wedding wednesday: registry tips

I get asked more often than I ever thought I would about registering. I loved creating our wedding registry with Will (who doesn’t like to point the scanning gun at everything around the store?) and always love the topic. We learned a lot during our registry process and after our wedding and I love to share our wedding registry tips as often as I can to help others going through the process. I’m so excited about this post – it takes me back to those early days of engagement and the whirlwind of wedding planning, which were both so exciting and happy.  These registry tips can be applied to most types of registries and is helpful for guests as well as the future married couple, so don’t worry if you’re not a bride-to-be yet!

Register for gifts of all price ranges
When Will and I first started registering for wedding gifts, we were trigger shy because we felt so guilty about putting items on our list that were expensive. We felt awkward because we felt like we were asking family and friends to pay a lot for items that would fill our home. One of the associates at the department store gave us a list of all of the items we should include on our registry, and as college seniors with no home goods of our own, we had a lot of work to do. She reminded us that there are lots of people who love us and want to get nice gifts to celebrate. We realized that not everything had to be on our budget, and we didn’t have to get everything on our registry, we just needed to provide options. We wanted to include items our college friends could buy, but also didn’t want our generous families and family friends to have to put together a collage of items to feel like their gift was within their price range. I would suggest including small items under $25 (kitchen gadgets, small towels and pillows are great for this), under $50, under $100, under $200 and some items above these price points. (more…)

easter recipe ideas

A Good Friday to you! With Easter only a few days away, I have rounded up some dishes for your Easter brunch, Easter supper and Easter dessert. A lot of these recipes take a twist on traditional Easter and seasonal recipes, with what looks like resounding success. I love the creativity in some of these dishes, but the ingredients that still remind me of the dishes we have always had in the spring.

My family tried How Sweet Eats’ bacon blue cheese deviled eggs last year and they were just as delicious as they sound! I so badly want to make the carrot cake cinnamon buns and the citrus asparagus. Also, I will always have room for more of the carrot cake with Nutella swirled cream cheese frosting from earlier this week.

Delicious Easter recipe ideas

Brunch: the best meal of the day. We have some great options.  Take a spin on the classic dessert with carrot cake cinnamon rolls topped with mascarpone glaze.  Don’t those look amazing?!  I want to reach into the picture and grab one for my own brunch. (more…)

carrot cake loaf with nutella swirled cream cheese frosting

Happy first day of spring! Let’s celebrate with a slice of carrot cake loaf with nutella swirled cream cheese frosting.

Carrot cake loaf with nutella swirled cream cheese frosting is the perfect breakfast, snack and dessert this Easter and this spring.  It's basically vegetable bread, right?

I have always associated carrot cake with Easter and spring. I don’t think we had an overwhelming number of carrot cakes around Easter growing up, but all of the stores and bakeries seem to increase their supply of the cream cheese frosted cakes around this time, as if the Easter bunny would really have a shot at getting a slice after setting out the baskets.

This loaf isn’t one that will hang around long. It is moist and delicate, but still substantial. Maple syrup creates a deeper flavor than brown sugar alone and each bite is filled with spices. The Nutella swirled cream cheese frosting is the perfect combination of tang and sweet and makes the perfect pairing to each bite of your bread. (more…)

We are so close to the weekend we can see it.  Just one more day to power through!  Woohoo!  Daylight saving time threw me off at the beginning of this week like I don’t remember in the past.  Is that a sign that I am getting old or do I just require more caffeine?  Both?  However, the beautiful weather and blooming trees and flowers made it a little easier to handle.  Spring, please stay!

The internet was chock full of election articles this week after many state primaries on Tuesday, but here are some of the other things it provided for our link love this week:

Related to politics, the Canadian Prime Minister and his family visited the White House last week for one of the final US state dinners the Obama’s will host. It was glamorous.

Related to the White House, or the TV world of the White House at least, Joshua Malina announced that he and Hrishikesh Hirway will be hosting The West Wing Weekly podcast, coming out soon!  This is great news for those of us who watch and rewatch and rewatch the entire West Wing series over and over agian.  Now we will be able to rewatch them again and again with Joshua Malina’s explanation.  What’s next? ;)

A study came out in February in the Journal of Physiology, concluding that some exercises are better than others in improving long-term brain health.  They tested the brain function of rats for three types of exercises: running, high-intensity interval training and weightlifting. Out of these they determined that rats who ran a few miles each day had more vigorous levels of growth and development of nervous tissue in their brains than either of the other two exercises.  They suggest any aerobic and sustained physical activity is good for brain development.  Wanna ride bikes?

