I love lists, Friday!


  1. How to be Polite.  Love.
  2. The gym can be annoying. Here’s proof.
  3. I can’t look away. What is all this stuff??
  4. These brownies. YUM.
  5. Here are some sandwich stereotypes for you.
  6. This salad is on my TO MAKE list
  7. Craving: CUPCAKES!
  8. Cobbler for two….more like ONE, if I’m eating it. 🙂
  9. If you’ve ever waited in line for that new thing, these are the people you encounter.
  10. Why it’s so hard to remember people’s names.
  11. This made me laugh. I totally ghost sometimes. You just gotta.
  12. Been thinking about making my own kombucha. I mean…it’s probably worth it.
  13. I forgot how much I love to make ghee.
  14. Things I need to do include: organize freezer  (it’s kinda bad right now)
  15. This ice cream sounds really good.
  16. Guilty as charged! 
  17. What a good son! This made me teary.
  18. Who was there to be Robin Williams for Robin Williams?
  19. 13 Things No One Tells You About Being a Woman  (amen)
  20. 30 is NOT the new 20.




On the latest episode of the Joy the Baker podcast, we chit chat about having a cast (and getting things stuck in it), Minnie Riperton, calligraphy, eyelashes, style blogs AKA RANDOMNESS!

Check it out here.





Gimme Some Oven made my Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake with Greek Yogurt.

    Someone Ate This reminds me of Dimly Lit Meals for One. Not sure which came first, but both are disgustingly hilarious.

    Great List! We totally ghost sometimes, but we call it doing the slip. Who has a freezer that looks like that? Mine could have been featured in the “what not to do” section. UGH! Have a great weekend Tracy.

  • jahaila @ Girl Nesting

    Ha!!! I LOVE this list!!!!!!

  • Amielle

    I couldn’t remember which of the links linked to ‘Someone Ate This’ and had to look through the list a couple of times to pinpoint it but !!!! W H Y? And then I saw the salmon and chickpea salad and my faith in humanity was restored. Thank you. 🙂

  • kathryn

    oh man, i could only scroll through about half of that ‘someone ate this’ list before i had to stop. ha. also-just made kombucha for the first time using the kitchn’s guide and it is pretty foolproof. turned out great and actually tastes sort of cidery to me (after the addition of peaches and ginger). probably getting spiked with some bulleit soon.

  • Cathy

    Thank you for the polite post. It’s been a rough week but I will continue to be polite with renewed endeavour despite all that might go on around me. x

  • Brittany B

    How to Be Polite is one of the best things I’ve read in a very long time!

  • Michelle

    Wow! Thank you so much for posting “Meg Jay: Why 30 is not the new 20”

    I turned 25 yesterday, so this message could not have come at a better time! Btw, Happy (almost?) Birthday to you! LEO LOVE!

  • Celeste

    Traci please make Kombucha – I would love to see your process and your creativity in creating new flavors!

  • Celeste

    TracY sorry!

  • Sunny

    I brewed my first kombucha a couple of weeks ago with a scoby from my yoga teacher, and I love it. Summer is a great time with all these fruits in season – I’ve tried peach and blueberry. The Kombucha Brooklyn book is also helpful.

  • tara

    Loved these links! The TED talk is fascinating. That food one made me gag. I totally cried at that video of the son buying his mom a car. OMG.

    I wish I could’ve hugged Robin Williams. I’m so unbelievably heartbroken. I just imagine him feeling so alone. We all loved him so much.

  • Dhanya Samuel

    There are lists and then, there are ‘your’ lists. Absolutely love your picks and my fave this week is the 13 things no one tells you about being a woman. Wow, what a read!

  • Ella

    Buzzfeed is so fantastic, I swear. That page about the gym mishaps is SO TRUE

  • Diane

    Thank you Tracy! I LOVE your Friday lists. I save them for Saturday morning, when I have time to click on and check out all the links and laugh and cry. #3 seriously needed a warning. I’ll save it and refer back to it when I need to suppress my appetite.
    By the way – YOU are amazing! Keep it up.

  • Meg

    The Thought Catalogue list was so on the money, especially number 7: ‘the difference between being nurturing and being a doormat is your Everest’.
    And oh my gosh, the honey roasted peach buttermilk ice cream? LEGIT.

  • Dini

    You make THE best lists. Thanks for making my Mondays (I live in Asia) a little sunnier 🙂

  • Darlene

    Oh my god! I’m making my own kombucha! It’s sooooo easy. Easiest kitchen DIY project ever. 🙂 You can do it.

  • amber | for the love of the south

    Thanks so much for adding me to the list! Much love!

  • Erin

    I make kombucha! I’m on my third batch. It’s delicious and super easy! Next up: flavoring! Also: kombucha cocktails.
