I hope you all had a lovely weekend. My weekend was a mixture of busyness and calm. The busy part would bore you, so I won't go into that. What I will go into is the calm part, which is where this gorgeousness of a book comes in. I'll start off by saying that the lovely people at Kinfolk (they have to be lovely based on this book) have no idea who I am, so they don't know that I'm telling you about the book. But I have to tell you about it... 

I'm an avid reader of Kinfolk's quarterly magazine, so I was really excited when I heard they were going to publish a cookbook. I ordered it and it arrived on Friday afternoon. I woke up Saturday morning with a long to-do list for the day, but chose to start the day off in a calm way. No TV, no iPad or iPhone. Just me, The Kinfolk Table, and the various shades of morning light coming in my bedroom window. This book is full of three of my favorite things: beautiful photography, great writing and recipes that made me want to make revise the grocery list I already had. It's full of lovely essays about people from all over the world who take food and entertaining seriously, but think that both should be done simply- the idea being that simple food coupled with simple entertaining makes people feel their most comfortable. The book has stunning photographs of interesting designers, photographers, bloggers, newlyweds, couples and families along with essays that describe their history of food and how they now present it using the simplest forms of hospitality. It's 340 pages of heartwarming goodness that inspired me to get my camera out and capture the simple beauty of the morning light. It was the perfect way to start my day...

  3. Hi there! I just found your blog and am such a fan -- your photography is so beautiful! Look forward to reading along.

    And this book sounds so intriguing too... am always so tempted to overcomplicate things (thanks a lot Pinterest!) so the premise is definitely appealing. Will definitely check it out!

  4. I love the style of Kinfolk's photography-and the philosophy of keeping things simple. These pictures you took are gorgeous. Amazing light. Sounds like a perfect weekend morning! Are you going to make any of the recipes? Sweet potato biscuits sounds intriguing...
