Sunday Swoon: Weekly roundup of recipes and links from around the web, via

Happy weekend! If you happen to be snowbound, I hope you’ve properly stocked up on blizzard essentials and are hunkering down with all kinds of cozy comfort food (like the creamy goat cheese polenta we made this week). I will be busy testing Valentine’s day recipes. Probably smudged with chocolate. Tough gig, I know…

After an extended hiatus, Sunday Swoon – my short lived weekly roundup of internet links and swoon-worthy recipes – is coming back. You asked for it in the reader survey, it’s been on my mind for awhile, and I’m excited to get back to it. So, let’s keep the link love going with a few of the things I’m reading/loving/craving from around the web this week >>>

For those of you still equally obsessed with the Making a Murder case, an update (with spoilers!).

Inspiration to be kinder to ourselves every day. The little things.

We should probably start with cookies for breakfast.

Also wishing I could dive into a batch of these chewy oatmeal cookies right about now.

Or maybe homemade Samoa Girl Scout cookies? Things are getting dangerous…

Busting out the spiralizer to try this whole wheat and zucchini noodle pasta.

Loving this seasonal twist on yogurt with fresh fruit.

Super intrigued by this vibrant saffron ice cream.

I could eat these gorgeous garlic and spice roasted carrots all winter long.

Thinking about a million and one seasonal riffs on this quinoa and kale protein salad.

Dying to try these beef bulgogi bowls.

and these pretty clementine cream sodas. Bringing me back to childhood, in the best way.

Loving the color of these balsamic and honey roasted beets.

and this radish-pomegranate pico de gallo.

Because we can never have enough chocolate… these chocolate coconut almond bars.

There you have it, my favorite links & things of the week. Tell me what you’re currently cooking/loving in the comments below! And for more fun, follow along on facebook or instagram.
