Accidentally underbake first batch of snickerdoodles ➡️ Make snickerdoodle + vanilla chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches. With obligatory sprinkles for Instagram karma. P.S. I ate cookies for breakfast. 🍪🍪🍪

There's a dangerous amount of leftover funfetti cake in my fridge after Sunday hangs with @redhousevt. (I tried to pawn all the leftovers off on them, but they're wise to my tricks and always make me take a portion of my treats back with me now!) This was a trial run for a some upcoming baking escapades in the next couple weeks, and it was 💰🔥💯. Funfetti cake recipe via @mollyyeh + @food52. Rainbow chip frosting via @ashrod/Not Without Salt. (This is the best frosting in the world and I should not know how to make it myself...RIP skinny jeans.)

Things are all sorts of green outside my window, my winter coats have been put away, and I've even blinded passersby with my frighteningly pale legs a few times.... I think it's safe to say it's finally, officially spring! Thinking back to celebrating the first warm Vermont day a few weeks ago with @redhousevt and an abundance of @allagashbrewing beers + @jasperhillfarm cheese pairings! Aiming for a repeat this weekend, because we have summer shoot planning to do! (Also hoping to get in a few more days of sun on my legs before the shoot, so I don't look like a poster child for introvertedness and/or sunscreen... 😬)

This is the face Buckley Jones makes when @redhousevt and I stay out late having fun without him. 🐶 Team Witt and I had a blast at the @hotelvermont 5th anniversary party last night! We couldn't have asked for better weather, food, drinks, or people. We saw all our friends (@ahoopervt, @samwise18, @commondeer, @hoverfly, @saslabs, @hollywdvixen, @state_14) and rounded out the evening with plates of cheese fries and a debatably unnecessary last drink. 😂 Happy 5th, Hotel Vermont! You sure know how to throw one helluva party. 🎉🎈

It's nearly 80F here today, and I'm going a wee bit crazy being cooped up in my apartment. Looking forward to venturing out into the sunshine and enjoying a beverage with the two @redhousevt humans attached to these hands this evening! .

Taxes are DONE (or at least no longer my problem 🤗) and I'm ready to enjoy the rest of my weekend! Going to give myself a much needed break from my computer screen and devote some time to pouring over all the books that found their way onto my shelves in the past month.
.
I'm especially excited to finally see my friend @joannepalmisano's new book Styling with Salvage in print! I met Joanne a couple summers ago at a food writer event at @basinharbor, just a week before we were also scheduled to work a shoot together. Joanne is a restoration/DIY queen, and I'm pretty sure she exudes more enthusiasm and charismatic energy in her sleep than I ever could when I'm awake and fully caffeinated. 😂 Her dedication to restoring and repurposing old and otherwise forgotten items is extremely admirable, and her book is full of inspiration for my some-day forever home. (Also keeping my fingers crossed that I luck out like my parents and score a dozen giant windows from an old train station....swipe through for a bonus photo of that by @tnershi from waaay back in the day!)

Things I'd really like right now: For my taxes to finish doing themselves. ☹️ Sustained temperatures above 50F (and no more snow...seriously wtf). To see rhubarb in stores, so I have some proof that spring is actually a thing that still happens. And specifically, this vanilla-almond snack cake with rhubarb-mascarpone icing that I made several times last year. Recipe over on @vermontcreamery's site, if you're lucky enough to have rhubarb already! 🌱

Getting ready to start cooking for family and friends today! On the menu: potato & fennel au gratin, mushroom & spinach quiche, roasted cauliflower with fennel & pea shoot pesto, miso butter asparagus, and some sort of spring-y salad. Plus a radish & chive buttery cream cheese spread + smoked salmon appetizer, and angel food cake with mascarpone whipped cream and balsamic-y strawberries for dessert.

Little baby Topo atop a pile of @threadcaravan rugs this past weekend, before her big move from @maggie_pate's home in Chattanooga to her new home in Vermont! She was a total angel on both flights, and has already settled in nicely. Leaving her to run the apartment for a bit this evening (and hopefully not murder any plants 😬) while @redhousevt and I head over to @commondeer for a little women in business shindig! If you're in downtown BTV between 5:30-7:00 and enjoy cool folks, giveaways, and tasty treats, stop in and say 👋! .

It's my last full day in Tennessee! 😢 @maggie_pate is on an all-day shoot, which means I'm eating all of these orange-laced sugar cookies she made yesterday and no one can stop me! She and @hmmessinger topped them with cute little edible flowers because SPRING 🌸🌼🌺. Hoping if I eat enough it won't still feel like winter when I get back to Vermont tomorrow. 😝

Made it to Chattanooga (despite rampant flight cancellations!) and am settled into home-away- from-home vacation life. But right before this, I had one of the best mini-vacations EVER at the @trappfamilylodge in Stowe! I left my laptop at home, and @dj_fuents and I made our way up through the snowy mountains to our cozy home for the night, ordered all the things at the Bierhall, and stayed up late into the evening gossiping and giggling fireside. I grew up in a very rural part of upstate NY, and the Trapp Family Lodge reminded me of how enjoyable winter can be in a non-city environment—when you don’t mind being snowed in because it’s all snow-covered trees and hillsides just outside of your warm, cozy bubble. (Though my childhood home didn’t have saunas, a sugar shack, or a restaurant where I could eat my weight in delicious soft pretzels, schnitzel, and all the wursts!) I’m so psyched to have had the opportunity to partner with @bookingcom to experience this amazing place, and I’m already dreaming up plans to return in the summer, when everything is lush and green, and I’m more partial to outdoor activities. 😎🤗
.
Not at all surprisingly, the Trapp Family Lodge is part of @bookingcom’s ‘Book the U.S.’ List, which highlights the most unique places to stay in the 50 US states + DC. They’re currently holding a Chief Booking Officer contest that involves $50k and lots of travel to these various spots for the winner! You can find out more and enter at Booking.com/BooktheUS.
