MY GO-TO RECIPES

 image via

i’m fairly certain we all have those recipes that we reach to when we aren’t feeling inspired in the kitchen, or we’re having people over or we just want something tried and true. i have mine, which i’ll share below, but i’d also like to know what your go-to recipes are, family favorites, things that are predictable but not boring, that you can make on a semi-regular rotation without really getting sick of them. i find myself gravitating towards things that allow for leftovers, pasta bakes that are just as good re-heated, soups that last all week, things like that. here are my go-to recipes and i’d love to know yours! – joanie p.s. after i put this list together i realized that a lot of my meals are not healthy but these are genuinely what i make! i’ve always adhered to the rule, eat what you want, just don’t eat it all! 

from spoon fork bacon: i’ve simplified this by using dried herbs, double the shallot and skipping the turnip and using water instead of veggie broth and it’s still excellent. keeps well, and is really satisfying. i’ve made it over a dozen times and it’s always good.

from the woks of life: sounds exotic but once you make this once you’ll realize how approachable it is. and it’s reallllly good, i highly recommend trying it.

: the first time i made this was a couple of months ago and i’ve made it 4 + times since then. it’s super easy, inexpensive and a no fail recipe. i double the parmesan but everything else i do exactly as they say. i thought that using a high quality tomato paste was important but i’ve used the 89 cent option from the store and it works just as well.

: my sister introduced me to this recipe and it became a household favorite. it’s basically fancy mac + cheese with veggies. the ton of added kale makes me feel better about the loads of dairy in this recipe. we’ve added chicken sausage to it before which is also good if you’re wanting something with meat. this holds up really well and is great re-heated with hot sauce.

chicken curry: this recipe that we shared on the blog awhile back and that we still get DM’s about to this day. easiest meal in the world, and soooo good!

cast iron pizza: i keep trader joe’s frozen pizza crusts in the freezer and pop them out when we’re in a pinch. it’s easy, completely adaptable and who doesn’t love pizza?!

chicken noodle soup: a tried and true recipe for me. i’ve been making this for 6+ years and still love it.

WEEKEND AT HOME / 113

i recently switched out a pendant light in my apartment, and it made such a difference that i’m a little bit addicted to swapping them out now! one of my favorite types of lights are mid-century globe lights. there are so many different ways to use them: indoors, outdoors, above a bar, in a commercial space, or as a main statement piece in the entryway. they look great in just about every kind of space! they have such a simple, classic look. which one is your favorite?

$1000 ARTICLE FURNITURE GIVEAWAY!

so excited about this BIG furniture giveaway and to show you inside our studio space! i’ve been wanting to finish our office for awhile and haven’t gotten around to it but we finally pulled the trigger and got it done with the help of our friends at Article! and to celebrate, one lucky winner will receive a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR shopping spree to spend on anything on ! you can get a few chairs, a table, or even a sofa. click through below to enter and to get a coupon code! we’ve been using their furniture for a few years now and they have tons of cool pieces.

now for a little update on our studio cottage! the goal was really to create a cohesive space that flowed together and felt cozy, relaxed and finished. we worked to complete not only the big pieces but the details as well, everything from the plants to candles and to have the furniture and colors all make sense together. our office isn’t traditional by any means (which we love!) so we went with pieces that have more of a relaxed feeling that fits our work place. you can see some of our article furniture in action below! we started the furniture picks with those  because they’re so good and they really set the overall vibe of the studio, and we added , the , and the …

 

we also created a mood board! i have been collecting pieces of inspiration from all of the world during my travels but most of it just lives in my drawers at home so it’s really fun to finally have a place to display some of it! to create the board we covered a foam core board with white linen (stapled it to the back with a staple gun and then just nailed the board to the wall). the total cost of the project is under $50, foam core, linen (which you can buy by the yard at your local fabric store), staples, nails and pins for hanging. here we can collect inspiration, memories, and document past projects!
