Nine Favorite Things |

Can you all believe it’s the last Sunday of June? Next week is the 4th of July, and I am in awe of how fast this summer is going by. After almost two weeks away from home, I’ll be heading back on Tuesday. But before I do, I’ve got a couple of fun days here in NYC. Today is all about the Anthropologie workshop and book signing. So excited to see some of you NYC followers! If you’re interested in attending, check out the details here. The workshop is from 11am-12pm and the book signing directly follows!

Also, if any of you have any recommendations on places to visit while here in NYC, please let me know in the comments. I might have a little time while here for some shopping and exploring!

Coming up this week on HBH we have a summery peach crostini that will be perfect for 4th of July entertaining, an all American dessert, a brand new grill recipe, and a new favorite pasta recipe that everyone is going to love.

If you missed anything from the previous week and would like to have them all delivered, at once, directly to your inbox, sign up for our newsletter that goes out daily with brand new recipes!  Sign up here. And of course, if you’re meal planning for the week ahead, don’t forget to check my menu below (it’s #9 on the list!).

1. A few Of My Favorite Photos from Vacation.

I had so much fun the past couple of weeks with my family. As I write this portion of the post, I am sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight to NYC and already missing everyone. We’ve gone from Turks and Caicos, to George Town, to Staniel Cay, and then over to Nassau on my Grandpa’s boat. It was the most amazing way to see the Caribbean and the Bahamas, and I had the best time with my family. Feeling so grateful for the time we all were able to spend together, but so sad to be leaving them.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from this past week and half. Let me know if I should try and put together a full trip recap with all the places we visited and some info about them.

6. Most Popular Recipe of June.

Honey Strawberry Muffins | #breakfast #summerrecipes #strawberries #muffins

Hands down these Honey Strawberry Muffins.

So many of you have made these and loved them. These muffins are perfect for using up all those summer strawberries, or any other berry you pick up at the market this summer. Blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries would all be amazing in place of the strawberries, or do a triple berry muffin and use them all! Either way they will be delicious.
