Our 8 Favorite Instagram Photos This Week

Today was a great week for everyone's favorite photo-based social media platform. It's so refreshing to look at our Instagram without being force-fed greasy turkey shots. Spicy food and Christmas desserts are so much better. And uh...does Starbucks do that latte art?

Don't forget to follow us @foodrepublic and tag us if you see or eat something awesome. These are things we check compulsively.
