Holy wow, it’s been months since my last Friday Favorites post! Here are a few things that have been on my radar recently. Happy Friday, everyone!
I have this sweater in gray, orangish red, and light blue. It’s thin, comfortable, and it’s a wool sweater I can throw in the laundry! What more could I ask for?
I love stirring these chilis into pasta sauce, putting them on fried eggs . . . there are many possibilities here! SO delicious.
Possibly my favorite birthday gift ever. I can work on the crossword on my phone and race to see if I can finish it before I get to work! (If it’s a Monday or Tuesday, I can. Wednesday/Thursday maybe. Friday/Saturday? Maybe one day!)
I use this A LOT for baking! It’s more precise than measuring cups and spoons, and I love using it to weigh out things like almond butter, rather than making more dishes to wash. Just put your mixing bowl on the scale, set the weight to zero, weigh an ingredient (in ounces or grams, yes!), set to zero again, and weigh your next ingredient. It’s faster, more accurate, and really does cut down on dishes. It’s a win, win, win!
This is my new favorite cookbook. I LOVE it! Each recipe is paired with a different wine, many of them obscure grapes I’ve never heard of before. I made the lamb ragu from this book recently (and posted about it here) and it was so good. I want to try every recipe with its wine pairing—they all sound amazing! And the food photography and styling is gorgeous. It is so enjoyable to just sit and page through this book, daydreaming about which pairing I’ll try next.
Please tell me that you’ve seen the Thin Man movies. If you haven’t, then please go watch them RIGHT NOW! If you have seen them, you know about Myrna Loy and William Powell’s delightful onscreen chemistry and brilliant repartee. Andrew and I so loved the Thin Man movies and are now on a mission to watch all of the other films that the duo appeared in together. I Love You Again is the hilariously silly story of a man, his wife, and his amnesia. Watch this after a long day and you will be rejuvenated. 🙂
Another wonderful classic film to lift your spirits! Judy Holliday is just fantastic in this 1950 comedy. We watched this when my parents came to visit a few weeks ago and we all thought she was adorable and absolutely earned her Oscar win for best actress for this film!
Reading this book felt like opening a gift—carefully crafted sentences came together to uncover a new concept in each chapter. Ingrid Fetell Lee delves into how things like bright colors, nature, celebration, and surprise can contribute to a feeling of joy and overall well-being when incorporated into our daily lives.
