Friday Finds: 6.2.2017

Posted June 2, 2017 by Stephanie

Happy June! Do you guys have big plans? Mike and I are planning something HUGE but it’s still up in the air so I’m not going to say anything about it yet. But aside from our secret plan, we’ve been camping and brunching and enjoying the unusually early warm summer-like weather we’ve been blessed with.


  1. Why this tech-run grilled cheese fast food joint isn’t a home run.
  2. A sweet real life love story.
  3. The self-esteem craze: all hype, no heart.
  4. Addiction in America.
  5. On food and cultural appropriation.
  6. I’ve had the gelato at Otto and it is everything they say – the gelato master is a genius.
  7. A look into self publishing, from the dudes at Alinea.
  8. Um, I kind of want this sushi ferris wheel/rollercoaster.
  9. I just learned how to skip stones on our last camping trip (I could only do a pitiful 2) so this article about a stone skipping competition put a smile on my face.

Link Love:

  1. Portugal looks dreamy.
  2. I’m a fan of funfetti!
  3. These salmon caprese skewers look amazing.
  4. I wish all my mornings could start with this french toast.

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. Tempted to try these all natural anti-mosquito patches when we go camping but I’m also kind of skeptical.
  2. These coffee filters are perfect for camp pourover!
  3. I went on a massive reading spree and sped through Marlena, The Handmaid’s Tale (again), and The Whole Thing Together.

Lately on I am a Food Blog:

  1. Rice-free paella! I riced up some cauliflower and it tasted just as good as traditional.
  2. Mike and I went on a Cannon Beach adventure.
  3. In-N-Out double doubles because the nearest one is entirely too far away.
  4. I love tamagoyaki. Who knew it would make the most ultimate breakfast sandwich?
  5. Make sausage, at home!

Have a wonderful weekend full of grilled meats and veggies!

    I loved your post about Cannon Beach. My husband and I took a run out there from Portland on our honeymoon 4 years ago. That place is pure MAGIC. Your pictures brought back so many memories. I have a physical NEED to get back to that part of the world!
