The Easiest “Fancy” Bread

The Easiest Fancy Bread

Hey everyone! I’m popping in to share my latest obsession: this bread. I have to start off saying that in no way am I a baker. You might even remember when I made it a goal to learn how to make a decent cake which I feel like is fairly decent proof that I’m not always amazing in the kitchen. But this bread is foolproof. I’ve made it multiple times now and it’s always turned out beautifully, which for me is probably a first in regards to anything I’ve ever attempted to bake. It’s truly a testament to the ridiculous easiness of the recipe which is why I had to share it. This recipe is for you, all my timid baker friends (as well as my generally lazy friends too).

No Knead Fancy Bread

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp dry active yeast
  • 11/2 cups of lukewarm water
  • Swirl of olive oil

Prep: 12-24 hours before baking

Mix flour, yeast, and salt in a medium sized mixing bowl then add the lukewarm water. Mix until fully combined. Swirl just a bit of olive oil on the top of the dough and cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Set aside at room temp for 12-24 hours. In a pinch, you can do as a little as 9 hours but it will result in a smaller loaf.

Baking:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Dust flour on the counter and place all the dough on the flour. Lightly cover the dough with flour (dough will be sticky) and fold in edges to create a round shape. Place dough into a deep baking dish (I use my dutch oven) and cover it with a lid or foil. Bake for 20 minutes then remove the lid and bake for another 20 minutes or until the top is a medium golden color. Then grab butter and eat.

If you’re more visual (or don’t trust me- it’s OK), Mark Bittman has a great 5 minute video showing you the whole step by step process.

It’s really that simple and it’s such a delicious and beautiful bread that would be perfect for entertaining or even as a gift- just wrap it in a simple white a red dish towel. Although I’m sure my friends and neighbors would a love a loaf, I’m probably going to sit here with the bread and butter and call this lunch!

Have a great day and happy baking!

Talk About It Tuesday: Instant Cameras

 

Polaroid Camer

Let’s take a step back in time and remember when cameras and cell phones were separate, before Instagram, and people took polaroids for fun. How many of you remember taking selfies with your friends before selfies were even a thing? Then remember the day they announced they’d no longer be making the film back in 2008? Sadness abounded but we were soon mesmerized with our shiny new iPhones and forgot all about our former friend.

Well now it’s totally a thing again. I guess enough people out there didn’t forget about their previous Polaroid fun because they’re back and better than ever.They definitely look a little more modern these days (or maybe just more like bubbles) but the concept is pretty much the same. There are new fun settings, higher quality photos, and better designs. They’re seeing a huge comeback at weddings and other events and even bloggers like DesignForMankind are starting to use them for various projects.

Fuji Film Instax

So my question today is: Would you consider taking a nostalgic stroll down memory lane with one of these instant cameras? Do you think that they’re a fun, but antiquated toy or would you put one to good use? Check them out HERE– could be a fun gift!


Falling Water- Frank Lloyd Wright

Hey guys. I’ve really sucked at posting lately. I could give you the typical excuse that I’ve been busy but who wants to hear excuses? Yeah, exactly. Anyway, I went to visit my in laws this past weekend out in western Maryland and has the chance to go and check out what’s arguably Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous work.

Black and White Falling Water

We mostly went because it’s the most famous thing out that way and it’s on the husband’s bucket list. I think we’ve talked about how he loves all things modern and especially anything that could be classified as mid century so this was pretty much his heaven. And doesn’t he look so handsome in that picture? Still pinching myself that he’s mine. Oh, and the house was pretty too. Can you call Frank Lloyd Wright’s work pretty? I’m not quite sure but oh well.

Falling Water in Autumn I wish I had brought my camera on this trip because my iPhone photo definitely didn’t capture all of the beauty of the house and it’s environs. I also wish that we could have taken the in-depth tour but you have to book far in advance and we went kind of on a whim and tours were all sold out. Turns out over 1,000 people toured the house that day which is pretty nuts when you realize it’s about 2 or more hours from any major city. There’s no photos allowed inside which is a shame because it looks like this:

Falling water Interior

 

Falling Water 3

Fallingwater-sitting-area

It’s amazing and was painstakingly curated by Wright himself, supposedly down to the last vase. The was cost over $150k back in 1936- expensive and truly before it’s time. I’ve compiled some cheaper but still modern and fabulous finds that have a similar look and feel because having modern pieces shouldn’t always cost an arm and a leg.

