Welcome to this little corner of Loveleaf Co. where every last Thursday of the month, I post ten of my favorite finds, meals, memories, and everything in between from the past 30 days. ✌🏼
The Kitchen Reset Program is back! I’m sharing everything I know about kitchen organization and simplified meal prep, packed into one step-by-step plan that will help you transform your space and master the art of the 20-minute meal. Think Marie Kondo meets kitchen ninja.
Josh and I lived in South Boston for 5+ years (before moving to Portland, Maine and then New York City, where we live now). Recently, we decided to sell our condo there, so this month we spent a few weeks in Boston getting it ready put on the market. The photo above is the beach just a few blocks from our condo (… which SOLD a few days ago 👏🏼 😭).
One of the best parts of our Boston trip (besides the sheer change of scenery), was walking around our old neighborhood. We limited going out for obvious reasons, but we were able to eat outside at one of our old go-to dinner spots, Loco. In normal times, we would have gone to our favorites like Toro, Drink, Sarma – so many good restaurants in Boston – but saving those for another, safer, time.
It’s pumpkin season! If you’re anything like me you’re ready for fall. But… it’s not that cold yet. So, to ease into the season, I have three words for you: pumpkin pie smoothie. It’s healthy, satisfying, and made with just a few simple ingredients. Get the recipe here.
Josh and I renovated the kitchen in our Boston condo *right* before we moved to Portland, Maine a few years ago. But this month was my first opportunity to actually cook in it! Swipe through to check out these before-and-after photos to see what the kitchen looked like when we lived there (… where’s the counter? 😉
Is it weird to have a favorite grocery store? Probably. But the South End Whole Foods Market in Boston is grocery store heaven. After living in New York City for a few years, I was in my element with the amount of space and selection. And also: wine is sold in grocery stores in Massachusetts! It’s the little things these days.
The Fall Meal Plan is here! The meal plan is two weeks of perfectly coordinated, healthy, EASY dinner recipes. Made with pantry staples and lots of seasonal vegetables to help save you time, money, aaaand feel good.
It uses my signature method (make a few staple ingredients on Sunday or Monday and turn them into effortless 20-min meals ALL WEEK). To be honest, it’s the only way I’ll cook anymore 😎. All 100% #realfood (and naturally gluten-free).
I was doing some recipe testing earlier this month and needed pumpkin purée but… all the stores in Boston were sold out. So I ordered a full case online 😎. Get ready for lots of (healthy) pumpkin recipes, coming your way! In the meantime, get started with these pumpkin spice energy bites and this pumpkin pie smoothie bowl.
You guys know I’m kind of obsessed with Mary’s Gone Crackers (… the everything flavor is… everything). I’m not dairy-free all the time, but I do like to take a break from dairy sometimes and I enjoy trying plant-based alternatives. This Treeline tree nut cheese is really good and pairs perfectly with these crackers (… and wine ;).
Josh and I spent the last few weeks of September visiting my parents on Long Island where it is finally getting chilly (cue the puffy jackets). Who wore it best? 😎
Happy fall! Until next month. ✌🏼
