I enjoy reading about food. I especially enjoy it because I have a short attention span and get bored with subjects. reading about food is short, sweet and inspiring. Cooking for Mr. latte may seem a bit silly but it eases me to sleep. A few pages of good writing followed by a recipe from a memorable meal and im happily ready for bed. I mean shes a food critic, how fun is that? The best thing about this kind of read is that I can read this book over and over again. Food never gets boring and Ill never remember all the recipes or food banter. Amanda Hesser writes a chapter about eating alone where she accounts of a great meal at Pearl Oyster bar in NYC. Ceasar Salad with English muffin croutons. de lish! Today, I log into NY times and find the very restaurant filling suit. you see my silly reads are very pertinent to today's culinary news.

sorry Ive been M.I.A. I have been dealing with my first catastrophe in 2007! My closet collapsed!!! What ever did I do to deserve this? I should be up and running by next week. Looks like my sale will be even sooner then I thought.

Found this blog and I love it. Huge fan of Photography and food. I only wish I had more time for breakfast. I do love eating and arranging bitsy still lifes on plates but I guess my actions (sleeping in) have proven that perhaps sleeping is still #1. I will declare today that when I work in a more sit down, internet access environment I will begin blogging about my daily intake. Promise. This find seriously just made my day. I just love simply breakfast. Lets be friends!!!!

Nacional 27 has an amazing Mint Garden that you must check out. A few days ago some girlfriends and I popped in for some much needed cocktails. To our surprise we found a 10 Cane Rum sponsored exotic mint garden. The Daiquiri Brulee featured pineapple mint and orange salsa. yummy

Paris Hilton finally heads to the jail house. I am sorry to hear that the world will only hear about her even more after the 3weeks are up. Or worse, they will let her out early for good behavior.
