It is that time. You may be thinking Girl you totally skipped April. I know this! It's been plaguing me the whole month.  But I didn't forget, so here are my May Five Faves.  

There is a bit of a theme, this time around.  A lot of articles and videos I've read that really stuck out me and inspired me and I hope they inspire you! Onward into June!

SnackChat of the Month



Some knows I that the best part of the squid are the tentacles!  I used to avoid these growing up and opted to eat the head.  I think it was because I thought the suckers were going to latch on to my throat or that they resembled spiders. But know, I know better! 
Cheers!

Bonus April Fave: How I Started My Business: Ovenly


...the energy of the local food businesses—that guy who left law school to smoke meat, the artist who took a risk on a creative pie business, the architect creating ice cream sandwiches—inspired me to seriously consider a career in the field. These people became my heroes. I wanted to emulate them.

I love them!
