A rundown of what we're doing,
watching, reading, coveting.
Here's what's got our attention this week.
  • I recently discovered Magic Coffee, thanks to Merrill Stubbs, co-founder of Food52, and it’s a game changer. I don’t usually sweeten my coffee, and I’m not mad about it. It’s basically like the morning version of coffee ice cream, with rocket fuel. 

  • I don’t know about you, but I feel immense satisfaction from tiny home victories–always in life, but especially now when a highly functioning space means more mental ease for all of us. (But mostly me!) Little adjustments here + there can make such a big impact. Example #1: This big durable tub is great for so many things. We use it as a shoe catch-all. Easy for all ages to just dump them in + no one trips on shoes when they come in the door. It’s made from 100% food grade plastic and is flexible but super strong. We use their small “strainer” version to hold odds + ends by the door like sunscreen, lip balm, doggie bags, hair ties, etc. Example #2: The Command Hook. Dog leash, hats, dust pan, hand towels, masks–anything that needs a place fast (before your head explodes seeing it on the floor one more time) + you’re hesitating throwing a nail into the wall. The ease + impact of the Command hook cannot be overstated.

  • While we’re all gaining more confidence in the kitchen, why not try a recipe you’ve enjoyed or read about at one of NYC’s best restaurants? And raise money doing it. Serving New York is an e-book with more than 45 easy, pantry-friendly recipes from NYC’s best restaurants, including Olmsted, Momofuku, King, Charlie Bird, Llama Inn, the NoMad, and more. It’s a $20 download. 100% of the proceeds go to ROAR (Relief Opportunities for All Restaurants) x Robin Hood’s restaurant relief fund, providing cash assistance to NYC restaurant workers. I just purchased this and am excited to try making the Lemon Ricotta Cake from our favorite local restaurant Fausto.  

  • I only recently learned that Cheryl Strayed has a podcast (Tiny Beautiful Things is one of my favorite books from years ago). Recently on Dear Sugar, Cheryl spoke with Judy Blume in a conversation titled This Terrible Thing is Happening. It was such a childhood throwback to even think about Judy, and it was comforting to listen to her experience and advice. The half hour feels like a warm hug. 

  • Our latest adventure in crafting was these mobiles by Misha and Puff. My mom made them with India and they only require super simple supplies. They’re still hanging off the light in our dining room ! 

  • I’ve been daydreaming about table settings since we’re all able to sit down to dinner these days. Eyeing these, this and these.