I need these tips all the time.  There are always tasks that look so much better than the daunting blank slate or starting a project.  Just do it: stop procrastinating, just start.

The movie comes out in June, the cookbook comes out in October.  I know which Dorie I want to find. http://amzn.to/1Ua8aUE

On the topic of recipes, there are so many things we love to hate when we are following a recipe.  Yes, they tell you to always read a recipe all the way through before starting, but sitll, sometimes they just need to be written to be more user-friendly.  I’m sure I fall into some of these traps, but that doesn’t stop me from complaining about other recipe writing flaws, and hopefully avoiding them in my own.  “Recipes that forget to mention…” are at the top of my personal hate list.

Happy Friday and happy weekending friends!  I hope it is lovely!

wedding planning: what to do first

Will and I currently have a fridge full of save the dates and wedding invitations and have lots of friends who have recently gotten engaged.

Woodhouse wedding planning

Getting married a month after college graduation, we were one of the first couples out of our friends to tie the knot. Because we have already gone through the wedding planning process, a lot of our friends come to us with questions and we always love to help and share the things that worked well for us. Since I have gotten so many questions about it lately, I thought a little series on wedding planning might be a good way to share our wedding planning process and hopefully answer questions and help brides and couples along the way.

Woodhouse wedding planning

Woodhouse wedding planning

When Will and I look back on our wedding, we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. We loved the details of our special day and are glad all the preparation and thought that went into it paid off. I don’t claim to be a wedding planner, but there are a lot of things I learned and can share from experience that might help a bride-to-be. First, I will guide any bride-to-be to a planner.  I used the Southern Living Wedding Planner, which was really helpful, but since my wedding Southern Weddings has come out with a planner that has also gotten good reviews.  Aside from getting a tangible planner, we found these 5 things most important to complete before moving on to anything else in our wedding planning. The order is important here.

1. Budget
2. Guest List
3. Dreams and Inspiration
4. Venue
5. Priority Vendors (photographer)

This list is in order for a reason. Your budget may affect the size of your guest list; the number of people you invite may determine which venues you can use; and the date you reserve the venue will determine what date you give the rest of your vendors to check their availability. Dreams and inspiration come into play before the all-important venue selection because you don’t want to sign a contract for a venue that may not fit your dream wedding. This is where you should think about your style, setting, size and spending.

Weddings are expensive. It took us a while to get over the “sticker shock” of how much everything costs, and how much there is to pay for. While your budget and the size of your guest list may have the largest impact on your venue options, you should also think about how the venue fits into your ideas for the rest of your wedding. This is not where your little detailed ideas come in yet, just big picture. If you are having the ceremony and reception in different locations, this is also where you will want to think about your ideal reception and the ease of traveling from the ceremony to the reception site. If you have always dreamed of a reception under a big tent on a large field, a ceremony at a venue in a city might not be your best option. This isn’t to say you can’t do both, but think about your overall vision before booking your venue.

Woodhouse wedding planning

After scrambling to do all of that, I found it really helpful to list out the for the rest of my wedding planning process to list out the items that were important to us to include, and creating a coherent feel for the wedding. Will and I came up with our top priorities and 10 buzzwords that included details, emotions and the overall vision we wanted to have for our wedding day. Priorities will change from couple to couple, but we knew that we wanted a great photographer. We will keep our wedding photos forever, and we wanted to be able to have beautiful pictures to look back on for the rest of our lives. For some people, priorities may be having a great band, serving delicious food, or making sure your wedding is very cultural. Once you have set your priorities, list your 10 buzzwords that will guide the look and feel of your wedding. By using these priorities and buzzwords to guide your wedding planning, your smaller details will come together coherently.

Woodhouse wedding planning

Woodhouse wedding planning

Weddings take a lot of time to plan, are easiest with good organization and often must be an “all-hands-on-deck” process when you get closer to the date. While your fiancé may not care at all about the types of flowers used in the ceremony and the font used in the program, there are plenty of things they can do and ways they can help. The same goes for lots of members of your family who want to help. In order to coordinate all these tasks, it is important to write down all of the tasks that need to get done and delegate. I’m planning on sharing more tips on organization, registries, how to make sure all of the planning and execution goes well, staying on budget and more in later posts. I’m excited about this new topic – I hope it is fun and helpful!

guinness brownies with irish cream chocolate ganache frosting

With St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, Guinness brownies with Irish cream chocolate ganache frosting should really be on your menu. Two great Irish beverages, combined into one delicious chocolatey dessert – how could you go wrong?

