cookie + brownie.

August 29, 2012 § Leave a comment

I love chocolate chip cookies, love brownies, and though I have never been a fan of raw cookie dough I have to admit my love of these Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. Super simple they’re a great twist on your regular brownie.

travel bug.

August 23, 2012 § Leave a comment

I’ll admit it, I always have the travel bug. I simply love everything about travelling – the people, the cultures, the experiences, the memories. I have been fortunate to find myself on multiple continents throughout the first twenty-years of my life. Lately I have wondered where I would like to go on my next big adventure and I realized its not a city or a country but rather specific sites that would have me going between continents to see some of the most spectacular wonders and vews and site. These are absolutely on my “must see” list whenever I next happen to find myself near by. I do apologise for the length of the post, well, not really since all sixteen are absolutely spectacular.

victorian cottage.

August 15, 2012 § 1 Comment

I love romance, no doubt there. The Catskills hunting cabin that Sandra Foster referbished is the definition of romance. Did I mention it is only accessible via stepping stones across a stream? Sandra not only dreamed up the most romantic Victorian cottage but did the carpentry herself. While it is missing a kitchen or a bathroom the stacks of Limoges china with tiny rosebud patterns, chandeliers, and  tissue-paper garlands create a romantic escape I’d only dreamt of.

color chart.

Going through old cooking magazines this weekend I came across this icing color chart in an old Food Network Magazine. While I tend to buy my food coloring already in shade of coral, periwinkle, magenta, etc; how precious, not to mention yummy looking, is it?
