In my Kitchen: Beth from Hello Splendor

I knew Beth would send me some cool pics for the series, and I'm not disappointed, her kitchen is functional, fun and really pretty, exactly my type of space.If you don't know eth already, you can find her at Hello, Splendor and her professional work at  Pulp Design Studios. The Pepperchelamis recipes sounds yUUUmy!
Thanks Beth!
Eat in or out: Both! We cook most nights and treat ourselves with a meal out a couple of nights a week. 
Take away or restaurant: Restaurant for sure! If you're gonna pay for it, you might as well have service & an great atmosphere. 
I cook for: My husband & 17 month-old son. Although, my husband does most of the cooking! I'm more of a weekend cook. 

Healthy food: Granola, yogurt, and blueberries with a drizzle of honey
Indulgence: Lobster risotto
Weekend Meal: French onion soup
Date Dinner: Rack of lamb with a mint reduction sauce
Quick fix: "Pickin's!" It's what we call antipasto. Caprese salad, sliced cheese, olives, cured meats, and fruit. We eat it for dinner at least once a week.

My kitchen is: Too small, but full of love & personality
Favorite gadget(s): My kitchenAid mixer. 
In the kitchen, I couldn't leave without: The corkscrew!  
My cooking bible: Claire Robinson's 5 Ingredient Fix 

My must ingredients: butter, mozzarella, prosciutto, and a heavy hand of salt.
Spicy or Mild: Mild! I'm really a wimp when it comes to spice... and it doesn't help my ego when I'm married to an Italian and my business partner is Mexican.
My recipe: 
This is a highly coveted appetizer recipe that gets requested at every cocktail party & family gathering. Trust me! It's simple and a little strange, but just try it.

1/2 lb genoa salami (thinly sliced, but not paper thin)
8 oz tub of regular cream cheese
Jar of pre-sliced pepperocinis 

Smear a slice of salami with cream cheese. Top with pepperocinis in a line down the center of the slice of salami. Roll up tightly and secure with a toothpick. Continue until all salami slices are used. Simple! It's most time efficient when done in an assembly style making at least 5 at once.


  1. Oh, how fun is her kitchen! It seems like such a happy place, doesn't it? I just know my hubby would love that appetizer... I will try for sure. xo
