1) Michelle Obama in Vintage!
Our First Lady is so classy. *Sigh
2) Five Easy-to-Make Deluxe Gifts for Under $15, a guest post by Max Wong on Wise Bread
Wow! I’m going to keep this in mind for gifts throughout the year. I love the idea of giving orchids, succulents, and miniature rose bushes as presents. And I am not even good with house plants! But this article makes them seem so easy and achievable. Also: re-purposing cashmere sweaters into hats & mittens? Brilliant!
3) Free Simple Baking eBook by Jules Clancy of Stonesoup
I love Jules’ recipes. They are spot on. And her simple recipes (most with 5 ingredients or less) are delicious and easy. Also since I’m usually only cooking for me and the Man, it’s great to see cooking and baking recipes for two people. Yea for minimal leftovers!
Anyway, I was thrilled to see this holiday baking ebook. I have made the clafoutis recipe. Amazing. And I was drooling on myself reading the ice cream section. And the cheesecake recipe. Amazing. I am planning to make the Little Bailey’s Cheesecake for a holiday dinner party I am having on Sunday. Easy. And amazing.
Happy Solstice! Did you see the eclipse last night? Me neither. I was sleeping. Anyway, we will have more daylight for a while. Hooray!
