Things I'm loving...


Picture 6

Kinfolk Magazine, a gorgeous new publication that features the work of some of my favorite bloggers. It’s simple, uncontrived and incredibly beautiful.

This popsicle mold. Is that not the most perfect popsicle shape?

And this Paletas book to go with it.

This pressed leaf ring. Prettiest ring I’ve ever seen.

Gorgeous blogs, some new to me, others old favorites.

okra

Okra, one of my favorite summer foods. If you cut it into strips, dip it in egg, then in a mixture of breadcrumbs & paprika (and a little salt & pepper), then bake it at 400 for about 15 minutes, you get a delightfully crunchy snack, and a little bit healthier than the normal deep fried preparation.

The most perfect tablecloth ever?
I think so.


So tell me, what’s caught your eye lately?

  1. I can't even tell you how much I'm loving Kinfolk. AND I just purchased that very popsicle mold. Agreed: it's classic and the perfect shape.

  2. I'm Lisa Warninger's intern right now and she is one of the contributors to Kinfolk. I feel so lucky to be around such talented individuals.

    And I have been DYING to get that Paletas book. Perfect summertime treat if you ask me!

  3. I've been reading your blog for a bit...each time I come, I never fail to swoon. Food photography is what I hope to specialize it and yours is just stunning. I hope one day I can be half as good as you! And I love Kinfolk. So beautiful.

  4. Super-inspired by Kinfolk right now. I'm loving the idea that things don't have to be perfect (regarding entertaining) to be beautiful. I think okra rocks (I grew up in the south, though). I'm using the book Canning for a New Generation by Liana Krissof for inspiration in preserving summer produce right now.

  8. I'm loving that table cloth! Eco friendly textiles are the way to go. I've actually never seen okra before. Maybe because I live in the northeast?

  22. Nice list! I can see myself pouring a nice chocolate milk concoction into that popsicle mould. Glad to know I'm not the only person 'into' tablecloths ..

  23. Can't wait to find the magazine. I love your photographs so I'm figuring if you find the magazine inspiring, I'll love it too. And yes, Great tablecloth!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I found your blog through twitter, and i fell in love with your blog! It is so beautiful and inspiring. I am already looking forward to your new post!

    By the way, I love baking okra as well! I usually sprinkle either curry powder, or old bay spice, but I will try paprika next time :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. hi there. hhmmm I also an okra lover ever! but I never tried dipping it in an egg, then in mix it with breadcrumbs & paprika and then bake it?never heard of that even with the recipes I've read from different blogs. Is it delicious?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was not to the okra born (don't think I had it until I hit my thirties, actually), but have grown to love it, small and crisp. Sometimes I fry it Indian style, sliced, salted, and spiced with brown mustard seeds and coriander. YUM! Last week, I tossed it in olive oil and salt, and simply threw it on the grill (in a basket), to brown and blister. So good.

    This egg-battered oven version is new to me, but it's heading on to my list of summer tastes to try. Thanks!

  27. I love Kinfolk, too!

    And, as for that table cloth, I just bought an almost identical one plus a runner from LinenMe, a European company. It was expensive, but so beautiful that I felt it worth the splurge.

    Check it out, I think you'll like the pairing.

  28. Man, I ate so much of the Paletas while working in Mexico a few years ago. They were so good! It was summer time, hot and humid so these somewhat healthy things were a lifesaver! Thanks for the link!!!

  36. Worry is the fear we manufacture; it is a choice. Conversely, true fear is involuntary; it will come and get our attention if necessary. But if a parent or a child feels fear constantly, there is no signal left for when it’s really needed. Thus, the parent who chooses to worry all the time or […]

  38. Be careful when storing all your jewelry together. The right jewelry box that has separate compartments, hooks and holders to keep the pieces apart is the best choice. Don’t just box all the pieces together in a pile. Not only will your necklaces get all tangled up, you risk damaging all your fragile and fine jewelry pieces.
