The last few weeks have been a total whirlwind! After a fun trip to Austin, I hit the ground running with a big photoshoot. Photos and updates are coming soon. For now, here's what we've been reading and listening to this week:

Chelsea Clinton's new children's book, She Persisted: 13 American Women who Changed the World

Ava Berkofsky, cinematographer to HBO's Insecure, on how to properly light black faces.

This carbon footprint calculator.

This week's episode of Code Switch, which interviews people in communities more vulnerable to catastrophic weather events like hurricanes and heat waves. The episode investigates the recent headline "mother nature doesn't discriminate" and shows how discrimination only intensifies her wrath.

ARQ's crowdsourced High Holy Day guide.

Two out-of-the box vegetable kugel recipes for Rosh Hashanah. Cauliflower kugel and vegetable kugel with caramelized leek.

6 Fresh Ideas for Rosh Hashanah centerpieces from Chai & Home.

I'm starting to dream up ideas for a Tsukimi gathering (Japanese Harvest Moon Festival), which will take place in just a few weeks on October 4th.

Just picked up this smoked soy sauce and fig vinegar from my new favorite Japanese ingredient resource, The Japanese Pantry.
