love.life.eat of the week

Downloads3

I plan to make a lot of yummy treats this weekend, and I’m thinking that this goat’s cheese cake with figs + honey will top the list | As I continue to pare down my possessions to only that which is loved and necessary, the simplicity of this lovely abode intrigues me | Somewhat of a voyeur, I always love peeking into a writer’s room, especially Jhumpa Lahiri’s place in Rome. You know I’ve already pre-ordered her book, The Lowland, and it’s as much anticipated as season three of Homeland. True story. | I purchased two of Everlane’s Seed Stitch sweaters, and they are perfection. Lightweight, cozy and forgiving for those of us who don’t possess taut abs. | Lauren Grodstein’s magnificient The Explanation for Everything: A Novel is on my lap and I’m subsumed. I’ve read all of Lauren’s books (a fellow Columbia alumn and friend), and her writing is superb.

Brief note of disclosure: I’ve just joined Amazon Affiliates, as I tend to recommend a lot of books on this space. I’m using this service to pay for annual maintenance of this site, and I’m only using the links for products I have purchased. I’m just tinkering. If you don’t dig and I don’t dig, I’ll change the situation.

  1. How have we not discussed our mutual love for Jhumpa Lahiri? And after reading your endorsement, I’m going to take the plunge on those Everlane sweaters – they’re too perfect for long flights (of which I have too many) coming up.

    • OMG. I have loved Jhumpa since her first story collection. I remembered that Columbia alumns were invited to a special reading she gave at Barnard. I met her, and nearly died. She is so elegant, brilliant, gracious and charming. WE MUST DISCUSS MORE.
