    Football plus cooler weather equals chili! I finally perfected my recipe and can’t wait to make it for the first time this season!

  9. Julie says:

    Once I finish my daughters costume on Friday I am going to make this wonderful slow cooker lemon chicken that I found on allrecipes.com. I made it today, and it was so good I am going to make a bigger batch of it and freeze some. Am also going to make some pumpkin raisin bread. Then I want to pull out my scraps and start making Barbie and Ken a wardrobe for my daughter’s Christmas present.
    I’m so glad to have found this group. It’s like a cool breeze on a muggy, grimy day.

  10. Ursula says:

    I’ve found an easy way to use up my scraps…I donate them to my granddaughter’s classroom for craft time. They love them.

    As for what’s on the menu this weekend…homemade bread and chicken soup.

  11. beth says:

    I made some pumpkin, oatmeal, choc.chips cookies today. I posted the recipe on my blog and hope to eat them ALL week!

  12. jean says:

    first I have to make the Scalloped Fabric Garland in Christmas fabrics and then the leftovers can make patchwork gift bags.

  13. Debi P says:

    I’m planning on learning how to make champarrado, which is a Mexican drink made of chocolate, milk, cinnamon and masa (or another grain as a thickener). I’m souring different websites to see some of the variations. This is a good way to learn something new and realize that there isn’t a wrong way to do it, or pick up those little tips that mamacita never shared with you when she made it.

  14. VickiT says:

    Scrapbusters sounds like a great idea. I have a ‘few’ scraps laying around. LOL

    Cooking? Hmmm tonight we had a yummy lasagna recipe made in the crockpot with a few of my tweaks done to the recipe. Not sure yet tomorrow but it looks like possibly a hamburgery & macaroni recipe I found recently. Then I think Sunday I’m making a yummy big pot of Homemade chicken & dumplings since I just got whole chickens on sale for $.88/lb yesterday. YUM

  15. sandy says:

    I’m planning to make weight watcher potato soup … hmmmm good and only takes 20min. AND black bean brownies … yes black bean. Recipe here
    http://sandyquilts.blogspot.com/2008/02/best-brownies-in-world.html

  16. MamaRuck says:

    I plan on cooking some of eggplant from my Dad’s garden. I am thinking fried eggplant strips with coconut soup

  17. Judea says:

    I can’t wait to see all the creative ideas to use up my scraps.

  18. Sharon says:

    It has been raining in Michigan for the last 4 days, and the leaves have started to turn red. It’s ideal weather for Belgian Beef Stew. Maybe I will make pumpkin pancakes for breakfast. The pumpkin colored mums that I planted last week have inspired me to think fall!

  19. Nancy B says:

    I really like the Scrap Busters Month contest. I NEED to “bust” my stash; how else can I justify buying more fabric?

  20. Lacey Story says:

    The weather is cold and rainy here in MI so I will be making curried butternut squash and apple soup with a homemade loaf of bread and a salad with maple-roasted pumpkin pieces, pumpkin seeds, red onion, sheep’s milk feta and a maple-dijon vinegrette. My all-time favorite fall meal!!!

  21. Becky says:

    Didn’t recognize your website! Hope you will pick me for a free yard of fabric. I will be working on my tutorial for the scrap project!

  22. vintage girl says:

    yeah I feel inspired to make scrap bags.

  23. Julie says:

    I have recently been going through old hand written recipe cards of my grandmothers and found a recipe for a brown sugar pound cake! Yum!

  24. Susan says:

    It’s chilly in the mornings here in NC, but warm in the afternoons. I’m making a big pot of Rachel Ray’s Chicken Mug Pie – saw her make it on her show early this year, and my family loves it!

  25. Leah says:

    This weekend I’ll be making apple pie, dried apples and freezing apples…

    Like the look of your new updates, but its not working right now in Firefox…

  26. Emily says:

    It is chili weather here – and maybe cornbread? Yum.

  27. renee says:

    I plan on hitting the farmer’s market and picking out pumpkins. I’ll proably make roasted seeds and make my husband’s award winning pumpkin bread. Sorry I’m not at liberty to disclose the recipie. The funny thing is that hubby hates baking but can write awsome baking recipies.

  28. I have fallen in love with this site!! I look forward to looking through every last inch of it.. As for whats cooking in my house, LOTS.. I love to cook, and my dinner , on Friday night because I am one of those cooks who write out recipes for a month, buy ingredients, and then cook it for a week usually.. But, Fridays calendar shows I am having Chicken Fried CHICKEN, garlic green beans from our garden, mashed potatoes with garlic and horseradish mixed in.. and for dessert.. well this is bad, but NOTHING but our mountian huckleberries mixed in with vanilla yogurt and drizzle of honey.. Thanks again for a fun website… I am glad to have found it today!

  29. Kathleen says:

    A friend just brought me six corn on the cobs! That’s going to be the delicious part of my dinner! :)

  30. Rosa in Antipodes says:

    Roast lamb with rosemary and loads of garlic, a New Zealand classic with a Mediterranean twist…lol!

  31. Kristen says:

    I feel inspired to make a scrap quilt. How fun! Living in CA we have yet to feel the change of the season – it has been over 100 degrees this past week! Not feeling inspired for any cold weather food yet. I’m thinking a homemade chicken pot pie for tonight.

  32. Katrina says:

    In order to embrace the change in season, I will be cooking a delicious, winey, garlicky potroast.

  33. julie says:

    Love the redesign! So chic! I’m making lemon-blueberry muffins. Perfect for fall mornings.

  34. LisaCorrie says:

    I will be making tempura and a soy, ginger salmon. Also, apple pie, zucchini bread, potato bread and maybe some granola bars.

  35. corinne says:

    um. i’ll admit i had a five guys burger over the weekend. i did, however, make some ratatouille before that with some farmer’s market produce – delicious!

  36. I love your new design! I had to pop in here and say that.

    I just noticed that I have ketchup on my keyboard, but I don’t think it is related.

