We’ve got a delicious meal plan for you this week! A couple easy weeknight meals, my favorite way to cook chicken, the most delicious looking pasta, and pizza as a patty melt! Plus, nachos, waffles, and pie!
It’s going to be a delicious week!
Make sure you print the grocery list before you head to the store!

Today I’m heading up to Salt Lake City (OMGMOUNTAINS! I might just stay forever!) for a conference so I have to stick with my tradition of posting a cocktail on days when I fly.
I actually really enjoy flying but I’m also that person that has a minor panic attack with every bump. Which is why we talk cocktails on days that I fly. Because I’ll probably spend most of the flight wishing I had one.
The conference is going to be so much fun though. I’m rooming with my bestie Nicole and we coordinated our flights so that we land at the same time and can navigate SLC together. And there is going to be SO MUCH FOOD. I plan on gaining at least 10 pounds.
Seriously excited to get there. Follow me on instagram and snapchat (amandalivesay) to keep up!
This is the easiest fancy-ish cocktail you’ll ever make.
The rosemary makes it fancy, right?
I think so. Rosemary makes everything look fancy.
It’s just pineapple, rosemary, a bottle of sparkling wine, and some ginger ale. That’s it! It’s so pretty and so tasty and perfectly refreshing for hot summer days.
I’m headed to Salt Lake City tomorrow and I need restaurant, doughnut shop, coffee shop, whatever recommendations. I’ll be staying downtown and will be Uber-ing everywhere so help a girl out.
More on that tomorrow, though.
I made these cookies a few weeks ago because I was out of butter and don’t you always crave cookies when you’re out of butter?
And, of course, it was the weekend so I wasn’t about to take all 3 kids to the grocery store just for butter.
Coconut oil makes excellent cookies though! Seriously, my new favorite recipe. The coconut oil gives just the tiniest hint of coconut to the cookies. And they’re perfect if you’re dairy-free – just make sure the chocolate chips or chunks you use are also dairy free!
Happy Monday, guys! Let’s make this week a good one.
I celebrated a special anniversary this weekend.
One of my besties has lived with me for a year now:
Can you believe it’s been a year since I stalked the rescue group for a week before deciding to go pick her up?!
In the last year she’s… broken her leg, roadtripped through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, torn up a lot of cardboard boxes, grown 3 times the size the vet thought she’d be, and walked around the neighborhood approximately a million times.
I made these Peanut Butter Dog Doughnuts to celebrate her special day.
They have bananas, peanut butter, honey… you know, all the good stuff. Plus a Greek yogurt frosting and crumbled dog treats on top to look like sprinkles.
I can’t say for certain how tasty they are but the dogs seemed to enjoy them!
PS. You could totally bake these as cupcakes if you don’t have a doughnut pan. Just bake for 20 – 22 minutes instead.
