When the going gets tough, take yourself to a tropical greenhouse. This was some serious therapy. 🔆🌿🌸 (Thanks for the love today, I truly appreciate it.) #cabinfever #logeesgreenhouse
Here's hoping that by giving voice to the hard things taking up space in our minds, we get to move to the other side faster. Spring cleaning? 🌿💕 (link in profile)
So IG stories was indeed a bust (see previous post), which is too bad because I really wanted to talk with you about some favorites on these shelves. But here are some close up pics, nonetheless (scroll). I hope you can see the titles clearly enough. Last year I purged my cookbooks and donated/sold about half, and I'm gearing up to do that again, so many of these will be going. Anyway, here you go... and, good morning! 🔆🌿 (If you have questions about any of them I'll do my best to answer.)
I was asked to do a cookbook tour so I'll be in Instagram stories sharing that. I really don't know what I'm doing over there so no guarantees it will be worthwhile... but here I go. Let me know if you have any questions. 🤗📚(Edited: hmm... can't seem to add to the story after posting that initial clip. Not sure how this is going to go... might be a bust.)
We're just hangin' by the cookbook shelf waiting for a dinner idea to present itself. Totally normal thing to do at 6:45pm. 😬 If you're wondering why Scout looks so intense, it's because I said Algeria, which is a trigger word for him. #notkidding #bordercollieproblems
It looks like I'm going to bake my way through these early snow-covered days of spring. 🙊 We don't get to enjoy almond butter too often, but when we do, it's almost always in the form of these brownies: Almond Butter Brownies 1 cup creamy almond butter 1 egg 1/2 tsp salt 1/3 cup cacao (or cocoa) powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/2 cup maple syrup 2 tsp vanilla Handful of dark chocolate chips/chunks, optional 1. Preheat oven to 350 2. Generously grease 8x8 glass pan. 3. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except dark chocolate, until smooth. 4. Fold in chocolate. 5. Bake for 25 minutes, until set. 6. Cool completely before cutting.
This circa 1979 gem from my childhood is courtesy of FB memories. Mom got this table at a tag sale and my sister and I figured because dad was a painter, we'd be good at it too. Turns out it doesn't really work that way, and I wound up bathing in paint thinner that night. (Remember the days before we knew anything was bad for us? Good times.) Also, how about my 100% polyester halter top and shorts? 😎
Spent the evening in a live session with @danielvitalis and #arthurhaines , closing out a nine week virtual book club for Arthur's book, A New Path. I really can't get enough of what these two offer the world. #moreplease 🙏🏻🌀🔆
