Friday Favorites

{these babies are coming soon. hint, hint: watermelon, coconut, mint}

Happy Friday! I am almost completely in summer mode now. Almost, but not quite. I officially have 4 days left of school, well after today, so in teacher lingo that basically means 4 days of professional babysitting. Oh, and packing up the classroom. And I strangely love packing up and reorganizing my classroom, so this time of year is always extra fun for me.

This is also my last week in Durham for the summer since we’ll be moving back to DC for a few months for Nate’s internship. I’ve basically been in DC mode since we locked down our apartment a few weeks ago and am so excited to be back “home”. So many things to look forward to and one short week to conquer. Let’s do it!

But not without some delicious food. That goes without saying. Here are some favorites from the past two weeks. Bloggers, you’ve outdone yourselves, as usual!

this is an oldie, but it is seriously the mother of all baked oatmeal casseroles

and these carrot cake overnight oats? i can’t even.

pineapple guacamole? i love it. and i’m making it pronto.

my obsession with spring rolls continues— with these soba noodle summer rolls

I have been eating pistachios by the bagful lately, so of course I want to try this pistachio hummus

ummm, roasted broccoli crostini with sun-dried tomato hummus— sign me up!

I’ve heard all about this fresh pineapple dole whip at Disney and love this simple recipe for it

love the freshness of this summer blast salad with avocado

I have been drooling over these buffalo falafel with vegan tzatziki ranch sauce all week

adding these cabernet portabella burgers to the “make asap” list!

these double chocolate shortcakes look like the perfect summer dessert

this blueberry coconut crisp is a thing of beauty


Hi, I’m Liz and this is my food blog where I share my love of healthy foods and whole ingredients. You will find mostly vegetarian dishes, plenty of sweets, and lots of love from this little kitchen in Durham, North Carolina!


  1. 1. That smoothie/milkshake looks AMAZING! I cannot wait to get my hands on the recipe!
    2. Thank you for including my Pineapple Guacamole in your roundup! It’s one of our favorite recipes 🙂
    Have an awesome weekend, Liz!

    • Of course! It looks seriously delish 🙂 I promise it’ll be up soon…