Falling Water Inspiration

1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9

So have any of you been out to Falling Water? Now that I’ve been to this one, I’m thinking we need to head to Chicago to see more of his work. Any other Frank Lloyd Wright homes that you love? And those wood chairs are from Target- can you believe it? I might have to pick some up for the husband’s office.

Have a great day!

Bedroom Updates and Nate Berkus Crush

So this weekend I had my casual and cozy housewarming party. I thought about taking pictures but I really wanted to be present so alas, you’ll just have to imagine how fabulous it was. Hint: not that fab, mostly just fun. Anyway, I needed to make some changes to my master bedroom before I let anyone see it because it looked like this:

Before Master Bedroom

Not the absolute worst picture you’ve ever seen but definitely sterile, boring, and outdated. It’s hard to tell in this photo but the walls were a matte purple which again, wasn’t completely awful but wasn’t good either. And the furniture and accessories just blended into the walls and got lost. So I decided to do something crazy and paint the walls slate. In a gloss. I don’t have any “during” pictures because I don’t wear camera appropriate clothes while painting and the Internet really doesn’t need to see THAT much of me. Plus, who knows if I’ll try to do something of merit one day or run for office and then *BAM* this post comes back to haunt me.

But back to the room, we (and I did get husband’s approval) bought the one-coat-can’t-change-your-mind paint from Behr and got to work. And now our room looks like this:

 

P1020261

Here’s the same angle as the “before” picture:

 

P1020266

And my little afternoon reading nook.

Bedroom After 3

Doesn’t that just feel so much better??? I love going to bed now because it feels so intimate and cozy. By no means are we done, or even half way done with this room because we need to put more art on the walls, change out the ceiling fan, buy a more modern bed and end tables, and of course add about a million more pillows BUT even with that mile long list of changes, I feel like the room is finally at a place where I can stop and breathe and decorate more slowly and intentionally.

Now just because I’m taking my time doesn’t mean I haven’t been looking around. I’ve got to tell you that in my online and in-store wanderings, Nate Berkus’ line is killing it this season. Here’s a few things that I’ve had my eye on:

Nate Berkus New Line

1/2/3/4/5/6

All of them are from his new line minus the bed (Ethan Allen) and they are fabulous and crazy inexpensive compared to similar finds. As you’ve probably already noticed, I already bought the throw and it’s wonderfully soft and less than $20. The throw or the marble ring holder would be great Christmas gifts because we’re only 8 weeks out. #Yikes!

So what are your thoughts on the new dark color? Fab or drab? And anyone else have a design crush on Nate Berkus?

-Katy

 


Another Reason to Love Target

Liberty Hardware Pulls

If you’ve read my blog at all you know that I have a crazy love for Target. We’re focusing on getting the repainted cabinets up and I’ve been scouring the web for beautiful glass pulls. Liberty makes the Victorian glass pulls above and quite a few stores sell them. What makes Target awesome is that their pricing on these (and other) items. Home Depot carries these pulls for $6.99 each while Target sells them for $5.69 each. Add on the Target’s 10% discount with your Red card and you just saved over $1.50 on EACH ONE. Buying just ten of these (which happens to be how many I need) saves you over $15. It’s not a million bucks but it’s basically like getting three for free! When you’re desperately trying to bring your home out of the late 60’s, you’ll take any savings you can get!

Glass Pulls

Don’t you love how they look here? The painted drawer blog refinished her drawers as well and the glass knobs look gorgeous!

The glass knobs and pretty traditional feeling and my husband is only now warming up to them. What’s your take- love’em or leave’em? And have you had similar experiences with saving cash by shopping at Target? I’d love to hear any deals you’ve scored!

Look For Less: Marble Lamps

Well, I think most of you have probably heard enough about Ireland for the next little while so I’ll cease with all things Emerald Isle for the time being, but if you have any questions about anything else trip-wise, send me a message. Thanks for all your sweet comments and I hope all of you who’ve asked about the trip get to make it out there! But until then, let’s talk about lighting.

