Happy Friday! Before you dig into your sunny weekend plans, check out what we're loving this week. Enjoy!

FRIDAY FAVES - 7.29.22

- Is this Pantry Pasta the perfect weeknight slam dunk?! I think yes. Throw in all of that fresh zucchini you've got hanigng around.

- The cuteness is WILD in this piece by Bess Kalb, "Passive Aggressive Emails With My Toddler About Dinner."

- Can you guess what color Leslee painted our new brick and mortar wine shop?!

- Just found out that Brooklinen makes a DEEPLY fluffy robe. Mmm.

- Missing Choco Tacos like the rest of the country? Here's a simple video on how to make your own. Or, you can watch Claire Saffitz make one!

Have a good one!

Hello! I hope your week was awesome. The ground is thawing out here in Minnesota! Life is good. Now read this list of fun things!

FRIDAY FAVES - 3.18.22


- A pasta-themed tarot deck? I could get into that...

- I love this Instagram account that chronicles one woman's ritual of taking a long, daily walk. It's lovely. Oh, and she has amaaaazing long white hair!

- The best part of Easter—in my opinion—are those addictive little Cadbury mini eggs. So crackly and creamy! Here are 10 things you might not know about this seasonal snack.

- Speaking of Easter! Have you checked out our Easter + Passover SHOP section? Leslee has picked out a bunch of wines to go with whatever you plan on feasting on during the spring holidays.

- Candles shaped like little dumplings? Um, excuse me?! 

Have a great weekend!

5 Homemade Mother's Day Meals

Mother's Day is this weekend and we're thinking it might just be the perfect time to revive the old breakfast-in-bed idea. It's thoughtful, easy to execute at home, and sooo totally vintage [wink]. Whether you want to crank out something warm and sweet for breakfast or treat your mother figure to a classy dinner, below you'll find some excellent ideas, including a recipe from our friend Chef Mike Shannon. Get inspired! What sort of treat would make your mom swoon this Sunday?

Oooooh baby, these morsels look decadent! This recipe for Chocolate Swirl Buns is Deb Perelman's simplified take on traditional, chocolatey Babka. All the gooey pockets of chocolate you could want, but much easier to execute. Nice!
PAIR WITH: Domaine des Terres Dorées "FRV 100" - This frothy, raspberry-laced Gamay will pick up on all those chocolatey notes.
