Weekly Wanderings

in blogs, links ahoy, weekly wanderings

Fresh Gnocchi with Mushroom Cream Sauce – Must make homemade gnocchi.  Must make a mushroom cream sauce.  Must make this recipe as soon as possible. 

Mini Olive Oil Cakes with Lemon Glaze – Somehow I think that might life would be more complete if I owned mini bundt pans and made individually-sized desserts to serve at the dinner parties I never actually throw.

Pasta with Marscapone, Chicken, Sundried Tomatoes, and Spinach – I totally blame The Pioneer Woman for any weight I gain related to all the pasta recipes she shared this week.

Polka Dot Cake – How adorable is this?? And super simple too.  I need an occasion to make this.

Everything Else:

How to avoid the “My homemade food must be fat-free, sugar-free, salt-free, and 100% whole grain!” mindset – Kristen at The Frugal Girl has a way of putting exactly the right words in her post.  If you’ve ever been terrified of how much butter/sugar/salt/etc is going into your homemade foods, read this post.
The Librarians Antidefamation League versus Nabisco – I usually don’t like the Annoyed Librarian, but this post was laugh-out-loud funny.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and if you haven’t read it, you will too.
In Defense of Chick Lit – Some of you may have read the slightly obnoxious comments (brand new) Pulitzer Prize winner novelist Jennifer Egan made in the New York Times about chick lit.  I’ll let you read both the original article and the subsequent response post on The Frisky and let you make your own judgment on whether or not Egan should have said what she said.  But I agree wholeheartedly with Jamie Beckman’s last line “Now’s the time to advocate for your fellow writers, not step on other women as you make your way to the podium”.
Brian Cooley: Libraries Are for the Very Old or the Very Unemployed – Be ready to be offended and then read The Krafty Librarian’s excellent response to these ridiculous claims.  
Don’t forget you can check out everything else I’m liking by following me on Pinterest!

Oh gosh, the gnocchi with mushroom cream sauce looks so good! I think that might bump something else from my menu plan for this week…yum!