You can ask my husband and he’ll verify that I have ‘small’ obsession with lighting. I also have a thing for marble so marble lamps are pretty much pure heaven to me. I’ve had my eyes on a few but haven’t broken down and purchased one and now I’m so glad I haven’t. I was strolling around Target today and came across their new beautiful marble lamp.

Marble Lamp Look For Less

Lamp 1, Lamp 2

The lamp on the right is basically a third(!) of the price of the one on the left and their styles are so similar and classic. Now if only I could convince the husband that I need new marble lamps for the bedroom’s new paint…

Have a great hump day and wish me luck!

How to Pack for Europe in the Fall & Giveaway!

 

Katy at Cliffs of MoherI’ve had quite a few people ask what I brought to Ireland (and London and Pairs last year) and how I managed to pack everything. My secret is packing light, even with the cooler temps they have in Fall. It’s totally doable and you don’t have to look like a tourist wearing the same thing every day. I mean, there are enough badly dressed American tourists out there, don’t be one of them.

Keep Jewelry SimpleTravel Jewelry When you’re traveling, especially internationally, I think it’s important to look nice while not making yourself a target and this means going easy on the jewelry. Each trip I pick out one pair of gold earrings and a pair of white gold earrings, just to make sure I have something that will go with each outfit. I try to make sure one pair are interesting studs and the other are dangly but that’s just my personal preference. Our trip last year I brought multiple necklaces and they all ended up getting tangled and never worn. This trip I brought one necklace that I never took off which had both gold and white gold and would match whatever I chose to wear that day. It made getting dressed so much faster which is great- you don’t want to waste time in the hotel when you could be out exploring!

Limit Your Outerwear Trench Coat and Scarves If I had to list one item I wore almost every single day, it would be my trench coat. It’s timeless, water proof, great for windy climates and goes with everything! When I bought mine I made sure to buy one that had black lining so that it tied in with my black outfits as well.

I knew that Ireland would be windy so I made sure to bring scarves. Instead of bringing one to match every single outfit, I picked one neutral one and one that was more fun. This allowed me a little more variation without taking up tons of room in my bag.

4. Buy Comfortable (and Pretty) Shoes

Kork Ease Holmes Booties These shoes are amazing and saved me. I hadn’t even heard of Kork Ease shoes until I hit up Nordstrom last minute in complete desperation, trying to find attractive yet comfortable black shoes. They took me through cobbled streets and into fancy receptions at the Guinness distillery. They’re so easy to dress up or down and look great with jeans, leggings, and dresses. Throw in that they’re all leather and under $150 and it makes them one of my best buys this year.

Bring a Large Travel Purse

Large Travel Purse This is a lesson learned the hard way. Last year I brought my brand new blush colored purse for our two week travel in Europe. It got so grimy and dirty and after that trip it was never the same. This year I emptied out my work bag and took it along and it pretty much changed my life. Having a larger and more durable bag meant I could stuff in my camera, a scarf, maps, water and snacks so that we weren’t trying to carry those items separately. I know that Michael Kors isn’t at the height of popularity right now but the bag was perfect for our needs. It looked classy enough while being extremely useful and sturdy and the textured leather was great when things got a little rainy, which it tends to do in the Emerald Isle. I loved this bag and recommend it to anyone doing any amount of traveling.

Simple Skincare and Scents

Exfolikate and Daisy Dream

I’m not one of those girls who has a signature scent but I do seem to love almost everything by Marc Jacobs. This year I chose his Daisy Dream Roller and wore it every day. I usually kept it in my purse for times when I needed to freshen up after a long day. So many things about Europe are beautiful but street grime is a real thing. Pack some perfume to dab on before dinner and you’ll feel so much more refreshed!

The biggest travel game changer for me though, has to be Kate Somerville’s Exfolikate. Travel itself wreaks enough havoc on my skin but add traveling to a country where they serve chips (read: fries) with everything and you have a recipe for disastrous complexion. But Kate and her miracle exfoliator saved me last year in London and I’ve been using it at least weekly ever since. It’s fairly all natural but it works so well, I might even care if it wasn’t. It’s gentle but effective enough that I usually only end up using it every other day on trips.

I love Exfolikate so much that I thought I’d pick up a travel sized version to giveaway to one amazing reader!

