Favorites List (January 2012)

Favorites List (January 2012) Recipe

Hi everyone, how about a favorites list? I feel like I have enough good stuff to roll it out a bit early this month. Not to mention, it'll give me a chance to focus on jotting down a recipe for the bread I've been baking every few days for the past couple of weeks. This bread is dark and hearty, yeast-leavened, and perfect for soup-dunking. Or crouton making. Or tartine broiling. I think you'll like, or at least I hope you will. In the meantime,

- A Polaroid a day for 18 years.

- Sequin photobooths.

- Fantasy real estate listing.

- Joan Didion's packing list.

- On the list to cook: this, and this.

- EAMES: The Architect and the Painter

- Revisitng this soup.

- Anna's Daughters' Chocolate Rye Bark

- Get-away.

- This photo series.

- This lovely lady.

- A box of dirt.

- Bookmark this for the holidays next year.

- Fireworks.

- Teenage Bedrooms: It was Miami Vice meets the interior of a van...

- The Woodmans.

- Bookmark: Tamarind Margarita.

- Midway through watching this.

- This exhibit. And, coming up - this one.

Bread to come in a few... -h

Lead photo: One of the nicest sunsets I've seen lately, at the park just a short walk from my house. The air has been brisk, and crisp, and the skies so clear.

  • Gorgeous photo, Heidi! Duboce Park is one of my favorite spots in the city. I hope you're enjoying 2012 already!

  • One of my January favorites is your Baked Oatmeal recipe, I finally made it with the amaretto soaked raisins and almonds variation last weekend and it was incredible-my family preferred it to the berry version (which is delicious as well). Thanks for help expanding my cooking repertoire, Supernatural Everyday is definitely my favorite new cookbook of 2011.

  • Ooo, I used to live in that building in the photo! Loved taking my dog to Alamo Square park. Great links as always!

  • The story about the box of dirt may or may not have made me a little teary! Talk about buried treasure--thanks for sharing.

  • Seriously brilliant photography. And I love the polaroid a day collection. I once tried to take a photo a day for a year, but didn't make it past week two. *Needs more perseverance in 2012! Thanks for sharing!

  • Your lead photo allows me the opportunity to extend my gratitude for your 2009 SF list. Husband and I returned yesterday from our honeymoon (five days in Tahoe, four days in SF), and we used your list as a loose guide to the city. We scratched off a number of your recommendations and found some highlights of our own. Our last dinner was at Pizzeria Delfina and Bi-Rite ice cream for dessert. Already looking forward to our next visit.

  • I love Joan Didion, and am delighted to see that, even while packing like, she chose to include the bourbon and cigarettes.

  • Ok, I am already excited for that dark and hearty soup dunking bread. I'm making soup after soup and it's always fun to have a new bread to pair it with. I'm also realizing you have a new blog design. I love it. It's very subtle and simple.

  • stunning lead photo. I have printed it off and posted it on my wall where I am working in the far, frozen north of Canada. It warms me when I look at it.

  • When I saw your lead photo, I thought of Italy for some reason. Love the light and the silhouettes of the animals and people. I am definitely in soup mode these days. Good idea to revisit.

  • What a gorgeous lead photo-makes me want to just get out there for a nice long walk. I too am looking forward to the bread post. :)

  • Fuh-buh-lus list! That soup (that you're revisiting) made me faint just now.

  • oooh- I'm already excited for the bread recipe!

  • Where did you find the blog with the 1 polaroid a day for 13 years? It's genius!!!

  • I can't believe it's your monthly list time already. December flew by in a crazy blur. Love the links; and I need the Tamarind Margarita. Asap.

  • What a beautiful lead photo... amazing! And can't wait to hear about that bread recipe. I've been on a real bread making kick lately!
