February is here and the Super Bowl is over (congratulations Patriot fans and to all of my New England relatives!). What an ending! I’m sure New England will be on cloud nine for quite some time.
On now to this week’s Worthy Reads. Here are some of my favorite links from this past week that I wanted to share.
Stylish Red Shoes
Paloma of La Dolce Vita Blog posted a fun and fashionable selection of red shoes called A Hint of Red, just in time for Valentines Day! Check out the collection.
World’s Most Amazing Restaurants With a View
It was fun to click through Travel & Leisure‘s selection of the World’s Most Amazing Restaurants With a View. I have been to the El Tovar Hotel dining room at the Grand Canyon in Arizona. We arrived during a white out snow storm and were told that we may not be able to see the canyon! As you can imagine, the restaurant was packed as we all waited for the storm to pass. Once it cleared the canyon was breathtaking!
I feel like I have been to two of the other restaurants on the list. One is in Big Sur, California. During one of my trips up the west coast, we stopped at a restaurant that looks just like this but I can’t remember the name. Regardless, they all have great views of the Pacific.
The other restaurant that looked so familiar was in a beautiful town in France called Eze on the French Riviera. Oh. My. Gosh. What an amazing place! I don’t remember the name of the restaurant but it looked just like the picture. Eze and St. Paul de Vence were two of my favorite towns in France.
How about you, have you been to any of these?
Mom, this one’s for you as you are the baker in the family. These 12 Baking Shortcuts are from Women’s Day. I learned something new when you need room temperature eggs and ripe bananas. How many do you take advantage of?
Celebrity Home Tour of the Week
This week’s celebrity home tour is of Oprah’s home in Hawaii. The view is spectacular and is looking pretty inviting as I look at my own window and see snow coming down.
Recipe of the Week
I thought this pork roast with wine and herb gravy looked delicious. I found the recipe on the Canadian blog Seasons and Suppers. It’s on my list to make this week.
Have a great week and stay warm. Thanks for stopping by.
