Classic Kids Easter Books Round Up.

You know I love anything classic and traditional and while I'm doing some last minute planning for the kids Easter basket this year, I'm getting all nostalgic about these classic Easter books for kids.

My kiddos love reading, especially at night so including a book or two in their basket is always a must. I thought I'd share this simple round up and hope you'll work in some classics this year too.

Introducing ... heirloomed Magazine.

I'm so excited to share this project that has been brewing over here for quite some time. The launch of heirloomed Magazine was a long time coming as I've continued to search for better ways to storytell. 

You know our mission is rooted in "keeping heirlooms around for another generation" and that's just what we aim to do through these theme based issues. Given the time of year, and of course all the traditions and recipes that are part of the holiday, we started with an Easter issue.

Southern Kitchen Bucket List : Tomato Pie.

I made so much traction last year on my Southern Kitchen Bucket List project. Looking back at the list, it's so inspiring to see how many recipes I actually tackled in just a years time.

Lessons were learned and a whole lot of trial and error went into perfecting each recipe. Some I had made before a dozen times and others were a first for me, with a mix of dishes I grew up eating to ones that were certainly not part of my normal rotation.

Today I'm continuing the quest to try more classics in my Southern kitchen and I'm sharing this delicious recipe for Tomato Pie.

My friend Stephanie got me hooked on this classic savory pie and she makes a killer version with lots of onions and smoked gouda that is just to die for. Anything that has homemade pie crust is a win in my book and I actually am equally torn between a sweet and a savory pie. 

The best thing about this recipe is that you can kind of mix in whatever herbs or cheeses you want to to play with the flavor profiles here, much like you would any Italian dish. This recipe is almost quiche-like with it's base of layered mozzarella and egg mixture so it's got a great heartiness to it for comfort food season.

I teamed up with my friends at Red Gold Tomatoes for this one and used a traditional take on the recipe here. Their whole peeled tomatoes were named #1 by Epicurious and they are especially perfect this time of year for bringing in the flavors of Summer.

Hope you'll pop over and give it a try, and if you're giving my Southern Kitchen Bucket List a try I'd love to know how it's coming for you.

A Look at Modern Farmhouse Lighting.

I must admit having your own signature style and sticking to it certainly doesn't come without some setbacks.

Over the years, my design aesthetic has changed and grown with me - from a little bit shabby chic to overly rustic but always with a common thread of vintage and the simplicity of farmhouse. Much like my style, my design doesn't chase the trends and the song "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool" pretty much sums up my vibe.

With "modern farmhouse" being all the design-rage in 2018, I thought I'd share a round up of a few of my favorite light fixtures.  I'm on the hunt for a new fixture for Wyatt's room and these caught my eye in the search.

Click on the fixture above for the source or to shop the light.

Love to know if you have a favorite, or any other fixtures you're loving out there right now. I need one in a bedroom that give off a lot of light.

Back of the Bag Recipes.

Back before the days of Pinterest, I used to keep a great big notebook filled to the brim of recipes, design ideas I loved, wedding details and even baby names all archived for me to one day pull from. I'd rip them out of magazines and carefully paste them in one by one. I still have that binder today.

My Grandma's version of this was similar, only she collected the recipes from advertisements, newspaper clippings and recipes her neighbors + friends would share with her from time to time.

As I sift through some of our "old family favorites" it always strikes me how some of the recipes we grew up with from long ago are actually just go-old "back of the bag" classics from some of the brands we love.

Chocolate Chip Cookies are made straight from the Nestle bag, and the Hershey's Chocolate Frosting recipe is the best around. 

These are the tried and true ones that we go back to year after year, but in days past when folks didn't have the Internet to Google any recipe at a moments notice, they had to rely on what they had on hand. Scouring their pantry and thankful for those smart brand marketers that new by including recipe cards and recipes printed on the sacks they would garner some pretty happy housewives who would become long-time fans of their product.

The brand marketer in me loves this notion.

Just before I went away to college my Grandmother gifted me with an amazing binder, broken into sections with pasted in recipes she had been collecting for me for years. She pasted my homecoming picture into it at the beginning and noted that these basic recipes would get me through while I was still learning to cook on my own.

I love this treasure and it still sits in my pantry next to my "professional" cookbook collection that I've amassed over the years. It's a wonderful reminder of the foundations she laid and while I don't pull it out too often to cook from any more, I do still grab that sack of chocolate chips off the shelf anytime I'm making Chocolate Chip Cookies for the kiddos.
