ROASTED POTATO AND RADISH SALAD

roasted potato and radish salad | designlovefest

i’ve been on a big potato kick lately, roasting them, boiling, baking, eating them plain with butter, with eggs, making them into a salad. the options are endless! ivan and i wanted to call this a summer salad but we decided it required to much use of the oven for that name, so we’ll just call it a delicious salad that’s packed full of fresh herbs! – joanie

what you’ll need:

• 1 pound of small or fingerling potatoes
• 8-10 red radishes
• 1 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
• 3 green onions diced
• 8 oz burrata cheese
• 2 cups spring peas
• 1  large shallot thinly sliced
• 1 cup mint chopped

dressing:
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 2 garlic cloves finely diced
• 3-4 thyme sprigs
• 1 1/2 teaspoons dijon mustard
• zest of 1 lemon
• 1 lemon juiced
• salt to taste

• pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. wash and slice the larger radishes in half. pat dry and lay on a baking sheet. drizzle with olive oil and a pinch of salt, we also added a few springs of thyme. bake for 20 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside.

• fill a large pot with water, add salt and bring to a boil. add the potatoes and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. once cooked drain water and set the potatoes in a large bowl to cool.

• in a frying pan melt the butter on medium heat. add the thyme, garlic, mustard, lemon juice and zest. stir for about 4-5 minutes until all the flavors have incorporated. set the dressing aside.

• using the same pan as the dressing, fill with about 1 inch of oil (we used avocado oil for its mild flavor and high smoking point) heat on medium heat and add the thinly sliced shallots. cook for about 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. remove from oil and place on a paper towel.

• to assemble the salad, add the radishes to the same bowl of potatoes, then the parsley, mint, green onions, fried shallots, spring peas. break apart the burrata into smaller chunks and spread evenly throughout the salad. drizzle the dressing on top and toss! finish with more salt and pepper and serve slightly warm, you won’t regret it!

MORINGSTAR FARMS OUTDOOR DINING!

outdoor dining with MorningStar Farms | designlovefest

i’m really excited about this post! before every shoot i have a vision in my head of how i want it all to come together and my goal is to always match the vision with the final images but this shoot exceeded my vision. it was the perfect light, all the decor came together perfectly in a relaxed way. this is our second post in a series of three for . it was really fun to hear all your feedback on our first post, lots of people are excited about us featuring more veggie/vegan friendly foods and we’re excited too! this time it’s all about their  ® Spicy Black Bean Burger, which has been a fave of mine for years.

the whole inspiration of this series is to encourage everyone (meat eaters included!) to make room on your grill this summer for vegetarian and vegan foods. and that it’s a category of cuisine that doesn’t need to be exclusive, you can grill it and serve it right along side a piece of meat. we’re hoping that these images make you want to bust out your grill (or head to your local park) and enjoy a meal outside!

we threw in a ton of colorful elements into this outdoor dinner, gingham napkins, bright florals, mismatched table linens, etc. i like to mix and match different prints and colors that are all in the same family but that make it feel a little more rustic and natural. there is a time and a place for perfect dinner parties but outdoor BBQs are a great time to keep it low key and uncomplicated with food and decor.

for drinks we served lemonade with mint and lemonade ice cubes which keep your drink cold but don’t dilute it as it melts and iced coffee with coffee ice cubes (which are so easy and always a hit with guests!)

one of the keys to keeping hosting from becoming overwhelming is to keep the food on the simple side, you don’t need tons of different options, just a solid main course with some sides and a simple dessert. for the burgers, we decided to mix it up and serve them with lettuce wraps instead of buns. we offered toppings like crumbled feta cheese, regular and beet hummus and cucumber salad (recipe below!). the feta paired with the ® Spicy Black Bean Burger was a solid match!

for sides, we did individual foil packs on the grill with potatoes and radish. to make these, you simply cut the potatoes into wedges and slice the radishes in half, drizzle with olive oil, salt and Herb De Provence and place inside foil squares. wrap the sides up and place on the grill. these will take longer than the burgers to cook through so put them on first!

