Favorites List (Fall 2010) Recipe

A fall favorites list made up of a few things that have caught my attention or inspired me lately. It's a mish-mash of links, products, places, media and what-not that hopefully might inspire you as well.

Favorites List (Fall 2010)

I would like to share a new recipe with you right now, in fact I have one all ready to go. But I fear many of you have shifted into Thanksgiving mode. Meaning, if what I have to share isn't fit for the Thanksgiving table, you probably don't want to hear about it. And it's not. So I won't. Instead, I decided to write up a new favorites list - something I love doing. And for the handful of of you hitting this page today, still on the search for Thanksgiving inspiration, I'll kick off the list with a few personal favorites on that front:

- Here's an updated list of favorite vegetarian Thanksgiving recipes: Golden-Crusted Brussels Sprouts, Roasted Delicata Squash Salad, Vanilla Mashed Sweet Potatoes, Hazelnut & Chard Ravioli Salad, etc.

- Thinking I need to do more things like this in 2011.

- A perfect shade of blue.

- Podcast pick: The Monocle Weekly. What other podcasts should I be listening to? I like newsy/current event ones.

- Soup season is really on here. We had fog, rain, thunder and lightning last week. The soup in the photo up above became a favorite this year. This one. I've cooked it at least ten times. If you have Moro East, give it a go.

- Daydream real estate listing number 1, and number 2. I stumbled on that second one the other day and it's all about the location and setting - it's surrounded by the magical Grace Marchant Gardens, just below Coit Tower.

- Favorite stocking stuffer: June Taylor's Candied Citrus Peels

- Saw this movie in Rome. And this and this since I've been home.

- Would love to stay here someday.

- I like to add a pinch of this to my eggs, and also to the occasional vinaigrette for some extra herby-green dimension. Oh! And I just noticed the Herriott Grace rolling pins at Terrain, part of their Holiday Heirloom Collection.

- To my family, I would love a subscription to this and/or this.

- Gabi's lovely food site - I've shortlisted this sweet tahini dressing.

- Think of the fun to be had around this.

- Tempted by this fancy pants water filter.

- My walls are mostly white, but I love seeing fun/funky wallpapers.

- Vintage cookie cutters on Etsy. Or Cameras.

- As as we head into the holidays, I keep reminding myself of this inspiring concept/challenge.

And last of all, here's a short update about our Kiva / 101 Cookbooks lending team. We've somehow managed to make $111,000 in micro loans together. Nearly 4000 loans since we set things up in September 2008. Amazing. For those of you participating, have a peek at your balance, you may have funds sitting there that could be re-allocated. -h

I'll be making your cornmeal crunch recipe for my contribution to the family Thanksgiving feast I loved this post. It was nice to see other interests of yours outside of the food realm.


oh thanks fo the referral to honet fare, what a beautiful site!

alana (at) the food

Heidi, I agree with others: can't go wrong with NPR. Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! (the news show quiz) is hilarious, too bad it is only once a week. :)


When I visited SF a few years ago, we walked up to Coit Tower via the Greenwich Steps and then back down the Filbert Steps - those gardens blew me away, they were so lush and beautiful - what a gorgeous thing to have in the middle of a modern city...... With regard to the rest of your list, I too, LOVE that chair, would like to see those films and wish on a regular basis that we had Anthropologie stores here in Australia.......!


We need more of your favourites. So much inspiration!


That dinner party under the Golden Gate bridge looks magical!

Your daydream real estate listing number 2 is my ideal home (well, plus one extra bedroom)! Only, the price is not so ideal, and so the day-dreaming continues.. Clean lines, spacious, minimalist in furniture terms but maximising on natural materials and light. - all my feelings on interior decoration in one place. I will be saving this page for when we go house-hunting :)


Fantastic post. Thanks a lot for sharing, and happy Thanksgiving

Elisabet Figueras

Thanks for sharing this list! and have a happy thanksgiving :-)


The New Yorker has some good podcasts; I like the Political Scene for current events chat.


I like when you post something so random like this! It's kind of fun. Good thing that books aren't included in the 100 things list.

Love this list! I'd seen some of those cookie cutters on Etsy...too awesome.

Jessica @ bake me away!

Dinner on a beach with the evening and the golden gate bridge setting the ambiance. Lovely.

Laura @ SweetSavoryPlanet

I just painted my bedroom that shade of blue! Ha -- love it too. :)

Ali @ Gimme Some Oven

As one of those (non Americans) not being in a Thanksgiving mode, I am anxious to hear about your new recipe. But I must admit that your Thanksgiving menu sounds very appetizing.

Bogna@Pots and Frills

I've been wanting those cookies cutter for ever!

A Teenage Gourmet

i'm a podcast fiend. here are my faves in the newsy/current event catagory: freakanomics radio; planet money; on the media; real time with bill maher; slate political gabfest; fresh air.... no suprizes there, i guess, but am always searching for new ones that can live up to the NPR/PRI gold standards... i'll be curious to see what folks post.


Oh thank goodness you posted what the soup in the photo is. When I came to this page and saw the picture my first thought was literally how cruel it would be if you didn't tell us what that delicious looking soup is. Now I just need the book.


I adore wallpapers too but always find a reason to keep my walls bare. I guess I'm scared I would get tired of them quickly.


Umm, LOVE the Berin chair. Just gorgeous. And I had no idea June Taylor made stuff other than those incredible preserves! What a gorgeous array of possible holiday gifts she's got on that website. Thanks for all the great links, Heidi!
