What would a pizza be without toppings? Here are some things elsewhere on the web that I'm into lately. Some things make me laugh, some I want to cook, some I want to buy, some I want to give as gifts. Most mostly, I just thing they're cool.
Funny: The Oatmeal! Once you start clicking through his comics you can't stop.
Educational: Book Larder. Opening in Seattle next week, Book Larder is a book store of only cookbooks! They will feature talks by cookbook authors and cooking classes.
Bling: Shlomit Ofir Jewelry Designs. Ok I LOVE this stuff! I have a silver necklace very similar to this one. She's a designer living in Tel Aviv and I just ooh and ahh over this jewelry all the time.
Totally Cheesy! Homemade Ricotta on Homemade Crackers drizzled with Honey and Cracked Pepper from I Made That. Here's a recipe I CANNOT get out of my head. I just must try it or else! Brandi from LookIMadeThat.com, Pastry Chef at Seattle's Delancey, and co-owner of The Pantry (busy lady!) featured this simple and lovely appetizer on her blog. Not only that, my friend, Emily, and I attended her cheese making class and got to sample. Wow. Must make.
Visual: Google SketchUp is WAY Awesome! As you may or may not know C is currently taking middle school bleacher boards and refinishing them to make a new bed frame. Pretty amazing! On a tip from YoungHouseLove.com I downloaded the app for free to try. It is so fun! C was describing how the frame will look and I said, "How about we make a sketch?" He completely poo poo'd making a sketch. After about 5 minutes working with SketchUp he was sold! Here's our first attempt. Nice. Simple. I love it! Plus, we can add a headboard later if we feel like it. Who knows?
