Recent reading A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles. It might become one of my favorite books. It has an interesting plot and very witty observations of human nature.
Passions Cooking — I love to try new recipes, and I enjoy “reading” cookbooks to get new ideas. I am a huge fan of The New York Times cooking blog.
