Weekend Wrap Up: 11.15.15

Happy Sunday

What a crazy week! It was a race to the finish line, but I am happy to say that the last of my major projects for the year came to a close yesterday. The last week was comprised of very long days of cooking and shooting. I will be sure to share some of those photos as soon as they are published.

Now it is time to take a very short break and then get focused on creating some holiday magic. I have a bunch of ideas bouncing around in my head that I can't wait to share with you. Bring on the eggnog!

savour... a little breather


1 Critical Bikes - on Amazon. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had upgraded from my old bike with far too many gears that I never used to a single speed bike. This is the one I got. I love it. I went for the most basic matte black, but as you can see there are many styles and colors. The options are staggering. Check them out on Amazon or shop criticalcycles.com.

2 Falksalt Smoked Sea Salt Flakes - on Amazon. I have 8 different salts in my cupboard. I feel like a crazy person. This latest smoke version makes 9. I bought it for a recipe shoot and loved it. I'm not sure how much smoke flavor it added to the dish, but as a finishing salt you do get a hint of smoke flavor. The flakes themselves are brownish and smell divine.

3 Q Card Phone Case / Wallet - on Amazon. Game. Changer. I will never carry a wallet again. This case handily holds my ID, two credit cards, and cash. It is truly one of those things that makes you say 'why didn't I do this sooner'? They are available for just about any current model phone.

4 Cuisipro Julienne Peeler - on Amazon. I don't know why I did not own one of these before, but I just purchased one this week. Forget about spiralizing. This thing is super simple and tucks into a corner of a drawer. Make shoestring potatoes, carrot matchsticks for salad, or long zucchini 'noodles' for pasta sauce. If you don't have one, get one.
