Tuesday Tastings :: Asian Sesame Chicken Salad

A Chinese chicken salad is one of those things that if I spot it on a restaurant menu, I’ll probably order it. There’s something about the crunchy cabbage, creamy avocado and bright taste of cilantro that makes it one of my favorite flavor combinations. I’ve had my go-to version that I’ve made at home for… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Etched in Stone

There’s an old French proverb that says, “Write injuries in sand, kindnesses in marble.” Such a lovely way to express the idea that, while negative thoughts and emotions slip from memory, we should keep the gracious acts of others front and center in our hearts. There’s nothing that conveys permanence better than marble (just take… read more

Weekend Notes

Happy Easter weekend, lovelies! Hope yours have all gotten off to a great start. Anyone hosting a big meal for family or friends? We’re headed to Adam’s parents house for Phoebe’s first real Easter egg hunt (last year she wasn’t walking yet, so…) I’m bringing a big salad as my contribution to the meal, but… read more

Mother’s Day Brunching for a Cause

A few months ago, I met Christy Turlington and got to hear her own birth story, as well as the story behind the birth of the nonprofit she founded, Every Mother Counts.

Even if you’re not the one hosting Easter brunch, you could definitely win points for “best guest of the year” by offering to bring a refreshing cocktail that kicks off the festivities. Sure, you could supply OJ and bubbly for mimosas without complaints… or you could really wow ‘em by bringing just a few ingredients to whip up these… read more

Camille Styles Entertaining :: Now On Pre-order!

It’s felt a little like the days leading up to Christmas morning around here as I’ve waited anxiously to show you guys the first real shot of my book… and announce that it’s officially on pre-order! It seems so surreal to think back to just over a year ago when I announced that I was… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Build-Your-Own Tartines

There’s this adorable French bistro in Austin called Blue Dahlia, and I love to meet friends there for a late lunch or a glass of wine to sample a couple of their tartines. Since this month is all about getting outside and soaking up the spring sunshine, we’ve had picnics on the brain: which foods… read more

Weekend Notes

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend so far! I made a quick trip to Birmingham last week to visit the Southern Living, Coastal Living and Cooking Light magazine HQ, which was a completely amazing experience thanks to the many lovely and welcoming staffers I met there who epitomized southern hospitality to the fullest extent. Got home… read more

How to :: Have the best wine country trip ever

You may have caught on my Instagram last week that Adam and I took a romantic little wine country getaway (hosted by Treasury Wine Estates) that was so relaxing and out-of-this-world delicious. I’ve been to Napa Valley a few times before, and on each trip, I pickup a few more tips on how to maximize the experience: where… read more
