Happy Friday!

tukskitchen.comHello! How are you doing? How is your week? Here autumn has arrived and things have turned rainy. Like soaked-on-your-cycle-to-work-rainy. Reason more to be happy that it is weekend so there is boundless time to curl up on the couch and to turn on the oven. So by all means I am happy it is Friday. 🙂
These are the things that made me smile this week 🙂

I couldn’t help but laugh out loud when seeing the summary of these jokes: ‘Donald looks at the Statue of Liberty and sees a 4, maybe a 5 if she loses the torch and tablet and changes her hair.’

I am planning to take it slow this weekend and to wind down while spending some time in the kitchen. I hope to make this Chocolate Pavlova to bring to friends, and I would love to try my hands at making this Cheese Ball.

Has anyone ever made Onion Rings? I am tempted to go for this recipe that is using chickpea flour, but am simultaneously scared to deep-fry…

In case the rain stops, I would love to go mushroom-hunting, and make this recipe with brown-butter sage.

A superb cocktail bar we visited last week served a bacon-apple concoction (!). Considering how delicious it was, I am considering to make this Bacon Infused Bourbon to give as holiday presents, and am looking for a cocktail-recipe to write on the label.

With a winter-appropriate need for hibernation, this is a good time to take a little more care of ourselves. Celebrating your strengths is a good thing and this article makes a really good point.

And along those lines it is this series of articles on Beauty Uniforms that gives us a real honest insight in women’s lives and approaches to care. I like this quote: ‘We’re supposed to pretend that we aren’t high maintenance, because that’s looked down upon or somehow thought of as anti-intellectual.’

And just because I can’t eat all of it, doesn’t mean that I can’t have a look, awesome cakes: here and here! Oh, and in case you missed it: here some tips & tricks on making a Geode Cake at home.

Have a wonderful weekend!
