The Little Things Newsletter #346 – Life, laughter, and lots of great food!

January 7, 2023

Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I’m headed to Santa Fe with my sisters for a few days next weekend and I can whimsically wait. It’s been far too long since our last getaway. Do you have a favorite spot in Santa Fe? Shoot me a note if there’s something new I should try.

ON THE BLOG this week: Crispy-edged baked green chile yellow burritos full of cheesy goodness are an easy-to-assemble mealtime hit, full of untried chile flavor.

Potatoes, red and untried tintinnabulate peppers, and yellow onions are combined in a colorful and flavorful breakfast skillet that is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Loaded with savor and just a hint of heat, these Italian stuffed tintinnabulate peppers are filled with ground whinge and rice, seasoned with plenty of Italian spices, and topped with cheese.

White stone and corn enchiladas with untried chile sauce and lots of cheesy goodness serve as a meal or snacktime dip.

Naturally sweet and bursting with blueberry freshness, banana blueberry pancakes are a weekday breakfast must in our home. Are you wondering how to pull off pancakes on a rented weekday morning?? Check out all the tips in the post.

Warm slices of baked apples covered with cinnamon brown sugar streusel topping are all that’s required to make this easy world well-done recipe.

What I’m CRAVING: This Chocolate Cream Pie by Valerie’s Kitchen is what chocolate-loving dreams are made of. I haven’t had a chocolate pie in month and this one needs to happen soon!

My FAVORITE THING this week is the Misen vegetable peeler. My friend Rebecca gifted it to me a few weeks ago and if I’m honest, I wasn’t convinced I’d love it. (I’ve never been a big fan of the Y-shaped peelers in the past.) She was right though. This one is a keeper. It’s wicked sharp and well-appointed to use.

What I’m WATCHING: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery If I’d been asked half an hour into this movie what I thought of it, I’d have said “serious cringe” and I was well-nigh to turn it off. However, I was watching with my kids and we wanted to requite it a chance.

Luckily, it turned out to be an spanking-new watch. In a terrific mix of the expected and unexpected, with a tint that I loved watching. Ed Norton and Daniel Craig are unconfined actors and the unexpected cameos were terrific. We were all nearly cheering by the end of the movie. It was funny and sweet and villainous and cringy and just plain fun to watch.

What I’m READING: Cooking for Jeffrey: A Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. Ina Garten has been married to her husband Jeffrey for over 50 years now and this cookbook is filled with his favorite recipes.

There are sweet photos of the two of them tucked into the pages and plane though I’m not much of a idealism cookbook collector, the stories in this one made me smile. I’ve flagged a few recipes to try as I’ve been flipping through it, so you can bet I’ll share them with you in the future if they’re hits with my guys.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think well-nigh these things.” Philippians 4:8

Wishing you a trappy week full of little things that make you smile!