  37. shannon says:

    i made a curried couscous salad with pecans and dried cranberries… delish!

  38. Kerry says:

    I made a revised version of a new (to me) ham & fettucine alfredo dish Saturday for lunch. Instead of fettucine, I used penne pasta. I also added mozzerella cheese to complete the cup of parmesan cheese that was only half full. It seemed to be a winner in our family. We ate some of the leftovers last night.

  39. Skippy says:

    Mmmmm I made the warmest, comfiest casserole last night since we’re firmly into autumn in the UK. Simple but comforting – chicken, carrots, new potatoes, aubergine, butter beans and lots of herbs from the garden.

    Loving the scrap challenge too – gonna go rack my brains and raid the scrap stash.

  40. Susan says:

    This weekend I made a big pot of good old chicken noodle soup in the slow cooker. And, since organic apples were on sale, I made a batch of applesauce. Although most of it is in the freezer right now, I predict it will be gone by the end of the week. My kids love it.

  41. jen says:

    I am just getting ready to make blueberry muffins from scratch. Love ‘em and blueberry season around these parts is just about over… so gotta make ‘em while I can.

    Then I think I’ll go play around in the scrap bin!

  42. Jennifer says:

    Ground turkey and lentil meatloaf loaded with caramelized onions, grated yellow squash, and wilted swiss chard!

  43. Oooh, apple crisp from Grandma Kitty’s apple crisp recipe! And my family had a picnic in the living room floor tonight with various fruits and veggies and an assortment of dipping sauces: natural PB mixed w/ honey and cream, baby food peaches, baby food apple-cherry sauce, and chocolate syrup! Plus, as always tons of sunsweet cherry tomatoes from our garden and the last two cukes from our little summer garden!

  44. meg says:

    there is a fair in my town and I plan on eating my fair share of fried dough and then some.

  45. Meghan says:

    I’m planning on making pumpkin scones with maple icing :)

    And I love the new site design!!

  46. Deborah Ocasio says:

    I am am making for the first time a Puerto Rican Favorite. Flan . My abuela used to make it all the time along with Rice Pudding for Christmas.

  47. kristi says:

    Gianduia, cherry granola, and roasted tomatoes.

  48. Holly says:

    Well it’s still incredibly hot here in the South East, and a trip to the zoo resulted in Krispy Kreme’s for breakfast Sunday. Yum yum

  49. Janet says:

    I’m going to make Banana Walnut muffins with caramel flavored frosting.

  50. Nancy says:

    My better half is going to make tilapia with ginger and chile. I love it! I don’t cook–I do the dishes! I’m banned from cooking-lol. I’m a chronic burner…I call it charbroiling!!!

  51. bashtree says:

    Mmmmmm ‘mexican pizza’ from La Casita down the street. Authentic ingredients, though the assembly might not be as authentic… nothing beats it!

  52. Liz B says:

    My sister is coming home for her birthday and we are doing turkey breast the first night and turkey stew the second, some of our favorite meals. To top it off, our all-time favorite cake that no one else in the world makes or likes: Chocolate Chip Cake from the Betty Crocker Cookbook. Mmm, drooling a little. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway, and looking forward to the scrap busting!

  53. Aimee says:

    I love the new look! I will have to take a good look at my scrap bin… We’re going in to Boston today and getting canolis from the world’s best Italian bakery!

  54. Deborah says:

    It has done nothing but rain here for over a week, and the temp has started dropping. I’m going to fix ratatouillie (sp?) and serve it with jasmine rice. Yummy. I recently moved, and haven’t got my sewing machine set up yet, so no tutorials are in my future for a month or so.

  55. charlie says:

    P.S. I love the “New Look”

  56. charlie says:

    I just put together a batch of Calico Beans and tomorrow I will be making a big kettle of Broccoli and Cheese Soup. I will freeze some for later. When the Fall weather starts there is nothing better than a bowl of homemade soup. While the soup is simmering I plan to make a pan of apple crisp to share with my neighbor. It goes great with vanilla ice cream……..yum!

  57. Sara says:

    I am totally looking forward to October now!

    For dinner I plan on fixing fresh asparagus, corn on the cob and roasted tomatoes for a really fun veggie meal…

  58. Tracey says:

    Oh i’m so looking forward to scrap busters month! I have a whole bucket full of scraps and some serious lack of motivation lately, that needs to be kicked into over drive!

    We are heading to a local farm tomorrow for some apple picking – I forsee pies and apple crisp in my future tomorrow afternoon!!

  59. Erin says:

    I am making some home made sausage!

  60. Lacey says:

    I plan on making chocolate fondant. I would love to say that I made the recipe up myself, but sadly I did not. It is from a Gordon Ramsay cook book. It is a personal sized chocolate desert that is warm cake on the outside and gooey chocolate on the inside!

  61. Ticia says:

    I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with for scrap busters.

  62. Brooke Marsh says:

    YAY for scraps!! I have a basket full of them and now this will give me the motivation I need to actually DO something with them.

    This weekend I’m baking Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread…mmmmmm…..

  63. Renee says:

    There is a whole lot of birthday cake and cake baking in general this weekend. Hope everyone has great parties (a cake always means a party in your mouth).

  64. Carrie says:

    I am savoring the last warm days that I get by eating my mom’s “poor man’s pie.” Basically jello and cool whip mix together in a graham cracker crust. Yummmmmm! And refreshing. I’m sad to see summer go…

  65. Christine Bolin says:

    I’m thinking about making some oatmeal raisin cookies.

  66. Tiffany says:

    I plan on making raw fudge cookies… so good for you but every bite causes a moan of pleasure… makes you feel like it must be sinful.

  67. Andrea says:

    I love the new design of the site, I miss the links to the photo pools on the right though! We started our weekend off with homemade butter and baking powder biscuits. Yum!

  68. Rebecca says:

    I plan on having a “at home date” with my hubby after the kids go to bed tomorrow night – french onion soup, mozza sticks, and sausage rolls. Yummy throw-in the oven appy’s :)

  69. Kristin Beckwith says:

    Sushi and maybe even some green tea ice cream, yum!

