Hello, there. It's been a long week. I baked two cakes:chocolate and carrot in preparation for a cake contest tomorrow, helped Luke recover from a mean cold, worked and somewhere in the middle of all that, I found a few things I thought you might like. 52 weeks in film: week 4 A list for Friday: a mix of this and that to get you through the day. I've been... listening to this mix made by bryan of the blue hour loving this polaroid made by little postcards reading Labyrinth, a short story written by Roberto Bolano published in a recent New Yorker issue—the story is pure genius—told from a narrator who as he looks at a photograph, imagines the entangled lives of the eight people seated at the table watching how to make classic pesto over at Kinfolk planning what to cook first from these books Inspired Vegan, Ancient Grains for Modern Meals, Bean by Bean, Ripe (available in March) thinking this gooey apple upside-down cake and this lemon ricotta pine nut cake (that Jess introduced me to) both deserve a place at the table mixing starter together for this walnut & rye sourdough bread (if you haven't broken into the sourdough bread scene yet, here's your chance—check out Tara's sourdough starter to learn the basics) wishing for an iPhone but for those of you who have one, you'll want to check out Stephanie Roberts' new book, The Art of iPhonography filled with apps and plenty of how-to's to get you snappin' away More cake and photo talk soon.
