The Friday List


Happy Friday everyone! Here below are some links for weekend, baking, reading and exploring. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. We are heading off tomorrow morning to Griffith's annual Feste Delle Salsicce and can't wait. This year I'm one of the sausage festival's judges (too funny) and so I'm under instructions to fast from now onwards so I have a fresh palate for the tastings! Will post some pics and stories next week. In the meantime, have a great weekend and happy reading!

This new-to-me blog is just one stunning post after another - check out Hortus Natural Cooking. I'm also bookmarking another new discovery Tea & Fancy. If you like bright, sweet and happy blogs; this one's for you.

Armchair travel - 24 hours in Savannah via Everyday Musings and Porto via Cereal Mag.

The Logan family make beautiful wine in nearby Mudgee, their cellar door is one of Australia's best so it figures that their family home is outrageously cool (yet warm at the same time) and beautiful. I loved this story on Hannah and little Clementine, and their newly renovated pad over on The Grace Tales  

And here's another beautiful family home; this time over in Israel. I adore that kitchen.

A summer picnic in iceland. A ginger cake from Jamaica, a rhubarb panna cotta tart from Hummingbird High and a mandarin and lemon cake that looks almost too pretty to eat. But not quite.

Food, travel and family collide in my favourite way here in this post from Golubka Kitchen; it's all about Dovga, an Azerbaijani wedding soup (can't wait to make this recipe), plus stories about it's heritage and that of the writer, and some beautiful pictures from Russia's Sochi region, her home region. If you haven't yet discovered this blog; please set aside a bit of time and have a good old scroll because it's stunning.


  1. Great links Sophie...could Hannah Logan's house/story/life be any more perfect I wonder? Happy weekend x
