Cinnamon – NYC

My dearest Haley – you’ll be happy to know that the canopy of leaves in Central Park is still green, and those few that have fallen to the ground skipped their vibrant color change, depressed being no longer attached to their mother tree and are a bland brown. No reds, no oranges – no visual […]

When we made the move from right to left coast, we thought we were trading up in lifestyle and weather.  There is something to said about the evergreen flora of California, but it doesn’t compare to the change in seasons.  Or more specifically (as Ella Fitzgerald would say), autumn in New York. The trees in Central Park are […]

Jalepenos – NYC

              The man gave me both the recipe for Jalepeno Cornbread he found, plus two browning bananas with which to make banana bread. Um…ok. SO I went with my own “Choose Your Own Adventure” recipe for this challenge. And after submitting Haley to “jalepenos” as a baking challenge, it […]

So my WONDERFUL bicoastal counterpoint sent me a special housewarming gift that I wanted to use ASAP (especially since the man got me a ice cream maker for my birthday 4 months ago that I’ve only used once…)“The Perfect Scoop” by David Lebovitz. Amazing. Just amazing. I want to make every single icecream in this […]
