April Favorites | Making Thyme for Health

Happy first day of May! Do you guys have any fun plans this month?

We’re heading home to see family so that should be exciting. I’m also hoping we get a chance to go to the springs or the beach while we’re there. I haven’t been in years and have been dying to go. I really miss the water. But we’ll see!

Whatever this month has in store for you, I hope you find time to relax and enjoy it! Until then, sit back and enjoy a round-up of my favorite recent finds!

************

Favorite Brunch Food: Spring Tea Sandwiches with Sunflower Dill Spread. How beautiful are these little sandwiches? I feel like they would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch!

 

Favorite Easy Meal: Hummus Quesadillas. I love this dairy-free hack on veggie quesadillas. I bet they would be even better dipped in some Hemp Ranch Dressing…YUM.

 

Favorite Rainy Day Food: Peanut Lentil Curry. We’ve had quite a few rainy days this spring and it’s sent my curry cravings into overdrive. This one looks super creamy and easy to make!

 

Favorite Book: What Alice Forgot. The the storyline of this book is genius and left me constantly anticipating what would happen next. However, I felt like the book could have been shortened by at least 50 pages. The author spent a lot of time on the main character’s sister which didn’t really add much to the story for me. Still a great read though!

 

Favorite Scent: Aveda Light the Way Candle. Is anyone else obsessed with the smell of Aveda products? I go crazy for them! I recently picked up one of their Light the Way Candles and it smells incredible. Plus each purchase helps bring clean water to those in need. It’s a win-win situation.

 

Favorite Home Decor: Circular Mirrors. I don’t know what it is but I can’t get enough of circular mirrors lately. I just think they add such a pretty balance above fireplaces, benches and walkways. Definitely going to pick up one for our future home some day.

 

Favorite Cleaning Tool: Lodge Scrub Brush. For the longest time I’ve been using sea salt and a rag to clean my cast iron but I still had a hard time getting little bits to come loose. That was until I got this scrub brush. You guys, it works so good. I wish I would have gotten one sooner. I highly recommend it if you cook with cast iron on the regular!

Favorite Beauty Product: Andalou Naturals Pumpkin Glycolic Mask. I feel like I talk about this brand in every favorites post but I can’t help it. They make the best stuff and this mask is no exception. It instantly refreshes my skin and leaves it glowing all day long.

 

Favorite Show: Planet Earth II. Have you guys seen this show yet? We watched a couple of episodes when Brandon’s dad came to visit us last month and it’s freaking incredible. The footage of the wildlife will take your breath away!

 

Favorite Cookie: Salted Dark Chocolate Pretzel Cookies. These cookies look like a sweet & salty dream come true! They’re also gluten-free and refined sugar-free, assuming you use GF pretzels. Looks like I need to do some baking very soon…
