As part of a new series called 5 Easy Pieces, we’ll be gathering our favorite upcycled, re-purposed, vintage and handmade stuff from around the web for you to buy or make yourself. So stay tuned for quick lists of 5 must-haves and get ready to wish you had thought of that.

Anarchy In A Jar makes jam, jelly, marmalade, chutney and pickled fruit that your mama wouldn’t recognize but might very well thank you for the taste. The Grapefruit and Smoked Marmalade is a standout, but the Easy Like Sunday Morning Blueberry Preserves are pretty sweet too. And by sweet, we mean delicious. Because “revolution starts in your mouth,” according to Laena McCarthy, jam architect.

Jimmy Luv’s Bloody Mary Mix

Jimmi Luvs Bloody Mary event with Harley.

Of course we love a home-brewed Bloody, complete with all sorts of crazy crudité, garnish and secret ingredients, but if you’re that, ahem, groggy, sometimes it’s nice to have a homemade mix made for you. Welcome, Jimmy Luv, the Milwaukee-based Bloody Mary king. If you not making it yourself, you probably want a Jimmy Luv.

Oh. My. God. What do you get when you combine cornflakes, marshmallows, chocolate chips, love and the best dang bakers this side of the Mississippi? This lil’ patty of heaven. Their Compost and Confetti Cookies are also amazing but we’d jump in front of a bus for one more Cornflake. That David Chang knows what the fuku he’s doing.

Homemade hummus, from a man that would never view it as a dip, but as a meal in itself. Enough said.

The Mediterranean no longer has a lock on beautifully-made olive oil. California is rolling in the green with small-batch olive oil, delicious enough to eat on its own, with an entire baguette, and maybe a pinch of salt and whisper of red pepper flakes. Grab a bottle from San Francisco’s McEvoy Ranch and taste the regional sun.

For your own delicious olive oil, visit Mcevoyranch.com.

    Wonderful! This blog looks specifically like my old a single! It’s on a totally different subject but it has quite a lot the same layout and style. Exceptional option of colors!

  • Thanks for making me to obtain new tips about computer systems. I also contain the belief that certain of the best ways to keep your laptop in excellent condition is by using a hard plastic material case, and also shell, that fits over the top of the computer. These kinds of protective gear are usually model precise since they are manufactured to fit perfectly across the natural covering. You can buy these directly from the vendor, or through third party places if they are intended for your laptop, however not all laptop may have a cover on the market. Just as before, thanks for your suggestions.
