I find myself browsing the web looking for adorable things to add to my kitchen on a regular basis. I thought today I would share three of my current favorites and how you can get them for your own kitchen. 1. Scoops of Flower Measuring Spoons from Modcloth Oh my gosh! The pink and yellow pastels put me in an instant good mood! I am having fantasies of measuring cinnamon, honey, turmeric, and buttermilk with these adorable little measuring spoons. I love the idea of having the measuring spoons displayed on the counter. No more wasted time digging through drawers to find the right spoon...

Hi, Friends! Welcome back to Monday Munchies where I share a simple recipe with you that uses basic ingredients found in your kitchen. On Saturday I went to Pepper Place Market and found these gems! I love tomatoes! What better to highlight each flavor than make a tangy cucumber salad? I grabbed a cucumber, lemon, and 2 types of basil from my garden (one of which is a spicy greek basil. Yum). Then I roughly chopped everhthing, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and squeezed the juice from one lemon on top. Have fun eating this tangy Cucumber Salad!

Thank you for joining me for Monday Munchies where I share with you an easy recipe you can make using ingredients you most likely already have in your kitchen. Today I will be sharing with you a simple way to dry fruit using just your oven. The flavor reminds me of fruit roll-ups! So, I guess this is a clean eating alternative! Enjoy. First preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Then slice your fruit to the thickness you prefer. Remember it will shrink up when you bake it, so go a little thicker than I did here. This first time was a learning experience for me. Then take a teaspoon of Coconut...
