Hey hey, and happy FriYAY!
This was the first summer in 10 years where I finally felt like I finally got it. I didn’t realize it while I was going through it, but now, looking back, I realize I really did have a great, enjoyable, eventful but relaxing summer. It might be the first one where I don’t feel regret at not completing my summer bucket list. I’m okay with that. Because what I did get to do and enjoy was fulfilling enough.
Now, I’m feeling fully back into the swing of things. My head is down and I’m working away, creating new content, recipes, and brainstorming ideas to make FoodieCrush a better resource for you. And tasty too. If you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. Email me and let me know at [email protected]
Now that I’m back into work mode, that can mean just one thing…I’m going to totally disrupt my flow and go on a trip. Next week I’m traveling with one of my best friends for some one on one girl time. Fingers crossed we don’t run into the path of more hurricanes.
If you’d like, follow along on my travels on Instagram stories here.

But for now, we are status quo. So let’s dig into this week’s list of Friday Faves.
This photographer’s self-starting story is unique, but inspiring. Just like her unreal but real photos.
What are you secretly good at? The comments will make you realize…so much more than you thought!
With all the time on computers and screens, I think I need a pair of these blue light blocking glasses. So cute too.
Intimacy and the internet…when is sharing oversharing, and just to much?
Falling for fall with all the apples:
- This apple cider prosecco spritz
- Kale salad with cranberries, apple and cheddar cheeeeeeze
- Gimme the hole baked apple cider doughnuts
- Back to school apple cake
I LOVE a good tuna salad and this one is so fresh—and no mayo. Lunch. Done.
GAHHH! Baked burrata pasta. Yes.
This rice pilaf is a loverly side dish with more fresh herbs and the best of summer’s tomatoes.
A hummus platter that makes the meal.
Cheesey stuffed turkey zucchini meatballs. Healthy for good.
When zucchini noodles meets pasta with shrimp. SO GOOD.
Load up those zucchini boats with sausage.
Feeling the comfort with this taco soup, two ways.
Instant Pot recipe alert: Beef stroganoff.
I’m always trying to cut down on clutter, so:
- How to sell, donate, and get rid of the clutter.
- For those who don’t like stuff on countertops, this tool stand keeps everything in one spot.
My favorite product to get rid of stickers and labels on glass. Lighter fluid works too.
Ordered this foldable kitchen scale today. I’ll let you know how I like it. Anyone else?
So much kitchen and tabletop 40-50% off at Nordstrom ’til Sunday.
Tile backsplashes are having their day! 27 kitchen backsplashes to bookmark now.
This is what happens to your skin when you drink alcohol (and which drink is best for it.)
A great cropped sweater. So cozy.
LOVING this wide leg pant that’ll take you all through the year. Definitely with sneakers.
Back to school means more rules. Which means lots of whining. How NOT to lose your cool with your kids. Just. Like. That. HAHAHAHA
And, yes it’s too early but still, bookmark this…Hallmark just released its entire Christmas movie schedule.
And that’s the name of the game for this week. Have a fab weekend and get in the kitchen and cook something good!
Okay! That’s it for this week! Have a great long weekend and eat more good food!
