I'm heading out to Atlanta later this week to shoot a wedding and I love this little illustration I came across - I hope I have time to try Holy Taco as well as check out that little cemetery on the left with the cute ghost...
Traveling and getting to explore new cities is one of my favorite parts of my job. And I actually really look forward to plane rides because it's one of the only times I can sit around and watch an entire season of a new show on my laptop or read a bunch of magazines and not feel guilty... One thing I do want to do differently for this trip however, is pack up some yummy, healthy food. Plane food makes me sick, airport food is junk, but I think bringing along these golden potstickers by 101 Cookbooks might be just the ticket!

I've been cooking a lot of recipes lately from my newest cookbook, "It's All Good" by Gwyneth Paltrow & Julia Turshen. It's perfect for how I already eat which is mostly vegetarian, mostly dairy-free, but there are still a handful of healthy meat & fish recipes, which is great because my husband isn't really down with the whole vegetarian thing. I realized that I've been posting a lot of desserts up here on the blog, but this is how I really eat on a daily basis, so I thought it was high time I do a post that reflected that.
The top two photos are of their "mexican chopped salad with mexican green goddess dressing"(p. 57) which is refreshing and delicious. P.S: how great is that anthropologie placemat? It's one of my most favorite things I own.
This next photo is just some simple chopped avocado and cherry tomatoes in carrot ginger dressing from GP's "Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad with Carrot Ginger Dressing" (p. 65). I skipped the salad this time (though I've made it before and it's excellent!) and went right for the dressing - which is the only carrot ginger dressing I've ever loved aside from the one they have at Yaffa Cafe on Saint Mark's Place in the East Village. When I was 18 that's where you could find me and my friends at 3am - and this dressing takes me right back there. It makes a great dip for any raw vegetable, but my two favorite things to eat it on are tofu and avocadoes.
And pretty soon, I'll be looking like this! ... Just kidding. :(

Anyways, these are from a recent trip out to The Ace in Palm Springs to attend a welcome home celebration for our friend Mary who just spent the last 6 months volunteering at an orphanage in Uganda. You can see more photos from the event on instagram using the hashtag #maryshipsterhomecoming (Mary's Hipster Homecoming). She's starting a company called We Spread the Love and will be returning to Uganda later this year - if you go to her website you can learn more about what they're doing and how you can help and donate. You can also follow along on instagram at @wespreadthelove.
