Mouthwatering Mondays {Week 22}

Home again, home again jiggity jog.

I had the most amazing time at the Better Blog Retreat in Park City, Utah this past weekend.  While there, I  was blessed to be reunited with dearly cherished  friends, I bunked (literally) with old and new friends, I watched snow fall with new friends, was completely floored by the generosity, creativity, and deliciousness of the sponsors,  and lounged around the most luxurious home I’ve ever been in and watched snow SNOW! fall and stick while talking about dreams, passions, laughter, TV, photography, food, plug-ins, add ons, pinterest, G+ and more.

cheers to the memories blog-4794

I will tell y’all more about it and share pictures, stories, and introduce y’all to the women that I spent the weekend with, once I’ve sifted through 475 pictures, and I’ve re-adjusted to Texas time!

For now…..

It’s back to Mouthwatering Mondays!

Y’all’s recipes from last week were delicious looking, and sounding, and definitely let me know that Fall has arrived!  Home cooking, cozy foods, soul soothing, belly warming, curl up by the fire foods were definitely in the majority!

First up:  Slow Cooker Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes by Dana, from This Silly Girl’s Life.  Roasted Garlic is quite possibly one of the best foods on the planet, when combined with potatoes and butter and made in the slow cooker…. oh. my. stars, y’all.

I don’t care how old you get; if there are Rice Krispies treats on the table, you’re going for them.  With the addition of white chocolate and dried cranberries, I can’t imagine anyone passing these up these White Chocolate Chip Rice Krispies Treats by Pass The Fresh.

Banana Pudding is one of those recipes that whisks me back to my Granny’s kitchen, and I’m sort of in love with these little Mini Banana Cream Pies from Handmade in The Heartland.
