Apple cinnamon cake is on the table, which means it’s the weekend 🙌
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Dreaming of some summer days
If I could just rewind time and smell that newborn smell again, stare at him as he sleeps, memorize the delicate features and the way he curled his hands up, & found more joy and gratitude in holding the most precious thing life can give you. But here we are. It’s not the newborn stage. But it’s the NOW, and that’s my favorite stage.
What do Taylor Swift and @nigellalawson
have in common? They both made me, a person who has no business singing or dancing, shuffle around my kitchen in a most cringe-worthy manner, singing “ooh, look what you made me do” 💃🏻🕺🏻
Can’t help it. You know when you make something so delicious and you taste it and the spirit just moves you? This happened to me, thanks to this lamb shank with pomegranate and dates from AT MY TABLE. I used half the amount of lamb shanks (couldn’t fit any more in my pot), but kept the same amount of sauce so it turned into more of a stew, which is fine by me.
This recipe was made to be cooked in a middle eastern kitchen for sure! I had every single ingredient ready to go, including our yummy Omani dates which I’ve never used in a savory dish before, and I can’t believe I’ve wasted all these years of my life!
It’s still enough to last us for the next few days - and the best part is the flavors are gonna get better during that time. Gonna have this over turmeric rice with a side of spiced yogurt tonight.
You stop me in my steps with how amazing you are my sweet boy 💚🖤
| After weeks of exploration, we finalize our new favorite recipe - Goldfish Tofu Dumplings (asian-style) It’s a pure vegan recipe that being inspired when my lovely friend @brittaandbear
who asked me to share with her vegan dumpling. It will be share at @leplaincanvas
in next following weeks! Stay tune!
Getting ready for a *very* busy weekend. But it will be a satisfying one... and a beauty.
Sicilians love to fry their food, and this is crispelle, fried rice covered in honey 🍯
You can find crispelle everywhere, however Casa delle Crispelle is one of the originals, and they make it fresh throughout the night.
I seriously loved watching that man cut and slide the dough (by hand) into the hot oil! He fried it twice and served them hot at 10€/kilo... definitely a treat to try in Catania 🍯 #foodoverfrills #lmlitaly

On this #foodiefriday
we asked ambassador of the week @annefrogie
what her favorite recipe is. Anne shared with us her favorite granola bar recipe from the cookbook @ohsheglows
Recipe for Pressent Glo Bars: 1/2 C. Pecans, chopped (toast them!) 1 1/2 C Rolled Oats (toast them too!) 1 1/4 C Rice Crisp Cereal 1/4 Pepita Seeds (I actually use the SB roasted seeds! Cocoa or Pink Himalayan Sea Salt) 1/4 Dried Cranberries (to make them fancy use dried cherries :) 1 t cinnamon 1/4 t pink himalayan sea salt (I put big chunks in!) 1/2 C Honey (agave, maple syrup, whatever you like!) 1/4 C Almond Butter (or Peanut) 1 t vanilla extract Combine all dry ingredients in bowl. Heat and stir honey and almond butter until it bubbles. Take off heat. Add vanilla extract. Combine with dry ingredients. Pack mixture hard into 8" X 8" pan! I love toasted coconut so I add that too (at the end of mixing so it stands out!). Like all of us that create bars, feel free to add ingredients when you have a feeling for the recipe. I never follow a recipe to the "T"! Also putting parchment paper inside of pan can help you lift the brick of bars out after they've cooled to cut them! ⠀

How To Make Food Taste Great.
Anyone can make food taste great - yes, even you 😉 I truly believe that. If you start with a few foundations and you’re willing to get creative that’s where the magic comes in.
There’s three things that are important to cooking good food at home:
Quality ingredients - comes down to two simple words: real food. You know the stuff that comes from the ground or from a farm. This usually means stuff without a label. It means things that you can pronounce. Except quinoa. That’s always a tough one for anyone ;)
Get comfortable with the ingredients - here’s where you’ve got to be willing to get outside your comfort zone and play with your food. Learning how to cook ingredients properly can make a world of difference. It’s as simple as taking the time to get used to different types of cooking - what’s best for each ingredient, also chopping sizes, timing and flavour combinations.
Understanding the moment - you can create food for any occasion from a quick weeknight dinner, or breakfast on the go, to Saturday night with friends or slow Sundays - there’s always time, it just takes a little planning. When you understand the moment you can align your food to fit your life - without sacrificing eating quality food.
And here’s a bold statement - you don’t even need a recipe. If the idea of that scares you if you’re new to cooking, think about learning basic cooking skills and instead using recipes more like guidelines. The more you get comfortable with simple techniques or flavour combinations, the more you can experiment to make it your own.
This takes practice. It takes time. It takes a willingness to experiment and fail. Failure is how we learn. And if we’re not learning we’re not growing so why not bring this into the kitchen? Give yourself permission to just go for it and watch what that does for your kitchen confidence.
What’s one thing you’d love to learn to cook better?