  70. Deb says:

    Ooh, Scrapbusters, what fun! I might even try and post something, why not! I plan on making La Fuji Mama’s peanut butter and chocolate patty cakes, I’m havng some girlfriends for morning tea and have been looking for an excuse to indulge in these – YUM!

  71. Jon says:

    I love the site’s new flow. It’s easier on the eyes and easier to navigate. Unfortunately, it makes it easier to shop, too!

    I’m baking pecan chocolate chip cookies to send to my sister-in-law as a thank-you for her donation to my American Cancer Society Relay for Life team–THE CANCER KICKIN’ ANGELS.

    http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY09CA?px=8284014&pg=personal&fr_id=13739

  72. Shelley C says:

    It has gotten cold so quickly around here! I plan on making a crockpot full of homemade baked beans…I have perfected my recipe over many years and have one that we finally think is perfect! A side of coleslaw, hotdogs, and ployes (acadian buckwheat crepes). A yummy dinner for a chilly day….

  73. Donna Samuelson says:

    We had some delicious biscuits last night, AND I got all of my scraps organized so I can try out all of the great new ideas you all have! I am not a very experienced sew/crafter but I love trying!

  74. AllieK says:

    AWESOME new look…..Looking forward to scrap busters!!!

  75. Beatrix says:

    I really have to put my thinking cap on now. Need to come up with another scrappy project!
    We are having Chili Lime chicken tonight! Yummy!!!

  76. Laurie says:

    I think I am going to make a nice big pot of chili since the air is getting crisp.

  77. kelli says:

    Italian sausage with onions and chard. Yum!

  78. Beth Talmage says:

    Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini. (Noticing a pattern here?) We’ll be trying out a recipe for a chocolate cake with zucchini that I am assured is delicious and we’ll be indulging in a fave from my teen years: fried zucchini. This will reduce the guilt about the zucchini I am afraid will go to waste and inspire guilt about my cholesterol levels.

  79. Leah says:

    I love the idea of Scrap Busters month! Meanwhile, though, I am making Italian meatloaf today for my family–I bought a little more meat than I thought, so it will be a BIG meatloaf that should last:-)

  80. Julia M. in MI says:

    I made Manicotti with homemade garlic bread last night. We will be eating the leftovers on Sunday, too. It’s awesome fresh, but it is also one of those dishes that is great reheated.

  81. Susan W says:

    A yummy tomatoe tart with philo dough, butter and parmesan.
    and chicken pot pie with veges from farmers market. and fresh peaches.

  82. Sharon says:

    French Toast! Yummm!

  83. Elise says:

    I am planning on making some simple aprons and decorating some towels for my sister to put in her shop.

    Elise

  84. I plan on making a Greek Salad — kalamata olives and tomatoes — mmmm.

  85. Kaye says:

    I am so excited about Scrap Busters Month. I have a huge toy box full of scraps of all sizes.

    Sunday I think I will make a yummy Pork Roast and fried apples on the side. Yum Yum.

  86. Eliane T. says:

    Chocolate cake! Yummy ^^

  87. Amy says:

    I plan on spending the morning with a White Chocolate Peppermint Mocha…my mouth waters just thinking about it!! hehehe

  88. sofie says:

    This weekend will be all about chicken enchiladas and lots and lots (I mean LOTS) of watermelon.

  89. angie says:

    I plan to cook a desert –from a new to me cookbook I bought at the Library book sale 99% fat free appetizers and deserts. And sew a new quilt top using a fruit of the spirit “crossword” style pattern. Hope I get to do what I plan & win FFF. Angie

  90. robin says:

    I am going to be visiting my parents this weekend, so my dad will be doing the cooking. There’s no telling what yummy concoction he’ll make!

  91. Sivje says:

    Fried Green Tomatoes! Our tomato plants gave and gave the most delicious red tomatoes all summer. And they still loaded with green tomatoes now, which seem to have no interest in ripening. So, dredged in egg and breadcrumbs and then fried, topped with Gorgonzola dressing, they are mouthwateringly perfect!

  92. bobbie says:

    I have no idea what we’ll be eating this weekend and I’m ok with that.

  93. Kristin says:

    love the new look! We are having a birthday party, with all sorts of yummy goodness: caramel corn, homemade clam chowder, and homemade rolls!

  94. quenna says:

    Great idea :) We will be dining on chicken curry and asian spring rolls.

  95. Laura says:

    Mexican Pork Stew and baked corn! Thanks for the chance to win!

  96. ktquilts4fun says:

    I just can’t wait!!!

  97. Vintagefern says:

    I am making buttermilk pancakes and smoothies!

  98. Elizabeth says:

    Carrot cake with penuche frosting for my husband’s birthday

  99. Jenna A. says:

    i haven’t yet collected much in the way of scraps, but I am excited to get some new ideas on what to do with what I have :) Yay srap-Busters!
    I know it’s no where near winter, but I plan on enjoying a fabulous warm winter lemon cake. I got the recipe from a Kraft foods magazine and it’s been a favorite ever since!

  100. Kate says:

    This weekend is autumn/apple themed. Apple cider brined pork roast, apple stuffing, applesauce, roasted root vegetables, I am still trying to decide on a dessert. Maybe an apple tart?

  101. Leslie says:

    This weekend’s menu – I have plans to make turkey breast with feta & spinach stuffing. My daughter and I have been talking about making some kind of new cake so I’m thinking about a recipe that’s lying around in an old MS Living magazine for dark chocolate grand marnier bundt cake. Sounds tempting!

  102. MamaBee says:

    Tomatoes and basil, perhaps with a little fresh french bread and/or mozzarella. Seems like all I’m eating lately, and I don’t mind a bit!

    Add me to the list of people excited for stashbusters!

  103. jackie says:

    i’m looking forward to navajo tacos! love the new site…

  104. Joey says:

    Tomorrow night we are having a family dinner which will consist of spaghetti, salad and bread. The dessert will be a b-day cake for my great nephew who is turning 1.

