on my radar

by jenna on September 29, 2011

I’m hungry.

And I want your food.

I’ll host dinner tonight, you just need to do the cooking? k? I’ll supply the wine and furry black cat. It’ll be blast! But seriously…I get so many great food ideas from you guys and feel like I don’t share that enough! Every week I pretty much go through dozens of food blogs and bookmark meals I want to make the next coming up week. You guys do this too, right? That’s what I thought.

I’ve been loving all the recipes lately around the blogosphere…lots of yummy pumpkin, pizza and cornbread casseroles have caught my eye lately. You guys inspire me so much…I mean, spider web cakes in a jar? Really? Why aren’t I creative like that? Every month I tear out pages of crafty projects from Martha Stewart and then end up using them as impromptu paper plates for bagel sandwiches later in the week. Cheese and grease goes everywhere.

I’m hopeless.

Here are some of the recipes I’ve bookmarked this past week!

Pumpkin Biscuits by Sugarcrafter

Candied Jalapenos by Foodie with Family <—-super intrigued with this one! Might be a must-make this weekend…

Teriyaki Shrimp Soba Noodle Bowls by Lauren’s Latest

Eggy Breakfast Pizza by Joy the Baker

Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork by The Pioneer Woman

Vegetarian Mushroom and Cannellini Bean Ragout by Cookin’ Canuck

Raw Chocolate Shakes by The Family Kitchen

Fried Mozzarella Caprese Salad by A Cozy Kitchen (hi adrianna, please come back and visit soon! and bring your leopard pumps and fried cheese with you..please and thank you)

Blueberry Bars by Zoe Bakes

Chocolate Spider Web Cake in a Jar by I am Baker <—creepy…but delicious. what a creative idea!

Pumpkin Pie Shooters with an Oreo Crust by My Name is Snickerdoodle

Cheddar Chili Cornbread Pasta Bake by How Sweet Eats (jessica…come back, too!! please?)

Now…can someone really come over and cook me dinner tonight? I’ll send you home with a doggy bag full of fried rice!

Wow, the blueberry bars sound delicious, and they look gorgeous too! Thanks for mentioning some new-to-me blogs. Now I’ve got new sources of inspiration too! :)


Molly @ RDexposed September 29, 2011 at 4:48 am

But my food is your food tonight. Vegan jambalaya! I’m not sure if the boyfriend prefers to eat it or just say loves saying the name like Newman from the Soup Nazi episode. Either way, that’s tonight’s dinner!


Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats September 29, 2011 at 4:58 am

Great roundup of recipes! I am bookmarking/pinning recipes all day long too. There’s simply not enough days in the year to get through them all! ps that spider cake is freaky/amazing!!! 😉


katie @KatieDid September 29, 2011 at 5:09 am

Yup that chili cornbread totally caught my eye last week also. It’s definitely on my to-make list. And those spider web cakes are SO cool, thanks for sharing the link. I’m not sure I could ever pull that off but they are awesome to dream about making lol.


Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance September 29, 2011 at 5:10 am

Always looking for new shrimp soba bowl recipes 😀


Sam September 29, 2011 at 5:20 am

i made the dr. pepper shredded pork a few months ago and it was amazing!


Khushboo September 29, 2011 at 5:28 am

OHh Eggy breakfast pizza- I could so get on that!


Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove September 29, 2011 at 5:52 am

Is it bad I use Pinterest for bookmarking recipes I want to try? Because I do and it’s wonderful.


Heather @ Better With Veggies September 29, 2011 at 5:52 am

I’m the same way – I love all the recipes I find on everyone’s blogs – never enough time to make them all. I’m ready for all the Halloween recipes to begin, so many fun things you can do with that theme! :)


Kristina September 29, 2011 at 5:54 am

Which is that bottom photo?? It looks delicious…!


Sally Anne @ PaleoRunnerGirl September 29, 2011 at 5:55 am

oooh! I love these posts! All of those recipes sound SO yummy!


Jessica @ Jess Go Bananas September 29, 2011 at 5:58 am

I bookmark recipes too! :)


Kelly Anderson September 29, 2011 at 5:58 am

Thanks for the great ideas! Love your blog. I’ve been reading it for a couple of weeks and have gotten a lot of good ideas. Your fried rice recipe will be tried next week. Keep it up!! : )


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 29, 2011 at 6:03 am

I’ve seen so many fall-inspired desserts lately. And soups. And wonderful stuff. Between my google reader, Pinterest, Foodgawker and more….I have more things bookmarked than time to ever get to them all. But I’d like to :)


Kelly September 29, 2011 at 6:09 am

Spicy Dr. Pepper shredded pork is life changing. I may never put barbecue sauce on shredded pork again. Seriously.


Lauren @ What Lauren Likes September 29, 2011 at 6:13 am

All these links looked sooo good! Thanks :)


Hilliary@HappilyEverHealthy September 29, 2011 at 6:19 am

Blueberry bars, raw chocolate shakes, and pumpkin pie shooters! Those all sound amazing! Thanks for sharing them!


