We’ve reached the second stop on our very exciting virtual book tour: Nikki Gardner’s gorgeous Art & Lemons blog. In Nikki’s own words, Art & Lemons is “about art, food, and story. I feature contemporary art and artists (especially photography), original vegetarian recipes made with whole and natural ingredients, and the stories that tie it all together.” Nikki’s Cauliflower with Brown Butter and Lemons is irresistibly alluring—and these innocent-looking s’mores-esque Retro Grahams are screaming out for our attention. (You got it, little guys!)
Today Nikki shares a memory from her college days that fills us with nostalgia for smoky lounges, ’80s tunes, and the hearty and delicious vegetarian meals of our own collegiate lives. Visit Art & Lemons today to read about the May Birthday Celebration Dinner she’s planning, including our lemon vinaigrette and pasta with asparagus, leeks, and chevre recipes. While you’re there, take a few minutes to marvel at Nikki’s truly gorgeous food photography, and check out her featured artists, short stories, and, not to be missed, her The Lazy Gourmet giveaway.
