At this house by Wendell Burnette Architects.
Wearing a Grecian-inspired dress with modern accessories and bronze-y natural makeup like Lauren Hutton at the 47th Academy Awards.
Celebrating a spring soiree with festive invitations that have a layered fringe like this.
Sitting at a table with white candles and pretty pink flowers in gold cups like these.
Serving mini versions of this delicious looking triple creme brioche grilled cheese with moro blood orange and vanilla bean marmalade from here.
And maybe these too. Garlic, cheese, spices and breadcrumbs stuffed brussel sprouts.
This weekend, I took advantage of an open calendar by sleeping in, wearing pajamas well in to the afternoon, eating delicious brunches and reading. Sometimes a lazy weekend is all that is needed to cure a few stressful weeks.
An oversized owl mug (a gift from a friend from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter) filled with coffee.
A plate of my favorite pancakes – blueberry flaxseed griddlecakes via takeout from Doughboys.
Enjoying a bit of greenery on the bedside table.
The coziest slippers ever (from Restoration Hardware). The silky faux fur lining and cuff make them feel so indulgent.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I’m looking forward to watching the Oscars (red carpet!) with friends tonight.
Soup is one of my favorite foods, especially in the winter. Very few dishes are as comforting as a warm bowl of soup when it’s cold. Soup can be both fulfilling and healthy, and that’s exactly what I wanted when I hunted down this veggie stew recipe. I used this recipe and made some changes to it. This recipe is also tasty.
I chopped red potatoes and added them to low sodium vegetable broth with red lentils.
I added other vegetables like kidney beans, green chiles and corn, and spices including cumin, red chili and oregano.
The corn and green chili give the dish Mexican flavor, inspired by my love of tortilla soup. I topped the stew with one of my favorite soup garnishes – avocado. I finished with salt, pepper and parmesan.
The vegetable stew was exactly what I was looking for. Warm, soothing, flavorful and hearty without feeling too heavy or unhealthy.
