Hello and happy Friday friends!
While the East coast is digging itself out of a once again wild winter wonderland, over here in the West we FINALLY had the pleasure of welcoming old man winter and a pile of snow last weekend. IN MARCH!
Hey, I’ll take it when I can get it.
So while everyone else is moving into daylight savings time this weekend (aka every food bloggers favorite time of year because there’s more sunlight to take photos in) and placing their bets on College basketball finals as we all edge ever closer to spring flowers that bring May showers, I’ll happily be getting in some fun in the warm sun on the slopes and getting in some freshies on the Deer Valley mountain.
With a lot of work travel coming up, and spring break hopefully leading us somewhere fun, this week was all about playing catch up and trying to get ahead. Did I succeed? I feel like it was a pretty good attempt where I just about won.—and even cleared my inbox to zero for the first time in years.
But then again, there’s always next week as a reason to keep the momentum moving.
But enough about me, let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves!
What Went Up This Week…
Once I got back into the kitchen after our trip, I got busy in the kitchen and also shared a few recipes I already had in the bag, like:
- Mexican Shrimp with Orzo and Zucchini is a video that shows you how to make a healthy one-pot meal that’s totally fresh, and totally good. (Screenshot it all here.)
- Irish Pork Stew with Stout and Caraway Seeds because St. Patrick’s Day is almost here, and I’ll take any excuse to comfort food spiked with Guinness that I can get!
- One-Pot Penne Pasta with Turkey and Spinach is a super simple weeknight meal that even my videographer said was one he even wanted to make. Check out my Insta-video to see how.
So you gotta tell me. What are you craving? What do you want to see? Email me at email@example.com and let me know. Because seriously, I’m here to deliver what you want to see and if I don’t hear from you, I’ll never know! So tell me, friends o’ the Friday. What sort of recipes do YOU want to see?
Okay, enough with the soap box. Let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves…
“A flower doesn’t think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms.”— Jen Atkin, celebrity hair stylist and quote from the piecre 20 daily mantras of women we love celebrating International Women’s Day.
and speaking of amazing women…
This movie looks hilarious…And that cast!
As if there’s any more reason…I love you, Dolly Parton. Because she’s way more than just hair and nails, that’s for sure!
These are not your average Barbie dolls. #girlpower
Strength can also look great. A few of the best looks of the Oscars. Lupita Nyong’o and Margot Robbie…always stunners.
Word is the best beauty products used at the Oscars were all under $25. I might need that lipstick Gal Gadot wore.
There’s a new Instant Pot on the horizon, and the new feature will totally surprise you.
I’ve never put this ingredient in a smoothie before, but I gotta say, I will now.
Totally wanting this healthy-ish pizza-ish bite RIGHT NOW.
Craving this salad so hard right now.
Definitely can’t wait to slurp up this homemade hot and sour soup.
So many times I think Europeans are so far ahead of our way of thinking.
Omg, how freaking delicious does this baked chicken look?
but then, this chicken sheet pan meal. Perfection of flavors.
I really want to try this chili.
Ramen the vegetarian way, totally slurpable.
18 places you should be cleaning with vinegar. It’s totally super charged!
What food ingredient matches your soul? I’m red pepper flakes.
Did you know these types of alcohol should be refrigerated? #themoreyouknow

The cutest little cottage. When can I move in?
Also, the most insane tiny vacation house.
My Smudge found these Nikes when we were in NYC, and now I want a pair for myself. Pink!
speaking of pink…
After my bro-in-laws dog ate my clogs, I’ve been on the hunt for another pair, and I finally discovered these and couldn’t pass them up.
Is it weird that I have a crush on a drink dispenser? I’m all about the flavored spa water and this would make the perfect vessel for boozy lemonade this summer.
A workout playlist you’ll love.
Obsessed with this off the shoulder top (especially those sleeves).
The next big hair trend. Thank you Oscar.
Also, these hoop earrings are pretty dang minimalist cool.
