Let me tell you…I limped through this week. But I’m at the finish line. The weekend. Time to spend some quality time with my family, visit with friends and hopefully relax a bit. If I could get a nap? Well, that’d be heaven…and also a bit of a miracle.
I’ve rounded up some fun stuff this week – a luscious single serve dessert (that you microwave, no less!), a super cool lunch carrier and more! Enjoy!
Food I’m Coveting
I love decadent, single serve desserts. Perfect way to indulge without OVERindulging.
I adore fish burgers but don’t make them nearly enough. These look like perfection!
This Week’s Blog Crush
Kath Eats Real Food (or K.E.R.F.) is a great blog by a registered dietician who’s been at this blogging business since 2006. Her story is really interesting and you should totally check out the blog and recipes (which are amazing, but the way).
Sweet Kitchen Find
Do you pack your lunch? If you do, check out this stackable lunch pot! You can take soup or a heatable dish in one part, and a salad or fruit in the other. It’s all microwaveable too!
What’s on My Nightstand
I’m too tired to read this week. What are YOU reading?
Cooking Tip of the Week
I love to cook with wine and I love to drink wine. So obviously I LOVE this tip: never, never, ever cook with wine you wouldn’t drink. Why? Well, when you cook the wine, its flavors become even more concentrated. So if it’s a great wine (and great doesn’t necessarily mean expensive), the flavors will shine. If it’s sub par to begin with, it’ll get even worse.
Plus, you get to drink what you don’t cook!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s Hot Dish! If there’s anything you think I need to know about, speak up! Leave me a note in the comments or shoot me an email at heather at shrinkingjeans dot net.
