Things I’m Loving.
I have a 20 minute dinner to share with you… but I just didn’t feel like it today. Honestly, it includes too many veggies for my liking and I didn’t feel like uploading pictures of tomatoes. Too many vegetables make me convulse. You know this.
So I wanted to share some love – the things I’ve bookmarked in the last week that will inevitably lead me to cook up a frenzy and have to buy new pants. It’s been too long since I’ve done this!
Heather just shared these brownie batter chocolate chip cookies. I think she’s trying to kill me.
Andrea made whole wheat sour cream pancakes. Yessss… whole wheat! I’ll take three short stacks please.
Caitlin talked about the glass being half full. Mine is usually half full… with wine.
Jenna’s carbonara for one is calling my name. I’ve wanted to make carbonara forever and this gives me the kick in the pants to do it.

But I may need to quadruple it since I have a hungry husband.
Some of my favorite bakers made a meyer lemon pound cake. Liking lemon for dessert is new to me, but I’m all over this. Except I’ll probably eat it for breakfast.
I’m really jealous of Rachel’s decorating skills, and I’m envious she doesn’t live with framed photos of WWF wrestlers on her walls.
Maria’s honey yogurt waffles sound sooo good. I don’t eat waffles nearly enough. I’m thinking about making a batch of these for next week. Obviously I’m currently obsessed with breakfast.
Dawn’s chocolate peanut butter bars with BBQ pretzels are making me swoon. Seriously? I want every combination she makes.
Gaby shared her tips for throwing the best kid’s birthday party ever. Um… kids? What about me? I want a party like this. Who cares if I’m pushing 30?

Hold on. I need to go throw up. And cry.
Megan made some margarita mac and cheese. Really? My favorite drink and my favorite meal combined? Give me bacon and I’ll die happy.
Jen shared banana cream cheese muffins. These would last approximately 3.4 seconds in this house.
Angie posted these chocolate crepes with raspberries, which are perfect for Valentine’s Day! Or you know… tomorrow morning.
Karly, my friend who loves bacon just as much as I do, made oreo-stuffed chocolate chip cookies.
And I can’t go without telling you that I made the cake batter pancakes again.
But I used whole wheat flour. I have a problem.
What is one recipe you are dying to make this weekend? Be on the lookout for the 20 minute dinner tomorrow! If you don’t like veggies, you don’t have to look either. I’m gonna cover my eyes while posting it.

Carbonara is my all time favourite….but I love it with cream added to the mix too!
Well I’m sure I’d love that too. Can’t go wrong with cream.
This weekend I don’t nkow if I’m doing ANY cooking – we’re kind of busy with family parties!
Lots of new sites for me to stalk! Yessss.
I’m also dying to try Dawn’s bars!
They look amazing right?
Love all of these! Thanks for sharing :)
What fantastic links!! Cant wait to check them all out!
aw, thanks for including my mac and cheese – you’re nice :) I’m going away for the weekend so I’m not making anything. But I did stay up late last night making scotcharoos, you know, those peanut butter rice krispie bars with chocolate on top? Takes me back to my kid days. Now I just need some cake batter pancakes and Gaby’s birthday party to go along with it :)
I love these links! Maybe you could do it regularly? I trust your judgement so much :)
I’ve thought about it!
I’m going to click on multiple links right now. They all sound/look so good! :-D
All of that food looks sooo yummy! Thinking about making mango muffins this weekend….with the tops dipped in butter and then sugar! =D I loooove the weekend!
Well doesn’t that sound sinful!
I know. I’m thinking they need something to up the sinfulness factor a bit……how about frosted with gooey caramel? =D
All of these look delicious! I especially love carbonara too. Thanks for sharing!
I’m thinking about trying a seafood gumbo. But after seeing the picture of the sprinkle pancakes I may have inform the other half that we’re eating pancakes for every meal.
Seafood gumbo sounds delicious.
Those honey yogurt waffles do sound SO good!!! Yum!
There have been a lot of fun new juice recipes floating around that I want to try. Well, that, and cake batter pancakes of course :-)
I am making your cake batter pancakes, cupcakes for the daughter’s bday, and same chia seed pudding for me :)
Ah, let me know if you like the pancakes!
i was just thinking that i wanted a birthday party like that too! i loved all these things this week…awesome :)
I hope to enjoy more than one half-full glass of wine this weekend!
I could go for those pancakes right now. Delicious. Or cookie dough pancakes…

