Mr. Sweet and I love a good snack. Popcorn is always simple and easy to make. A blank slate for other flavorings and extras. Give a little bag away as a party gift, make a large bowl for a movie or just for a light snacking. Popcorn is always a good idea.
Above are a couple I have been eyeing:
Crunchy Caramel Popcorn
I have never made a homemade biscuit. I meant to a million times but decided against it at the last minute for a package biscuits. Don’t judge me; you know you have done it too!
I have heard stories on the secret to tender, flaky biscuits. When to put the butter in, when to cut the butter into the flour, how you need to work quickly so the butter doesn’t melt too much, don’t over mix the dough or use this flour or this type of butter.
I never knew what to do.
So after a long search, I found a recipe via Pinterest by Mom on Timeout. It looked amazing, easy and I had exactly what I needed at home. So into the kitchen I went and whipped up a batch. They were delicious, soft and doughy inside with a light flake on the outside. Everyone gobbled them up. This is definitely a recipe that I am going to come back to time and time again.
Fried Chicken and Waffle Sandwiches! My word. I have been talking about these with my husband all week. Why have I never thought of using a waffle as the “bread”?!? We came up with the idea of making the waffle like corn bread. Oh the ways you could work this recipe!
The Ultimate Loaded Veggie Burger is a great way to get your veggies in at your next BBQ. Crunchy potato topping and avocado lime cream? I am so in!
This One Pan Pasta blows my mind. Genius. I can’t wait to try it.
A Chicken Parmesan Grilled Cheese looks amazing. We just bought a multi use grill/panini maker that I have been dying to fire up.
Mr. Sweet and I enjoy bringing wine when we visit friends, but I am always overwhelmed and intimidated when I stop into my local liquor store and see rows of bottles. I never know what to buy – reds, whites, sparklers or rosés? I read labels and ask for help from the sommelier. Mr. Sweet, on the other hand, finds the funniest label and hopes for the best.
A couple of months ago I came across a blog called Brunellos Have More Fun. Whitney has helped tremendously with picking out wines for the right occasions and making me feel more comfortable in the store. She also has a wonderful Webcast called “The Crush”. Do check her out if you are interested in learning more about what you have or should be drinking.
Also, should you not want to delve into the details of wines and where they come from The New York Times has a great article on 20 Memorable Bottles for $20.
As a renter this is a dream come true.
The Wall Sticker Company is based out of Australia. They ship worldwide and have been in business since 2006. The company create removable fabric wallpaper that goes up in minutes, doesn’t require and glue or water, and can be removed and even relocated!
Le Sigh. If only my husband would agree to this one.
Adorable for the kitchen.
