Tastetastic Thursday 8/16

We’re headed to the beach for the day this weekend and I can’t wait to show Carter the ocean. I think he’s going to be really impressed and have a great time. We’ve been so busy all summer that we just haven’t had time to get there (it’s about 3 hours or so away) but we’re finally going to make it happen this weekend.  If it doesn’t rain.

Any last-weeks-of-summer plans for you guys?

Here are three recipes that spoke to me last week:

No-Bake Energy Balls from Healthy Kitchen Guide, Tomato Basil Quiche with Potato Crust from Now Things are Cookin’, and Sweet Summer Berry Cobbler from Thank Your Body

Who’s ready to party? The rules are simple:

  1. Please link up no more than two recipes.
  2. I’d love it if you’d follow me using the social media icons on the right sidebar.
  3. Please have a link back to me on your post. I’ll be featuring three links next week, but I can only feature you if there’s a link back.
  4. Click around, have some fun, and get inspired!
(As always, the links show up in random order. No rewards for the early birds, or punishments for those who get there a little later.)

    This week I am sharing raw Mexican vegan chocolate ice cream and a dairy free, gluten free, vegan lasagna. What perfect, healthy meal!

    Have a great week.

    it takes you 3 hours to get to the ocean?? seriously?? oh! after the move to toronto i fear i’ll be in the same boat. or lack thereof, obviously.

    this week i’ve shared a recipe inspired by a recent trip to Toronto: Pan seared halibut with fresh from the market peas, seasonal baby potatoes, and an herb white wine vinaigrette. so friggin good.

    p.s. The Wednesday Fresh Foods Blog Hop is still happening – you’re all welcome to stop by Gastronomical Sovereignty and link up your seasonal posts if you like! we’d love to have you!

    Both my husband and I were spoiled growing up by the ocean. We never bring our kids, but we do spend time on a lake in Adirondack Mountains of NY. We will return again before the kids go back to school.

    Thank you for featuring my Energy Balls this week! I appreciate it.

    You are so lucky to live relatively close to the ocean. I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend. We are going to go on a picnic and do some hiking this weekend. Nothing major but a nice day together before the kids start back to school next week.
