jerusalem : a cookbook

I’m infatuated. And it’s only been three dates. But every dish I’ve made from the cookbook Jerusalem, has been outstanding. Last night it was the Braised Eggs with Lamb, Tahini and Sumac. Tremendous!

alaya’s : herbal water

Posted: May 7th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: eats, things | No Comments »



I’m so rarely into flavored water but Alaya’s Herbal Water flavors are so good! — just like a refreshing herbal tea, but with more clarity and lightness. And it’s the first certified organic flavored wate. I just tried the Lavender mint with ingredients of filtered mineral water, and organic extracts of lavender, spearmint, lemon grass and thyme leaves.

Shop online or look for a local place to buy. Still and bubbly varieties available.
