You can tell that summer is in full swing with one glance at what inspired me this week, can’t you? I am intrigued by the no-churn ice cream from The Vanilla Bean Blog, the excellent summer reading suggestions from Modern Mrs. Darcy, a delightful cookbook from Oh Sweet Basil, and some simple home swaps for safe cleaning and laundry from this week.

These no-churn ice cream recipes from The Vanilla Bean Blog are right up my alley. I have my eye (and stomach) on the raspberry chip and the Frangelico and coffee.

I always love Modern Mrs. Darcy’s summer reading recommendations. Summer is the perfect time to tuck in to a new book. What ones catch your eye?

I picked up this cookbook with the intention of letting our kids have a hand in the kitchen and choose something to plan for and make. There are so many doable and delicious recipes in this cookbook from Oh Sweet Basil. I highly recommend checking it out!

I have a free printable this week with my favorite cleaning and laundry swaps. These simple, safe, and natural cleaning recipes + laundry swaps are some of my favorite alternatives to traditional and often harmful products.

A couple Clean Mama Items:

Did you see the Summer Quarterly?  It’s one of my favorite things on the site – a quiet approach to homekeeping and an invitation to slow down. I share my top secret Chicken Salad recipe and other tips for a refreshing summer. Check it out here.

I just added TWO new sets of towels to the Clean Mama Shop. I love bringing you the highest quality of kitchen and cleaning cloths and these will not disappoint. The Kitchen & Pantry Towels are great for hand towels and a quick clean up.

I love flour sack towels and am excited to bring you this subtle aqua stripe. You’ll love these large lint-free multi-purpose towels – use them for cleaning, washing windows, drying dishes, hand towels, wrapping gifts, and so much more.

Four new essential oil blends hit the shop a couple weeks ago – did you grab one, two, or all four?  Check them out here. I loved working on these blends and am so pleased to bring you delightful and pure essential oil blends. A lot of you have reached out wondering where I got them from – Plant Therapy manufactured them for me.
