Friday Favorites from Broma Bakery, Iowa Girl Eats, Pip & Ebby, Well Plated and More

Good morning! I hope you had a great week. Are you ready for the weekend? I am so ready as I mentioned yesterday, to just relax and nest. Throw in some tasty meals and a book and I will be content. 

This week it seems that comfort food was on the mind of many, including myself. Chocolate and cookies are a perennial favorite, typically the dough or the cookies still warm from the oven. This week, Broma Bakery made Copycat Levian Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookies. I already whipped up a batch of this dough and it is "marinating" in my fridge as I type this. I will keep you posted on how they taste.

In addition to chocolate and cookie dough, pasta, in particular spaghetti is one of my favorite things to eat. In fact for many years as a child it is the only things I would eat. Thankfully I have grown out of that phase and eat spaghetti only occasionally. This week, Iowa Girl Eats made a 30 minute Vegetable Ragu and I can tell you it is FABULOUS! I made it this week and it was a challenge not to eat the entire pan!

 While sitting around reading, watching a movie or relaxing this weekend a dip or two would be an excellent snack. Pip & Ebby made Crock Pot Ruben Dip that looks easy and delicious.

And She Wears Many Hats made Baked Bacon Cheese Onion Dip. I have had this dip without the bacon and it is delicious. It would make a fabulous addition to your Super Bowl party.

Last but not least, MY FAVORITE thing in the world! I could literally live on hot chocolate, chocolate chaud, or European drinking chocolate. Whatever you call it, it is thick, rich and delicious. This delectable recipe from Well Plated is based on the famous hot chocolate from Angelina's. So if you are craving a little chocolate, or a reminder of your last trip to Paris you should try this recipe.

I know there are many books, movies, and other interesting things around the web this week that I could have posted about but sometimes it really is all about comfort and food.

If you found something great this week, please share!

Have a safe and happy weekend.
