Today I’m going to share a delicious meal I’ve found myself making on the regular this summer: Avocado Toast Sandwich.
I’ve been trying to eat a little healthier lately because, well, swimsuit season. But, this sandwich is so good, you’ll make it even when you’re not trying to be good. Plus, it’s great for picnics and on-the go lunches…which is great, because it feels like we’re always on the go.

Today I’m going to share a new recipe inspired by a new healthy dish I recently whipped up. The chicken dish is baked with a Mediterranean salsa spooned over the top. This salsa is so good I find myself sneaking an extra spoonful or two with crackers or chips before I bake the rest.
Then I got to thinking…with the football season really heating up, how could I turn this goodness into a shareable appetizer? I’ll tell you how: Baked Mediterranean Feta Dip.

This week I decided to solve that problem by prepping one of my favorite breakfast recipes for the week: Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash Hash.

Moms who want to get in and out of the kitchen quickly, you’re going to love these vanilla almond sugar cookies! The texture of soft almond sugar cookies just can’t be beat and they are so simple to make.
As you may or may not know, I am not the girl who will make a recipe twice if it’s complicated. Not only that, but I tend to ruin sugar cookies. Yes, it’s true. They came out dry, thin, and don’t even get me started on the way my cut out cookies would look when they didn’t hold their shape!
Let’s just say the kids were not impressed. If you have a history of sugar cookie Pinterest fails like me – there is hope. These sugar cookies with almond extract are here to save your baking reputation.
Why I Love These Soft Almond Sugar Cookies
Recently I attended a holiday party at my friend’s house and she kindly passed the recipe to me when she noticed I couldn’t. stop. eating. them. Oh my gosh, the flavor!
They were perfect vanilla almond sugar cookies. Soft, thick, and just a little chewy. There are so many creative ways to decorate them too!
My favorite part of this recipe is that this dough doesn’t have to be refrigerated before cutting out cookie shapes – it’s perfect for impatient bakers like me! Or, you know, your kids. Ahem.
As soon as I got my hands on that recipe, I had to try making them myself. So easy. The kids loved making the different Christmas shapes and decorating them and the time spent together in the kitchen was a total mom win.
