Fashion Highlight

The Gucci show is always one to watch during Milan Fashion Week and this season’s Spring Summer 2015 collection did not disappoint.  The 1970s were on full display with modern, fitted silhouettes in earthy neutral tones.  Groovy multi-colored floral inspired patterns adorned other pieces. Color blocking was still a strong element and added new life to a familiar denim dress.  But my favorite looks were in outerwear.  I’ve admired Gucci jackets for the last few years for their beautiful shapes with strategically placed buttons and pockets – the look screams mod and feels timelessly edgy.  I found a few Gucci looks that inspired looks that could be worn now.

In the Kitchen: Eleven Madison Park Granola Recipe

I love oats.

I love oatmeal cookies, oatmeal, and granola.  My dearest friend and I went to Eleven Madison Park years ago when we were fresh out of college and trying fabulous restaurants all over New York City.  To tell you the truth, I didn’t remember much of that meal.  But my friend reminded me of the scrumptious and unique granola.  It had an interesting texture from coconut and a wonderful fragrance from a hint of olive oil.  I’m glad I found the recipe here and was able to recreate it at home.  I didn’t exactly have all the ingredients on hand, but loved a touch of honey and adorned it with blueberries, my absolute favorite dried fruit.  The result is a wonderful granola with varying textures from the coconut, oats, and pistachio.

How do you make a staple dish stand out?
