Fun Finds Friday

Friday, Friday…gotta get down on Friday! (Ok, so maybe a cheesy reference to Rebecca Black is overdone by now, but I couldn’t help myself.) This week has been a great week for my running. Granted, getting up at 4 a.m. every day to beat the heat starts to take a toll by the end of the week, but it’s worth it. I’ve had some great runs that remind me why I love running. I ran 6.6 miles this morning at the crack of dawn and felt like I could have ran so much more – I love when that happens!
A few weeks ago, I introduced you to a few of my favorite blogs. I thought I’d share a few more this week in case you’re looking for more food and craft inspiration!
Marisa McClellan created Food in Jars which is a site for all things canning! She’s great at providing detailed instructions and helpful photos to show you how to can everything from jams and jellies to sauces and salsas. Plus, if follow her blog, she features some fun giveaways from time to time.
Taylor Takes a Taste is a great resource for learning how to photograph food. Taylor Mathis shows you step-by-step how he creates the look for the photos he posts and explains the process in a way that’s easy for a novice to follow. He’s also a great resource for finding out what the national food day is at any given time!
I always look forward to seeing what Joy at Joy the Baker is up to. She is funny, smart and witty. Plus, I find myself bookmarking her recipes more often than not. She posted a Mango Banana Bread recipe this week that has moved to the top of my “to try” list in the next week or so!
Do you have, or know of, a blog I should follow? I would love to know about it!
So, what’s up with me this weekend? I have a 5K run Saturday morning, babysitting my adorable nephew Saturday evening, the usual household stuff like laundry and grocery shopping on Sunday and maybe an afternoon of sangria and chatting with our great neighbors. What’s up with you?
