sugar on top

This is what cd baby says about Dre Towey 's newest cd, "Sugar on Top" for children of all ages : "Dre Towey is like an ice cream sundae with scoops of Shel Silverstein, Marlo Thomas and Schoolhouse Rocks. Need more? Top it with cool rhythms and enchanting vocals--- it's oh, so tasty".

Everett and I agree!

happiness is...

when your sweet friend & neighbor, Tracy, brings you treats from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. She dropped off a bag of fresh mozzarella, semolina bread and biscotti yesterday eve. I stood at the kitchen counter and dipped bread in olive oil and topped with the fresh cheese....YUM! I'll savor the biscotti with my tea in bed until the bag is empty. I thank you, Tracy!

A Homemade Life

This is a brand new book by Molly Wizenberg, the founder of the fabulous food blog Orangette.
I preordered it. It came in the mail on Friday. I could have finished it in one sitting but I want to savor it. If you know and love the writing of Laurie Colwin then you will love this. I want to make every recipe. I did a big shop yesterday and got all the ingredients for Molly's roasted eggplant ratatouille, banana bread and scones. Thank goodness we are homebound in the midst of a winter snowstorm. A perfect day to spend in the kitchen!
