These Coconut Macaroons from Once Upon A Chef are amazing! I shipped a few to my Mom for Mother’s Day and she loved them!

Here are more of my favorite tested recipes from the week!

I’ve jumped into bread. I was intimidated by it for a while but with the quarantine, I decided to started with easier recipes and work my way up. Bread flour is scarce so I’ve turned to recipes with all-purpose flour.

This Oatmeal Batter Bread by Linda Larsen, The Spruce Eats, has a nice sweet taste from the added honey. It’s an easy recipe to mix up and pop into a loaf pan.

I love Le Creuset cookware (not sponsored) and am always looking for a chance to use it. This Easy Dutch Oven No Knead Bread from Joy Food Sunshine, was much easier to make than I thought. It requires 18-24 hours to rise so plan accordingly and keep the dough in a nice warm place. Mine did not rise as much as I had liked so next time, I’ll find a warmer place and allow it to rise 24 hours.

Favorite Finds:

I spend a lot of time online researching recipes. Here are a few that caught my eye.

I haven’t made a Hummingbird Cake in a long time. Yep, on the list now!

Are Blueberry Muffin Cookies considered breakfast?

Highlands Bourbon-Glazed Pound Cake from Southern Pastry Chef, Dolester Miles. I am all over this…and bourbon!

This Mile-High Lime Meringue Tart is such a beautiful dessert.

I may throw this Lemon Cheesy Flatbread Pizza with Hot Honey by How Sweet Eats on my Big Green Egg!

Frothy Whipped Coffee White Russian by Half Baked Harvest is definitely my end-of-week cocktail! I’ll let you know how it wonderful I assume it will be.

Mix things up this weekend with a Chocolate and Cheese Board from Damn Delicious?

    The coconut macaroons are scrumptious! I haven’t had the pleasure of tasting the others yet.
