Simple, The Easiest Cookbook in the World

6th February 2017


Have you heard about Simple, The Easiest Cookbook in the World? I read about it in someone’s comments and ordered a copy. I’m so impressed by the layout.


No recipe has more than six ingredients, and each of them is pictured.


Every recipe also has a photo of the finished product so you know in advance if it looks yum. So genius.


Do you know about it? Any favorite recipes therein? Or do you have throw-it-together recipes like this that you use to whip up quick meals? Tell, please.

Today is lunch with an old friend I haven’t seen since I ran into him at a Paris flea market, and dinner with Brad’s bestie and his new(ish) love. This weekend we’re joining the Women’s March in San Francisco with some friends, and Sunday we have many plants that need potting. What are you up to? Are you joining in any civic unrest? Or does resting in general sound better? Take care of yourself. Some good links for you:

Sunken, 600-year-old Buddha emerges from water in China. This is my jam.

“Surround yourself with people who are doers and who are positive. If you’re going to be influenced by people, both consciously and subconsciously, it may as well be people that are smart, talented, and fun to be around.” Justina Blakeney’s Meditation on Creativity

Eat your enemies faces.

Dogs keep committing suicide by leaping off Overtoun Bridge. (via Atlas Obscura)
