Things that made me think, laugh, or develop wanderlust:
Did you ever want to be a superhero? Here’s an illustrated step-by-step guide.
I could spend days looking through this treasure trove of vintage newspapers via google.
Great use of space in this NYC microloft!
The most beautiful food blog you’ll ever see – Manger by Mimi Thorisson. It’s like a fairytale come to life. Gorgeous photos, a stunning writer, and charm up the wazoo. Prepare to swoon.
Tongue-in-cheeky food photography tips from another blog I love for very different reasons – Dimly Lit Meals For One. Published in The Guardian, after all. Too bad that piece missed the “honest archivist of food” aspect, among other things. If you read Glass Half Full by David Rakoff and found it joyful and uplifting, you’ll love Dimly Lit. Don’t look if you have a weak stomach or lack a sense of humor. Humour, that is. It’s very British.
Congrats to Jennifer Blome on her not-retirement from KSDK! Jennifer is one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with. Now she’s going to the dogs . . . at the Animal Protective Association of Missouri.
In case you missed it, I shared recipes for Banana Bread, Meyer Lemon Cake, Almond Shortbread, Vegan Chocolate Orange Scones, Vegan Sticky Buns, and Gluten Free Loaf Bread. One of the most popular posts this month has been (lowers head) . . . another Girl Scout cookie hack, thanks to tumblr. The same thing posted on Facebook got almost no response. I just don’t know anymore.
Are you guys following March Madness? I’m talking muffins, of course. Look for a guest post at Gluten Free Easily this week. And, my favorite houseguest of all time insisted on writing a little something for me. It’ll be up here in a week or so.
One last bit – if you’re interested in taking a bread class, the next one will be Sunday, September 7, 2014 at Kitchen Conservatory. This class tends to sell out, so you’ll want to register quickly when the fall schedule is up. See you!
