How to Make Baked Eggs

You can also make shirred eggs to use up leftovers like spinach, shallots, and sausage crumbles for an easy brunch at home. Get the recipe on #recipe #bakedeggs #brunchrecipe

I feel like it’s silly to call this a recipe since it’s really just a bunch of things I have on hand… but after sharing my baked eggs on Instagram a few times, I realized I needed to get the steps in writing for you! If you’re looking for a quick and easy breakfast that’s easily customized based on what you have on hand… look no further than baked eggs. We always have WAY too many eggs on hand because of the chickens, so I’ve experimented with my ‘formula’ of ingredients a lot. Here’s my favorite flavor combination + some additional ones to try!

Layer Like a Pro With These Sofa Styling Tips (video)

How to Style a Sofa Like a Pro! Tips and tricks from a prop stylist including how to mix prints, how to layer textures, ideas for refreshing a sofa, and more with decorative pillows, linen throws, and faux sheepskin rugs. #stylingtips #interiordesign #sofa

Because we’ve spent so much time at home lately, I am getting really bored of our decor. Don’t get me wrong, I love pretty much everything that we’ve accumulated in the tiny bungalow over the years… but in such a small space, some stuff can feel repetitive. Ever since we started quarantining, I’ve been zhushing and shuffling things around the house to make it feel a bit fresher. While working on the sofa the other day, I thought it would be fun to set up the tripod and show you how I have been styling our sofa + share some tips for you to try it out yourself!

Recently, I conducted a poll on Instagram and tons of people asked me to share a round up that’s similar to my post about stylish humidifiers — but this time about modern air purifiers! I’ve used plants as air purifiers for a while, but with spring upon us, my allergies are terrible. We have the windows open to let in that fresh air, but woof, the pollen!! In case you’re in the same scenario, I thought it would be helpful to share which air purifier I use + round up a few more stylish and modern options for you!

Since I took last week off, April’s Things of Note post is a little bit behind. Sorry about that! But there’s so much good stuff in this post… as I was gathering some faves to share, I wasn’t expecting there to be a lot of products to share. Basically, I haven’t been shopping much in quarantine since our budget is pretty tight, but apparently I have enough to fill this post! Funny how that happens… Let’s dig into some of the products I tried and loved this month, including decor from Bloomist, my bff’s new book, and more!

My Easy Pantry Pasta Recipe

Easy Weeknight Dinner: My Pantry Pasta Recipe! Made with Mediterranean flavors and pantry staples like marinated artichokes, tomato paste, canned tomatoes, plum tomatoes, garlic, capers, kalamata olives, and more! An easy recipe for a weeknight dinner in 30 minutes or less. #dinnerecipe #pantrystaples #pastarecipe

A few weeks ago, I shared this recipe in my stories on Instagram in partnership with Fred Meyer and Kroger, but I wanted to share it here on the blog just in case you missed it! I’ve gotten lots of direct messages about it — and rightfully so! This easy recipe is basically what I call Pantry Pasta because it’s the perfect way to use whatever you have on hand and get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. I came up with it last year because we always had jars of half-used ingredients on hand… and no real plan to use them up. I started combining flavors that are tried and trusted, then it just developed from there. It’s SO easy and SO satisfying.

My Week of Doing Puzzles

Personal Essay about taking a week of from work for self-care during quarantine and coronavirus. Finding peace and meditation in doing jigsaw puzzles. #quarantine #personalessay #stayhome #selfcare #wellness

I have probably rewritten the first sentence of this post and stared at the cursor for at least 30 minutes, not really knowing how to start off. You might have noticed that I didn’t share any blog posts last week and barely posted to social media… the truth is that I just needed a break. I had hit 2020 running with so many goals of launching my classes, exploring opening an online shop, writing some really in depth blog posts, and so much more. Especially because I took off time during the holidays to regroup, rest, and relax! I was so ready for 2020, optimistic even. But with the arrival of COVID-19, it feels so much like my motivation and drive have taken a hit. In just a week, I feel like my entire life got flipped upside down and everything shifted… and along with it, went my focus.
