Roasted Mushrooms: A Guest Post (and more!)

The Best Roasted Mushrooms

Hi guys! Just popping in real quick to mention a few exciting RP-related things happening elsewhere this week. First off, I have a guest post up over at A Cup of Jo! I made one of my favorite bachelorette dinners for Joanna’s Eating Dinner Alone series. It’s roasted mushrooms with copious amounts of butter and garlic (best soaked up with half a baguette, obv).

Second, I am so flattered to be featured in Shelly’s Currently Lusting series this week! Shelly is one of my favorite food gals, and her blog Vegetarian Ventures is gorgeous and delicious — I was super psyched to know that the feeling is mutual! (P.S. I think being Blogger I Would Most Like To Get A Drink With could be my new favorite compliment.) ;)

And third, totally delighted to be Food & Wine’s Instagram Follow of the Week! (Um, do you guys remember when I didn’t even HAVE Instagram [that was like six months ago] and I totally felt like a “how-do-I-work-this-darned-technology?” old lady when I started using it? Hurray for progress!)

Rewind: Upstate New York

Untitled

Hey guys! So as I mentioned last week, I’ve been spending some time at my parents’ place in upstate NY while they’re away on vacation. It has rained almost every day I’ve been here, but it’s been those perfect kind of rainy days where it’s an even mix of overcast, sunny, and rainy. Just enough to keep the heat down and water the garden so I don’t have to. Since I love being here and I’ve been taking pictures like mad, I thought I’d share some (ok, so maybe a LOT) of them with you.

Guest Post : A Trio of Summer Beverages

A Trio of Summer Beverages

Hey everyone! I am super duper excited to be sharing a guest post over at The Vanilla Bean Blog today. I adore Sarah’s space, and having the chance to occupy it (coupled with the recent unseasonably gross heat wave) inspired some ambitious drink-themed planning. The result was three pretty ridiculously delish drinks. (Also, I shoot with a white background, and I LOVE it. Madness!) So head on over to The Vanilla Bean Blog and check them out. Also, Sarah will be taking a little break this summer, so be on the lookout for lots of other awesome guest posts!

Happy Summer of Fun to Sarah and her family!

Rewind

ramps

Hey guys! I totally meant to get this post up over the weekend, but I wound up with a super-full docket on Saturday between gallivanting around the first summer market, making you all a rockin’ pizza (with ramps, oh yeah), snapping some photos of J’s band in the afternoon, then heading down to NY to visit my parents. To all the mothers out there, and to my mom most especially — Happy Mother’s Day! Being around my mom this weekend as she proudly showed off her giant gardens she planted this past week, it’s hard to believe that only four months ago she was lying in a hospital bed recovering from a mastectomy. I love you, mom, and I am so not surprised that you’re totally kicking stupid cancer’s ass.

Rewind: Easter

sunny morning

Today’s rewind will be short and sweet, because I am exhausted and I have a million things to do to prepare for tomorrow. (Not a good combination!) I had yesterday off, and when I got out of bed at 7:30am, I decided maybe I should straighten up my room a little. I then proceeded to tear apart my entire apartment in an epic fit of spring cleaning. My props are now neatly stacked on an actual shelf. My scarves and sunglasses have been arranged in colorful, rainbow order. Those barely-visible-until-you-stand-on-a-chair cobwebs in the ceiling corners are no more. The entire day flew by. Before I knew it, it was 4:00pm, and I hadn’t paused once. Not for morning coffee. Not for food. Not for Easter shopping (which I had originally planned on doing in the morning). I then devoured a cold, leftover burrito half and washed it down with a beer, and all I wanted to do was take a nap. But I drank an espresso instead, and I just felt weird and crazy. I got up at 6:30am today, despite still feeling rather exhausted (and achy). Then I accidentally taught my cat to high-five this morning and considered just going back to bed, because the day is clearly just going to be downhill from here. But, tomorrow is Easter, and I’m hosting, and I’m psyched! So I just wanted to say hey and give you guys a little run-down of my menu. And I’d love to hear what you’re planning too!
