Summer is over, which means I had to go out by revisiting my absolute favorite tomato tart. I know the mustard sounds weird, but it makes the dish. The tart works best with the sweet juicy tomatoes abundant at the markets in August, but honestly, standard grocery store fare works too.
We took a long weekend trip to the Smoky Mountains, a place I haven’t been since I was a kid. We rented the most adorable cabin, which was perfect for drinking wine and watching fireflies at night.
My favorite was the Glass Hotel. Beautiful prose, and enough twists that I didn’t want to put it down.
i have been feeling very eh about everything, especially my wardrobe, so i went to my old stand by billy reid. i haven’t bought anything there in years, but found some gems to bring home. the fabrics are so lovely and feel wonderful on.
A gorgeous Japanese knife and some adorable French coquettes
a rainy weekend called for finally trying this recipe for salted chocolate cake. i cut the sugar and let it underbake slightly, and it fulfilled my dreams of french decadence.