  105. Elizabeth says:

    Love the scrap contest idea!
    Finally, we’ve found a turkey small enough to fit in our tiny fridge…so we’re cooking that this weekend, with stuffing and fresh vegetables that I’ll pick up at the farmer’s market tomorrow morning.

  106. I’m making Millionaire’s Shortbread for my husband’s birthday. It is a chocolate-y, shortbread-y, caramel delight!

  107. Jess says:

    I am making bite size brownies for my mom. My mom has NEVER asked me to make something specific for her, but she is in love with these silly bite size brownies I made on a whim that turned out wonderful. So tomorrow morning I will be making mint, peanut butter, and caramel (not all together!!) bite size brownies for my mom to take with her to a game night with her friends.

  108. oooh i wonder if i can figure out something good to sew with scraps! as for something good to eat, it’s going to be soooooo hot we won’t feel like eating. perhaps gazpacho?

  109. Jacklyn H says:

    We’re looking to whip up another batch of this new granola recipe that I found – it only take 7 minutes in the oven and a few minutes on the stove and is super yummy! :)

  110. Jody says:

    The scrapbusters contest sounds like so much fun. I’ll have to put my thinking cap on and see if I can come up with something to enter. I made apple pie today. We had company this past week so I’m really hoping that we will have enough leftovers so that I don’t have to cook much this weekend.

  111. Cindy says:

    I am getting a cold so I made homemade chicken soup tonight–I hope it works!

  112. Kimberly says:

    I’m planning to eat yummy, nostalgic treats prepared by the sweet mother of a college roommate. My friends are having a long-overdue reunion this weekend, and I cannot wait!

    We are planning a fish fry! com’on over, you can bring a nice dessert!

  114. jm says:

    Making and eating homemade pizza here!

  115. Colleen says:

    We made peach jam last weekend, so with the leftover peaches, I’ll be making a peach and blueberry pie with an oatmeal crumble topping. I’m looking forward to the ideas you’ll have in October!

  116. Tania says:

    In celebration of fall coming up this week we are making some pumpkin waffles with warm maple syrup. Yum!

  117. We had hamburgers and onion rings from a local restaurant!! They were delicious….I can never get mine tasting as good as they are from a restaurant!!

  118. Amy says:

    Love the way the site is looking!

    Since my family is recovering from the H1N1 virus – this weekend we will be cooking my Grandmother’s “No Fail-Get Better” Soup. (It beter work) ;)

  119. Virginia S says:

    Fun ideas! I never know what to do with all of those odds and ends.

    I plan to make frozen pizza this weekend! Busy work schedules for the hubby and lots of errands outside the home will make for slim cooking opportunities. Not cutsie or fall-ish or creative this weekend, but hey, just being honest. :)

  120. Krista says:

    Tomorrow night I’m making a delicious “apple pie cake”. This is basically a springform pan full of apple slices with a crust on the bottom and a flour/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture on top of the apples. It’s an organic apple bonanza up here in B.C.!

  121. Faye says:

    Curried lentils!

  122. Whistlepea says:

    I made meatless sweet and sour meatballs this evening and since I’ve been eating sandwiches and cereal for dinner for weeks they were delicious!

    Ribs, garden fresh kale and cole slaw, and…birthday cake !

  127. Cristina says:

    Pumpkin pancakes for breakfast Sunday – getting a head start on Fall!!

  128. Regina says:

    Kickin’ cajun bean soup! Love that crock pot and a crisp nearly-fall day for hearty warm soup!!! (plus it leaves more time for sewing!)

  129. Naomi says:

    Sultana cake with almonds on top. We’re having friends for ‘afternoon tea’.

  130. Jennifer says:

    I’ll be making some French Onion Soup! YUM!

  131. Kris says:

    Brownies!

  132. Sandy H. says:

    The new look is great!

    This weekend I am cooking up a slew of plum kuchen thanks to the generous gift of ripe plums from a neighbor’s tree. It freezes well and makes my husband happy!

  133. Lynne says:

    Tomorrow is my day to journey to the local farmer’s market. I am hoping to find eggplant and zucchini to go with my home grown tomatoes so that I can make ratatouille to have with pasta. Oh, and lots of garlic!

  134. Bethany says:

    Yum now you have me hungry. I was planning on a lasagna tomorrow night…a fun family favorite, not unique but fun. I just made the other fun family fav…marinate chicken in italian dressing then put into pan smother with pepper jack and bake 45 minutes…mmmmmmmmm!!!

  135. Ellena Oglesby says:

    We are planning to cook on the grill since it is still warm here but not hot, I will marinate some chicken breast to cook and cook some sweet potatos on the grill.
    Scrap busters sounds fun, making plans

    Tibetan red lentil soup with naan, because it’s nice and cool here on the coast!

    I’m going to make kettle corn. We found the most delicious recipe recently!

  138. Lorrie says:

    Fun new look! I’m so looking forward to scrapbusters month! This weekend I’m going to make some eggplant caviar and fougasse (olive bread). The family is getting together to celebrate 3 September birthdays and I’ll also be eating some homemade cake.

    Lorrie

  139. christine says:

    I like the new look. I’m thinking about making oatmeal cookies this weekend.

  140. Tina C. says:

    roast chicken!!! finally it is cool enough to cook that again. also, something with all the eggplants ripening in the garden.

  141. Mary says:

    Mmmm…I am going to make simple baked custard with nutmeg for my mom who just had surgery. The hospital no longer offers custard (her favourite part of the hospital stay), so I’m stepping in.

  142. Steph W says:

    Well – it’s my husband’s birthday. We’re vegetarians, but every year for his bday he takes a break and gets hot dogs. So that’s the gourmet meal I’ll be making! Hot dogs, chips and beer! But made with love.

    I’m in the process of making a nice veggie noodle soup and homemade whole wheat bread and I hope to make a nice roast and mashed potatoes and maybe pumpkin bread for Saturday or Sunday if the weather cools a tiny bit more!

