Friday Food Finds #14- Buried Alive

GRRR. So I was seriously hoping that I was going to be wrong with this whole buried-underneath-the-rubbles-that-are-midterms. Will someone come pull me up?

And bring a forklift.

Or a shovel.

Both would suffice.

Umm… Moving on.

A good blogger would push through and write up a fantastic post (or better yet plan in advance and have one all ready to go). Today I am not that blogger though and while I have a few recipes that I would love to share, I really don’t want to worry about getting all of the formatting and picture editing perfect. And you wouldn’t want me to forget an essential ingredient like the flour that holds everything together, right?

I thought so.

Instead, I’m going to let the spotlight shine on some bloggers who DO have their act together with another Friday Food Finds!

Cashew Caramel Apples

For some reason growing up I only ever ate caramel apples in public at the fair. This would have saved a lot of teeth-picking embarrassment.

Processed with VSCOcam

Blueberry Muffin Bites

Blueberry muffins are my favorite type of muffin ever. A no bake, healthy version that is quick and easy is a dream come true.


Homemade Twix Bars

I’ll admit that I’m not a big fan of Twix candy bars, but I know some people in my family who would love to have me make this for them.


Chocolate Bark

This how-to is super fast and simple. It’s also really customizable so you can include whatever add-ins you want.


And… here are some links that I think you should check out as well!

5 Ways to Deal with Fat Days

There’s no denying that we all have them, so we might as well learn to get through them with the least amount of tears as possible.


Masking Issues with Macros

This has been on my mind a lot lately. I won’t say which way I am on the subject right now, but I love the discussion going on.


Why I Stopped Posting Recipes

You know me and my love for recipes; however, I think this post is great in getting us to think about why we post what we do.


How We Are Adjusting

No matter what stage of life you are in, this post is a must-read on why communication is so important.


Think Before You Judge

We all need to do this.


Also, just because I want to make you smile, these are my top Buzzfeed reads of the week!

“Brides Throwing Cats” Is The Wedding Tumblr You Didn’t Know You Needed

My favorite professor, being a cat-lover, posted this link of Facebook.


17 Reasons You Wish Giles From “Buffy” Was Your Dad

Giles just always knew the right things to say and how to say them as intelligently as possible.


The Guy Who Did Rebecca Black’s “Friday” Made A New Song Called “Chinese Food” And It’s So Embarrassing

I love Chinese Food as much as the next person and even I can’t stand watching this video (the Panda Bear is just too much to take).


This Is The Most Over-The-Top Wedding Proposal Of All Time Ever

While I had to fast forward through a few parts because of the above mentioned midterm studying, I still teared up. Future husband take note.


Five minutes until my blogging cut off point so I’m going to wrap this up. Look for new recipes next week (I see some more cinnamon roll recipes in the future! 😉 ).

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the cookbook giveaway that I posted on Monday! If you didn’t get the chance yet there are five ways to enter and you have until Sunday night.

Also, I just got permission to share ANOTHER recipe with you all from ANOTHER vegan cookbook (my meat-loving friends may groan, but my allergic foodie friends are probably extremely happy right now 🙂 ). I’m joining forces with BenBella Books once again to share a chocolate chip cookie recipe from Lindsay at the Happy Herbivore’s upcoming cookbook Happy Herbivore Light and Lean. It’s part of her pre-blog tour so no cookbook review yet, but like I said, I do get to share the cookie recipe.

In addition, I’m able to ask Lindsay a few questions which I have to send to her by Monday. To make the interview more interesting I’d like to get your input on what you want to know! Everything is fair game and I will pick a few to have answered. Thanks a ton! 😀


No questions for today except for those coming from YOU on what you want me to ask Lindsay.

And let me know what you think about all of the links I shared today!

  1. Ahh…good luck with your exams! I remember how stressful it is. It feels like you cross one thing off of your list, only to have 3 more added on. It’ll pass! Just keep your head up as best you can and make sure you get enough sleep 🙂

    Also…I now want to get married (again), so that I can be a cat throwing bride! 😀

    • I haven’t had a chance to make them yet, but they haven’t left my mind 🙂

      Katie’s story was actually a little hard for me to read because of HOW true it really was… I had quite a few self-reflecting moments while reading it. But you’re right- her honesty is refreshing and I really appreciated it!

    • It went by in a flash thank goodness. Well, looking back now it seems like it did. During the week of exams though, not so much 😦

      Cashew caramel apples are new to me too! I’ve only ever had just plain caramel apples before. The apples really don’t taste as well though. I’d never thought about it before but I agree completely. I wonder if the apple just doesn’t taste as sweet compared to the topping? Or they just think they can get away with subpar apples? Lol.

    • Of course! I really like the idea of adding in different things like nuts and dried fruit.

      Thank goodness that week is over! Not that my teachers act like they realize midterms are done though. Haha. We are still being bombarded with quizzes and reports!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing my post; I truly appreciate that! Good luck with your midterms; you are smart and capable, and I know you can get through them:) I am looking forward to the upcoming recipe!

  3. Good luck with your exams. Say a prayer — you’ll get through them. I love all the links you shared. What delicious treats, forthcoming discussions, and fun kitties. 🙂

  4. If you find a forklift please bring one over to my and work is a little overwhelming. At least it is Friday!! 🙂

  5. So many wonderful links, so little time. At least I don’t have mid terms to deal with, although I’m currently on a cooking frenzy for the man who does. Very much like your family, I want you to make those homemade Twix bars and then let me come taste test them.
    Good luck with your studies. Just think in a week, you’ll be living the good life and taking it easy. For a short time anyway.

    • I hope your husband’s midterms went alright! I’m sure the brain food was a welcomed distraction in study breaks.

      You predicted it precisely. Lol. Two days of “easy” and then it was like midterms never happened and my teachers were back at it.

  6. Hope this finds you taking some well deserved time off from those crazy amounts of studying (that is not something I miss about school for sure, though I feel your pain having just taken the test I’ve been studying for for months on Friday!)

    Moving on you shared some amazing treats and some even more amazing sounding posts, good thing I set aside a bit chunk of time to catch up on all my reading tonight because you just gave me so much more good stuff to dig into 🙂

    I hope you are keeping your head up as you make your way through, and seriously treating yourself to a little love when you’re done!

    • Congratulations again on passing that big test! At least mine were relatively small in comparison.

      I’m glad that you liked some of the posts that I shared. I spent a lot of my breaks in between studying reading those 🙂

      Not much down time after the exams but I’ve definitely taken your advice and “treated” myself to some more sleep. Lol.

  7. Oh my goodness all that food looks amazing. Homemade Twix bars sounds like Satan in the kitchen. (Meaning that I’ll succumb to temptation and eat all of them. SO good!) I hope you had a marvelous weekend!
