In hopes of kicking the writer's block, at least for today, I thought I would jump on not one, but two bandwagons that I've enjoyed for a long time from afar, but never participated in. (WWRW readers, feel free to skip to the bottom!)
1. Pinterest is really killing it these days. I've been making a bunch of recipes from my Deliciousness board with stunning success. My sister Cathy came over for tea last week, and we made these brownie-cookie dough-Reese's bites. It was really easy and they turned out better than they sound ... if that's even possible.

3. This list of one-tray dinners will change your concept of after-dinner clean-up. I made this one last night with some chicken, potatoes, and zucchini we had lying around. The meal was good, and the zucchini may have been the best I've ever had.
4. Ok, last one about food! Frank and I made toasted marshmallow shakes on Monday—highly recommend—they turned out great. And I promised him I will make this dark chocolate Guinness cake some time soon. Maybe next time Cathy comes over? (She's my designated dessert-baking partner).
5. I've been really enjoying my walk to work lately. Hyde Park has some really pretty houses with glorious front porches.
Front porches are kind of the greatest. I dream of having my own wrap-around someday. Porch swing and rocking chairs included, of course.

What We're Reading Wednesday
I'm reading two books right now, and loving them both.
Both of these books have been on my "Want to read" list for years. I'm glad I'm finally getting around to them—both are well worth it.
What are you reading this week?
