A Bottomless Box of Morsels & Some News
September 19, 2006
This week I began blogging at Apartment Therapy: Kitchen, where three other people and I were hired as new site editors. I'll be editor-at-large, complementing the city-specific articles with coverage of online stores and other perspectives on cooking, food, and the art of hospitality. If you've never been to AT:Kitchen before, check it out! It's a great site with a very, very nice community. I'm thrilled to get to write for them, and I look forward to learning a lot from my fabulous co-editors Grant, Vanessa, and Chris, as well as, of course, founder and senior editor Sara Kate.
In other news, I received my BBM package yesterday and it gave a new meaning to the acronym, making me think BBM should now stand for Bottomless Box of Morsels. OK, maybe that's stretching it a bit, but still... Erika at Tummy Treasure sent me a wonderfully deep and generous box of delicious things. I kept pulling one thing out after another and seeing yet another layer of bubble wrap and colorful paper below! It went on and on and on....
I really enjoyed the variety of all the things that Erika included. It's impossible to choose a favorite, but I have to say that her homemade goodies, cinnamon-scented rice krispie treats and mocha truffle bites, are superb. I need to proactively wrap up and freeze the rest of the truffles or all my workouts will have been for naught.
I am a fiend for lip balm so the pomegranate lip gloss is already well-used. The lemon honey has been opened and enjoyed and I am looking forward to the homemade strawberry jam with black pepper. She even included a local Wisconsin product: cranberry mustard! I'm looking forward to cooking with that.
And so much more - bottomless, I say! There's rooibois tea, and a book all about tea. There's tiny mango-scented candles in glass thimbles. There's darling little ice cube trays and pink salt from the Himalayas, too. All in all, a wonderful package.
I enjoyed this event so much. Like Erika said in an email, I expected receiving the package to be the best part, but I had almost as much fun putting together the box I sent out. And it was such as lovely lift to my day to get this big bottomless box from Erika. Thanks again to Stephanie for hosting the event!

Question 2) What was the event?
I would love to get/give baskets. Living in Savannah, we have quite a bit in terms of delicacy and I am always up for sharing!