  183. Lisa D says:

    We’re going out to a Bohemian restaurant tonight. They serve Czech food. I love their goulash and unique soups.

    Lot’s of eating out this weekend! Tonight we’re attending a wedding rehearsal; the dinner afterwards will be at our favorite Mexican restaurant. Tomorrow is a friend’s surprise birthday party at Buca di Beppo, and I’m excited because I’ve never been to one. Sunday is the wedding, and I really don’t know what they’re serving. Worries me a little, because I’m in the middle of a 21-day vegan challenge :)

    Corned beef hash and corn bread though not together.

  197. beccy says:

    I love the scrapbuster idea – I need a few tips to shrink the mountain! This weekend we will be finding new and exciting ways of eating the glut of courgettes, especially since we’ve run out of people to give them to. Frittata anyone?

I will be attempting homemade pasta noddles as well, but that may be a bust and so we have store bought on hand. I am also attemting low cal cannolis from this months issue of cooking light.

  222. Shari says:

    Weekends usually mean soccer games and this weeks games will take us out of town. The treat for the non-soccer playing family members is at least one decent meal. The choice for tonight will be PF Chang—not bad for a soccer mom!

  223. bec says:

    something with zucchini and cucumbers and tomatoes and summer squash. the garden is starting to slow down, but just barely.

  224. Jenna says:

  251. Megan Kinyon says:

  254. April says:

    I’m in about my fourth month of sewing so I’ve just started accumulating a scrap pile that’s got me scratching my head with ideas for scrap projects. I’m so glad you’re doing scrap sewing month just in time!

    I’m not necessarily making anything great this weekend, but a friend and I are going to drive to Temecula tomorrow and hit the farmers market. We’re going to pick up some bread, cheese and fruit then head to one of the wineries and buy a bottle of champagne. Ooh la la! It may not be real cooking, but it’s what I’m looking forward to most this weekend!

  255. Natalie says:

    Oh how I LOVE food. I am most looking forward to going to the nearby crepe place on Saturday morning and getting a Nutella filled crepe.

  259. Christy says:

    Gonna get hubbie to take me out for some Italian. Am thinking about cooking chicken cream cheese puffs.

  260. Jill says:

    I’ve pad thai on the brain. So many delicious recipes floating around blogs and recipe sites…

  261. Scraps :) I’ll see what I can come up with. You know, scraps, like leftovers can oftentimes be better when revisited. Mixed into a nice smorgasbord of flavors and aromas that have had time to infuse the food. In my fridge I have some ham and black eye peas. With a little broth and some carrots, this will become a wonderful ham and bean soup. Too bad the heat came back full force ;)

  262. Megan says:

    I plan on eating chicken tortilla soup this weekend! Yum!

    And I could totally use some suggestions to bust my scraps.

  263. Kadybug says:

    Thank you for the heads up on the contest! I am putting on my thinking hat now.

    This weekend I am making a pot roast (stew) with potatoes, onions. carrots, peas, celery, and a ton of spices. My mom’s recipe for baking soda biscuits. And a homemade apple pie to end the dinner. It is getting so chilly here that I thought I needed to break out a hearty fall recipe. :)

  264. wintor says:

    Scrap busting? I let my daughter use them to make baby toys/plushes/gifts!

    This Sunday is my birthday and i’ve been wanting to make some rice pudding with dried apricots and ginger thrown in…non-desserty? maybe a grilled salmon pasta bowl type thing :)

  265. Dacia says:

    mmm, I love to cook, and weekends are a great time for me to cook up something wonderful. My weekend cooking plans are homemade deep dish pizza tonight. Saturday, homemade gnocchi with fresh pesto (utilizing that basil from my garden!) with a delicious caprese salad (you gotta LOVE fresh mozzarella, home grown tomatoes and fresh basil layered together and seasoned with balsamic, olive oil and s+p! YUM!) Then Sunday I am cooking up a new recipe for my celiac sis-in-law GLUTEN FREE Vanilla Cupcakes! (it’s been so long since she’s had a baked good!) I am so excited! Here’s to a yummy weekend!

  275. Michelle says:

    I really like the linen look, and thanks for the push to get off my rear and make that tutorial I’ve been thinking of doing for months and months now…

    Oh, and what I’ll be cooking? Maybe napa cabbage chicken salad, since it’s going to be 103 degrees all weekend! No oven or stove for me!

  289. Grand dad says:

    We will be happily eating whatever darling son-in-law cooks, he grills a lot so maybe we will be lucky and have sweet Italian sausage.Does making gift wrapping out of fat quarters count as scrap busting?

  290. Kerneknop says:

    I’m right in the middle of baking an apple tart with merengues lid – my mum came by earlier today with a huge bag of apples, so tart, chutney and jam it is ;-) Happy weekend to everyone…

  291. Cindy Rutledge says:

    I’m making chicken enchiladas with homeade enchilada sauce and Flan. Yummy!

  292. Jennifer says:

    I’m planning on cooking steaks with my husband!

  293. colleen says:

    I’m making fried chicken sandwiches with spicy cabbage slaw…..delicious recipe from the San Francisco Chronicle a few years back (you can find it on the website)

  294. Jill G says:

    I am going to a Baseball game tonight so I will definatly be eatting a hotdog!!! I LOVE hotdogs at baseball games. ;)

  295. Ellen says:

    A rainy weekend is saying Apple Crisp ala mode! Can’t wait to see all the scrapbusting ideas!

  296. Katie says:

    Salsa Verde enchiladas with Spanish-style brown rice and homemade tortilla chips. Penguin is on this weekend’s sewing menu.

  297. Ruth says:

    I dunno if it counts as this weekend, but at work we have a pool of people who rotate bringing in a baked treat on Friday morning to celebrate the end of the work week. This morning we are having blueberry coffee cake. Yum!

