Friday Recipe Round-Up

Yay Friday!  This week has been a doozy for me.  A ton of projects were suddenly due all at once and I have been working to get all of those done.  On top of that, this weekend is my sister’s bachelorette party so I have been getting things ready for that!  Seriously, how is it possible that my baby sister is getting married?!  We were literally just playing with our Barbies and Polly Pockets.  Like yesterday.  For reals.

Anyway!  Because it’s been a crazy week in the Dawson house I don’t have a new recipe for you today BUT do not start sobbing yet!  I do have a round-up of all the delicious recipes I have found on all the blogs I follow.

I will have new stuff for you next week, but in the meantime enjoy these recipes as well as all the ones I have over on my recipe page!

Key Lime Pistachio Truffles from The Clean DishKey Lime Pistachio Truffles

I am really having a thing with key lime lately.  It is the perfect summer treat and there are so many ways to make it.  These truffles look amazing!

Grain-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread from Predominantly PaleoGrain-Free Chocolate Zucchini Bread

About this time of year, we’re pretty much drowning in zucchini.  It’s delicious but the same old zucchini bread can get a little tiresome.  I love this chocolate twist!

Avocado Lemon Basil Pesto from Kathy HesterAvocado Lemon Pesto

Along with key lime, I have been having a love affair with pesto this summer.   My fridge has not been without a jar of the stuff for more than 2 hours.  The lemon basil in this is amazing, but if you can’t find any regular basil still makes a tasty pesto!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Magic Shell from The Lemon BowlChocolate PB Magic Shell 

Be prepared for me to cover everything in this delectable concoction.  If you’re smart you should do the same.

Have an awesome weekend and make one of these glorious dishes!

Friday Link Love

I am in the middle of testing a few different recipes right now, so sadly I don’t have a new one for you today.  Don’t worry though, the rest of the blogging world has some delicious things for you to try!  Here are a few of the recipes and blogs that are catching my attention.

Eating Bird Food

Brussels sprouts often get a bad rap, but they are delicious and tasty especially when you prepare them like this!



Kath Eats Real Food

This is a really unique way to use grits and sushi.  I love grits and this just looks tasty!



The Lean Green Bean

Need to feed a lot of people for breakfast?  Then this is your dish!  With family visiting for the holidays this is a great meal to keep on hand.




I love pumpkin and eggnog and brownies.  Good thing PaleOMG made this brownie eggnog pumpkin pie!



Purely Twins

I really like that one of the layers in this cake is made with kabocha squash.  The oreo cake is pretty good too….



The Gracious Pantry 

And finally if you are looking for a quick and healthy side for your Thanksgiving table, check out these sweet potato biscuits!




These are just a few samples of all the great, delicious, and healthy recipes that are out there.  I can’t wait to try all of these and hopefully these give you some ideas on what to serve for the upcoming holiday.  Have a great weekend and I will see you back on Monday!
