As many of you know, my husband Mark and I, own our own graphic design / illustration studio, Hero Design Studio, and we also have a storefront here in Buffalo where we sell all of the things we make by hand. Beyond all of our client work and having a storefront, we sell our wares online in our web store and our etsy store and we also travel the country attending different music festivals and craft fairs. I feel blessed every day to be able to do what I love most with the person I love most. Besides cooking, getting up and going to work is one of many joys in my life, I love being able to be creative everyday and to make what I love. There are so many similarities between cooking and a creative job, both come from the heart and are so personal. They are so unique to each individual and when you give yourself fully and honestly to your craft you are also (hopefully) bringing that love and happiness to others, as well.
I recently combined my love of design and illustration with my love of cooking and designed a kitchen measurement conversion print and a flour sack tea towel. The print is 8″ x 10″ and available in 4 different colors, Vintage Blue, Lemon Yellow, Retro Red and Green Apple and it was hand silkscreen printed by us. The 22″ x 38″ flour sack tea towel is available in Vintage Green and Retro Red and was hand silkscreen printed by our good friend Tom from Pavlov’s Togs. I have had a number of different food, wine and cooking projects on my mind for sometime now and I decided to make this the first of hopefully many, as it is not only fun to look at, but it is also functional.

Ooh, I’ve been meaning to come pick up one of these awesome tea towels!
My favorite recipe is one of the first – the blueberry almond meal muffins. I read that recipe almost right after I found out I was gluten intolerant, and it made me really happy to find such a delicious muffin recipe. They were my breakfast every day for a couple weeks! I felt so much less deprived going through that transition.
Thanks for all the great recipes and cooking inspiration!
Beth- your towels were a hit for Christmas! I absolutely love them! My favorite recipe, by far, is the Butternut Squash Risotto- I have made it 3 times in the past 2 months. It’s healthy, delicious, and very filling- love your ideas! Keep up the great work!
these are adorable & perfect for my new apartment!
i’m looking forward to a hot bowl of creamy broccoli soup in the next few days…
Love the poster and towel design! Just found you through Twitter and am drooling over your smoothies…. I am going to read more about them and the other recipes you have posted and try them.
Thank you for sharing!

My bro and his girlfriend made the Chipotle Hummus, which was delicious! And i am looking forward to finally making the Vegetarian Shepherd’s Pie i fell in love with. Oh, and the Green Smoothie. And well, pretty much anything filed under ‘vegetarian’!!! <3
These are so amazing! Ohhh I hope I win!
I JUST found your blog and love it! My favourite: You have a winter section! So, of course my favourite recipe has to be from there too. I chose Creamy Broccoli Soup! I love pureed soup in the winter. Haven’t made this yet, but it’s on my “to make” list.
loving the blog and the website!! cant wait to visit hero next time i am in #buffalo
want to try the Roasted Winter Vegetable Ragout so badly!!
What adorable tea towels!! How very crafty!
New to your site, but am absolutely dying to try the Pumpkin, Ricotta & Gruyère Pasta Casserole!!
Have to share that I found you via a LONG trail. I am researching Buffalo/Niagara in anticipation of a weekend getaway with my boyfriend in mid-February. (Brr!)
Trail goes like this: Buffalo CVB website, watched video about the WinterFest, saw a banner for BuffaloRising.com in festival video hanging on the Pearl Street Grill, went to their website, then to their Twitter feed and saw they had retweeted your giveaway announcement!! I love vintage tea towels (and cooking) so it got my attention… and here I am!
Best of luck to you! (and me!)
Beth, you know I loved the prints and now these adorable towels! So fun!!
I’m most looking forward to making the Roasted Chickpeas because I love them!
Hey Nina!!! You are one of the winners!! YAY!! Look for an email from me later today with the details and I will need for you to send me your address and color preference.
Thanks so much for entering and for your nice words!
First of all… I love these designs! They feel like they belong in a beautiful vintage kitchen! I recently started making pizza at home in an attempt to have a healthier version of what you get on the run. I cannot wait to make the Sun-Dried Tomato, Mozzarella, Fontina & Arugula Pizza!!! Thank you for a beautiful blog and healthy recipes!
Great giveaway Beth – those teas towels are gorgeous (and really useful). I’m not massively into cooking, but absolutely loving learning to bake and your Flourless Carrot Cake is definitely on the cards!
Your apple crisp is my favorite..so far…and I’m totally making the sweet potato and black bean stew next, it looks so good!
Hey guys, love the tea towels, my girl is gaga for them!
My favourite recipe is palicsinta, (Hungarian crepes), perfect for any meal, anytime depending on what you put in them, jam for breakfast, chocolate or strawberry sauce for desert or cottage cheese or sour cream for a snack. I remember my grandma making stacks upon stacks for us grandiose and I inherited her cookbook (written in Hungarian) and now I have them as a treat!
Thanks, Beth, for the reminder to enter! I love these. Tasty Yummies has inspired me to make smoothies every day for the last 2 weeks. I loved every smoothie post during your cleanse, but the peaches and cream is a stand-out. I also want to try your roasted chickpea recipe.
I’m looking forward to making the creamy broccoli soup. I usually make mine with cream but it’s a little too heavy.
I never thought to use beans – what a great idea! Thanks for the recipe.
We enjoyed visiting with you last weekend and can’t wait to see you and Mark again in March. The broccoli soup that you made us was so good. I have been wanting this soup all week so I’m definitely going to make it this weekend and I want to try the roasted chickpeas too…..talking about all this food is making me hungry and it’s only 9:30am……lol !!!!! Great job on the tea towels & prints, they are very nice 🙂
