Friday Favorites: April 29

April 29, 2011 at 2:35 pm 12 comments

Happy Friday!

Do you know what that means? Yes, the weekend, but also another installment of my Friday Favorites! I’m running short on time because I have special plans after school, so this will be a short post. Thank you for understanding!


If you love food porn, you’ll love this website. Foodgawker is a photo gallery that allows you to visually search and discover new recipes submitted by food bloggers. The editors at Foodgawker select the best of the best of the hundred of submissions they get a day. And do you know what that means? Glorious photos of deliciously amazing, drool-worthy food! In other words, food porn at it’s best. I can literally spend hours on their site looking through photos. I’ve found amazing recipes and blogs through it. 🙂

2. Clif Bars

I love all the products and lines that Clif Bar offers, but lately I’ve been all about the traditional Clif Bars. I love the Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch and Crunchy Peanut Butter. I eat them for lunch sometimes with a big side salad. Yum!

3. Sunny Weather in Boston

<– That’s the temperature right now here in Boston! Love it! I can’t believe it’s warm here. It feels like it was only a few weeks ago that it was snowy and freezing here in Boston. Oh yah, that’s because it was only a few weeks ago. I love how people in Boston can adjust to the weather so quickly. They go from wearing jeans and winter jackets one day and then flip-flops and short shorts the next day. 🙂

But you know what’s even better than this? The fact that, in two weeks, I’ll be enjoying California’s beautiful weather!


Question: What are your Friday Favorites?

I just wanted to give a shout out to all my new readers out there! Thanks for meandering over to my corner of the blog-o-sphere. I’ve been getting a lot of great comments, and I really appreciate it. I love my readers. 🙂 If you have any questions, post requests for me, or anything else, please let me know. I’d love to hear from you!
