Friday Faves

2 mins read

Hello favorite friends, welcome to Friday.


It’s about to be a big weekend and with Daylight Savings hitting our calendar this Sunday, that means more time to be outside. You’ll find me trading in my ski boots for golf shoes and a weekend escape for sun and fun. Don’t get me wrong. This year’s snow storms in Utah have been nothing short of epic, and with an equally epic drought on our hands, I’d welcome snowfall through June. Luckily, we all know that won’t happen but another few storms on the horizon is a-okay with me.

And that’s why cozy food is still on my cooking radar. I’ve been obsessed with watching Instagram reels of Italian grannies cooking authentic food so naturally, I’ve been craving meatballs. So when my dad made a request for them, I jumped to remake this favorite meatball and sauce recipe. With no frying involved, it’s totally easy to make. Just try it, I know you’ll like it.

Time for me to get packing and hit the road. I hope your weekend finds some glints of Daylight Savings Time sunshine on your horizon too!

So with that, here’s this week’s Friday Faves.

This is such a sweet and touching story that will restore your faith in the goodness of social media.

The ghosts in my home.

12 authors on their favorite stories by women.

The new series I’m nerding out over.

Also, this new show (based on this book) looks really good. The trailer totally hooked me.

The Oscars are on Sunday. Will you watch? What/who are you rooting for?

Here’s a printable ballot for you (if you’re planning on tuning in like I am).

Just don’t forget the fancy popcorn.

And this themed party menu also looks fun!

I love pickles and martinis are my cocktail of choice so this cocktail is one I HAVE to try.

Fried artichokes hearts. Yummy.

These chicken meatballs are making my mouth water.

My kinda salad right here.

If you’re looking for a weekend cooking project, try this one.

This Asian cucumber salad looks bomb.

Hibachi chicken with yum yum sauce. Nothing wrong with that.

Just added this easy one-pot chicken and rice dish to next week’s menu.


This Thai fried rice deserves a golden spoon.

Corned beef eggrolls? Well, okay!

Craving these lettuce wraps (they’re vegetarian too).

This soup needs to happen, ASAP.

I’d pick this decadent Bailey’s cheesecake over a pot of gold any day—just look at how creamy it is!

Raising a glass to this Guinness chocolate cake.

The cutest spring-themed cookie cutters (at a killer price)—perfect for making these yummy cookies with.

These sandals are on my wishlist.

Seeing crossbody bags everywhere or as we called them in the 90s fanny packs (as I still do) for purists-like-me:

Digging this glowy, sun-kissed makeup tutorial. And, the pretty pink blush I keep seeing all over the Internet.

How to REALLY stop the hiccups—I took a screenshot of this and am going to try—will report back!

That’s it for this week. Have a happy weekend and cook something good.
