If you’re anything like us, your bedroom is probably lined with tons and tons of (yet-to-be-read) magazines. Even so, we couldn’t resist adding six more to our list for the holidays. Check them out below.
Paris Review: This literary gem is the best for holiday travel (plus, they have an awesomely retweetable Twitter handle).
Foam: This breathtaking photography magazine is an excellent coffee-table book—and also doubles as a great gift.
Kinfolk: Each and every issue just makes us want to jump inside the pages. Based on the concept of gathering, this magazine features great food, unique travel destinations and super dream homes.
Apartamento: This Italian-based mag delivers interior inspiration via the homes of various characters the editors come across.
Dossier: This Brooklyn-based magazine gives us a perfect dose of art, fashion and creative writing.
The Gentlewoman: From the folks who brought us Fantastic Man, this sophisticated fashion magazine is full of pleasantly unexpected style features.

Pizza has to be one of my favorite meals to serve at a casual dinner party: Everyone likes to get involved in the preparation, so you can spend more time chatting up guests. Plus, you don’t actually have to go through the trouble of making your own dough and waiting for it to rise; your local pizza place will sell you a delicious fresh ball, no problem (mine charges $4 for a large, which is enough for about three homemade pies!).
To keep things interesting, I always choose a few varieties—this time, the classic margherita, the potato pizza and the deliciously meaty prosciutto/taleggio/arugula pizza. Here’s how to recreate these tasty party treats:

P.S. If you’re headed to Miami for Art Basel, don’t miss her exhibit at Primary Projects (where you can also snatch up a few Rebeca Raney x Madewell pieces).
