My oh my… where does the time go? I have been meaning to post but have been so busy these last few days. So here’s a recommendation that I’m kind of obsessed with (is this becoming a theme?)
I like to cook, but that doesn’t mean I do it very often. Sometimes it’s expensive, sometimes there’s just not enough time (like the last few days), but when there is time and when there is (some) money, I’ll do it up right and try to find a yummy recipe to eat with a friend or two. Which leads me to the last book I read (back when I had some time to read).. It’s called “A Homemade Life” and it’s written by Molly Wizenberg. Very well written and there’s a story behind every recipe (did I mention a recipe in each and every chapter too!) I was captivated, but maybe it’s because I’m one of those people who can read recipes like novels. Even if i’m not in the kitchen. I like to read over every ingredient, think about whether I have it in my own cabinets, or where I can get it, imagine each step in my mind and then I imagine a kitchen table full of friends eating up every last bit of it. Dinner parties in my mind. There, I said it. I’m going to have to find some time for it, make it a reality, with real food and real friends and REAL eating. Ok, goal for next week: make a meal for me and at LEAST one other person. (A, I might be looking at you)
Back to the book! Molly Wizenberg runs a food blog! It’s called Orangette, and I actually hadn’t even heard of it until I picked up her book a few weeks ago at Skylight (indie bookstore plug), but I’m very glad I did and now it’s full of dog-eared pages. Recipes that I will share with you, I’m sure, in future posts! Go forth! Read!
(Look at all those dog-eared pages! Yummy-ness!)
