A Few Good Links

Probably the healthiest baked good I’ve ever made, and even more shocking than me making a healthy baked good is the fact that were delicious! No sugar (sweetened with maple syrup), and only whole-wheat flour (no white flour).

domino is coming out with a new coffee table book! So excited…and it’s gorgeous.

A fun look at some historic hotels – including The Greenbrier and The Carlyle (pure New York City glamour).

I loved this post about where to see spring blooms in NYC…can’t wait to finally go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden next weekend and see the cherry blossoms!

I was never aware of Metropolitan Home back in its heyday (it folded in 2009, who knows what I was doing back then), but apparently it was a really great shelter mag – so I’m excited to see that it’s back! So great to see decor magazines that folded coming back in print form.

Eagerly awaiting Curtis Sittenfeld’s latest, Eligible – her take on Pride and Prejudice. Here, she shares her favorite books for P&P fans. Also, here’s a great NYT article in which Sittenfeld discusses P&P and what it was like to take on the task of writing a modern version (which, P.S., the Times apparently hated).

The nine most beautiful streets in New York City. Pomander Walk…too charming! (thanks Alexis!)

Speaking of my friend Alexis, she recently started a blog and if you’re into wellness, fitness, Paleo, or healthy eating in general, you must check it out. Alexis is a brilliant photographer and overall super talented in the graphic design arena, so the site is gorgeous in addition to being full of great recipes and other content. I loved her recent post on Organic Supply, a healthy cafe and juice bar in Thailand.

I saw An American in Paris last weekend and it was amazing…far and away my favorite Broadway show that I’ve seen. The music, the choreography…it was so unique and enchanting. I’m already planning on seeing it again!

What’s everyone up to this weekend? The weather is finally supposed to be beautiful here in NYC (yay!), so I just want to get out and enjoy it. On Saturday night I’m going on a Met museum tour with Museum Hack, which should be interesting! Will report back on that. On Sunday I’m attending a spin event with the BTTF, an organization I wrote about back in October that provides breast cancer screening and treatment for women in NYC who don’t have insurance. They’ve raised $11,141 of their $15,000 goal. 100% of the proceeds raised go toward medical services for women, such as a clinical breast exam, an ultrasound, an MRI, and the like. It’s a truly wonderful organization and if you’d like to contribute, you can do so here.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
