Stroke of Inspiration / IV

This week: A magazine feature, an app for podcasts, and fizzy red wine.

I'm featured in this month's issue of FM, Malta's fashion magazine. It's my favourite Maltese publication, so I'm pretty tickled. But I think they must have been super desperate for content to feature me  — there are plenty of other way cooler bloggers in Malta.

Do check it out if that's your kind of thing. You can find me on page 37.

I've been binge listening to storytelling podcasts like it's my job recently, courtesy of WNYC's fantastic new app. Plug in your interests, the amount of time you have to binge (30 minutes to 3 hours) and it creates a custom playlist of wonderful radio and podcasts for you. It's awesome (and of course, free). Get it here.

This is super hearty, easy, and fast. Literally, fry those vegetables and add eggs on top when they're just about done. It's like the lazy man's Spanish tortilla. Get the recipe here, and pop over to Pinterest to see all the Pinterest recipes I've made and loved (and those I've yet to try). 

And, on the theme of eggs, Why English Eggs Are Way Different Than American EggsIt all makes sense now! In Malta we also don't even refrigerate eggs. Also, I had no idea you could vaccinate hens against salmonella!

When I tell people there's a red version of prosecco or champagne, they are always so surprised. I know, it sounds terrible, but it's delicious!

I discovered Lambrusco on a trip to Mantova, Italy. It is a smooth, rich red wine, served cold, with a touch of bubbles. It goes great with parmigiano and is a wonderful alternative to white wine on hot summer nights. Kick it up a notch by throwing in some orange and cinnamon.
