LDS

I recently read several articles discussing the prevalence of Mormon women in the lifestyle blogosphere. While I know very little about the LDS Church, and find generalizations to be pretty much useless in any context, I have definitely noted how many of the lifestyle blogs I love are written by Mormons – and, additionally, that my growing familiarity with these individuals through their writing, art, and photo curation has dismantled many of my ignorant assumptions about their religion.

FOOD & WINE

I have recently discovered Food & Wine’s tumblr blog, and, like Ulysses faced with the Sirens, I may need my crew to tie me to the mast before I clean out my bank account on a quest for ingredients. Lately I’ve been drawn to making multicolored meals, ranging from chopped salads to fruit empanadas. This beautiful salmon salad may be on the menu this evening when my HTB returns from his business trip.
