Lovely Internet 2.6.15

1. How Cards Against Humanity managed to parcel out their private island, Hawaii 2.

2. Why #LikeAGirl (and the reaction) is important.

3. Who is throwing a Galentine’s Day party? P.S. I’m going to miss you so much Parks & Rec. So much.

4. My friend Rye is in our local paper talking up bone broth!

5. I’d been listening to this song for months before I actually listened to the words.

6. All of this.

7. I didn’t actually watch the big game but I’m glad Missy is back.

8. Cool and weird!

9. What your love of hot sauce might say about you.

10. I got my advance copy of The No Time to Cook Book, and it looks incredible! I’m really proud of how it turned out- it’s full of step by step guides to help you create quick, healthy, real food meals.

Smoked Chicken Wings

After months of dodging it I finally caught the flu. It was inevitable, of course, since last week a preschooler coughed in my face and everyone both at school and in life has the crud. I have been working on the next installment of Tasting North Carolina and a few other exciting recipes but this week it’s all I can do to lift my head to drink more water kefir and spoon chicken soup into my face. So, I’ll be back with that next week. In the meantime, enjoy some smoked chicken wings- they were a big hit this weekend!

Lovely Internet 1.30.15

1. This may be my minor in Book Arts talking, but paper deserves a prominent role in our lives.

2. A flourishing food sisterhood in North Carolina.

3. Kill the K-Cup before they kill our planet.

4. 29 years ago Roald Dahl wrote about losing his daughter, Olivia, to measles- something that a measles vaccine would have prevented. (also)

5. I grew up eating peanut butter & mayo, PB & M & Banana, and banana and mayo sandwiches. Love for mayonnaise (and sometimes unconventional applications of mayonnaise) are family traditions.

6. Can you imagine being responsible for this repair job?

7. Get outside.

8. I’m trying really hard to be the kind of person who can keep house plants alive.

9. This is the opposite of the person who liked everything for 24 hours. Interesting results.

10. Tomorrow we’re throwing Dan a birthday party (we’ve really been celebrating this one all month, haven’t we?), and I’m thinking these should make their way onto the menu. (and these, of course).

p.s. If you’re celebrating The Big Game this weekend, don’t forget your snack dip.
