IMG_6590i spent the beginning of october in NYC, falling deeply and madly in love- or as one of my friends put it “caught between the moon and new york city”. perhaps, it was the joy of being in the most lively city in the world after spending months in mere solitude. or perhaps i just love NY. i have been to manhattan a gazillion times, but this trip, this trip was special.  no particular reason other than the amount of inspiration i inhaled. i didn’t even realize how much i needed that. i had to cut my east coast trip short and head back to colorado for some production jobs. it felt good to be incredibly busy and constantly on the go. though, i couldn’t wait to get back to see my pup and take a rest, but as soon i did just that i crashed and burned and am still recovering. i seem to be following fall around the country. i was extra excited to see autumn in ny, but she had yet to fully show her colors. colorado was insanely beautiful though and we even did some shooting in a small mining town, so i got to travel within my travels.

but new york, lets talk new york. the walking, the food, the subway, the spontaneity, the food, the fashion, the people, the food. did i mention the food? i stayed at a friend’s loft in williamsburg to shoot her holiday lookbook (which i will post when we release). she had to go out of town for work… so, i got to play “new yorker” living in a loft and dressing up in many of my clothes i buy with intention to wear, but never do. i didn’t take a cab once except to and from la guardia, it was subway all the way and lots and lots of walking. though my feet killed me all week and i still have remnants of blisters, it was liberating.  i spent the week shooting and styling during the day in the loft and meeting up with friends at night around the city and brooklyn.  at first, i was overwhelmed with the amount of hipsterness of williamsburg, but by the end of my trip i was loving it. it has been so long since i felt inspired by fashion and clothes, i had so much fun picking out a cute outfit everyday-even if i was just going to get coffee. i can’t say i felt comfortable going to the store in a long lace dress in colorado- but in new york- anything is possible and acceptable.

i have always wanted to live in ny, but never did it because of the “complications”. the time is feeling right i must admit.  well, it is a possibility anyway-one i can’t stop thinking about. what is my life without chances and experiences? it is what my heart desires. i realized as i was leaving ny for colorado that i don’t fall foolishly in love with boys anymore- but rather places. maybe it is an infatuation, but those are the most fun anyway aren’t they?

IMG_6626IMG_6545IMG_6482manhattan- my first love. alive and full of energy. i had dinner one night with an old friend and we talked of my colorado adventure and his life in ny. he said someone once told him that the people of new york are the nature, the botany. it might be a concrete jungle, but we are animals and the humans bring the life to the city. it is so true! people come to new york because they want to be inspired by others-to work with others. that whole new yorkers are rude thing- i just dont believe it. i encountered so many nice people and conversations just at a coffee shop, and slowly my intimidation of coming off a mountain adventure and into a big city dwindled. you don’t get that in LA. everyone seems miserable in california or LA, i never felt warm fuzzy feelings going to get a cup of coffee- i felt judged.

there is one spot i always hit up for a dosa in soho. a friend took me here years ago and it has been my tradition ever since to go at least once. hampton chutney company. i get the #6 with chicken, cilantro chutney, and an iced chai.there are a gazillion restaurants in manhattan and i can say i have only ever had a few bad meals. i have expanded my horizons over the decade of visiting from little italy to searching out the hippest of small joints. there are many websites to help you find the best restaurants of the moment.

it so happened while i was visiting two of my friends from LA were also in NY. it made the first few days full of random adventures and moments. that’s the thing about new york- you can turn a corner and your next hour is spent doing something totally unexpected. almost every night i came into the city from brooklyn and met up with a friend. (all of whom are very old friends!) one of my girls in ny is a broadway actor/dancer- i use to drive her to school back in alabama. she took me to sardi’s (if you have seen the muppets take manhattan you know this restaurant!) and at one point during our visit we were walking around times square to only stumble upon my morning jacket playing a free concert. another highschool friend of mine and i went to see our other friend’s show on broadway. it was my first broadway show.