If you need us this weekend, we’ll be setting our tables with the Tropical Collection to chase away the dreary January weather 🌥
The only way to make this meal feel more at home would be to eat it in the forest, sitting between the roots of a tree, mist caught in the moss at our feet. Make your reservation for our Truffle Dinner so you can join us for this special night!
Monday January 21st at 6:30pm.
Homemade burrito bowls for dinner the other night. I was not prepared for how delicious this chipotle cashew cream would be. 🤤🤤🤤 I was trying to recreate and veganize a chipotle cream I tasted in the Yucatán. With tried and true cashew sour cream as the base, this came together pretty quickly. Spicy, flavorful and creamy. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
The burrito bowls were layered like this (in my bowl anyway): Mexican rice, pinto beans, lettuce, cilantro, bell pepper, tomato, corn, avocado and a generous drizzle of the aforementioned chipotle cashew cream. Top with some tortilla strips baked in the oven til crispy, if you wanna be fancy. 😎
Happy Saturday beautiful Tribe 🔆

A taste of winter //
Stellenbosch is known for scorching summers, but surprisingly it’s so cold today! I just wanted to head to @schoon.eating
and put all of the chocolate things in my mouth. ☃️
Just OVER the moon for anemones as of late. They seem to just be getting more and more insane ... or as @mattymuskrat
says “what-in-the-anemone-peony-gerber-protea-orgy ⁉️🤯😍” hahahahaha! Anyway, happy FriYAY everyone - anyone else out there SO pumped about the snow this weekend? I can’t. wait.
Meet the new mascot “Opal” the peacock. She is an opal white eyed peacock. Did you know that A female peacock has special sensors in her crest that allow her to feel the vibrations of mate who may be located far away. The feathers are "tuned to vibrate at the exact same frequencies at which a displaying peacock rattles his tail." Whenever a male peacock fans his tail, he shakes it at a rate of 26 times a second, creating a pressure-wave that literally rattles the female's head for attention. Crazy.
Such a peaceful photo from @rvansnick
! I love seeing the candles in their new homes you guys. I live for this, thanks so much for always sharing your special spaces with us! 😢 #feelingsappy #shopfoxhound

Друзья совсем скоро день святого Валентина, а это значит пора подумать о подарках! 😍😍😍❤❤❤Любите и будьте любимы!
Cute story: My husband and I started dating back in 2011... I introduced him to boba tea ( we fell in love on many boba dates) and finally he proposed to me with a ring 💍and my favorite boba drink! It was the most romantic and perfect proposal! 🥰
Recently, I came across @bubbleandco88
and I fell I love with their real milk boba tea and eco-conscious business as a whole! Their message speaks to sharing joy with others and enjoying life’s simple pleasures without the guilt! Their teas consist of loose leaf organic tea blends and you’ll instantly enjoy the sweet aromas of French pastries made from all natural ingredients. The whole place was so dainty and I instantly felt a sense of belonging & nostalgia! Thank you for having us @bubbleandco88
and making treats that help spread Love!
Do you like boba tea????? 💋💋#guiltfreefood #realboba
Keep pushing! It’s almost the weekend! Check those details off the to do list so you can fully break and recharge! - Me to me as much as me to you. 😂 Get that to do to done and then come visit us at @slopeswell
for cider + polenta!
Looking into the weekend like, how you doinnnnn 🥳
What do you do when you meet a “celebrity”? I usually try not to “bother them”. Truly it probably comes out of a feeling of not being worthy to interrupt their day? They are bombarded all the time… so just leave them alone… .
Andrew takes the opposite approach. He goes right on in for the meet & greet. 🤣 Heck, he’s even tagged people on social media in the same room so they would look up and see who the stranger is talking about them…..thus creating the perfect opportunity to say hello. (While Joy is sitting there mortified, mind you.)
I’ve always tried to hide a little when around influential people. .
I’ll never forget the first time I met ShaunT. I was so nervous that I was shaking. 🤣 I honestly think I had quiver lips. So silly because he is the nicest person who makes you feel like an instant friend.
This past weekend I was overseeing the VIP photo with him and witnessed so many nervous step into the photo booth and it was fascinating the range of emotion going on. Some were fighting back tears…others couldn’t wait to tell their story…some nervously took the photo and left…. Some just straight up let the tears flow. .
And then when all was said and done, the group picture assembled and one of my friends encouraged me to get in the shot….I’m pretty sure she saw me just standing there like a freaked out middle school kid — hesitating and debating whether I “belonged” in the shot. 🤣 .
So crazy. Of course I belong. We all do. This year is the year of break through for us… and one of the breakthroughs I’m having right now is that I’m not bothering anyone to say hello or take a photo or share a story. ..
Every interaction is a chance for our stories to equally and powerfully collide and create a new level of impact together.
Isn’t that crazy powerful? People are placed into our LIFE for a reason. No more holding back….for any of us. Our stories SHOULD collide and create something beautiful and new.
I confess I’ve been easing back into making. The days are cold and grey here, and it feels good to start the year gently. Having said that, I’m aware that the shop needs a wave of new pieces to fill, and I need to refresh it after the December buying blitz. So, I’m getting my hands dirty again but am taking time to enjoy the process (have a look at my stories for a sneak peek). These little jewellery dishes remind me of the rain outside that might just turn to snow tonight. ☔️
The smile of a bride to be at the @bloodsweatandbutter
tasting with @sosmittenevents
for Ruth @hautepriestess
and Scott @scottbox
The vegan chocolate cake with espresso cream layers and a vegan chocolate ganache frost topped with Maldon Flaked Salt was the sweet final course of the tasting . It’s a small intimate June wedding for the families of this perfectly matched couple in their very own backyard and we couldn’t be more excited to have the privilege of providing the food to help celebrate the union of these great people . Congratulations you two!. So happy for both of you. #weddingtasting #weddingfood #veganwedding #foodielife #foodiewedding