Guinness brownies with Irish cream ganache frosting are the perfect treat for this St. Patrick's day!

I think it is funny that, even though St. Patrick’s Day is closer to next weekend, all of the St. Patrick’s Day parades and celebrations were this weekend. At first I didn’t really understand why they didn’t wait until next weekend, closer to the actual holiday, but then I realized that having St. Patrick’s Day parades two days after St. Patrick’s Day would be like celebrating Christmas on December 27th – probably not the best idea. Lucky for you we can have these brownies before St. Patrick’s Day too.

Guinness brownies with Irish cream ganache frosting are the perfect treat for this St. Patrick's day!

Also, I didn’t realize that building a house for the leprechauns wasn’t a staple St. Patrick’s Day agenda item. Did anyone else do this every year? I looked it up and it seems fairly common to build a trap, and I guess that is what ours was, but my younger siblings and I really just wanted to give the little guy a place to stay for the night and see a picture of him to make sure he had red hair. We really weren’t that into St. Patrick’s Day on the whole, but you better believe we built some awesome leprechaun houses. Will tells me this isn’t a normal thing to do, but I’ve learned that my childhood was full of abnormal traditions that I thought were done across the board. Someone’s got to be unique, right? ;)

These brownies are dense, fudgy, and intensely chocolaty. The smooth Irish cream chocolate ganache frosting is filled with the flavor of the Irish cream and pairs well with the deep dark brownie base. I usually don’t like icing on my brownies, but this one works so well and really brings the perfect flavor for a St. Patrick’s Day party. The semi-sweet creamy ganache juxtaposes the dark truffle-like brownies underneath and takes the brownies to the next level. All you need now is a big, cold glass of milk (or a cold glass of Guinness, if you are really feeling Irish).

Guinness brownies are simple to make and easily wow a crowd. The flavor of the beer doesn’t come through too much, it mainly acts to deepen the flavor of the chocolate and of the brownie overall. If you don’t want to use as much Guinness though, swap out some of the beer for more coffee. Like the stout beer, coffee doesn’t bring a strong flavor to the brownies, but does enhance the dark chocolate. Either way you choose, you can’t go wrong with these rich, chewy, delicious Guinness brownies with Irish cream chocolate ganache frosting. Mmmmm, let’s just say that one more time.

Guinness brownies with Irish cream ganache frosting are the perfect treat for this St. Patrick's day!

I know what Irish inspired dessert I’ll be having this week. Maybe the leprechaun will come for these brownies – they’re magically delicious ;)

Guinness Brownies with Irish Cream Chocolate Ganache Frosting

Guinness Brownies
½ cup butter
1½ cups sugar
6 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
⅓ cup Guinness (or other stout or dark beer)
2 tablespoons brewed espresso or coffee
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup flour
6 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
½ teaspoon salt

Irish Cream Chocolate Ganache Frosting
10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Irish cream liquor

Guinness Brownies
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and line a 9″x9″ pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Remove from the microwave, stir in the sugar, and microwave again for 30 seconds. Stir again and microwave for about 60 seconds (you might have to go a few seconds longer, depending on the strength/weakness of your microwave). You want the sugars and butter to bubble a little, but not burn.

Remove the sugar-butter mixture from the microwave and stir in bittersweet chocolate. The chocolate should melt completely as you stir it into the warm ingredients. If it doesn’t fully melt, put it in the microwave for another 15 seconds. Allow the mixture to cool slightly before whisking the Guinness, coffee, eggs, and vanilla.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring only until just combined.

Pour the batter into your prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a tester or a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out mostly clean (a little batter is fine – they will be fudgy). Allow the brownies to cool completely before frosting.

Irish Cream Chocolate Ganache Frosting
Place the chocolate in a medium bowl.

In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the heavy cream and Irish cream until they just bubble around the edges. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chocolate and let it sit for a minute, then stir continuously until the chocolate melts into the cream and comes together into a uniform mixture. Let the frosting sit for at least one hour at room temperature, then spread it all over the brownies. Let the frosting covered brownies sit for a few minutes before cutting.*

*I have found that cutting brownies is easiest with a plastic knife. The brownies don’t stick to the plastic and therefore don’t clump up on the knife as you cut.

March is flying, spring is coming, and I couldn’t be happier to have the warm weather here to stay.  Please stick around, sunshiney days!  The flowers have started to bloom here and even some of the trees are budding with pink and purple flowers.  Spring in Chapel Hill is always so beautiful, floral and colorful.  Maybe this weekend we will have time to see even more of the buds :)  Until then, let’s look at the link love the internet gave us this week.

link love lucky charms cake via

In preparation for St. Patrick’s Day (which is less than 1 week away!), can we take a minute to drool over this gorgeous and over-the-top St. Patrick’s Day party?  Will’s family has lots of Irish in it, and I can only imagine with the abundance of redheads in our family that we must have some Irish heritage too, so I’m taking notes over here. 

