It’s the second episode of Tough Cookie, and I had the pleasure of interviewing Michell Mitchel, co-founder and Chief Cultural Angel at Humm Kombucha! In this episode we talk good vibes, motherhood, and just going for it in a new business.
I’m always at my local library, and I love checking out the “what’s new” on the the non-fiction book shelf when you walk in. I have to say, the last few months I’ve been noticing a design pattern on book covers! A particular script font that is being used quite a bit… Thirsty Script in Rough and Regular. Just take a look:
Here’s a mini episode to share what Tough Cookie is about, and a little bit about who’s coming up on the podcast!
2017 is well on it’s way… how is it the end of March already?! I have landed on my word for the year, and I’m dreaming up all kinds of ways to apply it in my life. My word is G R O W. That’s yours?
Grow and dough kinda go hand-in-hand. It’s an easy connection, especially when yeast is involved. Watching dough expand in the bowl is fun! Well, I don’t usually sit there and watch it, it’s more like I check up on it occasionally. But just like a little plant in the garden or my young niece, I get excited over growth. I also get excited over pizza.
This post has been YEARS in the making. I made these once about 7 years ago, and they were delicious but suuuuper spicy. Those chipotle chilis in adobo deliver! I always wanted to remake them, but this time I wanted to tame the sauce just a teeny bit. The result was a delicious, sticky, medium heat chicken wing, with the added fun of a dipping sauce.
Goals are great, I totally love goals. But sometimes articulating my goals is a little hard and a little too specific. A mood board for the year is like a baby step towards a goal. As a graphic designer, I build mood boards for my clients often – it’s usually one of the first things I send to them before we fully get going on a project.
My mom used to make oven fried chicken a lot. I remember coming home on Sundays from church, and we were likely to have one of three dishes: Pot roast, meatloaf, or oven fried chicken. Mashed potatoes on the side, no matter what. When I was little, my parents didn’t cook many dishes that were outside of those classic American staples, but they cooked each one of them well. I loved my Mom’s oven fried chicken, but I tried to make it recently and I felt like it could use a few modern improvements (no offense, Mom, I love you!)
