So, this is definitely a cookbook, but more too. It’s a cookbook made for the basic to mid level cook. It’s a perfect French cookbook for those like me: culinary challenged, lacking decision making skills of what to cook, not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen. (BTW: I have tried a few of her recipes from her previous books and they have been easy to make and delicious.)
There are also a lot of French cooking tips and insights into how the French view and eat meals. Which is why I read this book entirely last night (excluding all the recipes) and am counting it as one of the 12 books I said I would read this year. 😉
I’m psyched about Elizabeth Bard’s third book. Her previous two books have been about her expat life in France with recipes included in each chapter. Based on internet intel, I think this book might be more of a cookbook, but I don’t care. I’m purchasing now!

I just found out about Bullet Journals and now that I know about it, I see it everywhere! This is a great idea for “list” people.
It´s basically an all in one agenda book. You hand make your journal which includes everything and anything you want or need: day/month planning; goals; inspirations; notes; dates, reminders, etc. The idea is that you make your planner in a format that works for you in a bulleted simple statement kinda way. I realized I partially do this already using the “Notes” section in the back of my calendar book, but not as thought out. I think Bullet Journaling is on to something.
Here’s a few of examples below. Let your creativity flow!
The video is worth a watch too. I like it a lot.

Layered rugs are trending now and the look helps give a room a finished look. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, its functional for:
Below are some popular rug combinations.
Jute rug + faux hide (or fur)

I have a drinking problem. Not alcoholic, but healthful. Is it possible to get out of control with daily healthy drinks? I’m beginning to wonder and so is my sloshing stomach Here is my daily consumption:
Warm water with lemon OR Apple Cider Vinegar
Morning Smoothie (including a plethora of powders)
Green Tea (probably 2-3 cups)
Then later I have my daily bottle of homemade Kombucha
A bottle of Topo Chico (carbonated mineral water)
A cup of Matcha with almond milk
More tea throughout the late afternoon/evening
And I’m thinking of starting a late night cup of Golden Milk (Turmeric benefits)
