friday favorite finds, 9.9.11

It’s Friday! So that means it’s time to link up with Finding Joy in My Kitchen‘s Friday Favorite Finds. I tried a couple new recipes this week. One no one really cared for (whole wheat penne with sundried tomato cream sauce). The other was a huge hit, so I’ll lead with that. Here are my Pinterest food finds for the week.


Yesterday I whipped up these No-Bake Energy Bites, but substituting chia for the flax seed. A-MA-ZING! I didn’t expect to like them as much as I do. My 9 year old loved them and took two for his morning snack at school. I think these lend well to substitutions. I might try using maple syrup instead of honey, dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips, and maybe adding some nuts next time I make these.

And here are a few recipes I’m dying to try:

Roasted Tomatoes with Shrimp & Feta

  1. The Florida Avacado Wrap looks amazing. I love wraps.

  2. Oh my I want everything on your list!

  3. I love butternut squash and black beans together so that rice recipe caught my eye. I also like the energy bites…I’ll have to try them with sun butter {allergic to nuts}.