  298. Hurray! I can’t wait to see all the scrap buster ideas. We are making Orange Zucchini Bread today and then Pumpkin Patch Muffins tomorrow. Yum!

  299. Nicole says:

    I’m planning to bake and eat some chocolate chip cookies-DD’s favorite. Perfect activity for a toddler on a rainy day! :)

  300. amy says:

    I am going to make Tamale Pie and continue to eat on the pecan pie I made!

  301. Kate says:

    We have a new baby due in early November so I’ll be prep cooking most of the weekend: pumpkin sage pasta, garlic pasta, sweet potato black bean enchiladas, carrot soup, samosas, etc… All the good things that come from the freezer when there isn’t a spare hand or a spare minute. And I’ll be roasting tomatoes from the garden with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to put in the freezer as well. Better get started!

  302. alison says:

    Love the new look! This morning I made brownies that I expect will be gone by the time I get home from work. This weekend I’m going to make banana cake with brown sugar icing. I think I’ll also make scalloped potatoes since the weather is turning cooler here.

  303. perches says:

    We’re going apple-picking this weekend, with many friends and a big potluck dinner afterward. I’m looking forward to making apple cobblers, cake baked with apple slices, and baby apple puree. Yay for apple harvest season!

  304. kimmer says:

    Tonight’s menu is nachos with a tomato/onion/avocado salad and a cold glass of limeade. Tomorrow night looks like a good night for grilling… chicken breast with roasted potatoes? Sunday we’ll be eating “fair food” and riding the carousel.
    Thanks for the giveaway! Can’t wait to see what the scrap busters are!

  305. Liz says:

    My hubby is taking me out to dinner at a fabulous Asian Bistro tomorrow night. I can.not. wait to fill up on sushi!

  306. Sara says:

    Hmm, all of my scrap uses are so conventional…maybe I’ll think of a new one this month.

    I’m on the don’t-eat-anything-exciting diet, so this weekend it’s hardboiled eggs, Wasa crackers, and sliced apples for pretty much every meal. Might make an apple pie for the family, though!

  307. Suzette says:

    Well, corn came in the CSA box yesterday so we will have that tonight while it is fresh. Then, who knows, a little Spanakopita with our apples and honey this weekend.

  308. Tina says:

    Scrap buster tutorials…..hmmm…….I wonder what I can come up with.

    I am making blueberry pie this weekend! I meant to make it last weekend, but that didn’t happen with birthday celebrations and other things. I’m using the recipe that Cook’s Illustrated had in one of their mags last year. It uses vodka in the crust! And partial fresh fruit, and partially jam that you make which cuts down on that watery quality that blueberry pie can tend to have. I can’t wait. Yummy!

  309. amanda says:

    I’m getting Thai takeout to nosh on with my mom!

  310. Bethany says:

    What I meant to say is they’re my daughter’s favorite…we’re having them for her birthday.

    Man, you’d think it was Monday or something :P

  311. Bethany says:

    mmm…ribs…for my daughter’s favorite…and I like them a lot too!

  312. Becca says:

    My mom and I are heading up to the apple orchards in Oak Glen this weekend and will be canning away on Saturday the idea is Apple Butter and Apple Sauce. I love homemade Apple Sauce… I love that there are still actual chunks of apple and that you can add in all the cinnamon your little heart desires… but most of all I love how when you add it to a little puff pastry you have an instant apple turnover. YUM.

  313. Ashley Ann says:

    I want to have a breakfast feast: biscuits and gravy, bacon, pancakes, hashbrowns. Ok, I might have to cut a thing or two from the feast list. :D

  314. Nellie says:

    I’ll be making apple pie with a gingerbread crust, with apples from our yard.

  315. Jenny says:

    We plan to make stuff from the lovely Fall apples that we have! Maybe a rustic tart. We also plan to celebrate Rosh Hashanah this weekend and make some challah bread http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challah Oh so yummy!

    :) So excited about scrap busting!!!!

    Jenny

  316. katie says:

    So looking forward to scrap busters month!

    I’m going to pull out the slow cooker and have some shredded beef chimis loaded with all the toppings. Yum!

  317. Jenny says:

    I’ll be making some hearty lentil soup and a loaf of bread to serve alongside. Its really yummy!

  318. Jessica C says:

    Pear Cake! There is a chill in the air here and that means fall! So from now until Winter we will be eating apples, pears, squash, and pumpkins! I can’t wait

  319. Annika says:

    This weekend, like most weekends, I’ll be roasting a chicken for my husband. I like to cut the chicken in half (since he’s the only family member who eats fowl) and freeze half for later in the week. I heat the oven to 425-450 with my big cast iron skillet on the rack. While that’s happening I rub the chicken with sea salt, black pepper, olive oil, and lemon juice, and place rosemary on top. When the oven’s hot, the bird goes into the pan along with some peeled cloves of garlic. 20-30 minutes (about 45 for a whole bird) and dinner is ready. Just add a vegetable and/or potatoes.

  320. Beth says:

    We’re having a dinner party with some old friends! Spaghetti squash noodles and alfredo sauce is on the menu!

  321. Nani says:

    we always love tacos in our house!

  322. Melissa says:

    I’ll be making chicken divan, my hubby’s favorite.

  323. judi says:

    It’s green chile night at our house!! I have so many good scrap buster projects but my camera is missing its cord so posting pictures would be pretty difficult. Maybe I can get my husband to post them with his blackberry.

  324. Sara says:

    I am taking a baking class, and we will be learning to make the perfect pie!

  325. Nani says:

    tacos are always a big hit in our house!

  326. amy says:

    Tomorrow is my birthday so I plan on having some chocolate peanut butter cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting–cupcakes would be good, too! I left the recipe out on the counter……
    Looking forward to scrap busting! Boy, do I have scraps!!

  327. Maya says:

    I plan on making two dishes. One is Apple Cider Brussels Sprouts and the other is Crispy Sesame Kale. I have decided to try these new recipes on veggies I would otherwise not eat.

