{Friday Five Foodie Finds #10}

Happy Friday Friends!

I hope your week has been great!  Mine has been alright…getting over being sick and starting Chemistry class, plus working at both jobs has made for a semi-hectic week.  But my “sick day” was a good day of rest where I spent the day hangin with the BF watching food network for hours on end so I really can’t complain can I?

Plus on Fridays I don’t usually work until 11 so I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night.  I just love sleep, don’t you??  Did you know that people who sleep more tend to weigh less?  Just another reason to get your sleep on!

Throughout the week I read many wonderful blogs, food blogs, mommy blogs (don’t judge, I will be a mommy some day), home blogs, craft blogs…and I like to showcase my favorite food finds each week.  I chose to only pick 5 each week because seriously, there are many talented people out there that I would have waayyy too many foodie ideas.  It takes me long enough to talk about 5 of my finds. :-)

So I give to you my Friday Five Foodie Finds this week!  Enjoy!

1.
Krissy’s Creations’ Gingerbread Biscotti

Biscottis are quite possibly my favorite treat after cookies.  I’ve made them a couple of times and even have a recipe that I’ve modified to perfection.  I got excited when I saw these because of my love of biscottis AND I have some gingerbread mix in the cupboard that I’ve been wondering what to do with.

2.
Allrecipes.com’s Peppermint Biscotti

Biscottis on the mind? Yes. Yes they are.  I actually found a beautiful picture of peppermint biscottis that I put on my Christmas Foodie Ideas board but alas when I clicked on the picture (to get to the original site) I could not find the recipe or even the picture!  So what did I do.  Googled it of course!  I found a recipe for it but you have to see the original pinterest photo.  Maybe you can find the original recipe for me?

*Sigh.*  Lovely.

3.Fit Foodie Find’s Gluten-Free Raspberry Oat Bars

Remember last week when I said I follow blogs for their photography?  Well not only do I love Lee’s photography, but she always has super healthy food that I get excited about trying.  Truth be told, I am not a big berry person (have you seen a single berry on my blog yet?), but I would love to try this recipe…just based on this picture. ;-)

4.
Iowa Girl Eat’s Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup

And here’s more lovely photography for you.  I may or may not be obsessed with this gal’s writing as well as her recipes and photography.  Proof?  I had a dream that I was at a dinner party with her and Paula Deen and afterwards I was upset because I didn’t get pictures with them to share on my blog. 

I have never attempted homemade dumplings before, but it is feeling awfully wintry here and this seems like the perfect cold-day soup.

5.
Baked Perfection’s Candy Cane Blossoms

Here’s another one I found on pinterest.  I am a sucker for pretty cookies and trying new things and for this recipe you get to color your own sugar!  I am pretty sure I did not know that was possible but I am definitely going to try this.

I said on my post Wednesday that I was going to make cake pops that night but alas, this girl was tired.  We have rescheduled for this Saturday (tomorrow) and I’m super excited!  I will have to make a couple of cakes in preparation today so that is going on my to-do list. 

I also really want to make the BF dinner since I feel like I haven’t made a real home-made from-scratch recipe in awhile.  Possibly since my Turkey Loaf…is that possible??  Any recommendations?  I guess I have my list of Friday Five Foodie Finds that I can go through for ideas.  Very convenient! :-)

If your post was featured, feel free to grab a button!  I worked very hard to figure out how the heck to make these things but I did not let them get the best of me. ;-)

Simply copy-paste the code onto your blog and voila!  Magical blog button!

Have a lovely weekend friends!

Also stay tuned for my recipe for Candy Bar Cookies from my WIAW post.

Are you a mint person?  The BF and Daddio don’t like mint so I get to eat all of the mint/peppermint goodies I make. :-)


What are you up to this weekend?

More importantly…what’s for dinner??
