Guest Hunter, Lindsay Meyer-Harley

We’ve got..

Guest Hunter, Lindsay Meyer-Harley

Guest Hunter, Lindsay Meyer-Harley

Lindsay Meyer-Harley along for a week of Guest Hunting. Lindsay lives in Brooklyn, owns Children’s shop; Darling Clementine (which is absolutely adorably, by the way – lots of great local designers) and most importantly is mom to a 2.5 year old girl, Juliette.

Lindsay’s also very into design. When asked about her aesthetic, she has this to say: “I can’t pin it down, I like rustic and modern. Vintage and brand spankin’ new. Soft hues and pops of color. I like what makes me happy and some days that’s hot pink and other days cool greys.”. In addition, she’s a fan of lots of good stuff – from iced coffee to guacamole. Here’s what else made the list: “Days spent outside, watermelon in the summer and chestnuts in the winter, salty popcorn, loose boxy tanks and brightly printed pants. Hot pink nail polish, beachy waves and morning croissants.” From her must-checkout shop to what you’ve read so far, you can probably tell, she’s got style and individuality. So, READ ON. Once again, another Guest Hunter with some super cool finds!

Green Juice

After my beloved..

local organic market had to close its doors, I bit the bullet and made the investment in a juicer. I’ve been excited to use lots of fruits, but really wanted to explore juicing with vegetables. I have to admit I’ve been a little reluctant in experimenting beyond carrots and spinach. So I searched around to find recipes that I could try, and hopefully enjoy. Just yesterday, I tried this green cocktail recommended by Martha Stewart – which is a mix of pear, apple, spinach, parsley, celery, cucumber, ginger and papaya to add a little sweetness. Overall I was delighted with the taste, however I did omit the parsley, switched out papaya for mango, and probably would add a little more ginger next time. I then came across Whole Family Fare, a beautiful blog run by mom and cook, Megan-Joy.  She features many great juice combinations, and vegetarian recipes that are now on my “to try” list. Not to mention the photography is gorgeous! I’ll definitely be documenting more of my juicing endeavors soon.

Radishes

The farmer’s market..

Farmer's Market Radishes

Farmer's Market Radishes

at the Renegade Craft Fair was filled with colorful veggies, fresh fruits, local honey and yummy snacks. My personal favorite were the radishes. Their vibrant color made me just want to nibble on one right on the spot! Not to mention, radishes have folic acid, potassium, ascorbic acid and plenty of vitamin B6. Really, what’s not to like? Here are a few recipes using the healthy root veggie as the main ingredient:

This glazed radish recipe is courtesy of Martha Stewart and is a really nice summer side dish.

Pickled radishes from The Kitchn, perfect on fish tacos. Enjoy!

Roasted Beet Chips

Another vegetable..

Roasted Beet Chips

Roasted Beet Chips

in the form of a chip. A few weeks ago it was kale, this time beets. I found this recipe on Martha Stewart – usually her recipes are bit too complicated for me or require at least one ingredient I’ve never heard of, but this one is totally doable!

Ingredients:
2 medium beets
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds.
2. Peel beets and slice 1/16 inch thick.
3. In a large bowl, toss beets with extra-virgin olive oil
4. On two rimmed baking sheets (or use one sheet and bake in two batches), arrange beets in a single layer. Stack another rimmed baking sheet on top of each.
5. Bake about 20 minutes (until edges of beets begin to dry out).
6. Uncover and rotate sheets. Bake 10 to 20 minutes, removing chips as they become lightened in color.
7. Transfer to a wire rack; chips will crisp up as they cool.
