    #4…I do have a child in the house, and I bought half the store of Buy Me Brunch tee’s. There are worse things, right 🙂

    Happy Weekend, Tracy!

    I am so tickled by that interview with Cary Elwes. Can you even imagine re-watching that movie now and seeing AH-NOLD as the giant? That movie is such a precious piece of film history.

  • Jessica Rodarte

    I also have kids in the house, but those tees? Want. At what point do my kids get to know the real me? 😉
    It was very cool to see you link to my blog for making your breakfast French bread pizza. (Delicious!) The Greek pizza is next. Thanks for the inspiration!

    SEX AND THE CITY FOR LIFE! i watched some this week and started with the last season and my mind was blown because the series ended almost 10 YEARS AGO. oyoyoy. judging by the thunderstorms brewing right now i think this weekend will hold a sex and the city marathon for me too 🙂 and thanks for the marzipan challah shoutout, tracy!!!!!

    Tracy! Last weekend, I had a “Shutterbean Weekend” as I made two of your recipes. The Salted Caramel Popcorn Bars and the Goat Cheese Guacamole. They were both big hits with my peeps. In the interest of being honest, I was too scared to make my own caramel sauce (which would’ve been the more cost effective route) so I snagged some Williams-Sonoma salted caramel sauce on sale. So good!

    And now thanks to you I’m addicted to making popcorn with Coconut Oil. . .

    • Tracy

      I totally get that! Caramel can be intimidating! It burns easily if you’re not paying attention. Glad your company enjoyed the recipes! xoxoxo

  • Kate

    I’ve just pre-ordered Cary Elwes’ book! Love “The Menu.” 🙂

  • Leah Reich

    You are an absolute peach of a human. Thanks for the love (and thank you too Kate!). <3

  • Beverlily

    I’m a phenomenal parent. Do you believe it?!

  • tiffany han

    So thrilled to be included in your friday list, Sweets! I can’t wait to interview YOU for the show!! xxoo

  • Ella

    Nutrition Stripped is one of my favorite blogs, I ‘m so glad you featured it! This was a great roundup and I can’t wait to listen to the new podcast this weekend 🙂

    Holy moly, I love #15! I’m always wondering if I’m undermining myself with the words I use. I say “maybe” a lot. I say “I think…” instead of just getting to the point. And I try to be careful of it, too– I like being agreeable, but sometimes I go too far and end up sounding unsure of myself. I don’t remember myself saying “actually” in recent days, but I’ll be taking it off the list of words I use the next time I’m pitching an idea.

  • Katie @ The Surly Housewife

    I need all the shirts!! And those photobombs – I’m dying!! Have a great weekend 🙂

  • Jeannette

    oh my god, I laughed so much! No 6: real name Kat, on the cup it says meow…

  • Jessica @ Living La Vida Holoka

    Wow. I actually didn’t know a lot of the facts in that SATC post! That shocks me since I’ve seen each episode (and movie) numerous times!

    Hi Tracy. We tried your Turkey and Pepper Panani last week and it was fabulous and already has 100+ repins. We rate the internets most popular recipes to see if they live up to the hype. Some do not, but yours did! It even won a rare Golden Chefs Hat Award from my co-taster. Just thought we’d let you know!
