This week brought a smorgasbord of edible delight. From healthy pizza to colorful cake, there was a little bit of everything. We even took a trip to New Jersey to check out one of my favorite restaurants. In case you missed it…
Let’s review, shall we?
- Best Eggplant Parmigiana
“Best” is not a word I take lightly. This truly is the most amazing eggplant parmigiana you will ever eat.
- A Must Try: Mama’s Restaurant
Located in Hackettstown, this is one of my very favorite restaurants. Their menu has something for everyone, including those who are gluten-free.
- Chewy Biscoff Cookies
From Biscoff cookies to Biscoff spread and back to Biscoff cookies again.
- Light White Spinach Pizza
Two kinds of cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and fresh herbs…all for under 200 calories.
- Funfetti Cake with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
A moist and tender cake studded with rainbow sprinkles and topped with fluffy frosting.

Now, if you caught last week’s edition of the Weekender, then you know I’ve had an extra mouth to feed for the past 2 weeks. This little kitty showed up in the yard, and she’s been hanging around ever since.
When I first encountered her, she looked hungry, weak, and disheveled. So I started feeding her, and she’s definitely looking better. It was love at first sight with this cat, and now I’m borderline-obsessed. She comes by everyday, and I spend the majority of my time outside with her. Since she’s a stray, she’s extremely skittish. And despite how much time I’ve spent “talking” to her and feeding her, she still freaks out if I make too sudden a movement or try to pet her. I’m staying patient though. I have high hopes she’ll continue warming up to me and allow me to take her in.
In the meantime, I’ve named her Alice because she looks eerily like the Cheshire Cat.
So what have you guys been eating this week? I made something super simple in the skillet for dinner on Tuesday which will be coming your way this week! I swear, everything is better when it’s made in a cast-iron skillet.
Plus, you’ll be getting a brand spankin’ new video on Monday. We’re making fudge, but not just any fudge of course! Make sure you stop in Monday to check it out.
See you then!
