The sun is finally coming out and spring menu planning is in full effect. Last week I was having dinner at the NoMad and couldn’t pass up the buttered radishes with sea salt. What came out was beyond perfection- perfectly butter coated radishes with a mound of sea salt on the side. I was reminded how much I love that crispy crunch of a spring radish and that they are so much more than a salad topping! Here are some great radish recipes that are the perfect addition to any spring meal. keep it simple with butter and sea salt like the NoMad offset the tartness of with these honey-roasted radishes. this braised butter dish would be great to server with who knew by adding a little honey and cinnamon an popping them in the oven, you would have a great new topping for your yogurt! images via links above
As I write this post, my apartment was filled with the most delicious smells, that of fresh laundry and lilacs. May is filled with two flowers that aren’t available for long, but when they are, don’t think twice, just pick them up. So, today’s post is short and sweet, go pick up some lilacs and peonies-STAT! images via 1 // 2
Happy Monday! I spent some quality time at my local Ikea over the weekend. I was a woman on a mission and while I had a list, a few additional items somehow made it into the basket (I really needed more dishtowels and tupperware, I swear!) I was on he hunt for some vases to paint, as per my post last week, but I wasn’t feeling my options…the hunt continues. Onto the flowers… Daffodils, that perfect pop of yellow to brighten up any room. They remind me of my parents house and the walking trails around their property. At the top of the hill under a lone oak tree there is a patch of bright yellow daffodils blooming at the first signs of warm weather. A bunch will run you around $1.99 and tend to only be in stores for a few weeks, so don’t doddle and pick up a few bunches of these beauties. image via The Meadowbrook Blog you should check it out!
