saturday style


Finding your style can be hard... But when you know, you just know! These two images just spoke to me... I love the simplicity and classic elements of each style. I love the cool monochromatic colors. Nothing fancy... But definitely eye catching!  

What's your style?

soft and chewy birthday cookies

 1 3/4 cup (220g) all-purpose flour*
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (110g) unsalted butter, room temp
  • 1 cup (210g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (110g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 20 golden Oreos

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  1. Chop up the Oreos into bite-sized pieces. I found it’s best to use a serrated knife (like a steak knife) to gently saw back and forth. This prevents the cookies from breaking apart.
  1. Whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  1. Using a hand or stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes on medium-high speed).
  1. Mix in the vanilla and egg.
  1. Mix the dry ingredients and right before the dough comes together, toss in the sprinkles and mix for a couple more seconds, just until they’re evenly distributed.
  1. Use a large cookie scoop to make 15-16 cookies. Place 5-6 cookies onto your baking sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes, or until the edges are a VERY light golden color.
  1. Right when you take them out of the oven, press a few Oreo pieces into the tops. Make sure it breaks through the surface and touches the doughy center. This helps them stick.
  1. Transfer to a cooling rack and allow them to cool for 15 minutes.
  1. Now dig in!

Ginger Chicken Lettuce Wraps 

with Tzatziki Sauce

 {recipe from... h e r e}


  • Large bowl
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Grill


For the Marinated Chicken:

  • 4 chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs cut up in chunks
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ginger powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp dill
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

For the Tzatziki:

  • 1/4 cup finely diced cucumbers
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon

Also needed:

  • Whole romaine lettuce leaves about 8-10
  • Sliced cucumbers about 30 slices


  • Combine soy sauce, ginger, olive oil, dill, and pepper in a bowl. Toss with chicken, cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to marinate.
  • While chicken is marinating, immerse bamboo skewers in water to soak to lessen the chance of burning the skewers when on the grill.
  • Finely dice 1/4 cup cucumbers.
  • Combine diced cucumbers with garlic, dill, salt, pepper, and yogurt. Stir gently to combine. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon and place in fridge until time to serve.
  • Heat grill to medium heat.
  • Slide approximately 5-7 pieces of chicken onto each skewer and place on the grill. The olive oil in the marinade eliminates the need to oil grill.
  • Cook for 5 minutes each side, until chicken is cooked through.
  • Arrange romaine leaves on a plate, top with sliced cucumbers, chicken, and tzatziki. Finally, garnish with sesame seeds.
