Stefan and I love to cook together on the weekends. For my birthday I received a subscription to Jamie Oliver's magazine, which is phenomenal. From the recipes to the fonts, stories, photos, and city guides - it's hands down one of the nicest publications out there. I love it even more because we get to spend time together and enjoy the delicious results.

The great news is that it's also now available in German.

Oddly the first issue they translated is a year old.

Both issues have Italian themes and next month's English issue will be about Marrakech, which he's also previously done. There are so many other types of cuisine that I'm hoping he covers, too - like Indian, Asian, Mexican, French, German...

Maybe next month I'll find some more recipes to use my Moroccan spices.

Past Travels + such...

I'm just about finished with editing all of our trip photos from our around the world trip. I never thought this day would come.

These are the places I've yet to finish writing about: Beijing, Japan, New Zealand, The Cook Islands, Hawaii, California + the Southwest US, New York City, Savannah + Charleston.

We have a few more trips already booked for the coming months and we're trying to decide what to do for our 5 year anniversary, which is going to be here before we know it.

I dug up these photos from my antique photo collection as to where we are heading next... Dubrovnik, Croatia!

These are a few of the things I really can't wait for... thank heavens Spring is around the corner! I know I'm not alone in thinking the gray and dreary days can get extremely depressing. We've had a few sporadic sunny days, but I will be thrilled once they are consecutive.

Hopefully the weather is nice wherever you are!
