HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND!

in links i love,weekend

Some days call for doughnuts with chocolate frosting and sprinkles.

Then, some weeks call for them. That week was this week. Sugary sweet doughnuts laced with milk chocolate that boast a slight crunch from rainbow sprinkles – a childhood favorite + an adult indulgence. Summer is fading into fall, which has meant the end and beginning of things: starting a new semester, finishing freelance projects, planning for Argentina and enjoying the late summer bounty of zucchini, eggplant, onions + tomatoes in the form of French crepes with ratatouille filling.

And reading! I just bought Zadie Smith’s new book “NW” and have been catching up on the Internet. Here’s some good stuff I’ve read lately:

I wrote an article on papalo. It got published. That is awesome.

Mark Bittman wants you to celebrate the farmer, and I couldn’t agree more.

Having a blog existential crisis? Read this piece from Helen Jane. It’s a good reminder not to take your online life so seriously. And more importantly, it made me want to dance.

Dutch Oven No-Knead Herb Bread. I want.

A FREE 7-Ingredients or Less E-Cookbook from the lovely Dana at Minimalist Baker. Let’s be real – who doesn’t love a simple, delicious meal that doesn’t require a cabinet full of spices to make?

Newly obsessed with Adoravel, which has nothing to do with reading but everything to do with chic, inexpensive jewelry. Go now.

Have a deliciously happy Labor Day Weekend all!

Congrats on the article- I read it and it’s great! I want to try that herb, too, I bet I’d like it (since I’m addicted to cilantro and all). Have a great Labor Day weekend, Holly!

Anddddd now I’m drooling for that donut. Mmmmmm. It’s been SO LONG since I’ve had a donut haha. This needs to be remedied soon.

I’m not a doughnut fan. But THAT doughnut- I want to chomp right through the screen!
Just so ya know, I’ve been making your beer-crust pizza every Friday night for the last month. My husband and I each make our own single serve pizzas and use a different beer each time. Any they are always perfect. I have extra dough leftover on purpose, and make pretzels with it!
