What To Cook And How To Cook It

What To Cook And How To Cook It is now available for pre-order from Phaidon. I don’t know much about it other than that it is by the lovely London-based Jane Hornby. It’s her first cookbook and has a fantastic cover, so I’m excited to see it!

Saturday Wishlist

Sorry I’ve been sort of absent this week. Here’s the short version of my wishlist from the past few days.

1. Sony Alpha NEX5 Camera It’s the smallest camera with interchangeable lenses. It has all sorts of fancy features like a “14.2 megapixel APS-C sensor, a new E-mount lens system, 1080p video recording, ISO 12,800 sensitivity, 25-point autofocus, and a tiltable 3-inch LCD screen.” Plus it has some of the most convenient features of Sony’s point-and-shoots such as hand-help twilight mode. {from Uncrate}

2. Philips EnduraLCD Lightbulbs It last 25 times longer and uses 80% less energy than the standard 60 watt incandescent lightbulb. {from NotCot, press release from Philips}

3. Want Les Essentiels De La Vie Black Shopper Bag I’m a big fan of simple bags. Jack Spade and Lonchamp are my standard go-to brands when I’m searching for a new bag. So I love this black shopper. It’s simple and sleek. Perfect. {from Selectism}

Links I Love

Whenever I go away for a weekend it always takes me at least a full week to catch up on my Google Reader. Here are a bunch of links I’ve been saving to share.

1. Sea Creature Cupcakes!! Anyone who knows me knows that I love cupcakes and that I love anything that swims, scuttles, or lurks in the ocean. I like the shark and the starfish the best! {from Cupcakes Take The Cake}

2. Fantastic sweatshirts by Teenagers In Love {from Vic’s blog}

3. This felt sheet folds up into a cute little tote bucket. I want to load it with food and take it for a picnic! {from NotCot}

4. New Ratatat album art and release date! {from Pretty Much Amazing}

5. Animal-shaped papers clips by Midori. Just the sort of pointless office supply I can’t resist. {from NotCot}

Bright Yellow Makes Me Smile

How amazing are these interior by Louise Smith of Dulux?? I love love love the bright yellow color and all the big shapes and patterns. I wish I had a huge, gorgeous loft that I could paint like this. I’m currently fantasizing about serving perfect little custards in yellow Le Creuset ramekins in the kitchen pictured above. Just looking at all the colors makes me smile. More pictures after the jump!
