Recipe | The Kaleesi Burger

Oh myyy…

PornBurger

“Moon of my Stars”… “Mother of Dragons”… Call this smoldering dinosaur kale burger what you will, just don’t call it weak. Smokey morsels of crisped shiitake “bacon,” crown a regal beet gratin, smothered in Red Dragon cheese on top of a crunchy, berberre-rubbed kale patty, heirloom tomato, and slathering of sumac aioli. Dracarys! (Translation: “Fuck raw horse heart!”)

serious h/t to  J. Kenji Lopez for the mushroom bacon

Jump For Joy! – Photo by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

Every day beautiful photos such as this arrive in my inbox from JUMP FOR JOY!’s WordPress blog.  Each photo guaranteed to make me smile and change the course of my day. And I think that is her whole point… “I hope to contribute to the shift of our collective focus from the negative to the positive.” Eyoälha Baker “captures the beauty of the human spirit in mid-air through the simple act of taking photographs of people jumping for joy.”

I feel I have found a way to reach the true joy and child-like playfulness within people by having them jump for joy in front of the camera lens. This playful, child-like joy is why I’ve launched the project — Jump for Joy!

“Surrounding yourself with images that uplift your spirit is as important for your health as nutritious food.” – Deepak Chopra in Origin Magazine

Besides the joy of finding these photographs in my inbox every day, Eyoälha also has two major projects happening:

She is raising money via Kickstarter to cover costs of creating an epic public art mural with photos of 100+ people jumping for joy around Vancouver on a 9000 sq. ft. building wall in the Down Town east side. — Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality Vancouver

And…

All pledges OVER the $5000 mark will go towards completing a book of 10000 people jumping for joy around the world!

“Create art, spread joy, feel good.” I LIKE her.

ReBlogged //Young House Love

I love these people. Or rather I love their blog, Young House Love. It’s personable and friendly while being informative and visually attractive. Plus they’re just such a darn cute couple! They recently released a book called “Young House Love” and have a line of decorative accessories (lights, hooks) available at Target. The Petersik’s also recently added Baby Number 3 to their little family in the midst of all this DIY. I say three because “Burger” the chihuahua is a part of the family too. Nope. I was wrong. I love the people behind the blog too. Sherry and John are self-described as:

Young House LoveI just think they’re fabulous folks! I started reading Young House Love at first because I adore interior decorating and anything DIY.  Seriously. Ask my Mother. Or better yet ask yours. I was “that” friend. Yes, I was the friend your Mother invited over when we were 14 to help her move the furniture around and find a new “Look” for the living room. I’ve been rearranging furniture and doing it myself (aka DIY) my entire life.  I’m here to tell you that John and Sherry make it look good and make doing it look easy. But not only that… they also show YOU how to do it too. Win/Win!

I look forward to their emails now and have learned a lot about blogging in the process via their wonderful ‘Blogging FAQs’ you see referenced in the above picture. Click on a link and visit their blog. You’ll smile… and you’ll learn something along the way too.
