Friday Favorites Simply Recipes, The Pastry Affair, Home Bunch, Once Upon A Chocolate Life and More





Good morning! How was your week? Are you enjoying the first week of Spring? My week could not be better because my mom is visiting. We always have a great time together, baking, talking, working on projects and just enjoying one anthers company. 

I have been trying out new recipes on my mom as well.





Yesterday I made this  Carbonnade Beef and Beer Stew from Simply Recipes. It is not only easy but delicious and can be served over french fries, potatoes or noodles or just eaten plain with some vegetables. 






If you are looking for an easy sandwich for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner check out the Hot Ham and Cheese Roll-Ups using Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough that I recently made for the Rhodes Blog. They are great with a bowl of fruit for breakfast, or a salad for lunch or dinner. They are also great as appetizers for parties, picnics and weekend game days.

I cannot wait to make these Oatmeal Fudge Bars from The Pastry Affair.





But if you want something a little more decadent what not try this Oreo Fudge Baked Cheesecake.

I love a cute beach house and the Beach Cottage featured on Home Bunch looks like the perfect place to spend summer days.

Have you seen the movie Collateral Beauty with Will Smith? I watched it last night and I really liked it.

What is the secret to happiness? I am not sure but here are 3 Habits of the Happiest People in the World

I always write "to-do lists" do you? Are you successful at ticking things off of your list? If not perhaps you want to try this list instead.

If you read a good book, watched a movie that you enjoyed or made a delicious recipe I would love to hear about.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I'm going to make the Carbonnade Beef this weekend! No doubt, my men will love it. The ham and cheese rolls look amazing too.

    Last week I used a rump roast, Herdez Salsa, Herdez Salsa Verde, fresh garlic and chili powder in the crock post. We shredded it for tacos and it was fabulous!
