Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? Yeah .. me neither. But I did watch the red carpet coverage .. duh! Here are some of my faves in a few different categories.
Tatiana Maslany - The star of Orphan Black just looked incredible. I would love to wake up and find her dress hanging in my closet. BTW .. have you seen Orphan Black? I just watched the first episode over the weekend and am kind of obsessed already.
- Start digging into The Round House by Louise Erdrich - this month’s book club pick
- Savory baking - I’m thinking an onion tart .. I have so many onions I needs to use
- Visit the Shake Shack in Harvard Square - I’m so excited to have this place just a 10 minute bus ride away
- And of course .. snuggling with the pup .. and Chad too if he isn’t too fidgety
I first noticed the ABJ Glassworks creations while over on the Bleubird blog. I immediately thought, I need to have one of those, and then promptly forgot about them until I remembered them again a week or so later only to forget about them again. It’s a vicious cycle.
My sister-in-law Julia is due to have a baby girl this February and she asked me for a few cookbook recommendations to help her in the next month with prepping food before the baby comes. Here are three books I have used over and over.
Baking Illustrated - Some of you may already know this, but while in grad school I completed an internship with America’s Test Kitchen. They produce the namesake show along with two magazines and numerous cookbooks. Baking Illustrated is by far the best baking cookbook I have used. EVER. The recipes are always top notch.
