Cheese Straws



Cheese straws are the perfect nibbly thing for your guests to snack on before Thanksgiving dinner. Cayenne pepper gives them just the right amount of heat, which pairs well with a glass of wine or a cold beer. A small side dish of buttery Castelvetrano olives may not be a bad idea either.  Continue reading

French Flag


Similar to the last one – this house is being torn down less than a block away from our house. I shot this to get a sense of the contrasting textures of the brick and the various wallpapers, but coincidentally it sort of looks like the French flag. I’m not sure what’s to be built in it’s place, but there’s no way that the new building will have wallpaper this fabulous.  Continue reading

Veteran’s Day


In back left to right: Roland, Edmund, Walter. Front row: Louis, Arthur

A studio portrait of my father’s five brothers who served in the Army and Navy during World War II. This is truly one of my favorite family photos, my uncles are so young and dashing in their uniforms. My Uncle Walter, the youngest in the group, enlisted at eighteen because he wanted to drive a tank – which he did! Although my father isn’t in the photo, he was wearing a uniform as well.  Continue reading

Halloween by Love

Animated GifDan Love that is. Dan shared these photos he shot of our boy’s Halloween costume. As they were being offloaded to my computer, I thought they would make a pretty nifty animation, and that’s what I did. You can get a sense of the Atomic Warrior in all of his electroluminescent glory!

It’s that time of the year again – I’m test driving dessert recipes for Thanksgiving. This cake is easy to throw together, and is studded with big chunks of apples. The only way to improve it, would be to toss a handful of cranberries in the mix!  Continue reading
