Happy Friday! It’s been another busy week here at greens & chocolate. Now that we’re more settled into our new house, we’ve started some projects. We painted our bedroom, Marc put up some new shelving in the garage, and we’re finishing up some DIY decorating projects (thanks to Pinterest!). That on top of my adventures in dehydrating meals for our backpacking trip, this week has flown by! Here are my favorites from this week…let’s start with chocolate, shall we?
Favorite Dessert on a Stick: Chocolate Covered Twix Cheesecakes on a Stick from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. I recently had a homemade mini Twix on a stick at a local Minneapolis restaurant and Chelsea takes that and goes one step farther adding cheesecake. Yes. Please.
Favorite Roasted Strawberry, Brie, and Arugula Quesdaillas from Cookie Monster Cooking. I could eat roasted strawberries every single day and I absolutely love them in these quesadillas.
Favorite Tacos: Dallas Style Brisket Tacos from Taste and Tell who tested it from The Homesick Texan’s Family Table Cookbook. I’m not sure what it means for tacos to be “Dallas Style” but by the looks of this picture, I’d be all over these.
Favorite Sipper: Blackberry Lime Gin Fizz from the Messy Baker. Is it happy hour yet?!
Favorite Way To Taste The Rainbow: Rainbow Veggie Skewers from Gimme Some Oven. I love how pretty these skewers are! I’m pretty sure these could make even the biggest veggie hater eat their greens!
Favorite Cool Off Dessert: Very Berry Ice Cream Pie from Deliciously Sprinkled. With temps getting warmer, I am craving ice cream at night after dinner. This pie looks super refreshing!
Favorite Breakfast Smoothie: Coconut Vanilla, & Almond Butter Smoothie from The Housewife in Training Files. This smoothie has so many of my favorite things in it, my day couldn’t possibly go wrong after fueling up with one of these!
Favorite Way To Impress The Husband: How to Grill the Perfect Steak from Nutmeg Nanny. I might be on permanent grill duty after showing off my grilling skills thanks to Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny!
Favorite ‘S’Mores’ But Not S’Mores Dessert: Peanut Butter S’Mores Ice Cream from A Kitchen Addiction. Again, with the ice cream. And how could peanut butter and s’mores be wrong?