i sat in line for 30 minutes to try shake shack. i saw ” something borrowed” one to many times, and plus i had to compare to in and out. it was pretty good. i could eat it right now in fact. you can’t really compare to in and out though. you just can’t. i did have a run in with a squirrel while trying to eat my shake shack. this little shit wouldn’t leave me alone. he tried to get in my purse and even followed me down about 10 benches. he ruined my experience all for the hopes he was going to get a french fry.

my last saturday in ny i decided to take the ferry from williamsburg to 34th street. i then took the subway to 77th street and walked to the park. i walked north to the jackie o reservoir and then all the way back down to 59th street. it was a beautiful day in the city. the park was crowded and the leaves were crunchy, though the colors were just starting to peak through. my feet hurt bad, but i took my time and sat on benches or laid in the grass- people watching all the while. it was awesome.
IMG_6622PicMonkey CollaggeIMG_6469IMG_6638IMG_6637IMG_6584PicMonkey Collagjhewilliamsburg is full of every current trend that is good. clothes, food, bars,and lifestyle. the weekends on those sidewalks feel something like the halls of highschool, but with hipster 20 somethings and young thirty-forty something families. i got the chance to try many little places in this epicenter of coolness. here is a list of some of my favs.

A. D.O.C. wine bar– this little wine bar/italian restaurant was my last pit stop. i stopped off just because and i had the most delicious pasta, house wine, and tiramisu!

B.Tiny Empire – another stop off on my way to the subway. this juice bar has so many options it is hard to decide.

C.The Shanti Shack– this yoga studio and cafe was delicious for such a small place. i am still thinking about the grilled cheese and have been making the nutter smoothies for breakfast the past few days (banana, spinach, coconut milk, almond butter)

D. Blue Bottle Coffee – drip coffee is where it is at. so is a buckwheat biscuit with ham, cheese, and chutney. holy shit- this was so much better than i ever could have imagined it to be.

E. Depanneur– this place was my staple because it was next door to the loft. i came here for coffee, breakfast, and pick me ups. such a cute shop. just cute.

F.Beautiful Dreamers– this shop is curated so well, and rightfully so as it is owned by a stylist.i dream of getting my work in here.

G.Mast Brothers Chocolate– hipster willy wonka’s!

H.Brooklyn Flea– pretty comparable to fairfax flea market. with views of manhattan and the water. i also bought two pairs of clogs from Nina Z that i am in love with.

I. East River Ferry – if you are in manhattan and are looking to visit williamsburg, i suggest taking the ferry one way. great views of the city.

other places not on the map, but totally worth the visit:

Marlow & Sons– a little empire of food and drinks.

Taco Chulo– hands down delicious mexican.

Species by the Thousands– another epic store full of curiosities and mysticism

last week, when my friends were visiting i made this delicious salad. it was so good, i made it again for myself. peaches are everywhere and so incredibly tasty. i am not a huge fan of tart things, but these are perfect. i like to eat them with cottage cheese for breakfast or dessert ! the salad was a hit with my friends and it is more than easy to make after you make that trip to the grocery store!  simply peaches, arugula, prosciutto, and manchego. i bought a case of leinenkugel’s summer shandy the other day too. if you have never had this beer, it is so perfect for a summer afternoon. it is light and refreshing, and i kind of want one right now.

i added some fresh raspberries to the beer just for fun! i made a little picnic outside for myself. taking in all this wonderfulness of my surroundings. i’m not sure how much longer i’ve got left here. i have 5 days to make up my mind whether to stay or go. that is a whole other blog post.

IMG_4932 IMG_4933

peaches – peel the skin and dice them up

arugula– rinse and give the leaves a dressing of olive oil, a bit of balsamic, salt + pepper

prosciutto– cut into small pieces

manchego– shave pieces into the salad with a vegetable peeler

combine all ingredients together. done!

sometimes, i get this itch for asian flavors. for some reason i have to be in the mood for it, and sometimes the mood is just right. putting an asian spin on fish tacos sounded damn good. probably due to the gwenyth paltrow cookbook i bought, it’s all good. it is filled with healthy flavors that are mouth watering. gwen might get a bad rap, but i certainly like her. this cookbook makes me want to eat clean and healthy all the time. needless to say, it is inspiring.  i had already bought some fish at the market… and i always keep lots of asian sauces and what not in the house. my favorite being, fish sauce. i love this stuff…must be the super salty goodness!

