looks great! -Josh
Yes, we were aware of the ignorant comments made by the CEO. We obviously found them very offensive, so that’s why we were so glad to see Barilla apologize immediately and calling the comments an inaccurate representation of the company’s beliefs. We chose to move forward with Barilla knowing that they acknowledged the stupidity and are using it as an opportunity to better themselves. - Jacki

We are pretty big on the outdoors at our house. Oh, I don't necessarily mean sleeping-on-nothing-but-a-yoga-mat-in-the-middle-of-a-national-park outdoorsy; more like playing-yard-games-with-cocktails-and-a-cheese-board-nearby outdoorsy. While my husband Todd and I do really enjoy going for walks, bike rides, and all that jazz in... Continue reading

Honestly, you really don't notice it much in this recipe as there are such strong flavors from the herbs, onion and garlic. -Emma
Toggle Commented 3 hours ago on Baked Quinoa Falafel at A Beautiful Mess
Yes, I agree. Baking is much easier. Sometimes I really don't want to deep fry for dinner as it just seems to take a bit longer and takes more attention (like I can't set a timer for the oven and just wander into the living room to watch the Daily Show while it bakes). :) -Emma

Me too. I'm very afraid of losing my ring. But I also hate getting kitchen gunk in it, when I forget to take it off. Be sure to insure your ring if you haven't already. It's such a sentimental item that I can't imagine losing it but at least it won't be a financial burden if I ever did (because I got it insured). -Emma

Guys, I love falafel. To me, it's kind of food truck thing. Even though I've only had the pleasure of eating at food trucks probably a handful of times in my life. Maybe I need to make that more of... Continue reading

Hi Emilia! We were aware of the ignorant comments made by the CEO. We found them very offensive, so that’s why we were so glad to see Barilla apologize immediately and call the comments an inaccurate representation of the company’s beliefs. We chose to move forward with Barilla knowing that they immediately distanced themselves from the comment, apologized profusely, and made changes to the company's plans to directly contradict what the CEO said. Emma and Elsie support equal rights for everyone. :) - Jacki

Here are a few photos that Sarah took of us when we first got our collaborative Swedish Hasbeens in the mail back in May. We took them for a magazine that didn't end up using any, but they make me... Continue reading

Nope! I just try to like my outfits when I walk out the door in the morning. If I can get that done, nothing else matters. That's hard enough, you know? :) xx- Elsie

We are still doing them! Don't worry. This week was just extra busy and everyone was either behind on work, sick or traveling. There will probably be one next week. :) xx- Elsie

Hey Jsb, thanks! We do have foxes, but I don't think I've ever seen one in person. They are cool little creatures, that's so neat that you have them in your back yard. All I have are squirrels, rabbits and random beavers -Josh

Are you ready for more fancy grilled cheese sandwiches? Last time we made a delicious little sandwich with sourdough, almond butter, and figs. This week we are all about the tuna melts. Okay, here's my confession about tuna melts. And... Continue reading

Remember the party cove nook we posted all those days ago? On the other side of the polka dot fence is a painting I got to do a couple of months ago. Elsie told me I could paint anything I... Continue reading

There's a new restaurant that opened this past year in my hometown that I just love. It has super cute decor and serves a menu filled with locally-grown/raised menu items. One dish I keep seeing is pappardelle carbonara, which is... Continue reading
