Friday Faves – foodiecrush

Hello friends and cheers to a Happy Friday!

High West and Savor the Summit Park City Utah 2018 |

So while the kids have been out of school for a few weeks, and my dahlias have already gone through their first bloom, and my ONE FRIGGING tomato plant is already infested with aphids and is likely going to die, yesterday was actually the first day of summer.

So happy summer everyone!!

This past week has been a whirlwind. I keep telling myself, “Just get through this week and then things will slow down…” and then it’s the next week and my wheels are still spinning but I’m not making much headway. I need to read this again.

I Love a Good Staycation

While I may feel stuck in second gear, at least this past week has been full of amazing family time with my sister and her fam here for a summer visit, Father’s Day, plus my dad’s birthday and a staycation for all of us in Park City, UT where the highlights included:

Your FoodieCrush Recipe Faves

This week I shared recipes for my go-to chicken marinade and a pasta salad you’ll want to make all summer long.

Here’s a few things you guys made from FoodieCrush this week, too:

If you make something from the blog, share it on Instagram with the hashtag #foodiecrush or #foodiecrusheats for an opp for me to re-share.

But enough about me, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves!

Whoa! I wonder if people really do this in the video below??!!! (at least it’s a nice feature for my fave Skinnytaste cookbook.)

Chris Pratt’s wise words…can we love him any more than we already do??!

One of my goals this year is to be on time, and I know I need be better at #5.

I’ve been reading this book and finding some actual value in it,


I’m considering doing what he did, too. I wonder if I’m disciplined enough to make it happen.

How to use your mind to change your health. Totally good advice.

Love this excerpt: “I’ve decided I’d rather be authentically awkward than exhaustedly charming,” from: I’m way cooler on the internet than I am in person, and it gives me anxiety.

What??!! Instagram TV! This could get interesting…

Summer TV is the worst, so I’m ready for the next season of this show. Killer line up this year!

The year of the pivot, and actually making one. I like the sound of this.


Totally listening to this Will.I.Am podcast thanks to her rec. Oprah, you rule.


Listening in: How meditation and mindfulness can add more REAL love and happiness to your life.

These scones make me want to bake more scones. Imagine that !

This burger with that mayo should be this girl’s dinner.

This rosé sangria all summer long.

These pork chops got me ready for grillin’!

Instant Pot hummus. Get it.

And, this Instant Pot Hawaiian chicken. Alooooohhhaaa!

Liking this twist on Shepherd’s Pie, a lot.

This pizza is totally adorable.

And if you’re making Lobster Rolls at home, here you go. 

Since I haven’t yet done my summer bucket list, I can at least start a FUN summer project list. Good ideas here. 


21 simple things to do when you’re bored instead of surfing the internet.

I really like the casual relaxed vibe going on with this list of summer wardrobe essentials.

How to get flights for free. I love these types of tips. Now, if I’d ever use them…

These pants would be perfect for traveling in. Or lounging. Or going out. Hell, for everything!

I’m looking for some good, retro, rock ‘n roll band tshirts, but not heavy metal dumb ones. Anyone have ideas on where to find besides Urban Outfitters?

This top makes me feel like a teenager again. MWAAA!

My sister got herself this jacket over the weekend and like any sister would, I want to steal it from her!

Luckily, I have this one I recently purchased that I like just as much. So there!

And that’s all she wrote! Have a great weekend and stay safe friends.