i made homemade tortillas and a simple slaw. dolloped with a little yogurt with lime juice and sriracha. pretty sure the white flour tortillas are not part of gwenyth’s diet, nor the yogurt, but hey, you win some you lose some!   one doesn’t have to make their own tortillas, but they are definitley tasty. i didn’t have any in the house, but i do have a tortilla maker… so, my laziness was awoken that evening.

IMG_4156 IMG_4154

ingredients

 1 cup cabbage

 1/4 c cilantro (stems too-lots of flavor there!)

1/4 c cucumber

1/4 c of red onion

2 tbsp of green onion

2 tsp of fish sauce

2 tsp of sesame oil or sesame seeds

3 oz cod

tortillas

greek yogurt

lime juice

sriracha

chop it all up! mix all the ingredients in a bowl. let to sit for a while to absorb flavors.

sauté the cod or other fish you like in sesame oil until cooked. heat up or make your tortillas. mix greek yogurt or creme fraiche with the juice of half a lime.

spoon the fish into the tortillas and top with the slaw, yogurt, and sriracha! wall!

an ice box cake…does it get much better than that? all that whip cream… i love whip cream ! i mean love it. i also use to love fourth of july. it was my favorite holiday growing up, i suppose because as a family it was our most social one. it was an all day event. we hit the parade in our subdivision out in the cornfields and then drove into town to go to the town parade. one of us kids was often in it too. we would head back home, generally with heat exhaustion, take a swim in our pool, and eat good all american food.  at dusk we walked to the lake covering ourselves in bug spray, set out blankets, and watched the fireworks. when i was really young my sister’s and brother’s friends would come hang in our area. they were funny and goofy… and in high school, and i pretty much thought they were the coolest. at the end of the night we would head back home and set off our own fireworks on our neighborhood street. it seemed the whole neighborhood was outside, roaming around, and just having a good old time. as i grew into my teen years we were hitting up different parties, driving golf carts,crashing motor bikes, and other general shenanigan activities! my friends and i from my home town often reminisce about those 4th of july’s and are all in agreement that no one does it quite like crown point, indiana.

this is a super simple recipe that i use to make for this holiday. i put a spin on the concept, trying it as an ice box cake.  i generally made this cake in a regular 9×12 baking pan, i didn’t layer it, and also made an american flag on top with the blueberries and strawberries. you can make this into a trifle and add custard or pudding. you can add mascarpone to the whip cream to make it a bit more stiff. you can add almond extract too for some yummy flavor. to make it a traditional ice box cake you could use vanilla wafers, shortbread, or any cookie you please!!! the ingredients are so simple, there are so many ways to doctor it up!

i used a spring form pan, but to my dismay, when i was trying to take it out, the whole cake went flying into the air and landed on the floor. which is why i do not have a photo of the beautiful layers from the inside. 😦  possibly, one of my worst kitchen disasters. however, a blessing in disguise because i probably would have eaten it all day long. none the less…hopefully your spring form pan has a little more give-way then mine. or just use a good old baking dish in case you are prone to error, like myself.

these ingredients are so easy and the same ones i used long ago, except i used cool whip back then not homemade whip cream.

sara lee butter pound cake (i love this stuff) 1-2 packages depending on size of pan

homemade whip cream

strawberries and blueberries

cut the poundcake into thin pieces. begin to layer in the pan alternating with whip cream. you can also add in thin slices of strawberries or strawberry puree or strawberry jam. fill in the holes with broken pieces of pound cake. top the final layer with strawberries and blueberries in any design you like! let the cake refrigerate overnight! serve!

