Here’s another fun edition of Stuff I’ve Gotta Share and You’ve Gotta See! >>

Slow Cooker Creamy Ham and Potato Chowder 600

Check out the recipe I shared on Parade Magazine this week > SLOW COOKER CREAMY HAM & POTATO CHOWDER.  It was super easy to make, and it was a big hit with my family.  The recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens Skinny Slow Cooker Cookbook– which I totally recommend you adding to your collection if you’re a fan of using your slow cooker!

meyer lemon crepe cake

Here’s what’s happening on my other blog – Culinary Covers – this week >> Lindsey from the blog Cafe Johnsonia made us a Meyer Lemon Crepe Cake!  It’s originally from a Martha Stewart Living cover.  Come read the post and see what Lindsey thought of Martha’s recipe!

Sad and Useless Humor

This is an extremely silly website called, Sad and Useless Humor.  A lot of the posts are fun to look at… I found “Faces of Olympic Figure Skating,” “Honest Valentine’s Day Cards,” “How to Pass Time on the Train…”  It’s all very silly, but fun to check out.

walking dead

I’m so glad that The Walking Dead has returned!  I won’t reveal any spoilers just in case you’re not up to date on the episodes… but for those of you who are watching, let me just say >> Judith- I knew it!  And that little girl in the last episode???  She’s kind of whacked.  Who is ready for something HAPPY to happen to these people now?  Surely they can build an extra-strong fort and have a happy little town, right?  I’m excited to see where they take things this second half of the season.

Fave Blogs Feb19

Here are three food blogs that I follow because I love them!  You should be following too >

  • BAKER BY NATURE > Ashley blogs from New York (Brooklyn).  She shares on her blog >> anything dipped in chocolate, wrapped in bacon, brushed with butter, topped with an egg, or made with love is a friend of mine.  I’ve been following Ashley for a while now, and I love her recipes!  Her latest post: Chocolate Hazelnut Banana Bread Donuts and a Donut Pan Giveaway.
  • INSIDE BRUCREW LIFE > Jocelyn blogs from Indiana and she is wicked talented.  She shares a lot of baking goodies on her blog and throws in the occasional dinner too.  Major side note- I’m totally envious of her gorgeous curly hair!  Jocelyn’s latest post:  Beef Taco Quinoa Salad Bowls.
  • GIMME SOME OVEN > Ali blogs from Missouri (Kansas City).  She’s single!  No, seriously… I’ve spent a lot of time hanging out with Ali, and she’s totally a beautiful person inside and out.  Her blog is truly one of my favorites- every single time I see a new post, I know it’s something I’m going to love.  Ali shares everything on her blog.  Her latest post:  Condensed Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup.

Hungry Shirt

I need to buy this t-shirt and wear it around my husband… especially after I do a juice cleanse 🙂  Shirt is available here on Etsy > I’M SORRY FOR WHAT I SAID WHEN I WAS HUNGRY.
