A Potato-Peeling Hack

Maybe I’m late to the party here, but thought this was pretty cool. A potato peeling hack that will save you time and effort over the traditional method – this three-step hack is simple: cut, boil, peel.

Tour This Designer’s Home

This SF home renovation of an interior designer home is cozy and expansive. I love the subdued palette—most of the walls are white, which lets the art stand out. Their artwork throughout was collected slowly through friends and artists, with a focus on modern art by Black artists.

Try These New Spring Recipes

These 16 spring recipes looked so fresh and full of seasonal ingredients – peas, asparagus, leeks, and radishes – perfect dinners in my book! I’m trying this Shaved Asparagus Salad with Orange and Pecorino (pictured) and the Raw and Fried Tuscan Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad.

Upgrade Your Rental Car Experience with Uber

Uber continues its massive disruption tour with a new rental car experience. You can rent through the same major providers you usually do, but with their new rental car valet, your rental car will be brought to your doorstep. And when you’re done, a driver will meet you to take the car back. Genius!

How Did 2020 Have the Lowest Wine Consumption?

Ok, this is just a WTF because I don’t understand this AT ALL. Despite our best efforts, a new report suggests that global wine consumption dropped significantly over the past year, reaching its lowest level since 2002. However, the good old USA once again reaffirms its position as the world’s largest wine consuming country!

The Perfect Marriage of Prosecco and Rosé

A whole new category of wine is here. It’s hard to believe that Prosecco and rosé –two incredibly popular wines – weren’t officially joined until October 2020, when the Prosecco rosé category was approved by the EU. Some Prosecco rosés arrived in the U.S. late last year; others, in just the past few months. This article lists several bottle recommendations. My pick is the 2019 Mionetto Extra Dry Prosecco Rosé, $20

Let Ina Garten Pick Your Mother’s Day Gifts

If you’re last-minute shopping for Mother’s Day, let Queen Ina share her ideas with you. There were a couple of good tips in here, and of course, she’s got to plug her cookbooks – which are admittedly amazing and would make a perfect gift!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Sunday! Happy Mama’s Day to all the Moms!
