Do You Like Your Birthday?

Everyone who knows me well is probably laughing at the title of this article. Why? Because they know how much I love my birthday.

Nothing comforts me more on a brisk, New York day then a huge bowl of hearty broth with all the fixins, and a lot of slippery noodles to fortify that winter body we're all working towards.

With the wedding just a few months away, I've been feeling the weight on my shoulders. I go to bed thinking about veils and nails and bouquets and bands, and it's just thrown me off!

Inspired by one of my favorite blogs, Cup of Jo, I've decided to do a weekly roundup post sharing some odds and ends on the internet that I've found or read or cooked or loved. I hope you enjoy checking these out!

The Secret to Restaurant-Quality Roast Chicken

You can't really go wrong with roasted chicken. It's one of my favorite things to make when I'm hosting just a few guests, and am not feeling particularly inspired. You know those days, right? When all you want to do is curl up on the couch with a good book or movie, and not think? Me too.
