Hello and happy weekend to you!

I’m thrilled that the insane heat and humidity we had earlier this week finally broke and so excited that there are actually some days with highs in the 60’s in the long-term forecast. I live for this cooler season!

I’m wishing you a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing weekend doing what you love!

What I Bookmarked This Week

Baked crunchy hot honey chicken sounds crazy good (and easy, too!).

I love a good club sandwich when I go out to eat, so I definitely want to try this triple-decker club sandwich at home!

Absolutely craving a big taco salad right now.

And also this kale crunch salad! I was on a big kale salad kick for awhile but haven’t had one in quite some time. This recipe has me craving them again.

Coffee cake cookies with that crumb topping, yes!

Have a delicious weekend!
