Yogurt Factory

I have been making one batch of yogurt after another - I can't stop!

I started getting a bit daring ... you know, doing crazy stuff like putting them in individual jars. I even added a little homemade jam to the bottom of a couple of them. And currently, I'm "thickening" one of them with some paper towels (like this). We got a reckless homemaker on our hands!

And the granola factory is also still in business...

Lotta Love

Another important item of business while in NY was to finally visit Lotta Jansdotter's studio in Brooklyn.

If I had a studio, I would want it to look just like hers - bright, open, airy, inspiring. It was awesome.

I bought these scraps to do I-have-no-idea-what with. But I'll come up with something.

Map Quilt

While I was in NY last week, one important item of business was to hit up Muji for these:

Because I MUST make this (the one on the bottom). And since I have 14 (yes, 14!) pregnant coworkers/friends (most having boys), this little blankie should not have any problems finding a home.

Giada is My New BFF

I received Giada's new cookbook as a shower gift, and I was instantly obsessed (Aunt Celeste, you know us too well).

The first thing I made was the Pasta Ponza, which was SO GOOD and so easy (or, as my dad would say, "really terriffic")! I recommend you make this for dinner tonight!

And I made these Pea Pesto Crostini for a mid-day snack. So fancy, right? Also, delicious & beautiful & easy.

...I might have just had one for breakfast...

I Like to Put Things in Jars (And What?)

I'm going out of town for a few days, so I had some citrus to "deal with" before packing up.

Luckily, we got this fabulous juicer for our wedding (thank you D, B, and E!):

I made grapefruit, lemon, and orange juices and stored them in jars. I'd be just as happy to have them in my fridge (for admiring) as I would be to drink them.

*high kick*

Somebunny Loves Me

I came home from work on Easter to find that a little someone had made me a basket of my favorite things... sneaky.

And I do love all these things... Isn't he so thoughtful (the Easter Bunny, I mean, of course)?

A Happy Morning

Starting the day with homemade granola and homemade yogurt (in a jar, no less).

Oh, and skies are clear today. I am happy.
