A few bits and bobs


It's a gorgeous Fall day today in NYC and I am about to head outside to enjoy it, but before I go I thought I would share a few things I am loving and/or looking forward to this season, culinary and otherwise. Have a great weekend everyone!

The best Halloween movie of all time

Some killer cakes on Instagram (via Bon Appetit) featuring a few by yours truly

I'm going to a pie party soon, but can't decide on a recipe. Maybe I'll make a riff on this one.

The new home collection from Zara is crazy good

I can't wait to head upstate to go apple picking with this gal

Watch the adorable Dorie Greenspan  pack for Paris 

Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's new book  Jerusalem looks amazing, this recipe sounds incredibly delicious

I've been dreaming of this roast pumpkin with cheese fondue, thanks to Jen Causey.

I wish Laura lived closer so she could make me this salad

I love this interview with Mandy Patinkin about The Princess Bride, one of my all time favorites and Arrested Development's new season will be "bird heavy". Start practicing your chicken dance now.
