Hello my friends!
I’m not sure I could tell you about my week. It was mostly blurry though I’ve heard talk of eclipses and Mercury retrograde and what I do know is that it has felt like my feet aren’t quite on the ground but I’m moving on through.
There’s a light dusting of flour still on my counter from making these doughnuts as a treat for my Yoga Teacher Training friends. The recipe is a cinnamon-sugar dusted version of a recipe found in my brunch book Over Easy if you’re looking for a good time. I’ve promised myself that I’ll clean the mess up in the morning.
In the mail this week I received an advanced copy of Julia Turshon’s forthcoming book, Now and Again. She’s a deeply thoughtful cook and writer and she’ll be coming to The Bakehouse this Fall for an event. It’s all good news.
The offering this week is on the lighthearted side though the very serious things in the world are unrelenting. This is just where I landed. I hope it resonates. More than anything, I hope you enjoy your Sunday.
Here we are:
• This is super illuminating: My Life As A Psychopath. (The Cut)
• This is spot on and I hadn’t put enough consideration towards this issue until now: The Ethical Dilemma of Highbrow True Crime. (Vulture)
• Words from BEYONCE in Vogue. She’s gorgeous inside. I mean… really.
• You Are Not Original Or Creative On Instagram… aaaahem, but have you seen @drakeoncake. (Quartz)
• Listen, we’ve got the mess that is Bachelor In Paradise on our televisions and this news that Barbara Streisand cloned her dogs. It’s just a very strange world we live in. Inside the Very Big, Very Controversial Business of Dog Cloning. (Vanity Fair)
• We know by now that Helen Rosner is right about things: It’s Time To Admit That Iceberg Is A Superior Lettuce (The New Yorker)
• This book is completely expanding the way I think about hosting workshops, retreats and even dinner parties. The Art of Gathering. (Amazon)
• Erin McDowell made Sheet Pan Shortcake and now is as good as it gets! Wouldn’t you say? (Food52)
• I made New Orleans Red Beans and Rice for a workshop at The Bakehouse this week and I’d just like to say, don’t sleep on that recipe – it’s really delicious. (Joy the Baker)
• If you’ll indulge me, do you have a favorite Glossier product? Is it this Boy Brow? (Glossier)
• Kristin made the coolest cocktail skewers out of modeling clay and I am very into it! (Dine x Design)
• Things I read now: What is the meaning of OM (Gaia).
• Welp, I could get lost in Bear Cam for a good long while.
I hope it’s a wonderful day!
My love to you.

I’m so excited for the new Now and Again cookbook. I love Small Victories!
And I love @drakeoncake!
I’m gonna be super controversial here: I hate boy brow. It’s so unnaturally dark (on my dark brown/ black eyebrows) and gloopy and wet and fake looking. And I have their matte lip gloss that dries my lips out so bad they literally get chapped within an hour of wearing it. Not a fan.
Love boy brow and looveeeeeeeee the two masks, used one right after the other. Take or leave the mascara though. :D
My coworkers and I are obsessed with the bear cams from Explore! I highly recommend this one, too: https://explore.org/livecams/panda-bears/china-panda-cam-2.
The Bear Cam is so cool! Thanks for sharing
Boy Brow X 100. I’ve used a lot of brow gels and this one so lives up to the hype.
My other Glossier fave is the Generation G sheer matte lip color. I use it on both lips and cheeks and I find it more forgiving/blendable and easy to use (for me and my weird skin) than Cloud Paint.
If you like Bachelor in Paradise, you’ll love Love Island (if you haven’t heard of it already).
