What I Bookmarked This Week

Recipes and posts from other blogs that I thought looked especially delicious and that I thought you would like, too:

Banana Pudding Icebox Cake (Life, Love and Sugar)
I love easy, no-bake desserts and this one is especially calling my name this week…

Cheddar Sausage Cornmeal Waffles (Nutmeg Nanny)
Breakfast, lunch and dinner, yes please!

Crispy Shrimp Tacos (Taste and Tell)
These remind me of eating shrimp tacos across the street from the beach in Florida. I could go for some sun and surf right now!

Dulce de Leche Churro Donuts (Oh, Sweet Basil)
Oh my gosh, everything about these look and sound amazing.

Slow Cooker Fudge (Creme de la Crumb)
I love making candy in the slow cooker; I haven’t tried fudge yet. Adding it to the list!

Have a delicious weekend!

    I have been making most of our bread this year. So this weekend I’m going to try making CEMITAS, a request from my brother.

    Yes, I too would love to know more about the grilled cheese bar. I’m always trying to think of ways to fancy up a grilled cheese and would love to know what you put out for that!
