As a lover of all things black and white and simple, the grid print (also referred to this season as windowpane or even “the new plaid”) struck a cord with me immediately. It has become my favorite print to see right now and is being produced at rapid speed in dresses, sweaters, and especially pants. It’s everywhere and I don’t mind.

While the web was filling up with photos from Spring 2014 Fashion Week collections and their surrounding glamour, I wanted to see the details. Designers added intriguing touches and elements of interest with the hair styles, coordinating accessories and my favorite — nail art.

A little while ago I became obsessed with food blogs, especially those with beautiful photography. There are SO many great ones out there and every now and then I’d like to highlight a few of my favorites. Cooking is one form of creating that I find very rewarding (because I love to eat!) and these blogs inspire me to do it more often.
Here are just a few of my food blog picks for this week plus the recipes that caught my eye.
