Welcome to another edition of Friday Favorites! As usual, I’ll be sharing some of my favorites from the past week.
A Secret Kept
On Sunday morning I finished reading A Secret Kept (affiliate link) by Tatiana de Rosnay. It’s been a while since I last read a book this good. It only took me a couple days to finish it, including one very late night because I just couldn’t put it down. It centers on a brother and his family, and his journey to finding out the circumstances surrounding his mother’s death when he was a child. While it might sound a bit dark, it’s more about the family dynamics and about how each family member dealt the the loss of the family matriarch. If you liked Sarah’s Key, also by Tatiana de Rosnay, I think you’ll like this one too even though it’s not historical fiction. A Secret Kept is also set in France and it almost felt like the different locations featured in the book were additional characters because they were featured so heavily. If you have any other book recommendations, let me know! I’m always looking for more suggestions to read.
Chicken skillet recipe
I’ve made this chicken skillet recipe a few times now, and it’s delicious each time. Although I wasn’t able to find the exact same recipe online to share with you, this one is very similar. I’ve served it over both brown rice and egg noodles, and brown rice is my favorite by far. It’s pretty easy to make (if you buy sliced mushrooms it cuts down on some prep work), and the ingredients are super easy to find at the grocery store. I love that it includes the mushrooms and broccoli in it, so I don’t have to make veggies as a side. This is one of those dishes that gets better the day after as leftovers, so it’s perfect for lunch the next day.
Origins Night-A-Mins Renewal Cream
I got this in a Sephora sleep favorites box, and this is definitely one of my top three items from it. Origins Night-A-Mins Renewal Cream (affiliate link) smells amazing on top of keeping my dry trouble spots on my face feeling soft and moisturized. The skin on my chin is stubbornly dry, so the fact that this can keep that in check is awesome. I will definitely be buying another one of these once I finish up this tube.
