What’s a Friday without some favorites? From chewy caramels to kitten headbands, here are my favorite finds from around the web this week. :)
Favorite bite: Garlic Cheese Wontons. Another awesome wonton recipe – this one’s stuffed with melted cheese!
Favorite place. 1 vineyard, $1000 worth of Christmas lights, 5 generators, and a whole lotta’ hard work. Awesome.
Favorite sandwich: Triple-Decker Tomato and Avocado Panini with Mozzarella and Pesto. Yes, yes, yes and oh hells yes.
Favorite kitchen trick. Old parmesan cheese lids fit on mason jars. Good to know!
Favorite photo. Sigh… :)
Favorite seasonal treat: Glazed Gingerbread Scones. I am moving full speed ahead towards holiday flavors – gasp!
Favorite funny. BAHAHAHA!
Favorite Etsy shop: Bellabyte. All of her prints are absolutely adorable.
Favorite furry besties. I hear cat headbands are all the rage in Paris right now…
Favorite healthy bite: Roasted Butternut Squash Farro Salad. I tried farro – a Mediterranean grain – for the first time down here in Cali this week and it is unbelievable. Chewy and filling. Can’t wait to make this at home.
Favorite kitchen tip: DIY glass stove cleaner. I so need to try this quick, easy, chemical-free method for removing burnt food on my glass top stove.
Favorite flashback: Apple Cider Caramels. My Grandma used to make homemade caramels for us every year at Christmas. These remind me so much of those melt in your mouth, absolutely irresistible treats. :)
Favorite find: Photographer’s mittens. These would be oh so handy in the winter time – also useful for iPhones!
Favorite Friday night bite: Smoky Corn & Black Bean Pizza. Cheese, black beans, corn, tomatoes & BBQ sauce. Throw some diced avocado on there to warm in the oven, and I’m sold.
Favorite furball. OMG!!! LOVE!
Favorite feature: Waterfall wall. There was a waterfall wall studded with orchids at the spa here at the Four Seasons and ugh, I could lay in front of it with zen music playing for hours.
Favorite scene. I know. There’s snow in this picture, but I am really feeling the holidays now that Halloween’s over!!
Favorite traveling tip. Use the shower cap they give you in the hotel to wrap up dirty sight seeing shoes. Brilliant!
Favorite sweet treat: Secretly Healthy Chocolate Cake. Apparently each slice is under 100 calories? MMM!!
And with that – I am out. I’ve got a plane to catch! :) TGIF!

Oh my goodness. I just read this today (Tuesday, sorry I’m behind) and I made that pizza over the weekend. It was surprisingly good. I get a little scared about beans, but thought I would give it a shot.

[…] – they are just as good as they sound. I got the idea from Kristin and one of her fabulous Friday Favorites posts, but the recipe is from The Family Kitchen. I’d been wanting to find a use for the 12 […]

I always love your Friday Favourites :-)
Triple-Decker Tomato and Avocado Panini with Mozzarella and Pesto? Yes please!! Oh and gingerbread scones too whilst we’re at it!
That snowy holiday photo is gorgeous, getting a tiny bit excited about Christmas now :-)
Loving those photographers gloves!! Great find :D And those caramels have me drooling
Yay! Heard you are expecting!! Congrats on your little one coming next summer!
I tried the cinnamon roll pumpkin vanilla sheet cake this weekend for our tailgate – awesome! You need to try it! Thanks for the idea. It’s definitely a keeper. One note – If you like icing, I would wait for the cake to cool a bit before drizzling the icing on. Otherwise it mostly melts into the cake, which is good, but it depends what you’re looking for.

I use that black bean pizza recipe ALL THE TIME! In fact, it’s on the menu for Tuesday. It bakes easily in the oven and you can substitute frozen corn in a heartbeat. My only recommendation is to use just a little more bbq sauce and toss the veggies in a small amount – the cheese sometimes has a hard time binding to the toppings. Makes for great leftovers!

WOW! I love the list, and thanks so much for putting my scones there! You gotta try them they stay moist n chewy for a week… I think thats the molasses in them! MMMM!
