Friday Favorites

I did not take this!


It's been awhile since I shared some new things with you from the SOCIAL NETWORKS. And the BLOGS. And all that stuff that just floats around in the webosphere. So here goes.

Shout Outs!

The first goes to Net.Savvy at fiverr.com  I don't know if anyone noticed my (just a little bit to big) pink buttons at the top of my sidebar. I kept trying to add them so that whoever wants can follow me on the respective sites. Took me one full day of getting close to adding them, but never getting them to work. Well, over at fiverr, which is a really cool site where they sell just about anything for $5- I found Net.Savvy who added them for-that's right-$5. Next time I m going straight there if I need any work done on this blog. It's amazing what people offer, so check it out.

Next- these cookies that we all fell in love with - Chocolate, chocolate, gobs that are quarter pounds of goodness

And these nutella s'mores bars cookies that kept disappearing when my father in law was here, I might add. Manservant and I looked at each other and we were like "Who ate them?" Well, that's OK, Paw.

And this pie. All six of us at Yom Kippur dinner raved about this pie. Sounds totally different. But is so uniquely good. You must give this a try.

And I saw another version here.

Grandmas-Who doesn't love grandmas? Take a look at this album of grandmas around the world and their cuisine. Gave me a few tears looking at some of them.

And since we travelled around the world with the grandmas-here is what you should pack courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Globetrot. Take note all of you heavy packers...If I ever get to travel again this is where I'm going to look before I pack.

I have always wanted one of these in my backyard.

If I could pack my bags and go somewhere this weekend, I would go here.

Someone says a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are some that may be.

And if you feel like cooking this weekend I love this list from Saveur.


This morning found a cold chill in the air. At least 200 birds, that have yet to be identified, flocked over our house. They landed in our trees just starting to turn yellow. The high pitched sounds caught our attention as they circled around the house and landed again. And then in a giant, but silent sound, they were gone. It was magical. 

Happy Fall and Happy Weekend!

  1. Nice feature! I've often thought I should do something similar, but am too lazy. One of these days, though! That fiverr.com sounds like a real deal - there's stuff I should do on my blog that I'm putting off simply because I don't want to wrestle with it. I should look into that. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Thanks, John! Fiverr was great for adding those buttons. It really is fun to browse through to see what you can get. Trust me, I know lazy. But every now and then I do try to keep track of something!

  6. I like this post. Great idea to share internet "finds". Wish I could have been there for the bird event. My husband and I are avid birdwatchers and could have identified them for you.

    1. There is sooo much out there that it is hard to take it all in. We are going to have to talk. Bird watching is something I think I could get into!

  7. Love this list! The experience with the birds sounds awesome. I love wildlife, but I have noticed our birds have kind of disappeared. We were talking with our neighbor about what that might mean.

    1. Thanks Laura. It is fun to do! And if your birds are missing and not just for the season-you best check this out. It could be the sign of a bad environment.

  13. Congrats on adding those follow buttons...I finally had to hire someone to add mine. They're a great addition.

    PS...I think our favorite ccc's are Jacques Torres' from the New York Times...the ones with pastry flour and bread flour. They are scrumptious!!!
