So let’s get to this week’s Favorite Finds!

favorite finds

  1. Lately I’ve been semi obsessed with cooking Moroccan or other Eastern inspired cuisines. When I saw these Moroccan Stuffed Peppers at Diane’s blog,  Simple Living and Eating, I immediately added them to my list of recipes to try. If you’re looking for more healthy, delicious recipes, be sure to stop by Diane’s blog!
  2. Another great healthy recipe that I found this week was this wonderful Orzo Salad with Kale, Chickpeas, Red Onion and Feta Cheese. Can we say DELISH?! I love all of these ingredients and can’t wait to try this recipe. I just recently found Laurie’s blog, Love, Laurie, and so far, I’ve absolutely loved every recipe she’s shared on her blog. I think you will too!
  3. Cheesecake. It’s one of my favorite desserts. And of course, I absolutely love lemon. When I saw this New York Cheesecake with Lemon Curd over on Lorraine’s blog, Cooking for the Seven Dwarfs, I had to go find some napkins because I began to drool. Cheesecake with lemon curd? Yes please!
  4. If you love sweet treats, then you love Liz’s blog, A Sweet Baker. You’ll find mouth-watering cakes, cookies, brownies and muffins on the pages of this blog. I love these Stained Glass Valentines Cookies. What a creative way to bake a cookie!
  5. As you may know, the world celebrated World Nutella Day on February 5th. In honor of this day, I ate 2 spoonfuls of Nutella! Then I found these awesome Nutella Cupcakes by Sarah from Fantastical Sharing of Recipes and I was wishing I had one of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love Nutella alone but Nutella Cupcakes? That’s one fantastic sweet treat!

I hope you enjoyed this week’s favorite finds. Which one was your favorite?
