Of all of the beautiful markets that pop up around the holidays, the Remodelista one may be my favorite. I don’t think there was a single vendor whose wares I didn’t admire or covet. The prices tend to be higher, the assembly a bit more aspirational—but the selection also tends toward heirloom, so it’s inspirational as well.

Are you familiar with the site Remodelista? I subscribe and have to confess that there are too many posts each day for me to keep apace. But I can never bring myself to unsubscribe because it’s so full of gems. The founder, Julie Carlson, launched the site as a digital guide to home design and so on any given day you’re as likely to find a round-up of well-designed faucets as you are a minimalist home tour. If you don’t own a home or aren’t remodeling a kitchen, it can be easy to scroll past. But they’ve got a talent for finding beauty in the practical, and I love seeing who they bring to their market.

This year, we even got a babysitter and made a date out of going into the city to visit!

Some highlights…

It’s surprisingly easy to make your own marshmallows. I had conjured up images of sugary, sticky fingers that leave their mark for days. But the mess was actually minimal.

We had decided to invite some friends over after dinner one Monday night to roast S’mores and—inspired by the homemade raspberry ones we had in Tahoe last year—wanted to include some fresh peppermint ones. While I think Hudson preferred the standard Jet-Puffed, I definitely thought the homemade ones were the best. Most recipes call for corn syrup, but Aron found us a recipe that uses evaporated milk instead. We then added peppermint extract and swirled in just a touch of red dye (which you could skip—or do more heavily).

Here’s how to make your own…
