Good good links #109

Hi there from the ketchup-hater! <- you guys really picked up on that one despite it not being the point of my post ;).

If you felt hurt by my dislike of certain condiments I hope I can reinstate peace by sharing some good good links with you. Sounds good? Great! Looking at the posts I’d collected at the end of this week I noticed that fall apparently bring back my longing to try new recipes because there are a lot of them. But everybody likes food so I feel you’ll be okay with that. Before scrolling down to the last category, though, I highly recommend taking a look at the other amazing posts from this week. too.

Have a wonderful first Sunday of fall!
