This year I’m doing something I haven’t really done: I’m editing my wardrobe so I have room for new fall clothes. Who am I?! It kinda feels organized, slightly fancy and something Lucky Mag would tell you to do. I usually read these types of suggestions in magazines while I’m getting my nails done and feel all inspired to do it when I get home but never do. Other things usually end up being more exciting to me. But this year, I’m actually doing it!
Cleaning out my drawers has made me realize that I cannot own enough classic plain white t-shirts. I own a lot of ’em. And I love ’em all (minus the ones with food stains on them).
I feel like a classic avocado toast might be food version of a classic white t-shirt. It’s what you could eat every day and not tire of it. Refreshing, simple and so good! I love it.
I teamed up with LeafTV for one last video on my favorite snack EVER! I would include a recipe below but that’s kinda silly. You know what you’re doing when it comes to this.
I have dreams of opening up a little sandwich stand that would be called “Stuff On Toast.” I feel like I’ve mentioned this before. Oh and I’d serve pie too because after you eat something on toast you might want a piece of pie. You might not, actually, but I just want to be prepared in case you do. And maybe coffee. So pie, toast and cappuccinos. It would be our three life necessities under the same small, shack-like roof.
This rendition of Avocado Toast is a bit different. Having white miso in my fridge has become a staple. I love it because in the colder months I can throw it in a pot with hot water, along with seasonal vegetables and make a quick miso soup. I’m obsessed. In the warmer months it’s awesome to have on hand for making quick miso dressing. A little ginger and sesame oil and rice vinegar are added and that’s kind of it. .
If Avocado Toast were a person they’d totally be celebrity that wouldn’t be able to leave their house without a swarm of security. Avocado toast is internet famous–it’s been blogged about, Instagramed about like a million times. And for good reason. It might be my most favorite, simplest snack/lunch in the entire world. Sometimes the simplest things make us happy.
This is a new take on the cult classic, involving grapefruit and hazelnuts (but pictured – because I can’t write a proper grocery list – pistachios, which work equally well). Grapefruit and avocado salads have been around for quite some time now, so I figured I’d put it all on a piece of toast, top it with toasted hazelnuts, some olive oil and a little salt, and call it a day.
This is the last time I mention pancakes. Promise. (JK I would never promise such a thing.)
Today I’m bringing you Coconut Pancakes. For this pancake situation, I teamed up with my friends Geri and Erin of LEAFtv. If you’re unfamiliar, LEAFtv is a how-to concept (and soon-to-be shoppable video site) that’s fresh, fun and beautifully shot. And! Their music is always really awesome. You’ll start by watching one video and then find yourself having watched 10. They’re addicting!
We shot about six recipes/videos in one day and this is the first one to be released. These pancakes are some of my favorites–the flavors remind me of being on a tropical island with a pina colada and a book in my hand. I need this in my life soon. If you’re currently reading this from your iPad sitting on the beach, then I’m jealous. If you’re not, then, well, we have these pancakes.
