What I Bookmarked This Week

I'm going to  try to share my weekly bookmarks with you.  These are recipes I want to try or projects that have inspired me.  Here are a few from this week I hope they inspire you as well:

I have a new button on my sidebar - if you have been bookmarked on my site be sure to grab one.

This Chicken and Black Bean Green Enchilada Bake from Picky Palate  looks great!  I love a casserole/one pot dish.  This caught my attention because it had all the ingredients that I know my kids would love too; rice, chicken, olives, cheese and beans ...these are few of our favorite things...

Here is a recipe from food 52 that I literally stumbled upon, I love when that happens, you know- someone tweets something and you follow, read it and find something linked to it - you get what I'm saying right?  That's how I found this recipe for Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt, it is a very simple lentil dish but it looks sooo good!

Mujaddara with Spiced Yogurt

And now for dessert - I have bookmarked another recipe from Sugar Plums blog this week.  Are you ready for it?  OK - it is a Hot Fudge Chocolate Bundt Cake.  Hubby never reads my blog so if anyone runs into him will you please let him know that I want this for Mothers Day!!!


I'll take these too!  Actually Hubby might prefer these.  This is a recipe from the amazing Ree Drummond.
It's another delicious chocolate dessert recipe, Ree calls these Knock You Naked Brownies (hence the Hubby reference earlier). 

Have you seen these amazing Jewelery Holders yet?  I know they are all over blogland this week, but I had to bookmark them too!  I love this idea from Peace, Love, 2 Sisters.

I found these "Book Shelves" today and I LOVE them!!  I am definitely going to give this a try.  Aren't they great and so smart?  This idea is from Masons Roost.

Here is a great Jute Calendar that Charcoal and Crayons made.  I love how this came out.  It looks like a lot of work and I am hoping I have the patience to give it a try because I think it is awesome!

I normally only feature 3 bookmarks in each category (Food and Crafts) but this week I found so many amazing ideas out there!  Here is the last craft I found and I think this is a great idea for Mothers Day - I know I wont be able to make one and send it out to my Mom by Sunday, but her birthday is coming up soon so I may make this for her then (she never goes on-line so I think my secret is safe.) It is an adorable Mothers Day Bracelet from At Second Street

I have to tell you - I am sitting in the kitchen typing this post and all I can think about is the amazing aroma coming from my oven right now.  I am making a Banana Nutella Bread from one of my first "What I Bookmarked" posts and I can't wait to share it with you. 

I wanted to wish everyone a very Happy Mothers Day!!! 

And lastly, if you haven't yet entered my Freschetta Giveaway make sure you do.   You can win a coupon for some free Freschetta by the slice and a 3 pack food storage set.

These are few of the many things in the blogosphere that have inspired me this week - what has inspired you??


  1. Thanks for featuring my Enchilada Bake, great website :) Have a great weekend!!

  2. Awesome! I encourage everyone to drill some books on to the walls:) And that tandoori chicken in a previous post looks amazing!

  3. yum!! what great bookmarks. mujaddara is a staple in our house, too.

  4. OMG those book shelves are just the coolest thing ever!!!

  5. Whoa, those bookshelves. I am so doing this when I start redecorating my bedroom. That bundt cake also looks amazing--envying the non-chocolate-impaired right now. Yum.

    (Here from FTLOB to say hello!)

  6. Fun bracelet! My kids and I've made shrinky dink name tags for their backpacks. I was so happy to find shrinky dinks at JoAnns. I bought the box with blank sheets of shrinky dink plastic. It worked! (we used sharpies to color). I missed out on so many cool craft projects as a child! lol All I played with was my set of watercolor paints and markers. Markers actually were a rarity; I was the only one in my class who had markers, and I loved sharing them during art. Then one day an older girl stole them from me... she approached me after school and asked me to show off the markers. Then she grabbed them out of my hands and ran away. It was very traumatic experience, as I would rather have markers, pencils or paint than any other toy :(
    LOL it's funny now, but it really upset me back then. I was probably in 1st grade.

  7. Great finds! That bundt cake is calling my name :)

  8. Thank you for featuring my Jute Calendar! I think a few of these other great ideas will find their way to my bookmarks list too! Thanks!


I Love Hearing From You!
