My ideal weekend at this time of year involves the countryside, playing backgammon by a crackling fire, and eating delicious food. I’ve been known to borrow my husband’s pullover to keep warm—JCrew’s Donegal Sweater is so comfortable. I also love Giesswein Slippers, not only are they cozy, they also remind me of my childhood. The glow from a lovely scented candle, such as my Aralia Cedar, adds to the atmosphere. And if you’re looking for recipes for the season, Ottolenghi’s “Plenty More” is perfect—I visited the restaurant in London and fell in love with their food. The book does not disappoint. Take a look at my Tumblr for more warming ideas.
