Tumblr Treats.

My goodness, there are just so many lovable things on tumblr lately! To see all of my favorites, you're just going to have to go right to my tumblr. I'll give you a preview here, of course.

I think I'm going through a nook phase. I've collected lots of nook pictures.

If you were waiting for a sign, this is it.

From Sleepy Hollow, one of my favorite movies.

I don't really go to the movies, but I am dying to see Midnight in Paris. I think Marion Cotillard is stunning.

...and of course we all know I love JGL

Lastly, I'm hungry.

Clicking the images will take you to the source.

Recipe: Gwenyth's Dip

Do you guys read Matchbook Magazine?
It's quickly become a new favorite, because they have a little bit everything, and everything in it is cute. I really enjoy flipping through the (digital) pages and looking at all of the beautiful pictures.

One thing that caught my eye in this most recent June issue is the piece on Gwenyth Paltrow's new cookbook, where she shares recipes that her dad used to make. This dip is one of them. I love Gwenyth, I love dips, and I was able to get all of the ingredients at the local supermarket. It was really a nobrainer to put together.

I used to not-so-secretly attempt to mimic the style of Margot Tenenbaum. It didn't work out so well- I could never get my hair to look like that and I didn't have a floor length fur coat and I didn't smoke cigarettes (still don't, FYI). Mostly I just wore a lot of eyeliner. Making this dip is the closest I will ever be to becoming the next Gwenyth Paltrow.

If you click on the picture of the avocados it will take you to the recipe, but here it is if you're lazy:

1 cup vegenaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
2 finely chopped scallions
pinch of coarse salt
few grinds of coarse black pepper
1 garlic clove minced or put through a press
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped capers

stir it all together. eat with carrots, crackers, on a sandwich, however you want!
