Friday Five: Currently Pinning

If you haven’t already caught the Pinterest wave, you totally should. I could spend hours skimming through for recipe ideas, daydreaming about vacations I can’t afford, or apartment decor that would look ridiculous in my shoebox-sized apartment. I think that’s why it’s so addicting fun, because it’s like a little virtual escape, even if only for a few minutes. Here are some recipes that I’ve been eying on Pinterest lately and plan to make at one of many barbecues to be enjoyed at my parents’ new home in Rhode Island next week! If you aren’t already following me on Pinterest, please do so here!

1. Summertime Watermelon Punch from Perpetually Chic 

There’s nothing like biting into a cool, juicy slice of watermelon on a hot day, so this watermelon punch sounds like the ultimate refreshment.

2. Panzanella with Summer Vegetables & Basil via Channeling Contessa

I love the rustic and casual feel of a panzanella salad, and this version with heirloom tomatoes and basil is the perfect summer twist.

3. Roasted Summer Vegetable Mac + Cheese from How Sweet It Is

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to give up on hearty comfort food. This roasted vegetable version is the perfect compromise for these hotter months.

4. Marinated Greek Chicken Tostadas from How Sweet It Is

I’ve mentioned before my infatuation with Greece and Greek food. I love everything about these tostadas, from the whipped feta to the crispy tortillas.

5. Cappuccino Pops from Cupcakes & Cashmere

After mint chocolate chip, coffee ice cream is my ultimate favorite flavor. Not only are these cappuccino pops adorable, but would make the perfect cool pick-me-up for an afternoon cookout.
