08/31 CHEERS to August

31 Aug

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone has been having a fun-filled and relaxing summer! I know I sure have {hence being very MIA, sorry again} I figured it being the last day of August, sad I know, we should celebrate the month rather than being depressed it is leaving us. Here are some fun recipes and ideas to try before it’s too late!

Raspberry Limoncelle Pro

Sip of this delicious {and easy} drink with friends and family talking about your favourite August memories. The Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco is bubbly and fresh. Thanks Damn Delicious for the inspiration!

Buy some peaches! The end of August is a perfect time to buy them as it is peek season for this fruit and you can use them in so many ways. Peach smoothies, peach pies, peach salad, peach glaze on pork, peach crumble or my fave peach jam. Credit to Buttered Side Up for the pic and click for her Peach Jam Recipe!

DEFINITELY have a BBQ. I know in a month from now we are all going to missing those nights when you throw a burger and corn on the cob on the barbie. Try these BBQ shrimp wrapped in prosciutto by the Sassy Kitchen!

Lastly, breathe. Enjoy these final moments of summer and soak it all in before that cold fall wind blows in. Be thankful for another summer of laughter and adventures. Happy August 31st!

That Hump Day Treat

11 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

Seeing as it is hump day it seems only right to bake yourself up a little something yummy with chocolate! This recipe I found through a blog called Just A Taste , which they have many delicious food inspiration and a helpful search index. Pecans are probably one of my favourite nuts and they work so perfectly in many baking recipes such as this, but also in cookies, granola and salads. This recipe in particular doesn’t require many crazy ingredients and is fast to prepare making it an easy dish to whip up last minute for guests. I hope you all are having a fabulous week and this only makes it sweeter xx Glamour Planner
