Brown Butter Pasta [Project Foodie]
This is the first time in my life that I’ve probably ever been this excited about fall. I think that’s the “Seattle” in me though because living back there, summer was never enough. Now I’m looking forward to dressing in layers, Thanksgiving (though I’m not sure what my plans are yet) and more importantly all the fall themed foods and drinks we’ll be having. Here are just a few of my favorites.
It’s always during the fall and winter months that I find myself craving pasta. There’s something about a lot of carbs that makes you feel really warm and full. There’s no better feeling than that, right? I love the taste of brown butter which is featured in the pasta above and the idea of cracking an egg over it.
I recently have been contemplating moving up to San Francisco. BIG CHANGE. In addition to gaining a similar experience that I had when I used to live in downtown Seattle, I will also be inheriting a really upsetting commute. It has been a difficult decision to make and I’m actually still in the process of making it. However, as much of a hassle as it is to move, there’s something really refreshing about starting over. In some ways, it’s a clean slate. After two years living in the same place, maybe this is a good opportunity to try something new or maybe… it just isn’t the time yet. One thing that I would be excited for about this move though is revamping my bedroom. For as long as I have known since I was growing up, my bedroom has always been a sacred space. It’s the home within a home and these days I’ve been pinning lots of bedrooms on Pinterest that ere towards a more minimalistic vibe and happen to be completely whited out. I’ve heard that winding down in spaces like these are better for your mind and for your soul. In the past I lived in a studio so I didn’t have a chance to decorate my bedroom exactly the way I wanted it and previous bedrooms have been all over the place. Here are a few pins that I’m gaining inspiration from:
Surprise Biscuits [Vodka & Biscuits]
This past Sunday, I found myself doing something totally outside of the norm – having two back-to-back brunches! Where do I put it away? I’m still wondering about that answer, myself. At our first place, Stable Cafe, I had the “egg in the hole” with bacon and brie cheese. YUM! Now if any of you remember, this used to be a meal that Veronica and I would make for dinner about once a week or so. It was so easy and cheap to make, but now when you go to places in the city you have to pay 8 bucks for it! We call this fancy brunch. I noticed that for awhile I’ve been saving some pretty unconventional breakfast recipes to my Pinterest board lately so here are a few that I thought I would share. Enjoy!
Five Pie S’mores [Tablespoon]
Hey y’all! Happy National S’mores Day! It didn’t make sense to not have a post about this highlighting some of our favorite s’mores recipes so that’s exactly what we’re doing. I thought it would be pretty challenging to come up with five different pins, but then I remembered how long I’ve actually been using Pinterest and how many possible things you can make with s’mores and how I’ve probably already saved them. You’re welcome. Realistically though, it’s hard to highlight all things s’mores so we’re just trying to stay in the general theme. Hope that’s okay!
It may be National Ice Cream Sandwich Day, but ice pops are having a serious moment this summer! I’ve been saving recipes for ice pops to my Pinterest board since I can remember, but lately, they’ve been popping up more and more! Not only do they look delicious and come in a wide variety of flavors, but they’re the ultimate summer treat and a modern upgrade to the popsicles we used to buy at the grocery stores way back when. Here are just a few of my favorite recipes below. Maybe you’ll try them out? Let me know what you think!
