Hi Everyone! It’s been some time since I shared some of my favorite things. Enjoy!
I’m not usually a huge fan of mixes, but sometimes (when its the end of school and you don’t even want to look at six bags of gluten-free flour!!) you cave in. I was super surprised to see this new brand that has an amazing short list of ingredients and actually tastes yummy too! Here’s a picture of the finished chocolate muffin mix: They are available at several different online stores–and they have crackers also!
Next is ice cream! I have a weak spot for ice cream and while it is fairly simple to make it, I’ve been buying it occasionally because of time. Have you heard of Ben & Jerry’s diary free ice cream? I have to say it is really amazing–one of my favorite flavors ever actually. Unfortunately, the Chunky Monkey flavor is the only one that is gluten-free. Maybe there will be more in the future!
I seriously have an issue with pens–when I have a favorite you should really not try to borrow it. I have been known to raise my voice if you try! I’m working on it, but after years of working with the public I know how often pens come back! I didn’t know I needed a new pen, but this one has a super fine point and is amazing for writing in the tiny spaces of my planner.
Speaking of planners, I recently discovered Inkwell Press. I had a credit to use in their store and I wasn’t sure what to think at first. I purchased the Weekly Kick-start notepad and I am in love. It’s made the past few weeks so much easier with the end of school crazies and getting everyone on the same page–literally! The paper is so nice and thick I can write on with sharpies if I want to and not have it bleed through.
And finally–coffee! When I’ve been drinking hot coffee I’ve been using the Starbucks Via Brew. Which are delightful, but a bit of a strain on the budget. I decided to give a French press coffee pot a try. It has been lovely to get the strong dark coffee taste with a fraction of the cost. It is a bit to have to wash it–just so you are forewarned, but I still love the taste that I am willing to add another chore to my list.
What about you? What have been your favorite things for the past month? Do you think you will try any of my favorite things?
