With my new job taking up my weekends, I’m having a bit of a hard time getting these weekly roundups to you on Friday But I am going to try harder! That being said, I’m going to start calling them Weekend Finds instead of Friday Finds, so hopefully I feel less guilty writing them on Sunday night.
1. Homemade Milano Cookies
When I was younger, my mother loved Milano cookies. We would occasionally have a bag of them in the pantry, and after dinner I would sneak in and eat one… or two… or three. They are probably my favorite cookies for dipping in coffee and tea. This homemade version looks absolutely beautiful.
2. Zucchini overload
These days, there are those whose gardens are overflowing with gigantic zucchini, and after the 10th batch of zucchini bread, wish they could think of something else to do. Here are 10 other ideas.
3. Squash blossom quesadillas with tomatillo salsa
Speaking of zucchini, if you’ve still got any blossoms left, or some small fruits attached to the blossom, I would certainly jump on this quesadilla train immediately.
4. Personalized Pyrography Cutting Boards
As soon as I saw this, I was dying over how beautiful and simple it was to make your own personalized wood-burned cutting board. If I have my way, I know what everyone I know will be getting for Chrismakkah. Also, pyrography is an awesome word.
5. Pluot and Poppy Yogurt Bowl
I am consistently pleasantly surprised at the unique flavor combinations over on 101 cookbooks. She combines foods in a really wonderful way, and this pluot and poppy yogurt bowl is no different. And her photos are so beautiful. Now I just need to go pick up some pluots.
