Friday Favorites from Smitten Kitchen, My Modern Met, The Drifter Collective, Genius Kitchen and More

Winter Shadows

Good morning! I hope that you had a good week. I cannot believe that there is a blizzard warning for this weekend for parts of the country, we are going to have severe winds, rain and flooding. Fasten your seat belts people, it's going to be a bumpy ride. 


Yesterday was National Grilled Cheese day, and this French Onion Grilled Cheese Sandwich is one of my favorites. 

Nutella Stuffed French Toast

If you like Nutella then you will want to check out this post of 26 Easy Nutella Recipes from Genius Kitchen.  

Fig Newtons from Smitten Kitchen

I love fig newtons and this homemade version from Smitten Kitchen is on my list to make. 


Lately there seems to be articles everywhere about "self-care", getting massages, taking time for yourself, bubble baths, etc. I like this post from The Drifter CollectiveHow to Add Compassion to Your Self Care Routine

This is a great article: 10 Habits of Mentally Strong People

You have to watch this video, How the Worst Moments in Our Lives Make Us Who We Are.

Have you seen the movie Jungle? I watched it this week and it was interesting. 

That's it for this week. I hope that you share whatever recipes, books, movies or article you found this week. 

Stay safe in the crazy weather and enjoy your weekend. 


  1. Self-care is like the airplane safety rule about putting on your own oxygen mask before helping others. You can't serve if you're broken down.

  2. I've never heard of combining Nutella with French toast.