Jessica, thanks for sharing all of these great recipes with us! Love that you made those cake batter pancakes again…xo
Weekends are the best time to cook… I love spending my Saturday afternoon baking. I haven’t decided what to make tomorrow yet… but these links are great inspiration!!
I’m loving those oreo stuffed cookies too!! And your cake batter pancakes. My goodness!
Now I have so many new blogs to read! ps. didn’t get to make that bread last night but hopefully this weekend!
haha, your aversion to vegetables amuses me :D
I plan on making some sort of baked good. I have baked anything for….a week. This is a problem!
Too early for typing. lol
Yes – Jenna’s carbonara looked soo goood! I am definitely making that at some point.
I’m pregnant and I can think of nothing but those pancakes. I have been so retrained thus far and not made them but we are having a birthday weekend for my 7 year old cousin this weekend and I think it’s the prefect occasion! Right? Because my willpower simply can’t hold out any longer!!
I book marked a bunch of these as well! Dawn is SO creative and I love all of Maria’s recipes. Hope you have a great weekend
the whole wheat pancakes are amazing…just made some the other day with chobani instead of sour cream. SO FLUFFY!
Awesome round up of links! And again, you’re a genius re: cake batter pancakes.
Great. Now I have 15 more blogs to subscribe to :)
Exactly what I was thinking!
Thanks for sharing :) I’m totally obsessed with the honey yogurt waffles too – I REALLY need a waffle iron!
Aw, thanks for sharing my link! You’re pretty.
Off to check out the other goodies you’ve shared!
Just when I thought I could escape it – the pancakes come back to haunt me and my sprinkle obsessed mind!!!
I always love when you do these!
As soon as I get my hands on a box of cake mix, I’m making your pancakes. I LOVE cake batter – perhaps more than cake itself :)
So many recipes,so little time! LOVE the links to bloggers I’ve never stumbled upon before…my strechy pants thank you!
I’m making a pot of my kickin’ corn chowder (can you say spicy, smokey bacon, corn-filled yumaliciousness?) but I probably won’t eat much of it, since I have 8 emails from restaurants for free birthday meals/treats. OMG…so many restaurants, so little time!
That sounds amazing. I wish you could bring me some!
I saw that Carbonara and it looks amazing! And so do your cake batter pancakes — you are a genius.
Looking forward to your 20 minute recipe with veggies!
I think I’m going to attempt baklava this weekend. And get over my fear of filo pastry.
Oh my gosh I LOVE baklava. I am so intimidated by it. Never tried it either.
Thanks for the link to the sprinkle party! Rainbows up sprinkles…count me in!
How could I have been living without these pancakes in my life?
I love recipe round ups like this!
I’m all over those peanut butter bars with bbq pretzels. I saw that yesterday and was immediately drooling. lol
Aren’t they outrageous? Love them.
There’s an awful lot of goodness going on in this post. Holy!
I’ve been dying to make those cake batter pancakes, and Andreas sour cream pancakes. Clearly its going to be a good weekend.
OMG – I should have NEVER read this post on a work from home day.
*runs off to kitchen*
Thanks for featuring my spaghetti! :) Want to have a slumber party? I’ll bring the pasta, you make the pancakes in the morning. The guys can eat chicken.
Wow…I’m going to have to spend some time studying all this deliciousness!!
Oh em gee. Is that glitter? I love all things that come in lots of colors and sparkle!
Although I wouldn’t call myself “excited”, I am trying to get pumped up to roast a chicken this weekend. I think I can. I think I can.
Sprinkles!!! I want a party now.
I also need these PB bars with BBQ pretzels. Genius.
I also bookmarked Jenna’s carbonara for one. Can’t wait to make it!
Im dying to make your cake batter pancakes this weekend. I’m going out tonite and I’ve already decided the first thing I’m doing Saturday morning is making those pancakes! I’ve been drooling over them since you posted them. :)
I’m in a major baking mood. I think I’m going to try your Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread this weekend and these: http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2008/01/cookie_dough_and_candy_/ because I FINALLY found peanut butter cookie dough at the grocery store.
Loving all the link! Someday I hope I make your favorites list ;D Have a great Friday Jessica!!