i have been making, therefore eating, a lot of crepes lately. this is just one of two posts to come! one day, i started thinking about these yellow pancakes we were served every morning at our riad in marrakech, morocco. they had all these bubbles on top and though i can not really describe what they tasted like, they were tasty and kind of strange. i would fill mine up with the hard boiled eggs and butter that were also served with it, and maybe something sweet too. We honestly had no idea what to do with them, except eat em. recently, i started wondering if this was some sort of traditional moroccan food, and it turns out, they are!!!! moroccan crepes. why, it took me so long to figure this out, i do not know.

i decided i would give these a try! the base is semolina flour, which sounds like it would be gluten free, but it is actually very high in gluten. it is used in many pasta recipes because of the high content. the bubbles, comes from yeast. traditionally, they are served with honey and butter. i was such a tourist eating them wrong and still am! i decided to put a little spin on these. i added saffron and cinnamon to the crepe batter and made an orange butter with zest! obviously, served with moroccan mint tea!

PicMonkey Collagebihbl1 1/2 cups fine semolina

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

2 tsp baking powder

3 cups plus 2 tablespoons lukewarm water

1 tablespoon yeast

Mix the flour, semolina, salt, sugar and baking powder in a mixing bowl. In a blender, measure lukewarm water to just over the 3-cup line.

Add the yeast and process on low speed to blend. Gradually add the dry ingredients.

Increase the processing speed and blend for a full minute, or until very smooth and creamy. The batter should be rather thin, like crepe batter.

Pour the batter into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and leave to rest for 30 minutes to one hour, or until the top of the batter is light and a bit foamy.

Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Stir the batter, and use a ladle to pour batter into the hot skillet. Pour carefully and slowly into the center and the batter will spread evenly into a circle. (Do not swirl the pan as you would for a crepe; the batter should spread itself.) Make the beghrir as large as you like.

Bubbles should appear on the surface of the beghrir as it cooks. Don’t flip the beghrir. It only gets cooked on one side.

Cook for about two to three minutes, or until the beghrir doesn’t appear wet anywhere on the surface. It should feel spongy, but not sticky or gummy, when you touch it lightly with your finger.

Transfer the beghrir to cool in a single layer on a clean kitchen towel. Once they are cool, they can be stacked without sticking.

recipe from about.com

for the butter:

soften a half a stick of butter. add 1 tbsp of orange zest and a bit of juice. mix together and place in a dish.

there is so much rhubarb growing in my garden right now, though i didn’t actually plant it, i figure someone should be par-taking in this glorious, crazy, edible stuff.  i have been slowly harvesting it and trying to come up with recipes other than the classic rhubarb strawberry pie. i mean, who doesn’t like pie? but with so much of it growing, there are only so many pies one can make.

my neighbors across the river had a bbq this past weekend. i made potato skins with a chipotle sour cream and rhubarb ice tea! it was super easy to make and i thought what a great way to celebrate in the bountiful beauty of our neighborhood then to share the rhubarb from the garden.  it pretty much tastes like sweet tea. living in the south for 3 years, i never caught onto sweet tea, but this was actually really tasty and everyone loved it! i have a feeling i will be making this all summer!

don’t just stop at rhubarb, any infused simple syrup is a great addition to an ordinary glass of tea. though, i still love mine with lots of lemon!

ps. if you didn’t already know, the leaves of rhubarb are poisonous, so discard them right away!
PicMonkey Collage

what you need:

10 bags of black tea

10 cups of cold water

2-4 stalks of rhubarb, chopped, depending on how tart you might like it

1 cup of sugar

1 cup of water

in a pitcher combine the cold water and tea bags. place in the fridge for a few hours to brew. no need to heat up the water. the cold brews it kind of like sun tea!

boil the sugar, one cup of water, and rhubarb together. once at a boil, turn down to a simmer. simmer until it becomes like a syrup. let it cool.

pour the syrup into the pitcher of tea. serve over ice with your choice of garnish!

