Sunday Swoon no. 8

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

Since we skipped a week of link love to make these creamy, dreamy whiskey chocolate truffles for Valentine’s day last Sunday, let’s jump right into it! My current faves from around the web this week:

Is a new Polish donut craze taking over?

A q&a with an ice cream queen.

My world is upside down:  store-bought parmesan cheese could actually be… wood.

Millennials love wine. A lot.

Just started watching Michael Pollan’s new food documentary series on Netflix (while on the treadmill, to torture myself).

On using a tilt-shift lens in food photography. Now I desperately want to rent one…

Curious to try this hummus hack.

Loving the flavors in these ahi poke bowls.

and these Thai shrimp in coconut sauce.

Dreaming of long summer days, blueberry picking, and this blueberry coconut cake.

Swooning over pretty in hot pink prickly lady cocktails.

and equally vibrant blood orange and thyme mimosas.

Craving a big bowl of these cabbage ginger noodles.

and this spicy beef noodle soup.

Dying to try these chocolate hazelnut and olive oil buns.

and these gooey blood orange and vanilla bean bars.

Dinner this week: crockpot cashew chicken and crockpot lentil soup.

and finally, homemade animal crackers!!
