    Friday Show and Tell

    Friday Show and Tell time!

    peanut butter and chocolate recipes

    On Babble this week I pulled together some truly scrumptious recipe roundups:

    Have you seen the new Mumford & Sons video for Hopeless Wanderer? If you haven’t, make sure you do! Click here to see the video. I promise you’ll like it, whether you’re a fan of the band or not. And, if you’re not a Mumford fan, you will be after the video.

    That’s all I’ve got this week! Oh, well, unless you were wondering who the Maynards gave votes to for SYTYCD…I had to throw a few votes Amy’s way, but, in the end, we threw our support behind Jasmine. Honestly, though, I’ll be happy for either girl to win. When it comes to the guys – Fik-Shun all the way! That gagnam style solo? Genius!

    Everyone’s invited to participate in Show and Tell! Share anything you would like!

    Friday Show and Tell!

    How is it Friday already?!

    I have some fun things to share with you today for Show and Tell!

    so you think you can dance finals vote | thisweekfordinner.com

    In TV: I have no idea who I am going to vote for on SYTYCD! I know, stressful stuff. Also, Nate and I finally got caught up on Dexter.

    In Music: I am getting back in the groove of adding songs to Kitchen Tunage. Vacation is over, time to get serious about my kitchen playlist!

    On Babble: I put together a post with 7 yummy snacks your kids won’t trade away. (There are some good ones in there!)

    Make a comment, get a vaccine for a child in need: My friend Kristen wrote a post on her blog as part of Blogust in support of Shot at Life. The post is beautifully written and if you make a comment, a child in need will get a vaccine! Hop to it!

    Lastly, I made Magic Peanut Butter Middles last night. These cookies require a little love and effort, but they are totally worth it. Definitely a good recipe to revisit!

    I’ll be here on Sunday with my weekly menu, but I still wish you all a happy holiday weekend! And, as usual, please share with us – anything you want! It’s Show and Tell!

    Friday Show & Tell!

    It’s Friday? And Friday is almost over already? This week has flown by and I’m still not caught up from vacation. I also cannot believe my kids start school next week and that Anna will be in Kindergarten. Where does the time go?

    Time for show and tell this week!

    I made my friend Kristen’s Summer Harvest Salad last night and it was awesome. So simple to prepare and sooooo tasty. It’s a salad made up of ingredients that you normally eat first in other salads because they are so good!

    I finally voted on SYTYCD this week and I switched from Team Hank to Team Walt.

    20 heavenly hazelnut recipes

    On Babble, I assembled a collection of 20 truly heavenly hazelnut recipes (ranging from sweet to savory), 10 Mexican breakfast ideas you can use this weekend, and I pulled together a piece about how to choose healthy protein bars (reading food labels can be such a bear!).

    As always, please share anything you like! A link to a blog post of your own, something you found on Pinterest, who you voted for on SYTYCD, anything at all!

    Happy Weekend!

    Friday Show and Tell

    Right before we moved from the Bay Area, I was laid off from one job and then quit another job for the move. Suddenly I had a lot more time on my hands. But, because I’m crazy, I quickly found ways to fill that time. I started writing for Babble and then started two other blogs, Kitchen Tunage (my music blog) and The Spoiler Alert (my TV blog, where I also have other great contributors writing). It’s like I like being a crazy person.

    The other day Nate was like, “You should totally be sharing the Kitchen Tunage music on your food blog.” And I was like, “Isn’t that why I started the music blog?” And he was like, “Yeah, but it’s your kitchen playlist, it all goes together!” And I was like, “Hmmmmmm….maybe….”

    And then I realized, I also kinda wanna share my Babble stuff with you, too. Plus, I’m always up for talking about TV.

    So, I am instituting Friday Show and Tell!

    Here’s how Show & Tell will work. I’ll share my “stuff” from the week. But I want you to show and tell, too! Share posts from your own blogs, share something you found online that week, share an interesting news story. Whatever you want!

    Have you heard Lorde? She’s only SIXTEEN. Unreal. She’s huge in New Zealand. She should be huge here. Let’s make it happen.

    Also, I hope you’re feeling Safe and Sound, because we are definitely feeling it around the Maynard house. Good stuff.

    Marie is loving Orange is the New Black. I might have to jump on the bandwagon! I am loving Dr. Vogel. A LOT. But I I am not loving that Jasmine M went home. Such a bummer! (Also, old news, but if you’re into Mad Men or Game of Thrones, I had to write about those season finales, here and here.)

    I made some beautiful bread in honor of The Hunger Games, I shared some ways to improve your cooking experience while camping, and compiled my MOST FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipes all in one place.

    Your turn! Show and tell!
