HEIRLOOM TOMATO TART

i’m not going to lie, using phyllo dough was a mistake. we made this on a super hot day and i had to brush olive oil on every sheet of it and layer it in the baking dish. if i was to make it again i would use puff pastry. the other important note is that you have to let the crust cool completely before adding the cheese mixture and you want the cheese mixture to be cold or it will all melt together and make it really difficult to cut. these are all things we learned the hard way so take our lessons and run with them! this is the perfect thing to make with all the gorgeous tomatoes that are at grocery stores and farmer’s market. summer tomatoes are the best! – joanie

what you’ll need: we adapted this recipe from an old issue of Gourmet Magazine 

• 1 package of phyllo dough or puff pastry (can be found in the frozen section of the grocery store)
• 4 -5  medium sized heirloom tomatoes sliced
• 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
• 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
• 1 zest of a lemon
• 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
• 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
• basil as garnish
• 2 teaspoons salt

• pre-heat oven to 350. bring the phyllo dough to room temperature before unwrapping. once warmed unroll and cover with a damp cloth or paper towel as to keep the thin sheets from drying out while working on them. with one sheet at a time, lightly brush olive oil or butter over the surface of the phyllo sheet. then add it to your baking dish. (we used a 10 inch pie dish but any oven safe dish will work as well!) repeat process for about 10 sheets depending on how thick you would like the crust. remove the excess crust by cutting with a knife or kitchen scissors. bake for 15 minutes on 350 degrees or until golden brown. remove from oven to cool completely.

• to make the filling mix the mascarpone, parmesan, ricotta and lemon zest in a bowl, and the olive oil and salt. place in the fridge at least 30 minutes to firm up the cheese filling.

SUMMER WHITES

something about summer that makes me want to wear white every single day. i love a white blouse tucked into jean shorts, worn half unbuttoned over a bikini, or tied up at the waist with your favorite skirt. here are few white tops i have my eye on, most of them at a very reasonable price! – joanie

 $35  – i love the romance of an off the shoulder blouse.

 $128 – i’m okay with long sleeves in the summer heat as long as they aren’t skin tight. this top has a fun, laid back feeling.

 $98  – such a pretty little piece with the lace ruffles around the edges. i love anything that feels victorian!

 $45 – high neck and bare shoulders all the way! i like how they styled her hair on top of her head for this look too, i’d do the same.

  $99 – i own this top and have worn it so many times this summer. such a simple piece but it’s great with jeans or a skirt. half linen, half cotton.

   $45 –  very into swiss dot with anything and everything!

 $40 – can’t belive this is H&M, i love it so much. the soft v-neck and the delicate sleeve detail.

 $30 – simple and sweet.

 $30 – for the petite people in our lives! and love the cinches waist.

WEEKEND AT HOME / 122

hammocks have a way of manifesting that peaceful easy feeling. they conjure up the feeling of summer: warm sun, swaying in the breeze, afternoon naps. i’m all about transforming your home to be a place of relaxation, and hammocks are my favorite way to make your patio feel like a secluded getaway. i love the idea of an interior hammock too! they’re are SO easy to put in your yard, why not make your yard a private paradise this weekend with a hammock?

BASIC STYLE

the most important part of your wardrobe are the basic items, the pieces that you can wear almost every day, layered or paired with jeans, tucked into skirts, tied over dresses, with a pair of shorts, etc. you can’t build an outfit without them and even though they aren’t always the most fun thing to spend money on, they usually give you the most bang for your buck. one of my all time favorite places to buy great basics is . i love their transparency and i also love their clothing. the designs are thoughtful, good fabrics, nice quality and colors. a few great looking staples that they currently have in stock below! – joanie

  $55 – very into these striped cotton button ups for summer, tied at the waist, over a swimsuit, with jeans, the options are endless!

 $68 – a cami is a great piece to add to your wardrobe, it’s perfect under a blazer during the day and then on it’s own in the evening. i love them tucked into full waisted 50’s style skirts.

 $98 – this has such a classic feeling, i love a slightly oversized silk button down, buttoned all the way to the top and tucked in or with a few buttons undone and a pretty lace bra peaking out.

 $78 – i heavily rotate between a utility type jacket like this and a denim jacket. they’re great day or night.

 $30 – if you haven’t tried a bodysuit, now is the time! they are the perfect layering piece as they don’t ride up. i love them with tighter fitting skirts as you don’t get that tucked in line.

  $45 – i love slightly oversized sweatshirts. they give me the feeling of vintage Champion from the 70’s.

 $15 – a little boxy and a little cropped. a great white tee to pair with high waisted denim.

 $38 – loving all the soft colors this crewneck sweatshirt comes in.

  $155 – if you feels tuck between sandals and sneakers every day, throw these into the mix. ladylike and simple!
