The first favorites list of the new year – I bought a stack of books mentioned in the New York Times Notable list, and look forward to working my way through them in the coming months. Let me know if there is anything you read over the holidays I should add. In fact, let me know if you have any favorites of your own that you think I’d like. It’s great when you all give me book, and magazine, travel, recipe, and link ideas. I find myself discovering little pockets and places on the internet I had no idea existed, so thanks in advance. I have a particularly brilliant recipe, from a friend, to post a bit later in the week – just need a bit more time to process the photos. To my east coast friends, stay bundled. Thinking of you all! xo -h