The Prettiest Part Of Ireland: 7 Things To Do On The Western Coast

Irish Castle

I loved Ireland as a whole and Dublin was beautiful but ladies and gents, I’m pretty sure the western coast is what heaven will look like. Not only does the landscape rival anywhere else in the world but there are also castles EVERYWHERE. And all kinds. And all ages. So my list of 7 Things To Do On The Western Coast absolutely has to start with a castle visit.

  1. King John’s Castle in Limerick

King John's Castle Limerick Ireland

This castle, nestled right along the river in Limerick, was built due to a decree from King John the 1st. Yes, that King John who was made fun of mercilessly in Disney’s Robin Hood. I may or may not have been softly singing “Too late to be known as John the first, he’s sure to be known as John the Worst! A pox upon the phony King of England!” throughout the entire tour. Despite my annoying singing, we loved the tour and the view from the top of the tower was breathtaking!

View from King John's Castle Limerick

Ridiculous, right? The admission ticket was worth this view alone! And during the tour we also learned that before the English came a messed around in Ireland, ladies had rights. I loved this:

Irish Feminism It was awesome and well worth the 2.5 hour drive from Dublin. It’s on the way to many of the other great things we did on the western coast but while the castle and river are charming, learn from our lesson and don’t stay the night in Limerick.

TIP: If you drive 10 minutes SW, you’ll come to a darling little town named, Adare. Stay there because it’s amazingly beautiful and far less sketchy. Oh and you can see beautiful thatched roof houses!

Irish Thatched Roof House

2. Cliffs of Moher

P1010696

If we had to pick one thing about our trip that we loved the most, it might be taking the day to see the cliffs. They are breathtakingly beautiful and honestly, no picture that I post could ever do them justice. Visiting the cliffs made me realize why Ireland is called “The Emerald Isle” because everything is so verdant. And because it wouldn’t be Ireland without a castle, they even have a tower on one of the cliffs for an even better view. Built in the mid 1800’s it’s not really considered a castle because of its newness (which blows my American mind).

Castle Tower at Cliffs of Moher

Cliffs of Moher Outfit

TIP: Make sure to hike all the way to right, the view is more than worth it! To the left, there’s a watch tower built back during the Napoleonic war. It seems like it’s not that far but we hiked for well over an hour to and ended up turning around because of the wind and rain. It’s pretty windy and rainy there most of the year and the trail out to it was muddy, rugged and long. Skip the outer left trail and spend time watching the puffins dive into the ocean!

3. Stay at Ballyseede Castle

Ballyseede Castle Hotel

Staying at Ballyseede castle is probably on the list of top ten favorite vacation experiences ever. Located near Tralee, this tucked away castle is one of the more romantic places we’ve ever stayed! The outside is beautiful but the inside is exquisite.

Ballyseede Castle Sitting Room

Ballyseede Dining Room

Ballyseede Staircases

The grounds were also spectacular and I can totally understand why they have on average two weddings a week there.

Ballyseede Castle Grounds

TIP: Make sure you make it down in time for breakfast! It’s included when you book your room and honestly, it’s amazing. I’m still dreaming about those pancakes! The staff is amazing and everything is delicious! Honestly, just go ahead and book your room now. It was that great.

Ballyseede Breakfast

4. Ross Castle in Killarney

P1020045

What made this castle awesome is that it’s one of the older “tower castles” in Ireland. Before the English came and conquered, minor chieftains built these castles all over the country and they estimate there are over 3,500 of them today in various states of decay. This one was recently restored and showcased the living conditions in Ireland during the 1500’s. It’s also located in Ireland’s only national forest so the scenery is spectacular!

Killarney

TIP: Make sure to bring cash as they do not take any cards!

5. Muckross Manor House

Muckross Manor House

This beautiful manor house is also tucked into the national forest and is worth the drive from Killarney. The house itself is beautiful and the inside is dazzling yet elegant (sorry, again no picutures allowed) and the surrounding gardens were just as lovely.

Muckross Garden

Muckross Gardens

TIP: Skip the village tour. We paid extra for it and then like others, didn’t have time to actually see any of it.

6. Torc Waterfall

Torc Waterfall

This place is so gorgeous, I’m not entirely sure why some visitor skip it. It’s a two minute drive from Muckross house and only another two minute walk to the falls. This is another place that pictures can do no justice. To say that it’s beautiful is to say that the sun is hot. Complete understatement. The walk through the forest to get there feels almost magical, like you’re in a fairytale and a giant might pop out at any moment.

