Friday Link Love Starts with hot tea + SMEG

Friday Link Love starts with how much I love our  new tea kettle from SMEG.  We drink a lot of tea around here.  We have used a kettle on the stove forever.  Years ago my friend Gemma from the UK couldn’t believe we still made it that way.  I think it’s because I could never find an electric kettle that I liked.  But that was before I found this one by SMEG.

Working Out —in a Museum – This is brilliant.  And all before the Met even opens its doors in the morning.   It’s a 45 minute workout with music and moves through an otherwise quiet time of day at the museum.  You’ll end up in The American Wing where you’ll nosh on crusty bread and butter, coffee and clementines.

Make this simple pasta on a busy weeknight or anytime you’re craving pasta.

It may be early February, but it’s not too early to start thinking about outdoor patio weather once you’ve seen these chairs on Emily Henderson’s former deck.

 I’ll mix in my favorite outdoor pillows from Serena & Lily.

I’ll be making this baked camembert on Super Bowl Sunday.

Ever since I started making almond butter I’ve been searching for more recipes using nut butters.  I’ll be trying this one for Flourless Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies today.

Searching for the perfect Valentine gift?  Original art is always a good idea.  Like this one titled “Somewhere Sweet” by Lizzy Ragsdale and available in her online shop.  Or commission a painting of a favorite place like this one.

Have a lovely weekend and thank you from the bottom of my heart for showing up here and reading MLT. I love getting your emails about everything from the perfect white paint to coffee shop recommendations.  xo annie

    Adorable. All Smeg things are.

  • Brooke Christen

    I shared a Smeg toaster today too! Great minds! Xoxo

      I brought home a Smeg toaster as well, but Patrick was horrified that I was replacing the toaster we’ve had since he was born. Who knew 17 year old boys were sentimental about such things! Heading over to read about your Smeg situation!

    I have used an electric tea kettle for years out of necessity. My husband always left out kettle on until it ran out of water. Didnt matter if it whistled or not he would ignore it. With an electric one that turns off as soon as water boils I can sleep safely or not worry that i will come back to a home that is in ashes!
    A lot of the reviews for the Smeg are not favorable. Mostly because they dont last and name peels off. So I wil be curious to see what you think in a few months.
    I hope it will be good because it is so much nicer looking than mine!

      Kathleen- I know—- I cannot tell you how often I used to forget that I wanted a cup of tea as it whistled away on the stove! I hope my Smeg lasts! But I will be sure to keep you posted! xo annie

    Oh wow Annie, that workout at the museum sounds like heaven ~ I need to convince some LA museums to do that! Thanks for mentioning my cookies <3

      HI Sue,

      I cant wait to try your cookies! And your photo on instagram with nut butter on an apple—you are so good! Can’t believe LA didn’t think of working out in a museum first!

    THAT would be a fun way to workout!! I want that kettle…I need one too!

  • Elizabeth Burns

    My English friends couldn’t believe I still used a stove top kettle either! I have an electric one now but not as cute as the SMEG!

  • kim

    Love the Smeg kettle! We have an electric kettle and I don’t know how I’d ever do without one now. The Smeg is especially cute. How’d you like the toaster? My Dualit is about ready to be replaced after 22 years.

    • annie

      Kim,
      I returned the toaster because my 17 year old son was horrified that I could replace the toaster we’ve had since he was born. Funny thing—he doesn’t even eat toast any more. I think it was all those years of eating stacks of cinnamon sugar toast and then stacking up the crusts like a Jenga game! So the Dualit stays!
