Friday Link Love

Bake this peach cake from Clara Persis 
Make this super easy salsa from Smitten Kitchen
Relax by the pool

1. An interesting take on the conflict in the Middle East. I'm by no means an expert on this conflict, I just found the article interesting and enlightening.

2. A faith-based reaction to 50 Shades of Grey. I've never read the book (and don't have plans to), but I get the gist of the plot. This movie isn't technically a response to the 50 Shades of Grey movie, but it's certainly a refreshing plot compared to the sex-driven plot of many rom-coms these days.

 3. Read about the benefits of buying in bulk. Do you buy in bulk? I do occasionally (grains, weird flours, nuts, etc.) and have found it to be a very cost-effective way to grocery shop!

4. Ways to style the crop top. I find the crop top extremely intimidating. To me, it seems like it's only meant for 19-year old sorority girls. But reading this article made the crop top way more accessible! Still, I don't think I'll be taking the plunge and buying one any time soon.
