Brett Dennen is playing in Dallas on December 12. This song made me want to become his groupie. Check out his recent interview with NPR: Through ‘Smoke And Mirrors,’ Brett Dennen Looks For Himself.

Alison Martino of Vintage Los Angeles will host a tour of Stahl House in 2014. Anytime I want to remember my early childhood and the first 6 3/4 years of my life in Los Angeles I visit Martino’s site and Facebook page. The signs, the streets, the cars, the people and all that I forgot the day we left comes flooding back.

My friend Andi, a super human being, writes about kimchee on her blog. Every time I hear about kimchee (kimchi) I think about the book I read by Elizabeth Kim, Ten Thousand Sorrows. Anyway, Andi’s post is really timely! NPR just did a story on Roy Choi, the LA Food Truck King whose mother sold kimchi out of the trunk of her car. The post is also chock full of awesome links to beautiful, beautiful food.

    LOVED your class, Jennifer! Not only did I learn a bunch, I felt like I connected to more members of my tribe.

    May I ‘pin’ some of your pictures above to my “Hayrolls” Pinterest board? If not, I certainly understand. If so, please tell me how you would like the attribute to read. I am such a sucker for hayrolls – second only to ocean scenes.