things are  mountain high beautiful here in CO. flowers are blooming, my vegetable garden is planted, and there is so much green around me it makes me feel crazy with excitement. the smell of fresh cut grass and summer rain, the brightening of spring, the daylight is hanging around a little bit longer. it has me all so incredibly nostalgic for my days in the midwest and the south, that it feels as though i am living it again. i feel that peace i use to feel growing up of the simplicity of life. the rat race of the last ten years had been hiding all these pleasures. i mean, i went to dairy queen the other night and i thought it was just about the greatest thing. i was envious of all the families enjoying the warm evening with cold ice cream, together.

i  received a text from a dear friend of mine from alabama yesterday, reminding me, we graduated 15 years ago from highschool. 15 years ago, holy shit! my initial thought was “where did the time go?” then, as i started thinking about it and looking at old pictures of old friends, it dawned on me that i have lived such a full life. full of so many friends, love, adventures. years of this. so many phases of my life with trails of friendships all over the country.  i have lived out many of my dreams, falling down on the way many times, but picking myself back up and trying something again. it brings up many questions for me on where to go next on this journey.

which, somehow all this nostalgia brings me to this simple recipe (don’t ask really), one everyone already knows, but i wanted to share with this trip down my memory lane.

there were only handful of things i could make in college. one being bruschetta. which i brought to every single party, either that or strawberry shortcake. i could also make quesadilla’s and tofu smoothies. i tried lasagna once trying to impress a dude, but i forgot to boil the noodles. my poor dinner guests. i was more of a creature of habit back then. i’m not sure i fully thought out everything before i did something, and that seems to have brought me more success in my life. not thinking, just doing. i also smoked a lot of pot. i also listened to sarah mclachlan on repeat, and i am currently doing so while i type this post….just for good time’s sake.

i laugh when i think how brave and silly i was back then. how i could give a damn what anyone thought of me.

how things have changed, how some haven’t.

i don’t measure these goodies. i just throw it all together in a bowl and eyeball how much i need according to how many people will be eating.

IMG_8630 IMG_8634 IMG_8648

IMG_8463we all know i love a good party. any excuse to get crafty and make my friends feel loved. when larissa asked me to be in her wedding, i was more than flattered and honored. i love this girl so much. we were invited to park city, utah for a weekend of hiking, yoga, and indulging!

larissa’s maid/matron of honor, ally,  planned a weekend to the T full of larissa’s favorite activities. ally also openly welcomed me doing a little sun and glory craftiness. together we collaborated on a bachelorette kit, dinner, and decor. ally made up an itinerary for the weekend and was so good at organizing all of us ladies  getting us from one place to the next. that is a tough job. we even illegally smuggled wylie into the house. even if we did have to hide out in the car while the manager came to the property. we just couldn’t get off that easily, but wylie was the perfect little addition for the weekend.

i missed thursday night, but friday morning we did some yoga lead by leslie (larissa and leslie are both instructors). i have not done pigeon pose in so long that my hips were screaming. ( i have since started up yoga again, what a great way to be inspired!). after yoga we hit up a hike that we aren’t exactly sure was a hike, but more of walking around in the wilderness and campgrounds of this beautiful area. we still walked for a few hours and had a lovely gloomy afternoon. followed up by taking the tram up to the st regis in deer valley for drinks. park city was empty while we were there, it is shoulder season, the place felt like it was just ours.  the manager at st regis kindly let us bring wylie into the restaurant even though they don’t really allow dogs, apparently it is called “bark city” not just park city. the food and wine director also gave us some great hikes to hit up for the following day. he kind of became our new best friend.

the next hike was gloomy at times, sunny at times, rainy at times. i was exhausted after the previous day of drinking prosecco in the hot tub to only be hungover by the time we made it to dinner. i have never been a good day drinker.

i wouldn’t say we got lost exactly on this hike, we just weren’t sure where we were headed. we did a huge loop in the mountains, probably 7 or so miles. even though i thought i was going to die, it was so incredibly worth it.

