Apartment Hunting

I’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus, as the husband and I have been on the hunt for a new apartment. Apartment hunting is one of those tasks which is extremely exciting, yet ridiculously frustrating and time-consuming. We haven’t quite found the right fit for us, yet I am not ready to accept that we won’t find that perfect apartment, with every item on our wish list. Though our search has been disheartening thus far, the prospect of our very first grown-up apartment, and the firsts that accompany it, is keeping us on the lookout. Our first piece of furniture purchased together? (my college dorm room futon isn’t quite cutting it anymore) A puppy perhaps? (yes, we are already debating names for our non-existent pup) I’m already dreaming of making a new place home, and hoping to make it as much a reflection of the husband and I, as these artists’ abodes—

Holiday Tradition

Wayne Thiebaud, Untitled, 1963, Ink wash in blue and black

This year my mom & I revamped our usual Christmas cookies recipes, for a whole new selection of delectables, inspired by the recent purchase of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, authored by the talented and eloquent creator of smittenkitchen.com. This year we undertook, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, Gooey Cinnamon Squares, Brownie Roll-Out Cookies, and Alex’s Chocolate Raspberry Rugelach. The Smitten Kitchen even took over our Christmas Day meals this year, with Perelman’s genius New York Breakfast Casserole (the most perfect combination of bagel, cream cheese, onion, tomatoes and eggs you could ever imagine) and Bloody Mary’s for breakfast, and Sweet Peas and Shell Alfredo for a decadent Christmas dinner. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday, filled with traditions both new and old!