  328. Misha says:

    We are taking our little ones to a local amusement park this weekend and will be having delicious cheese covered fries and probably funnel cakes as well! Yum! I like the new look, lovely!

  329. wendy says:

    I’m liking the new look… wtg!
    And can’t wait for scrap month, too.

    I’m making creme brulee tomorrow, and some roasted yam soup. Oh, how I love fall cooking!

  330. Mindy says:

    I plan to make homemade potato bread, and possibly some cinnamon rolls since this dough makes a huge amount. Yummy!

  331. Emily S says:

    My mom is visiting to help with my new baby, and she always cooks us up some deliciousness. Hopefully she’ll be making us some pesto salmon – yummy!

  332. Margaret says:

    How fun! I’m planning to make some fresh pizza dough, to be topped by my husband’s wonderful concoctions of homegrown veggies and homemade pesto!

  333. Johanna says:

    I loved the old look and I love the new look! And I am looking forward to a lot of new things to do with scraps, there are always so many of them :)
    Tonight I will make a quiche, only it won’t be with meat but with a lot of vegetables (so that everyone arround here including vegetarians can enjoy it!)

  334. N. Mali says:

    I love the new look! I’m not too creative to think of something original for my scraps, but I’ll give it a whirl. I’m 40+ weeks pregnant, just waiting for this kid to arrive, so my plan is to make a big batch of spaghetti sauce and some freezer meals from that – lasagna, stuffed shells, etc.

  335. Jackie Davis says:

    I thought this was a new look! (i usually just read the RSS feed which is text only). LOVE IT!

    I feel challeged to do a scap thingy!

    On Sunday, we’re going to a football get together and I am taking macaroni & cheese and chocolate chip cookies. As for the meals, not sure yet!

    *HUGS*
    Jackie

    I am having friends over for oven-fried green tomato BLT’s, tomato basil pie, and lemon-orange pound cake. Together, we are saying goodbye to summer and making our wishes for fall.

  340. Shanti says:

    The fall produce started showing up in my Farmer’s Market this week, so I plan to have my first baked winter squash one day and brussels sprouts another.

  341. Lea-Ann says:

    I can’t wait for Scrap Busters Month! I’ve got an idea I’ve been playing around with! Maybe I can finally get it done!
    I am going to make parmesan crusted chicken with a shallot wine sauce. Well, I’m planning on that, but if I get lazy, I’m thinking Olive Garden might hit the spot!

  342. Tammy says:

    Enjoying the new look! :)

    I am planning on making applesauce this weekend! Yummy! I hope to get quite a bit put up!

  343. Tina says:

  344. Rachel says:

This sunday we are having a brunch so I was going to make some yummy quiches– one will be a classic broccoli with swiss cheese, but the other I’m making with smoked sausage, red and green peppers, red onion and a little cheddar cheese. Can I “yum” my own recipe?

  388. I’m planning on eating take-out …. again! We are renovating our kitchen, and we’re now going on 5 weeks without water. Yikes. There’s no end in sight, either, so I’m going to have to start getting used to the take-out!
    (If you could see my kitchen, you would see how silly this is, by the way. It’s about 4 feet by 8 feet. Tiny! I don’t know what it taking so long!)

    Baked spinach tortellini! I cook the tortellini until almost done and mix it with a jar of the super chunky garden vegetable spaghetti sauce.
    I also mix in chopped broccoli and frozen vegetarian crumbles which resemble hamburger. Top with 6 cheese Italian blend and bake it til the cheese is brown. It’s all one pot, easy, fast and gives my family a load of vegetables!

  402. Dot says:

    Making pasta with shrimp & pesto (using last of basil in my herb garden pots). New look is quite the change—look forward to the tour when finished.

  438. Heather B says:

    It’s gotten a bit cooler here, so I plan on making black bean soup for this evening with a tortilla pie. Something warm, cozy, simple & yummy!

  439. Lee says:

    This weekend we will be eating some homemade chili with rice and cheddar cheese sprinkled on top (if i remember to get the meat out of the freezer!) Maybe homemade buttermilk biscuits if I have the time. Since our BBQ/Grilling days are probably numbered a couple of steaks sauteed mushrooms, roasted potatoes & a veggie will be consumed too! umm umm!
    look forward to readying the stash buster ideas, i could use a few.

  440. Kelli says:

    First off–LOVE the new look! I came over yesterday to post something in the forums and thought WOW!!! As far as delicious eating goes–I got some peaches and apples on sale (gotta love that in between season time) and was thinking about making some fried pies of each!

  441. Sally says:

    Oh, I can’t wait to see all the tutorials! I may even have to try my hand at doing one.

    Love the new digs!

  442. Tina says:

    Pear Strudel! I have a basket of pears picked from a friend’s tree waiting at home to be turned into a delicious strudel and maybe while I’m at it I can can a few jars as well.

    White Chocolate Ice Cream from “The Perfect Scoop.” Mmmmmmmm….

  444. Robin says:

  445. susie says:

    Hi. We’re going to eat an oven pancake with blackberries and bananas or peaches on it for Saturday breakfast. Then we’re heading out to the farmer’s market to bag some veggies to grill, and I’m going to put basil butter on those. On Sunday, I’ll probably make chicken and dumplings. Have a lovely weekend!

  449. Tracy M says:

    Scrap month sounds like fun! As for the something delicious to eat this weekend, my girlfriends and I are getting together to try our hand at making Bakerella’s cake pops http://bakerella.blogspot.com/search/label/cake%20pops while our husbands spend a guy’s night out playing frisbee golf.

  450. Kolleen says:

    We’re going to try Pioneer Woman’s caramel apple cinnamon rolls! The local orchard is open, it’s Homecoming and we finally have summer weather! But these sound so yummy, we’re going to whip up a pot of chili to serve with them (sound like school lunch to anyone?.

  451. Christine says:

    We are having a lot of eggplant in the garden ripen up..finally. I’m going to roast some and make a quiche with some of it.

  452. Shannah says:

    Yay! It’s FFF again!

