What I've been reading


What have you been reading lately? I just finished Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch, and I'm really curious to know what you think of it. This book really made me wish I had a book club with whom to discuss it!

The Goldfinch has been getting a lot of attention/acclaim on social media, so I knew it would be an interesting read. But, now that I'm finished, I'm not completely sure what I think of it! That's never happened to me before, so I think I will reread it a bit more analytically. Please let me know if you've read it (or plan to), and what you think of it!

Moroccan vegetable tagine


Tonight we made a delicious Moroccan vegetable tagine (stew) from  Athena Calderone's recipe (http://eye-swoon.com/the-kasbah-chronicles/). It was amazing! Such rich flavor in such a healthy dish. It takes quite a bit of chopping, so put on a great song and get to it! Try it out yourself and let me know what you think!
