The Little Things Newsletter #368 – Live, Laugh and Lots of Great Food!

Welcome to the weekend my friends! It’s been a really delicious week spent here in the kitchen. Lots of great new recipes await you this summer.

Oh! If you’re a rhubarb lover, be sure to sign up for emails here so you don’t miss any of the new recipes.

ON THE BLOGS this week: This chicken and bacon fried rice has firmly established itself in our house as the best “unplanned and incredibly delicious” meal ever.

Sweet and slightly tart fresh blueberries are lightly coated in dark chocolate for an irresistibly sweet snack that doubles as a quick and easy dessert.

Creamy, flavorful pasta with peppers and sausage is a 20-minute meal everyone loves. My family will happily eat this pasta any night of the week.

Anyone who has ever grown their own zucchini knows that before summer is out, people will be looking for new uses. This guide details all the steps to make zucchini noodles.

If you know how to cook zucchini pasta, you can have these Garlic Parmesan Zucchini Pasta ready to eat in minutes—seasoned to perfection with just butter and herbs, or topped with your favorite pasta sauce.

The delicious sizzling of colorful veggies on a hot grill provides the amazing flavor and desired char in no time. Learning how to grill all kinds of vegetables will make summertime dinner a breeze.

For this strawberry shortcake, fresh strawberries are mixed with sugar and cinnamon before being layered under a sweet cookie crust. If you’re a fan of the classic strawberry shortcake, you’ll love this berry-filled dessert.

Smooth vanilla ice cream meets the vibrant flavor of sweet, ripe cherries in every bite of this black cherry ice cream. And the second spoon? Irresistible.

Sweet, tart cherry filling and a crunchy almond topping combine for an easy and delicious summer dessert. Whether topped with a scoop of ice cream or served alone, this is a treat that will leave you wanting more.

You only need three ingredients to make these peanut butter milkshakes. They are every peanut butter lover’s dream come true.

What I long for: This sweet and gooey Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork) caught my eye this week and I printed out the recipe to try it soon. Sounds fantastic!

What I’m looking at: Sweet Home Alabama. My friend Lynne was here this week and had never seen the film. (How is that possible?!) It’s one of my all-time favorite movies and I was very happy to let her know we’d check it out as soon as possible. Luckily for our friendship, she loved it.

What I hear: Pour It Out Into The Night by The Revivalists. This whole album! I’ve been listening to it every day this week and I like it more each time. It’s excellent.
