Life is beautiful because life currently includes 54 degree weather. I freed my light jacket from its prison (my closet) and willingly ventured outdoors; can you believe it? I saw so many bikers and joggers, and kids riding tricycles, and dogs pulling on their leashes, and neighbors that I haven't seen in months emerging from their cocoons. It's been a magical sight t0 behold. But this glorious Spring-like weather is fleeting, so if you've missed the teeny-tiny window of non-freezing weather, now's a great time to catch up on some reading.
Here's what I've been diggin' this week:
Old Hollywood Glamour + Food = Love. Here’s what they served at the very first Oscar’s.
I’m all about nice-smellin homes. The Kitchn’s got some nice tips!
As Saveur Magazine perfectly put it: “We don’t talk about Midwestern food enough.” I wholeheartedly agree. Sugar Cream Pie anyone?
I’m on a The Office kick as of late, so seeing BJ Novak tweet out his list of never-ending ideas for Michael Scott via The List App, was all kinds of awesome.
Have you heard of the Swedish equivalent to tea time, Fika? This should totally catch on.
Speaking of Tea Time...When Britain Fought Against the Tyranny of Tea Breaks.
We should all be out buying the latest issue of Bon Appetit. Why, you ask? Because it was shot ENTIRELY on iPhones! I can get behind that.
Real talk: all I’ve ever really wanted is Meryl Streep’s kitchen in It’s Complicated; Memorable Kitchens in Cinematic History.
If you need me, I'll be becoming one with nature for the next 5 hours.
