Something feels different about 2011. In a really, really good way. I’m attributing this newness to the very relaxing three weeks I just spent at home. I had a quiet New Years, many, many long dinners with my family, and spent a lot of time next to the fire-place reading. While, being back in New York is anything but quiet and relaxing, I feel much more balanced than I’ve felt in a long time. Turns out that sometimes you can move forward by just sitting still…

I read a lot while I was at home: The New York Times, cookbooks galore, my favorite blogs, and a few select books. Here are the page turners that I very much enjoyed cuddling up with and that I’m sure you will too, especially given how incredibly snowy and cold it is outside right now.

A Moveable Feast: I’m a Hemingway fanatic and love all of his books, but this one is made even better after watching this film on the history of artists in Paris.

Surviving Saturn’s Return: This book was a Christmas present from my astrologist bestie, and as I mentioned here, I’m a little bit obsessed with this topic. This book is kind of a must if you happen to be going through your quarter-life crisis.

Gourmet Today: I read and I also cooked quite a lot. This cookbook is my new go-to and on sale on Amazon! I’ve made the Thai rice soup, roasted chicken, vegetable enchiladas, chestnut soup, baked figs, and countless other recipes, all perfection.

Everybody into the Pool: The reviews said that if you like David Sedaris you’ll like Beth Lisick, and while maybe not as laugh out loud funny as Me Talk Pretty One Day, this book has some really great stories and is perfect for an East coast to West coast flight.
