As the possibility of snow recedes farther into the distance, my optimism grows. Spring will arrive, someday. And when it does, I will be prepared with this A.P.C. tank.

I poached an egg freestyle last night, y'all. Actually, three of them. With the help of this thekitchn post, I managed not to repeat my previous poaching disasters.

The only note I have to add to their article is that when the egg plummets immediately to the bottom of the pot, do not panic. Just leave it be.

Maybe that's more of a personal note.

A bit chilly for sandals, I know, but I've always had a touch of Pollyanna about me. What do you think?

My jury is out on this one.

I'm on the hunt for a little, black dress to wear to a wedding. Here are two contenders:

From Chloe

From Phillip Lim

I already have a black dress that would be perfectly serviceable, but I'm having a good time looking for a dress to go with my kicky, new haircut.

The Old Switcheroo

After reading this recommendation from Nigella Lawson for Chanel lipstick in Mythic, I visited the nearest Chanel counter to give it a whirl. The salesperson thought it was a hoot that I was accepting make-up advice from a cookbook author, but then proceeded to tell me her husband's recipe for chili.

P.S. - The lipstick is fabulous.

Double Win

Mr. Lime and I enjoyed a double header of new recipes from The Kitchn last night, Chilled Gazpacho Andaluz

and Zucchini Butter on a split baguette.

I highly recommend both. Two successful, new summer recipes that involve minimal, if any, stove time. Double win.

The Grand Unveiling

I finished my sweater last night. Which is to say, I finally attached the buttons. Forgive the terrible picture. The heat has apparently affected my eyesight. Or my camera.
