Foodie Friday 12/6/12

 Welcome to the December 6th Foodie Friday.
Last week I posted about my kitchen renovation. I found an inspiration photo on Houzz (see above), and I met with Mike, my contractor, to see if our kitchen ceiling could be raised.
Yes, it can!

 This week the ceiling was ripped out.

I'm keeping my thoughts on the inspiration picture.
This week Foodie Friday is spotlighting a few recipes.
Are you ready to take the tour? Let's start at Yvonne's house in Pennsylvania:

Stone Gable's  Holiday Granola Bars.

Hyacinths for the Soul's Mini Apple {ies with lattice crust.

Food Done Light's Braised Fennel.

A Spoonful of Thyme's Chicken and Cheddar-stuffed Poblanos.

Vignette Design's Thanksgiving feast--lots of recipes.
Semi-homemade Mom's Root Beer Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

Whole New Mom's Coconut Delights (sugar-free/grain-free/vegan)

Velvet Moon's Royal Icing Snowflake Tutorial
 Susannah's Kitchen Gingerbread Cookies--Lazy Baker Recipe

Lemon and Lime Christmas Stollen
 Lemon and Lime's Christmas Chutney and Oatcakes
The Freshman Cook's Candy Cane Divinity.
 Sense and Simplicity's Beet-Cheese-Walnut Salad.

Girl Chef's Bacon Hash

What's Cooking in the Burb's  Crockpot French Onion Soup.
 Small Footprint Family's Crockpot Chicken Stock.

Whole Green Love's Nourishing Bone Broth.


Half Baked Harvest's Homemade Sesame Crackers.

During the holidays, I'll be
showcasing a sampler of Foodie Friday recipes.

  22. This week I have shared my gorgeous cold and flu busting coconut and orange smoothie. It will get rid of your cold in no time!

    Thank you for hosting

  23. Wow, look at your ceiling. Aren't you having a heart attack with everything torn up? I would be. But think of how fabulous it's going to look when you're finished!

    Great food round-up. I live in BBQ country part of the year, so those pulled pork sandwiches sound delish.

    I brought a winter salad with roasted squash & potatoes over arugula, topped with feta and pomegranate seeds. Very festive look with the bright red seeds.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend and you get to go out to eat with your kitchen torn up...

  24. Thanks for featuring my Sesame Crackers! They are perfect holiday cracker! Thanks for hosting a great party every week!

  25. Michael having your roof torn out sounds a little frightening. Good luck on your renovation. And thank you for an always scrumptious party.

  26. With a kitchen undergoing redo, you may not be cooking too much for a while, but you will have many tantalizing recipes to consider for when it's done.

  27. Thanks so much for featuring my Stollen Recipe and my Chutney....
