literary food blog, for readers with good taste.

The TBR List: February 7


- I made Mongolian beef (pictured above) for dinner on Monday. It's perfect except the recipe forgot salt, which it definitely needs.

- Archana from my soCal'd life made food for Queen Latifah and Curtis Stone! And she was nice enough to share the recipe on her blog. Go girl.

- Sewing DIYs never tempt me but this one may be the exception.

- Anthromorphized paperbacks

- If you like food more than you like people, peep these valentines.

- The Top Chef finale was this week and I still don't care. This isn't a link; I just wanted to say that.

- Vanilla bean sugar scrub. Le yum. Le smooth.

- A good explainer for vegan vs. plant-based, something I've been wondering about lately.

- Emoji poetry is the real deal.