Torc Waterfall Park

TIP: The forest and falls are particularly dark so bring a camera that works well in low lighting if you want any chance of capturing some of the magic. Also, stay at least one night in Killarney. It’s a charming town and we loved every minute!

7. Rock of Cashel

P1020231

Rock of Cashel

One of Ireland’s most famous castles, the Rock of Cashel, is actually not technically a castle at all for some reason. This huge “rock” as the locals call it, was once a tower castle and a cathedral. It’s one of the most famous ruins in Ireland and one of the largest as well. The grave yards are also beautiful and filled with Celtic crosses and statues, some dating back over 500 years!

Rock of Cashel Cross

Entrance fee to the rock also gains you entrance to a 14th century abbey ruin that is located down the hill. The magnificnece of that ruin cannot be put into words and what’s crazy is there is no guard or guide. You simply just walk across the field and enter the gate and you’re there, allowed to touch and photograph walls built by Franciscan monks almost 700 years ago.

Abby Ruin Abby Ruin

I took the following pictures from the abbey ruins to give you some perspective of how close the abbey is to the rock. It completely blows my mind that these two humungous structures would be so close to each other and for a period time, operating and being sustained by the same rural community.

Rock of Cashel from Abby Ruin TIP: If you spend 15 euros in the small town of Cashel you can get free tickets to the Rock of Cashel and the abbey. Grab lunch at a local pub and ask for the tickets when you pay. We ate a great lunch in town and saved 20 euros on admission!

So there’s my top 7 things to do on Ireland’s west coast. I loved the countryside far more than I could have imagined and the sights were fantastic. While I’m mostly glad that I’m back home in Austin, part of me wishes I had another month or two to explore more of Ireland’s majestic countryside. Anyone been over to the Emerald Isle and loved it? What did you see?

Thanks for letting me relive this magical trip!

Traveling Ireland: Dublin Part II

Molly Malone Statue Dublin

I promise to try and keep this post short and sweet as I finish up talking about some of the must-sees in Dublin. Much like Austin, Dublin has a great art scene and awesome statues that reflect their culture and traditions. Above is the Molly Malone statue which was constructed after a popular drinking song. You’ll notice that her chest is more worn than other parts of the statue because apparently it’s good luck to rub her bosom. Yes, it’s incredibly tacky, and no, we didn’t do it. Nevertheless, the song (and statue) are such a part of the heritage that it’s worth checking out.

Not every statue we saw was this funny and light hearted. Along the river, the city has set up a beautiful memorial to those homeless and downtrodden, both past and present.

Dublin Homeless Statue

P1010278

I probably should have taken some photos of the entire installation but the faces on these two completely captured me. Poverty has been a major issue various times during the history of the country and I appreciated how instead of sweeping it under the rug, they memorialized those who have and do suffer greatly in order to bring awareness.

Dublin River While you’re down there, make sure to take some time in the new tech section of the city. It’s beautiful and the bridges and ship museums are worth taking time for.

P1010269

And speaking of museums, you pretty much have to go to their national museums. You’ll need to carve out at least half of a day to see most of them and they’re more than worth the time. Plus, they’re pretty much all located in the same area and are FREE! They have beautiful Celtic gold, early Christian artifacts, amazingly preserved mummies and beautiful modern art.

 

Ireland Museum District

Gold bracelet in Dublin Archeology Musuem

Irish Mummy

Faith and Hope Sculpture In Dublin Museum The last thing every traveler should see is Trinity College Library. The ticket price might seem steep at 10 euros but you get to see the famous Book of Kells (sorry, no photos were allowed) and this amazingly gorgeous library:

Trinity College Library

P1010485

I want you all to know that I’ve practiced great restraint by not posting a million and a half pictures and rambling on and on about the city. It’s beautiful and lovely and you really must make it out there yourself. I’ll end this post with a pictures of the hubs and me on the river because well, he’s just so dang cute!

P1010249

Have a great week and check back Monday for my post on my favorite part of Ireland!

