Queenie's Treasury

The weekend is here, and I am psyched! I'm not so psyched about the weather, though; I went to the Union Square Greenmarket this morning when it was still below 30°F, and the tips of my ears are still recovering from the trauma. I did make out pretty well, though, with a haul that included the first chives of the season. And ramps are expected next week! In the meantime, here are some things to cuddle up with in the warmth of your living room...or bed...or coffee shop. Wherever, so long as it's warm.

First up, something to help with that whole warm thing. I saw this recipe for corn soup on Food52 last week, and have been dreaming of it ever since. Like Jenny, I rely on frozen corn (and peas) to keep me going through the winter months, and find no shame in it. The vast majority of the time, it's better than what's available fresh. Her recipe includes curry powder and mint, and sounds comforting and refreshing at the same time. Sign me up.

Next up, courtesy of Design*Sponge, a peek into the home of the founders of Paris' famed Hidden Kitchen eating club. It's a gorgeous place, all glamour and comfort and, well, Paris. I would move there in a New York minute.

Finally, another tidbit from Design*Sponge. (I know, I'm kinda boring this week.) Look at this pantry. Don't you want it? How could you not? It is, quite simply, amazing. To have everything you need so readily accessible, and so beautifully stored? I swoon and sigh at the mere thought.

I saw that pantry somewhere else this week. Maybe the Kitchn or Elements of Style. Apparently the owners do not eat any processed foods. I'd love to be on the ball enough to manage soemthing like this later in life but can't imagine it happening before retirement.

I know! I can't imagine doing it even then. Give me white flour, or give me death!
