Friday Links: 10.17.2014

It’s Friday! It feels like it’s been a particularly long week so I’m pretty excited about the weekend. On Wednesday I was preheating the oven for pizza and of course, the fire alarm went off. Usually when this happens I’ll wave a dish cloth near the alarm and it’ll stop beeping at me, but this time around the entire building’s alarm went off! I thought it was me, but when we finally made it down all those flights of stairs (so many, many flights) we found out it was a false alarm. When we made it back upstairs I figured it was the perfect day to make pizza – if the alarm did go off, it wouldn’t be because of me.

Other than that, it was thankfully uneventful. On Wednesday Mike and I had an extra cozy night of watching Top Chef and having hot pot. It was a super cozy night in and I’m looking forward to many more this winter.


1. This isn’t from this week, but it still cracks me up!
2. I think this would make cleaning the floors so much more fun.
3. I’m definitely going to be crocheting this soon.
4. I am so, so, so, so, so, excited to watch this!

Link Love:

1. Glorious double chocolate muffins.
2. These banana bread cinnamon buns look insanely good.
3. Spicy, slippery, rice ribbons – the noodles of my dreams.
4. I could eat this arroz con pollo every single day and be happy.
5. Everything in life should be mini, just like these perfectly mini chicken pot pies.
6. Soup in a hand pie!
7. I have a thing for sweet and salty oatmeal cookies.
8. The most gorgeous photos of overnight oats I’ve ever seen.

Have a lovely weekend folks! I’m off to the FBC 2014 Conference. It’s my first and I’m nervous-excited! What are you guys up to?
xoxo Steph

PS – I had a couple of features up around this week: I’m on Vitamin Daily, my toolbox is featured on Free Agency, I made dumplings for USPS stamps, and the lovely Jess featured me on little small shop!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and your awesome acorn squash lasagna recipe. Eager to try!! I’ve never tried acorn in a lasagna before so I’m bursting with excitement (ok, overkill). Looks sooooo marvelously good. Sorry about the fire alarm and your pizza in all. I had a fire alarm go off in college with my green facial cleansing mask on!! Hmmm, no dates for me that weekend!! So embarrassing =)

  4. Thank you so much, Steph! Your words mean so much to me, as I really love what YOU create in this culinary world. I mean, can I please have a serving of those dumplings?

    Thanks so much for the share! Constantly inspired by your recipes/photography.

  6. I think the arroz con pollo is going to be for Sunday dinner! Sounds delicious!


  7. The small pie action this week has been insane! Those broccoli pies, the chicken pot pies, homiez are on fire. Also I am insanely excited for that Disney short – I already love that puppy. Thanks for the cookie love! <3
