Toast topped with creamy burrata, fresh peaches, mint, and a drizzle of honey lemon dressing. Add a pinch of salt to each peach burrata toast to elevate the flavor.
We’re already more than halfway through July!
Summer is passing by super ridiculously fast this year. Maybe it’s because every few days I have something planned. It is definitely starting to take it’s toll. But I love that there’s always something to look forward to.
Blueberries and raspberries blended with frozen bananas until creamy served over overnight chia pudding. This braspberry layered chia pudding is delicious and refreshing, perfect for warm summer days.
I’m hoping you’re enjoying your summer days. It’s been so nice lately with the mostly wonderful weather. And living in San Francisco, there are so many events that take place every single week! Lately, I’ve been trying to get out there to explore and do new things. The latest was NightGarden Piano.
It’s been such a busy July so far. I feel like I have an event happening every few days and it’s starting to take a little bit of a toll even though I’m super excited for all of it. Earlier this week, I actually got the chance to meet Jules, the founder of Matcha SF and Matcha Fest, to chat and learn how she went about growing her business and her social media following. We had matcha cream pie and matcha lattes while we chatted. lol.
And today, after work, I’m attending NightGarden Piano at the SF Botanical Gardens. Just picture lit pathways, pianos being played in the park, and dinner from local food trucks. I’m sooo excited! Lol. I’m definitely share pictures when I get the chance!
Lemonade sweetened with blueberry simple syrup. This blueberry lemonade is so refreshing and one of my new summer favorites.
Another half week has gone by and it’s already the middle of July. Time seems to slip by so fast lately. I’m not sure if it’s because I have so much planned during the weekends this summer or if it’s like that for everyone else. Do you feel like summer is passing by so fast?
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! I normally have Wednesdays off so I didn’t have an extra day from work. But…. my whole family was off so we spent the day in San Jose. Doing a lot of eating. But then again, what else can you expect from me and my family? Lol.
Here were some of the things we ordered. And afterwards… we were in a food coma. Lol.
Creamy steel cut oatmeal with swirls of blueberry jam in every bite. This blueberries and cream steel cut oatmeal is so delicious and the perfect breakfast for summer.
Just one more day until the 4th of July! Do you have plans for the day? Are you lucky enough to get extra days off for the holiday? I’m usually off on Wednesdays so technically I don’t get the holiday off. But I’m at least hoping to be able to relax and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts.
In the mean time, let’s talk about this blueberries and cream steel cut oatmeal.
Fresh blueberries cooked with sugar and water until it thickens into jam. This quick and easy small batch blueberry jam is delicious and perfect for summer.
I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! Can you believe that it’s already the first day of July? Summer is moving fast! Are you celebrating the 4th of July early this year? Or are you waiting until next weekend to celebrate? Even if you’re not celebrating, it’s the perfect time to go out there and enjoy the sunshine. Maybe it’s at the park or the beach, but it’s definitely the perfect weather for the outdoors.
And can we talk about how amazingly sweet and juicy and huge blueberries are during the summer? So obsessed with them. So of course that means that I have to use them in every way that I can while they are readily available.
Just the other day, I went to Home SF, a cute little cafe with an extensive latte and toast menu. I decided that I wanted to try this lavender jasmine tea latte, a mochi muffin, and a Thai tea custard cake. They’re all sooo good. The texture of the mochi muffin and Thai tea custard cake were just so amazing.
Classic caprese salad tossed with nectarines, peaches, cherries, and apricots. This stone fruit caprese salad is so delicious and refreshing and filled with summer vibes.
Who is excited for stone fruit season?
I know I am! As soon as it’s almost summer, I’m hitting the farmer’s market looking for my favorite peaches and nectarines. Of course, there’s the cherries and the apricots and apriums too. So many different fruits to choose from and to eat my way through.
