Hey e’rbody! Jules and I are busy busy over here, trying to keep this kitchen moving along. I wanted to share a food post today but between work, spending time with the girls and working on the kitchen every night from the time the girls go to bed until Jules and I are on the verge of collapse, it just didn’t happen. But Labor Day is a huge grilling weekend, so I didn’t want it to go by without offering some sort of contribution to your festivities, and I’d like to do that in the form of a discount on my eCookbooks.
Use the code LABORDAY2015 during checkout when purchasing the bundle and you’ll get all 3 books for only $10 ($5 off)! Here’s just a few things the books will teach you to make:
Tacos Al Pastor (marinated, grilled spicy pork)
Grilled, BBQ Chicken Wings
The Dirty Burger (an item of my own design, and straight up the best burger I’ve ever had)
Each of the books focuses in on techniques and helping you be a more versatile cook, but I also include plenty of recipes to help get you started. So if you’re planning a BBQ on Monday, or anytime this weekend, you can now get all 3 of my books for only $10 (buy the bundle and use code LABORDAY2015 – code expires end of the day on Monday).
This weekend Jules and I will be finishing the backsplash, hanging our open shelves, sealing the countertops (with a little help from my main dude, Preston), and doing all of the finish work (window/door trim, toe kicks, cabinet fillers etc), so stay tuned because next week is gonna be INSANE! You’re gonna see some major progress.
Peace out, Internet friends and have a great weekend!
Is it still possible to purchase the ebooks?
I can’t wait to see your progress and to see what your open shelving looks like!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
