Kale Salsa with a Green Juice Cocktail

Salsa and Green Cocktail_Twine And Braids

Guys, get your grocery lists ready.  I am bringing you two easy recipes just in time for the weekend – a kale salsa made in the blender and a refreshing green juice cocktail.  Now those that know me, know I am not a big fan of most dips or condiments.  Seriously, I eat my salads […]

Chicken Pot Pie

Have you ever come across a recipe on pinterest or instagram and you thought it looked too good to be true?  That if you attempted to make it yourself it would never look as professional?  Everyday?  Yep, me too.  I had that same feeling when I spotted this chicken pot pie recipe from Julie of Lovely Little Kitchen, […]

DIY Flour Sack Towels

DIY Tea Towels_Twine And Braids

My dishtowel drawer was overflowing, so naturally I needed to make more.  Our current kitchen is a good size for an apartment, but it mainly consists of cabinets and appliances – not much room to decorate.  That’s when I turn to my dishtowel drawer.  Kitchen linens are an easy way to add a pop of […]

Edible Spring Centerpiece

Edible Centerpiece_Twine And Braids

I’ve always had a soft spot for edible arrangements, I mean come on, they’re delicious.  But they aren’t always the most attractive choice for a centerpiece, plus they can get a bit pricey.  Simple solution?  Make one yourself! A few years ago my mom and I had attempted our first DIY edible arrangement and we […]

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars_Twine And Braids

My Grandma’s birthday falls on the day before St. Patrick’s Day.  So naturally, when we celebrate the theme is always shamrocks, corned beef and Irish soda bread.  Typically my offering of dessert follows suit with something sweet that requires green food dye, inevitably staining your teeth.  This time around I decided to switch things up […]

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs_Twine And Braids

The weather has been absolutely perfect over here on the East Coast this week and it has me feeling everything spring – open windows, soft florals, outdoor dining and of course, Easter.  Now, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; I’m a sucker for any and every holiday tradition. (Need proof? See here, here, and here).  Dying […]

Supermarket Flowers

Supermarket Flowers_Twine And Braids

I LOVE having fresh flowers in my apartment.  It’s something Erick will never understand with his rationale of – “what’s the point? they’re just going to die.”  But, they make me happy.  Whether it’s a full vase of blooms or a small teacup with a single flower they’re guaranteed to brighten any room.  My favorite […]

Valentine’s Day Cookies

Valentines Day Cookies_Twine And Braids

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and I thought it was the perfect excuse to bake up something sweet.  I’ve always found sugar cookies with royal icing to be almost too pretty to eat and have been dying to try out this icing technique for myself.  As a first timer, my cookies didn’t come out quite as […]

5 Products To Feel Summery All Year Long

Summer Products_Twine And Braids

It’s officially winter on the east coast.  Like the – we’ve had our first snow fall, temperatures in the teens, windy and blustery kind of winter.  Now, I’m not complaining, I love living in an area that has seasons.  When winter comes it means I get to layer up with cozy sweaters and wrap myself […]

DIY Candle Holders: Two Ways

Growing up my mom had window clings for every occasion; March had shamrocks, with April came the Easter eggs, and in February, of course, she had hearts.  Our home had four pane windows and french doors in the living room so we would place a simple red heart in the center of each pane.  These were always […]
