Happy Weekend!

I'm writing this in the midst of a winter storm. It's April 14th and the only word I can think of is "cruel". This has been one crazy spring. It's a good thing that my major plan for the weekend is to finish painting our daughter's bedroom!

My Favorite Things this week... It was so fun to share in the launch party celebration of this cookbook (link here) here in Minnesota this week. Did you see the beautiful citrus-poppy seed cookies I made from the book? They have been a total hit with family and friends, and the recipe has everyone buying this scoop (link here) so they can make the cookies in the very same way!

I'm sharing a crazy great GIVEAWAY that ENDS TOMORROW >>> scroll down a bit for more details!

Thank you so much for joining me here each week, for reading the blog, and for following along on social media. I am so grateful for your company.

Have a great weekend!


NEW: On The Blog This Week

Substantially sized bakery-style Citrus-Poppy Seed Cookies are delightfully tender and bright with lemon and orange. Poppy seeds and corn meal add wonderful flavor and texture. This is one extra amazing cookie, my friends!

Carnitas is one of our family’s favorite taco meals. The pork is ultra tender, flavorful, and super simple to make. I get so much great feedback from people who make this recipe!

Have you been to a Fresh Thyme store before? I visited the new store in Prospect Park (MN) this past week and was so very impressed. Maybe you saw my Instagram story that day? I'm rallying for a store closer to where we live - I want to shop here weekly!


CRUMBS: What We Made This Week

Fresh Corn Salsa is my favorite way to salsa!

I created this salsa in celebration of the Grand Opening of the latest Fresh Thyme store in Minnesota. I've been dipping tortilla chips into it, eating it as a side with my morning eggs, and topping enchiladas with it. So good!
