like a home!

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset Homemade coconut almond granola made from my friend Meg’s recipe here!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetA friend gave me these European sponge cloths and they are nice for wiping up spills in
the kitchen without throwing them out. I go through way too many paper towels so I
like having these since they’re reusable! I think you can find them at Crate & Barrel!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetThis Target run was a low point for me…haha we had just moved
+ I was exhausted + gave into ALL of my pregnancy cravings. Oops!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetLuckily I made a big Costco run and stocked up on some healthier snacks too ^^
Processed with VSCO with f2 preset I’m a fan of these Wild Friends spreads and now I need to order all the flaves!
Processed with VSCO with f2 preset Reunited with Kodiak Cakes = the best!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI tried out some new meal delivery apps that drop off boxes of
fresh ingredients to cook yourself. Sun Basket had a deal for the
first box to try, so we made 3 meals with them. They were a little
bit gourmet, but fun to try out and cook something different!

I had to stop myself from getting more once we finished the first pint! ^^
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetOne other meal delivery we tried out and loved the most was GreenChef!
We did their free trial and then canceled since we’ll have baby and
probably not cooking their gourmet meals the next month, but I would
resubscribe to them after. Their meals were so our style and delicious!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetWe got our meal box delivered the week of the 4th of July, and there was this
amazing All-American meal of chicken, Southern succotash, and jalapeño cornbread.
It was seriously incredible and I want to re-create it lots of times this summer!
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetAlso ^^ AMAZING steak with roasted sweet potatoes, onions, and green peppers. Heaven!
kitchen6I bought this juicer for us in hopes that we’ll use it lots, but I haven’t yet …
However we have gone through plenty of bags of these Trader’s chips :)
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetIt’s fun to restock a pantry with the good stuff ^^ and I’m a
first-timer with the avocado oil…I’ll have to report back!

kitchen1We FINALLY got to order & try out this edible cookie dough that we saw on Shark Tank
while living in Europe! Pregnancy was the perfect excuse to order this, but honestly
I am pretty sure Chase has eaten more than I have :) So let’s just say it’s pretttty good!
See all of their flavors here & drool…we tried classic chocolate chip + confetti. So rich!

kitchen5 More goodies from Primal Kitchen that we got to sample ^^
My shakes are so much better with this chocolate coconut protein powder!
kitchen7Unpacking dishes + making our favorite simple healthy meals ^^
Processed with VSCO with f2 presetI made some quick healthy PB muffins from a recipe I saw on instagram,
and they turned out so pretty even though they didn’t have all the sugar/oil.

Stop by our kitchen and have some treats! :)
