Post image for Thai Coconut Cucumber Salad from Love & Lemons

This week’s recipe comes from one of my favorite food blogging duos, Jack and Jeanine of Love & Lemons. Their blog is full of healthy (mostly vegetarian) and lactose free recipes that will make you salivate. Whenever I’m looking for healthy inspiration this is definitely a blog that I turn to. This week they prepared for us a Thai Coconut Cucumber salad that makes me yearn for late outdoor summer dinners. Read more »

I made this as part of dinner tonight, a side of an asian put-together meal. It was very satisfying, very Thai! I omitted the edamame (because I didn't want to bother with it) and tofu (since the rest of the meal I made focused largely on tofu), but instead used beech mushrooms, which worked out really well. I am a huge fan of mint used in savory dishes, and this certainly pleased me. After my boyfriend and I had our shares, plus the rest of the meal, I went back to finish the salad. I couldn't resist.

After church I saw this on twitter and thought "well I know what I'm having for lunch!" We didn't have red curry, so I learned how to make it! Instead of tofu I substituted with tilapia that had been broiled in butter and garlic salt. Since we were lacking arugula I just used romaine lettuce and added some spinach leaves in. I also sautéed some purple onions with a bit of butter, some of the red curry paste, and salt, then added those to the mix. I made it for my mother and I, and it was just delectable! We loved it. Even my brother (who doesn't like salad) was trying to devour mine. Thank you for posting this recipe! It was delicious. Next time I'll probably try using portobellos :)

Hey, The idea has the ‘woooow’ factor, simply superb. The light blue colour and photo-frames in bathroom is amazing. Such fruity colours, too good.

absolutely amazing advice... and to add on to the one with the mirrors, just fill the whole wall opposite of a window with mirrors.

Post image for Flower Mandalas by Kathy Klein

Love doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel about these flower mandalas by Arizona based artist Kathy Klein. After carefully arranging the flowers and photographing them, she leaves them behind for others to find and enjoy. The pieces are called “Danmalas” which in Sanskrit means “the giver of garlands.” Read more »

Post image for Ask Brian: Eating Cake

“Dear Brian…A few months ago my long term boyfriend and I broke up, but on good terms. Even after breaking up we’ve continued seeing each other with the premise that there are “no expectations.” With the informality of this relationship-thing with my Ex, I’ve kept my options open and have found myself really liking another guy. Although I still have feelings for my Ex, I also want to explore these developing feelings for this new man. I don’t want to lose my Ex, but I don’t want to regret not getting to know this new fella. What should I do??” Read more »

Post image for An Editorial We Love: “The Free Spirit” Arizona Muse for I-D Magazine

Arizona Muse’s expression tells a thousand stories in I-D magazine’s summer 2012 issue. She has that look in her eyes that’s so intense you’re too scared to look deeper – you just stand from afar and admire. She looks determined but at the same time a little afraid — the perfect feeling to portray if you’re translating the cowgirl look, and she’s nailed it…

Kris! How wonderful to read about your jewelry and see how your work has matured. We met over three years ago in a birthing class when pregnant with our firsts. I've thought of you off and on wondering if you were able to keep creating through the young years of family life. I'm so happy to see you have! What a beautiful family too.
