Little Things :: A Fall Menu for Kids

Tuesday Tastings :: Fall Oxtail Pappardelle

We’re following up this morning’s pasta making class with an exclusive recipe from épicerie‘s chef and owner, Sarah McIntosh.

Monochromatic Monday :: A Clean Slate

Alexandra is back with her second installment of the MADE. Dinner Series. And though we could have sworn her first dinner would be impossible to beat, I dare say that today’s meal is an even more gorgeous display of all that autumn has to offer.

Monochromatic Monday :: Blackberry Jam

After a few months of frothy pastels, patriotic palettes and neon shocks of summer color…I’m starting to feel the first whispers of autumn palettes drawing my attractions. Jewel tones and gilded details speak to the cool breezes that signal fall’s arrival, and while I’m definitely not ready to pack away my sandals and sundresses, I’m… read more

Good & Plenty

Two days left to finalize plans for Thanksgiving, and I’m taking one last spin through my inspiration files as I settle on my tabletop decor scheme. Did I mention that I’m hosting the meal for both mine and my husband’s families? I’m really looking forward to spending the day in the kitchen with my mom… read more
