What to do and read this weekend
Life is extremely busy for me lately. I know that it seems as if I have been slacking lately, but I am going to have to cut back on my posts. I am gonna cut back to 3-4 recipes a week. I know it sucks! Until things start to slow down around here, I am going to have to cut back. However, I will still keep up with the current things to do in DC. Did you know that you can check the current events all of the time by clicking on the events link above? I am going to continue posting them on Fridays don’t worry. In addition I am going to start linking to a few other blogs that have awesome posts. A little added bonus for my awesome readers.
Awesome Posts this Week
Chocolate S’mores Muffins – Yeah, chocolate and marshmallows together in a muffin. Elle totally outdid herself with this one.
Homemade Chili Powder – Chris from Nibble Me This made some awesome homemade chili powder. Not only did he make chili powder, he cold smoked the peppers first using a tin can and soldering iron. This is a must read if you have extra chili peppers lying around.
The Perfect Martini – SippitySup breaks down a list of the best martini’s. I am with greg when it comes to the perfect martini. I like his twist on the classic with a dash of orange bitters. Check it out for a list of great martinis.
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus – Dana and I are on a hummus kick. The stuff is super tasty. This recipe from Evil Shenanigans is right up my alley. Who doesn’t love garlic and smokey roasted peppers.
