Favorite Finds Friday, June 12

Here are a few of the most interesting, fun, practical, weird, frivolous, informative, creative, yummy, etc. finds I have found on the internet this week. Let me know what you think!

glutenfreedumpcakeGluten Free Blueberry Dump Cake from Gluten Free on a Shoestring

While I don’t need to be gluten free, my sister-in-law and her two daughters do.  So for holidays and family gatherings, this has to be taken into consideration.  It is nice that we can still have yummy treats and everyone can partake.  And we all love blueberries!  Although this recipe is not dairy free, I would think that using non-dairy milk and oil, and fresh whipped coconut milk whipped cream would work.  This recipe also links a recipe for gluten free vanilla cake mix, which is also not dairy free.   I don’t know a dairy alternative to cultured buttermilk blend powder or whey powder, but the Betty Crocker gluten free yellow cake mix is dairy free.

Achillea_millefolium__Common_YarrowUses for Yarrow from Urban Prepper Chicks Herb of the Week

I have yarrow growing in my garden.  I got it a few years ago because it was an herb and I thought the flower was pretty.  To he honest, I had no idea about what it was or how to use it.  I’ve since researched it and have found that while it doesn’t have a lot of use as a cooking herb, it’s a very useful medicinal herb.

 

 

cucumbersaladGrandma’s Cucumber Salad from Lauren’s Latest

I TOTALLY understand this post.  I have several childhood favorites that my grandmother made and never wrote down the recipe.  I did convince her one time to give me one of her recipes and while she told me what she put in it, she had no idea about measurements because she did it.  Even with her directions I couldn’t make that recipe.  Anyway, I love cucumbers and I think my guys will LOVE this recipe.  I can’t wait to try it once my cucumber plants start producing…I hope.  Last year my cucumber vines grew really well…and not one cucumber.  Not one.

15HerbsforHeadaches15 Herbs for Headaches from The Homestead Garden

I suffer from frequent headaches.  While I used to suffer migraines, I am very thankful that I haven’t had one in several years.  What I mainly suffer from is sinus headaches.  And I’m always on the lookout for something natural that will help.  I am certainly going to check these out.

 Shabby-Chic Inspiration Crochet Doilies from Anabelia Craft Design

These are beautiful.  And the gift package idea is so elegant.  Everything on this blog is beautiful.  Such talent.  There is a link to the pattern toward the end where you can get the PDF.  I can’t wait to try a pattern or two, but I have really enjoyed browsing.  But these doilies are next in line on my project list.  Next after all the other projects that I have yet to finish.  Well, there is always room for one more….

That’s all my finds for this week. More next time! If you come across something you think I might be interested in (or maybe you posted it yourself), leave me a comment and I’ll check it out.

Colossians 3:23 – And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
