you're looking at my most favourite cookies. they're made with oatmeal, peanut butter, cinnamon, and chocolate chips. i usually eat at least 4 spoonfuls of the dough before i roll them into small circles for the baking tray. they come out warm and soft with the chocolate delicately melted.
i painted this trinket box at my favourite pottery painting studio. it's called brushfire. such visits have become an annual summer tradition. i always take a friend or two and we paint and laugh and chat the time away.
this year's creation was inspired by scandinavia, ombre, and luscious reds.
ps. my pinterest page is exploding—taking a design-centered course will do that!
this divine smoothie is one that i enjoy at least four times a week. my petit green machine. +++
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
½ cup nonfat vanilla greek yogurt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp peanut butter
4+ cups fresh spinach
1 frozen banana, sliced
blend, blend, blend. +++
i love to leave extra peanut butter on the spoon i sip it with.
an evening complete with squash and béchamel vegetarian lasagne, salad made from a garden's bounty, and no-bake blueberry cheesecake. of course, friends were there, meaning smiles were exchanged and laughter was plentiful. the palpable joy of food shared with friends is one i like to experience as often as possible.
