Do-over

Some pretty flowers from an author's office today.


Can I get a do-over on the weekend, please? Can someone make this happen? We cannot seem to get rid of a tummy bug that keeps making the rounds in our household. Just when you think it's gone it strikes another member of the family. Luckily not all at the same time. I feel like we're slowly emerging from the haze and I'm hoping we've seen the back of this nasty virus.

Food:

Ugh, I don't really want to discuss food after that tummy bug intro, but there were some great posts out there today!

Some of the food bloggers are reviewing The Sprouted Kitchen by Sara and Hugh Forte. Those of us not lucky enough to get an advance copy will have to content ourselves with the recipes shared on the blogs: La Tartine Gourmande shares a recipe for toasty nuts, Canelle et Vanille reviews the ranchero breakfast tostada, Naturally Ella shares some roasted tomato soup, and Megan at A Sweet Spoonful cooks up some tasty almond meal cookies. I'm most excited about the coconut loaf that Jeanine and Jack at Love and Lemons posted today.

Here is the perfect recipe to pay homage to the sweet corn of summer and usher in Autumn: Andean Potato & Cheese Soup from The Kitchn.

I love this film by The Selby for NYTimes T Magazine on chefs cooking in the woods with morels they've just hunted with Connie Green.

QUITOKEETO is stocked and ready to go! Head over there for some raw honey, a gorgeous picnic knife, some sunflower oil, or even a vintage yellow dutch oven. Hurry up, things go fast (I'd suggest signing up for the newsletter so you're in the know).

Interior design:

Wow, check out this insane beach house from Rethink Design Studio (found via Young House Love). I'm in love with the white decor and pops of yellow and red. Yellow and gray have to be my favorite colors of the year. Also, there is a yellow desk in the bathroom!!

Win a beautiful print to decorate your home from Little Brown Pen.

Fashion/style:

Coveting these adorable Roald Dahl mugs found today on Cup of Jo. The BFG! Swoon.

Head over to Bonnie at Going Home to Roost to win a Sea and Cake triangle necklace.

You could win a $150 shopping spree at Shop Sosie, enter at A Beautiful Mess (you do have to create your own Pinterest board).

That's it! See you tomorrow.
