Friday Finds


Here are some great recipes and ideas that I found in my travels around the web this week:

Mel's Kitchen Cafe

Yet another Alfredo Sauce that I want to try.  This one includes garlic which we love around here.


Chinese Orange Barbecue Cashew Chicken
Debbie Does Dinner Healthy

This is another oriental dish that look really good, and that I will have to try very soon.  I have some leftover orange marmalade in the fridge and recently bought chicken on sale.

Oven Fries with Genuine Fry Sauce
Make Myself at At Home

These look like they would be really wonderful the next time I make hamburgers for lunch.  I, personally, can't have too many ways to fix potatoes in my recipe arsenal.

Faux Pecan Pie 
Southern Plate

When is a pecan pie not a pecan pie?  When it is made with pretzels.  What a clever concept.  Christy swears that this tastes just like pecan pie so I am taking her word for it.  What a wonderful find for those who have nut allergies.  Pretzels are fat free so that should take some of the guilt out of eating this.

Basic Photo Editing with Picnik
The Mother Huddle

That, obviously, is not a picture of food, but isn't she adorable?  I am just a beginner at editing photos, and Destri has posted a great tutorial for beginners on how to use Picnik.  I have just started to use Picnik in the last month or so, and I think my photos are looking a little better.  Most importantly, maybe, I am resizing them so my blog will load faster.  I had no idea that the photos I was posting were so huge.  Destri has kindly offered to do a post on editing food photos so watch for that in the future.

Note:  the photos in this post were taken by and are the property of the owners of the blogs represented.

I am looking forward to seeing what others have found in their travels around the web this week.  Unfortunately, I will have to wait a couple of days as we will be out of town, and I will have limited computer access.
