It's Cadbury egg season, and I've found the perfect egg holder. A bottle cap!
I know, breaking news.
I love this.
Got to try a couple samples of Amazing Grass green superfoods. I loved them!
Especially the on the go packs.  They weren't gritty-tasting.

What I'm reading and loving: Charcuteria:The Soul of Spain by Jeffrey Weiss

Charcuteria: The Soul of Spain by Jeffrey Weiss is an enormous cookbook about Spanish butchering and meat-curing techniques introduced to the American market.  Over 100 traditional Spanish recipes, illustrations providing easy-to-follow steps for amateur and professional butchers, and gorgeous full-color photography of savory dishes, Iberian countrysides, and centuries-old Spanish cityscapes.
Jeffrey Weiss has written an entertaining, extravagantly detailed guide on Spain's unique cuisine and its history of charcutería, which is deservedly becoming more celebrated on the global stage. While Spain stands cheek-to-jowl with other great cured-meat-producing nations like Italy and France, the charcuterie traditions of Spain are perhaps the least understood of this trifecta. Americans have most likely never tasted the sheer eye-rolling deliciousness that is cured Spanish meats: chorizo, the garlic-and-pimentón-spiked ambassador of Spanish cuisine; morcilla, the family of blood sausages flavoring regional cuisine from Barcelona to Badajoz; and jamón, the acorn-scented, modern-day crown jewel of Spain's charcutería legacy.
Jeffrey has amassed years of experience working with the cured meat traditions of Spain, and this book will surely become a standard guide for both professional and home cooks.
