I love pasta. I can’t deny it. I would be a terrible candidate for a low carb diet because I’m certain I couldn’t function without pasta in my life. Truthfully, I never get sick of it.Angel hair is my fave. I love how thin and skinny it is. But more importantly, I love that it takes 2 minutes to cook. What else can you honestly “cook” in 2 minutes? I can think of very few things that taste as good as angel hair.

Sometimes I’m frantic and starved. As soon as its out of the pot, I coat it in good olive oil {thanks for the tip, Ina}, parmesan cheese, sea salt & pepper. Then I dive right in.

Other times I have more patience. So I’m adding these onto my “to do” list….

{1. Roasted Cherry Tomato / 2. Cauliflower and Thyme / Chive Blossoms and Creme Fraiche}.

Tutti Fruity

There’s nothing more summery than a colorful fruity pattern. I’m in love with most of these and can’t seem to get enough of these happy and bold colors in my life {and R + M’s wardrobes}.

{1. Watermelon swimsuit / 2. Watermelon Shower Curtain / 3. Watermelon flats / 4. Fruity tray / 5. Watermelon girls dress / 6. Pineapple print / 7. Watermelon cake / 8. Fruit measuring cups / 9. Watermelon garland}.

Weekend


weekend / papery and cakery


I promise Cakery Fridays will return shortly {perhaps in time for Baby Miles to be our taste tester}. In the meantime thought I would share some of my weekend notes with you.

+ All of this Easter talk has made me want to whip up a batch of deviled eggs. Or decorate a few like this or this?

+ On second thought, I might just have to indulge in Ali’s matzo toffee, very similar recipe to the one above.

+ I picked up a small container of daffodils of and hyacinths at the market this week and they are currently sitting pretty in my bathtub window. Cross your fingers for them, I’m becoming quite the botanist.

+ I am fixated on purchasing a jumpsuit for the summer. Or a romper. Or both.

+ I’ve had my eye on this light fixture for awhile and need to find a home for him.

+ R + M are taking swim lessons which has been an “experience” to say the least. The softening blow is watching my little people swim around in this bathing suit and this one.

+ NBA playoffs start this weekend. My beloved Heat will be dominating most of my thoughts / conversations for the next few months. And causing me to search for a million cool ways to wear white. Like this.

Wishing you a weekend of matzo toffee, deviled eggs and lots of basketball.

xoxo,

Niki
