although my wardrobe is pretty much stripped to basics and monochromatic tones, i still like color in my home. the fastest way to add a pop of color is with flowers, surely, or a couple of seasonal decorative pillows and throws.
i know it’s barely spring (although the weather has been treating us very nicely, lately), but i’m already in a summer state of mind. i’d like to go somewhere exotic, maybe tropic, or at least a little bit southern. somewhere with a beach with beautiful bright blue water and white sand. where they serve littleContinue reading
the times when easter was still all about egg hunts and finding your easter basket (that someone put together with much love and care) are long gone, yet especially on holidays like easter, i miss being a child. i’ve been awfully spoilt, that’s for sure, but i wouldn’t want to make it any other wayContinue reading
this has been such a wonderful and happy – albeit very intense – week! so many good surprises (like a new project at work), a blog project that we’ve put the finish touches on (i am sorry i will only be able to reveal what it is later – i.e. next month). the only thing that’sContinue reading
it’s the season to be merry! and to begin with, there’s always the same, much beloved tradition: decking the halls. in other years, the results looked like this and this and this. there are the traditional home made tree trimmings wreaths, the mistletoe (a must have for the fork and flower headquarters, as it’s in the logo,Continue reading
you know those fancy restaurants, where you can pick cheese or dessert? to me, to choose between cheese and dessert is an impossible task. or the outcome seems to be a lose-lose, somehow. because i obviously always want both. those pears are kind of like my signature dish. i like to make them for brunches,Continue reading
i like things that take their time. don’t all good things do? take yesterday morning, for example. i went running. it was already rather hot out at 7am, so it was a slow and languish run. but i was still advancing. and i was so lucky to experience a mouse crossing my path (literally) withContinue reading
here’s that bouquet i told you about, for my friend who was getting married (civillian) on friday. i want to stress that i think there’s no better thing than a blue bouquet (something blue, huh?) for a bride. apart from the fact that i’m obviously anyhow smitten with blue flowers. don’t ask me what itContinue reading
my friend is getting married on friday! i’m making a tiny bouquet for her. i’m thinking maybe wide open, white peonies and fluffy snowballs…? in the meantime, i’m enjoying these friends here. i wish peonies season was never over.
happy morther’s day to all moms out there! i don’t know a lot about motherhood (none to nothing, really). because, unlike many of my friends, i haven’t had this urge to have a baby of my own. but i’m starting to think that it would definitely be wonderful to have a daughter, one day, toContinue reading
Hello and welcome on F&F! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Scarlett and I love to elevate the everyday with honest, simple food.

See what I've been cooking, where we've been eating or are going for a stroll. And for yet more inspiration follow along my adventures on Social Media:
