Happy Sunday, friendly faces! 🤓
How’s your weekend going? This is the first one in months where I haven’t been in the kitchen all day testing recipes for the book, and it’s been soooooo nice to just relax and do absolutely nothing productive. Kind of like when you take that last test at school and feel like you can finally enjoy a lazy summer.
That’s not to say that I’m not a fan of spending time in the kitchen, but it’s been nice to scale back a little and just focus on recipes for Spoons… like the ABJ banana bread bars I posted yesterday 😉
I hope you guys are having just as relaxing of a weekend, and I hope you enjoy the links I came across this week!
