  7. And suddenly I’m craving crepes.
  8. These Grilled Asian Pork Burgers would score major points with the hubs.

    I am thrilled to make your ‘bites around the net’! Just want to tell you that I’ve been a regular reader for years and am *always* inspired by you and your posts and recipes. I finally decided to start my own food blog and am having a lot of fun with it!
    Take care! 🙂

  • Stefanie @ Sarcastic Cooking

    I am 29. I turn 30 in March and I feel like I have been agreeing with everything on that list for a few years now! Skyler White, wow! What an interesting insight into what it is like to play a strong female character. I still am in awe you got to see the Lady O!

    I’ve been following you for awhile in instagram, and for whatever reason I haven’t clicked through to your site until last night. Ummm… I stayed up way too late reading…. and barely made a dent (yay! more to read!) I love pretty much everything you make, your images… every little thing. And it’s a great glimpse into the Bay Area that I moved away from a year ago and miss in so many ways. So, thank you, from a long-time-instagram-follower-new-reader-devotee. I don’t normally gush onto people’s comment sections, but I just wanted to let you know that I am grateful that I’ve discovered your site, and look forward to following along.

    If you haven’t seen this yet, it might make your list next week (or make you want to get married again): http://jezebel.com/well-this-is-one-very-adorable-wedding-video-1218944786

  • Kayli Schattner

    Always love your lists. Great round up!

  • Irvin

    Holy MOLY! That Hoarders Mid-Century Modern house flip was AMAZING. The before pics were SUPER scary. Not sure I could live in that house if I had seen the befores but it’s gorgeous after!

  • Sera

    Great list! Also, smookies? YUM!

  • Alex

    I absolutely love your blog and think you and your recipes and your photographs and your lists are fantastic! I’m a graduate student at UM and I actually work with John Jonides (one of the primary researchers of the Facebook study you posted). I’m totally reading your list while procrastinating in my office at work and I might have just had a minor heart attack that my love of food blogs and psychology are colliding.

  • Jen @ Jen's Favorite Cookies

    I’m dying over that hoarded house transformation! That’s crazy!! Thanks for including me in this weeks list, great stuff!

  • Kristen
