1. I love my front porch. It’s my favorite place to sit, read, take business calls, drink a coffee (or a cocktail), and watch my neighborhood. Long live porch sitting!

2. This past winter I contributed 50 recipes to a DK project- The Meat Cookbook, which came out this month!

3. It takes a lot of bravery to be totally honest like this. The past few years I have often struggled with the balance of blogging and freelance and finding a way to remember the joy when sometimes it feels like you’re just gutting through your to-do list because you have to, not because you want to. It’s a result of blogging weekly for years on end, and I completely respect John and Sherry for putting so eloquently what I have often felt (and know a lot of other fellow bloggers have felt).

4. How fake is food styling?

5. I always knew Italian women had it right.

6. How pimento cheese became an iconic Southern food.

7. I bought my first iPod in 2004, right after I graduated from high school. Its name was Chanandeler Bong and he served me faithfully until 2008, when I bought my first iPhone. Rest in peace, iPods.

8. Do you love food festivals?

9 The Evil Reign of the Red Delicious

10. I remember, very clearly, sitting in Señor Moreno’s Spanish class when one of the Beason sisters, Carrie maybe, came to tell us that a plane had flown into the WTC. Later, watching the videos of the second plane over and over again, I remember noticing just how blue the sky was that day.

    Thanks for these links! The food styling one was interesting and I think it’s good that it’s moving towards more authenticity.

    And Italians def do have it right. So many of us fear pasta, don’t we? In reasonable portions and cutting out the super rich sauces, it can be included in our weekly meals without risk of packing on the pounds. And it’s so worth it!
