Food Lover’s Friday

A long week–they always seem even longer after a stretch of holidays, don’t they? Welp, next one isn’t until May so suck it up!

The recipes for this Food Lover’s Friday definitely are a good cop/bad cop kind of team. You have the cake, which is DELICIOUS but still cake (bad, bad cake!), and then you have the Vietnamese chicken salad which is great either on the jicama or as a big salad with everything chopped up together (good, healthy salad)!

I highly suggest trying both recipes! Especially now that you know that I give them TheSpicyBee stamp of approval! For more recipe successes to build your cooking arsenal, follow my boards on Pinterest!

GF Chocolate Skillet Cake

I made this cake a little while back with my nieces, and not only was it quite error proof, it was delicious! We made it in my 12in cast iron skillet that we are so glad we found on Amazon for a STEAL (under $20!!). We followed the recipe using a GF flour mix from Only Sometimes Clever. I need to get another batch of this out the door and into my office because I know it will be a real crowd pleaser.

We had this Wednesday night for dinner and at the end my husband looked over at me and said “that was much better than I expected it to be!” If that isn’t a win for a Pinterest Recipe I don’t know what is!

    I love this idea for a series! There are SO many recipes out there that I want to try, but don’t know if they are worth it. And, goodness knows you don’t have time to always create your own recipes. Cheers for finding something that is useful to readers while not being as time consuming! Oh, and I LOVE making things in my cast-iron skillet. I use it ALL THE TIME. One of my fav desserts to make is a giant chocolate chip cookie in the pan. One of many recipes I’ve used: ( Although, I typically use chocolate chunks and a little extra salt… oh, and like Alton Brown, I like to use Kosher salt rather than table salt.)