If that is too much for you, but you still want a festive way to celebrate the lucky leprechaun day next week, this fun lucky charms cake might be an easier way to go.  You could also fall back on the delicious shortbread stuffed chocolate cupcakes with Irish cream frosting from last year.  You really can’t go wrong.

Speaking of the islands across the pond, have you heard the latest Harry Potter news?!?!  I feel like I’m so behind on this, but the new Harry Potter play is coming out as a book this summer.  Growing up, we always picked up the Harry Potter books right when they came out and read them over summer vacation – that tradition might have to come back again this summer.  

I’m surrounded by college students who are all on spring break or about to be on spring break.  A few of the freshman have come by my office and asked me what I’m doing for spring break, which is sweet but so funny.  When I tell them I don’t get a spring break (welcome to the working world!) they are so shocked.  One student even asked me what I was going to do while all of the students were gone haha.  Even though I don’t have a spring break, I can still fantasize about these great bucket list destinations.  Want to come along?

Has your brunch ever been plagued by a hard pineapple?  Has your guacamole ever been speckled with hard avocados?  Never fear, we don’t have to endure underripe (or overripe) produce any longer!  This guide to picking produce is great to keep around for those times you are in the grocery store smelling fruit and picking leaves, trying to guess which fruits and vegetables are going to taste best.

One more on food, while we’re at it.  Salt is a vague term.  Is it sea salt? Kosher salt? Table salt? Iodized salt? What brand of salt is it? All of the answers to these questions really do impact how your recipes taste.  Different types and brands of salt have different densities, so you could be adding way too much or way too little salt if the type isn’t specified.  Let’s get to know our salt in this great guide to cooking salts, because we want our food to taste it’s best.

That’s all for this week!  Have a lovely weekend, everyone!  See you on the other side :)

 

charleston, south carolina

A few weeks ago Will had his big STEP 1 exam, had three days off then started with clinical orientation and rotations last week. We knew that it could be typical in some rotations for medical students to work six days a week, and those three days off might be our last shot at a trip together in a while, so we seized the opportunity and semi-spontaneously road tripped to Charleston, South Carolina. I have been to Charleston a few times before, but had only seen a few parts of the city, and Will was a Charleston newbie. I did a little research beforehand, just to make sure we hit all of the major sites, and we picked up recommendations from a few locals throughout the trip.

Charleston 2016

Getting recommendations from locals is the best way to go – they always know the best spots, especially for food. We do this on lots of our trips, asking bankers, waitresses, people in the shops, and we have had really great experiences because of it. I’m not at all a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of person, and I always make a list of places to go, things to do and see and places to eat, if not a full trip itinerary (call me type A), but it is nice to leave room for a few things that the locals love too.

Charleston 2016

We walked and walked and walked all around Charleston and saw Rainbow Row, King Street, the Battery, College of Charleston, the Citadel, the French Quarter, the pineapple fountain and waterfront park, Arthur Ravenel Jr. bridge, the pretty pink Mills House, historic Broad Street and lots of beautiful pastel homes and window boxes overflowing with flowers in between. We had dinner one night at Hominy Grill, which was so Southern and so good. It is definitely worth a visit if you are heading to Charleston soon!

One of the recommendations we got from a local was Poogan’s Porch for the best brunch. Brunch is the best meal of the day, so naturally we stopped in on Saturday morning to put our name on the list. The wait was supposed to be at least an hour (it actually ended up being shorter), but we walked around with Will’s cousin, a College of Charleston freshman, and stopped in a small coffee shop for some pre-brunch coffee and tea. It was nice to be able to see the streets of Charleston and pop into a cute local coffee shop while still having concrete plans for brunch. Poogan’s Porch was definitely worth the wait – sooooo good. I think I can safely say that all three of us would highly recommend it and would go back again.

Our hotel was near the Citadel, which neither of us had ever seen. The neighborhoods surrounding the campus are full of beautiful live oak trees with Spanish moss hanging everywhere. All of the buildings on campus look like white sand castles that you make with those pre-shaped buckets. It was pristine and pretty, in a very different way from the rest of Charleston. Live oaks were scattered around campus and the soft Spanish moss drooping off the branches provided a stark contrast to the white washed buildings. While it wasn’t on our list of things to do, we were both really glad we made it over to the Citadel.  I didn’t bring my camera when we went to the Citadel, so only have a few phone pictures of the campus, but I’ll try to get those up soon.

