So, did you notice that I completely missed last week’s Friday Fave’s? Lo siento! I was out and about having too much birthday fun to get my favorite things of the week in order for you. Since it’s sloooooowly starting to feel like spring, lots of my favorite things this week are spring-themed. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
Favorite Fun-But-Healthy Breakfast: Strawberries ‘n Cream Quinoa Porridge . This is the perfect opportunity to switch from my boring oatmeal breakfast to something more fun – like quinoa!
Favorite Not-So-Easy-Not-So-Healthy Breakfast: Prosciutto & Gruyere Croissants from alexandra’s kitchen. I’ve never dared make croissants, as they seem complicated and fussy and I think Panera’s are mighty tasty. BUT I could see myself getting into the croissant making if it involved prosciutto and cheese. Holy yum.
Favorite Simple Side: Roasted Carrots with Thyme and Nutmeg. Can you believe I’ve never made or even had roasted carrots?! This recipe is going to change that!
Favorite Lunch Salad: I just love rice/grain salads for lunch and this Asian-Style Brown Rice Salad in Orange-Sesame Soy Dressing looks amazing!
Favorite Easter Treat: Coconut Lemon Macaroon Nests from Two Peas and Their Pod. I love coconut. I love lemon. I think I would loooooove them together! This flavor combo looks perfect for an Easter or spring dessert.
Favorite Use for a Barn Door: I just love the look of reclaimed barn doors being used as part of interior decorating. I love how this dining room is rustic, yet modern.
Favorite Spin on an Old Classic: these cute little Banana Puddings with Salted Caramel Sauce. Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin.
Favorite Indulgent Easter Side Dish: Cheese and Cream Potatoes from Heather Crisco. Cheese. Cream. Potatoes. I’m there.
Favorite Easter Dinner Carb: Orange Honey Butter Wheat Rolls. I’ve been on a honey kick lately (why have I never put it in my oatmeal until now?!) and these rolls look ah-mazing.
Favorite Spring Happy Hour: Sunrise Punch. This cocktail has orange juice, coconut milk, seltzer water, strawberries, pineapple, and rum. Ummm yum!
Favorite Spring Treat: Raspberry and Lemon Cream Cheese Cupcakes. In my world, lemon desserts just SCREAM spring!!
