This spring I crave all the puff sleeves. Here are three versions: blue,, White,, black. How nice would that be for a picnic or a bike ride? – Joanna
How good do these five-ingredient peanut butter cookies look? Chef Wednesday – who added chocolate chips – he says, “whisk in a few minutes, bake for a moment and manage to scratch just that itch for something chewy, sweet-salty and delicious.” – Joanna
Have you seen the new movie My Salinger year? The film is based on the beautiful Joanna Rakoff memoirs about her time working as an assistant to literary agent JD Salinger, while cultivating the dream of becoming a writer herself. Although I cried with recognition for her memories of working in publishing (I had the same job for a few years), the story would appeal to any book lover. With his adult turn and lively office scenes, he seeks comparisons with more literary feelings The devil wears Prada or Working Girl. Plus, since set in the ’90s, it sparked a whiff of nostalgia for that time before social media, when emails were new things, no one knew what to do. – Caroline
We have piles of New Yorker Magazines on the table and I always want to read longer articles, but somehow I never get to them. Well, that Audm app allows you to listen to the best long-term journalism that you don’t have time to sit down and read. “They pull articles from great magazines – from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair,” says Cup reader Joa Deborah. “It’s wonderful to hear this wonderful writing out loud.” – Joanna
PS More fun stuff.
