FRONT PATIO MAKEOVER

front patio makeover | designlovefest

it takes quite a while to finish the spaces in your home. it’s too expensive and time consuming for me to do the whole thing at once. so we’ve been slowly taking it room by room. since we’ve been staying home a lot more, we really wanted to start utilizing our front yard! it’s so lush and pretty out there, but we never really put the effort in to designing that little patio. we just threw extra chairs out there and let it get dirty and then never sat there (bummer). we went with all (been a huge fan of them for a long time now) they have such stylish and reasonably priced , i was really impressed!

now we enjoy our cappuccinos out there in the morning, i like to meditate/read and take in the views, and dinner outside is always awesome here in LA. i want to get some more candles and string lights out there (and maybe a fire pit), but this refresh is amazing and got us spending way more time outside.

A FAVORITE COOKBOOK

my aunt gifted me the last year and it has quickly become one of my favorites. it’s really geared towards the home cook, people like me who want to make delicious meals but don’t want anything too fussy or over the top. you can tell that she really tested and refined all of the recipes and everything i’ve made has been excellent including this eggplant dish we’re sharing today. i highly recommend the cookbook. i’m pretty picky when it comes to which cookbooks i keep around, they really have to stand the test and deserve their space on my shelf and this one has passed with flying colors. – joanie

jessica calls it “new eggplant parm”. she has simplified the whole process and kept it to the basics, fried eggplant, cheese, sauce and that’s it. it’s simple and delicious!

what you’ll need: 
• 2 1/2 pounds eggplant
• salt + pepper
• 1/2 cup AP flour
• 2 eggs beaten
• 2 cups panko bread crumbs
• 3/4 cup grated parmigiano reggiano
• canola oil for frying

for the sauce: 

• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion
• 2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
• 2 pints cherry tomatoes
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano

to top:
• 1/2 lbs fresh mozz:rella
• flaky salt
• torn basil leafs

• cut eggplant into 1/2″ thick slices and season both sides with salt and pepper. put the flour, beaten eggs, and bread crumbs mixed with the grated cheese into 3 different containers. she recommends cake pans which work great if you have them.

• dip each piece of eggplant first in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the panko mixture pressing down lightly so the breading mixture sticks. place each piece on a baking sheet until you’ve coated all your eggplant.

• heat 1/2 each oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. set a wire rack over a baking sheet. when the oil is hot (you can test the oil by touch a piece of the eggplant to the oil with tongs and seeing if it sizzles) add the eggplant in a single layer. cooking until golden brown on each side, it took us about 5 minute per side but go by the color, not the time! once cooked place on the wire rack to cool. i lightly salted them while they were still warm but that’s optional, i’m just totally addicted to salt 🙂

• for the sauce, in a medium pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil, then add the onion and cook, stirring until translucent, about 6 minutes. add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute, then add the cherry tomatoes and cook until they begin to soften and pop, about 5 minutes. reduce the heat to low, add oregano and cook until the sauce thickens slightly, 5 minutes or more. season to taste with salt. Remove from the heat and transfer to a serving bowl.

• final step! preheat the broiler to high. transfer the eggplant slices to an oven safe platter or baking sheet. top each slice with mozzarella and broil until melted. Remove from the oven, sprinkles with flaky salt, garnish with torn basil and serve immediately with the sauce alongside or on top!

OUR WEDDING INVITE PROCESS

our wedding invitations was such a special process to us, so i can’t help but share the details with ya! i’ll admit that the invites were probably the most time consuming wedding detail and there might have been a moment there where i wanted to just send out a mass text “come to our wedding!” but i’m SO happy with the end results. it was worth the efforts (and the money)! i couldn’t have done it without the help of my dear friend  we had brainstorming meetings together, she guided me on the printing process, and even helped me assemble them. thank you aud!!

ok, now! let me breakdown our wedding invitations…

DESIGN PROCESS…

once i had my ring, my dress and the venue…the inspiration and theme began to come alive. i put together a mood board for all of our vendors (using my fave ) including the designers for our invitations. i wanted it to have this southern romance, old new orleans vibe with hints of art deco, Gatsby and old hollywood.

my friend sent me and i fell in love with it! we hired to design the artwork for our invite and he was a joy to work with. here is a few of his sketches in progress…
