What’s In Your Kitchen Wednesday

Well, we’ve made it {successfully} through the first week of school.  Doodle has proclaimed his new teacher “awesome,” he’s enjoying playing on the first grade {aka BIG KID} playground, and we’re finally into the swing of a new routine.

Doodle already brought home a sales flyer for the first fundraiser of the year.  I hated selling that stuff when I was a kid, and I hate it even more as a parent.  I’d rather just make a one-time donation to the school in exchange for them agreeing not to put a bug in my kid’s ear that he can “earn” a jumbo-sized pencil and a mini-fridge by selling 20 Entertainment books.

Other than that, we’re heading into karate tournament time and football season (go CATS!) – and you know what that means?!?!  Fall is just around the corner.  I’m ready to break out the pumpkin, apples, and cinnamon and dive head first into fall baking.

Are you ready for pumpkin overload around here?  ‘Cause I have a feeling it’s on its way. 😉  What’s your favorite fall flavor?

Okie-doke, enough chit-chat.  Let’s get onto the features!

This week’s top viewed post were these Lemon Cake Batter Truffles from Simply Suzanne’s At Home.  Suddenly, I have an urge to make a cake! 😉

I’m a sucker for anything boasting fresh mozzarella in the ingredients-list. I’ve gotta try this Caprese Quinoa Salad from Real Housemoms.  Yum!


If you’ve ever wanted to try making your own Creme Brulee but didn’t know where to begin, start with this step-by-step tutorial from Home Cooking Memories.


As much as I love to experiment with new recipes and flavors, a good, traditional Chicken Parmesan is still hands-down one of my favorite dinners.  Check out this version from The Salty Kitchen!

And holy cow, how awesome do S’mores Chocolate Zucchini Muffins sound?  To be honest, I’ve been staring at these from Taste of Lizzy T’s for the last five minutes and wishing a batch would just magically appear in my kitchen.


Thank you all so much for coming back each week to make this party a great success! I love seeing all of your great creations, and it’s such an awesome way for me to find new blogs to stalk read.

    Thanks for hosting the party Ashley! I totally understand about the selling stuff. I’ve always hated that and am not looking forward to when my little one has to start that!

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
