Strawberry Moon

A special post in honor of tonight's rare solstice occasion!

"For one night, it is the Summer of Love all over again. Astronomically speaking.

For the first time since June 1967, two astronomical phenomena will occur at the same time. Monday evening, a full "strawberry" moon will shine in the night sky during the summer solstice — the longest day of the year.

EarthSky.org said a full moon on a summer solstice is a rare event, and another one is not likely to come around until June 21, 2062.

Why is it called a strawberry moon? The Old Farmer's Almanac says the Algonquin tribe of indigenous Americans called the June full moon by that name because it occurred around the time the strawberries were being picked.

The moon reached its fullness this morning, and the actual evening solstice will take place at 6:34 p.m. Eastern time.

Two hours after that, the moon will rise at 8:41 p.m. Eastern time, and viewers will be able to see an event that occurs only once every half-century." -earthsky

Atomic girls

My very last Collection for Wildfox! So bittersweet. Some of my favorite pieces here, just incredibly fun and rewarding to create. A lot of these weren't produced so don't be sad when you cant find them. 

I was inspired when I visited Eugene, Oregon to see my boyfriends mother, she told me about growing up with her Dad who worked on the Atomic bomb. Their town and family suffered illnesses from this and the story was so compelling it made me want to research the atomic age in America. I wanted to bring this weird point in history to life,

"think plastics, board housewives, robots and funny futuristic interpretations."

Smoked Salmon Macarons

Absolutely beautiful, dying to try one! From the talented Thirsty For Tea

Just when you thought you’d tasted the most unique flavors of French Macarons, here’s one more to try that you probably won’t spot in the pastry case of your local pâtisserie! Happy Friday and Bon Appétit!

Smoked Salmon French Macarons

Makes 35 macaron sandwiches.

Ingredients:

{Macaron Shells}

dried chives or dill

{Filling}

4 oz smoked salmon

5 oz package Boursin cheese, at room temperature

2 Tbsp lemon juice

1/2 oz fresh chives or dill, finely chopped

black pepper to taste

Equipment:

food processor

rubber spatula

piping bag fitted with #847 star tip

Directions:

1.)  Make the macaron shells (without the green tea powder). If you’d like to decorate the tops of the shells with herbs, scatter them on just after piping out the macarons in step 8. After baking, match shells into pairs based on size and shape. Set the shells aside to cool.

2.)  Make the filling by placing the smoked salmon, cheese, lemon juice, and pepper into a food processor and processing until everything is evenly mixed. Mix in the chopped herbs gently with a rubber spatula.

3.)  Place the smoked salmon cheese filling into the piping bag. Fill one macaron shell from each pair with a 2 tsp dollop of the filling, then top with the other matching macaron shell.

4.)  Ideally, let the macarons set in the fridge in a covered container for a few hours before serving. This way, the flavors of the filling have a chance to meld with the shells.
