I made this parsnip gratin for thanksgiving and the family loved it. Most of them had never had parsnips before.

yay! STL represent! thanks for highlighting our fair city! Don't forget about toasted ravs and St. Louis style pizza and pork steaks! For anyone who is interested in some more St. Louis-centric foods, I did a post all about them last year. And for a good dose of nostalgia and good food, I'd highly recommend visits to small old institutions such as Crown Candy Kitchen and Carl's Drive in.

sally, I've submitted stuff to tastespotting before, and I don't think it's hotlinking. You provide a separate file for the photo, and then a link to where the photo is from.

This just sucks. I went there every day!!

I did these, also. We actually sandwiched the pancetta between 2 muffin tins, so it was really a sharp, structured little cup:

Murakami is one of my favorites! It's funny that you post this, because way back when, I too made a post about a drink-centered scene from a Murakami novel...South of The Border, West of the Sun. Here is that post.


Apartment Therapy The Kitchen | Straight Up: Thirsty Reads from Haruki Murakami

It's awe-inspiring how much detail and work Julia dedicates to writing the book. Wears me out just reading about it! But she never seems to tire, because she's so passionate and delighted by all things French food! Amazing!

I like how she gets so frustrated with their father and step-mother in the way they travel. She's a true adventurer who knows the value of getting into towns, meeting the people and experiencing the cultures. Also, I'm glad she's voicing her thoughts on politics...it's refreshing and such a great insight into who she is.

I think my favorite photo is the wind one, also. Though the bubble bath valentine is irresistible!


Apartment Therapy The Kitchen | Book Club: My Life In France, Week 3 Discussion

Oh I am loving this book! For one thing, France has never been much of a destination for me...but after these first two chapters I am seriously jonesin for some Paris.

One thing that struck me is how My Life in France seems like a continuation of Hemingway's A Moveable Feast. I mean, obviously different styles of writing, but just the atmosphere of being new to Paris, not being very well-off and exploring the city and befriending eclectic characters. And then Bumby Hemingway even made an appearance! Has anyone else read a Moveable Feast?
