Two of my favorite things in one giveaway: Helvetica and Moleskine. Love....
So here it is, The Helvetica Moleskine Christmas Giveaway has finally landed! I've been hanging on to these for a good few years now in the hope I might round to actually using them,

Checking out Percolate this morning. It seems like G+ Sparks only way better. Are you on Percolate? What are your thoughts?

I am really enjoying Smashwords and books written by my friends and acquaintances this summer. Here are a few of the ones I've been reading:
The Dark Wife (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/59254) and Sugar Moon (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/67605) by Sarah Diemer, Robot Pony (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/73682) by Madeline Claire Franklin, and Dark City, Dark Magic (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/76687) by Peter Tarkulich.

What are you reading this summer? I'd love to know!

In case you missed the first recipe I shared (a delicious Chocolate Yeast Cake), here's the second installment from the new Stories: Savory and Sweet. I'm including all of my friends this time, but in the future will limit sharing to my Delicioso! Circle. If you'd like to be a part of that, just leave a comment here. :)
Hopi Pasta. Posted by Sara on July 23, 2011 · Leave a Comment. My mom originally had this dish at a restaurant in the Southwest. She remembered how well she liked it and recreated it with her own spin...

I love this article by Susan Cain on how to overcome fear and be more creative. I may be an extrovert, but I have a hard time putting myself out there with my own creative projects and reading this made me feel a little less alone and a little more confident. What about you?

Thanks for sharing, +Amber Naslund. I unchecked and am sharing again. Hopefully this helps other folks, too.

Very sneaky, LinkedIn. Thanks to +Steve Woodruff for sharing this bit on a box you really want to Uncheck on LinkedIn (and I recommend you look carefully at your email and other settings, too).

My mom and I decided to start this blog as a result of a project I recently took on: transcribing, editing, rewriting, and adding to our old family cookbook. My mom put it together in the late 1980s as a way to preserve our family history and share recipes with family. In the last 20 years, the family has used this book over and over again to make favorite dishes and preserve family traditions. I’ve been wanting to update this cookbook for some time now and, after starting to transcribe, my mom got the bug to start cooking a lot of these recipes again and we decided to blog our experiences. We hope you’ll join us in our experience of delving into recipes and stories.

*Unless otherwise stated, all recipes are originals of our family or friends.

Story
Introduction

This buxom brunette enjoys crisp autumn days, early morning cups of coffee, and the beauty of filling a blank page with words. I am a proud graduate of American University (B.A. International Relations, May 2006) and recipient of the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange fellowship in Germany, as well as participant in the School of International Training's Modernization and Social Change program in Jordan. I have resided in the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia area for the last decade and love the combination of culture, politics, and mixture of Northern and Southern attitudes. 

My passions include women's health, gender and sexuality issues, social media, ecology and environment, art, and youth empowerment. I'm an advocate for reproductive rights, sex education, and mental health awareness. In the past, I have worked for an ecological publisher, a health-based academic non-profit, and a civic education organization teaching middle-school and high-school youth history, politics, and government structure. During the last ten years in the Washington, DC area, I have gained experience in non-profits ranging from event planning to communications.

I am a movie dork, grammar geek, and music addict.
 I adore writing; stringing words together to tell stories. I have a soft spot for fairy tales. I believe in self-motivation and self-fulfilling prophecies. Some of my favorite things include brilliant colors, robust words, spicy Thai and Indian food, green city parks, and rainy afternoons. I invite you to connect with me on Twitter and at my blog.
