Wallflower Weekly Finds, 34

Over the weekend, I attended a friend’s wedding in Sonoma at the Stonetree Country Club. The venue was perfect for a pretty DIY wedding.



Oh my gosh. Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Cookies!

This is my fall drink – Homemade Apple Cider.

I need this in my life. Cider Braised Chicken with Spiced Butternut

This Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Fried Cheese Curds. The ultimate comfort food.

Easy Warm Swedish Caramel Apple Cheesecake. Yum!

I’d love this Ham and Cheese Hashbrown Waffles for breakfast.

I love chicken gnocchi soup.

Creamy Miso Peanut Chicken Lettuce Wraps. How delish does this sound?

This 5 minute enchilada sauce sounds super easy to make, doesn’t it?

Addicted to donut holes so these Pumpkin Donut Holes sound amazing.




Sally’s Candy Addiction. So many sweets! It’s perfect for gift giving this holiday season.

Michael Symon’s 5 in 5 in every season. Because who wouldn’t want to learn how to cook with 5 ingredients in approximately 5 minutes? Quick and easy is everything.



Oh my god. So many new shows premiering now that fall is here. Is there anything you’re excited to watch?

My list is endless. I’m always watching everything at the beginning of the season and slowly cross off shows that are way too dramatic for me.

And did anyone watch the CSI Finale? I’m soo sad. I’ve been watching it since the beginning.

New shows I’m excited about:



Code Black


Returning shows I’m excited about:


Criminal Minds



CSI: Cyber

Um…. Yeah. I actually don’t have time to watch all of this. I need to start eliminating shows.

    Omg you love crime shows that I love! How do you like the new addition (Aisha Tyler) to the Criminal Minds cast? Do you think she meshes with the rest of the cast well? And I love the father-daughter PI team-up going on in Castle ^_^

    • Andrea| Cooking with a Wallflower says:

      I feel it’s too soon to tell with Aisha Tyler, but I miss having Jennifer Love Hewitt on the show. lol. And as for Castle, I’m loving the father-daughter PI team, but I’m not loving the rift between Castle and Beckett. I mean, I know it’s not really a rift, but still. lol

    Andrea, you have a wonderful blog and the photos are beautiful! I love culinary tours and cooking myself and I frequently go to the Bay Area! Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m just starting 🙂

  3. The Story in the Frame says:

    I used to celebrate new shows like that. I’d get excited and give everything a shot each season and then slowly weed out the ones that weren’t good. It only takes one show that you get really attached to that gets cancelled to change that!

    Now I wait around to see what makes the cut and keep my ears open for word of mouth recommendations from trustworthy sources. It’s helped me manage my limited TV time!
