Five Addictions & Fabulous Blogs

The lovely Allison (of Allison Wrote fame) was kind enough to include me in her list of 5 Fabulous Blogs.  I am keeping things moving with my five addictions and my very most favorite (and fabulous) blogs.

Penny’s Addictions


What can I say, it’s my crack.  I’m trying to cut back, but it’s difficult.

It’s always on in our household, and even though it makes me feel about 100 years old, it’s my main source for news.

My cookbook shelf is in a constant state of disarray, because I am always thumbing through books; planning menus, looking for something to make for dinner or simply curing my boredom.  My current favorite is Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.

Fresh Bread

Like Allison, I’m a bit addicted to fresh bread.  I never ignore a bread basket, and I can devour a baguette within a day.  I oscillate between pairing bread with butter or olive oil with a bit of fleur de sel.

I have gotten into the habit of taking piping hot bubble baths every night after David goes to sleep.  It’s where I usually read.

5 Fabulous Blogs

I’m very new to blogging, and to be perfectly frank, I’ve never been especially fond of blogs.  However, it’s been a real treat getting to know some fellow bloggers and really diving into the depths of the Interwebs in search of fun, smart and inspiring blogs.  I’ve always had my favorites (like Apartment Therapy), so I’d like to list my new FFBs (Favorite Fabulous Blogs).

    Do you have a copy of the Silver Spoon? It’s seriously thirty bucks (or so) well spent, as it is THE compendium of Italian recipes. It was only made available in English a few years ago, and is seriously worth it’s weight in gold.

    I don’t but I have looked through copies of friends and family. I am sure I will end up with it someday! I actually don’t cook much Italian as I try to avoid pasta and am not much of a meat fan. I use Biba and Mario Batali books mostly.

    I am so with you on NPR. I listen to it every day and feel a little bit wiser because of it. The DC-specific programming is great.

    Please to not stop blogging at Jezebel. Don’t even cut back! You can still splurge on something and it’s free!
