Relationship Hierarchy - Stationery is Top Tier

More on the post we had last week about putting relationships on paper! Watch the video + let us know what you think - are your top tier friends getting handwritten notes from you? Does a paper greeting mean more than a digital one? {That used to be a no-brainer, but with sites like Paperless Post and the Cartolina iPhone app, not anymore.}

Are You Ready for a New Paperclip?

Don't act like you've never seen pretty paperclips and thought "Nah, that's silly."
If you love stationery, chances are, you love all the accessories, too. Pens, pencils, colored inks, lined envelopes, and yes, paperclips.
So the brand ACCO has come up with a new style of paperclips - what's your take?

Another Recipe from the Ice Cream Contest

Another fave from our Ice Cream Contest was the Chunky  Monkey flavor. Num num num - peanut butter, banana {but not too much}, and chocolate, topped with raisinets or brownie crumbles.
Not quite the same as this, but I'd say just as good.

Find the recipe here.

Winning Ice Cream Recipe!

We had an Ice Cream Contest in our sweet little town this weekend. Haile did make the Goat Cheese ice cream, but her official entry was Peanut Butter with Chocolate Chips + boy was it good! The Goat Cheese was great {if you like goat cheese}, and we decided it should be paired with something sweet like a strawberry jam or blood orange syrup. But the PB.... oh my. Plus it was super easy! I'll have to get the official recipe from Haile, but she said it was just pb, sugar, and a little cream, then pop it in the ice cream maker.

One of the official winners this weekend was a Strawberry Basil ice cream - I personally voted for it. It's waaaay yum. Here's a link to the recipe, and a few pics from the contest.

Oh yes - Bonbons!

Homemade bonbons - who knew they were so easy?! I'm hoping Haile will make a goat cheese version of these for her entry in an upcoming ice cream contest. Jaclyn from Food + Words has made a dandy little tutorial and she promises we can all make these.
