Friday Finds: 8.28.15

Posted August 28, 2015 by Stephanie
fantastic donuts -

Another week just flew by and I cannot believe we’re almost into September, which happens to be my favorite month of all. As a super geeky kid, I LOVED back to school, so September always reminds me of fresh new pencils, unmarred notebooks, and crispy-crunchy fall days. Plus, it’s my birthday month, so there’s that! As much as I love summer, I’m looking forward to fall. I just want me some cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes, and hearty stew. I know, I know, I’m a cliche.

1. Speaking of pumpkin spice lattes
2. They’re making a Star Wars theme park in Disney!
3. Punny food truck names.
4. Loved this feature on Stephan Colbert. Can’t wait for the Late Show premiere!
5. There’s a lot floating around the news right now about birth tourism.
6. It’s ridiculous how crazy rental situations can get.

Link Love:
1. These kiwi caipirinhas look amazing.
2. My kinda pancakes – fluffy, blueberry filled & topped.
3. These cheesy, spicy, honey toasts look absolutely delicious.

I’ve got my eyes on you:
1. I’ve been eyeing this saucepan in real life at stores and now that I know it’s so much cheaper on amazon, I just may have to get it!
2. This is the cutest colander spoon ever. I don’t know how useful it would be, but I guess in this case, form over function?

Have an awesome weekend friends!
love & potatoes,

xoxo Steph

PS – People are always asking me about my favorite ever cast iron pan (it’s a Finex) and I just wanted to let you guys know that if you’re interested, use my code, iamafoodblog on the Finex site for free shipping! It’s seriously the best!

    I CAN’T WAIT for that Star Wars park!! You better believe I’m (we’re) going to that!! Also, that colander spoon is the CUTEST!! You need it…and also, you need that saucepan :D. I’m seriously obsessed with Todd’s kiwi caipirinhas and the LIME ART action! Happy Friday!!

    I’m SO ready for fall as well. This heat is really taking it out of me. Thanks for the drink love, btw! Oh, and that spoon….!!

  3. Hi Stephanie,
    Just wanted to say thank you for picking such great ingredients for the Tabasco challenge! It was so fun seeing what everyone created.

  4. I’m shocked that here in Buffalo where’s it always seems cold, I’m ready for fall!! Maybe it’s because I can go back to wearing stretching pants that seem to accommodate no matter how many pumpkin muffins and coffees I scarf down =)

  5. but i must know where those adorable donuts are from!

  6. STAR WARS LAND. i am so excited!! because i just know how hard Disneyland will NAIL it! Cars Land is like walking directly into the movie … I think Star Wars heads will faint if they get to have a bubbly blue drink at the cantina!! i think this will coincide exactly with what I know will be Teddy’s extremeo nerd love for Star Wars coming up in his life. He already likes Star Wars and he’s only 3 and never seen any of the movie … hehe.

    Hopefully, it’s in New York City where I live!
