  • Hi Heidi, I love your site, love making the time to browse through your favorites & have been cooking your recipes for almost 8 years. We are traveling to Japan for a few months this winter and wondered if you've made or would make a list of your favorite spots there? I am interested in cooking classes as well, but my research has brought me to expensive classes that don't feel right. Any tips? Thanks so much, Lily

    • Hi Lily - My Tokyo list needs updating, but it might be a good jumping off point. Be sure to visit Naoshima if you can. Also, poke around on Beth Kirby's Local Milk site (and Instagram), she spends a good amount of time in Japan.

  • The Starbucks article hit so close to home. With my son in and out of hospitals for months at a time for the last almost 2 years, Starbucks's lattes and a guarantee of a certain atmosphere, plus very kind employees who got to know me because I was there almost every day, sometimes twice a day, saved me. Starbucks has it down. I support independent coffee shops when I can, but when I want to be in control of something, just one thing, amongst so much sadness and terror, Starbucks does it.
