Friday Favorites from The Barefoot Contessa, Everyday Occasions, Belleau Kitchen, Savor Home and More

Good morning! Happy weekend! I am so excited for the weekend because there will be lots of food, fun, family, Fall and more. The perfect weekend!

I had a busy week and I spent most of my free time looking at recipes to try at this Fall and for the holidays. I like to test things a few times before I serve it to guests, a lesson that I learned from Ina Garten. So, I should warn you that this weeks Friday Favorite's will consists mostly of food.

Speaking of Ina, this week I was searching for an easy, lemon chicken recipe and this one from Ina Garten is fabulous! I served it with a green salad and brown rice and it was an easy weeknight dinner. 

Belleau Kitchen

I love to bake but most of the time I make sweet things, this week I discovered a savory apple pie that I cannot wait to try. It is from Belleau Kitchen and is an Bramley Apple and Sausage Pie. Doesn't this look scrumptious?

Everyday Occasions

Apples and pork are a great combination in the Fall, this week Jenny at Everyday Occasions featured Roasted Pork Loin with Apples and Onions, Cheddar grits and Autumn Salad. This would make a beautiful, and tasty Sunday lunch.

Of course I could not end the week without featuring something sweet and this Cinnamon Apple Crumb Cake by OMG Chocolate Desserts seems like the perfect sweet treat to try this Saturday morning.

Like you I love to learn about new books, movies, recipes or whatever. This week at Tiffany at Savor Home featured 5 Inspiring Pod Casts that I have to check out! 

What about you, did you see any great moires, read any good books are perhaps you made something out of this world? If so please share.

I hope that you have a happy and safe weekend!


  1. GOod morning Elizabeth! Always a treat to find in your blog! Enjoy this wonderful Friday. Anita

  2. You always make me want to get in the kitchen and cook my days away (something I have not done in a while because of my bad arm)...I think I might just do it this afternoon! Wishing you a beautiful weekend, Elizabeth! xoxo

  3. That cinnamon apple cake looks to die for!

  4. These all look so delish Elizabeth! I always love my Friday visits here. I hope you are enjoying your October so far....

  5. I finished a novel, "Kitchens of the
    Great Midwest," which had a food
    theme running through it but was
    a story with a lot of great characters
    and also included some recipes : )

    I often catch NPR's "The Splendid
    Table" on Saturday mornings, and
    I think it's available as a podcast, too.
    Always inspiring!

    I think this is my favorite
    time of year to cook and to
    try new recipes, too. I know
    your guests will be treated
    like royalty -- lucky them!

    Happy Friday,
    xo Suzanne

  6. We get Ina over here, on a cooking channel, and I have enjoyed her shows very much, especially the bits inbetween cooking when you see her lifestyle. Summer is defininitely over, once the urge to cook with varying types of pork and apple comes over you! I tend to make things up or rely on my old 1950s Good Housekeeping Bible, never fails for baking.
