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.

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.

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.

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!

Friday Confession: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIXLHtg2Btk]

I’m starting this post in the midst of a train of thought. If you perceived some of my previous Friday confessions as being a little out there, maybe you should just back away now. Prepare yourself. Brace the nearest stationary object. And settle in for a bumpy ride.

stay-go-ern

Although I kid, I’m actually very mentally torn right in this instant. I guess that’s sort of my defense mechanism. Skunks spray a bottle of toxic perfume whenever they get scared (thank goodness that’s not the case!) and instead I make cooky jokes.

stay-go-sarcasm

So, what has gotten me all up in a frantic tizzy? (Note to self: Look up tizzy later to make sure that it doesn’t have some alternate, offensive meaning that may be off-putting to readers). Well, remember that internship interview that I had a few weeks back? I briefly mentioned it in my WIAW post, and… I got it.

And that’s a good thing. No doubt about it, being a freshman and being offered an internship like this is an incredible opportunity. However, there are a few things that I really really can’t get past.

Like the fact that it’s three hours away.

And the fact that I won’t be able to see my friends or family much over the summer.

And the fact that I won’t know anyone there.

And…

I just don’t know.

It’s scary when you’re such a decision-based person like me. Of course I’ve written out the pros and cons list. (In case you are wondering, it equated to an overwhelming ratio of pros to cons).

You see where I’m conflicted, right?

Now let’s add in another little game-changer, shall we?

Today I was offered another job.

“What? Another one?! That’s great!” (At least… I assume that’s what you all are thinking. Maybe). This one is close to home, but it pays a lot less and is basically all labor-oriented. It won’t help me exercise my mind or expand my business skills. It won’t give me the chance to network for future career opportunities or teach me good communication skills. Basically I’ll just become a very good box-packer (which could be considered a good skill in itself to have for all future moving expeditions… Eeep. There I go again with the (…)’s and sarcastic responses).

What it all boils down to when making this decision is choosing what I feel is best for me. I hate it, but deep down I know that the far away internship is what I should be doing.

stay-go-future

I HATE WHEN I KNOW WHEN I’M RIGHT, BUT I DON’T WANT TO BE RIGHT.

I want to be blind, uninformed, a skeptic, stuck in my ways.

I want to stay true to my homebody nature and be at peace in my own bed this summer.

But I don’t think I will.

I think I’m going to call that company back and accept this amazing opportunity that I’ve been presented. No regrets… Or at least, that’s what I’m crossing my fingers and toes to the bloody grips of death for (Whoa. I think just a “hoping for” probably would have sufficed there. No need to get graphic!).

stay-go-work

When I started this post I planned on writing the first part NOW, and the second part after I made my final decision. But in typing this all out I think I’ve ultimately arrived at my final decision.

For better or for worse, here goes nothing.
