And I’m Off!

I’m off to Portland (tomorrow)!  I am SO excited!  I’m heading to Indulge Conference and I am not only excited about the conference itself, but also the fact that I get to see my bestie Phi, and I get to explore a city I’ve never seen.  I’ve heard such amazing things about Portland, and I’m really looking forward to experiencing it!



After the conference, Phi and I are heading straight to California, where we are participating in the Taste: Unearthing the Art and Science of Food Blogger Program sponsored by Best Food Facts!  Before we head to this fantastic California adventure, Phi and I have an extra day in Portland, so definitely let me know if there is something I just can’t miss!

Once we get to Cali, we get to participate in some incredible tours and learning experiences.  We get to learn about wine and honey and olive oil (to name a few).  I will of course be instagramming the highlights (@orderinthekitch), but if you friend me on Snapchat (@orderinthekitch), you will get even more California and Portland.  So come travel with me and see the sights!

Present Sense Impressions (Link Love)

In law, Present Sense Impressions are statements which describe an event while it is occurring. These posts contain my daily musings, like good finds on Pinterest, recipes I’m drooling over, and other things that I’m generally loving lately. Smores Frap

This Rhubarb Bread Pudding.  OMG.  Just OMG.

This Rhubarb Danish.  More Rhubarb, yes please.

This Peach Bellini Sorbet is calling my name.  It’s pulling at both at my sorbet heartstrings and my Bellini heartstrings.

This Farro Caprese Salad is such a fun twist on a classic.  Love!

These Sweet Potato Burgers are the only time I’ve ever wanted a veggie burger.  Ever.

These Brown Sugar and Honey Broiled Grapefruits.  Oh yes.  I always just eat them raw.  So boring now.

This Perfectly Pink Angel Food Cake.  Like fluffy heaven.

This Poached Champagne Grape Stuffed Brioche.  So stunning.

This Strawberry Pimm’s Cup.  I want the whole dang pitcher.

Citrus Sugar Cookies

These citrus sugar cookies were a last minute decision. Yes, they took some time to make, but the decision to make them took no more than a few minutes…and it was completely worth it!citrus sugar cookies

My sister is in town for a couple of weeks before heading off to her internship in Virginia, and she was over at my place studying for her upcoming licensing tests (for insurance!) and I was working on work things and blog things. Her friend Meghan came over as well and we enjoyed coffee while we worked…we almost had our own little cafe! The only thing missing was something delicious and crumbly to enjoy with our coffee. Enter these cookies… (more…)

DIY Painted Shoes

I know these DIY posts are probably coming out of left field, right?  Well truth is, I’ve always enjoyed a little DIY, and I’ve been saving these projects in my folder of things to share with you and I keep getting distracted.  But since I don’t want to inundate you with DIY posts in lieu of recipes, I’ll limit these posts to being posted in between recipes and the usual things you find on this little ol’ blawg.  These DIY painted shoes were oh so fun to make.  I’m not sure what got into me, but I’m sure it has something to do with some project I saw at some point or another on pinterest…where many of my inspirations come from!DIY-painted-shoes (more…)

This Week on The Docket

In court every morning, the judge calls the “docket” or the calendar for that day. Here on the blog, “The Docket” is my weekly post that gives you a little peek into the life of the Attorney in an Apron, and what kinds of fun things are happening in my life this week! 

prosecco and peonies

Oh my gosh you guys, I’m so behind on these!  The last time I posted The Docket, was 2 weeks ago and I was telling you guys all about how I’m on Snapchat as Orderinthekitch.  Well, I’m still on Snapchat and happy to report that people are actually adding me!  That’s so fun!  I would highly recommend adding me in the next couple of weeks because I have some AMAZING trips coming up!  I’m heading to Portland and then California and I cannot freaking wait!  But let’s get back to this week (or the last couple of weeks!) (more…)

Present Sense Impressions aka Link Love

In law, Present Sense Impressions are statements which describe an event while it is occurring. These posts contain my daily musings, like good finds on Pinterest, recipes I’m drooling over, and other things that I’m generally loving lately. 


This guide on how to make a cheese platter.  I want this for every meal.  For the rest of ever.

This Cinnamon Vanilla Dolce Iced Coffee.  Y’all know how I feel about cinnamon.  I want to drink it while eating 4 of these Coffee Maple Donuts.

This Spicy Edamame.  Anything with a kick makes me swoon.  This Grilled Buffalo Chicken Caesar Salad is screaming my name.  My husband would LOVE.

This Homemade Vanilla Cinnamon Raisin Almond Butter AND these Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Bean Glaze.  Cinnamon cinnamon cinnamon!

These Bruleed Grapefruit Mojitos.  I need one STAT.  I also want 5 of these S’mores Brownie Bars.  Life complete.

DIY Bar Cabinet

I’m not going to lie… I’ve been holding out on you guys for awhile.  I made this DIY Bar Cabinet at least a year ago, with the intention of telling you all about it, and then, totally forgot.  I got wrapped up in new recipes, new jobs, moving, getting married, the works!  But today, I’m finally going to give you the scoop on this DIY Bar Cabinet that I made out of an old half-broken bookshelf.DIY-Bar-Cabinet


Sweet Heat Lime Sorbet

It’s almost Cinco De Mayo!  When I think of Mexican food, I think of margaritas.  I know that’s probably not great, and I’m slightly embarrassed to admit this.  I would love to go to Mexico and have real Mexican food.  Not America’s version of Mexican food, but true Mexican food.  Maybe one day…Sweet-Heat-Lime-Sorbet

Until then, I’ll semi-enjoy Americanized Mexican food, and heavily enjoy a good Margarita… (more…)
