Loving Lately

an-object-of-beauty1

After zipping through Shop Girl, this one was a no-brainer and so far, so good!   {Grandmothers from around the world, photographed with their best dishes}.   Sure, it’s a luxury item but the deep ruby stain of these fat and sweet cherries will have you shun those bleached fakers forever. Gorgeous Cinderella pumpkins.  Daniel was so..read more

Loving Lately

{Grapeseed Oil} I’ve been slathering this stuff all over my hair and it’s been thanking me. My fave at the moment.  Really, it just happens to be whatever’s on sale at the moment but too often, it comes without the pulp which makes me a very sad Squishy Monster so this one makes me very..read more

Weekend Bits

I caught some of the comedy stylings of Hannibal Buress.  According to him, “foodie” is just a euphemism for fat people sht, lol.  He proceeded to make references to such people and I couldn’t stop laughing at myself.  Why yes, I do have more pictures of food in my phone than of people or things. ..read more

Union Square Bar Nuts

I finally felt like a human being today and so today, we reserved the entire day for us. We spent the morning making banchan (side dishes that are perfect for Bibimbap), chopping veggies and making stocks…we shredded down 10 lbs of ox tail for a delicious upcoming soup. We had Indian for lunch (I know,..read more

Butter makes everything better, no?  I’ve been known to hoard several boxes of butter “just because.”  Who knows when the mood will strike and I’ll..read more

Thwarting Monday Blues

Today was a terrific day.  You know how sometimes you can just smell the rain?  It’s those moments right before when everything is still dry but there’s a wonderful moistness in the air that makes your arms feel all sticky and cool all at once and the breeze just picks up and makes everything smell..read more

Korean BBQ Pizza

The last time I went to Korea, my cousins took me to “Pizza Hut.”  It seemed like everything had corn on it.  It bothered me then, but I’ve really latched onto the concept since.  It echoes my childhood breakfasts of canned beans and corn.  Now this “pizza” doesn’t have corn on it, (but it could)! ..read more
