Happy Friday! It’s time to checkIN & checkOUT and get a look at some of my favorite recipes, cocktails, products, projects & new finds from around the web. My kids are finishing up their April vacation week and it’s finally getting to be a little nicer out…we’ve even cooked on the grill this week – my favorite! So here’s what I’m excited about this week…
checkOUT: Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Do you guys know about Yummly.com? It’s like Pinterest, but just for recipes. If you enjoy cooking or even just checking out recipes that you might get around to cooking someday, then you should definitely sign up! It’s so easy to use…you just click a recipe to “Yum” it (like it) and it adds it to your page. You can choose to categorize or not, and even that’s easy to do with just one more simple click. You can browse the recipes on the website, the mobile app, and you’ll find a Yum button on many blog sites too! Anyway, this Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole from Jo Cooks popped up on Yummly home page today and it looks soooo good. I’m trying it soon!
checkOUT: Lemon Sugar Cookies
Another recipe that popped up on my Yummly feed is this one for Lemon Sugar Cookies from Melissa at Modern Honey. I love any kind of lemon desserts and I’m always on the look out for good sugar cookie recipes. My oldest son does not like chocolate…have you ever heard of such a thing?!? So I like to find desserts that he’ll enjoy and I think we’d both love this one! And how gorgeous is this photo?
checkOUT: Blueberry Moscow Mules
Next up is a cocktail that I’m dying to try out…a perfect spring version of a Moscow Mule. This Blueberry Moscow Mule from Carly at Lipstick & Crayons combines the classic mule flavors – ginger beer, lime and vodka – with a blueberry simple syrup. Sign me up, please!
Head on over to North Detail to check out the fun kitchen and home decor that Ariel has to offer. These are perfect hostess or housewarming gifts, great for mother’s day or just to treat yourself! I’m a big fan of the kitchen dance party tea towels. From the site: “The 2016 SPRING Collection is a line of handmade in the USA, 100% cotton home decor and kitchenware. Designed with unique hand lettering, each piece is made to order with fabric hand picked because of its beauty and durability.”
checkOUT: The Wet Brush
I’m not sure if we’re behind on the times on this? (Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if we were, lol!) But my daughter came home from a sleepover a few weeks ago and said she wanted a Wet Brush because it was so nice and didn’t hurt. My girl has major snarls and hates brushing her hair so I didn’t even hesitate to get her one of these. And it is every bit as good as she said! I even use it on my super thick, curly hair and it glides right through. If you have hair brushing struggles going on in your house, get yourself one of these asap!
I hope you enjoyed this week’s list, and please come back and checkIN next week to checkOUT some more great finds!
And if you try any of these recipes, products or projects, please take a photo and share with me on Instagram with #checkincheckoutfriday!
