What are you doing this weekend?

For us the weekend equals good food and hanging out with friends and family but specially since having baby J we really make the time to enjoy our meals, I've been finding great pleasure in cooking for our family (something very rare for me! just ask M the master chef of our house!), but I think you just have to keep it simple and use the best quality ingredients that you can find, here are some of my favorite sites where I've been getting lots of cooking inspiration 
Have a wonderful weekend!

New fragrance from Caldrea: Mandarin Vetiver

Introducing a new twist to citrus in the Mandarin Vetiver Collection, new for 2011. Herbaceous, woody vetiver has long been a favorite of the world’s most distinguished perfumeries and its timeless appeal makes it a modern classic. Fresh, light citrus is its perfect partner. Lively top notes of blood orange and grapefruit give way to tangerine blossoms and woody petitgrain. Earthy vetiver brings refinement and sensuality to balance this sublime citrus composition. Base notes of white thyme round out this chic fragrance, creating a fresh and lasting impression.
