Friday Finds: 1.5.18

Posted January 5, 2018 by Stephanie

In case you missed it, it’s 2018! Have you made any resolutions this year? Have you already broken them? So far 2018 has been good – we’ve been taking a little break from our regular scheduled programing, but next week we should be back to normal! Instead of doing the blog thing, Mike and I have been relaxing, wandering, and eating, of course.

I’ve been surfing the internet as per usual and here’s what’s caught my eye. I never realized that you guys like Friday Finds so much – that informal poll on this post really taught me that you guys do read this! Maybe my 2018 resolution should be to do Friday Finds every week?


  1. Instant Pot: it’s a phenomenon and it’s here to stay.
  2. I’m a Bourdain fan from way back and this is a good read. h/t to Mike for that one :)
  3. Social media FOMO is bad for you. Is 2018 the year you quit?!
  4. Kenji Lopez-Alt: yay or nay?
  5. Stay warm out there friends – it’s so cold that waterfalls are freezing!
  6. Can an algorithm predict danger better than humans can?
  7. Lolokitchen’s pies are everywhere and now she’s getting hate.
  8. Sleep, we need it, but why?
  9. Cardi B and frosted flakes with lucky charms.
  10. Teens don’t party anymore.
  11. Logan Paul is absolutely disgusting – I don’t normally hate on people but I really, really dislike him.
  12. On a happier note, this makes me feel fuzzy, in a good way.
  13. This doggo knows how I feel when I go to Target.

Link Love:

  1. Pizza and quiche, together as one!
  2. Mushrooms, soy sauce, and butter, this pasta has all my favorite things.
  3. I’ve been wanting to make upside down pineapple cake forever and this one looks so tasty.

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. This book looks like just the kind of thing I want to dig into on our plane ride back home.
  2. We’re planning on having a takoyaki party soon!
  3. I would never buy this because it’s so expensive but I have dreams of starting a taiyaki stand. Maybe I’ll start with this one instead?

Lately on I am a Food Blog:

  1. We’ve been in Tokyo, eating our hearts out.
  2. Matcha pavlova: crispy, marshmallowy, creamy, GOOD.
  3. I could eat a whole tray of these hot ham and cheese mini sliders and I wouldn’t even be mad about it.
  4. Fluffy pancakes are where it’s at.
  5. My new years wish for you :)

That’s it! Hope your first weekend of 2018 is a good one :)

    Yes to the Friday Finds! You find things I never would and expand my universe. Keep it up!

  2. I’ve read so many interesting things from people’s round-ups – especially things I wouldn’t have thought would interest me. I am looking forward to the Instant Pot piece – in the UK it’s not really a big thing (yet?)

    A takoyaki party ‘octo’ be amazing!
