Friday Food Finds

Is it Friday already?! This week flew by! I am so thankful that we didn’t have any snow this week (except Sunday) and it has been warmer and sunnier! Here’s a few of my food finds for the week. Enjoy!

What’s under that kilt? 

I’ve been trying to catch up on a little reading this week … to finish book 5 of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander Series, The Fiery Cross.  I’m absolutely hooked on this story! When I heard that the TV series was FINALLY being filmed, I decided I needed to get back to reading.  As a result, I’ve been a bit Scotland-centric this week and my BFF, Stephanie, sent me a link to these Kilt Lifters, err, Baked Scotch Eggs, from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody. They are so simple, and combine two of my favorite things … sausage and boiled eggs.  I always wondered what was under those kilts 😉

Punch with a kick! 

Check out this Cafe Mocha Punch from She Wears Many Hats! Coffee, ice cream and cocoa … what more can you ask for? This is great for a twist on the traditional punch served at wedding and bridal showers, but you could kick it up a bit more with whipped cream vodka and make a killer cocktail! Okay, now I need to have a party!

Here comes Peter Cotton .. Roll?

You may have seen these cute Easter Bunny rolls by now, but I couldn’t resist.

Nicole, from Mom Always Finds Out, gives us an easy recipe to add a little whimsy to your dinner table … whether it’s Easter or not! 


I LOVE pasta … a lot … in any shape with any sauce! Fettuccine Alfredo is one of my favorites, but I tend to shy away from making it too often because of the heavy cream, butter and cheese that goes into a great Alfredo.  I think I could eat it nearly every day if I let myself. That would be bad! This Creamy Avocado Pasta from the Flourishing Foodie might just allow me to eat more of my favorite meal without worrying about having a heart attack … seriously, we call my Fettuccine Alfredo the “Heart Attack Special” because of the amount of cream and butter! Everything in moderation, right!? Using wheat noodles with these avocados makes it even healthier!

A Traditional Scottish Drink for Hogmanay

One thing you have not yet learned about me is that I also LOVE whiskey.  I’m sure it is a genetic trait handed down by some Scottish ancestor, but I’ll gladly take it.  Christina’s Cucina has a great recipe for Atholl Brose, a traditional drink for Hogmanay (New Year’s Eve).  This is such a unique drink that I’m simply compelled to share it.
