What I've Been Reading Lately

-Save Your Recipes Before It's Too Late, a moving essay by Monica Bhide in Bon Appetit about the importance of food, tradition and family.

-This Washington Post article on vegan eats in Philadelphia. Road trip, anyone?

-This NPR books review of An Exclusive Love by Johanna Adorjan, which is a poignant and beautifully written memoir about the author's grandparents, both Holocaust survivors, that committed suicide together in the early 90's. I was going to write a review of it here, but I think the review captures it perfectly. It's a very small book that packs a big punch.

-A review by Kathy Freston on Crazy Sexy Life of one of the most important books I've read, Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. I especially love the last paragraph of the review. I've said it before, but if you haven't read this one, you must.
