MAKING HOMEMADE BISCOTTI

Carol and I love to make homemade biscotti.  Biscotti is the perfect cookie to serve with a cup of coffee or tea.  The batter is simple, usually just eggs, nuts, sugar, flour and flavorings.     We made two flavors–chocolate and almond.  Here is the batter for the chocolate….   Almond dough……   The batter [...]

I want to thank everyone for their funny pet routine stories, I have enjoyed reading everyone.–I have to say, Charlie with the assigned living room seat, and fake crunching noises [...]

PICTURE OF STACI

Here she is in all of her neurotic glory.  There are probably of couple of other breeds in the mix, she came from the Humane Society, so there is now way of knowing for sure.  She was picked up with her two brothers because they were starving in a backyard–she weighed 4 lbs when we [...]

THE THREE STOOGES

Every morning I wake up with Curly, Larry and Moe, aka Townsend, Staci and Shelly.  We have this involved routine in the morning, and I'm the foolish ring leader of this ridiculousness.  It starts with them hitting the back door at top speed, racing outside and pretending to go potty, then racing back indoors for [...]

LIPS UNSEALED

I'm reading Belinda Carlisle's memoir, "Lips Unsealed."  I'm surprised that I would even read this, I was never a fan of the GoGo's.  They were always too bee-bop for me.  Surprisingly, I'm really enjoying this book.  She has accomplished far more than I would have ever given her credit for. She talks a lot about [...]

SOMEWHERE IN TIME

While in Tokyo this last trip, I was very inspired by their love of Victorian era clothing.  There is always lots of crisp linen, lace, puffy sleeves, and menswear inspired jackets and trousers.     I picked out this Comme des Garcons jacket with tails, leather suspenders, and a tie front linen blouse from 55 [...]
