Friday Wallflavourites: Edition 5

Whoo, we made it–happy Friday, folks! Welcome to week 5 of my Friday Wallflavourites, starring some of the most awesome recipes from around the blogosphere this week! Follow me on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and Pinterest for daily updates about what’s on my favorite recipes radar. If it’s your first time here–welcome, I love meeting new faces! I hope you poke around my blog to see more fun features and lively recipes.

It’s Friday, so naturally we need to get the glasses out. Pour me a tall order of this Rhubarb, Grapefruit, and Thyme Cocktail via Top With Cinnamon (annnnd it’s Izy’s first homemade drink! Yay, welcome to the Tall Glasses Club, girl!)

Rhubarb, Grapefruit and Thyme Cocktails

Be still, my heart! We all need some extra crumble in our lives, and with my favorite drink (Kahlua) mixed in, how could this Triple Berry Kahlua Crisp go wrong? From Halfbaked Harvest (love this girl!).

Speaking of nothing but delicious foods, I want to wake up every morning now to these Strawberry Lemonade Morning Buns introduced by Steph from Steph’s Bite By Bite. So glad I found her blog recently, I’m drooling…


So Liz is, as always, a baking genius in my book, so I got majorly excited when I spotted these gorgeous Tropical Napoleons on her blog, That Skinny Chick Can Bake. Fabulous, Liz!

I have no words for this semifreddo–my latest obsession during these hot summery days! This Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Semifreddo via Sugar Et Al is rockin’ my world.


And to top off the crisp fetish that seems to be absolutely lighting up my world this week, I’d love to sink my fork into this Rhubarb Rose Water Crisp (gluten-free!) via the wonderful Allison at Clean Wellness, a delightful blog that I found not too long ago and dearly love reading.

  1. Aren’t you a doll, Ala!!! Thanks so much for the mention! All your features look terrific 🙂

    1. “A doll”–nobody’s ever called me that, and I’m grinning like an idiot because that phrase makes all the warm fuzzies inside me bubble up. Your Napoleon dessert was amazing, so that feature is well-earned. Thank you, and hope you have an amazing long weekend!

  2. Mmmm, loads of good stuff to try. Good thing it’s a long weekend! 😉

    1. Yes, and I hope you’re enjoying it–thank you for taking the holiday time to stop by, John. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  3. Happy Friday, girl! You know that I LIVE for this day. I wait (not so) patiently all week for it! Fabulous list today, especially of the blogs. I think I follow and love all of those blogs and their bloggers! I hope you have amazing things planned for your weekend! Your guest post is still generating incredible comments, just so you know, and it’s because you rock.

    1. Yes, I remember this conversation–Fridays are YOUR day! Too bad Fridays aren’t called something like Nidays, because then Nance Nidays would be alliterative (I suppose we could do Fancy-Nancy Fridays–would that work?) It’s pretty crazy how one blog leads to another, isn’t it? I am 99% sure I found one or two blogs through yours and must have clicked all the way through to these other amazing ones. Lovin’ the community so much! And THANK YOU for your kind words, though you need to take lots of that credit yourself and hoard it like a mouse, girl. You’re amazing!! Off to go read your blog now <3

  4. Some great favorites this week. Thanks for including mine.

    1. Absolutely–it was an awesome, well-deserved feature. Thanks for always sharing such wonderful stuff, Barbara! Have a fantastic long weekend.

  5. Oh my goodness. Everything looks amazing. Those morning buns though…they’re calling my name!

    1. Right?! I hope you’re having one tomorrow morning–I won’t be making breakfast, sadly, but I’m definitely going to eat it off my screen when I wake up. Have a fantastic long weekend, Monet!

  6. Thank you for including me in Friday Wallflowers! So many scrumptious spring recipes to devour!

    1. Deb, of course! And I’m so glad I discovered your blog so I can feature it more often, because I love it in a hopefully non-creepy-seeming way. Have a lovely long weekend, and thanks for sharing your awesome stuff with the blogosphere!

  7. Thank you so much for posting a link to my Chocolate Covered Cherry Brownies post. I am honored to be on the same page as the rest of these bloggers.

    1. Aren’t they just wonderful? And you too, gal–a well-earned feature! I’m so glad you enjoy popping by each week to check out these incredible bloggers. I really do love that recipe–I hope you’re having a splendid Memorial weekend as well, Shari!

  8. What a mouth watering line up this is! It’s dangerous to look at this at 11 PM when I should be going to bed, not going to the kitchen for a snack! 🙂 Thanks so much for including my blog! I’m so excited to have discovered yours as well! Your name and tag line are the cutest!

    1. Thanks a bushel and a peck for your kind words, Courtney! I’m so glad to have you stop by after I’ve been perusing and lurking around your blog for a while now–I love your recipes and photos. In fact, I just stopped by to say hello again. So excited to see you around, have a lovely long weekend!

  9. I love this list. I think Friday will quickly become my favorite day 😉 Love that rhubarb cocktail. I went looking for some rhubarb today ta the farmer’s market but couldn’t find any. Thanks for the blog suggestions. Love Nancy!! And I just started reading a few you listed like Real Dad Food and Neighbor Food and love them. Can’t wait to check out the rest!

    1. You mean you need an excuse to make your favorite day Friday, Zainab?! I kid. I love Fridays so much though! I’m so glad you’re checking out their blogs because AREN’T THEY WONDERFUL 😉 as lovely as you and your blog. Cheers, girl!

  10. Ala!!! You are way too sweet to share my post! I’m so honoured! You’re a wonderful lady, you know. I also enjoy reading your wonderful blog! You really made me day! 🙂

    1. Hah–the same to you, Allison! I am so so glad we’ve found each other, and you totally deserve the mention–such a bright, lovely writing voice. It’s great to see you around, have a wonderful week!

  11. Thank you for including my post, my friend. This is such an amazing round up. I have a sweet tooth (as you might have guessed by now) and I’d love to have each and every one of them. Glad to have discovered this space.:-)

    1. Oh, absolutely! And I’m just so stoked to try your ice cream very soon, it’s been perfectly warm. Thanks for moseying on over here, let’s stay in touch for sure!

  13. I love your word-inventing abilities! I’m actually quite envious of this one, wishing I’d thought of it first… You’ve got great taste, Ala, I’m loving all these recipes (and thank you for sharing my bressert cuffincakes ;-))

    1. Hah! Thanks so much, Aimee–I probably spend waaay too much time punning around instead of being productive 🙂 your bressert cuffincakes are totally medal-worthy, and neologisms are the best! Glad you could stop by, gal, have yourself a lovely day!

  14. Ala you got me with the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookie Semifreddo, I’ve never seen anything that looks so good. So guess what I’ll be making tomorrow. Thanks for sharing that one!
