The Friday List: #1

Books and Tulips

Happy Friday!

The Friday list is a collection of links to interesting stuff I stumble upon throughout the week.
I hope to make it a permanent feature on the blog.
Enjoy this maiden edition and I hope it provides reading material for a fabulous weekend.

I’ve never been a big collector of cookbooks but suddenly, I’m eager to tear into Ottolenghi’s follow up to Plenty, this Salad Samurai cookbook, and the Vibrant Table, I hear the description ‘visually stunning’ about that one a lot.

I love lentils and I love okra, I see this gumbo in my future. I feel like you can never go wrong with lentil and okra, they make an usual but wonderful pair.

A lovely tour of Paris’ posh 16th arrondissement, I can’t wait to go back and explore

Wave Hill looks like such a beautiful place. Why didn’t I know this place exists in New York?

A practical kitchen that is equal part airy, useful, adorable and budget-friendly.

Are we using ‘busyness’ to avoid introspection?

The poor bridges can’t take the love no more! With Love without Locks, Paris encourages selfies instead!

I’m seriously making this grilled peach sundae this weekend, I just need to get my hands on some of those insanely delicious peaches from the Okanagan.

Nice is nice this time of year, I want to go to there!

And finally, my good friend B. made baharat chickpea salad. Yum!

      Thanks B. It takes lots of practice and stalking some of my favourite food photographers :). That said, I’m really digging your spiced apple cocktail photos – sooo lovely! Also, can’t wait to see what you do with your okra!
