soup’s on | farro, kale and cannellini soup

  When the weather becomes chilly, I start craving soup. I have repertoire of favorite soup recipes from our restaurant but lately, I’ve been experimenting. I made this last week and I’m definitely adding it to my favorites. It’s hearty, delicious and the perfect lunch or light dinner.  Enjoy! Farro, Kale and Cannellini Soup ingredients 1/2 cup farro, picked over and rinsed (I used 1/2 a cup of buckwheat groats) 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 large onion, diced 1 medium carrot, diced 2 stalks celery, diced 2 strips of bacon,...

things to do | thread dc

Remember when I went to Thread last year at Union Market and I waxed on and on and on?  Guess what?! The next Thread event starts tomorrow and I can’t wait!  This year it’s changed locations to a warehouse next to the Angelika pop up.  There’s 14 retailers (Billy Reid!  what?!) and I’m bound to buy a few holiday gifts.  Don’t miss...

happy veteran’s day and the veteran’s day concert on the Mall

Happy Veteran’s Day! I’d like to give a big thank you to all the veteran’s (friends, family and clients) that serve/served the country.  It’s a holiday in DC and the city is expecting around 800,000 people to attend the Veteran’s Day concert on the Mall.  Whoa, right?  The line up is impressive and it’s going to be fantastic! If you’re going to the concert, here’s a link to everything you need to know about attending....

novel novels | november reads

On Monday I found a fantastic list of book recommendations and I immediately downloaded a few. A lot of the recommendations were familiar but there were a few new (to me) titles. So far, my favorites have been Tell the Wolves I’m Home  and Beautiful Ruins.    Tell the Wolves I’m Home was one of the new to me titles.  I’m always intrigued by a book that is good but somehow I’ve overlooked it.  I was immediately drawn into the story.  It’s a family drama set in the 80′s and I loved it.  I highly recommend it....

sad news for the ‘hood.  Duffy’s closed last night.

As I was manically checking twitter last night, several people posted that Duffy’s was closing last night after eight years in the neighborhood.  It was one of the first restaurants in our neck of the woods and I know many residents will miss it.  Cheers...

table top ideas | thanksgiving

Can you believe it’s November and Thanksgiving is around the corner?  I know we’re only four days into November and most people are thinking about voting (did you vote today? if you haven’t, make sure you do!).  Meanwhile, I’m already thinking of how I’m going to set the table for Thanksgiving and what sort of gifts I’ll be giving for the holidays.  I know. I’m one of those people. This year I thought it’d be fun to mix rustic and glam.  I use white plates so the rest of the table elements can...
