I love lists, Friday!

  1. I feel that this waffle iron was made for me.
  2. I had Molly. I really just loved her clothes best. I don’t do Victorian. HELLO striped PJS!
  3. The sweetest letter to the sweetest babe.
  4. Spiced Pumpkin Ice Cream made with Coconut Milk? Sign me up!
  5. This recipe looks awesome, but seeing inside Heidi’s suitcase is even better!
  6. Top 5 things Restaurants Should Never Serve Again. They’re not wrong.
  7. Oh yeah. I’m totally going to do this during the holidays.
  8. This Glass Pendant DIY is gorgeous. I love ombre!
  9. Trick or Treat Halloween Cookies. Love these.
  10. I might have to donate my GAP pants now.
  11. All of my favorite things in one dish!
  12. The Art of a Bar Cart. I’m setting up a Bar in a Closet right now!
  13. I LOVE Lisa’s new blog design. Black, white & YELLOW goodness.
  14. It’s great to see people being kind, isn’t it?
  15. 27 Reasons Why Woman are Wonderful. Pretty much!

RUT-TOBER. It’s the name of the latest Joy the Baker podcast. We need your help and we need to stop discussing the fact that it was our 69th episode. Ew.

Aida Mollenkamp wanted to know what my Key in the Kitchen is. You can read it here!

My Bites Around the Net:

 Sara from The Little Bite made my Curried Chicken with Coconut Rice.

Vanessa  from Just The Tip  made my Baked Artichoke Squares

The Guy & The Girl from The Guy and His Girl made my Baked Pumpkin Pecan Doughnuts.

Victoria of Victoria Sponge Pease Pudding made my My Brussels Sprout Bacon Pizza.

    I particularly love the ’27 reasons why women are wonderful’ list today!

  • Laura

    I look forward to starting every Friday (or Saturday) morning off with your lists 🙂 Thanks!

  • Mrs. P

    HAHA, so your love of stripes goes back a ways? I had Felicity. And later Molly . . . she was shared between me and my sisters. (Grandma’s idea, because she was disappointed when we asked for Felicity, Addy, and Kirsten instead of Molly.)

  • Hilary

    YIKES! ‘GAP jeans’ was really eye-opening…thank you for alerting me to the distinct possibility that I am wearing mom jeans! GAAAAH! Time for a serious closet analysis.

  • Mrs. P

    P.S. I just have to say . . . I love your shoes.

  • Sandi

    Enjoyed the Key in the Kitchen interview. You do make working in the kitchen look fun AND easy.

  • Abby@ Totes Delish

    I love that video! And that ice cream is making me swoon!

  • cindy

    6 and 15 are my FAVES!

  • Sara

    I didn’t have an American Girl doll, but my grandma always got me the catalogs anyway. I’m obviously scarred. But! If I did have one, it’d be Felicity. Fo Sho.

    And thanks for the mention 🙂

  • Amy S.

    I love Grasping for Objectivity! And I love her crusade to end the dreaded “mom jeans”! 🙂

  • Erin DeGroot

    Molly!! She was a cute one! I always wanted her too. Her, and Kirsten. She had the cutest little Scandanavian accessories

  • Julianne of Kitchen Constellations

    I love your lists! Molly and Josefina were my two favorites.

  • alyssa

    I had Samantha AND Molly. Now I’m having an identity crisis.

    Those trick or treat cookies make me wish there were kids in my life so I had an excuse to make them.

  • Theresa

    I love that typewriter waffle maker and the diy pendant lights! Ooh, and those cookies! I mean cookies that also hold candy, how can you lose?! Great list!


  • Megan

    Thanks for linking to my cookies!

  • Kate

    Ohemgee. I have a pair of EACH of the Old Navy jeans she talks about. The dreaded MOM JEANS!!!! Gah! Also, they DO stretch out in about five minutes. 😛

    I had Addie! I wonder where she is… 🙂

  • Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

    Oh lord! I hope my butt doesn’t look that bad in my gap jeans. I might donate them! Hahaha! I loved the American Girl doll article. I had Kirsten. She taught me about hardships and thanks to her I think if a zombie-pocalypse a la The Walking Dead were to happen I think I would manage! So funny!

    • Tracy

      You know….they never really stretch out for me. I think it’s cuz they’re super tight on me to begin with…

  • Marisa

    I also had Molly (actually, I still have her, 23 years later) and I loved that dolly mightily.

    • Tracy

      I still have her!! Or at least my mom does. You should see her hair. It’s atrocious.

  • Katie @ Blonde Ambition

    I HAD MOLLY TOO! My mom always used to make fun of me (years later) for liking the dorkiest, least popular doll. Sigh.

    That thing about Gap mom jeans is too funny. Do their jeggings count too? Uh oh.

  • Annie

    I wanted an American Girl doll SO BAD but never got one. Oh well, I hope it built some kind of character or something 🙂

  • Jessica

    I had Molly too! She was always my favorite because she wore glasses too. And those pajamas!

    Tracy, I can’t tell if it’s the hem of a dress or a skirt you’re wearing but I LOVE the pattern! Definitely my colors!

  • Ellen

    Surprisingly I agreed with that top five list! On the things I had tried-being a vegetarian I couldn’t speak for the meat things. The one thing I hope is that hatred of truffle oil doesn’t lead to shunning truffle salt. THAT stuff is good. If it leads to people not feeling the need to garnish everything with a dash of olive oil though, that would make me happy…

  • Emily @ www.main-eats.com

    Coconut and pumpking?! WHOA BABY!!!

  • Danica Evans

    I had Molly too, but always wished I’d had Samantha… I LOVE your Friday lists 🙂

    […] there are a few things I need to share before I forget.  Like Erin does (found recently via Shutterbean) – how sweet are these letters to her Bee?  Looks like little Bee is just slightly older […]