Later in the afternoon, we also walked around College of Charleston. I can absolutely see why people want to go there after they visit. Will’s cousin directed us to the Cistern, where we were both immediately amazed. The buildings were beautiful and the common theme of oak trees and Spanish moss created arches above many of the brick walkways. Some of the departments were housed in beautiful pastel houses with double decker porches, like those in the rest of historic Charleston.

pistachio pesto grilled cheese

When the weather looks like spring, but doesn’t feel quite warm enough to be spring, pistachio pesto grilled cheese sandwiches are the perfect compromise. Fresh flavors combined with warm comfort food is ideal for a crisp night.

Whoever created the grilled cheese deserves generous praise. I mean, toasty, buttery bread, filled with gooey cheese? Yes, please. The addition of sweet and garlicky pistachio pesto takes this one over the top and makes it far superior to the plain-ol’ American cheese version.

Flavor-packed pistachio pesto grilled cheese is comfort food at it's best.

The perfect grilled cheese is made on low heat with butter in the pan and freshly grated cheese – the meltier the better. Thick, seedy bread is also best, but we’ll use what we have. This pesto is the easiest spread you can make and so delicious, and a grilled cheese sandwich doesn’t even need explaining, but we will anyways!

We throw together pistachios, garlic, olive oil and rosemary, which is hearty, no matter the season and is the perfect bridge between winter and spring. The mixture turns a bright bright green from the pistachios when pulsed. It is garlicky until cooked, but the leftovers still make a great dip. Spread a thick layer of green on one side of the bread, pile shredded cheese on the other, and then the best part comes – toasting and melting. The cheese melts and melts and melts, the bread is golden and the green pesto seeps out of the sandwich sides.

Word on the radar is that we will get some real spring weather this week, and I really hope so, but until then, you can find this grilled cheese in our lunches and this pesto on our dinners.

Pistachio Pesto Grilled Cheese
Pistachio Pesto (recipe below)
Butter, for pan
Shredded cheese (Greyuere, mozzarella and monterey jack all work well with this)
Bread, sliced

There aren’t measurements for the ingredients above because you can make this as personal as you want, with however much of each ingredient you feel up for each time. As they say in Pirates of the Carribean, they are more like guidelines.

Place a pat of butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat (usually about 1 tablespoon per sandwich) and let the butter melt.

While the butter melts, spread a layer of pesto across one slice of bread and pile the grated cheese on the other side. Press the two sides together and place the sandwich in the pan, cheese side down. Grill until cheese is melted and bread is golden and toasty. Flip the sandwich and cook until golden on the other side. Remove from the skillet, slice and serve!

Pistachio Pesto
2/3 cup pistachios
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons chopped rosemary
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until all ingredients are incorporated and the nuts are well chopped. If you find that your pesto is thicker than you want it to be, add more olive oil, one tablespoon at a time. Keep refrigerated and use as a spread, dip, or sauce.

We have another dose of Friday upon us, and this one comes with a birthday!  Happiest of happy birthdays to Will today! :)  We grabbed a great (and early) breakfast this morning before work, and can’t wait to celebrate some more tonight and tomorrow!  But, while we’re here, let’s check out some link love the internet gave us this week.

sprinkle cake

via

Since we are celebrating birthdays over here, cake is in order.  Maybe a whole room filled with a cake maze would do?  Okay, okay, it’s not a real cake, but Cakeland looks a lot like one.

Have you ever heard Bach played live at the top of a mountain?  You should.  It is captivating beauty and adventure all together and makes me want to listen to cello music all day.

Why do we teach (and expect) girls to be scared?  I am a terribly risk averse person, but I don’t think it is because I am a female or because of my upbringing.  Being scared is not a crime, but we shouldn’t teach that fear.

I recently realized that college spring breaks are already upon us.  While I don’t have a spring break, it is always nice to fantasize about where I could be going.  If you have real travel plans (not just fantasized ones), you may want to book your plane tickets 54 days out.  Or 60 days out.  Or 45?  Do we really know?

I’m not sure where I discovered this website, but I now use Noisli almost every day.  You can mix sounds to create a good mix for relaxation or productivity.  You can make yourself feel like you are in a coffee shop or a thunderstorm.  I really do think it helps with focus and helps deter distractions.  Try it try it!

Happy Friday and happy weekending!  I hope you are up to something fun!
