Sharing my favorite recipes, books, interesting articles, podcasts and finds from this week.
Good Friday morning friends! How are you? I hope that your week went well. This past week was busy and productive at work and at home organizing a few things. I took down most of the Christmas decorations, except the trees, I think I may leave them up a bit longer. What can I say, I love the joy they bring on dark winter days and the twinkling lights make me happy. This week on the blog in case you missed a post I shared my “Happiness Report”with a few of the things bringing me joy lately and a scrumptious recipe for Walnut Date bread that you just might want to making this weekend if you feel like baking.
This weekend I have plans to set up my new MacBook Air, to watch a class or two on MasterClass and reading this book. I also plan on re-reading a couple of the articles I found this week because I enjoyed them so much.
Grab yourself a coffee and enjoy all of the interesting things I found for you things week.
Lately I have been eating and making a lot of recipes with “buffalo chicken”, tonight I will be making these Folded Buffalo Chicken Wraps from Half Baked Harvest. Tiegen is one of my all time favorite bloggers and cookbook authors and I have never ever made a bad recipe from her collections.
Chili Verde Shrimp and Rice Skillet from Climbing Grier Mountain is delicious alternative to take-out this weekend.
I made Chicken Pot Pie Soup this week and it is an easy and delicious recipe with no cream or dairy. They only addition that I made was to add sweet potatoes.
I love thisWatercolor Cake from A Beautiful Mess! I think I might try something like this for Valentines Day!
If you are doing meal prep for the new year here is a great post from Cake & Knife. Speaking of meal prep, I made the homemade yogurt and fresh blueberry lemon compote shown above, it is a great breakfast or dessert.

In this cozy bedtime story, follow a child and his grandma through a winter landscape to explore how the Earth goes to sleep for winter. Spot the sleeping animals as the tale unfolds, then learn about their hibernation habits from the information pages at the end.
What She Ate is a lively and unpredictable array of women; what they have in common with one another (and us) is a powerful relationship with food. They include Dorothy Wordsworth, whose food story transforms our picture of the life she shared with her famous poet brother; Rosa Lewis, the Edwardian-era Cockney caterer who cooked her way up the social ladder; Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady and rigorous protector of the worst cook in White House history; Eva Braun, Hitler’s mistress, who challenges our warm associations of food, family, and table; Barbara Pym, whose witty books upend a host of stereotypes about postwar British cuisine; and Helen Gurley Brown, the editor of Cosmopolitan, whose commitment to “having it all” meant having almost nothing on the plate except a supersized portion of diet gelatin.
An evocative novel in the vein of Kate Morton and Daphne Du Maurier, in which the thrill of first love clashes with the bonds of sisterhood, and all will be tested by the dark secret at the heart of Applecote Manor.
