It is time for another round of Mystery Dish! I took a few months off from this fun challenge, but I am back! Every month a group of my blog friends and I choose a list of ingredients, and we each have to come up with a recipe using some of the mystery ingredients. It is so much fun to come up with new recipes, and it always challenges me to step out of my comfort zone a bit in the kitchen. Which leads me to….

Potato Chip Cookies…yes, I put potato chips in my cookies. I really thought that I would never put potato chips in my cookies. I know that it has been done many times before, but to me it seems so, well, weird. But, Mystery Dish made me do it. I had no choice. Potato chips were on the list this month along with chocolate chunks and almond butter and I just knew that I had to make almond butter chocolate chunk potato chip cookies. And I am so glad that Mystery Dish lead me to this cookie creation, because these cookies are so good! I still think potato chip cookies are kind of weird, but I can get over it because they taste delicious!

Happy Friday! Labor Day Weekend is so bittersweet. I love having a day off work, the promise of my favorite season ahead, and Notre Dame football starting tomorrow (!). But on the other hand, it means the end of summer which is always kind of sad. So to send summer off in style I drank a bottle of Rosé with my friends last night and made baked blueberry donuts for you – because nothing says summer to me more than fresh berries! And Rosé.

Also, today marks the year anniversary of the Mystery Dish group!! I joined the group late, but I still get to celebrate with them, right?! We are giving away a copy of two fabulous cookbooks – Luca Manfe’s My Italian Kitchen and Christina Ha’s Recipes from My Home Kitchen – scroll to the bottom and enter to win!

Farro Salad | chezcateylou.com
Do you ever have an amazing dish at a restaurant that you wish you could recreate at home? I had the most incredible farro salad at one of our favorite restaurants in NYC, Charlie Bird.  I know it doesn’t sound that exciting – I mean it is salad after all.  But I promise you, this salad is memorable.  And when I got home from dinner and googled it, I found a  recipe in the New York Times for the farro salad! Lucky me!

Sidenote – Charlie Bird is delicious.  If you live here and haven’t tried it yet, you really should!  Their chicken is outstanding!   Also when we were eating there once with TheBetterHalf’s parents, we saw Jerry Seinfeld and his family.   One of our best celeb sightings!

Remember this blackberry cinnamon roll cake? It was one of my all time favorite things that I have ever made. So easy, so delicious, so impressive – it is literally the perfect breakfast recipe! So I decided to change it up a bit and make a peach pecan version! I am such a huge fan of peaches – they are my favorite thing to eat in the summer (ok, other than ice cream!) – and I really like the flavor of peaches  with cinnamon.  I combined the flavors in my Peach Yogurt Bread and it is one of the top recipes on my site!  Speaking of yogurt, did you enter to win FREE Chobani yet??
