Welcome to the weekend, my friends! We had a fantastic time in NM and AZ with our family this past week. I’m really glad we could get out there at last and see everyone. That said, it’s great to be home again. We’re getting ready for the new school year and definitely looking forward to fall.
ON THE BLOG this week: Tender buttery Peach Coffee Cake is filled with sweet bites of peach and topped with an irresistible brown sugar crumb topping – what is not to love??
This Italian Red Wine Roast Beef slowly cooks in the crock-pot creating an unforgettable dinner with almost no effort at all. This smells absolutely fantastic as it slowly cooks through the day.
Can a recipe ever go wrong when it starts with the words “double chocolate?” The first time I made these Double Chocolate Brownies, I took them to the park to share with friends and they disappeared within minutes.
Homemade Vanilla Pudding is a classic dessert that simply doesn’t get the love that it deserves. So, often we reach for chocolate or caramel or peanut butter to satisfy a sweet craving, but I’ve come to appreciate the awesomeness of a great vanilla dessert.
Ripe strawberries, bananas, and chunks of fudge brownies are layered into these Banana Split Brownie Trifles with vanilla pudding and whipped cream.
What I’m CRAVING: These Garlic Parmesan Stuffed Pork Chops from Spicy Southern Kitchen look so good!
What I’m WATCHING: Miss Congeniality. If you need a laugh, this one never dissapoints. It still makes me laugh every time I watch it.
What I’m READING: The Spellsong War. This is the second book in the Spellsong War series (think sorcerers who can work magic through songs – it’s a fun idea) and I’m enjoying re-reading them all.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 NIV
Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
