It’s 10:30am in Seattle. The darkest skies. I opened a box my friend @farming_villavista sent to me from her orchard in California. Full is sunshine. Terisa has been sending me care packages for the last 5 years and I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude. I mean, an angel. Check out what else she sent to me in Stories. She grows all of this. Plus more. Thank you, Terisa. 💕

It’s obvious Brittany approaches her food as art when you scroll through her beautifully curated Instagram feed. If her use of color, pattern or shape doesn’t get you, her selection of delicious foods certainly will.

Cherried away. 🍒| Foraged blackberry pie with black sesame dragonfruit crust and a cherry crown. The original version of this design was an accident—born out of a failed plan and reluctantly posted only after another design also fell through. As luck would have it, @designmilk reshared it, catapulting it into internet notoriety. Eep. @lokokitchen had been slowly building momentum, despite its inadvertent genesis, but this was the catalyst that pushed the snowball doughn the hill. And what a wild ride it has been. Happy almost 1 year, friends! 🤯 . . . . . . . . . . #lokokitchen #blackberry #cherry #dragonfruit #blacksesame #pie #moderndesign #visualstyle #designmilk #fromwherewedesign #designforall @design #whpcolorplay @instagram #happyaccident #stringart #f52pie #buzzfeast #huffposttaste #abmlifeissweet #tastingtable #onmytable #bakeandshare #beautifulcuisines #marthabakes #imsomartha #howisummer #seattle

Seattle-based Lauren Ko’s pies look almost too good to eat. Lauren adapts classic pie flavors — like cherry or apple — and lesser-known pie ingredients — like peanut butter or ginger — into unique splays of art you can’t help but want to save forever.

a year after we started shooting it, the #reducetariancookbook is just a week away from being released into the wild. we’re so proud, excited, and can’t wait to share it with the world! some of you have already pre-ordered the book and your love and support just means so much to me. the concept behind the book is something i truly believe in and think is the way of the future. the @reducetarian movement is composed of individuals who are committed to eating less meat – red meat, poultry, and seafood – as well as less dairy and fewer eggs, regardless of the degree or motivation. this concept is appealing because not everyone is willing to follow an "all-or-nothing" diet. however, reducetarianism is still inclusive of vegans, vegetarians, and anyone else who reduces the amount of animal products in their diet. overall, a plant forward diet is healthy, it’s easy, and it’s good for the well being of animals and the environment. . the link to pre-order the book will be up in my profile for the next 24 hours if any of this resonates with you – or if you just like great recipes with pretty photos! xx
