An ancient Sanskrit legend speaks of a destined love, a karmic connection between souls that are fated to meet, collide and enrapture one another. The legend says that the loved one is instantly recognised because she's loved in every gesture, every expression of thought, every movement, every sound, and every mood that prays in her eyes. The legend says that we know her by her wings-the wings that only we can see-and because wanting her kills every other desire of love. The same legend also carries warnings that such fated love may, sometimes, be the possession and the obsession of one, and only one, of the two souls twinned by destiny. But wisdom, in one sense, is the opposite of love. Love survives in us precisely because it isn't wise.

One of my many New Years goals is to cook at least 40 recipes out of each of these cookbooks. I've now lowered that goal to "as many as possible". That goes along with reading 35 books, and trying to do Yoga everyday. I'm off to a good start. 6 recipes out of I Know How to Cook, finished 1 book, and Yoga every single day so far.

I've been obsessing over this idea for weeks now. I first saw an Etsy store selling them, and then decided to jump into making them myself. I love pies. I'll say that again I love pies. If you're a crust person you'll love these pies ever more. Starting out sticking the dough into the jar was a bit tricky, but after the first two I got the hang of it. Next time around I'd use normal 1/2 pint canning jars with the wide mouth. The only ones I could find at the store were these 'gourmet' 1/2 pint jars (as the label called them) and they were a little difficult to cover with the dough. Thank goodness I have little fingers.
