Rock Salt Vintage

 

Rock Salt Vintage is a new shop find full of minimal, affordable jewelry. Katelin Reeser’s influences of architecture and natural forms are evident in each piece she creates in her signatures structural yet delicate designs. Every piece would take a little black dress to the next level or be just as at home with a pair of jeans and t-shirt, my kind of jewelry.

Amanda Clyne

 

Ghostly and enchanting, Amanda Clyne‘s Erased Photographs are otherworldly. It begins with a photograph printed onto a type of paper to which the ink will not adhere, creating a wet, inky surface that Clyne can manipulate with her brush. Painting over the photograph ultimately leads to the ink’s removal, leaving only residue of the ink.

Smooth Chocolate Pie with Irish Whiskey Whipped Cream

 

Happy Pi Day! I’m celebrating this amazing holiday with Smooth Chocolate Pie with Irish Whiskey Whipped Cream, mini versions actually because everyone knows smaller equals more fun to eat. The Irish Whiskey Whipped Cream also makes this pie the perfect dessert to make for St. Patrick’s Day this coming Friday, or you can eliminate the alcohol if you’re serving children. So whether you whip it up today or later in the week, I promise you’ll love it!

 

 

For the pie
• 12 mini graham cracker pie shells (store-bought or homemade)
• 1 1/2 C sugar
• 1/4 C cornstarch
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 3 C whole milk
• 4 egg yolks
• 6 1/2 oz finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
• 2 tsp vanilla extract
• 2 Tbsp unsalted butter

Combine the dry ingredients – sugar, cornstarch, and salt – in a medium saucepan. Add milk and egg yolks, then whisk together. Stir continuously over medium heat until bubbles form and liquid thickens to the consistency of pudding (7-8 minutes). Remove from heat, then add chocolate, vanilla, and butter. Stir until combined. Spoon into pie shells or small bowls if preferred, chill for 3 hours.

For the whipped cream
• 1 C heavy whipping cream
• 2 Tbsp sugar
• 2 Tbsp Irish whiskey (i.e. Jameson)

Refrigerate a metal mixing bowl for 10-15 minutes. Pour sugar and Irish whiskey into the bowl, using a hand or stand mixer combine. Add heavy whipping cream to mixture and mix on medium-high unit stiff peaks form.

Serves 12. Enjoy!

Bunnie Reiss / Cosmic Animal Gloves

 

These beautifully painted weathered gloves by Los Angeles-based Bunnie ‘Bonnie’ Reiss make me think of spring, which is the complete opposite season that’s outside my windows today. (Winter waited until mid-March to show up!) Reiss’s Cosmic Animal Gloves is an ongoing project turning the old into something, more specifically something bright and symmetrical resembling faces. The spirit animals she creates aren’t immediately obvious, making me love them all the more.

Aditi Kapur / The Theory of Colours

 

Aditi Kapur‘s The Theory of Colours concept was inspired by the unlikely combination of her 10-month-old niece and Drake’s Hotline Bling video. The vivid, rich colors had her rapt and it got Aditi wanting to create something interactive, combining color theory and gel films.

“The Theory Of Colours is the interaction between geometric artworks and gel papers, producing fascinating results with colours that are as much fun as they are a learning experience for kids and adults alike. The process of using different combinations of gel papers with the artwork to arrive at a visual answer makes the prospect especially exciting for kids, owing to how naturally inquisitive they are.”
