I'm back from my adventures in the Southwest, but I'm going to take a break from posting to my blog for a couple weeks. I promise I'll be back soon with more recipes and projects. In the meantime, here are some things I'm loving right now that are worth checking out:
Plenty by Diana Henry. We've been cooking out of this one a lot, and it's a keeper.
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. I picked this up at Sante Fe's Collective Works bookstore when my Kindle broke on the trip (side note: Books never break, I like this about them). It's an unusual and ontriguing book that made me cry (in the best way possible, of course).
Feist's Metals album. I wasn't crazy about this at first, but after hearing her perform live in Marfa, I have a new appreciation for this disc. Give it a listen and let it grow on you--it might just be the best thing she's ever done.
Mountain Man. These gals were the opening act (and back-up singers) for Feist. They're fantastic and sound unlike any other band I know.
Painter Elaine Coffee, whose work we saw at te S. R. Brennen Galleries in Santa Fe, is a new favorite.
