Happy Fri-fri to the TGIF! Another week down the drain and I for one and a happy camper to see it happen. And now, I need your help friends.

Friday Faves 03-14-2014 FoodieCrush.com

See, I’m a fan of my Friday Faves. And I hear from you guys that you like it too. But each week I’m in flux with how to write it up. I go back to old posts and see things that I like, and things that I don’t. And then I get all flummoxed again. Flummoxed I tell you. Flummoxed.

So, I need your help. Because in the end, I’m doing this for both of us.

We should both be happy don’t you think?

Do you want to see it with more photos interwoven into my list? I used to do it that way, like in this Friday Fave post.

Do you want more story about the stuff I like and why? That’s usually what I like on other blogs but I may just be nosy.

Or do you just want to get in and out and get straight to the meat of the matter with really short links like the way I did it in this Friday Faves post?

Or should I just stop dwelling over it and just keep it the way it is now?

So please…please…I beg of you, for the love of all foodies, leave a comment in the notes below about how you’d like to see your future Friday Faves so I don’t bore you to death and I’ll be able to cancel my appointment to see a head dr. for my head case.


Last week I posted March’s 5 Food Blogs I’m Following Now, but if you missed it, check it out here, and while you’re at it, visit February’s list. I’ll be posting these the first Friday of every month. I love discovering new blogs, and apparently, you do too. Thanks for reading!

So who is ready to get outside and dig in the dirt? Me! I’m a gardener, but usually get my plants from the nursery. Or the grocery store because I get reward points. BONUS!

The last few gardening years have been nothing but dismal. Pure dismal. It’s gone downhill with each year we’ve lived in this house.

I don’t even have pics of last year except for the virgin plants that didn’t get much bigger than this. It was so sad.

So I’m either giving up the garden, or I’m thinking about getting out my trowel and starting things indoors with this guide. The jury’s still out.

How cute is this print for the kitchen and your favorite ice cream lover.

If you’re a blogger, this is THE ONE LINK you have to check out. So much great info in there and actual, real-life usable tips and tricks. Go figure.

Out with the old in with the new so let’s spring clean! I LOVE this closet makeover. Look how they organized the purses!


I know you have just as much e-mail junk mail as me. This site is THE BEST. It unsubscribes you from any of those annoying daily / weekly e-mails you’re always just hitting delete on.

Cute! These wordplay plates are so punny—ha—for the entertaining cook.

This essay by J-Law’s bestie about being her date at the Oscars was such a fun read and put my celebrity stalker tendencies into overdrive. Can you even imagine actually living this quote of hers:
“After the show we go backstage where I meet Brad and Angelina. Brad Pitt smells amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelled. Eventually we ask what cologne he’s wearing and he tells us, “I don’t wear cologne, it’s just my musk I guess.” I have to choose not to believe him because it would just be unfair to mankind.”

I would die.


MySpace is still alive? Go figure X 2.

If I could, I would LIVE in this Pinterest board. Everything, EVERYTHING is perfectly my dream style.

How to take killer photos in low light.

I love this guide—and the cuteness—of how and what to pack for Paris with just a carry-on. Or any food conference where you gotta look cute. Man, I need to go shopping.

The perfect boiled egg, at every stage. I like em really soft for ramen, but perfectly boiled for the perfect egg salad. Find out how to do it here.

I love stripes, hence, how much do I love this summery tote!

The best typefaces of 2013. Noe Display and Post Grotesk are in my future.

My husband thought you guys would like this. Do you? Cute of him to share, right?


I should probably buy him these to reward him. Well, and me, kind of. I love the gold rims.

Hate kids? Or maybe they’re just being really, really naughty? Show them who’s boss when you take them here to play.

It’s a feather. It’s gold. It’ll look great on my wrist.

10 old fashioned dating habits we all should make cool again. Like pick up the phone and make a call instead of text? Word.

So I’m working on getting my e-newsletter going, and moving my RSS feed and then I read this and get all confused again. Does it matter or not? Would love to hear your thoughts.

I told you about this seasonal produce guide in yesterday’s salad post, but it deserves another look if you missed it. Download it!

Breakfastize It

This weekend I won’t be home to make brunchy breakfasts and boozey brunches—you can voyeur along with me on Instagram when you follow me here—so I’m leaving you with instructions to take over in my stead.

With that, here are a few breakfast baking ideas from food blogs this week to get you on your way. Oh, and one healthy drink to prep you come Monday morning. 


The Best Gluten-free and Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

I’m still scared of making cinnamon rolls. Yep, I’m a CR virgin. But, this recipe includes a step by step guide to proofing yeast that just might get me on my way. Recipe here.


Peanut Sugar Morning Buns

Or you could go with these ginormous  that are promised to be delivered in just two folds and in under two hours. How does she make it happen? Go check it out to find out. Recipe here.


Crispy Coconut French Toast with Sour Cherries

Whoa mama. Stuuunnning. And my favorite coconut flavor that I might have to add a chocolate chip or two just to get my full dose of favorite Almond Joy flavors. Recipe here.


French Toast Bagels

So maybe you don’t want to sit to eat your french toast. That makes these portable holed up breads the perfect alternative. Honey cream cheese here I come. Recipe here.


Apple Cinnamon Pancake

This is like dessert for breakfast. And that’s what weekends are made for, to be the most popular foodie in the house. Recipe here.


Miss Green Smoothie

Smudge calls it her green machine. I call it the only way to get her to eat leafy veggies other than lettuce dipped in ranch. You’ll call it deliciously healthy in one big slurp. Recipe here. 

So much for my diet. 

Have a great weekend friends and happy eating!
