Post Punk Kitchen

Post image for Post Punk Kitchen

Because I escaped the city for this past holiday weekend, I never made it to pick up ingredients for this week’s recipe post. My fridge and food cabinets are something of a vacant wasteland at the moment. In replacement, I thought I’d share one of my favorite vegan recipe blogs, Post Punk Kitchen. The author is a down-to-earth vegan with one good hand in the kitchen. I love her point of view on food, and I often check out her blog for ideas. Here are some of her recipes I’m thinking I must try at home this month:

Creamy Avocado Salad: I’m not huge on mayonnaise-y potato salad because it’s so bad for you, but I’ve never thought of using avocado instead. Oh does this sound delicious.

Spinach Linguine with Edamame Pesto: Edamame is popping up everywhere these days. Just the other day I had a sandwich made with edamame hummus. Who knew? I’m all into exploring its many uses.

Perfect Grilled Portabellas: One of the best parts of summer is grilling. Just because this is traditionally a carnivorous pastime doesn’t mean there aren’t amazing veggie options as well. This recipe gives great tips on how to grill the perfect portabella. It’s also super healthy!

Omg Oven Baked Onion Rings: These onion rings look perfect for entertaining. I’m also thinking they’d go great with those aforementioned bello burgers.

Raw Strawberry Cheesecake: I have to admit, although I rarely eat it, I’m an enormous cheesecake lover. I’ve never thought of making a vegan cheesecake, let alone a completely raw one. I want to try this one out just to see how well it stands up against the real thing.

I ate the grilled portabellas for dinner tonight and they were to die for! so good! I am vegan and I am very picky about my sandwiches/burgers and this one was amazing! I also whipped up the potato salad to eat for lunch tomorrow, I tried a bite tonight and it is so fresh and yummy! Thanks for sharing :)

i found these images via little paper planes and they blew me away! they were taken on research trips for the chicago field museum, some as early as 1896. the color was added by hand to glass slides, resulting in images that combine the effects of photography and landscape painting. so incredibly beautiful.

DO: take a cold shower.

It’s that time of year again. The air is already so hot that a simple walk outside is enough to leave your body coated in sweat, but don’t let it scare you! Summer is meant for being outdoors. Let the lure of sunshine, warmth, and living life overcome the sterile cleanliness of air conditioned spaces. Explore the outdoors, lay in the grass, attend festivals, plant a garden, just go outside and GET DIRTY. Afterward you’ll have a chance to jump in the shower and clean off. But don’t just let it be any ordinary shower-turn the knob to cold, and let those capillaries open up. Feel the chills all over – the way your hair gets so extremely silky with cold water. Nothing says summer quite like the alive feeling you get from a cold shower.

we don’t get to see roger very often, so when he does come in it’s very exciting! he is looking very handsome with his summer shave. read an interview with him here :)

fp julia -Jun 06, 2011, 11:15AM

claudia -Jun 06, 2011, 11:09AM
i don't know Roger personally, but i have a husky/chow mix, and they shed INCESSANTLY. the short haircut is just to keep them more comfy in summer but they don't naturally look like that. HTH!

Music Nostalgia

Post image for Music Nostalgia

One of the awesome things about music is that there is so much of it to enjoy. Not only are people making new music every day, but there is tons of music which has already been made. You can go back and forth between looking for something new and seeking out good oldies. When I was a kid my musical world was a mix of influences from my deadhead older brother, my Americana-hippie mother, and my father who grew up with nothing but The Beatles, so I have great memories tied to some of that old time music. With the warm weather I find myself having some music nostalgia. Here’s a taste of what’s been playing on my iPod as of late.

I dont think it has as much to do with "trendy" or "playing dress up". I am a Native American and I think the traditional adornments are a beautiful way for anybody to express themselves and celebrate the culture of our country. The women of Heyoka Leather actually have Lakota blood in them. You might want to look at it that way instead of posting negative energy.

If there’s one thing Free People employees know how to do … it’s accessories. Everyone had on the best little details today, so I just had to get up close and personal.

As if the shoes weren’t cool enough on their own – she takes layering to the next level with crocheted socks.

Probably the coolest vintage bag I’ve seen…ever?

I’m a huge fan of layering on tons of cool necklaces. These ladies paired the look with awesome textures in their clothes for an even cooler vibe.

So subtle and beautiful!

This woman wears where she grew up on her hand (middle finger). A friend made her a ring depicting the street.

Basics pop with the addition of unique statement necklaces.

Is there any way to DIY a bag like that? It is so cool! I havn’t ever seen anything like it!!!

blank apparel - they're actually pieces made by our videographer and creative director. they don't have a shop up online yet, but you can shoot them an email at hellomadeinmetal@gmail.com if you're interested in getting a piece made :)

I try to speak proper English, if something is wrong understand me hehehe :D jenni I'm also very thin and often criticizing, I'm not against skinny people, only that a publisher with a too thin model doesn't go with the beautiful free people publishers are always thin models, but this time I don't consider while nothing looks good aesthetics of previous catalogs

ps: my bad, when I say 300, 200 or 150, I mean pixels ! :)
Liis -Jun 27, 2011, 6:09PM
click on the image and you'll be redirect to Flick's page. There, you can visualize all the sizes avaiable to download. It's better if you download the biggest size :) After that, when you'll have already the file on your PC, I believe the best way to find the size with good resolution for print, it's open the file on Photoshop. It's not the easiest way but it never fails! Once you have the file opened on Photoshop, you can fit it on a document with 210x297mm (A4 size) and the best resolution is 300. When you print an image, a 200 or 150 it's also good, but if you put 300, I'm sure it's gonna be AWESOME. Hope it works to all who have these doubts =) ! xoxo, Liis K.

Post image for DIY Fabric Covered Notebook

I first found out about Willow Rose one day when I stumbled upon her adorable blog. She posted lots of stuff that inspired me creatively, so I decided to find out more about the woman behind the blog. What I found out – excitingly – is that she’s a beautiful woman living in the UK who creates neat hand-made treasures.

I fell in love with these fabric covered notebooks she custom-makes for people. All of the fabrics she personally sources herself, and she’ll even cover actual books if you’d like! I love the idea of having one of my favorite books made special by covering it in beautiful fabric.

For this week’s DIY, I’ve asked Willow to show us how we can make one of these notebooks at home and she was kind enough to share =)
