    Have you ever tried Inglehoffer Creamy Dill Mustard with Capers? I ate an entire jar in a week. It is crazy good.

    Those DIY Maraschino Cherries look amazing! I pinned them the other day and have since wanted to make them. I truly believe cherries can make nearly anything taste better!

    Thanks for the shout-out Jessica! <3 I'm sort of freaking out over that pizza too–all that basil oil puree! Also, that strawberry tuxedo cake, holy crap.

    Currently crushing on lots of things, but this blueberry sour cream ice cream looks amazzzing: http://www.thetarttart.com/2013/07/blueberry-sour-cream-ice-cream/

    Thank you so much for sharing the how to make friends as an adult. We just moved across country & it’s been 6 months. I am a super outgoing person, while my hubby is not. He works with tons of single people & I work with 12 so it’s been hard because to find new friends. This was perfect timing!

    So I’m back in Houston where I grew up and none of my old friends made it back here after college like I did. I’ve mostly been hanging out with my guy, who is amazing, but lately I’ve been lamenting to him about my lack of lady friends. So of course I read your link above making friends as an adult. Guess what? The lovely lady who wrote it is in Houston – and a lot of people commented saying they’re also in Houston, so let’s all hang out. Guess who put herself out there saying she’d like to meet some awesome Houston women to hang out with? This girl!

    Thanks for sharing the link and helping make connections! I love you even more now, Jessica!

    Thanks for sharing the article about making friends. The last couple of years I’ve done a bit of housekeeping as I’ve come to realize that a good portion of the friendships I had were one sided, toxic, or not worth the drama they were causing. I need some new tribe members and have felt overwhelmed and frustrated at times about how to go about it. The article held lots of great advice but the comments were priceless. Thanks!! xo

    I’ve been addicted to maskcara.com since the first time you linked to it. I made the candy coated sea spray this weekend and it changed. my. life. Seriously! I have super fine, straight hair and this gave me beautiful waves! Love it!
