Friday Favorites from Food Gracious, Climbing Greer Mountain, Recipe Runner and More

Good morning! Happy Friday! I am so ready for the weekend. I have been dragging this week, almost like I am walking with cement shoes and had no motivation to do anything except read blogs and find things to share with you this week. Get a cup of coffee because I found a lot to share with your this week.

Taco's are one of my favorite foods and I cannot wait to make these Fall inspired, Butternut Squash and Chirizo Tacos from Foodness Gracious.

My other favorite food is queso dip and this Roasted Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Queso Dip from Climbing Greer Mountain is on my list for today! I will let you know how it tastes.

On a lighter note this Harvest Quinoa Salad from Recipe Runner looks delicious and refreshing. 

Jack O'  Lantern Hand pies from Acorns & Custard are a great treat to make with your kids for a Halloween party.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars are always a great idea for Fall as are my 5 Chocolate Favorites for the week.

Fall Decorating Ideas

Gwen from The Makerista is an amazing interior designer who also happens to love Halloween. Check our her fabulous Halloween post.

This Faux Pumpkin Real Flower Arrangement is a cool idea for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

The beautiful Ballyfin, an Irish country house, that Bettie from Private Newport recently visited is a place to put on your "Wish List." 

You Should Be Eating Pie For Breakfast. I need not read any further than the title of this article. I could eat pumpkin pie every day.


I ordered Becoming Mrs. Lewis.  Have you read it?

Jane Austen

I recently discovered these Book-to-Table classics and this one is great Jane Austen  fans. All of the recipes for the tea tie treats are by Martha Stewart

Christmas Carol

Although to some(not to me), it might be too early to be thinking about Christmas there is also a Christmas Carol version with recipes from Trisha Yearwood, Martha Stewart and many more of your favorite chefs. 

Christmas Tartan

You know I love tartan so I have to share these Christmas tea towels.

And these cool tartan cupcake toppers which are made with edible paper. Now you can have a tartan dessert for your next holiday party!


I love this Bohemian dress from H& M.

That is it for this week, I hope you did not fall asleep reading this post and that you found a few things that you liked. 

Please share all of your recipes, books, podcasts, movies and whatever else you discovered this week. 

Have a happy and safe weekend.

  1. That dip looks healthy enough to be dinner. Hmmm....
    I cannot think about Christmas. We still have the windows open at night. Not yet!!!!

  2. Been on a mex binge while working on sites this week...delicious and a treat!
    Sometimes home cooked foods like these are just not quite the same!

  3. Looks like some great links, Elizabeth. Have a good weekend!

  4. So much to love! I can't wait to try the tacos, a family favorite and anything chocolate is the perfect way to end the meal. You are going to love Becoming Mrs. Lewis - it's wonderful! Happy weekend, my friend!

  5. I'll take the salad and pies please! Hope the contractors are finished. Enjoy your weekend! In a few hours we'll have a third family member in the house.

  6. Those Jack o'Lantern hand pies are a neat sight.

    This coming Monday is Thanksgiving in Canada.
