It has been an off week around here. The holiday in the middle of the week was just odd. Granted I am home every day, but somehow I kept thinking Wednesday was Saturday and yeah it has all just been a whirlwind and a mess. Here are a few things this week I wanted to make. I haven’t had time though. I did, however, make what appears to be a delicious peppermint patty cake. Pictures, post, and review next week! In the meantime…
-I have been buying zucchini from the farmers market like it is going out of style. My plants in my garden are as big as a good sized pony and the first teeny tiny zucchinis are coming on. I found this recipe for zucchini fries. It looks crispy, yummy, and an easy way to use up lots of zucchini! Also just go poke around The Lean Green Bean. She has some great posts!
-Another blog I discovered this week is Smells Like Home. I got lost in her posts for the better part of Little’s nap time earlier this week. These strawberry crumb bars look amazing. Oregon strawberries are in full force and I love finding new recipes to make with them! I have never really baked with strawberries before this year.
-My sister and I have a weakness for dipped ice cream cones from Dairy Queen. Anyone else suffer from this addiction? Well I found a way to make them at home! This post for DIY magic shell topping popped up on my pinterest feed and I was thrilled. Haven’t tried it yet but will report back when I do.
-And last but not least- brownie cookies with salted caramel creme filling. Um. Yes please. I will be making these soon and reporting back. In the meantime, if you have a few hours to kill and want to feel like a less than adequate baker, visit Bakers Royale. So many tasty treats I want to try!!!
Hugs and love. Have a great weekend!
