Entertaining with :: Erin of Apartment 34

You guys probably know lifestyle blogger Erin Hiemstra as a fashion expert and interiors maven from her fab blog Apartment 34…but I happen to know her as one of the sweetest and smartest gals around, and I’m thankful that she’s become one of my dearest friends over the last couple of years. I’ve been dying to feature her brand new San Francisco loft and inimitable entertaining style here on the blog, and today’s the day! Erin invited us into her home to celebrate a new ritual that she and her husband Chris have instituted, and it couldn’t be more perfect for this month since it involves (a) cooking at home (so much healthier!) and (b) spending quality time connecting with the people you love. Click through the gorgeous images shot by Michelle Drewes to read all about it.

Entertaining with Erin, Apartment 34 | Camille Styles

From Erin: One of our New Year’s resolutions was to cook at home more, so we’ve instituted a new Friday-night date night at home (when we’re too tired to go out anyway!). While I’m usually the cook, we actually took a risotto-making class together so this is one dish that’s a team project. And since it takes a little over an hour to make, it lends itself to lots of good conversation time!

    My favorite is her entertaining style in 5 words or less. I second that. Wine makes everything better any time. Cheers!!!!

      Ditto, I want to adopt it for myself! After all, at the end of a long week, there’s really nothing I’d rather do than have a great convo at home, with wine and a comforting meal…

    This recipe looks delish! But, wine is missing from the ingredient list — how much does it call for?

    Oooh, good catch LIz. I left out the 1/4 C of dry white wine from my ingredients list!
