Who loves Benedict Cumberbatch more than moi? No one. Lawd a'mercy can that man wear a suit! Who is tired of winter? Moi! It feels like we're living on Hoth; at least that's how I am experiencing this January.
In any case, the Em-i-lis 2013 Year in Review continues with... MARCH.
Em-i-lis turned 2!!! And Oliver celebrated his 4th! Both were such happy occasions though only Oliver had a spectacular Wonder Woman cake and received a real Golden Lasso. I dare say my birthday cakes are getting awfully artistic and skillfully done.
As Oliver's birthday is St. Patrick's Day, I made a magnificent corned beef and cabbage meal, a la Suzanne Goin, for dinner that night. This recipe was immediately filed in the Awesome: Make Regularly category.
We went to New Orleans for Spring Break, discovered and ate at Coquette (a must; great place) while there and for the first time ever, had to buy jeans because of a cold front. In Louisiana! In late March!
Tom and I co-wrote this lengthy post about knives: types, honing and sharpening them, ways to do so, etc. Very helpful! And when Sheryl Sandberg's book, Lean In, burst onto the scene, and the whole Sandberg-Anne-Marie Slaughter conversation commenced, I wrote this essay: Leaning In.
Lastly, my obsession with homemade ricotta and candied kumquats reached new heights in this tart. Aah...makes me want to go make one now!
All in all, in looking back, March was not the most exciting of months so I'm hoping for better as this one rolls around.
