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:

Chocolate Cream of Coconut Cake (Inside BruCrew Life)
I love this flavor combination for a traditional poke cake. It looks so fluffy and moist, plus it packs tons of coconut flavor.

French Toast Muffins (Two Peas and Their Pod)
These are perfect for brunch or overnight guests; I might even add a little bacon to them 🙂

Peach Vanilla Bean Bundt Cake (Week of Menus)
This cake just screams summer; I’m ready!

Potato Skins Mac and Cheese (A Spicy Perspective)
I just died and went to heaven. I cannot make this fast enough.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie (Joy the Baker)
This is such a beautiful pie, and I love that the crumb topping has coconut in it.

What was the best thing you ate this week??

Have a delicious weekend!

    Yum yum yum. All of this looks so good! I really want some of that chicken!! The best thing I ate this week was the GF Cornmeal Crusted Pizza I made earlier in the week. It was exactly how a pizza should taste, without the gluten! Have a lovely weekend!

    Oooh I could go for an iced coffee if I didn’t need to sleep soon. Best thing I made this week was also the simplest: a smoothie with strawberries, blueberries, ginger, wheat germ and almond milk.

    I missed the buttermilk chicken somehow. Will definitely have to give it a try. Have fun packing and good luck on your move.

    I wish you all the best getting packed up and moved in. It’s so much work but so nice when its over! I had some spectacular pizza and minestrone last night at Filippi’s Pizza Grotto in Napa. Delicious, and my new fave! Have a great and very productive weekend!
