{oh hey friday | 5 stellar recipes}

My Thursday night consisted of making nectarine jam with my hubby.
This probably sounds very farm-ish, so I'm sure no one is surprised.
But, you should be.
This is abnormal on many levels.
1. I've never in my life made jam.
2. My farmer can be found in the kitchen only while making coffee in the morning.
3. It was his idea to make the jam, and he purchased the jars before he came home. AND he started peeling and slicing them while I was busily working out... hence my super rad high pony.

Regardless of the atypical occurrence, I quite liked it.
We munched on popcorn while stirring jam over the stove and talking/laughing over God know what.
So romantic. :)

Anyways, it got me thinking about some great recipes I've posted on this here blog, that I am going to re-share with y'all!

But first... some biz-nass.
If you'd like to join in on the link-up, we'd LOVE to have you!
We had 180 people link up last week, which is totally stellar.
I absolutely adore all of your blogs and reading through your posts...
even if I don't find time to comment!

After you read my awesome recipes, link up your blog post on five things.
Don't forget to add the button from below to your post, or link back to my blog.

Ok. Moving on.
1. | Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies
These bad boys are a bit time consuming.
But they are honestly the most delicious little pie in the world.
My platter of pies was gone within minutes.
This oncoming fall-ish weather makes me want to make these.
So should you.

I made these for my lovely co-host, Karli.
She was having a big ol' bash.
And what is a big ol' bash without some seriously delicious cupcakes with some cookie dough in the center of them?
Nothing. The answer is nothing.
If you have a party, or get together coming up, or you're going to be alone at home over the weekend... whatever. 
You need to make these.

Clearly I've got some serious sugar addiction problems.
When you want a cookie, and you don't want to wait the hour it takes to go through the whole process..
well, you probably shouldn't have a cookie.
BUT, in my case, I find a way to make cookies faster.
These are super fast, and chewy, and delicious.
I bet you could use other types of cereal too if you're in a pinch.

Before we got Beckam allergy tested, we thought he may have some gluten intolerance.
I started playing around with some gluten free ideas, and ended up making these yummy cookies.
They are not too shabby.
The coconut flour gives them a different texture.
But it certainly didn't stop me from eating 83% of them.
Turns out Beckam is highly allergic to egg, which these DO have in them though, 
so he can't eat them anyway.

A little change of pace from the sweet treats above,
BUT I had to post this one.
Because it is my all time most read post on my blog.
Only because of Pinterest...
if you will notice, it is definitely not because of the picture!!
I am completely boggled every single time I see how many views a week this post gets.
Can we all just agree that this doesn't even look that appetizing?
I mean... it was. 
And is a really great recipe!
But come on.
Let's all pin one of the other images above instead, so some good looking pics can be correlated to my blog at least. Ok?
Pin, pin away!
Have a fabulous weekend friends.
Try out one of these recipes too!
I promise you won't be disappointed.
