I’m pretty sure March 2015 takes the prize for the most blog posts I’ve ever published in one month. We talked about my wedding (and the cake, obvs), pie, pizza (also technically pie), blogging thoughts (in my newest #commute post), waffles, and brownie tiramisu trifles for virtual baby showers. Geez! Crazy. I’m not really sure how I got all of that done in one month. In other news, Erica from Nommable made my wedding cupcakes on her spring break and wrote the sweetest blog post about it and about reaching out to other bloggers. (Btw – PLEASE leave a comment if you’re another blogger reading this. I’ve found some of my favorite new blogs because people commented on one of my posts and I went back to their site. I wanna say hi!) On Saturday I ate NOTHING. BUT. PIZZA. Expect a post about that in the next few weeks. This week I’m attempting to detox from that, and then we’re heading to Ohio for the Easter weekend where I’m hoping to catch up on some cookbook reading and do some chilling out. I’m so excited for April! March decided it was still winter so I’m hoping April won’t be so stubborn. Here’s what I’ve been loving in March:
From cookbooks! – Robert and I are trying out a new thing where we will cook exclusively from one cookbook for a week (for dinners). I have sooooo many cookbooks so it should be a good way to use them up while also broadening our horizons and trying new recipes. Last week we cooked from Inspiralized – LOVED it – and in the next week or two we will be cooking from Bowl + Spoon. SO EXCITED.
Hart of Dixie – This show has been one of my guilty pleasures for a few years since it started, but when I started dating Robert I missed out on the tail end of season one and all of season two (hehehe). I decided to get caught up on Netflix and I realized how much I frickin’ love this show. I think the best way to describe it is that it’s basically Gilmore Girls in the south but with better clothing and hotter people. It’s not about a mother-daughter relationship like GG, but it has the same small-town vibe and zany cast of characters that give the show its charm. And – spoiler alert – it’s actually filmed on the same town square as Gilmore Girls, which is probably why it feels so comforting and familiar to me.
Burnt Toast (Food52 podcast) – I absolutely adore Food52, so I’m really excited to see this new content from them. I figured it was only a matter of time before this happened; it just seems like a natural progression for the company. There’s only a few episodes so far but I really enjoyed them and I’m looking forward to more.
The Chopped Podcast – All of you fellow food bloggers out there should be listening to this new podcast, because it’s all about the ins and outs of food blogging. I’m super excited about this one because I totally nerd out over all of that behind-the-scenes stuff. And they’ve already had interviews with some of my favorite bloggers, like Bev from Bev Cooks and Kate from Cookie and Kate.
The Wind and the Wave – This band performed on Hart of Dixie and I immediately fell in love. I listened to their Pandora station for about 24 hours before I broke down and bought both of their albums – their debut album and covers album, which has some great covers on it like “Chandelier” and “Ignition” (???). Their sound is what I would describe as a pop/folk/country/alternative rock mashup, and I’m really into it. I’ve had them on repeat during my commutes to work for the last week or so. Can’t get enough. This is one of my favorites, and it’s a pretty cool music video too.
