Northwest Reads from University Book Store: “Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage,” by Molly Wizenberg

Just months after marrying in July 2007, Molly Wizenberg, writer of the award-winning food blog Orangette, and Brandon Pettit, a Ph.D. student in music composition with a chef's job on the side, decide to open Delancey, a pizza restaurant.

If you’ve had the pleasure of eating at North Ballard restaurant Delancey (1415 70th Street), you know their pizza is impeccable, with high quality ingredients and simple preparation. The décor, glass-covered exposed lights, large framed photographs, and wood fired oven out in the open for all to see, are all welcoming and intentional. “Delancey: A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage,” Molly Wizenberg's new memoir about opening Delancey with her husband in August 2009, is just as purposeful and well done as the restaurant's food and feel. An insider's look into starting a business from scratch and the Seattle restaurant scene, “Delancey” is Wizenberg’s elegantly written memoir of the struggle to realize a dream.

Dawn and I just got back from a fantastic weekend hosting 12 fabulous women on retreat. My sister came out to support us by taking care of feeding these amazing yogis for the weekend. This was no easy task but luckily just before the retreat one of Dawn's long-time clients brought in a special treat for her birthday, his amazing seed bread.

Left Coast/Right Coast: Cars

Cars are one of the most incomprehensible things we deal with. They often form a significant part of our own infrastructure and ego. To some, they represent something about who we are. To others, they are merely a way to get from one place to another.

By Mike Gold, a retired entrepreneur "living the dream in the Pacific Northwest."

We all have “car stories” from our youth and even in later life. Cars are one of the most incomprehensible things we deal with. They often form a significant part of our own infrastructure and ego. To some, they represent something about who we are. To others, they are merely a way to get from one place to another.

Forever home cat of the week - Polo

Forever home cat of the week Polo was abandoned by his family when they moved several months ago.  This handsome boy was terrified at being left behind, but managed to find a feral colony.

Polo was abandoned by his family when they moved several months ago. This handsome boy cat was terrified at being left behind, but managed to find a feral colony that a very kind couple was feeding. Polo was not accepted by the colony so he would come after the other cats left to eat, the couple saw that he had food, then leave for some unknown hiding place to keep from being attacked by members of the colony.

April to do list part one, from The Whistling Gardener

We have set major records for rainfall in February and March and I am more than ready to embrace spring with all of my heart and soul. Here is part one of what the Whistling Gardener is going to be doing in his garden in the month of April.

I have mixed feelings about it being April already. On the one hand I can’t believe the first quarter of the year has evaporated before my very eyes or perhaps more accurately washed away (yes, we have set major records for rainfall in February and March). On the other hand I am more than ready to embrace spring with all of my heart and soul and get the old joint whipped into shape. Here is part one of what I am going to be doing in my garden in the month of April.

Forever home cat of the week - Meowshawn Lynch

Meowshawn is a very sweet 14 week old male. Opposite of his beastly namesake, this little guy is a love-bug. Meowshawn was trapped with his three siblings in a trailer park when he was six weeks old. He has been fostered in a busy household with five adult cats, a teenage cat, and a small dog. He loves to play with the “big kitties” and would do best in a home with another cat (or two or three).
