Ok. Show of hands. How many of you have had these Biscoff cookies and love them? I first had them years ago on a Delta flight (do they still serve them in this day and age of skimpy airplane service?) Then one year, someone gave MyDadLovesMeBestSister a huuuge basket of them for Christmas. And now, luckily, they’re starting to show up in our local grocery stores. (If you’re in the states, there’s a retail store finder that will help you find out if they’re in a store near you.)
But I’m not here to show you Biscoff cookies. Courtesy of my awesome invisible friend Linda Noblog, I’ve discovered Biscoff spread. Aka Biscoff Peanut Butter. But without the peanuts. Or nasty hazelnuts. (Oh, Nutella … I love me some chocolate, but did you have to put those bitter hazelnuts in there???) Have you tried Biscoff spread? It tastes all brown sugar-y and cinnamon-y just like Biscoff cookies!
When Linda e-mailed me about it, I was in such a hurry to try it that I ordered it off of the Biscoff website. (It occurred to me later that it’s probably in my local store right next to the Biscoff cookies.) I’ve tried it on apples, bananas, and bagels — all of which were wonderful. And even better there are lots of recipes on the internet for using this spread. Like the Devil’s Food Cake with Whipped Biscoff Ganache that started this whole conversation with Linda Noblog (she’s an amazing baker!) Or how ’bout Carrot Cupcakes with Biscoff Cream Cheese Icing? Or a Biscoff Banana Milkshake? (Ooooh, I even found a recipe to make Biscoff cookies from scratch, although, it’s hard to imagine that they’d be as good as the real thing.)
If food doesn’t grab you, how ’bout a new toy? Have you seen these new dry erase markers from Crayola? Be still my little worker bee heart. Now I can have some color at my desk at work. They come in regular and bright. Of course, I chose the bright version, ’cause, well … they’re just brighter.
They come with a cute little felt pouch, so I put a clip on it and I hang it near my white board. I was going to add a new flower on my board each day, but most days I forget. I draw baby stuff on my little twin-expecting friend‘s board when she’s not looking too. It’s a nice diversion when I need a minute to get up and stretch. Anyway, they’re really cool and they look like crayons, but erase just like dry erase markers. I think they’d be great for kids too.
And my last little Friday Finds are for you Ghastlie lovers out there. Go check out this gorgeous sewing machine cover, this amazing quilt with a fun creepy twist (Help Me! Help Me! LOL), and this very cool quilt (perfect to showcase the large print). It’s so fun to see all the Ghastlie inspiration out there!
Ok, I’m off to run errands. Have a great weekend!