IMG_3563PicMonkey CollageIMG_7939

 that evening we all pitched in on a sun and glory feast. grilled steaks, kale salad, and sweet potato fries with blue cheese. not to mention the prosicutto/mozzarella/melon skewers and fondue and smores for dessert. the night was complete with a whiskey bar and a dance party.

i wanted to make the table special. i bought some succulents while i was in LA and  wrapped them in brown paper. the table runner was the same brown paper adorned with air plants, plastic horses, and seed starters on the plates.

i made a pinterest board a while back and ally and i both loved the idea of a bachelorette box. i tend to go overboard with ideas and have hard time narrowing down the things i should and shouldn’t put in these things. i bought some canteens and painted my beloved triangle on them. i also painted sticks, and made sun and glory keychains. i  threw in granola bars, mini whiskey’s, coconut water, sunscreen, rock candy, blistex, a bandana, and a little mini white cowboy hat that looks like a white blob in the photo. everyone had  blast with it.

we also did a photo shoot. american flag and all…see the next post!IMG_7851IMG_7878PicMonkey CollagehdhfIMG_8413PicMonkey Collagegsr

my little adventure isn’t quite over yet, but i thought i would get back on the blog and write a little post that i have had pending. my guest blogger fell through and i am sorry about that…i hate to say something is going to happen and it doesn’t. perhaps, the blog just needed a little rest.

my journey the past week has been a good one. one that i will share lots over the next few weeks in a couple of posts.  i don’t feel too sad it is over, because i will be back on the road again very soon traveling to LA for a job.  oh, the wanderlust that feeds my soul…sigh.

today, i share with you some strawberry scones i made a few weeks back.  i use a barefoot contessa recipe and spice it up with a few extra ingredients!

IMG_7070 IMG_7078 IMG_7085 PicMonkey Collageklnkl

4 cups of flour

2 tbsp of sugar, plus more for sprinkling

2 tbsp of baking powder

2 tsp salt

3/4 lb of cold unsalted butter, diced

4 extra large eggs beaten

1 cup of cold heavy cream

3/4 cup of diced strawberries and blueberries

1 tsp of cinnamon

zest of one orange

1 tbsp of orange blossom water

1 egg beaten for egg wash

preheat oven to 400 degrees

combine the dry ingredients in a mixer with paddle attachment. add in the very cold, diced butter and mix until it turns to pea size. mix the cream and eggs together and mix in with flour/butter mixture until it starts to turn sticky. add in the strawberries/blueberries, zest, cinnamon, and orange blossom. dump dough onto a well floured board and roll out. i cut the whole thing in a rectangle, then divide that into 4 squares, then halve the squares into two triangles.place on a baking sheet and brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.

the key to these scones is the cold ingredients (butter, eggs, and milk). the cold butter makes the scone fluffy!

serve with clotted cream and tea!

pickled eggs. it sounds weird, but damn are they good. i have wanted to make these since i saw their beautiful color online somewhere. the first time i actually had one was at one of the famous french dip places in LA, Phillipe. i wasn’t disappointed. so, one snowy afternoon here on the Colorado homestead, i made some pickled eggs.

i love eggs. i love them in every way possible, except raw…i have never actually tried that, but for some reason the thought of drinking raw eggs reminds me of that rocky scene, where he does so.

i actually had some pickled beets in the fridge from a little mom and pop place down the street from my house, colorado cherry company. this place, nestled into the base of the big rocky mountains, sells anything pickled you could ever want. they also make a raspberry juice that is to die for, and pies. they make pies too! it is just one of the many little gems in my country neighborhood.

i used some bay leaves from the tree in my old backyard in LA. i meant to harvest more before i left…it just seems so silly to buy them now, but i suppose one day i will have to again. i might still be in denial i don’t live in that house anymore, that i don’t have that california backyard anymore. sigh.

i also used different herbs from my inside mini herb garden. these would have been even more perfect if i would have gotten eggs from my dog walker and her chickens.

the color of mine did not turn out as purple as i would have liked. let’s not call it a disappointment, let’s call it trial and error.

spring is upon us, even if we still get snow here. one day you wake up to 2 inches on the ground, and the next it is 60 degrees. i can see green grass starting to pop up across the lawn. it has been so long since i have witnessed a spring other than southern california’s…which i don’t think really counts much to the rest of the country.

these pickled eggs just might be the perfect treat for easter!
