Happy Friday, foodie friends! It’s been AGES since my last Friday Faves but it’s time I bring it back. There were just too many delicious eats this week not to share! Enjoy 🙂
Favorite Cinco De Mayo Breakfast: Tres Leches French Toast with Cinnamon Whipped Cream from Climbing Grier Mountain. Tres leches cake is, without a doubt, in my top three favorite cakes and I can’t imagine a better way to start the 5th of May than with this decadent french toast.
Favorite Day-After-Cinco De Mayo Breakfast: Green Energy Smoothie from A Cedar Spoon. This looks just like what we all might need on May 6 to soothe our enchilada and margarita hangover…am I right?! It’s filled with healthy things like avocado, coconut water, bananas, pineapple, and spinach, which makes all those things we do wrong, right.
Favorite Indulgence: Smothered Chicken from The Daring Gourmet. In case you couldn’t tell, there’s bacon, mushrooms, and heavy cream in there. Seriously, can I just take a spoon to that sauce?
Favorite Healthified Indulgence: Loaded Cauliflower Bake from Emily Bites. This baby is loaded with bacon, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, pepperjack cheese, all while being lightened up from it’s original version of a loaded potato bake. Plus there’s a boat load of cauliflower in it, making it even healthier.
Favorite Throw-Back: Grandma’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake from Garnish With Lemon. Aren’t grandma’s recipes always the best?! Plus, that walnut streusel looks incredible!
Favorite Candy Bar Turned Cake: Almond Joy Cake from The Law Student’s Wife. My love for Almond Joys comes directly from my mom and now anything with remnants of coconut, chocolate, and almond is an automatic favorite in my book. I can only imagine how delicious this moist coconut cake with chocolate frosting topped with chopped almonds is.
Favorite Taco Tuesday: Puffy Chicken Tacos from Baked By Rachel. Confession: I can’t wait to have kids just so we can have Taco Tuesdays every week. Totally keeping this recipe for our unborn children to enjoy. That’s not weird, it is?
Aaaand on that note – have a great weekend! Stop by next week for the ultimate comfort casserole, a fun giveaway, and a special Mother’s Day dessert!
