Favorites List (3.25.14)

Apologies in advance, I feel like I should be posting this favorites list prior to the weekend, when people have a bit more time to stretch out and read longer-format pieces. I came across a lot of great articles this month, and put a selection of them into this list. I also couldn't resist a handful of recipes that caught my attention, and a few wildcards. Enjoy! -h

- The Dalai Lama's Ski Trip

- Arms Wide Open

- Trouble

- Sarah Kersten Fermentation Crocks (thx for the custom glaze SK!)

- 4-2-1 Vegetable Soup

- Reading: Finished this, starting this. Looking forward to this.

- Thinking these would make nice (personalized) gifts. Artifact Uprising

- Want to eat this, this, and a big yes to this as well.

- In good company....

- Judy Blume and Lena Dunham Curate a Reading List for You

I adore your favourite lists and so look forward to them. I methodically savour every link. I have only just started the list but had to say that the first thing on it - the Dalai Lama's ski trip has set the tone for my day. thank you so much.

Thank you !
Have been drooling over those fermentation crocks for a while now all the way here in the North-West of Ireland (lovely glaze indeed) could really imagine a line of them on a long shelf. One day…

Hi Heidi,
I love your blog and have both of your cookbooks. I love all of the links on your favorites lists too. I wonder, though, if you could set up the links so that, when you click on each, it opens into a separate window? It's easier to go through a list that way (without having to click back to 101cookbooks after following the link). Thanks!

HS: Hi Samantha - way back when, I used to have the links open a new window, but some people didn't like that (sometimes you can't win ;)...If you're on a Mac you can command-click (command = the propeller key), and it will open the link in a new tab. I use that method a lot. I'm sure there's an equivalent on the PC as well.

A fabulous list, Heidi. Like everyone else I love the Dalai lama post especially the last paragraph.

I am also tempted to make the roasted carrot in turmeric broth. Sounds delicious.

Thank you so much for sharing, Heidi.

Your favourites list is always intriguing. The HH Dalai Lama story was a gem.

Loved the story on the Dalai Lama. It was what I needed to read just before bed. Thank you.

Heidi - love this list ! The article about Trouble was fascinating.

Thanks for another great list. Especially the link to 4-2-1 soup - great tip! Hope you are enjoying the start of Spring.

I hope you love 'Goldfinch' as much as I did!

Thanks for posting the Trouble article. It was so inspirational and beautiful in the simplicity of the café menu and the transparent humanness of the people involved. So real and so wonderful. It made my day!

Thank you for Hemingways' list!

I'm jealous of anyone who gets to read The Goldfinch for the first time! It was one of the very best books I have ever read. I also recommend Rachel Kushner's The Flamethrowers - just finished, it was also really amazing.

Such an enlightening list, as always. Thank you! I loved the Dalai Lama's Ski Trip, an appreciated pause in the day. And I hope you love The Goldfinch as I did. For me it was a rare book that I couldn't put down, or had to steal away and keep reading.

Hi Heidi! Thanks for sharing. Have you checked out Soundings podcast? It's fun and really interesting and it also happens to be co-hosted by the lovely and talented Lisa Hannigan.
