April has been a month of celebrations — which have been exciting but tiring, to say the least. In the last 30 days, I’ve hopped north and south and east and west all in the name of baby announcements, birthdays, showers, music festivals, and weddings. Throughout it all, I’ve come across some top tunes, tasty treats, great reads, and other fabulous finds that I wanted to share with you. Here are my ten favorite finds from the last month:

As the second part of their guest post, Kasey and Matthew of Turntable Kitchen are sharing the music they feel pairs best with her Za’atar Pizza on Rosemary Crust.

I’m apprehensively excited for her: one of my dearest friends just moved to Sudan to do her part to help out in a place that needs lots of help. It is beyond admirable and she specializes in this kind of work, but I couldn’t help but feel some mothering instincts kick in as she said her farewells. To send her on her way, I stuck to what I do best: sent lots of good thoughts and a playlist. Some of this stuff has been around a while, other tracks are brand new, but all of them make a great soundtrack for embarking on new adventures.

I spent many a long hour in hibernation this month due to endless rain, a few bouts of illness, and being glued to my desk as I finished writing my cookbook manuscript. Here are the things that prevented me from going stir crazy at the same time they motivated me into the wee hours:

If I had a say, my version of paradise would closely resemble this past weekend. After a few days of hanging with my favorite local chefs and restaurateurs at SF Chefs, I spent the entirety of my Sunday at Outside Lands. It’s pretty obvious that I love music almost as much as I love food…

It’s a-live! Sorry, always wanted write that, but seriously, I’m so psyched as my favorite hometown radio station, KCRW, aired my Guest DJ Project interview today. Since I wouldn’t reveal my music choices back when I first reported about the interview I thought I’d list them for your here:
