Outfit of the Day: August 11, 2016

Le Tote subscription box is awesome! This week, I received the Ava ruffle front shirt. The lightweight fabric makes it perfect for a hot Las Vegas day.

I decided to pair it with a Noir pencil skirt, from Le Tote and Guess wedge heels from Ross Dress For Less.

Marley Spoon Meal Delivery Subscription Box

Have you heard that Martha Stewart, lifestyle guru, has entered the meal delivery subscription box business?

The company is called Marley Spoon. When you sign up, you will receive recipes and portioned and fresh ingredients for 3 meals. Marley Spoon gives you the option to remove and add meals or skip a week.

Since dinnertime is just the 2 of us, this is a nice way to enjoy a restaurant quality meal for $10.25 per serving.


Grilled Romaine & Steak Salad with Lemon-Grana Padano Dressing
~ hubby really enjoyed this one! I had my plate without dressing and cheese.



Honey-Mustard Chicken with Potato, Celery and Apple Salad ~ the potato, celery and apple salad was amazing!



While I enjoyed preparing the meal, no one was a fan of the Miso Cod and Bamboo Rice.

Aren't They Lovely?!

The girls stopped by this weekend decked in colorful barrettes and a floral headband! I couldn't help myself so I grabbed the camera and took a few photos!

Back in The Day Bakery Made With Love Cookbook!

I love reading cookbooks, especially cookbooks dedicated to baking!

Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love written by Cheryl and Griffith Day is a beautiful and delightful book. The couple own a Southern American bakery in Savannah, GA.

The turquiose color and cover design makes me want to keep it on the kitchen table for all to see! I actually started craving cake while reading this book!

It's full of made from scratch recipes, baking techniques and baking theme DIY projects! The pie recipes, like Strawberry Tart and Georgia Peach pie will have you reaching for your rolling pin.

As a newbie baker, I appreciated the cake assembling and frosting tips. The cookie design is a must see with the holiday season quickly approaching.

Did I mention that the book cover beautifully matches my KitchenAid stand up mixer? Love it.
