The Thursday Thirteen – 07/09/2015

It’s been awhile since I’ve taken the time to elaborate on my Thursday Thirteen picks, because quite frankly the recipes usually speak for themselves. However, I’m feeling a little chatty today, so you’ll just have to bear with me.

1

As much as I despise hot dogs, I can’t wait to try these Pretzel Hot Dogs from The Busy Spatula. I’ll use some sort of premium German sausage of course, because there is not a person alive in this world that I will eat a hot dog for.

I don’t know where shrubs have been all of my life, because I certainly have never heard of them before, but you can bet I plan on trying one of these Strawberry Basil Pink Peppercorn Shrubs from JJ Begonia. Most likely while quoting Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

I still have an entire jar full of apple butter that I took from my brother Matt’s house when we were packing up all of his treasured collections. I think he would want me to make these Apple Butter Bacon Wrapped Shrimp from Nutmeg Nanny with it.

Let’s just be honest. I really don’t want to eat this Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Peach Filling and a Marzipan Cow from My Name Is Yeh, because I certainly have not turned into a cake person overnight. I’m just in love with the festive cow. I want this world to be overflowing with American flag cows. That’s my idea of a world worth living in.

I’ll be making a batch of these Crispy Parmesan Tomato Chips from Sugar-Free Mom in a few weeks, when our tomato plants start producing more tomatoes than B.O.B. Bob or I can possibly eat.

I don’t like stout, but occasionally I force B.O.B. Bob to buy it, because I NEED IT for making things like these Chocolate Stout & Blackberry Shortcakes from The Beeroness.

I have never like gin. NEVER! Until we recently bought a bottle from Copper Fox Distillery on our way home from a recent camping trip. Now I just have to make these Strawberry Gin Slushies from BHG Delish Dish

I’ve been contemplating doing a blog each month, where I take a recipe from someone else, and make it my own. First up is this Sun-Dried Tomato Crusted Chicken with Sunny Butter Sauce from The Mountain Kitchen. I’ve been dreaming of it since I first saw it on Instagram.

It’s that time of year when the zucchini in our garden start to grow faster than we can eat them, so this year I’ve decided to make Zucchini Brownies from Crazy for Crust with them. Who doesn’t love a brownie?

It takes a very special blog post to win me over, and make me follow along for the ride. Southern FATTY has captured my heart, and they did it with these Hot Chicken Waffle Sliders. I want to be your new best friend…PLEASE???

Which one of my neighbors wants to come over and help us eat Drunken Chicken Marsala with Tomatoes from Pinch of Yum? Going once, going twice, sold to the first person that responds!

I don’t really care for bourbon, but perhaps I can use vodka to make my own version of these Boozy Bourbon Cherries from Recipe Girl.

Forget the ice cream; I want to dig into this Crème Brûlée Frozen Custard from Spoon Fork Bacon. I can almost guarantee that it will be my new thing for this summer. Who’s ready to be my taste tester?

    I’m so glad to know that I am not the only one drawn to the creme brûlée frozen custard! I have a trip to the beach coming up with several friends, and think your pretzel hot dogs will make for a wonderful lunch. I’m excited to try them out!!!
