if only i could rewind and relive the holidays... family time, board games, knitting, warm fires, and endless cooking. here are some of my favorite dishes prepared by my mom and dad:
+ rack of lamb persillade with sauteed portabella mushrooms
+ my aunt marina's breakfast crepes with meyer lemon and sugar
+ lasagna with warm broccoli salad
+ homemade vanilla + mocha ice cream in ici waffle cones
+ tomato and goat cheese tart
+ french granny apple tart
+ affagato (made with my mom's new espresso maker)
clearly we're big ina garten fans. so now that my stomach is officially in withdrawal, it's now back to the basics: micro greens + asian pears.

last night with friends: game night + hannukah fun.
nothing like board games, erica + alex's homemade latkes with applesauce + sourcream, and my homemade cinnamon/raison rugelah. no, i'm not jewish, but the food... oh my, the food...
above: erica + alex's menorah featuring their pug tank. amazing.

i'm mildly obsessed with interiors - the private, special, inner sanctums that speak volumes about the people that inhabit them. i love a good behind-the-scenes look at just about anything, and thankfully the selby allows me to indulge in voyeuristic tendencies without being a total weirdo. favorites...
1. confetti systems
2. lindsay + fitzhugh (i went to school with fitzhugh)
3. and most recently annie novak at eagle street farm via primoeza
