Friday Finds

I found so much good stuff this week that it was very hard to narrow it all down to just a few items to post.  Even then, this is a longer list than usual for me.  Here we go:


Although these do look very good, the main reason I included these is that she made her own au jus from Better than Bouillon, water, and some veggies.  I do not like to buy the commercial product, but just plain beef broth leaves something to be desired.  I am going to give her version a try and see if it is better.  Blogchef always has wonderful recipes, so I bet it is.

Simply Recipes

Cabbage is not a favorite veggie with some, I know, but I like it.  Hubby will not eat cooked cabbage, but I think that I will make this just for myself.  Be sure to read the comments, there are some other great ideas for cooked cabbage there as well.

Bakeaholic Mama

When our wonderful hostess Sno White posted her recipe for Ranch Crackers, I remembered how much fun making homemade crackers was.  I have made a couple of different flavors which I will be posting soon.  Although I did not find a lot of crackers recipes when I did a search I did find some. This week I ran across these, and they sound yummy.

Accidentally Wonderful

This soup is made with rather simple ingredients which I think I can get by my hubby who doesn't care for some of the ingredients in most enchilada soups.  I probably will, however, use my Do-It-Yourself Cream Soup Mix in place of the Cream of Chicken Soup and the recipe linked below in place of the can of enchilada  sauce.

Little Mommy, Big Appetite

I have a recipe for homemade enchilada sauce which I have used a lot, but I want to try this one.  She gives it big raves. 

Squiggy Spice

I can't have too many way to fix broccoli.  This oriental inspired recipe looks like a good one.  I am going to do this one soon.

The Farm Girl

Of course, I must include some sweet goodies in this list.  Cookies that contain candy are an extra special treat for this Cookie Monster's grandmother.  Here is one more using Butterfingers.


Here is one that uses Raspberry Hugs candy and instant cheesecake pudding mix.  Those two items are going on my grocery list for my next shopping trip.  I love cookies with a little-hidden surprise in them.

As usual, the photos were taken by and are the property of the owners of the respective blogs represented.

It is always so much fun to see what other bloggers have found in their travels around the net this week.  I am linking up at Friday Favorite Finds.  Pop on over and see what other have found.
