Monochromatic Monday :: Citrus & Sorbet

It started with those popsicles… I spotted them and suddenly I could taste summer. There’s just something about those hot colors that just screams fun-in-the-sun, and the weather in Austin is calling for just that. With temps in the 70′s & 80′s, clear skies and cool breezes, we’ve had the most gorgeous few days, and popsicles, sorbet… read more

10 Best :: Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes

Today I’m thankful that I made it through putting this slideshow together without heading out to the nearest grocery store for a giant ready-made turkey. I’m not the biggest meat-lover, but combing through the internet in search of these recipes quickly had my mouth watering at the thought of next week’s smorgasbord. How are you… read more

Bottoms Up :: Spiked Ginger-Apple Juice

You guys, my ginger addiction is getting serious (exhibit a and exhibit b… see what I mean?)

The Perfect Bite :: Blueberry Lemon Baby Bundts

Jess here, with another recipe that showcases tart citrus flavor… and just so happens to go exceptionally well with the suddenly hot weather that’s hit Austin lately!  Since I just bought these new mini bundt pans that needed breaking in, I mixed up blueberry and zesty lemon cakes, then went a little crazy with a rosemary-infused syrup… read more

Tuesday Tastings :: Blueberry-Lemon Coffee Cake

This weekend, in between the SXSW madness and hopping from panel to party and home again… I had a sudden urge to bake.

Remember back in April when I shared that I’d finally attempted my lifelong dream of having a Meyer lemon tree in the backyard? Well, after months of (impatient) waiting and watching the green lemons getting bigger and bigger… they’re finally ready for harvest! I’m a major lemon fan and love using it in unexpected ways… read more

Bottoms Up :: Blueberry-Lemon Fizz

I love when cocktails can almost be classified as health food, don’t you? Makes it just a little easier to justify seconds… which you’re going to want, after tasting this refreshing Blueberry-Lemon Fizz that I concocted yesterday (that’s brimming with antioxidant-rich berries, of course!) Don’t worry, this preggers girl only had a small sample, but… read more

Monochromatic Monday :: Sunny Days

Do y’all wear yellow very often? I must confess that I never do… but I’ve been craving shades of juicy citrus ever since Chanel posted this yellow dress roundup last month. I’m thinking that August might be the perfect time to infuse a vivid burst of sunshine into wardrobe and entertaining before we kiss summer goodbye… read more
