The Link Up: The New Cookbook Emily Is Cooking From This Week, The Chic Sweatshirt Ryann Won’t Take Off, And A Riveting Article About Estate Sales

Week one down and what a week it was. We just love all of you so much and you made this first week back pretty darn great. Lots more fun posts this month so buckle up:) We hope you had a nice week back too, made some resolutions if you wanted, and now are relaxing into your Sunday. We’ve got some great links that we think will only make it better…

This week’s house tour is special. From the original delft tiles around the fireplaces to the bright jewel tones, to the stunning art, it’s simple a joy to look at. We love how Sophie Ashby plays with elements of EEG but has a cleaner and more modern take. Plus how sweetly her husband talks about her talent is the best. Please go enjoy!

From Emily: I storied about this over break, but this cookbook Whole Food Cooking Every Day by Amy Chaplin is essential for those of us wanting to cook seasonal vegetables in an ACTUALLY DELICIOUS WAY. And no, it’s not just soup. Inside there is a full breakdown of what vegetables should be steamed for how long, and lots of ‘base sauces’ with ways to build on them. Bowls, salads, soups, casseroles, and full meals. I DM’d the author and said “I’ve never read such approachable expertise in a voice, and as a relatively new home cook, I feel super empowered to try”. It’s full of science but again, in an approachable way. If you liked Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat by Samin Nosrat (which I’m re-reading now) you’ll LOVE THIS. My favorite recipes to try this weekend are the veggie bakes with cauliflower crusts on top (because yes, even I get sit of soups but this is still one pan!). YUM.

From Jess: To be fair I love musical theatre but I have watched this TikTok an unspeakable amount of times and I get happy emotional every time.

Also From Jess: Just reordered my favorite candle and thought it was a nice reminder that it’s ok to get yourself that makes you feel good inside.

From Ryann: It’s 2022 but I am not retiring sweats anytime soon. For Christmas, my fiance bought me this sweatsuit by Gil Rodriguez and it’s my new favorite outfit. Wanting to add more matching sets to my wardrobe, I looked for another version and found this half zip sweater and these sweats that are collectively over 50% off! I write to you as I am wearing them and cannot get over how comfortable I am right now.

From Caitlin: Obsessed with this piece about estate sales in the New Yorker this week. Like, did you know that antiquing is a relatively recent phenomenon that really took a hold in the 1920s? The whole thing is a familiar, fun, educational read for anyone who’s ever found themselves plunking down a $20 for something pulled off a table in a total stranger’s living room.

From Mallory: Have you listened to the Hunker Home design podcast yet?? I just started it and so far I’m a big fan…I also love listening to the Domino one, Design Time. Do you guys listen to a lot of design podcasts?? I feel like a ton have been coming out recently so I’m newly getting into them (it’s kind of hard to listen to people talk about stuff thats visual so it makes sense why they rolled out slowly, but so far I’ve loved getting to learn more about the designers lives…) Anyway I’d love your recs!

Hope you having fun diving in and see y’all tomorrow xx

I’ve been disappointed by most home design podcasts. And I suppose it’s because the medium is a poor fit with a field that is heavily visual. So too often, the podcasts end up talking about how the designer became successful or developed a business model, neither of which is why I was listening. I don’t care how you got your start or how you expanded your business. I’m looking for ideas on home design!

That canopy bed on the house tour! I assume that’s bespoke? Stunning. What little person wouldn’t want that?

Jess, have you seen West Side Story yet? I got emotional at the very first scene! The dancing, the singing, the sets!!! It is SO well done and I loved it. I do giggle a little when they’re supposed to be super tough and they’re singing and leaping all over the place, but I highly recommend it if you haven’t seen it yet.

I love that home! But is it (or her other work https://studioashby.com/) EEG? Maybe more “english ethnic boho”. Or is that the same style?

Ask Alice is a great design podcast! It’s hosted by the creators of Alice Lane Interiors. It actually talks about… you know… design, as opposed to the business of design. A fun listen! Excited to check out the Hunker Home one.