    This weekend I plan to go to a local all-vegan restaurant. I’m not vegan, only vegetarian, but it is sooo good! I will, for sure, have a chocolate cupcake there. ;)

    I really like the new look (ready for the tour!), and can’t wait to see everyone’s tutorials.

  453. Java Jane says:

    New cooking method: there is a turkey breast in my slow cooker. The plan is to have panani sandwiches with sliced turkey, tomato, cheese and red onion.

    Thanks again for letting us all know about IBOL–reading the updates on Art’s blog have brought great joy to my life. It is wonderful how the sewing and knitting community have joined hands to promote peace.

  458. sequink says:

  462. Cecily says:

    I’ve been toying around with weekend dessert ideas, and I am very tempted to make macaroons dipped in chocolate.

  473. Well, this weekend I’m sworn to my diet, but last weekend, we munched on mini tacos while watching the True Blood finale, followed up by “Not Yo Mama’s Banana Pudding” (Paula Deen recipe) for dessert. It was pretty fantastic.

  474. katie says:

    this is such a great idea! Who doesn’t have a million scraps laying around!?!

  475. Stacy says:

    I’m so excited about scrap busters month. I seem to have more scraps hanging about than I used to!

    This weekend will probably see us having some yummy chicken quesadillas – making the shells at home makes them extra good. For dessert, it will probably be peach cobbler or brownies. It depends on how much I’m craving chocolate that day. :)

  476. Ann says:

    I am going to make Michelle Obama’s recipe for apple cobbler with apples from a neighbor’s tree. My husband’s response after I made it the first time was “Wow!” It’s that good.

  477. Dawn G says:

    I’m so excited for Scrap Busters month. I haven’t created too many tutorials, but I’m really hoping I can come up with one. First I have to think of something!

    It’s just starting to get Fall-ish around here, so this weekend I’m hoping to make a big pot of chili and the Corn Bread from Bread Baker’s Apprentice to go with it. (I’m way behind on The Bread Baker’s Apprentice Challenge.)

  484. Water Works says:

    This is my weekend to replenish the homemade snacks! Muffins, granola bars, and cookies for lunchboxes. I love making them myself and knowing what’s going inside my kids’ bellies.

    What’s so delicious about this weekend? That I won’t be cooking AT ALL! Friday will bring a planned nice dinner out, and Saturday is the final outdoor craft/music/food fest that my city has for the year.

    OK, maybe I’ll throw a little something in the oven on Sunday. We’ll see.

    Everything’s looking very smart round here! This weekend I’ll be making pork and apple casserole with potato-and-swede mash for me, my husband and our baby. She loves the sweet and savoury tastes in this meal, just like her mum! That reminds me to go get the pork out of the freezer…

  504. Bethany says:

    We hope to be eating calzones for dinner tonight. My daughter has been asking for them for a couple of weeks, but our oven has been broken and was just replaced this week. Thanks for the great giveaway. And I look forward to the Scrap Buster month.

    I can’t wait to see the entries for the contest! It will be great to learn more ideas to use up my scraps…except for the ones I am saving to do a scrap quilt..

    This weekend, we’re likely to eat a lot of take-out, as we’ll be cooking all weekend, but not to eat now–we’re canning corn relish, tomato sauce, salsa, ketchup, and pears. It’s crunch time, for those of us who eat locally.

  516. Kaye Prince says:

    Since tomorrow is Rosh Hashanah there will be lots of good things to eat. I am not Jewish, but my boyfriend is and so we’re heading to his parents place for some good eats!

    tonight I’m making overnight cinnamon rolls…yum :)

    This whole week has been delicious cooking, Monday it was peanut butter fudge in my mother in law’s recipe. Tues was Tapioca Pudding. Wednesday was homemade cheese enchilada’s, Thursday was 2 kinds of bread, my normal GF bread and GF raisin bread (in which I accidentally added orange essence instead of vanilla and it was a delicious mistake). This weekend we’re having a cookout at a friends house and they’ve requested my egg rolls. This means I need to get to dicing and chopping and get about 150 egg rolls made for them to fry up!

  546. Lisa McKelvey says:

Oh, I know, I am making Cream Cheese Potato Soup on Saturday.

  554. katie says:

    I’m really bad about buying tofu, meaning to eat it, and then it sits in my fridge for ages and I eventually have to toss it. I’m on a quest to actually use it this weekend- I think I’ll prepare it with eggplant and attempt an Asian-garlic sauce to go with. Great new look!

  555. Rachael says:

    Oooooh scraps, my scrap bin is overflowing, I can’t wait!

  565. I so need to think of something to get shot of these bags of scraps. and we are having left-overs (food scraps!) for dinner, last nights pasta mixed with some spinach and onion, then add to 6 eggs and a dash of milk, bake like a quiche until cooked all through – don’t knock it until you try it.

    Love the new look.
    Chorizo sausage sliced, tin of 4 bean mix, red onion, tin of tomatoes, crushed garlic to taste. Cook onion, garlic and sausage, add beans and tomato and cook until liquid reduces.
    Serve with crusty bread, a great Saturday lunch.

    Ooooh!! Scrapbusters month! I’m loving it! Maybe I can get my act together and post something fabulous…

    And I plan to make delicious Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. mmm…no better way to kick off the fall season.

    The new look is fab and it’s easier to find things. Curious as to what everybody is going to make with their scraps too.

    I’m going to make something called an impossible pie. When it’s baked the mixture forms a pastry shell, egg custard filling and coconut topping but it’s all mixed up together in the same bowl! It’s a recipe that my mum found. Neither of us has cooked it yet. It might be nice or it might be a flop-who knows? I will show it, and the recipe on my blog when it’s made;-) Happy cooking/eating everybody. x

    It’s fall and the weather is already getting quite chilly here. We’ll be enjoying some roasted rosemary beets to help warm us up this weekend!

    Really liking all the newness so far – can’t wait to see it all!

    Great new look! I’m planning on pancakes with fresh strawberies!