Kim H September 29, 2011 at 6:36 am

I’ve made Foodie with Family’s candied jalapenos and they are sooooo good. I made them last year and everyone loved them so much they want me to make them this year, too. The only negative to making them is the lingering vinegar smell in the kitchen :)


Liz @ Tip Top Shape September 29, 2011 at 6:41 am

All of these recipes sound fantastic! Off to click through them..


kathleen @ the daily crumb September 29, 2011 at 6:47 am

oooo those pumpkin pie shooters look delicious!! thanks for the recipe roundup, jenna!


amy walters, aDESIGNdock September 29, 2011 at 6:53 am

What an adorable post Jenna. While I’d love to fly in from the Canadian prairies for an impromptu visit, my cooking skills are a little rusty (read: hectic life = cereal for supper)! 😉


Cait's Plate September 29, 2011 at 7:09 am

You had me at “doggie bag of fried rice” – hope you like eggs and toast (or possibly cereal) for dinner! 😉


Amy W. September 29, 2011 at 7:16 am

You’ve made me a fan of your blog, that’s for sure! Thanks for the new recipes for me to bookmarks (and thanks for the shout out!)


Michelle September 29, 2011 at 7:21 am

Hi Jenna! I am totally going to try those candied jalapenos too. If you end up having any fall or Halloween get togethers you you should try my caramel apple jello shots (served in real apples) ! They are delish :)


Im a big fan (youre kinda my inspiration)



Moni'sMeals September 29, 2011 at 7:38 am

Awesome recipe roundup Jenna!

Just when I got all caught up too…now I have more and more amazing recipes to try out…I love it, as a passion is a passion. 😉


Maria@La_Piattini September 29, 2011 at 7:45 am

I love this post- thanks Jenna! Now I have a ton more recipes to bookmark and a bunch of new awesome blogs to follow :)


Jen September 29, 2011 at 7:48 am

Of course we all take note of recipes. I just bookmarked your fried rice yesterday! It’s perfect, because my little brother just had his birthday dinner at Benihana, but since they use regular soy sauce there (I can’t eat gluten), I didn’t have any! It was a sad moment in my life.


Deva @ Deva by Definition September 29, 2011 at 8:07 am

If I were nearby, I would totally come over and cook for you. I love to cook, but because most of my cooking method is “a dash of this, a pinch of that, a hefty shake of this… mix.. taste.. add more..” I don’t post many recipes.


Sarah September 29, 2011 at 8:22 am

Love the recipe recap, I’d totally come cook for you if I was nearby!! Imagine the potluck we could have if all of these amazing bloggers lived in one area (or owned private jets to fly all around the country ;))


Casey @ Pocket Full of Sunshine September 29, 2011 at 8:37 am

All of these sound so good, Jenna! Thanks for the links!


Adrianna from A Cozy Kitchen September 29, 2011 at 8:39 am



Dynamics September 29, 2011 at 9:23 am

After checking out the spider web cake I came back to your website and saw the Raw Chocolate Shakes. After going to the website and seeing the chocolate shakes I realized I had read it as Raw Chocolate SNAKES…HA


Sweet Marcella September 29, 2011 at 9:56 am

I totally made Jessica’s corn bread (sans the chili, but it would def go well together)!!! I also loved Joy’s breakfast pizza idea :)


Liz @ Southern Charm September 29, 2011 at 10:02 am

Love this post! Buying my plane ticket now … this would be the best dinner party ever!


Sara B. September 29, 2011 at 10:38 am

All of the titles to those recipes sound so intriguing. I’ll definitely have to check them out right away!


erin @WELL in L.A. September 29, 2011 at 10:41 am

Just when I was wondering what to have for dinner tonight… thank you for the great round up of inspiring, seasonal meals and sides!


Cookin' Canuck September 29, 2011 at 10:59 am

I find myself bookmarking a ton of recipes from blogs too and wish that I had extra hours in the day to make all of them. Thanks so much for including my mushroom ragout recipe. And as for that fried rice…yes, please!


Cait H. September 29, 2011 at 11:35 am

I’ve had that Dr. Pepper pulled pork and it is FANTASTIC.


Gwen September 29, 2011 at 12:22 pm

Yum! What I really want to know though is, what are the recipes for the 2 photos you featured in this post!?


Lauren@LittleYellowKitchen September 29, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I’ve found myself staring at Jessica’s cornbread casserole too!! I’ll come for dinner if we cook that :)


Brittney September 29, 2011 at 2:27 pm

You have to make the Spicy Dr. Pepper Pork. So perfect!


Jessica @ How Sweet September 29, 2011 at 3:18 pm

thanks for sharing friend! trust me… i wish i could come back too.


Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 29, 2011 at 3:49 pm

I always spend aaaages perusing food blogs for recipe ideas too. Or I just cheat and go to Tastespotting so that I don’t have to do the hunting on my own. 😀


RunningtoMusic September 29, 2011 at 11:20 pm

Wow! What great recipes! Thanks for posting, can’t wait to try some of these!!!!!


Eszter September 30, 2011 at 12:49 am
