Outtakes, October 18th: behind Autumn Makes & Does this week

by autumn on October 18, 2013


 I got these little “garlic pearls” at the farmers market last weekend, which are apparently dried parts of the garlic flower. Have you seen or used these before?

I found these two essays by Grace Bonney and Amy Azzarito at Design Sponge to be incredibly moving. They really made me think about how I literally and figuratively arrange my own life.

Cindy from Hungry Girl Por Vida gave me a sweet little shout out. Thanks, Cindy!

Kelly and I recorded a podcast after our itty bitty hiatus for her move! Subscribe to this nonsense and find out what Kelly is doing with her hand in the above screenshot.

I love Billy’s “Grocery List” posts, so I was tickled that he included my Pistachio Milk in this week’s list.

I made this Turmeric Tea from 101 Cookbooks because I have that same red hot pain between the shoulders that Heidi talks about and it’s totally working! Plus, I’m liking the taste a lot.

I swooned over some quince at the market this week. There’s so much more quince love to come here!

I’ve been cooking up something awesome with Kris of 80Twenty. If you don’t already follow her blog, now is the time!

I made a version of this butternut alfredo from the Post Punk Kitchen. I made a few substitutions based on what I had around, but it was still gluten-free vegan carb magic.

I’m now thinking I need to add turmeric to my next batch of apple tisane (today’s post). It has so many health benefits. Can’t wait for the next podcast! I may tune in now while i tackle my massively messy kitchen. Have a great weekend, Autumn!

Aimee, the tisane sounds so good. The turmeric is a touch bitter, but in a way I really like. I’m going to try to be more aware of adding it to more things in the future too.

Yessss I am feeling so much better taking that turmeric tea, too! Just generally less achy. I don’t love the lemon though – I omit it and add ginger.

Oh, I might try that. Thanks, Sarah. I don’t mind the lemon, I bet ginger would be really good!
