Number 1. This cookbook. I am in love with cookbooks and this one just grabbed me the minute I walked into the store. I found it at World Market, but I decided to wait to see if I could find it elsewhere, for a bit less. I always look for a bargain! I decided for the Kindle version, which is half the price of the paper version. Here's a bit of what Amazon had online:
Recipes include: Dungeness Crab Cakes with Tarragon Aioli; Dutch Baby (puffed pancake with lemon and powdered sugar); Grilled Prosciutto-Wrapped Radicchio; and Warm Pear Upside Down Cake. This collection of recipes invites all cooks to get reacquainted with the original gourmet cooking tool.
Number 2: This adorable cookbook stand! Found at World Market (again), it is the perfect stand for both my cookbooks and my iPad. I needed something to prop up my iPad and this is going to work great! As a bonus, it looks great without a cookbook, too and only costs $12.99! It also coordinates with the placemats I purchased at the beginning of summer from Kohl's!
3. This particular favorite is something I have learned to do for myself weekly. I should probably do it daily! I am loving my essential oils and I diffuse lavendar and a blend made by Young Living every night. My husband loves it, too! This concoction is for the bath. Soak for 20 minutes. Delightful.
4. Book clubs. I love to read. Sharing the book with friends is priceless. Find yourself a book club, even if you are too busy to read the book. Time with friends is precious!
5. Coolway Beachy Salt Spray. This stuff takes my unruly, curly hair and makes waves and curls that are soft and lasting. No frizzing! Love this stuff. Discovered it in my Ipsy box. Best $10 a month I spend!
Starting next week this post will be appearing on Saturdays. I have another adventure planned with some bloggers that will come to you on Fridays. Until then, hope you have discovered something new today!
