the weekend cast

Good morning ladies + gents! I'm up early this morning to write the weekend cast. Procrastination: it happens to the best of us. I'm sipping on a luxurious latté and looking forward to a quiet morning in the office *fingers crossed*. Also, dreaming about the fluffy milk bread sandwiches we ate in Tokyo. The breakfast pictured above was on our first day out and about. Oh how I miss it!

Around the web this week we've got a spin on traditional cookies, skin supplements (both internal and external), funky earrings that make me want to book a flight to Havana, the most beautiful smoothies you've ever seen, and more right below.

My plan this weekend is to check out rockaway beach with my friend Val, and eat all of the fish tacos in sight. I also want to see a movie and maybe go on a day trip with my brother. Seems like tomorrow will be a rainy saturday, so maybe we'll try an extensive cooking project like homemade croissants. Do you have recommendations for what to do on a rainy day in Brooklyn? And how about you? What do you have planned? 

Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

It was foggy and gray outside; my farmer’s market plans were quickly abolished. I moved sluggishly out of bed, my eyes took an eternity to focus on the room in front of me. I brewed some coffee, sat on the couch, contemplated what was next. I knew I wanted to take on a hefty weekend baking project. Because when, if not on a rainy saturday, would you go through the trouble of making dough from scratch? 

Parisian Dinner Party: Charcuterie, Cheese & Vegan "Boards"

When thinking about the guests at my party, I recognized that it was a diverse bunch. My brother's friend Jakob was coming, who is a vegan. My mom is a cheese-lover, and my father adores salami. So I figured this was the perfect chance to create a trio of "boards" if you will. I love setting these up on my living room coffee table so that as guests come in, they can nibble. It also buys you (the host) some time to put together finishing touches. 

Cinco de Mayo Dip: My Favorite Hot-Oil Guacamole, Extra-Chunky

For a while I contemplated sharing a recipe for anything other than guacamole because I get it...how many times can we sing praise for mashed avocado with cilantro and lime? I hear you. But wait... what if you don't have a go-to recipe for your favorite guac? What if you're always eyeballing this and that, sometimes achieving avocado nirvana, other times blinking doubly as you taste your acidic concoction? It has taken me a long time but I have found my favorite recipe, and I rarely stray from it.
