Monthly Favorites | August

1. Here I am again talking about a kitchen item in my favorites’ list, but I beg you, if you don’t own a steaming basket*, get your hands on one. It’s so much easier to cook certain vegetables (like beans, broccoli, etc.) in a steaming basket than in water.

2. I don’t know about your gym clothes, but mine stink (especially after they sat in my gym bag for a few hours), so I invested in Molly’s Suds Sports Wash* to take care of the odor.

3. I’ve been a big fan of gnocchi recently. The regular potato kind, the sweet potato kind and most recently the cauliflower kind. Have you picked these* up at Trader Joe’s? You should.

4. My friend Tanja went to Aldi the other day (no, we still don’t have one nearby – don’t ask!) and sent me Schogetten* just because and it just made me so happy, a) because I have such a sweet friend, b) Schogetten are delicious and c) they remind me of home.

5. I’ve been craving ice-cold chocolate milk this month and Nesquick* is my favorite.

6. In case you are not using a password manager app yet (who doesn’t?), I’d like to recommend Dashlane* to you. It’s a great app that really keeps all your passwords straight and makes logging into websites a breeze.

7. I recently got this Method Body Wash* Coconut-Rice Milk-Shea Butter with one of my Grove.Co* shipments and I just love the smell of this body wash so much. It lathers up real nice, too.

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. I might have to look into Dashlane. I have so many passwords to keep straight! LOL Oh gosh, I used to love chocolate milk but I haven’t had any in about a year and a half now.


    1. Dashlane is really cool – you can use it on the Desktop and there is an app, too. So useful!

  2. Oooh, I love your roundup! I haven’t tried the cauliflower gnocchi yet, but I love the regular kind so will have to pick this up. Also! I live right by an Aldi now! I haven’t been yet, but hoping to go grocery shopping in the next week and will look for these chocolates :) also had no idea that method made body washes—great find! Xoxo and hope you are enjoying your weekend, San!

    1. You live by an Aldi! OMG, I am so jealous. Curious to hear what you think!

  3. My clothes stink too! lol! I’ve been using Molly’s Suds forever. I really like their products.

    1. I am glad i am not the only one… haha…. Molly’s Suds are a life saver ;)

  4. The cauliflower gnocchi sounds so good but my hunch is that it’s not GF. Booo! I would love something like that as I love gnocchi and have a couple of good gnocchi-based recipes that we make in the summer and fall. There is a good GF gnocchi at a specialty grocery store near us but it’s so pricey and it does not reheat well so I don’t make it very often.

    My favorite thing from the past month was fresh tomatoes and cucumbers from my garden. My garden has been a bit neglected this year as I have struggled to find the time to get over there but my tomatoes and cucumbers did pretty well!

    1. From the ingredient list, it looks like these cauliflower gnoocchis are GF. ( CAULIFLOWER, CASSAVA FLOUR, POTATO STARCH, EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL, SEA SALT.)
