Friday Snacks (Recipe Edition)

It's Friday -- enjoy the snacks!

And since I missed last week, I added three of my favorite recipes at the end for you to try -- yum!

A little twee? Yes. But this embroidery-wrapped rock is also quite appealing to me, and I really like the color and pattern. (Via WhipUp)

Knitta Please! strikes in London! Brilliant!. (Via Extreme Craft)

Need a nice dinner idea? How about Seared Scallops on a Bed of Fresh English Pea and Mint Purée? Looks fairly easy, and deeeelish! From a new cookbook called Cooking for Two. Gotta try this when the spring peas hit the farmer's market... (Via Craftzine)

Cool New Blog Alert! Dude Craft brings you closer to all things crafty... and guy-friendly.

Check out these pictures from the Tokyo International Great Quilt Festival take by Moonstitches. Astonishing stuff. (Via Craftzine)

Bonus time! These are three of my favorite recipes that can be found online:

Oven Puffed Pancake
You make this in a cast iron skillet. It's so dramatic (puffs way up in the oven) and delicious. Super with maple syrup, fruit, nutella, you name it. An easy treat to make for yourself, and at the same time a bit of brunch wizardry to amaze your guest! (Serves 2-4)

Creamy Indian Lentils & Rice
My go-to recipe when I'm out of everything but am willing to run to the deli for sour cream. Serve with toasted pita bread and carrot sticks. A totally adequate protein source by itself, it occurs to me some sliced up sausage mixed in might be a tasty addition. (Serves 4-6)

Swedish Meatballs
So perfectly spicy, so succulent in their gravy. Really good with a side of buttered egg noodles or mashed potatoes and some blanched green beans. (Serves 4-6)
