sunday bites

Today's recipe is delightful open-face breakfast sandwich with hash brown patties and runny eggs.

Ingredients:
Fresh sourdough bread
2 eggs
2 medium sized potatoes 
Frisée salad (couple of leaves)
1tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Olive oil
Optional - Vegan creamy garlic sauce or spread

Directions:
Grate your potatoes using a cheese grater. Heat up a skillet with olive oil over medium high heat. Using a spoon drop the grated potatoes into the skillet and spread into small patties. Let brown on each side for 4-6 minutes or until golden and crispy.  Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Gently fry your eggs so the whites are set but the yolks are still runny. Dress your frisée with a little bit of lemon juice and olive oil. To assemble, start with sliced sourdough, add bits of the dressed frisée, layer the hash brown patties and top with and egg.
Serve with vegan garlic spread or whatever you like (Sam likes his with hot sauce). 
Enjoy.

Happy Sunday and don't forget to checkout more easy recipes.

pumpkin friday

Sam and I love Halloween. Every year we decorate our house with campy decorations and pass out candy on our front porch. This year we decided to make some pretty DIY pumpkins for the inside of our house. They’re more Pinterest and less campy than we usually do.

We invited over some friends and made a whole day of pumpkin crafts. 
My personal favorite is the pink drip candle which was created by melting crayons over a spray painted pumpkin. The other big favorite was the studded pumpkin made by my friend Emma. All the pumpkins were primed with white spray paint and all the stems were glittered (glue + glitter = magic).  
I made the glitter pumpkin by using spray adhesive and we used Sam’s acrylic paint to create the custom design of the blue pumpkin. 

It was a pretty epic day despite the fact that Sam  someone was an ex-art-student making fun of my clear lack of artistic ability and patience.

shimmer

I teamed up with Mary Kay to create a look inspired by one of the Project Runway finale makeup looks created by artist Luis Casco Green. I used the Beach Blonde Cream Eye Color and True Dimensions Lipstick in  Sassy Fuchsia to recreate the beachy vibe of the models. I love the shimmery shadow paired with the pretty pink lip. It feels young, fresh and effortless.
