Friday Faves – foodiecrush

Hello and happy Friday!

Linguine and Clams

This week we boarded a big bird and found ourselves in Venice, Italy to meet up with our Smudge of Love and her BFF who’ve been gap year traveling through Europe for the past two months. Can I tell you how amazing it was to see her again?? And now to spend the next two weeks finishing out their European travel goals? Not to mention eating ALL the good food. All of it I tell you! If you’re interested in following along, I’m sharing over on my Instagram stories.

But now, it’s time to get into this week’s Friday Faves. Have a great week friends! I know I will.

Venice, Italy is all about seafood, so naturally, I had to try authentic pasta with clams. It was amazing and made me want to get home and make my own linguine con vongole recipe as soon as I do.

Wow, this woman blows my mind.

This artist used artificial intelligence to see what some celebs would look like today if they were still living. The Princess Di image gave me chills.

This SNL sketch was so good. You have to watch it.

A really cool app for organizing your recipes.

The only 3 salty, spicy, tangy snacks for a party you need (I agree these are a hit every time, and require zero effort). I love this approach—you just want something that will “wake up your tastebuds.” Win win.

This vegetarian dish looks delish.

This rigatoni is melty, cheesy, baked pasta perfection.

The ideal cozy Sunday supper.

My soft and cakey pumpkin chocolate chip cookies would be the perfect weekend bake for you.

These Brussels sprouts fritters look so yummy and crispy.

Craving this slurp-able soup like whoa.

This fall spin on these rice krispie treats is brilliant.

One of my favorite types of cake.

How freaking cool is Robert Downey Jr.’s home?

Lulu and Georgia is having a huge sale! I’m loving this pretty vase.

This bag is the perfect size, stylish, and affordable.

I love the neckline of this sweater.

I’m guaranteed to have the sweetest dreams in this super cozy pj set that’s now on my wish list.

If you’re a parent, you should put this docuseries on your radar. It looks beautiful.

And this movie looks so good. But I might need to read the book first.


This book is next on my to-read list, and I’m excited. Have you read it?

And that’s all for this week. I’m off to Florence to eat all the bolognese! Have a great weekend!
