Holiday Desserts from Cannelle et Vanille

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Recipes
I’m loving the chestnut holiday desserts that Aran of Cannelle et Vanilleis baking in her kitchen for the holidays. Aran and I quickly bonded when we worked on this event together. She is a gifted baker, amazing photographer and stylist, and she happens to be as sweet as sugar. Lucky me, I am in Aran’s area for the holidays and I get to see her again during the holiday break. Here are some of the…

Aran Goyoaga’s “Cannelle et Vanille” Portfolio Site

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions
I recently had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Aran Goyoaga, the very talented food stylist and photographer of Cannelle et Vanille blog.

To my delight, Aran was as sweet in person as her desserts look on screen. What’s sweeter is that we have developed a friendship from our collaboration, one of many friendships…

A Fizzy Drink that You’ll Devour: Sour Cherriade Recipe

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Recipes
Just yesterday, the First Department of the Appellate Division of NY unanimously ruled against Mayor Bloomberg’s Soda Ban by upholding a former NY Supreme Court ruling. All this soda talk got us thinking about soda in our office, especially since I’m a recovering Diet Coke drinker. I pulled out Andrew Schloss’ Homemade Soda book from my cookbook collection. This book has homemade soda recipes, often incorporating fresh fruits and herbs. I found a Sour Cherry…

Outrageously Ombre!

By: Amy Atlas, in Sweet Styling Tricks
We’re studying the Ombre trend today.  There is something about the monochromatic gradient of a single color that is outrageously chic. Ombre made a big comeback this year in fashion, especially after Prada launched its Ombre handbag collection.  We’ve seen the Ombre movement move to the dessert and party styling world as well, and our favorite spotting is that gorgeous Maggie Austin Ombre cake above!  If you can’t find Ombre party products out there, not…
