Favorites List (January 2012) Recipe

The first favorites list of the new year - a list of things that have inspired, or caught my attention in the previous weeks.

Favorites List (January 2012)

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.

Holly (The Apiarist)

Oh my! I don't know where to start with this list!

Meghan @ Making Love In The Kitchen

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.


Lovely list. As always!

The Healthy Apple

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

Elissa @PoorMansFeast

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.

jackie @ main mama cooks

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.

Bev Weidner

Great list! I need some more soups in my life!

Katrina @ Warm Vanilla Sugar

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

Simply Life

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

Mike @TheIronYou

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.

Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga

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!
