Bye Punchfork. Hello Hugspoon.

hugspoon

I remember the sad day Punchfork announced they are going to shut down their app and site. While I am thrilled for the team for having been acquired by Pinterest, I can’t help but feel disappointed. I am tired of falling in love with services that then get acquired and shut down. I have developed a serious case of FSP (Free-Services-Paranoia).

I remember bringing this up over lunch at work which resulted in a long, philosophical conversation, and the shortly to be lauched Hugspoon. My friends at Fictive Kin realized just how incredibly disappointed and sad I was over Punchfork going away. They decided to go on a rescue mission and build Hugspoon, which aims to save all of your Punchfork recipes.

As the shut down of Punchfork is a mere few days away, my studiomates just put up the holding page for Hugspoon which will help them save your account information. If you want to be notified when they launch, just type in your email on their current homepage. If you have a Punchfork username and want them to save the recipes you liked, you can type that in, too. They’ll do their best to save your data before Punchfork disappears. If you want to learn more about why they’re doing this, check out their /purpose.

Rainbow Spaghetti

Rainbow Spaghetti

I know for a fact that my kids would get a total kick out of these Rainbow Spaghetti.

Yes, food coloring is bad for you. I get that. Obviously, I wouldn’t feed these to my kids daily.

My daughter thinks Karoto is quite funny. I agree.

Heaven in a Bowl

cali cooks breakfast

For my birthday, my team sent a private chef to my house, making brunch for me and my friends. It was heaven! H-E-A-V-E-N! One of the dishes Cali made, was Barley Porridge. It was the best dish I ever ate for brunch.

I begged Cali to post the recipe on his blog, and he just did: Creamy Barley Porridge with Cardamom and Pomegranates by Cali Rivera. YUM!

Bamboo Mixing Bowl Set

Mixing Bowl Set

I wouldn’t mind giving this Bamboo Mixing Bowl Set a home.

Winter Sun Cocktail

Clementine juice and a touch of lemon combine with vodka = Winter Sun Cocktail. Haven’t tried it yet myself, but will do so this weekend!

Swiss Alps Panorama Knife

Now here’s a gift for the chef that has it all: Swiss Alps Panorama Knives. From top to bottom: Berner Alps Panorama, Lake of Constance Panorama and soon to be available the Zurich Panorama. Made me smile.

(warning their shop is in German only)

Lid Sid



Lid Sid will keep the covers of your pots and pans open when they need some air‭, ‬and will raise smiles whenever you use him‭.‬ What a fun gift for friends that love to cook but have everything.

West Elm Market

Now look at this! West Elm Market is a completely new concept from West Elm filled with clever, hard-working, time-saving, clutter-busting solutions for everyday living. The first store, West Elm Market Brooklyn, will open October 25th in DUMBO. Yay to this!

Love that they have a Made in the USA category.

Happy Food Day

Team Tattly is celebrating Food Day by wearing our Vegetable Tattly. Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.

Farmigo

It makes me happy when I discover web-based tools that help connect like-minded people, in this case, people that care about local produce with farmers. Farmigo is taking CSAs to the next level. The Farmigo online food network provides consumers with an easy way to subscribe to a local farm and get fresh food delivered to a convenient pick up location.

I just learned that Brooklyn Roasting across the street from our office will be one of the drop-off locations. Shopping local, supporting local farmers has never been easier. And, how cute is the name Farmigo?

Modern Welsh Lovespoon

Now these Modern Welsh Lovespoons make for a fantastic gift for newlyweds or newly engageed folks, no?

Vegetable Linen Tea Towel

Absolutely love this Vegetable tea towel by Kate Bingaman Burt.

Eat Me Cookie Stamp

A cookie inherently screams EAT ME when I see it. This stamp is for people who need some convincing. Made me smile.

Julia Child Remixed

This Julia Child remix made me smile. She was one inspiring lady! And it happens to be her 100th Birthday today. Maria posted a lovely write up of Julia’s Lessons in Publishing and Perseverance.

Peacock Measuring Spoons

Peacock Measuring Spoon. Yes!

Salt Bird

This Salt Bird made me chuckle.

Sombrero Juicer

The Sombrero Juicer by Umbra lets you easily add a splash of citrus to your beverage. Simply place the juicer into the top of your beverage container and quickly juice a lemon or lime right into your drink. Definitely something I can live without but I admit, it made me look.

Flag Conversions Tea Towel

This Flag Conversion Tea Towel is useful and good looking and therefore qualifies to enter my home.

Choice Cuts of Potato

This Choice Cuts of Potato Tea Towel is the perfect gift for the vegetarian in your life.

Eat Your Vegetables!

Team Tattly launched the adorable Vegetable Set yesterday. Didn’t you always want to wear an eggplant tattoo on your arm?

Freeze A Rainbow

I am pretty confident I’ll be reaching supermom status once I make a batch of these Rainbow Popsicles for my kids.

Potluck Baker Set



This Potluck Baker Set makes me want to look up some recipes on Punchfork and go home and cook.

Asparagus Tart

This Asparagus Tart caught my eye, and made my stomach growl. I found it over on The Forest Feast, a blog by Erin Gleeson, a NYC photographer who moved to the woods.
