Seven Lamps Anniversary Dinner + Leah’s Link Loves

On Sunday night, we attended a special event celebrating Seven Lamps’ one year anniversary, which is a restaurant in the Shops Around Lenox in Buckhead.  The event featured plates from Atlanta’s most reputable chefs as well as drinks crafted by top notch Atlanta based mixologists.   As my husband put it, this was kind of like the equivalent of my Superbowl (the other primary contender being Oscar night).  I loved having the opportunity to see what is on the cutting edge of the culinary world.  Here are some photographic highlights from the evening:

And… are some links I’ve been loving this week:

Our wedding is featured in the new edition of Modern Luxury Brides Magazine.  Scroll to pages 104-105 to check it out.

These little debbie-style cakes are really cool.

We would likely all sleep better without TVs in our bedrooms, but I’m not sure I could part with mine.

Likely experimenting with these lamb meatballs this weekend.

Israeli vegans were able to convince Domino’s to offer vegan pizza in Israel.

James Beard Foundation’s favorite drinks and eats from 2013.

Restaurants are trying to go gluten-free but its tough.

Cinnamon-roll cookies might have be made sometime soon.

Some people are so talented – it blows me away.  Check out this triple chocolate smores bark.

This spinach, feta and artichoke dip could be a nice update on the classic artichoke dip we all know and love.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

  1. The Seven Lamps event looks like a blast! What beautiful presentations. For the link loves–that triple chocolate smores bark looks quite dangerous….no doubt it’s worth the weight watchers points 🙂

  2. Your wedding in the magazine…that’s awesome. You, of course, look so gorgeous! It’s a great photo of you & Richard! xoxo
