Friday Finds

Flowers from my son

Happy Friday!

Like many of you, I like to spend a little time throughout the week looking for new recipes, home design inspiration, and anything else which catches my eye. I am quite a collector, as you will see if you check out my Pinterest page. Since I find so many wonderful things every week, I thought it would be nice to share a handful of them with you for a new series of “Friday Finds”. I enjoy catching up on a few other bloggers’ Friday posts, like that. I want to join the party.

I hope you will enjoy some of the links I will be sharing with you. Here we go…


I just want to dig right into these baked chai donuts.

This chocolate hazelnut baklava looks to-die-for. I want to devour it right now.

Moussaka is one of my all-time favourite dishes. It’s like a Greek lasagna. This moussaka recipe looks delicious.

Although it is spring here in Australia, part of my heart will always be back home in America, so I still crave autumnal desserts at this time of year. This pumpkin and cream cheese cake looks so wonderful. I love the pretty criss-cross pattern on top.

Another autumnal recipe which I’m dying to try is this caramel apple sheet cake. I’m actually planning to go buy a sheet cake pan because of this recipe (and because I feel the need to have almost every kind of cake pan imaginable, which drives my partner crazy, haha).

If you ever have the pleasure of being in Sydney, Australia, you might want to try going on one of these gorgeous coastal walks. I know I plan to do that, the next time I’m there!

I’m smitten with this lovely white weatherboard house, built in the 1890s in Victoria.

This recipe for pan-seared scallops with chorizo and corn sounds so good.

As you may know, I’m a major s’mores fan. When I saw this graham cracker cake recipe, I swooned.

I don’t often tend to go for recipes which use a boxed cake mix, but these Texas sheet cake cookies look like they would just melt in your mouth. I might have to bake a batch of them soon.

One of my favourite cooking shows is Patti’s Mexican Table. I love her delicious recipes and her sweet personality. This veggie-filled Mexican lasagna is on my must-make list.

I have fallen in love with the beautiful landscape paintings by Michelle Morin.

I always enjoy the flavour of real maple syrup, so this maple cake with maple streusel looks dreamy to me.

Last but certainly not least, don’t miss this beautiful Hamptons-style home in Perth. It is a blue-and-white-filled vision of paradise. The master bedroom and lounge are just exquisite.

That’s it for this week! I hope you’ll come back next Friday for more lovely links. Have a great weekend, everybody!