Traveling Ireland: Dublin Part I

P1010117

Hey guys! I know it’s been awhile but I needed to take a break from things and just really enjoy Ireland. It was pretty much a life long dream come true to go and I decided that I wanted to focus on the trip and really take it all in. And it was refreshing and beautiful. More than beautiful, really. So beautiful that I’m going to break up the trip into two posts because of pictures. And while we’re talking about pictures, I bought a new camera because you don’t do on a trip like this and rely on iPhone pictures.

Victorian Dublin Ireland

So we spent the first few days in Dublin, the capital and it was beautiful! It’s not as big as either of us expected with only about a million people in it. What it lacked in size, it made up for in friendliness and beauty. The first night we stayed at an AirBNB up in the NW part of the city which was a charming area filled with Victorian area townhouses. Pretty much every street looked like the picture above. We loved the red brick against the green foliage. It was extremely quiet and picturesque- totally a neighborhood I would think about living in.

Dublin Cathedral

Oh and every little area has a beautiful and HUGE cathedral in it. This one, St Peter’s, was like a 5 minute walk out the front door. We ended up staying in 3 neighborhoods in Dublin and this one was my favorite by far. Even though we were tucked away a bit, a twenty minute walk put you smack dab in the middle of the city. And since we’re on the subject of walking, I feel like I need to give everyone some advice on transportation. DO NOT buy their Leap cards for the bus system. They take 48 hours to activate (no lie), they don’t make any stops in sightseeing areas, and if there’s two of you, it’s probably cheaper to take a cab. What I will recommend is buying one of these:

Dublin Green Bus Tour Ticket

The green sightseeing busses are a great way to see the town and are actually cheaper than buying a city bus pass. The hop on and off feature was amazing for seeing things and even just getting around. One of the husband’s coworkers gave me her’s since she didn’t have time to use it. Changed my life as far as a getting around town and the bus drivers sing Irish drinking songs, so I’m not sure what more I could have wanted. Oh and I’d say only about 60% of places take cash so make sure you’ve always got plenty of cash.

Dublin Historical Architecture

Even if you decide to take cabs or buses most places, make sure that you take time to walk around and really see the city. Dublin has so many historical places that only a fraction of them make it on the bus tours. We would have missed seeing this gorgeous building if we hadn’t decided to walk to the pub one night instead of catching a cab. And speaking of pubs, they’re everywhere and the food was actually pretty decent on average. We ate a quite a few of them and loved watching rugby matches with locals. It’s a definite must-do while you’re there, just make sure that you check when they’re open. We missed getting into the beauty because we wanted to eat a little too early.

O'Neals Pub Dublin Ireland

One of the most interesting, fun, beautiful places in Dublin is Dublin Castle. Pay the extra few euros and take the longer guided tour. You get access to more parts of the castle and you’ll learn awesome things about the beginning of Dublin, vikings, Irish independence, etc.

Dublin Castle

It’s a gorgeous hodge-podge of buildings, some almost a thousand years old! The architecture lover in me loves the medieval tower in between the gothic cathedral and the victorian state hall. The cathedral was spectacular breathtaking and while not huge, its detail and craftsmanship rivaled some of the larger famous cathedrals in France.

P1010161

Dublin Castle Ceiling

Now I love me some America but our government halls have nothing on their state rooms. Waterford crystal chandeliers, thrones, magnificent paintings and fantastic design in every. single. room.

P1010184

Dublin Castle Architecture Inaugural Hall Dublin Castle

This painting, kind of tucked out of the way as you exited the castle was probably my favorite. It so perfectly depicted the history and struggle of the Irish Republic. It’s beauty was just so haunting and my picture of it really doesn’t do it any justice.

P1010207

We wandered into St Steven’s Green afterwards and to say it was magical feels like a bit of an understatement. It’s a perfect place to take a walk and enjoy a beautiful evening.

 

P1010231 It’s located RIGHT next to Grafton street, Dublin’s main shopping center, but once you entered the park, it was magnificently quiet and serene.

P1010234

It was the best way to end our first full day in Ireland. I wish I could fit in our entire time in Dublin into one post but honestly, there was no way that I was going to be able to fit even a quarter of the things we did into one post. I do feel like I kind of warned you with the title of the post being: Traveling Ireland: Dublin Part I. I promise that I’ll only post one more post about Dublin and try to cram in as much as possible.

Have a great hump day and with my luck wish this awful jet lag!
