Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m so happy to be back with my friends Mary Ann & Cindy with a few Sunday favorites! The first is a recipe (if you can even call it that) for your traditional Rice Krispie Treats, but made way better with a couple of twists!
1. Not your average Rice Krispie Treat
Brown Butter Rice Krispie Treats
Brown butter makes everything better!
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Total Time: 10 minutes
- Yield: 9 bars 1x
- 3 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
- 20 large marshmallows
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 cup dried wolfberries
- Melt the butter in a large pan and allow it to brown without burning. Watch closely and as soon as it’s a nice golden color, add the marshmallows.
- When the marshmallows have completely melted into the butter, remove from the heat and stir in the cereal and the wolfberries.
- Pour into a prepared 9 x 9 pan and cut into squares. Enjoy while warm!
This is your basic recipe for Rice Krispie treats, but make them brown butter and add a handful of colorful dried wolfberries and they are irresistible!
2. Car Picnics & The Lost Kitchen
Since the pandemic, we have taken the road for many day trips. The only tricky part is finding safe places to use the restroom and then where to eat. Those are important things! We will often pick up take-out and eat in the car. We will find a lovely spot with a nice view and have our lunch. It’s not the same as jetting off to Paris or flying to California to meet up with my blogging friends, but it’s still inspiring, and we have been to so many places that we may have never discovered had we not been in this situation. Last fall, we drove to Maine. We did not make it quite as far as Freedom, ME, but sure would like to in the future. I heard that Discovery+ features the beautiful story of how Erin French of The Lost Kitchen used her resilience and creativity to keep her team and locals farmers going during the pandemic. I’m looking forward to reading her book which releases April 6, 2021.
- The Oversized Stroopwafel Turtleneck in ReCashmere // 2. The Cashmere Crew Cardigan // 3. The Cashmere Crew // 4. The Cashmere Sweater Tee
Everlane is my go-to for sweaters. I love every sweater I have from Everlane and wear them every week. I love that I can wash them in the machine on a gentle cycle or just hang outdoors in the cold air in between washings. They are well made and reasonably priced. You can see them in this post from last year!
4. Eufy Light
These little lights are brilliant! You can place them along your baseboards in a hallway and bathroom, and they will light the way in the dark and then turn off. We have a bedroom located very close to the stairway, and if we ever have house guests again, it makes me nervous that someone might get confused and make a left and fall down the stairs. These lights will make me rest much easier knowing that the dark hallway will light up as needed. They use batteries and are very inexpensive!
5. It’s the Little Things, a new bowl for your dish brush
When I was picking up a few more flameless candles at Pottery Barn this week, I happened to notice this alabaster dish. I think it’s intended for potpourri, but I knew it would be perfect for my dish brush. It’s the little things that are getting us through… Make sure to visit Mary Ann & Cindy to see what they found this week!
