Soup's On

This recent feature in Bon Appetit makes me hungry.

I love when magazines showcase real people entertaining in real life (even if it's a reenactment of an event that already happened). I especially love when magazines show real people from my hometown, Los Angeles! This one featured jewelry designer Melissa McClure (whose designs are so so beautiful btw).

The photos and recipes inspire me to plan a similar party. And I love the warm spirit of Ms. McClure's advice: "Always double your recipe. You never know how many people will drop in!"
