Happy Sunday, friends! It's a beautiful morning with hints of last night's cold front and exciting Memphis Grizzlies victory in our neighborhood. I've whipped up breakfast bowls for me and Alex with savory, protein-packed ingredients for a leisurely afternoon ahead.
The Jewish holiday of Passover arrives this upcoming Monday; and while we are traditionally commanded to re-experience our ancestors' slavery through rituals of matzah and horseradish-eating and parsley-dipping, etc. etc., I attest that our breakfasts should not similarly "suffer."
My Royal Red shrimp craze began one summer afternoon in Seaside, when my sandy hands tasted a steamed Royal Red shrimp. The introduction was heaven on Earth--I still recall its sweet, lobster-like consistency and the hot butter melting off the tail.
If you're anything like me, you cannot wait Spring to stop teasing and, at last, come into bloom. I am ready for flowers to stud the neighborhood, for the grass to brighten, and for the weather to be consistently warm!
Kale is taking over my kitchen. The winter green is tough to the touch, but its ability to soak up seasonings and sauces makes it a favorite staple for the season. This salad looks incredibly simple (because it is); but it is immensely enriching, offering a delicate presentation and heavy protein supplement that aligns with a healthy (pre-wedding) diet.
Our March #caramelizedwedding weekend unofficially kicked off with a dinner and s'mores scene at Loflin Yard for Thursday night out-of-towner arrivals; but it wasn't until I slipped on my Red Valentino vintage dress and cowboy boots Friday morning that the emotions and reality set in.
My new parents hosted the most incredible opener to our wedding weekend! We couldn't be more grateful for the final product, with details made possible by so many Memphis vendors and creatives. Scroll and see a glimpse of an emotionally-charging celebration (if only we could re-capture the wedding toasts!).
I have had the pleasure of getting to know the Brooklyn-based team behind Bloglovin', a brilliant curator and platform to create personalized blog feeds with daily content. Each morning, I read up on a dozen of my favorites -- from Camille Styles to The EveryGirl -- with just one scroll.
The holiday of love falls on a Tuesday this year (sigh). Alex and I are amidst the go-go-go mentality of wedding plans -- we're one month away! -- and though we enjoy the cheesy undertones of February 14, it's agreed upon that we need an opportunity to simply breathe.
I prefer to start the new year on the right foot by sharing a meal with close friends. Whether they're your neighbors or out-of-town guests, a leisurely morning will guarantee the right frame of mind for the year ahead.
Having relished in the Hanukkah traditions as the rabbi's daughter, I coveted the game of dreidel. It's competitive and crafty, and, more importantly, it involves candy. The "traditional" candy given to the winner of dreidel is a rather tasteless piece of chocolate wrapped in gold foil.
With December’s arrival, holiday soirée invitations suddenly swarm our calendars. And if you’re anything like me, an entertaining expert and bonafide foodie in town, this season’s retail offerings in-store and on social media urge us to host parties in our own homes.
