What happens when you mix Scandinavian sensibilities with cozy cabin moments? The perfect Thanksgiving tabletop to show off a modern, yet traditional style, that’s what. And yet – it’ so much more than that. Stay with me here… See, when I think about my girlfriends, I see strong, forward-thinking women who can definitely hold their own. And yet… we’re all […]

RECIPE :: HOT ARTICHOKE AND CRANBERRY DIP

artichoke cranberry dip coco kelley_4

Confession: I’m the type of person who creates a spreadsheet for holiday dinners. I make sure that the turkey, the side dishes, the drinks are all covered… but I always always forget about the appetizers. Not this year! Dips are a perfect appetizer and a host’s best friend. They only require a few minutes and […]

    Looks so delish! This feels like such a silly question but did you use canned artichoke hearts? If so, is there a brand you recommend? The artichokes look so much better than the canned ones I’ve tried to use in the past that were too salty, too soft, and generally a real disappointment!

      We used jarred ones – I get mine from Trader Joe’s! Some are flavored, and some aren’t so be careful which ones you grab!! For dip, it doesn’t matter quite as much since they get baked in anyway, but I know what you mean!

    Welp, I’m officially making this on Saturday when I host the 2nd Annual Perfect Fall Day for some girlfriends. Will report back! 🙂 Also grateful to know which artichokes you bought.

    I am planning to make this for a Christmas party next weekend. What size baking dish did you use? I’m thinking of picking up a new Le Creuset at Williams Sonoma…

If you’re anything like me, you’re a last minute lucy when it comes to the holidays. So, come about 4pm today I’ll be fighting crowds at the grocery store for some cranberries and brussel sprouts to complete my contributions to our family’s Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. For those of you who are still putting together shopping […]

    I added the vanilla afterwards, I guess because I’ve heard somewhere that heat can burn off some of the flavor of vanilla (?) and it was AMAZING! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

MY THANKSGIVING TABLE INSPIRATION…

Two things have providing inspiration for a simple, organic Thanksgiving table this year – and if you follow me on instagram, then you already know what one of them is! These bunches of cotton branches. And if you’ve been reading the blog, then you might recognize the other one from my November moodboard – black and white buffalo plaid. […]

    What a beautiful table setting! Lovely color combination, simple and stylish. Perfect timing, too. I recently bought some cotton branches and just didn’t know what to do with them. You gave me perfect inspiration. Thank you!

    With Love, Monika
