A morning run

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

I stepped outside my building this morning at 6:15am, my shoes laced tight for my first morning run in ages. I could barely believe it myself. But then I got to Central Park, and turning the corner on the reservoir, I looked across the water and saw this:



And somehow, it was all worth it. Glorious--this city of ours.

Food


I'm a glutton for lemons, I have 5 in my kitchen now and need to come up with something other than my usual lemon recipes. Helene of Tartelette blows me away as usual with lemon cakelets with vanilla bean cream, oh and there are some chocolate pots de creme in there too. Another one of my weaknesses.

I enjoy reading Donal Skehan's blog because he's Irish, a talented photographer, and well, pretty cute too. He also bakes a mean chocolate cake.

For some reason, I grew up with a Christmas morning tradition of broiled grapefruit halves with brown sugar scattered over the top. I was reminded of it when I saw this recipe on The Forest Feast. Although, Erin uses cinnamon to give it an extra sweetness.

Sarah and her sister took a trip to Mexico. Get a recipe for Baja fish tacos while you gaze at her incredible shots of the Sea of Cortez.

If you've ever wondered how to make an egg look all perfect in a photo, then look no further. Jessica at How Sweet it Is has you covered. This is not a recipe for eating eggs, but just cooking them so they're super clean for food photography!



On a non-related food note, is anyone else excited for the NBC show Ready for Love? I'm missing the Bachelor, and Ready for Love will fill in nicely.
