What I’m eating, loving, inspired by, and swooning over this week—————————————————
01. Eating //
I was SO excited to see Gigi’s, a beloved neighborhood Italian spot in Atlanta, on Eater’s list of Best New Restaurants in America! Gigi’s has quickly become a go-to spot for incredibly unique Italian food, cozy vibes, and amazing tiramisu. I was there last weekend — the new Winter menu items do not disappoint!
02. Loving //
To me, Fall and Winter are prime baking seasons. Lately, I’ve been relying on Claire Saffitz, the Dessert Person queen, for inspiration and recipes that never disappoint. For my birthday, I made the Carrot Cake in the book, and for a family Christmas this past weekend, I made the Buttermilk Chocolate Cake. Both were some of the best cakes I’ve ever made! Definitely grab a copy of this book if you’re looking to up your dessert game! It’s a game changer for sure.
03. Inspired By //
Light + Dwell’s thanksgiving table stopped me in my Instagram-scrolling tracks. I love the casual, yet elegant feel of it, use of foraged branches, and that little brown scalloped edge dish is so fun and unique!
04. Swooning Over //
Eyeswoon’s red wine poached pear crostata is the crostata recipe you didn’t know you needed! It’s gorgeous red color is the epitome of Holiday festive-ness. I’m making this to bring to a neighborhood Christmas party this weekend!
