Emergence

EMERGENCE
Spring Awakening, Silverlake
"In winter, I plot and plan, in spring, I move."  by Henry Rollins
Signs exhibit themselves throughout our Silverlake garden as spring emerges. From a new hydrangea which we thought was gone, to a brightly colored Kolanchoe, to pink azaleas, our little patch of heaven begins to renew itself.
Roses have been feed once already - and soon we begin to tidy up. Dead leaves will be picked up and weeds, pulled - as we ready for the oncoming growth of deep spring and early summer.
And so it begins - year after year after year. Spring emerges.

And In This Corner...

TWO COOKBOOKS, ONE REVIEW
And the winner is?

From Food52, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt reviews two beautiful cookbooks. I own only one of them, My Paris Kitchen, by David Lebovitz.
Each time I enter the cookbook section of our local bookstore, Vroman's, I am tempted to purchase Bar Tartine, as well. And no matter what the judgement of this reviewer, I can agree with everything Mr. Lopez-Alt says about My Paris Kitchen. I see eye-to-eye with him, when he writes,
"Personality? Check. His book, like all of his work, is brimming with it. He's your host, your guide, and your partner in crime in the kitchen and around town, simultaneously showing profound respect for his adopted country while playfully challenging traditions and reveling in the looks of quoi?that his American questions earn him from French colleagues."
We are entertained and educated by David Lebovitz' descriptive writing and lovely photographs - and while we have attempted only a couple of recipes, we can safely attest to thoroughly enjoying this cookbook.
So, please make your way to this review at Food52, read it and decide for yourself.
