I know, I know, I should just change the title of this blog to Stars of the Week, haven't done much else lately. Please pardon me! I've been feeling under the weather for the past couple of weeks but now I'm feeling better and I've been working on new recipes. Coming soon!!!
Before I start my weekly recap, I just want to mention that my wonderful hubby, Steve, woke me up with a delicious breakfast this morning - coffee, bacon and Cinnamon Roll Pancakes by Elly Says Opa! (featured two weeks ago on Stars of the Week). He didn't make the filling (which I'm sure is the best part) because he knows I'm on Weight Watchers and weekday pancakes and bacon were already pushing the envelope! But no regrets, these pancakes were well worth the points! They are stiff competition to our current favourites, Buttermilk Chai-Spiced Pancakes and Yogurt Pancakes, thanks to their comforting cinnamon taste and their velvety texture. YUM!
Now on with the show:
Brussel Sprouts with Bacon, Walnuts and Balsamic Vinegar by Daily Unadventures in Cooking
Yes, I'm featuring brussel sprouts. They sound delish. And besides, veggies are good for you. So there. (Don't mind me, I'm feeling petulant.)
Caramel Walnut Brownies by Sassafras Cafe
Roasted Fall Vegetable Salad with Warm Goat Cheese & Honey Mustard Vinaigrette by Luna Cafe
I'm not a big fan of goat cheese (okay, let's be honest, I hate it) but if I did like it, this recipe would be a winner. I love the idea of roasted vegetables in a salad and I will try that concept shortly. Perfect for fall!
Lobster Mac and Cheese by Time in the Kitchen
Lobster + Mac and Cheese = JOY and angels singing
Crayon Cookies by Beach Vintage
Warning! Do not eat these cookies!!! Seriously, how cool are these?! I wish I knew a kid I could make these for!
