A Bowl Full of Simple | Friday Favorites

Happy Weekend!  What do you have planned for the 3 -day weekend?  We are making our final summer trip to Lake Tahoe.  Looking forward to seeing my favorite blue water, spending time in the sunshine with good friends and savoring the last drops of summer fun.  I’ve rounded up a few of my simple favorites for this last weekend of summer.  I hope you enjoy them.

The Best-Ever BBQ Ribs that are incredibly delicious and simple to make.

Best new cookbook I’ve been sinking my teeth into lately, literally!

This sweater is the perfect weight for the transition to cooler late summer evenings.

My type of cocktail!

Figs are on my mind this week, try this easy appetizer.

Another birthday, another chocolate cake.

Have a lovely weekend.

Needless to say, I knew there would be no time for mom’s typical creations and hired some help for the first time for one of my kids’ birthday parties.  We’ve had fairy parties, baseball parties (x2), swim […]
