Here’s a quick run-down of some things I’m thinking about this month!
My house has lots of snow, so last week I escaped for a quick get-away to Palm Springs, where I enjoyed the sunshine, learned about desert plants at Moorten Botanical Gardens, toured the gardens at Sunnylands, sat by the pool, shopped, and definitely got a hankering to live somewhere warm during the winter! (You can follow me on Instagram if you want to see photos from trips like this.) I want to visit Palm Springs again, so if anyone has recommendations of places to eat or visit there, please share in the comments.
Thanks to my friend Stephanie from CopyKat Recipes for a tip for people who want nutritional information for a recipe online. Besides entering the recipe into Calorie Count (which I have recommended for years), Stephanie clued me in that you can also get nutritional info by joining Yummly and then using the orange Yum button to save the recipe to Yummly. When you look at that recipe in your Yummly Recipe Box you’ll see the nutritional information. (That Yum button appears at the top of every post on Kalyn’s Kitchen and on many other recipe sites.)
After seeing all the fun recipes videos on Facebook, I got my creative genius brother Rand to start making some for me. Above is my first video, and here’s my You Tube Channel where all the videos will be stored; thanks Rand! We’re figuring this out as we go, so let me know if there are issues. (And if you follow me on Facebook, all the videos will be shared there.)
Are you a fan of the new Crock-Pot Casserole Crock Slow Cooker, a slow cooker that’s made in the shape of a casserole dish? If you are you might want to check out Casserole Crock Saturdays. We’re sharing a casserole crock recipe (or a casserole that could be made in the casserole crock) every Saturday on Slow Cooker from Scratch. I love my casserole crock!
And if you’re tired of the high prices on Cauliflower, you might agree with Mellissa from I Breathe I’m Hungry, who wrote An Open Letter to Cauliflower.
And that about covers it for what I’ve been thinking about for the last month. Let me know in the comments if any of these give you something new to think about! You can use the label Things I’m Thinking About if you’d like to see more posts like this one.
