Friday Finds: 9.18.15

Posted September 18, 2015 by Stephanie

I was at the grocery store the other day and I was astounded by all the pumpkin spice stuff out there. I mean, I love pumpkin spice as much as anyone, but even I thought it was overkill. There were pumpkin spice donuts, pumpkin spice oreos, pumpkin spice beer, pumpkin spice English muffins, pumpkin spice yogurt…and the list goes on and on. But, let’s face it, it’s not going to stop me from pumpkin-ing up this fall. Maybe I’ll skip out on the spice though…

1. Here’s a list of pumpkin spice craziness, if you want to get your pumpkin spice on.
2. What if I like both fried chicken AND yogurt?
3. Grief in the digital age.
4. A real live talking Barbie!
5. I have no words for this: Kanye 2020. Watch it here.
6. Food trends and how they reflect our current world views.

Link Love:
1. I LOVE steak and eggs, all day, every day!
2. These brown butter oat pancakes with caramelized bananas and bourbon whip are perfect for a dreamy September morning.
3. Round Tim Tams with peanut butter & sprinkles!!
4. The ultimate s’more.
5. Savory mooncakes! I really have to get my act together and try these guys out.

I’ve got my eyes on you:
1. I’m in love with The Neighborgoods I’m kinda a big dill kitchen towel!
2. Just got my copy of The Food Lab in the mail – it’s massive! I’m excited to read through it this weekend.

Hope you guys have a wonderful, fall-filled weekend!
love & potatoes,
xoxo Steph


  1. for the longest time i steered away from the pumpkin shaped reese’s because i thought they were actually pumpkin spice flavored. i’m glad to say that they aren’t (in case anyone else still is confused).

    and i tried savory mooncakes a couple years ago and was pleasantly surprised, especially considering the fact that i’m into sweet things a lot more than meaty things.

  2. You know that the corporate world wants you to accept that autumn’s around the corner when suddenly entire store aisles are dedicated to pumpkin spice products. I’m still not completely on board the pumpkin spice bandwagon, but I’d love to try my hand at your pumpkin spice Tim Tims. Yum!

    I’m still on the WE STILL HAVE A WEEK MORE OF SUMMER wagon, so all things pumpkin can GTFO.. for another week. ;) That panda toast is killlllling me, though. And is making me realize I should probably play with my food more often so I can eat cute things like dat.

  4. Ashlae says:

    WAIT THAT’S NOT A PANDA. That’s a bear. It’s clearly too early for me to be adding commentary on blogs.

  5. Alana says:

    That bear toast!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! I want some right now!! And yay to all the links, especially the steak and eggs! :D

  6. Stephanie, thank you so much for including my savory mooncakes! You’re the sweetest <3.
