This week we said hello to Nachos, as well as hello to Spring. We keep talking about Top Chef and are getting ready for Hell's Kitchen too. We also had a lot of fun and a lot of good eats. If you missed anything then check out the week that was, just click "Start Slideshow" below.

I came across this recipe from 1080 Recipes — Spain's "answer to Joy of Cooking," which was recently translated into English — and knew I had to share it with you. Partly because it looks so beautiful and partly because it involves bacon — sorry vegetarians, this one's pretty unfriendly. If you're looking for something to accompany your dinner tonight, then look no further. Get the recipe for Potatoes with Chorizo and Bacon after the jump. I guarantee you'll be drooling once you read more
I love the idea of recycling old wine bottles to create something new and useful. While dining at Bar Bambino — where I was inspired by their leather napkin rings — I couldn't help but notice the industrial yet chic chandelier. Empty wine bottles have been filled with tiny lights before being geometrically attached to a large wooden plank and drilled in to the ceiling. It definitely added an artistic feel to the restaurant and dining experience. While it's not something I would want for my home, I think the idea could be interpreted to create a beautiful decoration or fun lighting scheme for a party. What do you think?
