On Our Plates: A Valentine’s Day List of Items We Love!


Things Laura currently loves!

Morning Mug: My sister-in-law got me this mug for my birthday. When you add hot coffee it “wakes up” and gives you a smile!

Strawberry Hat: Is this not the cutest hat ever?! I need to get one for every baby I know. They also have other fruits, like apple and blueberry.

Soberdough: Best name ever. This Nashville based company makes natural bread mixes with ingredients you can recognize. All you need to do is add some beer and bake!

State Pillows: Show some love for your state this Valentine’s day! Available in all sorts of state shapes and colors, but I had to show some love for my home state of Kentucky.

Indie Lee Facial Oil: Until recently I would not dream of putting oil on my face, but this converted me. Great for oily or dry complexions. My skin has never felt better!

Necklace: This delicate handmade necklace has real baby’s breath inside. I think this would be a great addition to a spring (or dreaming of spring) outfit.

Things Amy currently loves!

The Snow Queen – One of the most beautifully illustrated children’s books I’ve ever seen. With all the snow we’ve been having lately, I half expect to see the Snow Queen outside my window.

MonTea: I’ve been drinking lots of tea recently, and this little shop in Lexington has a lovely selection.

Boden Selina Dress – This dress is completely out of my grad-school budget range, but it’s just so incredibly lovely. Sigh. A girl can dream.

Sochi Puppies – Olympic athlete Gus Kenworthy came across a stray mamma and her four pups in Sochi, and he’s working to bring them back to the US. If you don’t have a pup, check out your local Humane Society or shelter. It’ll be one of best choices you ever make!

Sherlock – Ok, I’m hooked. You should be, too.

Baked Chicken Parmesan Meatballs in Tomato Cream Sauce from Annie’s Eats – I’ve made these twice in the last two weeks, and I neeeever repeat recipes that close together. But these are just that good. They just *might* be on next week’s menu, too!
