The TBR List: Party!

The TBR List: Party!

We're having our first real dinner party this weekend! We've invited way too many people to fit comfortably in our one-bedroom apartment, and I've already gotten to work cooking up a slew of my favorite Pakistani foods. I'm totally channeling my mom with this one — using her favorite recipes and trying to recreate the thoughtful yet casual vibe she always manages with her parties at home. Wish me luck, and hope you have a great weekend!

- Whole Foods is ripping us off. (So are many other grocery stores.)

- These are George Orwell's rules for making tea.

- A rare look inside the Le Creuset factory.

- Cardamom and coconut are two of my favorite flavors — I must try the cake Nik made combining them.

- Bookshelf porn, indeed.

- I love this kind of thing (even though I haven't watched this yet): All the books referenced on this season of OITNB.
