Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave + Win a copy!

ABRAMS Books sent me Cali’flour Kitchen in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I’ll never relish a radish or turn up for turnip, but cauliflower I could eat all day. Raw, riced or roasted; in a cookie or a crust — there’s exponential potential for this vegetable for every meal and diet. Whether it’s soups or skillets or sweets you’re after — or maybe just the cauliflower pizza crust that Amy Lacey’s Cali’flour Foods turned into a multi-million dollar business — there’s something for everyone in Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave. Dairy-free? Check. Gluten- and Grain-Free? Check and check. Keto? (Nods yes.) Keto friendly (Nods again.) Paleo, Vegan and Vegetarian? Yes to all three. Many are a combination of most of the above, making for a wide variety of dishes suitable for myriad diets.  Cali’flour Kitchen: 125 Cauliflower-Based Recipes for the Carbs You Crave + Win a copy!

Because my alone time is for everyone’s safety: July’s Sweet Reads Box

I received July’s Sweet Reads Box for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. 

We’re only a couple of weeks into summer break and I’ve already lost my shit more times than I can count. I thought I was pacing it out okay, but then last week was hot as hell and my mom was visiting so the kids were pushing it and none of us are getting enough sleep so I ended up reaching my shit-losing quota way sooner than I thought. “I’ve got to do better at keeping it together,” I told myself. But how? Then the universe sent me a sign. Because my alone time is for everyone’s safety: July’s Sweet Reads Box

Inside June’s GlobeIn Artisan Box

I received the June GlobeIn Artisan Box for free for review purposes. All opinions are my own. This post also appears on A Year of Boxes.

When you review the same subscription box month after month it’s hard not to repeat yourself. I try to mix it up a bit but the need-to-know info like what kind of box it is and how much it costs rarely changes so I pretty much cut and paste that stuff from the previous month. I mean, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? That said, if you’re familiar with GlobeIn Artisan Box I’ll totally understand if you want to scroll through to the nitty gritty on this month’s contents. And if it’s new to you, well happy day! Thank you for checking out my post. GlobeIn is a monthly subscription box featuring handmade, ethically sourced products from makers around the world. Each Premium Box has a theme and for June it’s the Picnic Box. Inside June’s GlobeIn Artisan Box

Currently coveting

After a run of sunny days it looks like we’re in for a wet week so I’m going to settle in and write a few blog posts, finish this book (loving it so far!) and maybe try to tackle some more piles in the small space sold to us as a third bedroom that’s really just a tiny catch-all. (Mainly because I promised Jennifer I’d send her one of these hilarious postcards and I’m pretty sure they’re in there somewhere.) In the meantime, here’s some things I’m seriously crushing on this month. Currently coveting

I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see that line of star stickers grow! 🤩🤩 Do you use stickers to track your goals? Or maybe you love using them on letters and love notes and in your planner. Me too! 🙋‍♀️ Today I’ve got a giveaway for my fellow sticker lovers. (And yes, there are star stickers too. ⭐️⭐️) Can you even handle all these stickers?
