It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these posts and because I’ve had a super busy week, had a cake explode in my oven, had a cocktail explode in my face and am spending today making lobster mac and cheese to feed our faces… now seemed like the perfect time.

dinner last sunday!

I don’t think it’s any secret that I’m enthralled with coconut, so I am totally in love with these carrot, apple and coconut pancakes. I’m not a huge fan of carrots (shocker) but I think I can tolerate a handful with the promise of other delicious fruits.

And speaking of coconuts and breakfasts, my eyes nearly bulged out of my head when I spied this coconut CRUSTED french toast. Puhlease.

Okay, one more and I’m done: crockpot coconut rice pudding. I’ve never even had rice pudding. I’m so deprived.

I’d like to wash that all down with a whipped root beer float cocktail. Ummmm… wouldn’t you?

What’s that? You need something savory? Homemade kettle chips. Do it.

Another fascination of mine is anything s’mores related, so uh… these puffy cloud s’mores? I can’t even stand it.

Sweet potatoes + goat cheese = tater tots? This just equals me going ballistic. I don’t think I even care about regular tater tots (though they are one of my husband’s faves) and now they are all I can think about.

Not sure what I love more… these frozen yogurt dots or the little cutie pie waiting to eat them.

I can ensure you that for the rest of my life my lunch will include this grilled cheese.

Obviously I save the best for last: caramel bacon popcorn. Now I’m dead.

Best thing you’ve seen this week? Go go gadget.

        It’s from the TV show Inspector Gadget! He used to say “Go go gadget helicopter” or whatever of his gadgets he wanted to use.

          No I know that, the person above was referring to a band.

    I know that you, like me, are not crafty. So I know you’ll appreciate that I have a Pinterest board called, “For the day I become crafty.” I love this idea. I *think* I could do it, but I’m sure I’ll find a way to screw it up. http://pinterest.com/pin/15410823694970299/

    Well, it wasn’t this week but it’s my new favourite addiction….home made enchilada sauce. We can’t stop with this sauce! I got the recipe online about a month ago and we’ve made them 3 times. If I was going with what’s floated my boat this week I’d have to say your Thai enchiladas, hands down, but I’ve not made them yet.

    ps. I’ve taken to visiting your site pretty much every day or two and every time I do I get James Taylor stuck in my head. You’ve probably heard this said a lot but doesn’t this happen to you?? I know you love him but you must CONSTANTLY be singing that song.

    • Jessica — April 6th, 2012 @ 8:32 am

      I need to make my own because we LIVE on enchiladas! And yes… that is why from site is named what it is… from the song… so I constantly sing it. :)

Thanks for all the ideas and recipes! Anyway, this is my latest somewhat healthy treat, and is great for Lent too, for those of us who can’t eat meat on Fridays!

    The one thing you mentioned that screamed “try me!” were the carrot, apple and coconut pancakes. My computer recognizes that link as a porno link and will not allow me to open. Even if I google search it and attempt to open it. Maybe I shall try to open it at home, rather than work! Have a wonderful weekend!

    I know you love your coconut! I made coconut water champagne punch today and thought of you when I posted it…thinking I bet you’d like it.

    And when I saw that bacon caramel corn, I immediately thought of you. And yes, coconut milk + rice pudding is the ONLY way I will make it now. To make it with just water or plain milk feels so…plain!
