Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup – quite the tongue twister of a recipe name but trust me…it’s oh, so good. If you are feeling under the weather and yearning for spring, this soup is your remedy! It’s a modern spin on your grandmother’s chicken noodle soup with a vibrant lemon pepper pasta and hefty splash of fresh lemon juice. It’s both comforting and refreshing and has been on rotation in our home this winter.
One of my strategies for posting more frequently this year is simply; to share more everyday things. Fortunately, when I started to make another pot of this delicious soup, I remembered my intention and pulled out my camera to document making the recipe. I hope sharing these glimpses of an average day will connect with you. When I read other blogs, they’re my favorite type of posts. Plus, it feels good to not stress about creating content and actually just live it. So welcome to my kitchen, let’s make Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Chicken Soup…
As a stylist, there are certain props I pull for every single photoshoot. Pillows and throws are two of those items. Even if the home appears to be filled to the brim with choices I still bring options and always include a mix of neutrals. They’re sort of a secret weapon in styling. Neutrals add a soft, quiet background layer that enables more colorful pieces to pop on camera. It would work the same in your home as well. I promise.
Having spent years immersed in residential and commercial design (which subsequently transitioned to my current career of editorial styling) I’ve decided to utilize my expertise and help you learn the styling techniques I employ in my work through a new series of posts – Styling 101. Here’s what you can expect and our first lesson!
Generally speaking, January is bleak. Much of our nation is covered in a thick blanket of snow and ice while others (like those of us in California) have been experiencing catastrophic mudslides as a result of massive fires and torrential rainstorms. Winter has been a doozy. But in the midst of dreary weather and gloomy days we’re given a welcome relief in the form of our sunniest fruit; citrus!
Last week we began harvesting our front section of trees at Grove House. They were so overloaded many limbs were brushing the ground and branches were splitting right off unable to bear the weight. The record setting orange tipped the scale at 1.9lbs! A portion of this harvest, about 8,000 pounds, was sold to a farmstand just down the road. It makes me supremely happy when I drive by and see them all piled up like jewels.
