Hello again and haaappppeee Friday!
Summertime, and the livin’s easy. Isn’t it a great season to be alive? Where there’s loads of sunshine and the best simple food of the year! Beach days and park plays call for easy eats, like the best sandwiches which I happen to be a master maker of as you can see here.
So dig into summer everyone! But first, let’s get into this week’s Friday Faves.
Would you volunteer to be locked in a Mars simulator for a year for $60,000? I wouldn’t, but these 4 volunteers (all strangers) did, as part of a research mission for NASA.
The science behind why people hate the word “moist.” Personally, I’m okay with it.
I can def use this! How to identify plants using your iPhone camera.
This video of Paul Rudd and Meryl Streep dancing together is ADORABLE.
I really loved this documentary short.
Some fun (and very specific) entertaining ideas for summer. Which one’s your fave?
And, this chicken chickpea shawarma dip is definitely beckoning.
Firing up the grill to make this peachy dessert.
Weekend brunch is begging for this hashbrown casserole.
The only thing missing from this fresh peach cake is a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream.
These chicken thighs bring the heat.
Street corn tacos are what’s for dinner.
These chocolate chip cookies snuck a bit of healthy in and nobody will notice.
It’s zucchini season and here are 4 recipes you should definitely make:
- Stanley Tucci’s zucchini pasta (it’s really delish)
- Zucchini and Fresh Corn Salad (one of my favorite easy summer salads)
- My 5-Minute Parmesan Zucchini (a no-brainer side that takes just 5 minutes and goes with anything!)
- How to Make the BEST Zucchini Bread (my very favorite thing to make with zucchini)
I LOVE a French Dip and this recipe in the slow cooker is a major effort saver.
A poke cake I’d be happy to poke my fork into.
More lemon pound cake please.
My mouth is watering for this smooth and creamy chocolate dessert.
This jewelry organizer is brilliant and would make travel a breeze (great price too).
Obsessed with the neckline of this pretty top.
I love this one too and it could also double as a pool/beach coverup.
I keep hearing excellent things about this face serum.
Love this outdoor food cover, and it’s on sale.
Here’s how to clean stainless steel appliances so they really shine.
How to learn new things as an adult (because you have to flex that brain!)
3 things to do when you overthink everything and can’t make decisions.
Okay, that’s it for this week. Have a good one and cook something good!
