WEEKEND AT HOME / 84

lately i’m really crushing on green. there’s something so pretty and natural about it like bringing a bit of the forest indoors. plus, it looks so pretty mixed with pink. deep green can be a bit bold, but these interiors are really inspiring me to add a touch of green to my space. even if you’re a little shy about designing with green something as simple as a leafy green palm plant can make a big pop of color in a space. a few favorite color combinations to go with this deep forest green are white, pink, and gold. what do you think of this foresty hue? – erika

i love that they have a cinema downstairs where they play artsy films while you sit on plush vintage furniture (they said the husbands love waiting down there while their wives shop ha). and next door there is a cafe where you can shop their bags and have a free coffee and madeleine cookie. you seriously don’t want to leave!

and they don’t only sell clothing in the store…they have art prints, home goods, and perfect little gifts.

COOKBOOK CLUB PT 2

cookbook club | designlovefest

last month we had our second cookbook club meet up and this time the book we selected was Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and let me tell ya it was a hit! (you can read about our cookbook club here and what we made last month) every dish we made this time was so good, full of flavor, fresh and interesting. i really love his book and the intro is especially beautiful on his appreciation and understanding for Jerusalem and the rich history it carries for many people of different religions and backgrounds. victoria actually selected the book but it was pretty perfect timing as i had just returned from israel two days before and was able to pick up some spices for my dish during my time there. (ps, i am still putting together my israel travel post for you guys!)

here are the dishes we made/tried: 

victoria made the braised chicken and it was unbelievably good. she said it was time intensive but the chicken was fall of the bone tender and so flavorful. it called for chicken thighs and to be marinated over night and cooked with whole lemons. it was a real win! we gave her the grand prize.

elizabeth made the cauliflower with hazelnuts. it was the perfect weekday side dish for dinner. and she said it was very easy.

turkey meatballs – i (joanie) was really impressed with the ease of this dish. i love how many fresh herbs it used and also the grated zucchini added a ton of moisture and upped the veggie count! i ended up having to add bread crumbs because i didn’t let the moisture out of the zucchini well enough. really what i should have done and would do in the future is grate it, put it in a colander, sprinkle with salt, let sit for 15 minutes and then push the extra juice out of it. it’s amazing how much liquid they hold! the sauce that this recipe calls for is amazing and really makes the whole dish. i feel like this one is really family friendly. – joanie

bri – i made the squash with pine nuts, tzakiki, and za’atar. hardest part was cutting the squash (but i’m weak). the rest was a breeze. it gives more specific instructions on roasting (skin side down etc) but i just threw them in a cast iron pan and gave it a stir once or twice and it came out great. will definitely make that again!

jesse is hosting the next one on monday and the book is It’s All Good by Gwyneth Paltrow. if you’ve made something you loved from her book let me know!
