a few of my favorite things

August 06, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

On the precipice of another birthday, I have discovered a self-confidence enough to admit that The Sound of Music is one of my favorite films and the song including Maria's favorite things during the lightning storm is one of my favorite scenes. Most people will tell you that the very best thing about your 40's is the inner peace to be yourself and to share that self with yourself and others in a very truthful way. For instance, if I had to make a very quick top ten list of my favorite things on a lazy Sunday morning it would probably be the same as one I poured and fretted over on a Monday afternoon:  

1. family, friends and consistent bonds

2. music and making my photo mixed tapes

3. taking pictures and challenging my picture taking

4. cooking and discovering new ways to make food

5. writing

6. eating outside

7. a cold beer, glass of white wine or cosmo at the end of a hot summer day

8. a perfect NYC slice of pizza

9. dessert

10. red cherries on sale

And, since this is still, after all, a food blog, here are a couple of my favorite recipes from the past couple of months. If you try them, let me know what you think!
