May Favorites

My favorite things that I’ve loved in May! I’ve shared everything from fruit filled recipes and my favorite peanut butter brand to new running shoes and some amazing music.

Bowl of strawberries

Hello. Hiiiii. Hey. Long time no talk.

It’s been a week since the last time I blogged. I’ve missed you all. There really is not a good excuse for this silence other than the fact that I’ve been super busy lately and I’ve had a string of bad luck. I was buried in work, then my computer crashed. Fun times. I didn’t cook for a good five days because Memorial Day weekend was a total blur. I don’t have to explain why.

Poor excuses, but I hope you’ll get over it and read everything I’ve loved about May.

Good, let’s get started then.

Monique with a grapefruit martini

First of all I’ve been cocktailing around a bit. Summer patios call for drinking outside.

This picture was taken inside so I guess my previous statement is sort of irrelevant. I did have a really good grapefruit martini though.

Two peaches

Fruit, it’s everywhere. Peach bbq sauce, mango salsa, and my favorite, strawberry buttercream. Somebody needs to have a farmer’s market party.

A lake at sunset

Gorgeous sunsets on the lake. Ahhh Minnesota summers.

Jar of peanut butter

Trader Joe’s creamy peanut butter! I’ve got an amazing recipe coming your way soon.

Seriously this peanut butter could be the love of my life, but then I remembered these pancakes. I have made them alllllllll month long. It kind of went like this: Dinner? Pancakes. Happy hour apps? Mini pancakes. What are you thinking about right now? Pancakes.

I happen to think making pancakes is incredibly romantic.

If you are wondering how flipping pancakes can be romantic, then clearly you need to get in your kitchen Sunday morning with your sweetie and share a plate. Put chocolate chips in them. Laugh. Drink a mimosa while you’re there. Just be with each other and eat pancakes!

Seriously make it happen.

Unbaked strawberry banana bread in a loaf pan

What about banana breads with crazyyyy additions.

Brown butter strawberry. Bacon peanut butter. Nutella. You name it and it’s going in my banana bread.

Running shoes with pink laces

My super cute new running shoes with neon laces. I’m picking up running again now that it’s nearly summer.

I’m happy to report that I’m back up to 5 miles. Unfortunately I think my legs might fall off soon. Oh well.

Young boy making chicken fingers

Cooking with kids… it’s like the best thing ever! They’re so creative, it amazes me. Here is Benjamin making homemade baked chicken fingers.

Seriously get in the kitchen with your kids, you’ll have a blast. Promise.

A grandma and grandpa at the breakfast table

My grandparents! Look how cute they are. Spending time with them is one of my favorite things in the world. My grandma and I went cooking crazy. I’m sharing her famous waffle recipe soon and I’ll have a recap of my trip. I know that was like two weeks ago… I need to get it together.

Besides all of this. I really want you to check out my favorite new artist Lana Del Ray. I’m obsessed. Go listen now!

As always, come chat with me on Twitter and Facebook. Of course I’ll be back soon with recipes.
