Queenie's Treasury

Happy weekend, readers! Here in New York it's a cold, sleety sort of day; the kind of day made for curling up with a book in front of the fire - or, in my case, the teeny Christmas tree. If your weather is similarly gray, I hope these tidbits will brighten it up a bit.

First off, a new project from three great food bloggers (Maggie of Pithy & Cleaver, Jennie of In Jennie's Kitchen and Olga of Sassy Radish). Those of us who miss Gourmet will do just about anything for a fix of the real thing. Luckily, Gourmet, Unbound has arrived to fill a little bit of the hole left behind. Each month, they're collecting a series of posts about Gourmet recipes past and publishing them on their new site. Each month they'll feature recipes from any year in Gourmet's history; the recipe, however, must be from an issue matching the month in question. (In other words, January will feature recipes from Gourmet's January issues, and so on.) Check out their December posts for holiday meal planning inspiration!

Next, from Design*Sponge, a super-cool (and pretty) recipe for wassail, the traditional Christmas punch. Booze + pretty photos + the holidays = happy Queenie.
Last, but not least, an inspiring reading list from Michelle over at Feminine Modern. I've read a few on this list, and am now lusting after French Market Cooking. France? Local produce? Sign me up! A great list for gift-giving inspiration, to be sure.
