Link love (Powered by fresh faces and leisurely lunches)

This week, I really needed a dishwasher. And a dryer. After a brief welcome-to-winter heat spell, we reclaimed the title of rainiest city. (Perhaps it’s foolhardy not to fork out for a dryer, but it’s such a big expense and environmentally unfriendly.)

And for those who asked, I was previously working at a news website (hence the shift work; although I will miss that buzz and the feeling of being part of something larger and more important than myself – the news waits for no one) and am now at a magazine publisher.

  1. Thanks for sharing the link to my deep dish pizza!

    While it’s a little warm for pizza now that it’s summer for us, I bet this would be great as a winter dish in the Southern Hemisphere. I remember how cold it can get in New Zealand this time of year. :)

  2. Love the links! Quite thought-provoking and inspiring stuff. I’m finally getting the writing bug back again!

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with a good summery recipe, no matter what the weather. But with the heat and humidity in the Midwest here … yeah, I’m going to avoid making a pot roast for the near future. More salads, fewer baked goods, and I’ll save on my electricity bill!
