Everything I've been enjoying this month!
Omg - this one is SUCH a hit always!! If you are looking for an easy dessert to bring, look no further! Crunchy on the top, soft everywhere else, this Cinnamon Crunch Quick Bread is made with maple syrup, yogurt, and white chocolate chips, then swirled with cinnamon sugar. Top this quick loaf with a cinnamon CRUNCH topping and bake away. 
I was looking for an easy recipe that didn't require me to go to the store. Miraculously, I had all  I had all the ingredients for this delicious Half Baked Harvest recipe. It was pretty easy and didn't take long to make. My daughter HATED it, but we LOVED it. My son even asked for a second helping, which never happens. I don't usually love chicken dishes, but this One Skillet Tzatziki Chicken and Orzo was delicious. 
I just got these and they are as comfortable as they are cute. I took my usual size and the waist was a little snug (as reviews mentioned), but the back is elastic so it gives a little more. I wore them with a racerback black tank, but am excited to dress them up in different ways this summer. They are the perfect weight and could probably be worn all year long. I am got these olive green ones, but am considering getting the khaki color too. 
This may be my most boring recommendation yet (and am fully an old lady for this one), but the dental hygienist suggested it at my last dentist appointment. She said it's the only one she uses and the only one that really works that well. After using it for about a month, I must say (and I can't believe I am saying this) I really like it! I have tightly packed teeth (probably from so much clenching and grinding) and this floss never frays or breaks. It does an amazing job at getting plague and stuff from your teeth because it expands when it's being used. Highly recommend drTung's Smart Floss!

I imagine anyone I talk to on a regular basis is already well aware how much I like this book, but I need you all to read it too! It's not my typical read, but I LOVED it either way. 

Almost Famous meets Daisy Jones & The Six in this "delightful" (New York Times Book Review) novel about a fourteen-year-old girl’s coming of age in 1970s Baltimore, caught between her straight-laced family and the progressive family she nannies for—who happen to be secretly hiding a famous rock star and his movie star wife for the summer.

Over the course of the summer, Mary Jane introduces her new household to crisply ironed clothes and a family dinner schedule, and has a front-row seat to a liberal world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll (not to mention group therapy). Caught between the lifestyle she’s always known and the future she’s only just realized is possible, Mary Jane will arrive at September with a new idea about what she wants out of life, and what kind of person she’s going to be. I wish I could read it for the first time again!

You probably know that already if you follow #worthybookclub on Instagram. Feel free to read with me!

I hope you enjoyed this one and would love to hear your favorite products, recipes and books!
