Welcome to The Friday Buzz, our roundup of all good things, good advice, good feelings. It’s the happy hour of blog posts! Up this week: Skippy Love, The Moth Podcast, a Caramel Sauce Showdown, and more! Grab a bucket of popcorn and read up!
My house is all decked out for Halloween, I’ve baked 1,294 batches of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I’m obsessed with this fall candle which I’ve been burning every day for the past few weeks, and I’m ready to make a batch of caramel apples dipped in white chocolate and cinnamon and sugar. I’ve even turned on my fireplace a few times, so I think it’s safe to say that FALL IS IN THE AIR and I’m definitely not mad about it!
Before I start rambling on too much, the Simply Recipes Team has some crazy fun things to share with you. Let’s get on with it, shall we?
OUR FAVORITES FROM THE WEEK
- Skippy Love – Megan declares that there’s certainly a time and place for Skippy peanut butter! Particularly straight from the spoon. She’s in love.
- Sodium Girl – If you’re ever in need of low-sodium recipes, check out Sodium Girl or you can find her cookbook here. Her recipes are ah-mazing.
- The truth about lemons – I found this article on lemons not being vegan and was intrigued! What do you think about this?
- The Moth – Summer introduced this podcast to the team and we’re all hooked. Bring on the tissues.
- Corn Stool – Here’s something you never knew you needed…. until now. Looks like we know what Emma wants for Christmas!
- Caramel Showdown – Summer is kind of in love with this caramel sauce right now and Carrie is crushing on this one. Sounds like a taste test is in order!

READER COMMENT OF THE WEEK
Sher32 left a lovely comment on our Swedish Meatballs…
Fantastic! I have made these three times now, in 5 weeks. I had a recipe years ago and remembered that it included Holland House white cooking wine and dried onions so the last 2 times I prepared this I sauteed 2 Tablespoons grated onion, 2 Tablespoons dried onion and I poured in 1/3 cup of cooking wine and let cook a couple minutes, right before I added the beef stock. I love it both ways but do think that the wine adds some zing to the sauce. When I use wine I also cut the sour cream in half. Thank you so much!!! Best Swedish meatballs recipe I have found in 15 yrs.
Three times in 5 weeks? W-O-W!
Cheers to fall finally arriving!
