May: Sunday Snack

We were more than excited to see a box of figs at the market and thought what better to pair with a lonely fig than honey and prosciutto? Simple and sweet. Figs are by far one of my favorite fruits, and as soon as they go into high season, I will begin my annual fig jam making. I normally make about 15 jars since it is William’s favorite.

We were excited to attend AIGA talk with Michael Chernow who shared his know how on Hacking the System with his company the Meatball Shop.

Check out the new app Bondsy. It’s like Craigslist, but you only have connections that are your ‘friends’, so you don’t get the creeps. Great way to get rid of stuff you don’t need, or trade items.

I can’t wait for summer days like this. These two boxer dogs are too much fun.

I just took a great class at the Institute of Culinary Education. They have a great program in food media and I can’t wait for the recipe writing class this summer.

Have you heard about the Equals Project? I was more than thrilled to hear they are working on their first print edition. Some talented ladies are putting together this publication. Check it out and show your support.

I can’t wait for BlogFest by Kravet later this month. I almost passed out when we received an invite to a party at Jonathan Adler’s Manhattan flagship store. I’ll be there, with bells on (after I pass out).

I just watched the documentary about Diana Vreeland and loved it. I was excited to see an outspoken woman with original ideas celebrated. She seemed to understand the seductiveness we need to create in visual industries, which is very overlooked in our current state. There is a need to play it safe, and I appreciate her not playing anything safe, but being conceptual and unique. I could talk about this for hours.

“When I arrived in America I had these dark red nails which some people objected to but then some people object to absolutely everything.” DV

Check out my Instagram photos from my trip to Canada. Some photos are from my Aunt’s farm which is so quiet, I had a hard time sleeping!
