new year pretzels

New year, new recipes! We made these soft pretzels on New Year's Day, a wonderful project for our now 3-year-old, and a lovely foil to all that holiday sweetness. Thank you, 3191 Miles Apart, for a wonderful recipe! Find it here.

The most incredible footage of the reef break Teahupo'o, off the coast of Tahiti. It's lovely to see artistry meet nature meet cuckoobananas surfers. Hats off to all.

Nigel Slater: Eating Together

What a treat to see Nigel Slater in his wonderful BBC documentary series, Eating Together. His cookbooks are the loveliest, and it's a pleasure to find that his spoken word is just as charming as those he has written. Enjoy.

vintage japanese matchboxes

My Mom spent her high school years in Japan, and has a wonderful collection of matchboxes from that time. Many of the boxes are made of wood and papered over with washi. Aside from the graphic appeal, they've been a touching memento and reminder of that time and place. What treasures!
