Choco-holics Anonymous: A Recipe Round Up

  

 

My name is Lani, and I am an addict. A chocolate addict. Thing is, it's a vice I kind of like.

Dinner party? I'm usually tapped to bring dessert and yes, it's usually chocolate. Dinner party at our house? Dessert is never left off the menu, and yes, it's usually chocolate.

From brownies, to cookies, to breakfast, and back again, there is room for this magical ingredient in every meal of the day.

Here are some of my tried and true favorites and a few new ones I'll be trying out for the first time this Valentines Day.

Who: As in, who am I listening to. St Motel, Cold Cold Man. Catchy stuff. Little EP, all great.

What: As in, what went down this week/end. 

Superbowl! We finally, yes finally, got the basement sort of settled post renovation and were able to watch the game down there. Did I feel guilty about eating ribs there? A little. Did I do it anyways? Yes. And they were freaking delicious (my first time making them- this recipe was a hit!). I'm hoping to get the finishing touches on the space and have some photographs taken soon for a final reveal. Stay tuned.

Where: As in, where it's at. Launches, events, general goings on you need to know about.

The Utterly Eclectic Mediterranean Home of Matt Jones 

Images: Domaine Home

 

I have a soft spot in my heart for Mediterranean homes, they are so similar to our east coast counterpart/Tudor that a lot of good ideas can be seen and shared between the two: stucco walls, arched doorways, iron accents, and exposed beams....the more the merrier.

Mr. Matt Jones (you may recall from Breaking Bad?) and his wife, Kelly Daly, worked with designer Bailey McCarthy to blend together prexisting purchases, some new items, and the new space. To a lovely end, blending Mediterranean, mid-century modern, and homey flea market finds to create a totally inviting space- definitely my cup of crazy. 

I've made mental notes to paint my peacock chair, hunt down some poufs, and not be so scared of blending all these styles together.
