Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)


First and foremost, I think it's safe to say that so many of us were touched in one way or another by Leslie Sisti, blogger at A Blonde Ambition. I was shocked and saddened by her passing this week from a congenital heart condition. Leslie exuded charm and grace in everything she did. A mama to two sweet baby girls, a wife to her loving husband, a daughter, a friend. I loved reading her blog, following her sweet family in Instagram, and watching her video tutorials. A fund has been set up (here) to help with her baby girls' college tuitions and weddings. This just breaks my heart.


Last night I hosted Supper Club at our home. We keep it simple: the host cooks the entire meal (appetizer, main dishes, dessert) and attendees just bring a bottle of wine. Last night we had mushroom ravioli with chorizo, spinach, and cherry tomatoes. Oh, and parmesan ... lots of parmesan. It was delish and I have great leftovers to take to the office today. And the girl time was wonderful, as always!

Calling all fellow breakfast and brunch lovers: check out this recipe ... Maple Sausage French Toast Bake.

Maple Sausage Baked French Toast | Real Housemoms | #Brunch #FrenchToast #Breakfast

A huge plus for me? It doesn't contain too many ingredients: breakfast sausage, a loaf of French bread, milk, eggs, salt, brown sugar, and maple syrup. I can't wait to make this!

Speaking of breakfast... I love a cup of coffee in the morning, and earlier this week I Amazon Primed (is that a verb? cool.) an assortment of Crazy Cups coffee to our front door. I love this assortment of wacky flavors. So far, my favorites have been Apple Pie a la Mode, Frosted Oatmeal Cookie, and Bananas Foster Flambe.

If you are looking for some fun K-cups to use with your Keurig, you can find them on Amazon here. They are great for having around if you are hosting houseguests, too!

And lastly ... amen!

Live for today...

TGIF y'all, and hope you will join in on Five on Friday this week! Cheers to the weekend!


  1. So sad about Leslie, my heart was so sad on Tuesday when i heard the news. I'm not sure if you've heard, but RiffRaff is donating ALL proceeds today to Caroline and Ainsley's fund. How generous, right?!? Have a great weekend.

  2. I started reading Leslie's blog way back in 2011, I can't believe she's gone!

  3. That breakfast casserole looks amazing! Trying it ASAP! Happy weekend pretty lady :)

  4. Prayers to Leslie's family. Also...loving your supper club keeping it simple...what fun! xx.

  5. I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Leslie. I've followed her and read her blog for about a year, and can't believe what a loss this is.

    Can you please post the recipe for your mushroom ravioli with chorizo

  6. So sad about Leslie - your last quote really sums up how everyone should live life to the fullest. Have a great weekend!

  7. One of my favorite parts of having a Keurig is experimenting with different K-Cups!! I'll have to check those out :) That maple sausage french toast bake looks incredible!!

    Thanks for hosting!

  8. Thanks for hosting. I put two up this week (mistake on my part). Hope that is okay. Grandkids are here so it's a bit crazy. I make that exact same maple french toast bake. It is really good. A great dish to have for guests. Enjoy your weekend.

  9. I ordered those K Cups on a whim and LOVED them! My husband, however? Notsomuch. But they were fun while they lasted in our house! :)

  13. I felt punched in the stomach when I heard about Leslie...Even now when I see her picture now. Praying so hard for her family and Stephen and the girls. I mean, i cannot imagine

  14. I have been so shaken by Leslie's passing. So incredibly heart breaking! I so want to start a supper club but, am afraid I won't have enough girls commit long term! Sounds like so much fun though!! That breakfast casserole looks & sounds A-mazing!! And I love that quote! Would be super cute to print and frame by a mini bar or something of the sort!

  15. That "Crazy Cups" selection sounds delicious! May have to get some myself :)

  19. I still can't believe about Leslie.

    Ordering those k cups now. Kevin got a keurig this week!

  20. Crazy cups? OMG. I need these in my life ASAP. Thanks for sharing, love! xx

  21. I was just catching up on your blog posts and read the news about Leslie - I had absolutely no idea. Hers was one of the first blogs I ever read. Such horrible news and sending prayers to her family.
    completely unrelated note, it was fun catching back up on everything on your blog!

  22. I also shocked, and so sad for her, I didn't know about that news, actually I follow her since 2 years, just because to get some help to do my assignment for me, I am also blogger, and usually I get much help from bloggers.
