Friday Faves, February 4th

4 Feb

1 :: This Creme Daisy Applique dress from Top Shop would be great on a date (say, Valentine’s Day?) with a wrap or sweater and tights, but it’ll also transition nicely in to warmer weather.

2 :: Sunday is the Superbowl (in case you didn’t know), so it’s time to start rounding up some recipes for munching (and avoid buying the case of frozen quesadillas). Pioneer Woman’s Beef Fajita Nachos look incredibly tasty and will definitely keep hungry tv-watchers’ appetites at bay.

3 :: I’m loving this fun promo film from House Industries. They own some of my favorite typefaces, along with a bevy of smartly designed objects and posters. The sign painting and lettering shown in this film blows my mind–I don’t know how they do it!

4 :: If I could put just one thing on my Valentine’s Day wish list, it would be this I Love My City print from Judy Kaufmann. Her illustrations are beautiful, and this print is by far my favorite.

5 :: If you’re looking for a fun DIY project to add a little charming fun to your decor, these coffee filter pom poms from Creature Comforts are perfect! Cheap, simple, and easy–they also make great gift toppers.

6 :: The days are slowly starting to get longer, but there’s still lots of evening darkness floating around (even here in the Sunshine State). Say “Goodnight, Moon” with this embroidered wall art from Jenn Pierce. Her embroidered pieces really make me want to try my hand at embroidery!

Friday Faves, November 19th

19 Nov


1 :: Light enough for inside a toasty house, but some nice added warmth for the cool fall breezes, this cottage crochet cardigan from Ruche is a great holiday layering piece.

2 :: Green bean casserole that will wow even your Grandma! Pioneer Woman throws down some holiday deliciousness (and will hopefully beat Bobby Flay).

3 :: Julia Rothman is one of my favorite illustrators, so I really enjoyed this interview she did with Grain Edit. (Also, aren’t those yellow boots lovely?)

4 :: A great hostess gift, this hand-painted herb pod from Yevgenia can be used to store loose tea, sea salt, or any other spices.

5 :: These charming holiday cards from Elie Monge are letter pressed beautifully–the guitar is my favorite part.

6 :: If you’re looking to make a wreath that you can keep around all year, try this wonderful wreath from Pickles. Just change the color of the balls to make it more Christmas-themed (although I love the festive mix of colors).

Spotlight: The Pioneer Woman

The Pioneer Woman

If you haven’t had the pleasure of reading Ree Drummond’s blog, The Pioneer Woman, I envy you. Because the first time I was introduced to her tasty step-by-step recipes, hilarious stories and drool-worthy ranch (the kind with cattle, not suburban neighbors), I was blown away. My friend Erin sent me a link to Ree’s series of posts about how she and her husband met and fell in love (Black Heels to Tractor Wheels) and when I looked up, hours had gone by.

I immediately found a more comfortable chair and got lost for a few more.

Ree's Ranch

Ree is the hilarious, self-deprecatingly confident friend you’d write for yourself in a novel. I have no idea how she finds the time to do the things she does, but I’m so glad she, well, does. Thanks to her blog, I’ve discovered the best way to chop an onion, how to make killer pico de gallo, and what my dream sink looks like (ok, maybe I was better off not knowing that last one).

Dream Sink

Her recipes almost always include a cast of real food characters (despite a cameo now and then from the sugar villain) and they are pretty much fail-proof. Her meticulous step-by-step photos may be too much detail for some, but for me they go a long way towards helping me perfect my cooking techniques.

Tequilla Lime Chicken

Some of my favorites:

Fresh Corn and Avocado Salsa

Potato Bundles

Crispy Yogurt Chicken

Rosemary Sweet-Roasted Acorn Squash Wedges

Caramelized Onion and Prosciutto Pizza

…and that’s just to get you started. Go check out The Pioneer Woman and enjoy!
