The temperatures have officially risen in El Ley and I now find myself wearing my favorite thing: shorts, denim skirts and sneakers. It’s no longer boot season and I love it! When Love and Lemons Everyday, showed up on my doorstep, it was like opening a box of sunshine. All the recipes feel so fresh and delicious and healthy.

Whenever I’m figuring out what I should make for dinner, Jeanine’s blog is always a go-to for me. I find so much delicious vegetarian inspiration from her. Everything looks so clean and tasty!
