It’s Wednesday, which means the day before Thursday, which kind of means it’s sort of getting nearer to the weekend but not quite. I’ve been meaning to share these links with you guys in some shape or form, and since it’s mid-week, I figure there’s no better time than now to give you something to procrastinate occupy your time with.  So go get your coffee/chai/afternoon snack, sit back, and enjoy! 1. THE WORLD’S BEST RESTAURANTS Yep, the list is out!

When I was younger, I was one of those weird kids who loved eating their greens. The greener, the better. I would devour things like broccoli and spinach, and I really liked brussels sprouts too—something my family didn’t totally understand. I’ve come to appreciate them more as an adult; the complexity of their flavor, how their little green leaves can be crunchy or soft, how they change color and become more vibrant when cooked.

I know some of you are freezing your mittens off in the polar vortex, and I don’t mean to show off—I really don’t—but the weather here right now is perfection (not so for most of the year, when it’s sweltering hot and you’re resigned to spending weeks on end indoors). We’ve had a couple of gloomy days, but otherwise it’s been warm with bright blue skies for most of the week. I’ve been taking advanta ... Read More

Did you guys have a good Easter? What did you get up to? I: ate too much chocolate, had a relaxed brunch with a friend, and then a nice little dinner at home with the husband. I’m excited about this week because Rols and I have plans to see old friends of ours from out of town, and I have a girls’ night in planned which should be a lot of fun. I spent today clearing out my fridge and getting organized for the week, and I found I had a ton of chili peppers! I bought a bunch this week after forgetting that I already had ... Read More
