It’s Friday, the weather is finally warming up in Salt Lake, and I’m sure you want to know where to find the recipe for these drool-worthy popsicles from Pinch My Salt, so let’s get started talking about fun things I’ve spotted around the web this week!

Fun Thing #1: Lemon Buttermilk Popsicles from Pinch My Salt (via Whipped)

I love buttermilk and I love lemon, so when I saw the Lemon Buttermilk Popsicles that Nicole made at Pinch My Salt, I immediately was hooked. Nicole spotted the recipe for Easy Creamy Lemon Dream Popsicles on Whipped. I don’t have popsicle molds, so I’m trying to figure out what to freeze them in, but I’ll be making a low-sugar version of these soon!

Fun Thing #2: 56 Things to Remember from Gluten Free Goddess
Karina at Gluten Free Goddess writes the way I wish I could, and her latest post 56 Things to Remember is a must read. (It’s also her birthday, so go read the post and send some birthday love.)

Fun Thing #3: Kalyn’s Kitchen Featured on
There are a lot of places around the web that feature food blog recipes, but no one does it with more style and fairness to bloggers than the folks at I’ve had a few recipes featured at Saveur in the past, and this week they featured my Lemon Rice with Red Pepper and Pine Nuts. Thanks Saveur!

Fun Thing #4: The Science Behind the Perils of Sugar via Christine Cooks
I’ve been trying to avoid sugar for quite a few years now, since I know I just feel better when I don’t eat it, but now my friend Christine at Christine Cooks has found a video that explains why sugar is bad for us. Read about Sugar: The Great American Downfall at Christine’s blog, where you’ll find a link to the video.

Fun Thing #5: Weekend Menu Planning Archives at
Since 2006 I’ve been writing about food for, and the last few years I’ve been writing a feature called Weekend Menu Planning. Every Thursday I pick one ingredient or dish, share some photos and recipes from food bloggers, and encourage people to add it to their menu for the following week. This week I’m talking about Homemade Biscuits, but I’ve been writing these posts for a few years now, and the great people at BlogHer have decided to create a Weekend Menu Planning Archives category to help people (and me!) find the posts more easily. The archives is still a work in progress, but check it out if you’d like to see what I’ve been talking about all these years!

Now it’s time to get this weekend started! Tomorrow I’ll be having a big Father’s Day Barbecue with some of my siblings, nieces, nephews, and assorted kids, where we’ll be honoring the great fathers in our family, including my 84 year-old Dad, who is without a doubt The World’s Greatest Father. Happy Father’s Day to all the readers who are dads; hope you’ll have a lot of good food on your special day.

By the way, if you’ve found anything interesting around the web this week, let us know about it in the comments.    If you need just a little more Friday Fun, you can use the label for Five Fun Things on Friday to see fun things I’ve shared on other Fridays!
