Hey guys. I’ve been busy lately, working, Yoga-ing,  watching Charlie Sheen clips, doing some pre-Spring cleaning, and planning my next Yoga retreat.

I promise to be back soon with some recipes, but thought I’d pop up and share this Wall Street Journal story on Persian food, entitled “An Intimate Persian Feast,” with you.

I didn’t see this linkage until today, until Shayma of The Spice Spoon, another fantastic blog, notified me. Thanks, Shayma!