I looked for it and it’s actually called “Dear Alice” (ask alice was a counseling podcast)

I’m not even a musical theatre person, I’ve never seen wicked, but I loved watching that tik tok. Emotions are amazing…

Young House Love Has (Had) a Podcast is a good one. They have a lot of back episodes, although they’re not really putting out new ones. Also A Beautiful Mess podcast.

The chatty design podcasts are the best, in my opinion, where it’s two people who know each other well instead of one person interviewing a stranger. I bet the EHD team would have an entertaining podcast!

Another great cookbook is Weekday Vegetarians. So many great recipes and techniques that put veggies / plant-based protein front & center and work for quick family dinners. https://bookshop.org/books/the-weekday-vegetarians-100-recipes-and-a-real-life-plan-for-eating-less-meat-a-cookbook/9780593138748?gclid=CjwKCAiArOqOBhBmEiwAsgeLmYag0NpEaMoP0jPdzRKty0ksuLTP3YoZS_5YGhwVPyDd4MXbd8NsQhoCDgkQAvD_BwE

The colors are gorgeous but EEG is so not for me, it just looks like too much stuff and I can’t make sense of it. Funny how we all react differently to spaces and pics. Whole Cooking is a really good cookbook!

Highly recommend The Great Indoors podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-great-indoors/id1437834171, two English designers with very contrasting tastes and opinions.

I took a look at the candle and read the description to my husband, “what do you think ‘summer mischief on the fire escape’ smells like? His answer was “cat pee and garbage?” I think I’ll order the candle now just to see if orange blossom and sandalwood remind me of summers in Chicago in any way 🙂 Thank you Jess!

Thank you, Jess, for that TicTok video. I love Broadway musicals, as well, and I’ve seen Wicked a number of times. I’m not on TicTok, but I appreciate this video a lot. It made me strangely emotional.

For another vegetable cookery cookbook from a renowned Portland chef try Six Seasons.

Ditto that. I’ve cooked more from Six Seasons than any other cookbook…and I have a LOT of cookbooks! I’ve also given it to about a dozen friends who regularly text me with photos of what they’ve cooked from the book. I’m just getting started with his Grains for Every Season and hope it will be just as good.

Best cookbook ever! Like Sheila, I cook from this one more than any other. The cabbage farro soup and burst tomato pasta are my faves. Its one of the only cookbooks I have that allows me to not hit the grocery store. I work for a farmer at my local farmers market so I get all my veggies from them. Its so helpful to have a cookbook that allows you to cook/shop seasonally. It’s also spoiled me since I was reading a cookbook the other day and one of the sounds tasty recipes had heirloom tomatoes, asparagus, and sweet potatoes in it… ummmm, all 3 of those are at the market at different times.

Sheila, Grains forEvery Season is great. Loads of good recipes in there!

Electroencephalogram, of course! I’m kidding, obviously, but adding my request to please define acronyms so we don’t have to guess!

Eccentric English Granny – which I think is sort of an EHD term since I haven’t seen it elsewhere, so definitely a deep cut if you don’t carefully read every EHD blog post 🙂

Hi Jas, EstateSales.Net! It’s the best and can turn into quite the hobby. I actually wrote an article about using the site on my own blog this week, if you’d like to see: https://hellofromliz.com/estatesalesnet/. Hope this helps!

Can someone explain how and why “whole food cooking” excludes dairy and gluten? I went to check out the bookbook and was taken aback. Those seem like wonderful, nutritious whole foods! How odd. And it seems so niche – why do people who are not gluten intolerant (a real but relatively small population) want to cook gluten free? Or dairy free if you are not lactose intolerant or vegan? My husband, who is lactose intolerant, just pops some pills and eats dairy as well. But this association that seems to exist between dairy and gluten not being “good” for you seems badly “woo” and antiscience and I hate it. These totally made up “health” bullshit to make people’s lives harder. I hope with her move out of LA Emily might back away from some of this nonsense woo she dabbles in occasionally. Speaking of podcasts, Maintenance Phase takes some of these fads down in a very comprehensive way.
Thank you for the link up, overall it’s lovely!

Yeah, the idea of gluten and dairy not being part of a whole foods diet is bizarre to me.
