hey ho! 

it's muggy outside! it's gross outside! i hate walking outside! this is new york city at its finest: humid and hot summertime. it's cool though. i only have to deal with it a bit longer before having to deal with it every day in los angeles (hello, college). 

*sigh*

i question whether i was really born for sun. 

i realize i haven't done a link love-ish thing in a while-- where i share internet things that have piqued my interest and things. maybe i'll do that now. that sounds like a plan.

izzy's link love of july thus far

1. yesterday, me and my friend isla popped into this ~concept~ store in nolita, nyc called bulletin with the coolest shirts and jewelry and lapel pins and other things that celebrate females. a portion of all purchases goes directly to planned parenthood of nyc. yessssss.

2. as i'm slowly starting the process of figuring out what i need for college living (more specifically, in the heat of LA), i realized that what i really really really need in life is this handmade double-sided graphic quilt from cold picnic. get ready for my plant-filled/interior-designed dorm next year. 

3. yeah, it feels like summer.

4. jack harries's new short films never fail to amaze me. a narrative on the effects of technology, rawness, traveling, and connecting with others: headed east.

5. ever since i watched this video (living as a new yorker), i've never not noticed this thing that train conductors do.

6. you know i love james turrell.

now, onto that pancakes recipe. aka what this post is really about.

remember these? i don't even remember the last time i made those pancakes. (hint, it was actually over a year ago). i don't even remember the last time i had a banana.

so here, i give you an updated fluffy pancakes recipe. it involves fresh egg whites (leftover from making frozen custard) and coconut flour. easy peasy.


fluffy pancakes for one

serves 1

what you do

1. in a small bowl, sift together coconut flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt. mix until combined.

2. in another medium bowl, whip egg whites and vanilla until stiff peaks form.  

3. pour flour mixture and coconut yogurt into whipped egg whites. starting with 1 tablespoon, fold together almond milk with everything else using using a spatula until a thick batter forms. you might not need all 1/3 cup of the milk. 

4. spray a castiron skillet with coconut oil and set dollops of 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan. cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the edges are brown. 

5. serve and drown in (very pure, very vermont) maple syrup.

what you need

  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • pinch of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut yogurt (or applesauce) 
  • 1/3 cup almond milk

 


you're welcome.

there's been a lot of chatter with the winter olympics starting tomorrow. 

in the midst of all of that, i stumbled upon this pavilion designed by asif khan using that chemical substance that absorbs almost all (99.965%) of radiation of the visual spectrum.

vantablack.

it's a visual black hole and completely disrupts three dimensional space. though, it adds elements of it back with the assorted star-lights outside.

“from a distance the structure has the appearance of a window looking into the depths of outer space. as you approach it, this impression grows to fill your entire field of view. so on entering the building, it feels as though you are being absorbed into a cloud of blackness."
