Friday finds

Last weekend, I met one of my most favorite food writers, David Lebovitz, at Omnivore Books. My friend, the one responsible for this candid shot, teased me for looking insanely happy — which, truthfully, I was! I couldn’t help but gush a little as he signed my copy of A Sweet Life in Paris. Haha. This weekend will be a different kind of exciting, what with a brunch and two holiday parties on the agenda. You bet I’ll be baking tonight… and it will involve the 16-ounce slab of chocolate and peppermint extract I recently bought.
