It’s this time again! Time for the Monthly Favorites!

In my Monthly Favorites series I share my current obsessions with food products, kitchen items, sometimes even home and beauty. You can see my first post, HERE. If you recently discovered a product and love it – tell me about it in the comment section below! I’d love to see it!

In the month of June I discovered new products, I was introduced to new subscriptions and now it’s time to share about it with you guys. This time it looks like I have more random things than food but let’s start with pasta. icon biggrin Monthly Favorites: June 2016

For the last two weeks, temperatures here in Kansas are crazy high. We are at almost 100 degrees F every day. And there is no change in sight!

In other words – IT”S HOOOOOOTTTT!

Aaaand from what I can see on my weather app, so is most of the country. Which means that there is a high chance that just like me, you  don’t want to turn on the oven. Mine has a “do not open” sign on it. Instead, my slow cooker is getting a work out (this Teriyaki Chicken is on a rotation!) and our grill is sizzling away (don’t mind if I have another helping of these Pineapple Chicken Kabobs!).
