INSPIRE: Our Latest and Greatest Foodie Finds

We don't know about you, but we're done with boring basics where dinner is concerned. After discovering a wealth of delicious recipes thanks to food blogs and websites like FoodieCrush, Serious Eats, Zen Can Cook, Spoon Fork Bacon and more, there's simply no excuse for lackluster dinners! This week, we've decided to share the foodie love with a round-up of our latest, greatest dinner-worthy finds. Bon appetit!

Need we say more?

 Planning on making spaghetti and meatballs? Plan on making this delish dish instead!

We'd swap our usual hamburgers for these babies.

Ditch your usual garden salad for this tastier, fresher and more nutritious option.

Much more exotic than your same old grilled chicken, no? 

Another exciting and flavour-packed pasta option.

Goodbye chicken soup, hello Vietnamese Beef Pho! 

If it's good enough for Jamie Oliver, it's good enough for us.

We have our very own foodie crush on FoodieCrush. It was love at first click.

Are you salivating yet?

EXPLORE: 5 Spots to Add to Your Travel Hit List

Our list of must-see travel spots is constantly expanding. With every dreamy beach, urban art project or amazing desert oasis we discover, the list grows longer and longer. This week, we found a few swoon-worthy additions that we just had to add to our roster and we decided to share them with you here on our blog! Get ready to be be bitten by the travel bug:

1. Cap Ferret, France
Need we say more? This photo pretty much sums it up: idyllic beaches, crystal clear water and plenty of French flair!

2. The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps, San Francisco, California
This urban art project has become a destination in and of itself. Reminiscent of Barcelona's Park Guell, we just have to hit up this San Fran spot.

3. Tallinn, Estonia
Forget Disney World! When it's fairy tale castles you crave, head to Eastern Europe. Estonia's straight-out-of-Cinderella charm is impossible to resist.

4. Wadi Rum, Jordan
Often called "Valley of the Moon", which in itself is enough to make us want to go, Wadi Rum has inspired the likes of Laurence of Arabia over the years. We could totally get lost (in the best way possible) exploring these craggy rock formations!

5. Human Towers, Spain
The name alone is enough to pique our interest. Northeastern Spain's Human Tower ritual is an integral part of Catalan culture - and unsurprisingly, a destination we just had to add to our travel bucket list.
