Friday Favorites

Sniff, cough, sniff, sniff.  This is what my week has been like.  A nasty cold decided to attack me last weekend and has over-stayed its welcome.  Annoying.  This means that I didn’t end up doing any baking last weekend and have drank a lot of tea and slurped a lot of soup this week.  Oh, and I feel like my nose might fall off.  I am determined to kick this bug and bake again!  There are some St. Patrick’s Day goodies that I really want to make, so hopefully you’ll be seeing the results next week!

It wouldn’t be a Tax Season Friday if I didn’t show you my countdown jars…

Ohhhhh I'm halfway there!!!!!

Ohhhhh I’m halfway there!!!!!

Now it’s time for Friday Favorites!  Please enjoy my favorites from around the web.  Also, have a fantastic weekend!  We’re looking forward to a blizzard tomorrow…hopefully the last of the year.

Favorite Drink: Warm Green Tea Lemonade.  This might just be the perfect drink for this nasty cold.

Favorite Accessory: Four Corners Bracelet.  My clothes are pretty tame.  Sensible, one might say.  I will step outside my comfort zone for some flashy accessories though.  This bracelet will jazz up my cardigan ensembles. 🙂

Favorite Cookie: Fluffernutter Cookies.  Marshmallows + Peanut Butter = Gooey Goodness.  All that goodness comes in only 6 ingredients, ‘nuf said.

Favorite Guide: Planting a Vegetable Garden.  Could this be the year that I have a garden??  Time to turn my thumbs green!

Favorite Flavorful Meal: Slow Cooked Jerk Pork with Caribbean Salsa.  Flavor galore!!  Take a bite and close your eyes really tight and imagine you’re on a beach.  Sigh.

Favorite Cleaning Tips: 10 Things to Clean with Vinegar.  Check out this list if you want a clean house (and who doesn’t).  The top things on my hit-list are the coffee maker and the garbage disposal.  P to the U, does our garbage disposal stink!

Favorite PieButterscotch Cream Pie.  Now wouldn’t this be a great dessert for a not-so-far-in-the-future summer BBQ?

Favorite Spring DecorI am loving this springy arrangement, it’s so fresh and bright!

Favorite Breakfast: Sausage-Cheddar Biscuits.  Confession: in college my weakness was driving through McDonalds for a Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit on the weekend.  I haven’t done that in years, but the hankering for those biscuits hasn’t gone away.  This recipe looks like it will cure my need for a tasty breakfast biscuit!

Favorite House Finder: Hotpads.  Josh & I have used this website A LOT in the last few years (we’ve moved 5 times).  It’s a fantastic website if you’re looking to rent, buy, or just dream of the perfect house.  Someday our search will end!

Favorite Mug Recipe: Microwave Mug Brownie.  After I made that Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mug last Friday, I have been keeping my eyes peeled for more easy mug recipes.  This one is a jaw-dropper!

Favorite Cup: Turn a canning jar into a travel mug.  Yes, please!!!

Favorite Dip: Layered Greek Dip.  Oh, yum.  This dip needs to get in a bowl in front of my face immediately.

Favorite Outfit: Fabulous transition into spring outfit.  I would be very happy if all of these pieces magically appeared in my closet tomorrow morning.

Favorite Bars: Mini Lemon Bars Recipe.  Think if I make these bars spring will be sprung???

Favorite Pasta: Rigatoni Pasta Pie.  Use a springform pan to make this beautiful dish.  Quite the impressive presentation!

Favorite Funny: Mustache Eggs.  The Clark household will be making mustached Easter eggs this year.

Happy Friday!
