Friday Favorites – Episode 22

Happy (finally) Friday!

Don’t you hate those weeks when you keep thinking that it’s later in the week than it really is?  All day on Wednesday, I kept thinking it was Thursday. I almost got started writing my Friday Favorites when I was rudely awakened to the fact that it was only Wednesday.

Anyway, now it actually is Friday, so it’s time for this week’s Friday Favorites.  Without further ado (I’ve waited long enough), here are my favorite blog posts from the past week!

  • These S’mores Cookies from Two Peas and Their Pod look so delicious! I love that you can see the Hershey’s logo on the chocolate pieces.  This one is definitely on my “must bake” list… as soon as I can find a good excuse!
  • While we’re talking about sweets, be sure to check out this Chocolate Ganache from Savory Sweet Life.  I love chocolate ganache, but I have never thought to whip it and pipe it from a pastry bag.  Be sure to check out the beautiful pictures of the ganache-making process!
  • I also liked this Spaghetti and Meatballs recipe from The Sophisticated Gourmet. I rarely fry anything, but I may have to make this meatball recipe, even if it does mean frying the meatballs. I’m looking forward to making some homemade tomato sauce and I think I have found the perfect way to use it.
  • Finally, my Friday Favorites wouldn’t be complete without mentioning these Sweet Potato Buttermilk Biscuits from Bread + Butter. I only discovered sweet potatoes in the last few years… but now that I did, i can’t get enough. These seem like the perfect biscuits for the fall… I’m counting the days!

  1. Thanks for the links – I’ve always fried my meatballs, I make tiny ones and it only takes a bit of oil because of the fat in the meat – then I run them under hot water and plop them in my sauce – so good!

    Have a nice weekend!

  2. Thanks for the inclusion. Good picks this week. I’m not saying that because I’m one of them. LOL. The other three are good picks.

  3. OMG! Jen, I’ve been such a bad blogger. I haven’t been catching up with all of the blogs that I read! I just noticed that you mentioned me in your post a little while ago. Thanks so much for the mention, and frying the meatballs is so worth it! :D

  4. Fortunately, you only have two “chocolate” recipes. I bet when I go to their blogs, they are going to tempt me, even more. Oh well. I am on my way and thanks.

  5. I don’t know which is worse, thinking it is later in the week than it is or realizing the week has zipped by and you’ve only accomplished half of what you needed to do!

    Thanks for the links to these recipes! They sound fantastic and I am off to look. I’m sure there are at least two I must make!
