Friday Favorites: My Favorite Recipes and Why I Blog

I have been updating this blog off and on for the nearly 2 years. I do not update it regularly because, well, life happens. I am happy for the support of those who's been here from the beginning. Many has come and gone, some have stayed put. THANK YOU!!!!

My sole purpose of blogging: to get folk inspired to get in the kitchen. Even if you don't try my recipe, I'd hope I've inspired you to try something similar, put your own spin on it or just get those pots and pans moving period.

I believe in inspiring others. Maybe to a fault. I share recipes from everyone from my favorite TV Chefs, the "top" bloggers, the bloggers not a lot knows about, heck everyone. I don't discriminate and refuse to fit into any mold. I love and believe in so many! If it gets more folks cooking, I am happy!

I have a bit more time to blog these days thanks to my favorite organization site It has everything from a journal, a to-do list, and a meal plan list! I LOVE it! My house is more organized, and I plan each day with it. And I found I actually have free time where I can do nothing guilt-free. So that's one of the reasons I can be here more often. ;)

The main purpose of this post is to show you some of my favorite recipes you all may have never seen since many of you weren't around those first few months! These also happen to be my very favorites, so I hope you enjoy or try something similar/better/totally no where like it. Have a lovely weekend all!
