Entertaining With :: Libbie Summers

I can almost smell the weekend, you guys, and all the food and parties and outdoor revelry that come with it. With soaking-up-the-sun and outdoor entertaining on our minds, we turned to one of the most creative and unconventional hostesses we know: Libbie Summers is the co-creator of the super inspirational Salted and Styled blog, and… read more


Spring Lunch Under the Trees

It feels like it was just yesterday that we posted Timothy Corrigan’s out-of-this-world holiday entertaining style at the fabulous Château du Grand-Lucé. Five months later, the temperatures are steadily on the rise in the Loire Valley, and Timothy’s transitioning his parties from dinners by candlelight, to lunch in the garden. We caught up with the interior designer… read more


The Super Foodie :: Roasted Sunchoke Soup

Jerusalem Artichokes — also known as sunchokes — are one of the vegetables I get most excited about when Fall comes, and in the next few weeks they’ll reach their peak. They’re so delicious when roasted with a little olive oil and sea salt, and when I have time to spend in the kitchen, they… read more


10 Best :: Smoothie Recipes

If you ask me, there’s no better way to incorporate fresh ingredients and natural sweetness into your diet than with a refreshing, fully-loaded smoothie. Whether you turn to your blender (or Vitamix, or Magic Bullet) for your morning fuel or an afternoon pick-me-up, let the drink serve as your tool to achieving healthy New Years resolutions (remember… read more


Entertaining with :: Haylie Duff

Haylie Duff is a girl who seems to have it all… yet somehow manages to stay completely down to earth, unpretentious and downright fun. She’s already a triple threat talent (actress, musician and food blogger) and now she’s just added the title of “cookbook author” to her resume with the recent publication of The Real… read more


Entertaining With :: Susan Hutchinson

Did you guys catch this to-die-for Bastille Day first birthday party back in August? I caught wind of it while browsing Pinterest one day, and it immediately soared to the top of my “favorite parties” list. The mama behind the masterpiece? None other than Susan Hutchinson, francophile and author of Fleurishing. So it was no… 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


Entertaining with :: Ann Lowe

If there was an Ann Lowe fan club, I’d be a charter member. This creative gal-about-town is so multitalented that you’d almost hate her… if she wasn’t so darn sweet and lovable. She’s an interior designer, prop stylist and culinary artiste, and no doubt has a few other hidden talents of which I’m not even… read more


10 Best :: Pumpkin Bites

At approximately 9 a.m. every morning, rain or shine, you can find me in the Starbucks line with a Gold Card in hand. While it’s not often that I stray from my routine iced vanilla latte, earlier this week I found myself craving a rich, frothy, cinnamon-y cup of nostalgia. Alas, the infamous pumpkin spice latte was calling… read more


Tuesday Tastings :: Pear & Ginger Tartlets

When I start the process of creating a new cocktail recipe, I often think about seasonal dishes and flavor combinations in the food I’ve been eating as a source of inspiration. However, it’s not very often that the opposite happens and a menu item is inspired by a cocktail, as was the case with these… read more
