Fun Finds cooking

Friday’s Fun Finds Vol. 21


December 4, 2020



In the spirit of the week of Giving Tuesday – I would love to encourage everyone to donate to their local food bank if you can. They always need help but this year it is extra vital. Also since I am on the food theme if you are a foodie make sure to help support local restaurants.

insta cooking classes

My kids and I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything Top Chef and this includes Tom Colicchio! So I have been watching his insta cooking classes to raise money for restaurants … AND I shared that in my insta story and he put my story in his story !!!!!!!! WHAAAAAAAT!!!!

Anyway, they are fun to watch if you want to upgrade your at-home cooking repertoire.

to shop

Have you checked out Thrive Market? Every time I get inspired to change my eating habits and cook out of my pretty cookbook Eat Clean Play Dirty I put items in my Thrive cart … one of these days I will put down my chips and actually check out!!!

gifts to give

Alright I know I shamelessly plug my fabulous cheese farming friends a lot … but when you love something you share!!!! Are you looking for the ultimate gift for the foodie in your life … how about a Jasper Hill Cheese of the Month club? Do you need my address? lol!

to cook up

There is one “recipe” that is most requested in the Sowles household these days and it is pretty yummy and pretty easy!

I get a combo of hot and sweet italian sausage, cook it with lots of garlic – add some sort of marinara sauce and after it simmers a bit throw in some heavy cream. Add some cooked penne, pour a glass of wine and call it a night!

it’s national cookie day!

Of course cookies should have their own day! So I wanted to share my favorite cookie recipe – Martha Stewart’s Alexis chocolate chip cookies. They are super yummy – especially if you like brown sugar and butter!

Please let us know anything fabulous that you are chefing up! Also don’t miss my gift guide for foodies.

Have a great and safe weekend!
