SSL: Nov 17

17 Nov

Autumn leaves along the Charles River

It’s the weekend! Here are my top finds from the past week:

Feisty Foodie spent three weeks on the West Coast and shares pictures that make me want to move to San Francisco right now, as if I wasn’t dreaming of this already…

Hostess is closing. I’ve never had Wonder Bread or a Twinkie in my life and I’m not about to start now, but for everyone who loves them…learn to make your own Twinkies from Leite’s Culinaria.

These Salted Caramel Apple Hand Pies from Sweetly Serendipity

Anyone following the Guy Fieri/Pete Wells NYT review debacle? Wells, food critic for the Times, visited Fieri’s new restaurant in Manhattan (Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar) and gave it an extremely poor review. Fieri’s getting tons of press because of it and showing his true beliefs about the restaurant business in countless interviews. Talk about free press for both of them. Bottom line – Wells: calm down, that review is obnoxious; Fieri: learn to take some criticism and step it up. But read the original review here for yourself.

And if you missed it: How to Brew Loose Tea.

    Salted caramel hand pies sound perfect. Oh and I agree with both your comments re: the review! Interesting read but I thought it was mean-spirited….
    PS – Happy Thanksgiving!

    That review debacle is interesting. I read the review and felt better about a few not-peachy reviews I’ve written. It is fascinating from a media standpoint. There are a bunch of video clips & articles all over the place!
