friday food files


 Shameless Cupcakes photo taken using

There's a new little business here in Sonora called Shameless Cupcakes and their cupcakes are divine!  We went in for the first time to pick up a little surprise for the kiddos and ended up buying a dozen little surprises!  We tried to pick out one of each flavor that sounded yummy to us, hoping that we would find our favorites and can keep buying those flavors.  However, we've loved each and every cupcake that we have tried thus far.  This might prove to be a little dangerous.  ((snicker)) 

I'm sure we've all heard how important it is for families to eat dinner together (Time Magazine article  |  NPR  |  The New York Times).  At our house we've been slacking on this quite a bit lately, and Troy and I would really like to get back into this very important habit.  This book by Laurie David has been in my cart at Amazon and I think it may be time to check out. 

Penne Pasta with Sun-dried Tomato Cream Sauce is something that I'd really like to try soon.  A bunch of pasta-heads live in my house, so I'm sure it will be a hit!  I'll be sure to update here if we do give it a go...

These Easy Chicken Enchiladas are truly yummy!  I've made them twice since I came across the recipe a couple of weeks ago and they got devoured both times.
I usually plan on serving them with some homemade Spanish rice and refried beans, but my hubby has insisted that the enchiladas will be enough -- if I were to serve anything else with them, it means he won't be able to eat as many enchiladas.  Silly boy.

Another favorite in this house is stews and soups during cooler weather.  This Spicy Chicken Stew recipe looks like it could be a winner.  I'll let ya know!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and having a look at my F r i d a y F o o d
 F i l e s . Do you have any new food finds you'd like to share? If so, I'd love to hear about them!


  1. And I agree! We try to eat dinner together most nights, and I try to cook 5 nights a week. It takes a bit of planning, though! ^_^
