Friday Shout-Outs & Recipe To-Do’s

Since discovering Google Reader and Pinterest, my list of “to do” recipes has grown exponentially.  I have just been saving and pinning and saving and pinning and don’t even know where to start!!  The food blog world is so big, with so many to read and so many recipes that look so yummy. 


I wanted to take the time to share with you a few of the outstanding recipes that I’ve been eyeing up from some of my favorite blogs recently.  I can’t wait to try them!!

1.  The Baker Chick’s Cinnamon Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

Um… homemade pop tarts?  This sounds amazing, and only has 6 ingredients (if you don’t count water)!  I like finding recipes that I think my Dad would like, and this one is right down his alley.

2.  Mighty Migas from Taking on Magazines

One of my favorite bloggers tests out recipes from different magazines (where I get most of mine too!), tells us how it turned out, and what she’d do different.  This delicious breakfast recipe originally comes from Rachael Ray Magazine, and looks fabulous!  Anything with eggs gets my attention, and when jalapeño and avocado are added into the mix… I’m there!

3.  Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken from Chef in Training

If you haven’t noticed, I LOVE make-at-home Chinese / Asian recipes.  This recipe using a crockpot sounds easy and so delish!  I also totally appreciate the re-do of breaded and fried chicken recipes, using boneless skinless chicken breast instead.  YUM!

4.  Artichoke and Spinach Frittata from Closet Cooking

Definitely want to try this one out, to branch out with my new fascination of Artichokes.  It sounds so easy and I love the addition of the Greek Yogurt!

5.  Chocolate Lasagna from Picky-Palate

Like… do I need to say any more?  Chocolate. Lasagna!?  Each ingredient is yummy on it’s own so I can’t imagine what it would be like all together in layers?

6.  Athenian Orzo from Prevention RD

I have some orzo leftover from one of my own recipes, and would love to try this one out!  The flavors in this sound amazing, and shrimp recipes are always special since Dave hates them.  I’ll have to make it for Mom and I soon!

7.  Raspberry Coconut Macaroons from Smitten Kitchen

I’m actually hoping to make these for my family’s Passover Sedar on Saturday!  Although I’m more impressed with the French Macarons recently, I still want to try to make my own Coconut Macaroon… and these are just so. pretty.
