Fantastic Food Finds

Here’s a roundup of some food and recipes that have had me drooling the past week or so.  Enjoy!

Brown Eyed Bakers Chocolate Bourbon Walnut Pie


Leanne’s Spicy Mango Rice Bowl With Tofu (or chicken)


The Little Yellow Kitchen’s Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

I adore cream cheese frosting.

Remember my Fudgy Nutella Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting?

The frosting is almost as thick as the brownie.  Just the way I like it.

Joy the Baker’s Sweet Tea Bourbon Cocktails

I love Sweet Tea Vodka.  With vodka drinking pictures to prove it. I should try sweet tea + bourbon, next.

Ashley’s Pea Dip and Veggie Wraps

Liz’s Peanut Butter Parfaits


Rachael’s Avocado Mango Donburi Japanese Rice Bowl

Christine’s Banana Chocolate Kale Chips

If you want Chocolate Coconut Kale Chips, you could try my version

Even Scott who “doesn’t like kale” loved these!

The Culinary Chronicle’s Key Lime Cheesecake


Jenny’s Salted Chocolate Covered Fluffer Nutter Wafters


Katie’s Mango BBQ Sauce


Allie’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pops


I have high Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

And I have Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls


And I have No Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Chocolate Truffles

Now I’m thinking that I need to: dip my cookie dough into a chocolate bath and put them on a stick!  Everything tastes better on a stick.  Have you seen Matt’s new book, On a Stick?

Great Reads of the Week:

Joy the Baker’s Post on Turning 21.  Perspective, advice, and a great top 20 list, from a 30 year old.

Leanne’s Post on Photography 101.  A gem!

Angela’s Post on Hot Yoga.  Recounts her first experience beautifully.  With a followup here.

From my last post about my Blogger Meetup In Aruba, I am glad you enjoyed all the pictures of my time with Morgan.

And thanks for telling me about the blogger meetups you’ve had and who you’d like to meet.


1. Weekend plans?

Time at the beach and pool with Scott and Skylar!

Enjoy Aruba while I can!

2. Any food, recipes, or posts that you’ve seen lately that have you inspired?   Or have you made anything phenomenal lately?

The best thing I made this week was Cheesy Taco Casserole

Or the Taste of the Tropics Smoothie

Have a great weekend!
