julia child's salade ni?oise

In the little bit of free time I have on Sunday afternoons, I’ve been cooking. Nothing too fancy, just preparing a few simple meals that I can eat throughout my busy week. Yesterday, however, I was overcome with an intense craving for Salade Niçoise and decided that I needed to make one this upcoming Sunday. Salads typically do not hold well enough to last for the week, but that is OK — I am happy to eat it all in one day. 

For the novelty of it, I’ll use Julia Child’s recipe in The Way to Cook (which she named one of her 100 favorite recipes of all time). Lucky for me, an old episode of The French Chef in which she prepares it is available for viewing on YouTube. In this particular episode, she carves out some time to visit a beautiful farmer’s market in Nice (if you love capers like I do, go to 24:00 — you’ll freak out!). Le marché est très charmant, and her bellowing voice speaking french makes me smile. I could honestly watch this for hours.

Pray my salad turns out well. You really can't mess a salad up that much anyway, right? (Famous last words :).

Macau trực tuyến Baccarathome again, home again, jiggity-jig

I’ve been considering a move back to Kansas City for quite some time, and last Friday I finally pulled the trigger. It’s un peu bittersweet as Los Angeles is wonderful! I’m sure I’ll visit again soon. In the meantime, I’m looking forward to all of the little things that make Kansas City so charming: the Nelson-Atkins museum, the stately homes that line Ward Parkway, Loose Park’s rose garden in bloom, my mom’s amazing cooking, (free) parking everywhere, zero traffic... 

My little brother kindly agreed to fly to Los Angeles to accompany me on the long drive home. I sure hope he likes Julia Child and the Duchess of Devonshire as we'll be listening to their memoirs in the car (I'm calling it our 24-hour history lesson). Can't wait :)

chez caroline

I spent yesterday afternoon at my friend Caroline’s adorable bungalow in Silver Lake. While sipping tea + flipping through the pages of Domino Quick Fixes (which was discovered at Whole Foods, of all places), we became inspired to do a photo shoot of our own! Caroline is a talented actress with amazing style, as clearly demonstrated in the above photos. Her Los Angeles bungalow is beyond darling, don’t you think? She and I are kindred spirits indeed :)

happy valentine's day!



When I was little, my mom would send Valentine’s Day cards to friends and family instead of Christmas cards. I laughed out loud when I read that Julia Child did the same. In My Life in France, Child said,“Valentine cards had become a tradition of ours, born of the fact that we could never get ourselves organized in time to send out Christmas cards.” With four young children, I think my mom was very much in the same boat! This card was taken in 1998 - I was ten, my brother Jimmy was eight, Sean was six, and Danielle was four. Aren’t those sweatshirts cute (for 1998, that is)? My mom cut the hearts and letters out of felt and glued them on. So sweet :) 


PS - the watercolor floral/heart border was painted by yours truly.
I was quite the artist...
