TOP FIVE RECIPES I'M LOVING:
This Purple Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Soup (I just can't get enough of the sweet potatoes, apparently) by Rebel Recipes. Purple sweet potatoes pack even more antioxidant power than their orange counterparts, which means they're basically a superfood!
A gorgeous bowl of celery root soup by Alison Wu (aka Wu Haus), tinted pink by beets and topped with greens, watermelon radish and a drizzle of oil...as nourishing as a salad and as lovely as an abstract painting! TOTALLY inspiring me to up my soup game this spring.
This incredible smoothie bowl by Lee From America, featuring cinnamon roasted butternut squash, almond butter, spices, hazelnuts, blueberries, basil flowers and about a bazillion other healthy and amazing-sounding things, all packed into one beautiful bowl!
This 1-Pot Vegan (& GF) Minestrone from Minimalist Baker, which sounds simply delicious and is probably the perfect thing to eat this weekend if you're in a climate that is still blanketed in snow. DO IT.
And finally, this recipe for Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Parsnips with Smokey Black Beans, Feta, and Green Pea Pesto from Cashew Kitchen (her gorgeous blog is in Swedish, but you can run it through Google Translate!), which sounds like sweet & salty perfection on a plate.
TOP FIVE FRIDAY JAMS:
Childish Gambino - Me and Your Mama...SO GOOD. Just so freaking good.
Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place....mellow warm-weather jam, makes me wish I was walking in slow motion on a beach.
Lord Huron - The Night We Met...otherworldly and beautiful. Damn.
David Bowie - Oh! You Pretty Things...An underrated gem from 'Hunky Dory.' The chorus is 100% what I sing to Henry while trying to get him back to sleep at 3 am (oh, you pretty thing, don't you know you're driving your Mama and Papa insane...)
TV on the Radio - Staring at the Sun...pure awesomeness with a side of guitar fuzz. Just the jam your Friday afternoon needed.
TOP FIVE FINDS THIS WEEK:
Mini-Wooly from BlaBla Kids, the sweetest little lamb!
A classic Wooden Camera Toy for your budding photographer.
Classic ABC Blocks from Uncle Goose...we have these and Henry absolutely loves them, they're so intricate & pretty!
This fun Mio Wooden Food Truck for your tiny chef.
And finally, this Clyde Midi 2 Race Car, which I am absolutely obsessed with--it would look as good displayed on a shelf in your living room as it would on the playroom floor!
