Hello hello and welcome to Weekend Favorites, #abrassalad edition! As you’ve probably noticed via social media, we’ve had quite the busy past few weeks over here at AK HQ. With fall and winter recipe testing in full-swing, a fun video project coming soon (did someone say DIY self-care tips?), an exciting surprise on Healthy Glow Co. releasing this weekend, AND a trip to Boulder, Monique has more than just pumpkin-flavored recipes on her plate. On top of that…Ambitious Wedding is only 8 weeks away!

Welcome to the weekend takeover! Here's a quick update + favorite things from AK HQ while Monique travels to Boulder, CO.

SO while Monique is in Boulder on the first ever HGC retreat, you guys get to hang with me (but be sure to follow their adventures on Instagram). It has been a little while since I introduced myself on the blog. If we’re meeting for the first time – hi! My name is Abra, and I’m the Brand Manager here at Ambitious Kitchen. When I’m not taste-testing the latest magic coming out of Monique’s kitchen (see: Healthy Chai Banana Bread), I’m connecting with the awesome brands we get the chance to work with, helping run our social media, and perfecting my toast-decorating skills.
