This past week we had a fantastic opportunity to take over the Instagram of UncommonGoods, a company we have been fans of in the past and had previously had an opportunity to work with on some product promotions, which resulted in some great looking recipes and product photos that the folks at Uncommon really loved. Uncommongoods is a retailer that offers tons of unique artisan and designer items perfect for our sense of style and a company that is devoted to making a difference, be it via their commitment to sustainability or their commitment to providing an outlet for artists and craftsmen to bring their products to market. This post contains sponsored content brought to you by UncommonGoods. We received free products to review, but all opinions presented here are 100% our own. For further information please see our Disclaimer page.

Taking over an Instagram feed other than ours was a first for us (and to be honest a little intimidating!) but with a chance to share our work with a bunch of new viewers and a way bigger audience, we wanted to bring some really beautiful ideas to Uncommongoods’ readers. We started out with a really awesome taco kit, which we made some vegetarian tacos for:

We also made a really great batch of Beer Brittle Chocolate Bark and a nice Stout and Champagne cocktail that we served on this cool Milk and Cookies Dunk and Drink set:

We also had a chance to check out this really nice Stoneware Butter Crock:

Of course this gorgeous Butter Crock had to have something that tasted as awesome as the crock looked, so we came up with a really delicious Blueberry Thyme butter. Incorporating fresh blueberries and fragrant thyme, this compound butter has a sweet and savory flavor that really worked as a spread on toast or especially French Toast. We got some great shots of a delicious butter in a beautiful crock!
