Summer Festivities: Recipe Roundup

Ok so I know we just had the June roundup yesterday, but with today being Canada Day and 4th of July on Friday, it seemed necessary to do another one based on recipes that are perfect for summer festivities.  Summer is definitely my favourite time of year, I have always dreamed about living in a place that gets sun and warmth all year round.  Luckily, Vancouver has surprisingly somewhat met this dream of mine this year.  Maybe not so warm, but our weather has been great. Exactly one year ago today I moved into a new apartment in a new city and just over a year ago I started a new job.  With all the changes that happened, I felt like I really didn’t get to enjoy summer 2013 as much as I could have.  So here is to making the most of the summer this year with some great recipes at your fingertips!

Amazing April: Recipe Roundup

Sometimes it feels like days are going by so slowly and sometimes you wake up feeling like yesterday was the first day of the year and it’s actually May.  That happened to me this morning.  I am so close to have been living and working in Vancouver for a year and yet I still feel like a newbie.  We’re going through some sort of heat wave here at the moment (24 degrees in April constitutes a heat wave in West Coast Canada) and I am LOVING it.  If today is a predictor for the rest of May it is sure to be a beautiful spring.  Of course as any Vancouverite knows, it could be raining in 5 minutes however I have a feeling we could be in for a lovely spring/summer.  While the weather wasn’t as great in April it was still an amazing month over here at Everybody Loves Pretty.  We continue to be exceedingly grateful for all the support and comment/like/follow love we’re getting over here.  So AGAIN (you’ll hear it a lot) thank you!
