OK, Mommy’s turn…

Something I love and made this week – The Greek Yogurt Bechamel from the Moussaka from Sumptuous Spoonfuls – this was an amazing topping for a recipe that you will see on Sunday!! (on my Dinner Inspiration Board)

Something I love and will probably never makeMolasses Waffle Cookies from Jen’s Favorite Cookies – because stupid me got a Belgian waffle maker which I never use and probably won’t work for something like this. I think I need to put a regular one on my Christmas list (unless there are any companies out there that want to send me one to “review”). (on my OMG Food Board)

Something I love and want to bake Rustic Loaded Sticky Buns from Cooking in Stilettos – OH. YES. PLEASE. (on my OMG Food Board)

Something I love and want to cook Steak Blue Cheese Pizza from Dizzy, Busy & Hungry – I am totally dying over this pizza! (on my Dinner Inspiration Board)

Something I love and want to make and slather on everythingChocolate Chip Coconut Butter from how Sweet Eats – or maybe I’ll just use a spoon! (on my Ingredients, Condiments, etc. Board)

Something I love and want to put my own spin onCreamy Pumpkin Risotto from Vegan Mother Hubbard – gonna be honest, I want to make a non-vegan version of this. (on my Pumpkin Obsession Board)

And I told you why you probably don’t want to eat my grandma’s stuffing (and there’s a giveaway!!)…



Next week I am pretty much going to be sharing family dinners:

  • Sunday – #SundaySupper is traveling to the Middle East, and I reinterpreted a classic dish.
  • Monday – Mama Monday – tons of ways to use up all that leftover candy.
  • Tuesday – #WeekdaySupper has the flavors of fall simmering in your slow cooker.
  • Wednesday – Wayback Wednesday, and one of our favorite dinners
  • Thursday – I’m thinking maybe some quiche.
  • Friday – Friday Fun!

Have an awesome weekend! As I said earlier, I’d love to see links to your “Somethings”, so leave ’em in the comments!
