Friday Favorites from Sprinkles Bakes, Etsy, From the House of Edward, Between Naps on the Porch and Mroe

Happy St.Patrick's day and a happy Friday to you. I am sure that many of you who have been in the path of the snow storm are ready for the weekend. I know that I am. It has been a crazy week here between work, all of the workers coming and going and the freezing cold weather I want to stay in and do nothing.  OK, not nothing but nothing important.

I will be making these Bacon Smoked Beer Bread Muffins from Sprinkles Bakes this afternoon to accompany the Bangers & Mash my husband wants to eat for dinner. 

If you would like a little tasty treat that you can pour on ice cream, cake, cookies or just eat out of the jar try this scrumptious Bailey's Hot Fudge Sauce

If you need a few more recipe for St. Patrick's day check out the 24 Essential St.Patrick's Day recipes for Your Celebration from The Kitchn.

David Leibovitz Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies

David Lebovitz is one of my favorite chefs, cookbook authors and bloggers and I love learning new recipes form him. I think these Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies would be a tasty treat for this weekend. 

Peacock & Wild Poppies  Art from Etsy

I discovered this beautiful peacock painting on Etsy and more from this fabulous artist. 

Pamela at From the House of Edward wrote a great post with her Spring Reading List and if you are looking for something to read to get you through the strange weather this list has some fabulous book. 

Are you a fan of decorating books? Than this post and list by Between Naps on the Porch is something that you need to read for all the latest and greatest in decor. 

Did you see the movie Manchester by the Sea? What did you think?

Did you read, bake, make or see anything interesting this week? If so please share I love learning about new things. 

Have a great weekend. Be safe in the next storm and if you go out to celebrate St. Patrick's day.
