Some New Favorites

Painting by Alex at The Spirit Orchard

Lately, the blog has been filled with my thoughts on some fairly serious topics. Although I’m quite introspective and enjoy writing about my faith journey, I also want to have some lighter posts in the mix as well!

So today, I want to share with you some of my favorite new finds.

Cooking Blogs

I recently stumbled upon two fabulous blogs about food and cooking. I love to find and try out new recipes. These two blogs make me so happy:

The Food Gospel According to Ruth:

Ruth shares her detailed recipes with photos, which makes it so much more fun. She often includes family recipes, and many of her dishes are reminiscent of my childhood. I made this dish over the weekend, and it was so yummy!

Miranda’s Untamed Kitchen:

Miranda posts gluten-free recipes that are actually good. I am not 100% gluten-free, but I try to reduce my intake whenever possible. This hummus recipe is my new favorite! And she’s promising that tikka masala recipe soon…

Baby Gifts and Art

A friend in Alabama recently started an Etsy business, and I love her products! Alex is a mom to three beautiful children, a talented artist, and she also makes these amazing knitted pea pods for infants…

How adorable! I love the pea pods and hats and diaper covers…such great gift ideas.

Alex sells her original art (see photo at the top of this post — also amazing!) and handmade products at The Spirit Orchard. Click the link to check out her other products.


My last new favorite thing…Twitter. Yes, I realize I’m about 4 years behind, but–after years of resistance–I finally joined. And I’m actually enjoying it (much more than facebook). You can follow me @allisonkflex.

Have a great week! If you have any new favorite things, please share them in the comments.

(Disclaimer: These are some of my personal favorite things. No one asked me to post these links and I will receive nothing in exchange for posting these recommendations.)

    How did the chicken/artichoke dinner turn out? I wish I had been there for that. I love being your taste tester.
