TGI Piedays

One of my closest friends and I are working on a blog to celebrate both our love of Fridays and pie. It’s called TGI Piedays—she plans out and develops the recipes, I take the photos and add the lettering. This way, we both get to practice our favorite things (and I get to eat too much pie).

How to Build a DIY Vertical Garden

Vertical gardens, really? This weekend I went on the Modern Architecture tour of homes here in Atlanta—after the 6th or 7th house, they were starting to look pretty identical; sharp angles, grayish colors, stone floors, and lots of glass. One feature caught my attention, however—so many of them had vertical gardens or living roofs. I was jealous. Why should these people have them and not me? Sure, they probably hired a landscaper to make the most perfect garden, but, I can have this too if I make it myself.

Teaching Pasta Classes at Preserving Place

I recently taught my very first pasta-making class at Preserving Place here in Atlanta. I’ve taught friends one-on-one before, and of course I have my Skillshare class, but teaching people in real life was such a thrill.

Making Dumplings by Hand

A few years ago Alyssa and I went to a dumpling-making class in Athens—the two of us and about ten other people stood around a commercial kitchen table while a guy taught us how to mix the filling, roll out the wrappers, stuff, and seal. 12 people each making dumplings at once yielded far too many for anyone to eat, but they were just too delicious to quit.

Handmade Pasta: My Skillshare Class is Live!

 

Finally, my dream of being an instructor on Skillshare has come true! Last weekend I wrote, filmed, performed in, and edited my very own twenty-minute class on how to make, you guessed it, handmade pasta. I used two DSLR cameras and my iPhone as a mic, placed out of frame and then synced up the audio later. Continue reading

Trying out the Tube Pasta Machine

I finally got to take my new Christmas present for a ride this weekend (after a very scary trip to the emergency vet with my dog), and make some tube pasta—that’s right, penne, rigatoni, buccatini, the works. Whenever I’m trying out a new tool, I like to find YouTube videos of someone else using the thing first. I learn little nuances of using the machine without having to tinker with it myself, and I have a better idea of how it should work. Surprisingly, considering this is the internet, I couldn’t find any videos of people using this specific machine—I think I may have to make my own!

10 Tips for Surviving a Whole30, or Paleo Diet

Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here! I’m Sarah, a graphic designer based out of Atlanta. When you’ve finished reading this post, take a look around at my work and say hi!

As you may have noticed by now from my Twitter and Instagram, I’ve been eating Paleo/Whole30 since the beginning of August. Most of my posts have been related to the foods I miss, and the things I can’t wait to eat when I’m done (on Labor Day).

The Paleo diet is inspired by what the early humans ate before we invented agriculture.That is, the hunter/gatherer diet. To eat “Paleo,” you’re only supposed to eat what the hunter/gatherers had access to—meats, vegetables, fruits. You are allowed no sugar, no dairy or legumes, breads, grains, or other types of carbs. Absolutely no overly processed foods that barely resemble the food they were supposed to be. Continue reading