the cucumber salad is two cucumbers diced, half a red onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, all mixed together! you can eat it on it’s own or top on the burger, it’s delicious both ways!

and our simple dessert was just sliced strawberries, tossed with raspberries, fresh mint and topped with whip cream, yum!

throw a blanket over a picnic table or create a place to eat on the ground by spreading pillows and blankets out on the floor. entertaining doesn’t have to be complicated! focus on creating a relaxed environment and everyone will have a good time!

cheers to eating outdoors more this summer! xx bri

STEAMED HALIBUT WITH MANGO SALSA

steamed halibut | designlovefest

bri and i went to a work dinner a couple of weeks ago and they served some steamed halibut in banana leaves. it was delicious and bri said we had to try to make it for ourselves and i’m so glad we did! it was fun to experiment with a new way of cooking fish and it turned out great. there is no oil in this recipe and the fish is tender, flaky and flavorful. i thought it would be intimidating to make but it was surprisingly easy. we got our at world market and it worked perfectly. the halibut we purchased at Whole Foods.  – joanie

APPETIZERS ON THE ROAD!

appetizers on the road | designlovefest

this summer i’m all about the short weekend road trip. living in california affords me all sorts of mini vacation options, there are so many different places to explore and i’m always itching to go. one of my favorite brands to work with and one we’ve been creating content with for years is . i love their products! so i’m excited to be working with them all summer long to bring fun and easy entertaining ideas with their new . one of the best pre-road trip tips is to pack appetizers and drinks so that when you first arrive to your destination you don’t have to go to the store, or spend a lot of time in the kitchen. you can set out a spread and start relaxing right away. every minute counts on a short weekend trip!

this past weekend, justin and i headed to ojai to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. we stayed at this really beautiful airbnb and spent the weekend exploring and lounging around the house. we headed up on friday after work, it’s only about an hour drive, and once we arrived we opened the rosé, set out all the food i’d prepped and hung out by the pool. when prepping food for a trip there are a few things i like to keep in mind. these packing tips work for any size group, could be a girl’s road trip or a romantic trip for two!

  • i like to prep as much as i can beforehand. that means washing all the produce, putting crackers and meats and cheese in glass containers, slicing the bread, and bringing napkins and utensils so that they are at the ready. you never know what a rental house will come prepared with.
  • i pick a mixture of sweet, salty, crunchy and creamy things to bring. i try to focus on healthier items, the gourmet almonds (we packed the and the flavors), fresh fruit and veggies, dips like hummus and a couple of cheeses and meats. the almonds pack a lot of flavor so they pair well with simply flavors like a mellow goat cheese or a radish dipped in butter. castelvetrano olives are my fave and they work really well with the rosemary sea salt almonds.
  • when arranging an appetizer set up on the road, you can set out the spread in the same glass containers you used to pack things in, which also lets you pop them in the fridge when you’re done eating. i pack a few cloth napkins and set those out and then use any small bowls and plates that the house might have for the almonds, olives and pits. also a cutting board is helpful so people can easily dig in.

one of my favorite things about renting a home instead of staying at a hotel is being able to have access to a kitchen and not having to eat out for every meal. you save a lot of money, and it’s generally healthier to eat food at home. , it gives you the opportunity to explore a places local farmer’s market or any specialty stores in town. justin and i went to the coolest farmer’s market in Ojai, they had such beautiful produce.

MORNINGSTAR FARMS 4TH OF JULY PARTY

MorningStar Farms 4th of July party | designlovefest

i’m super excited to announce a summer long partnership with , we have planned out some really fun entertaining content and i can’t wait to share it with you! MorningStar Farms offers vegan and vegetarian options and we’re focusing on all of their burgers (check out all their products, !) the whole campaign is built around the idea that we don’t need to label ourselves as a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy those types of products and that this summer everyone can make room on their grill for those options. i love the mentality and the openness it creates in the conversation of food, that it doesn’t have to be exclusively meat or veggie. it can be intimidating to label yourself as eating only one way but i love including more plant-based meals in my diet for health and the environment.
