Object of Desire: Multipurpose Insulated Picnic Totes by Millie Lottie - they are multipurpose and not just for picnics (take the cutting board out and use it as a market bag, beach bag, overnight bag, or in my case, a sports bag)
I stepped up my bag game when I found Millie Lottie bags. Made of durable canvas, a scorch-proof:wipeable lining, they are perfect for carrying a hot-out-of-the-oven casserole to Thanksgiving dinner, bringing appetizers to the Hollywood Bowl or a picnic lunch on the beach. They come with a beautiful cutting board that fits perfectly into the bottom and is great for stability, elastic pockets for wine bottles or salad dressing. My favorite part is that they are stylish and made in San Francisco by a women-run company.
“My Millie Lottie tote makes an ideal beach bag since it has an insulated liner along the bottom that helps keep foods and drinks cold and protects the bag from wet towels and suits.
This amazing insulated tote from @millielottietotes holds a 9x13 inch pan, say full of lemon bars.
I am so loving my tote and have gifted two other's in the past month...beauty and function co-existing while supporting strong women and entrepreneurship in the contest of sharing a meal. BOOM! What a powerful and practical partnership.
Love my Etta Tote for delicate produce, kept straight by the cutting board. I love supporting women-run business, made locally.
Learn how to SMOKE SARDINES with a stove-top cooker with January Hammock. When it's fresh sardine season, bring the flavor in to your kitchen. It's easy to smoke fish and it's always better when it's home made.
I recently posted about a STRAWBERRY CAKE made from my mother's recipe box that created quite a flurry of DM's, messages, emails and even phone calls asking for the recipe. This dessert is pink, ultra sweet and full of smiles with every bite, one that would brighten any Valentine's Day table.
Some Plum Life
"Mom and her plums," is the phrase I've heard uttered more than once over the week.I love plums, esp little Italian and French plums that have ripened on the tree. Having a harvest this year is a highlight of my Spring. In the 20 years living in my home, our plum has only born fruit one other time. Spending more time in my urban back...
My daughter and I decided it was time for a sheltering project. We decided to make a Chicken Paitan Ramen. The recipe was 7 pages including the broth, schmaltz, seasoning and meatballs. (This link take you to lots of casual ramen-process videos in my Instagram stories @millielottietotes)
