Let’s Chat | Delicious Links

Do you have a minute? Can we chat?

I don’t have any elaborate stories to share today. I just felt like talking. Nothing fancy. It’s just that there is so much deliciousness out there, I thought that perhaps today I would share with you what has caught by eye this week, what has inspired me to create. Aside from tweeting and pinning and facebooking, I just wanted to share the “old fashioned way.”

Some of my fellow food bloggers have made my heart jump with some of their delicious creations. I would love to know, what has caught your eye this week? Feel free to share with me in the comments below. I’m always hungry for more.

As for me, these dishes are on my short list to create:

delicious links

King’s Hawaiian Vanilla Bean Bread Pudding with Spiced Rum Gooey Sauce | Okie Dokie Artichokie

Potato Chip Cookie | Authentic Suburban Gourmet

Spicy Pork Stew | Lemons & Anchovies

Nutella Truffles | My Baking Addiction
(side note: I did make this, and they are pure decadence)

Almond Fudge Brownies with Raspberry Ice Cream | Fresh

Chocolate Nutella and Hazelnut Brownie Cake | Sips and Spoonfuls

Tortang Talong (Eggplant Omelet) | Jun-Blog

Kale Frittata | The Faux Martha

I guess it’s pretty obvious I have a thing for chocolate.

I also have a thing for apple pie. In case you are looking for a simple way to get your apple pie fix, without the fuss, I thought I would share my version of Maple Glazed Apple Blossoms, which can be found in the Good Eats section of Wayfair’s My Way Home. They’re bite sized. They adorable. They’re as fun to make as they are to eat.

Oh! And one more thing. I thought I would mention that if you haven’t already, do check out the newly launched Foodie.com! I’m excited to be a Featured Author, and I won’t lie, it was kinda cool seeing Kitchen Confidante mentioned in the press release (you’ll have to scroll down to paragraph 8). Think of it as a Facebook for foodies. You can connect with fellow food lovers, food bloggers, chefs, etc. I encourage you to find me there and have a look around. There’s a lot of yumminess.

So! What delicious things do you have planned for this weekend? Anything catch your eye? What is on your short list of things to make?

    Hey Liren – I will have to check out Foodie – looks interesting. Thank you for the shout out on the potato chip cookies. I sent the recipe to the one office that brought them to and I think several of the folks are going to make them over the weekend. A complete hit and I must warn you, hard to eat just one. :-) Over the long weekend, I am going to make coconut marcona almond brittle alone with multiple flavors of deviled eggs. I am sure that other things will pop into my head that I will have a craving for. Hope you and the family enjoy the long holiday weekend. Look forward to seeing you soon!! :-)

      Lisa, I wished I lived a wee bit closer…then I’d be sure to visit you on the weekends! LOL. So much yummy stuff in your kitchen. I can not wait to try the cookies – I forgot to buy potato chips, so that is on my list for next week!!!!!

      There’s nothing like leisurely brunches on the weekends! Hope you had a good one!

    Great links – love them all.

    I’m off to foodie.com as soon as I tell you I’m going to make a brioche cassonade tomorrow. Fingers crossed it doesn’t have to go in the bin. :)

    I’ve had my eye on these Roasted Garlic Mushrooms from Authentic Suburban Gourmet for awhile now. Capers and lemon juice, love them both but who would have thought . . .

    They were wonderful! And crusty bread dipped in the juices – yum.

      Oh, I agree, that would be just perfect with some warm, crusty bread! Mm!

      I was thinking just the same thing when I first saw your comment, Gina. The light has been so sporadic, hope you got to photograph a lot this weekend!! I could use a spring roll right now!

    There is so much deliciousness out there! I’ve been pinning away – mostly healthy stuff though ;) Those tiny apple blossoms are adorable and I’ve got to check out Lisa’s potato chip cookies! Congrats on being featured at Foodie.com – I’ll check it out.

      LOL, I guess that means even more time to clock at the gym!! Pinterest is particularly irresistible for all those sweet treats!
