you and me and the moon...

I hope you were all able to gaze up at the lovely lunar eclipse tonight. We won't be seeing one till 2010. It was quite romantic. I love life!

yummy valentine

heart shaped croutons for the tomato bisque soup i made for our Valentine's dinner. Yep, super gay...

I'm really proud of these lovely Linzer cookies I made. I originally got the recipe from and to my dismay they didn't turn out. I think the recipe asked for too much flour, after refrigerating them i couldn't roll these suckers out. I then noticed that the linzer cookie cutter set i had bought came with a recipe. I bought it at this really cute store called Applewares
in Park Slope. This recipe was perfect! I then used black cherry jam for the center. I took some to work the following day and everyone was way impressed!

lovely flowers for me...

let it snow... finally!!!

You must understand! I grew up in Florida, I was in my twenties the first time i ever saw snow. It still makes me way happy. Not the kind that melts the moment it hits the ground. I like the kind that sticks and makes me remember a childhood i never had. ( mine were filled with palm trees and gothic teen years, shielding my skin from the intense Miami sun). The cold was starting to get to me this year and i just wanted some SNOW! I took these while i was running around my neighborhood picking up all the ingredients i needed for my sexy Valentine's meal. I had many moments, froze my fingers and teared up a bit. Gosh, i'm such a gaylord!

could this be true...

I've been hearing that polaroid is going to stop making that trusty old polaroid film so many of us still use and covet! Could this be true? My heart is breaking? And if this is true, will they still be making polaroid film backs for medium format cameras?

BROKEN i am....

I was lucky enough to see Siouxsie Sioux herself at Irving Plaza. We were in awe of her yoga kicks and her voice sounds just like it does on her records. At 50 she looks as amazing as ever. I guess living in the south of France and growing herbs in your garden does a body good.
