Friday Frenzy June 9th

Welcome to all my crafty and foodie friends, I’m glad you’re here! I’m posting this a little late, life kind of rolled up and right over me this week. Nothing bad, just busier than I thought I would be. I wrote a MASSIVE post for my small hometown, if you’re thinking of traveling TO Alaska, read it. It also conveniently links to rest of my Alaska posts with all kinds of helpful information for the Alaska bound traveler.

What’s new this week? LOTS of surprise projects I can’t even tell you about yet. One is with my good friend Heather at Real: The Kitchen and Beyond. And the OTHER is also with Heather AND includes my another amazing friend, Laura of the Family Spice. I’ll be rolling out details of these project as they become available!

Here’s what’s new this week:

Hi everyone! Rachel from Tramplingrose with this week’s Friday Frenzy picks. I dunno how it is where you are, but we’ve been stuck in a heat wave for what seems like forever. Not that I’m complaining, mind you – After all, we had winter for like 2 years, so the warmer weather is nice. However, I don’t want to heat up the house if I can avoid it. So I compiled a list a “beat the heat” foods.

Heatwave aside, I would be willing to fire up the stove for some Parmesan Chicken from Poinsettia Drive. Crispy, cheesy chicken topped with crisp greens and a lemon vinaigrette.

To go along with it, how about a cool pasta salad, like this one from Tumbleweed Contessa?

And, the recipe notes, the longer you can let it sit before serving, the better it’ll taste. Definitely make ahead food!

Finally, you can’t not have a cool, creamy dessert when it’s so hot – though I’m the kind of person who can/will eat ice cream all year long. The Saucy Southerner shared these Kahlua Fudgesicles, and they look amazing! Just a bit boozy for an adult treat, I’m thinking I’m going to be investing in some popsicle molds so I can make these ASAP!
