Friday Finds

This week started out innocently enough.  I though that I would find some recipes to make a complete meal.  The first thing I found was a recipe for some  pork chops.

Beyer Beware

Sarah from This Farm Family's Life guest posted at Beyer Beware on Monday and shared a recipe for this delicious looking pork chop.  Now I am not a pop drinker, but my husband has one can everyday.  I have made other recipes that called for pop, and they were very good.  This one sound really good, also.

The Pretend Chef

Then I found a recipe for some great sounding carrots. I love carrots if they are cooked properly.  Hubby not so much.  I also love cumin so this seems a perfect paring.   With the addition of a one of the potato dishes from previous Friday Finds, I would have a very tasty dinner.

I decide that I might want to make some muffins.  I found this apple muffin recipe that seems perfect for a fall dinner.

Ali N Son

So I was doing really good finding some nice wholesome food.  Then it Went All Down Hill from There.  Because I found this:

Almond Joy Bread
Wives with Knives

This wonderful bread is chuck full for coconut, almonds, and chocolate.  It is then covered with a coconut glaze and decorated with chocolate ganache.  My son-in-law loves coconut bread.  I have a favorite recipe that I make him every Christmas, but I can't wait to try this one.

And then I found this: 

Brandy's Crafts

What a concept.  Using candy to make candy.  And so easy.  Just melt candy corn, mix with peanut butter chill and dip into melted chocolate.  These are definitely going onto my Christmas platters this year.  So next week, I will make another effort to find healthier recipes.

As always, I am most anxious to see what everyone else has found this week.

  1. I am thinking the same as week I will TRY to find healthier recipes. But I just have to say, those butterfingers look delish!

  2. Thank you for the link to my Cumin Carrot Fries. They are so delicious and a perfect side dish. Great reminder to make these again sometime. Have a great day!

  3. I'm bookmarking the Carrot Fries. I'm optimistic about my family liking them. :)
