A refreshing way to use up your garden’s herbs this summer, the garden rambler tastes eerily similar to a tequila-based mojito with a lovely pineapple simple syrup and anise-flavored chartreuse to up the flavor ante.

Who has two thumbs and is DONE with residency?

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

I start fellowship on Monday and am SO excited to never have to work another night or 24 hour call again. To celebrate I made some fun cocktails yesterday and we have a PACKED weekend coming up. Today we’re seeing Toy Story 4 in the morning, then hanging out with some friends in the afternoon, and tomorrow my siblings are coming over.

Oh, and there will be pie. OF COURSE. How could there not be??

Here’s what we’ve got on this week’s meal plan!

  • grilled portobello mushroom fajitas – these look like a party!!!
  • falafel burgers – yuuuuuuummmmmm
  • slow cooker loaded baked sweet potatoes – so many of my favorite things here
  • southwest white bean veggie burgers – these are smothered in EVERYTHING!
  • greek chickpea salad pitas – so great for meal prep lunches!!

Happy eating!

The EASIEST chipotle black bean dip that is perfect for summer snacking! It comes together in a food processor within minutes and is the perfect blend of savory, smoky, and spicy.

Hummus has been my go to since forever, but it’s kind of old news. I pretty much never have time to make a homemade version (my favorite recipe requires cooking chickpeas from scratch and then peeling them, which is so not conducive to low stress party preparations) so I’m always buying the same mediocre storebought one. (Could someone just start putting more tahini in their hummus, KTHANKSBYE)

I can invent a reason as to why every season is actually pie season, and I extend that open-ended invitation to galettes as well.
