Picnic by the reservoir in the middle of a Sunday afternoon bike ride.
Coconut oil is a versatile, versatile item. Evidence A: So many non-culinary uses! (And indeed, it is my new favorite shaving cream … when it’s warm enough inside our house that the jar isn’t completely solid). Evidence B: Looking forward to trying this change to my standby granola recipe.
Oh boy, I want to make a stovetop smoker. Particularly to make this.

A culinary training program and restaurant where the knives are tethered to the counters … because it’s in a prison.
After you make yourself some cajeta, you should probably use it to make some of this. It’s on my list for later this week.
On a completely different topic: If we didn’t already have plans, I’d force Brett to take me to this for Valentine’s day. Timeless, that woman is.
Eating sweets, spending money, watching TV … if you’re going to do it, make it count!

The next few weeks are pretty hectic: lots of teaching (Valentine’s Day classes from here until eternity), a big dinner party next weekend, and two weeks of puff pastry in my baking class. There will be at least one post coming this week – at the very least, a recipe for my favorite everyday salad vinaigrette. Until then, have a great week!
