  • Candice

    Hi Tracy,

    I’m a new follower, and must say I really like your blog!

    Almost jealous of the pizza addict too, but man that’s a boring food experience. I feel for his fiance! Oh and Paul Rudd was hilarious, I love when people can get so into their own funniness.

    Make it a great weekend chica! Glad I found you site 😉

  • Maryea {happy healthy mama}

    Congratulations on your nomination. Have a great weekend!

  • kat

    If you want English Muffin bread….try this!



  • Aimee @ Simple Bites

    Thanks for the ragu mention, Tracy! And of course I voted for you. Duh. xox

  • Natalia (basmatilime.blogspot.com)

    oh my!!! Ben & Jerry!!! Look at that!!! I have been known of being able of finishing a whole Ice cream tub on my own. They are so difficult to share!!!!
    I hope they take a while to arrive in Spain otherwise I’m doomed

  • Marisa @ Uproot from Oregon

    Thanks for all the awesome links, and for linking to my kale tortellini soup! So good it’s unreal- you are always my inspiration, Tracy!

  • Maria

    Thanks for featuring our French toast. Wish we could get the boys together for breakfast! Someday:) Happy weekend! xo

  • Flower Patch Farmgirl

    Who are you and where have you been all my life?
    I’m in love.

    (also, thanks! safe to assume you have a wild one??)

    • bc in edmond

      who are YOU and where have YOU been? I cried all the way through your post – our daughter is 30 now and Disney trips are still a struggle. even though she will never change, the good news is, WE have changed and become so much better people/parents because of her difficulties. god bless you.

    • Tracy

      he definitely has his moments and I’ve had my challenges with learning how to be the best mom for him and how to be less hard on myself- so I loved your post. I can relate 100% 🙂

  • Christine

    Re: 16

    Why on earth would you want to have a party where the food was bad on purpose??

    • Tracy

      Ha! I think it’s fascinating to see how far we’ve come in the culinary world!

      • Michelle

        I have to agree with 16, there is something fascinating about it.

        I found this: badjellyblog.com a few months ago and binge read the entire thing. Warning though, they do some things to avocado you may find offensive.

  • Shawna Greenway

    Tracy, thank you so much for posting number 2! I’ve printed it out and posted it on my office wall and the fridge so everyone in the family can read and remember this. Jack is only 6 so he won’t be able to read it so it’s ok to have it posted on the fridge. 🙂 Isn’t it nice to know it’s not just your child?!

  • sandra

    you always have the best shots on your I love lists days. This one is spectacular. And I love the link to ways to stop caring what people think – because they don’t really care! Very insightful.

  • Traci

    And I love your lists! Congrats on the nomination, and I love the puddle shot.

  • Lizy Tish

    I just love your lists! I’m totally making that English Muffin Bread, and I loved the baby lamb picture, and the article about what people think was great too. Thanks!

  • Jackie H

    I just want to parrot what Kat said above. That King Arthur Flour recipe for the English muffin bread is AMAZING. It really is the best toast!

    (Although you live in San Francisco and can get real sourdough, so….)

    Let us know if you make it. Curious.

  • Jenny

    I made the English muffin bread last night…Uhhhmazing! It makes the most amazing toast! Thanks for sharing!

  • Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Oh dear lord that retro party was amazing/horrifying. Totally going to do it! & then make the mushroom pasta.

  • Yoshie

    Please say that you have seen Paul Rudd in Overnight Delivery. I know some people think it is not a very good movie, but my best friend & I think it is hilarious (mostly because of him).

    Love your weekly lists!
