Here Comes the Easter Bunny …

Hippity-Hop! In just a few more weeks the Easter Bunny will be visiting your house! Have you made your wish list? Our team at Lifeguard Press has been working on theirs … and below are a few of their favorite items!

We are loving the favorite picks of the Lilly Pulitzer Diary, Thermal Mug, Sailor Bracelets and Umbrella. And, j’adore the giant poodle eraser from Jonathan Adler! (You must check out the giant erasers in shapes of a whale, elephant and turtle, too!) The Jonathan Adler highlighters are always a superstar and will go quite colorfully with the Easter Eggs. And … check out the little “baskets” made out of ice cream cones, Jelly Belly jelly beans and licorice. Genius!

But, are you looking for an Easter basket, too? Want to do something totally different? We are loving these ideas …

What about filling a Jonathan Adler laptop bag or Lilly Pulitzer lunch box with goodies? It’s the “basket” they’ll want to use all year! Or, we think the Lilly Pulitzer ice bucket would make the ultimate “basket.” Who wouldn’t want this fabulous gift filled with Peeps?! (Best part? The ice bucket can be personalized!) Or, want a basket that is already gift filled and gift wrapped? Check out the new Lilly Pulitzer bath set – filled with Lilly Pulitzer bubble bath, mit, fizzie, and even a pink rubber ducky! Love!

Happy Easter from all of us at Lifeguard Press!

Final Days of the Jonathan Adler Summer Lovin’ Contest

We hope you all enjoyed your weekend and are looking forward to the approaching 4th of July Holiday! This morning we were enjoying our morning coffee (in our Greek Key Thermal Mugs), planning our 4th of the July cookout, while watching our new brand Dylan’s Candy Bar on The Early Show giving tips on adding some festive flair to our barbeque! Speaking of festive flair: today only Jonathan Adler’s Paper Lanterns will be on sale. These are must have for your 4th of July celebration!

We wanted to commend you all on your brilliant efforts on Friday’s question! We hope it didn’t make you want to throw a few pots! In 2006, what global icon did Jonathan Adler teach to throw a pot? The one and only Oprah!!

Jonathan Adler was featured on the episode of Oprah “Loving What They Do”. Jonathan shared with Oprah that he has one overall intention behind everything he designs. “I feel your home should make you happy,” he says. “The real intention is to make stuff that’s very personal, very idiosyncratic, and very uplifting.” Doesn’t that give you the motivation to redecorate!? We know of a picture frame that would be perfect in your redecorating…

What colors make up our Jonathan Adler Square Pegs Picture Frame?

A Favorite Summer Party Recipe!

So … the most searched items that leads to the Lifeguard Press blog? Lilly Pulitzer and Jonathan Adler parties … and recipe for Potatoes Anna! (And, we have to be honest, we had never heard of Potatoes Anna until it started popping up on our search statistics weekly.) Quickly, we fell in love with Potatoes Anna, too, and think that it is the perfect dish for summer parties and bbqs outdoors during this sunny weather.

Of course, we think that any party works perfectly with fun invitations, party lanterns, pinwheels, coasters, paper plates and napkins, drink umbrellas, and so much more from Lifeguard Press! After all, every casual party should be chic, too. So, go ahead … browse www.lifeguardpress.com and check out our Party Essentials as you begin to plan your party (whether it is for 2 or 200!).

And, enjoy this wonderful recipe for Potatoes Anna that we found on the Food Network site from Emeril Lagasse (BAM! Sorry, couldn’t resist.). It is super simple and really tasty. And, an easy recipe to play with – we love goat cheese with this!

Bon Appetit!

INGREDIENTS
2 pounds large Yukon gold potatoes
1/4 cup clarified butter
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel and trim the potatoes into a uniform cylindrical shape. Cut the cylinders into thin, 1/16-inch slices, preferably with a mandoline so that the slices are of uniform thickness.

Liberally brush an 8-inch saute pan with clarified butter and arrange the potato slices in concentric rings emanating from the center of the pan. Lightly brush each layer with clarified butter and season each layer lightly with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes on the stovetop and cook undisturbed over medium heat until golden brown on the bottom, about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the potatoes to the oven and cook until caramelized and cooked through, about 30 minutes, pressing the potatoes occasionally to compress and shaking the pan to keep the potatoes from sticking to the bottom.

Drain the excess butter from the pan and turn the potato cake out onto a cutting board. Slice into quarters and serve.
