Current Read: Cooking for Mr. Latte

I enjoy reading about food. I especially enjoy it because I have a short attention span and get bored with subjects. reading about food is short, sweet and inspiring. Cooking for Mr. latte may seem a bit silly but it eases me to sleep. A few pages of good writing followed by a recipe from a memorable meal and im happily ready for bed. I mean shes a food critic, how fun is that? The best thing about this kind of read is that I can read this book over and over again. Food never gets boring and Ill never remember all the recipes or food banter. Amanda Hesser writes a chapter about eating alone where she accounts of a great meal at Pearl Oyster bar in NYC. Ceasar Salad with English muffin croutons. de lish! Today, I log into NY times and find the very restaurant filling suit. you see my silly reads are very pertinent to today's culinary news.

Via New York Times. Statement? I say so. Mariyam did you make it? About 80 people woke up extra early to visit one of the country’s busiest intersections in search for serenity. Id imagine drivers being a bit distracted with the downward dog? read more at the front page

Rene Furterer Paris has an incredible sun care line to protect those tresses. Ive been using the Fluide Hydratant for about a week and at 90 spf, this super moisturizing spray is keeping me hydrated without weighing me down.

new obsession

Found this blog and I love it. Huge fan of Photography and food. I only wish I had more time for breakfast. I do love eating and arranging bitsy still lifes on plates but I guess my actions (sleeping in) have proven that perhaps sleeping is still #1. I will declare today that when I work in a more sit down, internet access environment I will begin blogging about my daily intake. Promise. This find seriously just made my day. I just love simply breakfast. Lets be friends!!!!
