Friday Favorites, 4.1.11

Happy April Fools' Day. :) You may notice that the title of my blog post is a little different than usual since it's not the name of a tasty treat that you'd eat. Hmmm, what's going on? I assure you that I'm not playing an April Fools' joke on you - don't worry! However, Mother Nature is playing a joke on us with this snow in New England today!! Anyway, back to the point... I was brainstorming about my blog recently, trying to figure out a way to "switch it up" a bit. And I came up with Friday Favorites!

Every Friday, what I'd like to try to do is share with you a few recipes, websites, or ideas that I've found throughout the week that piqued my interest! The actual content and number of items I share may vary from week to week, but it'll hopefully provide you with a few fun new recipe ideas, introduce you to some other cooking/baking websites or blogs, or anything else at all really! Perhaps some weeks all of my favorites will have a theme. The possibilities are endless. I'm not limiting myself with these favorites, folks. Heck, maybe one week I'll share with you a picture of my favorite sweater or pair of shoes or something. ;-) But for this week, I'm going to stick to my general cooking and baking theme in the Barbershop. Here goes!

Disclaimer: these are in no particular order!

These look so light, fluffy, and just plain heavenly, don't they? This post on Brown Eyed Baker about doughnuts was actually created by a guest blogger (not the usual Brown Eyed Baker herself), and as a result, I discovered a fabulous new blog, Sugarcrafter. What a lovely, delicious blog! I'd highly recommend browsing through some of her recipes.

2) King Arthur Flour's (April) fools rush in...

This is too funny!

This is a post by my good friend Jenn over at LiveWellFitNow (you've heard me mention her before ;-)). She has three delicious and nutritious recipes using kale. YUM! I still have yet to cook with kale, but it's on my ever growing cooking/baking to do list. I think Jenn has inspired me with this post to buy some very soon and make one of these yummy recipes!

Well, there you have this week's Friday Favorites. I hope you enjoyed! I'd love to know what you think about my potential new weekly "edition" on the blog. Thanks!
