I love this picture (found via frolic); I love all the colors and patterns and how it illustrates the coziness of holiday preparation.
I'm definitely going to make some vegan cardamom bread this week.
Posting is going to get more consistent again after the new year. I've had a busy last few weeks, and now I'm sick, so blogging is taking a back seat. I'm excited to see where A Billion Tastes and Tunes goes next year! I've been intermittent with my posting and with my ideas for where this blog is going, but I've always had fun posting to it.

Mud Pies and Other Recipes, by Marjorie Winslow and illustrated by Erik Blegvad, is one of my favorite books from my childhood. It encapsulates so much of what I love! Children's books and charming illustrations and children's imaginations; it's a fictional, self-contained artifact, almost like the Voynich Manuscript; and it's in the format of a recipe book (and I mean, I love cooking, I love recipes, and I used a similar format for my book of spells project).
Images via vintage books my kid loves, a delightful blog I've added to my blogroll after seeing the cover reblogged on myaloysius' tumblr.
