The afternoon light in the desert can be harsh, to say the least. It can also be really great for an impromptu shoot in celebration of Madewell's #denimmadewell contest. J helped me get these images of my favorite black jeans.
Avocado is one of my all-time favorite foods. It's up there with fresh figs, goat cheese and ice cream. I throw it in green smoothies, spread it on toast, use it in salads and eat it straight up. This creamy pasta is one of the best uses for avocado I have ever tasted. You can find the delicious recipe at Oh She Glows. Because I like to limit my gluten consumption, I cook this dish with quinoa & corn-based pasta. Make this tonight! You won't regret it.
