Reading List Ducks

There have been some great posts catching my eye in the blogosphere as of late. Time to share the link love!

1. Love this video of Pentatonix singing “Somebody That I Used To Know.”  

2. What is the one food that will change people’s lives when they start making it at home? My vote: mayo. Though I need to give these crackers a shot! And perhaps give sandwich bread another chance. 

3. Apparently there is a word for how I eat produce: Scorpacciata.

4. One of my close friends from high school made + designed this chair.  How awesome is that?

5.  How national food holidays became a thing.

6.  I really like the idea of these little food doodles.

7.  Elise has some great tips for taking everyday photos.

8. How to make the perfect chocolate chip cookies.

9.  In praise of the clunky, non-newsy headline.

What’s on your reading list this week?

    “Somebody That I Used To Know” is really beautiful, I do love listening with it… Great!

    I love the Pentatonix video, too, and I’ll show it to my kids later today. (We’re all fans.) In my next life I want to be a slinky a capella singer who concentrates solely on notes in the minor keys.

    Thanks for including me here, Julie. You are kind, and I like you.

      My husband was an a capella singer in college– he and his group serenaded me on our first Valentine’s Day, just a few weeks after we started dating. It was one of the first things that made me start to fall in love with him! Needless to say, we are big a capella fans.

      And I like you too, and look forward to seeing you in Seattle next month.

    A great rendition of a very good song. Cool! Plus the tips for taking pictures are awesome. Thanks so much! Now, I’ll be playing this video at least 5x a day. 🙂
