Best of the Week

August 8 - 14th, 2011

There were literally tons of amazing recipes going around this week, it was quite a challenge to knock my list down to only seven.  I managed though, so here are this week's winners.

Chocolate Covered S'mores Pops by Christi at Love From The Oven. love me some s'mores, and food on a stick. And most of all I love anything covered in chocolate.  So s'mores + stick + chocolate = ♥♥♥♥♥  I don't think it's possible to go wrong here.

Baked polenta lasagna?  No messy pan to clean?  Only make what you need instead of a huge vat?  I'm in!  This looks incredibly delicious, simple and healthy. Check out Heidi over at Food Doodles for this and tons more awesome nummies. 

This to me is one of those perfect desserts. Sweet, but healthy, but so awesome so you think it's not healthy.  I love lightly caramelized bananas on Greek yogurt with honey and pecans, so I can only imagine how amazing this is.  This recipe can be found over at the gorgeousness that is The Pastry Affair.


Balsamic Strawberry Pizza with Chicken, Sweet Onions and Applewood Smoked Bacon. Let's just think about that for a minute.  We all know balsamic strawberries are more or less food of the gods...and bacon. I love chicken and onions.  This pizza sounds like a foodgasm waiting to happen.  Sign me up baby momma needs a good time.  You can find the recipe for this awesomeness over at Cafe Sucre Farine.

Hello gorgeous.  I don't even care what's in you.  You are made in homage to a Mocha Coconut Frappuccino and I need you in my life since Starbucks can't be.  I'm going to make you and although you probably won't look this pretty I'll just turn the lights off cause we all look the same in the dark don't we.  Jessica over at How Sweet Eats made these and I highly recommend you check her out, she's hilarious.


These right here are heaven on a plate. Coconut and pancakes? Best make me some breakfast. This is a vegan recipe but don't let that scare you!  99% of the time vegan food is tastier and about a million times healthier. Vegan recipes aren't just for tree hugging Peta activists, I use them all the time.  Don't believe me?  Check out This Can't Be Vegan to get your mind changed.  If it isn't, just switch out the hippy shit for butter.  Cow hater.


Last, but definitely not least, it is this gorgeous cake that comes from none other than the culinary goddess herself, Julia Child.  If Julia made it you know it's good. There is no need to question and her recipes never need improving.  But the variation here that I think makes it is the use of dulce de leche. Check out Sweetest Kitchen for this Queen of Sheba cake. Strange name huh? Wonder if that's what Julia's husband called her...
