Fantastical Friday

We've had yet another crazy week. Monday, Nick and the kids were home. Tuesday, the kids went to school on a 2-hour delay. Wednesday, it went from 2-hour delay to cancelled. And yesterday, it was a 2-hour delay too. All because of this...

Tuesday night

Wednesday morning

I really would love to be in the South right now! We visit in a few weeks and in nine months get to move permanently. And man o' man - YES! I need some warmth in my life. Today, we're back to above 0*, but not until later on today. It's currently -17* feels like -30* and the kids are on a 2-hour delay...again.

Since it's cold outside, that means I'm inside staying warm and I have been hitting the books really hard - for school and for enjoyment - and been a pinning machine. So it's time again to share what I've been pinning, food-wise and it's a lot this week:

Fantastical Friday | I'm sharing my week and some of my favorite foodie finds (click through to find links to the recipes).

Row 1:
Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies from Barbara Bakes: After the cookie swap cookies, I love caramel pretzel together IN a cookie. I cannot wait to try this recipe!
Valentine's Fruit Roll-Up Fortune Cookies from She Grows: These are so cute and I'm just in awe of the creativity of them.
Banana Nut Whole Wheat Waffles from Six Sisters' Stuff: I am always up for a little variation. I haven't really used whole wheat flour a whole lot yet, but I do have some in my pantry that I would like to use before we move.
Totchos Supreme from Foodie With Family: Anything with supreme in the title is going to be good. I love totchos. No soggy chips and it's POTATOES. Om nom.

Row 2:
Pecan Brittle from My Baking Addiction - Pecans are probably my second favorite nut (after almonds). I like almonds for snacking and pecans in baking stuff. I think this variation of peanut brittle sounds and looks incredible.
Italian Baked Vegetables from Teachers of Good Things - You had me at Italian.
Roasted Potatoes, Chicken Sausage, and Peppers from Skinny Taste - I've never had chicken sausage, but I'm willing to give it a go. This dish looks so yummy.
Zucchini Chips from Table For Two - Zucchini chips! YES, YES, Y-E-S! I think it's either 3 or 4 ingredients too, so it's very simple.

Row 3:
Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Smoothie from Love Grows Wild - First off, the picture is absolutely stunning. Secondly, I need to break out my Ninja more and make smoothies for breakfast because 1) I don't eat fruit enough and 2) I really need to break out my Ninja more.
Easy Caramel Sauce from The Pioneer Woman - I have yet to find a good caramel sauce recipe with consistency that I like and PDub never lets me down, so I'm confident this will be a good one.
Slow Cooker Chili Cheese Fries from Creole Contessa - I just think this is genius. IN THE CROCKPOT. Everything seems so much more doable in the crockpot!
Cinnamon Roll Wrapped Donuts from Domestic Rebel - I cannot get over how good these look. Simple, gorgeous, and droolworthy.

Hope you all had a wonderful week!
Have a great weekend full of lots of great food :)
