January 22, 2016
Happy things to help pass the time as winter slowly keeps marching on:
Jacked up banana bread.
Some fairy tales are older than previously thought.
This version of mac 'n cheese sounds pretty amazing.
11 books you have to read in January. (or......anytime.)
A girlfriend just sent me a gift covered in Wrappily paper - do you know about this line of eco-friendly wrap? It's darling!!
Really cute make-your-own dream catcher. Julia wants one, and I looked around for some ready made options, but I think it might be more fun to really customize something homemade.
LOVE the look and sound of these herbal remedy teas!
These Parisian enamel lockets are beautiful.
"How I turned my kid into a reader."
Best cameras for kids.
Cool Book of the Week: 'My French Kitchen' by Joanne Harris and Fran Warde. I was so happy to discover that the author of 'Chocolat' had written a cookbook! Two of them actually. I've always loved the way Harris writes about food, specifically desserts, in her books, and I'm excited to read an actual cookbook of hers - filled with recipes that have been passed down for years in her family. One of the reviewers on Amazon claims to have made the chocolate cake recipe from the book every week, because she likes to have one slice every day. I've placed a hold on this one from my library to check it out. I want to see her spiced hot chocolate!
