Welcome to the weekend, my associates! Good morning, good morning, good morning!! The climate this week has been wonderful with one other 70 diploma day right here in Ohio. I notice it’s a false trace of spring, however I’m basking in it whereas I can.
It received’t be practically so heat as we speak, however there’s no rain within the forecast, so I’m hoping to get out for a protracted stroll or hike. Native associates, the place are your favourite walks and straightforward hikes within the Columbus space?
ON THE BLOG this week: Recent strawberries tucked into gentle and fluffy pancakes create the loveliest Strawberry Pancakes you can imagine. In the event you occur to have some berries available, you’ve got the potential for a breakfast that’s sure to make you grin as we speak.
Tender rooster and candy corn are mixed in a creamy chicken corn soup with simply sufficient warmth to heat your mouth with out setting it on hearth.
Steaming sizzling biscuits topped with melted butter have confirmed irresistible to each member of my household. I’ve made this easy drop biscuit recipe at the very least half a dozen instances over the previous few months. It simply doesn’t get previous.
Crispy, toasty, and ever so barely tacky, I could make a whole meal out of this garlic parmesan roasted broccoli.
Saucy BBQ pork tucked into melted cheese in a buttery crisp tortilla? That’s one thing I can’t probably resist. This pulled pork quesadilla is a fast and straightforward strategy to get a hearty meal on the desk, even on the busiest of weeknights.
Crisp, tart, barely candy, and at all times aromatic, the classic mojito is a cocktail that I by no means get uninterested in sipping.
Chew-size potatoes and Brussels sprouts are roasted with spicy sausage and loads of cheese to create an irresistible dinner.
Sticky Asian Meatballs are candy and a bit of bit spicy. I sometimes serve these meatballs over rice, with some steamed or roasted greens on the aspect. Nevertheless, they work nice as a celebration appetizer too.
Have you ever tried the Candy Kale Salad at Costco? It begins with shredded kale, thinly sliced Brussels sprouts, and a beneficiant handful of broccoli matchsticks. The greens are topped with candy cranberries and salty pepitas earlier than being tossed in a tangy candy poppyseed dressing. The awesomeness of the salad can’t be overstated and now you can make it at home!
What I’m CRAVING: Have you ever tried Peanut Butter Broccoli? (I used to be such a skeptic and even harassed my buddy Lynne concerning the tremendous weird-sounding mixture!) I’ll fortunately eat these phrases now. That is so dang good! Roasted broccoli + peanut butter = a HUGE win with my complete household. I’ll be making it once more this weekend.
My FAVORITE THING this week is that this enameled cast iron skillet. It’s the right measurement for thus many recipes! I’ve used it at the very least six instances this week and beloved it extra each time. It’s oven protected, I really like the lid that makes it a coated casserole-style pan, and it cleans like a dream.
What I’m LISTENING to: Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. In the event you aren’t already accustomed to them (though I’m assuming most of you already love them as a lot as we do) Huge Unhealthy Voodoo Daddy is a recent swing revival band. Their music is most frequently described as pumped-up swing or dance ground jazz, and so far as I’m involved it’s pure enjoyable.
