Friday Finds: 2.6.2015

Posted February 6, 2015 by Stephanie

Time is flying! I don’t know if it’s because we’re in the middle of moving or just because we’re back in North America, but it seems like the days are just blowing by! Please stop time! I need more hours in the day…I’ve been a little stressed out over here and have been eating entirely too much of a frozen Deep and Delicious McCains chocolate cake that I stress bought the other day. Frozen cake is sooooooooo good. Also, I did a Trader Joe’s run and now my freezer is filled up with chicken potsickers which makes me so, so happy. You guys don’t judge my frozen dumpling addiction, do you?! Frozen dumplings are the bomb!


1. My obsession with miniature things continues. And here’s more!
2. I love this list of the best cooking advice.
3. Jimmy Fallon is on point lately: epic rap battles and reliving the 80s.
4. I thought this was an interesting read: the existential transformative experience of being on Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

Link Love:

1. This cake is so orange dream-sicle I could die.
2. Give me ALL the sexy bacon cheeseburgers!
3. Black and white valentines.
4. It’s scrambled egg magic!

I’ve Got My Eyes On You:

1. I couldn’t resist buying this little elephant drain.
2. This cutting board is dreamy.
3. I LOVE the packaging on these chocolate bars – cereal bowl might be my favorite!
4. I take notes all the time on paper. It would be so fun to do it on these sushi block memopads!

Have THE best weekend friends!

love & potatoes,
xoxo Steph

PPS – Do you guys have a favourite slow cooker? I think I want to get one but don’t know where to start.


  1. Jess says:

    The jimmy fallon skits made me giggle so hard, and I NEED those cheeseburgers in my life. Awesome list!

  2. Julie says:

    Cooking advice #22 “You cannot toss a salad or mix cookies or make meatballs in a tiny cereal bowl. All you can do is make a bigger mess.” Is there a camera in my kitchen? Has someone been watching over my shoulder?? Thanks for the links and good luck making time slow down!

  3. I am also in love with UO kitchen equipment! it has to be one of my absolute faves place to shop because of the shipping. Also drooled all over Mandy’s eggs post, they are simply too good to be true!

  4. Cook’s Illustrated recommends the 6 1/2 quart KitchenAid. Before they recommended the 6 1/2 quart Crockpot Touchpad, which I have and like. They say that the Crockpot runs a little hot so they got better results on the KitchenAid.

  5. Heidi says:

    I love my slow cooker with removable cast iron insert – it’s a Crock Pot brand one.

  6. Abby says:

    Ahhh I love these links, Stephanie! And omg, that chocolate cake sounds soo good <3

  7. Craig says:

    I had a slow cooker until very recently, i gave it to my mum, but i absolutely loved mine. Pop it on before work and be met on return with that great smell of cooking and the only prep left is to get a plate and cutlery. My only advice is get the size you need. It’s very tempting to get a big one just because, but it needs somewhere to live when you’re not using it. Think about when you’re planning to use it regularly and how many people it will normally be feeding. Hope it helps. Be well

  8. That list of best cooking advice is great. I think that we know we should be doing many of those things, yet somehow we don’t. It’s good to be reminded.

  9. Mary Beth says:

    I try and keep my cooking gadgets to a minimum, because it saves storage space in my kitchen. I thought about buying a slow cooker, but I work from home, so I just make the same recipes in my oven, with it set to a low temp.

  10. Medha says:

    That link for “best cooking advice” – I am loving every word of it! Thanks for sharing – have a good weekend to you girl!

  11. Always Me says:

    OMG that mini kitchen. I can’t.
    And Faux Martha’s cookies are adorable!!

  12. Hannah says:

    That Epicurious list is amazing! Thanks!

  13. Alyssa says:

    Gah, Tokyu Hands is The. Best. Ever. And why do I want that miniature kitchen so badly?

  14. Teddy says:

    Frozen Dumplings and Potstickers were how I survived the dorms in college.. well that and canned chilli hahaha
