  1. There are few things more charming than a simple, beautiful cake. Maybe pie. But that’s a story for another blog post. One of my little domestic goals is to become a better baker this year and I’ve decided to start by upping my cake game. I usually stick with my go-to recipe: the Winning Hearts and Minds …

  2. There’s no place like home. Sometimes, it takes a trip away to remember what you have in your own backyard. Now that I’m home with the baby and doing less traveling, I’ve become reaquainted with all there is to offer in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We often get emails from readers from the coasts who find themselves with …

  3. New mom, new me, new hair! I’m thinking I need a change this fall and here is what we’re seeing for trends: 1. Deep, sleek side part: This is an easy makeover. No cut needed. Super chic but still relaxed. A good balance, no? 2. Natural Root: I dyed my hair way, way back and I’d …

  5. Pregnancy opened up a whole new world of drinks that I never thought I’d get this excited about. I mean, if you’re going to have a fancy drink, it better have alcohol in it, right? Well, clearly I was wrong. Not only have I really enjoyed 9 months without alcohol in my system, I’ve come to …

  6. Want More W&D?

  7. I’ve been screamin’ for ice cream all summer long. Not the fancy kind, just the simplest flavor out there: vanilla bean. Now, a true vanilla bean ice cream should never, ever be confused for an artificially flavored one. It’s kind of like ordering something that’s “cherry” flavored. It’s a whole different thing and maybe delicious, it …

  8. Woof. We’re in the dog days of summer and the last thing I want is my hair sticking to the back of my neck. I’m also currently debating growing my hair out again, which means my lob is at a weird in-between phase with bangs that don’t really do much but curl in 17 different angles …

  9. I never met a caprese salad I didn’t like. With tomato season in full swing and backyard full of basil, it’s a kitchen staple right now. Alas, what if you can have too much of a good thing (or maybe you simply run out of garden tomatoes)? That’s where this recipe comes in. Peaches. Who would have …

  10. Our son, August Joseph Peters is here! Auggie arrived on 7/16/16 at 11:52am. He was 7lbs, 14oz and as sweet as can be. We’re two weeks into this transformative adventure and both Joe and myself are fully steeped in baby haze. Who knew you could be so tired and so full of joy at the same …

  11. Our monthly reading edits are compiled by Francine Thompson, W&D’s Content Manager, Bridgette Dutkowski, W&D’s Project Manager, and me! Every month we get together to talk about the content going on W&D for the upcoming weeks, which is most often inspired by articles, timely topics, and cultural touch points outside the lifestyle category. We hope that we enjoy these links …

  13. It’s July and I just had a baby. It’s hot, I’m exhausted and honestly, all I want is some sushi, and a super duper strong tequila cocktail. Not sure if I’m ready for a sushi and tequila binge on very little sleep, but I’m going to do the next best thing: make a totally refreshing and delicious virgin …
