The second week of January is here… In fact, it’s almost over! And, I’m still waiting for some snow. I’m one of those crazy people who really enjoys snow in the winter. I could go for a foot or two right about now.
Instead, it’s just been kind of dreary and rainy here. All of the dreary weather has kind of sucked the kitchen inspiration right out of me. I’m doing my best, but it’s one of those weeks where I can certainly use a little help from my friends. (Do you have the Beatles in your head now? Yup, me too.)
I’m hoping to find some time and motivation to get into the kitchen this weekend… So, here are a few of the recipes I’ve bookmarked for some inspiration!
- Casseroles are perfect for chilly weather. And, dreary weather. I am loving the look of this Spinach, Cheddar, and Egg Casserole from Dana Treat. I think it can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner (just add a salad!)… And it couldn’t be simpler.
- My hubby is a fan of chocolate lava cakes. Every time we get dessert at a restaurant, he searches the menu for the chocolate lava cake. I think I’ll make these Hot Molten Lava Cakes from LoveFeast Table for him over the weekend.
- Bread pudding is one of my favorites this time of year… It’s so warm and comforting. I am just dying to try this Cranberry and Croissant Bread Pudding with Champagne Zabaglione Sauce from Creative Culinary. I love everything about it.
- If you’re planning a big game day party over the next few weeks, you don’t want to miss this Buffalo Chicken Mac ‘n Chese from TidyMom. Your football loving friends will love you.
