For today’s entry I would like to hand the electronic pen over to a woman I admire greatly. My former roommate and partner in wine, steamed spinach, and chocolate nosh sessions -Mari. Her recent post on her amazing blog Y Tu Palta Tambien captures the feelings I’m having inside about the recent death of Nora Ephron. Thanks to Mari’s beautiful tribute to Nora I was able exercise the deep sense of despair I was feeling and begin the healing process. Thanks Mari! I think I’ll have a glass of wine and some chocolate now.
This Apple Tart recipe from La Tartine Gourmande is quick, easy, and delicious. The flavor is subtle and soothing, and therefore, won’t last long around this house.
Isn’t this the best birthday idea? I don’t know about you, but I love receiving letters in the mail. You know, those things written on paper and mailed in a envelope. And yes, from someone other than the cable company. My Mom’s sixtieth birthday is coming up. I think I might fill her mailbox with joy.
