Last week I was introduced to Lagusta’s Luscious’ Rosemary Seasalt Camarels and my life will never be the same. How can vegan chocolate be this good? What? Thank you Tim!
Meyer Lemon Tart
My friend Barbara made this Lemon Tart by Claire Saffitz yesterday and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was the most delicious desert I have ever had.
Custom (Brooklyn) Made Drawer Inserts
I have a slight obsession with storage boxes and neatly organized drawers. There is something wildly satisfying about a drawer organizer that is made to perfectly fit your drawers and needs.
My wonderful ex-husband, a kitchen designer, has been in the kitchen business for over 30 years and a constant complaint from homeowners and architects has been the lack of custom drawer organizing options. He took matters into his own hands and solved the problem:
With his new business DrawerSpace.com he custom-builds you your high-quality, wooden drawer inserts, based on your needs, right here in Brooklyn. There are lots of different configurations to choose from. So impressed!
What a great gift for someone you love. Say goodbye to ugly, plastic, non-fitting drawer inserts!
This small manual chopper is seriously adorable.
Now this is a good-looking full-sized griddle.
My decision to stop drinking a few months has made me put my feelers out for exciting, tasty non-alcoholic beverages. There’s a lot on the market but unfortunately many of the drinks are super high in sugar. But then I discovered Hoplark’s Hoptea, a super tasty, refreshing, frizzy ice tea. Non-alcoholic. No sugar. No calories. Just tea. I am in love and won’t stop gushing about them. Hopefully I can convince my local deli and grocery stores to carry them, but until then, I order online.
I am currently on day 54 of trying to experience myself and my life sans alcohol. (My goal is 90 days!) What an interesting journey this is, experiencing myself without ever escaping with a drink. I feel a bit like an onion, slowly peeling layers off, discovering new feelings and sides of me I didn’t know existed.
My friends recently introduced me to the non-alcoholic and delicious Curious Elixirs Cocktails. I am so glad they did! Number 2, pictured above, is my favorite! (I wish it contained less sugar.)
If you have been on a similar journey, what are your go to non-alcoholic drinks when socializing with friends?
Shitaku Lemon Squeezer
This simple porcelain lemon juicer was made in Hasami, a small town in Nagasaki Prefecture, known as the birthplace of fine Japanese ceramics. So simple. So beautiful.
Zip Top Reusable Silicone Bags
These Reusable Zip Tops look really useful. Basically a more sturdy version of a Zip Loc bag but that stand up on their own and you can wash and reuse. I am here for it.
I went to Greenlight, my local book store, and discovered this Cauliflower Recipe Book.
I gasped as I saw it sitting on the shelf!
I have a deeeeeep love for all things cauliflower.
I mean DEEEEP!
As I started flipping through the pages, I swooned at all the beautiful photographs and abundance of cauliflower recipes. Be still my heart!
You know that feeling, when a book finds you? This was one of those angelic choirs coming down kinda moment. Alright, I know I am being dramatic.
I love you cauliflower.

Rainbow Stripes Olive Oil Bottle
Loving this handprinted rainbow stripes Olive Oil Bottle from Italy. (Also loving the rainbow planter and plate.)
(Thank you Linda)
Thank you Tomoko Sato, I will never be able to look at an apple or a radish the same way again.
I can’t get over these pies. I am in love. They are by a self-taught baker named Lauren and who is just about to publish a book titled PIEOMETRY.
Tuxedo Stripe Bowtie Pasta
I want to cook a design-y looking meal with these.
These designer cakes by Tortik Annushka are breathtaking.
One of the co-founders is teaching cake making online classes. How fun!
This is One Smart Cutting Board
I love this cutting board, or Schneidebrett as the Germans call it. It comes with a “drawer” for your sliced and diced veggies.
I was invited for brunch at a friend’s house this past weekend and got introduced to Maple Cream. My life will never be the same. It’s as if a creamy honey and maple sirup had a baby. It’s a sweet, creamy, delicious spread. HEAVEN!
French Onion Soup
French Onion Soup Recipe. Definitely giving this a try!
Caraway Cookware Set
I discovered this beautifully designed ceramic pot set somewhere on the internet today. Consider me intrigued. These pots come in lovely colors and are made with naturally smooth ceramic, not toxic Teflon. Want!
This Made Me Laugh
Creature by Virgin Honey
Do you have any favorite recipes that you can make ahead, freeze, and it still tastes REALLY good when thawed & prepared?

Swell Food Containers
Swell has entered the food container market. This is exciting.
Butter for President
This T-Shirt made laugh. (Also, I own a framed oil-painting of a stick of butter. Seriously.)
