Welcome to the first weekend in March. Here are our ideas on what to wear, eat, and read this lovely weekend. Relax and enjoy.
We love this look for its pulled-together ease. It’s all in the details: the softly structured jacket, the trim around the hat, the intricately patterned scarf, the interesting earrings… simply impeccable.
Dean Sheremet’s new cookbook, Eat Your Heart Out: The Look Good, Feel Good, Silver Lining Cookbook caught our eye with its happy subtitle. Healthy, easy, and a bit different from the every day, this spicy dish is perfect to add some kick to a low-key evening at home with a loved one, family, or friends. Pairs perfectly with a bright white, like a Sancerre. For those beautiful spicy basil greens, find the book here.
Chile-Glazed Sea Bass
- 2 (6-ounce) fillets of sea bass or any firm whitefish
- 1/3 cup honey
- 2 tablespoons Sriracha
- 1 tablespoon tamari, soy sauce, or coconut aminos
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
- Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Remove the fish from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the honey, Sriracha, tamari, and lime juice: set aside.
- Place the fish on a rimmed baking sheet and season it lightly with salt. Brush it with a generous amount of the glaze, reserving some for serving.
- Cook for 12 to 14 minutes or until a cake tester can be inserted without any resistance.
- Brush with more of the glaze and serve.
Or… maybe you’ve got plans to go out? If so, here’s our solution: a dress that recalls the Mediterranean inflections of the Côte d’Azur, Etruscan-inspired earrings, and a fringe bag to add flair.
Ready to curl up? The Flood Girls, a debut novel by Richard Fifield, is a redemption story set in tiny Quinn, Montana, about a daughter and a mother, that’s full of humor, grit, and sheer outrageousness. A total page turner, it’s in the spirit of Empire Falls and Where’d You Go, Bernadette? (Two of our all-time favorites.)
