Best of June 2014 + A New Summer Playlist!

No weekend recap today! Instead I’ll be recapping the whirlwind that was June. Did June actually happen? If it weren’t for the blog giving me proof that I actually do things, I’d question whether or not I am just dreaming this year away.

best of June For the record, this weekend involved a whole lot of cleaning and proof that my supposed wisdom from yesterday’s post is in fact false. Turns out I haven’t found that “happy point” with drinking. Sunday was fun.

Not surprisingly, I’ve had a few more write-off Sundays since I made it my mission to include more drink recipes on the blog in June. 2 for the blog + 2 for the ecookbook means there’s a descent chance I may still be drunk as I’m typing this…just kidding…kind of.

Okay enough joking around, let’s recap June!

your June favs Thanks to a very lucky feature in The Huffington Post, this Spinach and Ricotta Zucchini Ravioli (aka Zavioli) had a pretty epic month. 20 000+ people read this post. Mind blown.

Spinach and Ricotta Zucchini Ravioli // I’m happy you guys liked these Thai Turkey Sliders with Peanut Sauce because they were probably my favourite recipe from June too! I’m also kind of obsessed with the pictures.

Thai Turkey Sliders with Peanut Sauce I don’t blame you for not wanting to turn on your oven either. These No-Bake Chocolate Blueberry Bars are the perfect summer snack and will be accompanying me on my trip to Yellowstone!

No-Bake Chocolate Blueberry Bars If this Blackberry Mojito recipe didn’t make the top 5 in June I would have been upset…and drank 5 of these to make up for it.

Sugar-Free Blackberry Mojito // And for the first month ever, savoury won out over sweet with this Apricot Barbecue Chicken! Now that I know to turn the gas on when attempting to BBQ, expect more BBQ recipes next month.

Apricot Barbecue Chicken Onto my June favs! This month was good to me, for obvious reasons that I also suspect you’re sick of hearing about…

Speaking of my summer bucket list, I can also cross off pop champagne on a boat with this girl. And by boat I mean canoe and by champagne I mean propel. My trip to Minneapolis has so far been the highlight of my year. I love it there.

Me and Lee These Red White and Blueberry Pancakes were super fun to shoot and I cannot wait to make them again on the 4th! AMURICA.

Red White and Blueberry Pancakes // #4thofJuly And in the blogging tips area I finally got around to publishing Part 2 on my Social Media for Newbie Bloggers series. I’m glad you guys found the tips helpful!

Social Media For Newbie Bloggers part 2 July begins tomorrow and I am SO looking forward to it. Lots of fun things to come and a much needed vacation is taking up the majority of it.

coming up in july -A two week trip out West. I’ll be in Park City, Utah, Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. Suggestions welcome!

-My first video! Wish me luck…

-Bringing back the fitness! Working out hasn’t been a priority for me these past few months but I’m making an effort to workout a few times a week and hopefully include more posts on this.

-What you’ll be listening to for the next month. This playlist got me through June so I thought I would share it with you. I miss making playlists for you guys! Should I start posting more of them?

    That apricot chicken was the highlight of my June. (Kidding, but it was one of my best homemade meals of June.) My highlight of June was Portland (duh) followed by Bey & Jay (another duh). Currently listening to this playlist love itttt & you.

    PS probably going to be mixing up lots of Healthy Maven drinks this week whoooop.
