Summer Cookies from Dean and Deluca…

I know… it’s been more than two weeks since I did an Avid Inspiration post… but since I’ve been under the weather I haven’t been able to compile the list of some of the blog posts out there that I find inspiring. I’m going to correct that now.

Welcome Home | Roasted Tomato BLT’s – I love tomatoes and any chance to use herbs, so this looks like a sandwich that is both delicious and easy to make.

The Pastry Affair | Berry Topped Angel Food Cake – The photography in this post is absolutely stunning. It also makes me lament the fact that our current kitchen is so completely un-photogetic. Some day we will have an amazing kitchen.

Being Erica | Where the Wombles Are – As the girl behind Being Erica makes the move to her next flat, she decided to have one last trip with her mum before settling back down.

Baker by Nature | Chicken Caprese Burgers – Just make sure that the cheese is Goat Mozzarella, and I’m there.

Joy the Baker | Turkey Sloppy Joes with Buttery Buns – I still remember the Sloppy Joes June made us when I was in elementary school… and have to wonder how Joy’s will compare. Also, I really must invest in a marble slab one of these days. It’s perfect for taking food pictures.

Wandering Spice | Classic Tarte Tatin: French Upside-Down Caramel Apple Tart – I adore apple tarts, so this is a recipe I have to try!

HiP Paris Blog | Top 5: Our Favorite Parisian Cafes – I want to try each and everyone of these when I finally make it to Paris!

The Wiegands | Lemon Pancetta Pasta Salad – I have to try this one, and I think I’ll sub the thyme with some of our lemon thyme that’s doing so well (despite all this heat!)

Emily Luxton | Afternoon Tea at Alvear Palace, Buenos Airies – If I could go anywhere in South America, Buenos Aires is definitely the city I would want to see the most. (This is probably why a small part of my next spy novel will take place there!) The tea at the Alvear Palace looks so delicious too!

Petite Biet | A Three Year Old Girl – Belle shows us plenty of beautiful pictures and an engaging narrative of little Biet’s 3rd birthday.

Ruche | Ordering Coffee In A Parisian Cafe – If you’ve ever wanted to know the ins and outs of ordering a coffee in Paris, check this post out.

Cupcakes & Cashmere | Mediterranean Bites – Appetizers are my favorite thing, so this post is right up my alley.

Chapter Friday | If You Recognize This You May Be Struggling With Sleep Deprivation  & Films That Transport you to Paris– want to know if you suffer some sleep deprivation? Well check out the films in the second article if you just can’t seem to sleep.

A Beautiful Mess | A Bakery + Greenhouse Date – looks like a fun day to me!

By the Shore | Girlfriends – it’s always fun to take a moment to catch up with friends.
