In the wake of the 4th of July (my most favorite of all holidays), I feel slightly drained of summer excitement. Here are a few things that can help rejuvenate the rest of this season of heat and sunshine for you.
1. Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts. My family of 5 and our dog have spent the past year living in a tiny apartment as we anxiously await the completion of our new house. We have had to get creative with our cooking because the kitchen here doubles as a laundry room and a pantry…yeah, it’s that small. I am constantly on the look out for new dinner recipes that are quick and easy because we have minimal space in which to cook. This recipe transforms your average, bland chicken dinner into one with great flavor. I suggest pairing the chicken with some seasoned green beans and a side of instant rice. Voila! A simple, delicious meal to enjoy.

3. Kate Spade Watches. It’s an addiction. Kate Spade has come out with the most suave line of watches this summer that have left me wanting every single one. They are classy, can be dressed up or down, and are reasonably priced for such a fine accessory. Here is a picture of my favorite of all of the timepieces.
