Pure Green Magazine is a lovely Canadian print magazine dedicated to stylish green living. This quarterly publication (which is printed on 100% post-consumer paper with vegetable inks) just launched their premier print issue, which focuses on one of my favorite topics: entertaining. In addition to stories on homes, travel and fashion, this issue includes some delicious ideas for cooking. I love being able to flip through pages and tear things out when they look good, and this issue is full of tear-worthy ideas. Click here for more info and to order a subscription online. xo, grace
The Hungry Girls’ Cookbooks are more like art-based magazines than straightforward cookbooks, and they are handmade, designed and written by three friends, Rachel Pitts (recipes), Katherine Bird (design and illustrations) and Leah Holscher (photography). It’s awesome when friends come together to produce something creative, and these girls have really done it well. Each copy is hand-bound with cloth and made on 100% recycled paper in Australia. Volume 3 just launched last week, and I think they’d make a spectacular gift for the foodie in your life. They celebrate fresh, local food while looking as beautiful as the food is tempting to eat.

Above image: We fashioned a tiny Eiffel Tower out of a single piece of copper wire. Bend a length of copper wire so there are about 4 inches on one side. Twist at the bend about three-quarters of the way down. Twist the longer side of the wire upward from the bottom, curve it across to the other leg and twist back down. Cut off any excess.
