A Chicago button maker's cheery, modern kitchen redesign has us swooning. More on that below, plus baked grapes, a lovely turnip salad for Rosh Hashana and fresh homemade lunch ideas.
- The Chicago Reader's Nest Issue highlights six favorite living spaces, including the Palmer Square kitchen of Busy Beaver Button Company founder and CEO Christen Carter. Check out the spice rack wheel!
- The Los Angeles Times' Rosh Hashana offerings include a gorgeous Turnip and Red Pepper Salad.
- The Oregonian looks at what happens when you bake grapes into focaccia, galletes and cakes. "They plump up. The skin puckers and softens. They release a sweet, musky syrup that smells most un-jellylike and more like nectar sipped on a crisp fall day." Sold!
- After racking up nearly $20 on a hearty (but far from outrageous) deli lunch, Amanda Gold of the San Francisco Chronicle decided it was time to make a change. She offers several flavor-packed but cost-conscious lunch recipes, including Chilled Arugula & Vegetable Soup and End-of-Summer Farro Salad.
