Something about summer just makes me want to do, do DO! So much to do, and so little time. Admittedly, in the blazing heat that DC, and many other parts of the country, are currently experiencing it can be a challenge. The wonders of air conditioning and the beauty of summer overcomes in the end.

The result has been lovely mornings at the Dupont farmers market and a literal baking bonanza these past few weeks. More to come on the latter success.


Easier to eat healthy when everything looks so yummy 🙂

I also went to the last day of the Smithsonian Folklife festival which was HOT (weather-wise) but still very cool. There were some colorful murals on display that I thought worth sharing.


Easy Quiche and Sweater Warmth

Been up to a few things these past weeks…

Crustless Quiche of shallots, ham, mozzarella, mushrooms, and spinach. In a bowl mixed up four eggs with salt, pepper, 1 cup of cream. Cook the shallots and mushrooms in a pan (I used a cast iron one that I could then put in the oven). Once they are cooked soft throw in the ham and spinach, then pour the egg/cream mixture over. Throw a cup of cheese over the top, then pop into the oven for 15 minutes at 425, then turn down to 350 to cook until golden brown on top. Enjoy!

And inspired from the delightful tutorial on A Beautiful Mess I turned this pretty but huge sweater into some cozy leg warmers and a hat. Turned out to be just in time for some seriously cold weather!

I’ve also been debating on what to do with this dress I bought in a grab bag from a vintage store…so far I’ve torn the sleeves out. I guess we’ll see what inspires me 🙂
