Fresh Fridays, March 5

Did you blink and February was gone too? January creeps on by, then February rushes away and now we’re almost through our first week of March.


March is one busy month; there’s St. Patrick’s day, Parent Teacher conferences, Spring Break, Lent, and of course all of the March Madness.

National Food Days

Today is National Cheese Doodle day — I kid you not! LOL! I do not have any recipes with cheese doodles, or what we call cheese puffs. Who makes up these national food days?

March 6 is National Oreo Day — this is one I can get behind! You might enjoy this oh so popular Mile High Mud Pie or Easter Bunny Dirt Cake. Have you tried the new Gluten Free Oreos?

And to round out your weekend, March 7 is National Cereal Day — try my soft & chewy granola or this make ahead and eat all week Swiss Muesli!


Drum roll please…..for the first time ever; I am posting a fish recipe. I am a bit embarrassed; read more about what took me so long when you click on the post link below.

I hope you will plan on making this healthy, 3 ingredient, restaurant qualitybut takes less than 15 minutes to makeRaspberry Glazed Salmon!

Drool worthy! <<< This statement from a not super fish loving girl!

Laughter IS the BEST medicine

I forgot where I saw this but it made me laugh — out loud, maybe even guffawed; I might have snorted, hope it at least brings a smile to your face.

guffaw — noun: a loud or boisterous burst of laughter

funny quote: I don't have ducks. or a row. I have squirrels and they are everywhere!

Let’s talk sheet pans, do you love yours? I have gone through a lot of pans over the years and these USA Pans are by far my favorite!! I am slowly building up my collection of all sorts of these pans, check them all out.

I have the quarter sheet pan, jelly roll and the half sheet pan and I love and use them all the time. This is not sponsored by USA Pan Co. I just love them!

That’s about it for the week, sure hope you have a beautiful, safe, soul-resting weekend!
