Thanks for joining me for another Nine Favorite Things post.

Nine Favorite Things | halfbakedharvest.com

More and more, I am getting messages about how HBH recipes have touched your lives in ways I could never have imagined. When I open up my DM’s on Instagram, read through blog comments, and even my emails, I am taken back each day. I am so shocked by some of the stories you all have left me. I can’t tell you how much these DM’s, comments, and emails mean to me. They truly make each and every day of hard work more than worth it.

When reading your messages, at first, I almost feel guilty. Guilty, because I’m really not sure I’m not good enough to be receiving such kind words. Some of you might say that’s crazy, but that is the true Tieghan talking. I am my hardest critic, and I don’t think that will ever change. Regardless, I could not love reading your messages more. I’ll spend hours at night, staying up waaay too late, trying to get through my DM’s on Instagram. Because I know you guys took the time to send me a photo, or to write me a note. And I truly LOVE seeing and hearing from you all. It. Is. The. BEST!

Really, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for reading each day, thank you for commenting. Thank you for making my recipes, and thank you for sharing your creations with me through Instagram. I love being able to share so much with you guys!

And with that…

Coming up this week on HBH, Monday is all about a brand new instant pot recipe that’s so simple, but sooo delicious. There will be a little Mexican to switch things up on Tuesday. On Wednesday I’ll be sharing a fresh take on salmon. And on Thursday,  an easy sheet pan meal prep recipe that you will love. Of course, Friday will have something chocolatey, but also sugar-free. All the good things to look forward to.

Lastly, if you missed anything from this past week, be sure to sign up for our newsletter here. Hope you’re all having the best weekend, and enjoy this Sunday’s Favorites!

1. Inspiring Me This Week. 

Arielle Charnas of Something Navy.

If you follow any fashion blogs/influencers than you know Arielle, or you know of her brand, Something Navy. I’ve only been following her (and now her team too) for the last year or so, but in that year, I’ve watched her grow her brand into a multi million dollar company. Following her on Instagram is not only incredibly inspiring as a young entrepreneur, but it’s also just fun. Arielle is very raw and real. She doesn’t hold anything back. And she isn’t afraid to share her struggles, successes, tips, and everything in between. It’s so refreshing to see content that’s actually genuine, and not overly edited.

And above all else, I love her laid back style. She’s very much all about a good pair of jeans and a white tee. But then she can just as easily dress up workwear, or put together the perfect date night look. If you love fashion or learning about business, she’s a must follow on Instagram.

Check out Something Navy on the blog or on Instagram. A couple of my favorite posts…

3. Some of My Favorite Dishes. 

One of the questions I get asked most often is where I buy my dishes. The answer? Anywhere and everywhere. My favorite places are from vintage shops with handmade pieces. I buy from artists all over the world (think Australia, London, and Italy!) that I contact through Instagram. Below are some of my favorites from easier to find locations in the U.S. Enjoy!
