I love lists, Friday!

  1. If you love a good before & after story, check out this Laundry room!
  2. Well that settles it…I need nude/pink lip stuff.
  3. Quinoa Spring Sushi. So into it.
  4. Adding this blog to my reader! Thanks Katrina for the tip.
  5. Smart Gardener is Smart. I hope to have a good looking backyard this year…
  6. Soft eggs & buttery/cheesy herb toasts. Just another reason to love Deb.
  7. I need to be invited to a Mad Men party. Or maybe have my own…
  8. Photos so perfect, you feel like you’re there.
  9. One of my favorite Indian dishes by one of my favorite food blogs.
  10. Multitasking & BROWNIES! Emma, GIRL we share the same brain.
  11. What a wonderful collaboration between Frida, Lisa & Anna!
  12. These muffins look soo good & easy to make!
  13. How to Poach an Egg. I love Shauna’s laughs.
  14. Taking this under the sink organizing sitch into account for next week’s High Straightenence post!
  15. I know this is totally in your head too. Admit it.

On this week’s podcast, we do a play by play of Joy’s cooking segment on TV. It’s like that movie Ghost. We also talk blazers, women wrapped in plastic wrap & we make our first phone call to a listener!

On High Straightenence this week, I bring you Part 2 of my Kitchen Organization Project. You get to see a snippet of my food photography prop hoard. There’s so much more to be done….

BTW- this picture above is a self portrait I drew when I was 6 years old! Crazy, huh?

I posted it on Instagram last week. You can follow me @tracyshutterbean

    A Mad Men party is a definite must. Think of the cocktails! I have a 1950’s cookbook that has plenty of weird hors d’oeuvres (jello molds of bean dip and cocktail weenie skewers with veggies and pineapple are two of my favorites.)

    On another note–successfully poaching an egg is my next task in the kitchen. I’m still intimidated!

    Hi Tracy! I’ve been listening to your podcast for a few weeks but just got around to your blog- actually stumbled onto it by clicking through a link from Smitten Kitchen after I did a search for whole wheat/yogurt pancakes. (sorry for the long back story)

    Anyways, so glad to finally see all your photos and domestic/organization tips. Super inspiring!!

  • Kat

    Meant to add you should totally have a Mad Men party. Would love to see the menu!

  • Lori from a family's life

  • Brittany

    Omg I had just gotten zou bisou bisou out of my head… oh well. I can welcome it back in there for another week. And YES to Mad Men parties. Way too much fun, you’ve gotta have one!

  • Celeste

    Oh wow! So honored to be mentioned here– I actually saw you when you and Joy were at Omnivore Books (http://celesteswanderlust.blogspot.com/2012/03/meeting-joy.html) but I was too shy to say hi 🙂

    Also, speaking of Mad Men parties, our office had a Mad Men themed day last Friday (http://celesteswanderlust.blogspot.com/2012/03/mad-men-friday.html). It was so much fun– I can only imagine how much better an entire party would be!!

    • Tracy

    Great list! Definitely going to check out the recipe for Saag Paneer.

  • laura k

    If you like saag paneer, have you ever thought of making it with kale? I did it a few months ago and it was awesome: http://www.kitchenilliterate.com/2012/03/08/kale-paneer/ And way easier than I expected.
