Grape Truffles

I recently bumped into this simple appetizer idea and I had been waiting for the perfect excuse to try it out.

A few of my friends came over to watch the Oscars this past Sunday, and it was the perfect excuse.  I love that these are so quick to make, and offer the right combination of salty, sweet, and slight crunch.

For my version, I used black pepper goat cheese to coat the (seedless) grapes. It was delicious and definitely added a spicy kick.

Blogger Spotlight: Sincerely Hana

{Check out all Switcheroos}

All of the photos on Hana’s photo blog are beautiful. But I especially enjoyed going through all the switcheroos: photos of couples who then pose for the same picture wearing each other’s clothes.

These must be a blast to take and they’re so fun and entertaining!

P.S. If you live in Vancouver, you could take part! Check out her site for details here.

A case for a cause

Without knowing about the cause, I thought the anicases were among the cutest iPhone cases I’d seen. Then I found out that each case is uniquely molded to resemble an endangered species (and that each animal’s story is printed inside the case). Not only is this a great effort to raise awareness, 10% of net profits goes to support the endangered species. This makes me like them even more.

Also, remember these soaps? Another great cause.
