Sunday Inspirations

I know I have linked to these inspirational sayings for each day before, but I am linking again to Clyde The Mad Tatters blog simply because I really appreciate him posting these. Some times, you just need a good reminder. One of the reasons I also love the Monday Musings from Romi of the blog Rosemary Go Round.

This Book Strap Tutorial is very nifty!

Recipes I’d like to try:

I have the burden or blessing in my family of being the only daughter who really doesn’t have much natural skill in the kitchen. I say burden, because I am the odd man out here . . . I got the short end of the stick on that one. However, it is also a blessing, because I can learn from them. My sister, Rhoni, is a fanatic when it comes to pastas and she does them super well. She recently posted her Spaghetti Sauce and her Chicken Parmesan! I definitely recommend both of them!

Emily from A Joyful Abode recently linked to her recipe for Roast and I have to try it, is sounds very flavorful, which I find difficult to achieve with a lot of recipes.

These Scalloped Apples sound super delicious, especially with some Vanilla Ice Cream.

All of the Gluten-Free cookies I have tried have a crumbly nature to them, which I know some people don’t mind or even prefer, but I am not one of them. However, these Chocolate Chip Cookies appear to have more of a normal texture, which definitely makes me want to try them!

Not only does this Chicken Cordon Bleu sound super yummy, but it also would be made easily into Gluten-Free. This is going on my list of things to make!

The older I get, the more I like pickled food, so these Pickled Vietnamese Diakons and Carrots sound interesting. These seem like a nice side dish to something that is a little spicy. A Mexican restaurant in Ithaca served something similar with their food and both my husband and I loved them, so I will have to try this recipe.

On the same thought process, these Pickled Onions sound good too!

I have never had Kimchi but every time I see a recipe for it, it sounds so interesting. I think I will have to give in and try making some.


  1. Thanks! I love chicken cordon bleu but I haven't made it in ages!! That apple dish sounds great!

  2. I love kimchi, but have never made it...
