Friday Finds: 9.23.16

Posted September 23, 2016 by Stephanie

Whelp, it’s officially fall. I can’t complain because I love the sound of crunching leaves and crisp autumn air. The past few nights Mike and I have been getting cozy and eating spicy hot pot while binge watching Gotham. We also snuck in a few last bit of summer ice cream cones, so really, best of both worlds! Never mind the fact that I was freezing after the cone – just means I wasn’t dressed properly right?

Anyway, looking forward to the weekend – hoping to catch some fall foliage. What are you guys up to?


  1. This video makes me nostalgic for something I’ve never even had: Southern-style boxed lunch.
  2. Science messing with mosquitos, are you yay or nay?
  3. Ikea forever!
  4. The restaurant biz seems stressful.
  5. Food blogging thoughts from Deb of Smitten Kitchen.

Link Love:

  1. I love shaved vegetables and I love fennel so I’m all over this gorgeous salad.
  2. Cutest “bagel & lox” ever!
  3. Autumn salad, cause you can’t just be all about the soups come fall.
  4. Sometimes I dream kolache dreams.

I’ve got my eyes on you:

  1. I devoured Dark Matter deep in the night while Mike lay asleep next to me. One of the most fun reads I’ve had all year, I feel. If you like fast-paced, science-y thriller, road-not-taken type books, this one’s for you.
  2. I definitely don’t need a toaster, but maybe I need weenie dog emblazoned toast?

This/last week on I am a Food Blog:

  1. Mini dorayaki – one of my fave Japanese desserts.
  2. Mike wrote me a birthday blog post
  3. Funfetti cruffins – use a pasta roller to make cruffins, then add a bunch of sprinkles!
  4. Getting a lil healthy with zoodles, tomatoes, basil, and burrata.
  5. In which I write about being depressed and eating away my feelings with tiny pizzas.

Hope you guys have a autumn-licious walk complete with fall leaves and get extra cozy this weekend!
xoxo steph

    Hey Steph!

    I have been following your blog for a while now, even though I cook or bake very occasionally. I love seeing the pictures you take so creatively and how you make everything look so easy and do-able. I have probably gotten about 50 people to check your blog out, including some very well-known celebrity chefs in India, and they love it! I particularly love your Friday Finds and I make it a point to come see what you are loving! Great stuff! xx
