As you can tell from the photos, this was a great food week. A little mid-week dessert indulgence after lunch makes for a wonderful Wednesday, as does a quick stop for juicy pork dumplings with shrimp. We are approaching exciting times – not only are Christmas and New Years coming up, but award season is upon us! It comes and goes so quickly. Who are you rooting for this year? There are so many great nominees, but the one person for sure that I know I am hoping wins is Cate Blanchett for her emotional role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. We’ll just have to wait a little longer to find out the lucky winners! Until then, let’s wrap up the week with a recap…

* Enjoyed every last bite of this 24 karrot cake {photo above}.

* Words worth remembering.

* What Samantha from Spike Jonze’s Her would wear if she were real.

* SAG Award nominations are out. So are Golden Globe nominations. Let the award season begin!

* When it comes to juicy pork dumplings, I just can’t help myself {2nd photo above}.

* This Pepsi can drawing looks so real. This guy has serious talent. Also, his realistic Nutella drawing.

* If you are still in need of last-minute gifts, here are some ideas!

Have a great last weekend before Christmas!
