Berkley's Finest

I was lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic meal at Chez Panisse when I visited Berkley, CA a few years ago. So I was thrilled to find these photos of the 40th Anniversary Celebration.








Cheers to you Alice!! Congrats on 40 fab years! via the selby.

Required Reading - Fall 2011

One of my greatest pleasures in life, is reading a great book right before bed. Preferably, the sheets will be white and cripsy and there will be rain outside. The window will be open and there will be a lavender scented candle flickering nearby (but not near any curtains, of course).

I keep a big stack next to my bed, and when one is done, it's on to the next. Here's what's on my required list this Fall.


1. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
2. Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann
3. The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan
4. Blood, Butter and Bones by Gabrielle Hamilton
5. I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

What's on your required reading list?

Ladurée takes Manhattan

The ever sweet Nicolette Mason, has some even sweeter photographs of the newly opened Ladurée, located a short subway ride uptown. These photos are making me drool. I can't wait to head uptown for a box of these French beauties (the raspberry and pistachio are my favorites...). The best part is the boxes they come in are totally reusable. I use mine to store jewelry and make-up.

Make sure you head uptown to visit this delicious destination, and make sure you visit Nicolette's blog for even more tasty photos.

As if Kate Moss wasn't already perfect, she goes ahead and has possibly the most perfect wedding in all the land.

Fried Green Tomatoes




One of my favorite late summer treats are green tomatoes. This past week, I made fried green tomato and egg sandwiches for breakfast. What a life! If you want to try some, this is an easy recipe.

summer gifs

Lucky for me, the only thing Irene ruined was my plans to visit Nantucket for the weekend. So, since Labor Day is now upon us, I figured I'd take a look back at my summer, through gifs.
