Inspiration and the Fruit Mug

“I get these insane ideas…”

IMG_0658.JPGI get these insane ideas and sometimes it doesn’t work out, sometimes it’s so good I don’t tell anyone because it’s how I plan on getting rich, and sometimes I forget if I don’t write it down and it’s gone forever.  I created a new tab on my website called, “Inspiration”.  For those times when you just want to look at gorgeous photos of food and also because a lot of the time my recipes are more of an idea than a recipe.

I woke up Thursday morning in Seattle with a craving for fruit.  I had no idea what I was going to make so I made my way to the farmers market to see what was fresh.  I’m that disgusting human being that needs to touch every single fruit to make sure I LOVE it before bringing it home with me.  It’s an intimate thing.  I grabbed a mango and my finger sunk into it and I yelled, “OH MY GOD ITS PERFECT!”  The clerk that was working nodded at me like, “I know right”.  I instantly wanted to turn it into a flower.  When I got home and made the flower I looked at the bowls and was disappointed that my fruit was prettier than all of the china.  My coffee mug on the drying rack looked at me and said, “Maybe I can help?”  Unconventional, but maybe he was onto something.  I threw my combo of tangerines and orange slices into the bottom and placed the flower on top.  I filled in the cracks with RAMBUTAN (not to be confused with lychee, you idiot Kayla) and then chopped up a few pistachios and put them on top.

What I’m getting at… I could say YOU HAVE TO MAKE A BANANA TANGERINE SALAD AND PUT A MANGO AND RAMBUTAN AND PISTACHIOS ON TOP OR ELSE UNSUBSCRIBE… but what I’m trying to say is that you should probably put your fruit in a mug because it will make you feel awesome and happy.

If you would like to be featured on my inspiration tab, send me an email at and you might see your art here too! 🙂
