Friday Finds

I missed the last couple of week while we were on our road trip.  Glad to be back.  I link up to a number of link parties when I can.  For the month of June, I am going to share links to wonderful recipes I have found through these parties.  I am also going to share the blogs that host the parties.

Miz Helen's Country Cottage

Miz Helen and I both agree that these are not the healthiest thing to eat, but sometimes you just have to splurge.  A few drive-ins used to serve these, but I have not seen them in years.  I am anxious to try her recipe.  I found this at Hunk of Meat Monday hosted at Beyer Beware.  Be sure to check out the instructions there for browning ground beef in a slow cooker.

The Traveling Spoon

Strawberries and sour cream are a great combination.  Other berries can also be used in this recipe. This one looks like a wonderful summer dessert and was at Melt in Your Mouth Monday hosted at Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms.

Back for Seconds

In my humble opinion, one cannot have too many recipes for cereal mixes.  They are so easy to whip up and have on hand when guests come.  This recipe was linked up to Busy Monday at a Pinch of Joy.

The NY Melrose Family

Aren't these just the cutest?  The blogger made these for her toddler, but I think that they would be great to serve at a party for grownups or for a lunch.  They sound quick and easy, too.  These were at Mop It Up Monday hosted by I Should be Mopping the Floor (love that blog name).

Growing in Grace

This is an interesting idea for mixing bottled Ranch and Italian salad dressings and adding Parmesan cheese.  The salad recipe that is included looks delicious, too.  I found this at Making Monday Marvelous hosted by C.R.A.F.T.

Picture Perfect Cooking

Here is another recipe that would make a great party dish.  I am going to give them a try for our lunches.  I think you could reduce the ingredients back to make a smaller amount if you didn't want as many.  This link came from Must Try Monday at My Favorite Finds.

Heather's French Press

Sometime I cannot find chocolate graham crackers when I want them.  I want to give this recipe a try and maybe I won't need to buy chocolate grahams any more.  This recipe came from Recipe Sharing Monday at Jam Hands.

Storybook Reality

One more recipe that would be great for both a party and for a lunch.  I am always looking for something new to make for lunch.  With the recipes I found this week, I have some new recipes in my arsenal.  This one came from Mangia Monday hosted by both Delightfully Dowling and Shine Your Light.

One Note:  The links to the link up parties are for Monday, June 4, 2012.  If you visit the blogs sometime in the future, click on the home button to find the current link party.

  1. Well, I don't see myself making my own graham crackers, although they look great....but I might try that wonton lasagna!
