While the Upper East Coast was having a blizzard, we experienced days of a cold, windy rain... the kind of weather that sends one to the kitchen again and again for hot beverages.
Since it was a good weekend to stay inside, I spent Sunday afternoon doing a little redecorating here on the blog. I hope you like the new (thinking-of-summer) Header. It brings a hope of May and flowers and green grass.
I had to remove some of what was on the sidebar, at least temporarily. Although the Pantry links remain and can be found by scrolling down.
Here are glimpses of my world this past week...

Reading and Re-reading
I like to read Tracey McBride's Frugal Luxuries and Frugal Luxuries by the Season (not shown) at least a couple times a year. They are among my all time favorite books about living a beautiful life on a budget, as I tell Tracey all the time! :)
My evenings have been spent perusing both The Little Paris Kitchen and Homemade... two gorgeously wonderful cookbooks with lots of yummy recipes already bookmarked. I gave Homemade to Elisabeth for her birthday (she turned eleven and she's a third generation foodie). Both she and her mom enjoy it as much as I do.
The Enchanted Barn was a lovely gift. There is nothing like a Grace Livingston Hill book to read for relaxation.
Reading and Watching
I adore The Little Paris Kitchen so I was thrilled when the book was finally available to the American audience (non-metric edition, of course).
I've been watching the show on The Cooking Channel, except when I watch it again on You Tube to figure out how to make a recipe. I probably will still do so even though I have them in print. She's just so entertaining...
