Good morning! I hope that you had a great week, it was a wild week for weather all over the nation. Yesterday many of my friends in the Midwest had a snow day, in April, I hope that Spring comes back soon. I do not have any plans this weekend aside from visiting the garden center to get my plants and flowers for my containers. What about you?
I hope that you enjoy my finds this week.
This Chicken Enchilada Pasta Salad from the Cookie Rookie looks like a great salad to have all Spring and Summer.

I have always wanted to make risotto but it always seems so complicated that is until I discovered this Baked Lemon Risotto from Joy the Baker.

Aren’t these Bunny Sugar Cookies from Sugar and Charm cute?
Peanut butter lovers you will want to eat an entire pan of these Peanut Butter Egg Brownies.
From her Italian American childhood through singlehood, raising and feeding a growing family, divorce, and a new marriage to food writer Michael Ruhlman, Ann Hood has long appreciated the power of a good meal. Growing up, she tasted love in her grandmother’s tomato sauce and dreamed of her mother’s special-occasion Fancy Lady Sandwiches. Later, the kitchen became the heart of Hood’s own home. She cooked pork roast to warm her first apartment, used two cups of dried basil for her first attempt at making pesto, taught her children how to make their favorite potatoes, found hope in her daughter’s omelet after a divorce, and fell in love again—with both her husband and his foolproof chicken stock.
I just got my copy of Save Me the Plums by Ruth Reichl and I cannot wait to start it this weekend.
When Condé Nast offered Ruth Reichl the top position at America’s oldest epicurean magazine, she declined. She was a writer, not a manager, and had no inclination to be anyone’s boss. Yet Reichl had been reading Gourmet since she was eight; it had inspired her career. How could she say no?
This is the story of a former Berkeley hippie entering the corporate world and worrying about losing her soul. It is the story of the moment restaurants became an important part of popular culture, a time when the rise of the farm-to-table movement changed, forever, the way we eat. Readers will meet legendary chefs like David Chang and Eric Ripert, idiosyncratic writers like David Foster Wallace, and a colorful group of editors and art directors who, under Reichl’s leadership, transformed stately Gourmet into a cutting-edge publication. This was the golden age of print media—the last spendthrift gasp before the Internet turned the magazine world upside down.
Retro Dress for Spring.
I love this dress!
I posted this gingham tunic from Talbots a few weeks ago and many people emailed me to tell me that they ordered it and loved it. I just wanted to let you know it is on sale for 30%.
Liberty Fabric mules from Sperry! I think these would look great all summer long with white jeans.
I just got this lemon platter for Spring/Summer entertaining.
Easter plates for your Easter dinner!
That’s it for this week. I hope that you share your books, recipes, movies, podcasts ad whatever else you found this week.
Have a wonderful weekend.
