Flavor Buffet

To say I’m happy it’s the weekend would be an understatement! What a week. It was long, busy, and not exactly idyllic weather for all of the extra walking I was doing while Seth was away for work. However, we made it through and here we are… it’s the weekend! Hooray! 🎉

Let’s get to the Buffet. I’m hungry. ;)


Cup of Jo added a new column, Favorite Things, and the debut piece features Somsack Sikhounmuong; he formerly ran design at Madewell and J.Crew. A fun, quick read!

Forever the chic (?) kitchen counter accessory, the Kitchen Aid stand mixer is a necessity for many home bakers. But…is it? This article discusses if the famous kitchen item (and forever wedding shower gift) is really needed in your home.

Be aware of what you buy. Social media “Influencers” aren’t necessarily the most informed about the (health) products they’re promoting. Apparently some training is in order.

Just in case you need it, here’s a guide to why butter makes everything better. Time to bake!


While I wait for the fall cookbooks to be released…

Blueberry-Miso Crumb Cake - I want to try this with gluten free flour. Also, who cares if it’s not blueberry season anymore?

Carbonara Lasagna - Well this looks decadent! Will need to track down GF lasagna noodles. Or make my own. And also buy the cookbook that has this recipe in it. The title? Lasagna: A Baked Pasta Cookbook . How fab is that?!

Chickpea and Kale Shakshuka - This sort of meal is perfect for cold fall mornings. Excited to try this one soon!


Traveling this fall? I’ve got the guides for you!

New NYC, right here!

All about Boston, here.

Take in Maine, here.


My favorite running pants are now available in navy. And whenever I wear them (in navy) I feel as though I run a lot faster and work harder. Strange, but I’ll take it.

Speaking of running, I love these socks to wear with my sneakers. If you haven’t tried a pair yet, I highly recommend them!

Since we’re keeping things cozy around here, I’m debating a fleece from this company. I’m on a hunt this weekend to finally try one on! Stay tuned…
