homemade pop tarts I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? Thus, given my proximity to concrete-like materials you’d think I have been better prepared for the texture of the one I purchased from the vending machine in the basement of my freshman dorm (not at 4 a.m. or anything, either, nope, not this angel!). 3 Ultra-Satisfying Vegetarian Fall Soup Recipes Image via: Sneakerdog Every year, when it starts getting cold, I crave soups and stews packed with greens and garlic.
