What's a girl to do when her favourite neighbour gifts her with a homegrown marrow?

Bake!

With a little help from Auntie Google, I discovered this recipe for Marrow and Pecan Cake, saving the marrow from potential compost doom for not knowing what to do with it!

This cake is yummy. It's so much like carrot cake you totally forget it's packed with green veggies {sneaky for the little people too!}.

Enjoy. xo, Alyssa.
i have the most awesome neighbour, have i mentioned that? she. is. awesome. a couple of days back, she asked if i would like a marrow harvested from her allotment and even though i hadn't a clue what i could do with one, i said yes. enter auntie google. what could i do with a marrow that my mr and littles might enjoy? i mean, it's kinda like a pretty huge courgette, no?! cake! did you say cake? oh yes! as soon as i discovered...

Oh yes, +Judy Heminsley. That would be a great substitute! Courgettes don't have 'string' and seeds in the centre {which you need to avoid with a Marrow} but the taste would be pretty much the same! Sounds delicious. xo

This girl!

After a couple of days mooching around as home bunnies, Edie and I headed to a real working farm yesterday afternoon. Best day. She was such sweet, happy company. And the goat…so cute!

The lovely +Ruth Garner of The Planned Adventure asked me a short while back to take part in a second blog hop, sharing why I write and a little on my writing process too {pictures first!}.

To sneak a peek at my second workspace and read more about what fuels my creative mama soul, pop over to the blog to read my latest post. Have a great week ahead!

xo, Alyssa.

a short while back, i was asked if i wanted to pick up a second blog hop baton from the super lovely ruth garner of the planned adventure. ruth is an awesome blogging buddy of mine and i thought it might be cool to dive a little deeper into the workings of agnes & miller, following her own awesome post here. we became fast friends over a shared love of pretty while attending one of emily quinton's wonderful makelight workshops, and i...

hello! i can't hardly believe we're nearly half way through summer break already. i totally plan to squeeze every warm ray out of the sun over the next few weeks, before hunkering down as the season creeps to autumn. last week in the kitchen i experimented a little with summer ice pops to help the littles handle the heat {so yum!} and then i got busy baking for my own papa. he's swinging into town with my mama this week, hound sitting ...

Step up!

Last year, back when I was working hard to fit my mama shaped self into a San Francisco startup shaped mould, I discovered Jessica Herrin and fast admired how she pulled off being both an awesome mama and a kick ass business woman too.

I wrote a little on the blog today about how my own goals later shifted. I'm also sharing an amazing poem Jessica wrote for her daughters which she shared just recently. It totally caught my mama heart.

as ceo of stella & dot, san francisco working mama jessica herrin caught my eye for the first time last year. i was mulling the feasibility of *leaning in* {like sheryl sandberg} to a san francisco opportunity of my own. i couldn't get enough of reading interviews with jessica {and other working mamas just like her}, searching for answers to how she pulled it off. soon enough i figured that leaning out, rather than leaning in, was t...

On Agnes & Miller today: a tutorial for sweet little terracotta pots decorated with gold leaf.

They were a real quick and easy way to thank our teachers for being awesome, though they’d be perfect for other celebrations too.

So so simple and super pretty!
this past week was edie's last ever week at nursery {i know! sobs!}. i decided to craft up a cute little something for her teachers, to thank them for being so very awesome this year. i wanted to whip up something a little whimsical, something super far from an easy store purchase of chocolates or wine. i also wanted it to have a little twist to it, and gifting a teeny plant represented how they'd helped edie grow into the little mis...
