Bite Notes

  • The residents of 44 Scotland Street may be coffee drinkers, but Carrie prefers to listen to the book while sipping a thermos of Brodies Breakfast Blend tea on her morning commute.
  • Like a man called Ove, IKEA’s Kafferep ginger thins are a little sweet underneath the ginger’s fire.
  • Salty, crunchy Cape Cod potato chips pair perfectly with audiobooks by funny women. Try alternating bites of chips with bites of watermelon. It’s tricky to pull off in the car, but it’s worth the mess: the chips taste saltier and the watermelon tastes sweeter.
  • Arroz con Pollo is one of shadowshaper Sierra Santiago’s favorite meals and you can find a recipe and discussion of the dish’s importance in Latin cooking in Gran Cocina Latina by Maricel E. Presilla.
