Hello, Everyone! Here in Arizona we are getting a little break from the heat as our monsoons roll in. We’ve had a few epic thunderstorms, one of which knocked down one of the trees in our backyard! My husband wasn’t too thrilled about it, but it’s given him a project to keep him busy. My mom has been visiting for the past two weeks and she’s cooked us so many delicious home cooked meals. Now that she’s gone I’m trying to get better at cooking while toting around a 4 week old baby, but it’s hard!
I’ve gotta get better at it though because all the recipes we have for you this week look amazing and I can’t wait to make them! I hope you all are looking forward to them too 🙂 Have a great weekend!
