Friday Favorites – Episode 52

Happy Friday! I am going to keep this somewhat brief today because I’ve got lots to do. Friends of ours are having a birthday party for their 2 year old son this Sunday afternoon, and asked me to do the cake.  We settled on a sports theme cake decorated with sugar cookies, so I will be busy decorating cookies today!

So, without further ado… Here are my favorites from this week!

  • For someone who loves to cook, would you believe that my potato salad never turns out well? It’s true. Now that picnic season is on its way, I think I will be making this Baked Potato Salad from Evil Shenanigans.  I’m sure it will be wonderful because Kelly’s good like that.
  • Speaking of being busy… I have been slacking off on my gardening. In fact, I only mulched around the front of my house because I ran out of time. However, this post on Fresh Herbs and the Garden from Our Best Bites is getting me in the mood to go out and work in the garden (and maybe even finish mulching around the house…. maybe).
  • I am a fan of grilled cheese… This is not your ordinary grilled cheese sandwich, though. Take my word for it. Just go take a look at The Bianca Dessert Grilled Cheese from Nutmeg Nanny. You can thank me later!
  • Is it possible for food to be trendy? I think so… and I definitely think that Brussels sprouts are trendy right now! It’s fine with me, though, because I love them. So, it’s no surprise that I can’t wait to try this Brussels Sprout Bacon Potato Hash from The Cooking Photographer. I am pretty sure it could change the mind of any Brussels sprouts hater!
