Sweetness and Light

A simple table. Feeling the need for a slight break from all the Christmas feasting with a day or two of lighter fare, before New Year's Eve brings its own indulgences.

Handmade Holidays

Each Christmas I buy panettone from the local Italian deli—one of those little traditions that make the holidays so sweet. Take a virtual field trip to Italy with this Saveur article about the town of Pinerolo, where the aroma of panettone fills the air all year round. Or try baking your own, with this recipe for Classic Italian Panettone over at Food 52.

Serenity Now

There's been a lot of gloomy skies, rain and snow here lately, so I'm taking a little mental vacation today with this photo of an idyllic al fresco luncheon.

The Listening Booth

If you're around Ottawa, Ontario on December 15 and are looking for something fun to do, check out the Petits Fours show at Kaffe 1870 in Wakefield, Quebec, for an evening of cool, sophisticated 60's French pop music. Also my brother Greg is in the band, so even more reason to go!
