  • Thanks for including my write up of Palazzo Margherita in your list of favorites. Hope you get to visit it some time soon!

  • I love the scrambled egg technique and look forward to your new store.

  • Thank you so much for compiling these lists, I always find tons of inspiration! Let me know if Cairo is ever on your list of places to visit!

  • Heidi, I thought you might find this mid-century subdivision of houses in a suburb of Columbus Ohio, named Rush Creek Village, of interest. I grew up near this area and had a good friend who owned one of the original homes, built to be affordable for people such as Ohio State University professors and others. Here is one home: http://www.rushcreekroundhouse.com/ Check out the photos!! I was fortunate to became friends with the designer of the homes for a while. He was not an architect, but worked with Frank Lloyd Wright on some of his projects. Van Fossen designed his first home when he was 19. This is a wonderful development more people should be aware of. It's on the National Register of Historic Places. Another link from article in New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2004/06/24/garden/lost-and-found-obscurity-becomes-it.html?pagewanted=all&src=pm You can find other photos online.

  • thank you for this list. i just peeked at the book you're reading and am intrigued. do you like it so far? i'm dedicating this sunday to going through your archives :)

  • Once you finish "Wild," consider picking up "Once Upon a River" by Bonnie Jo Campbell. I'm devouring it even faster than the first.

  • Thank you so much Heidi for your link. I ADORE your lists but never in a million years dreamt that I'd be IN one.

  • Great link: interview with Tamar Adler. An Everlasting Meal was a most inspiring read!

  • Genius scrambled poached eggs idea. We're getting at least three eggs a day from our tiny flock so I will try this idea out very soon. There are all manner of hidden gems in Food52.

    HS: agreed!

  • I need rhubarb beer jam! I recently just tried my hand at canning. Hot pepper jelly. I need beer jam though...sounds perfect :)

  • You've got me, Quitokeeto? Signed up, totally intrigued. + I owe you big thanks, made popsicles for friends with a riff on your rosewater rhubarb syrup - brought the house down. Thanks so much!

  • All awesome favorites! I especially like the rhubarb beer jam! ;) Hope you're having a relaxing weekend.

  • I have been making those poached scrambled eggs, I love them. And I made a rhubarb brown sugar jam recently--next up, thanks to the link above, rhubarb-beer jam! I love the diverse flavors I've gotten to know thanks to you, and I look forward to this one. :)

  • "Quitokeeto"? What might it be... I signed up with high anticipation - the name is super squeaky, btw :) Also, the mosaic pic is gorgeous. I loved those I saw in Chefchaouen and Fez. I so want to go to Morocco again! Lastly, I am making both your bran muffins and your frittata tonight. You make me happier in many different ways. Thank you, thank you.

  • I love your favourites list! Can't wait to work my way through this.

  • What a nice favorites list. I bet you Got home with so much inspiration. Nice weekend to you!

  • I *knew* that wall felt familiar somehow! I used to live in Morocco and miss the mosaics there so badly. How was your trip there? Did you just spend time in Marrakesh or did you get a chance to travel around more?
