Leftover Crust

Turkey, ham, and prime rib aren't the only leftovers from Christmas.  What to do with the leftover pie crust? Oh, fear not little chicklets...homemade Fig Pastries to the rescue.  (after the jump)

Baking Levels

This time of year, I notice a lot of people asking others for baking advice.  If you aren't a baker, but have a burr in your butt to make some home-baked goodies - here's a few options, numbered from beginner to slightly less beginner.

Kindergarten Cookies (found, here).  No baking required.

Okay, I swear that Quarry does more than just necklaces.  It appears that this is all I wear though, so this is what you get.  Feel free to stalk their site, and check out their online retailers, here.

Runway White

Dolce & Gabbana S/S 12... stunning
 So, perhaps the cold weather has me craving the sun and sand and beach.  Perhaps it's just that I look amazing in white.  That's probably the one.

Definitely still have this push-pin.  Definitely stole it from John Baldessari's studio.  I doubt he misses it, and I will mail him the cost if he ever comes looking for it. But it's mine.  All mine.  Sigh.

First Batch

I love baking.  An excuse to bake for others (read: I have fun but don't inhale all four-thousand calories myself).  This is how I know the holidays have officially begun - taste testing my Christmas cookies.  Yeah, boo for me.

Fellow Fellow

Just in time for the holidays.  Thinking about those lil' last-minute, one-size-fits-all, hostess, long-lost-friend-gave-you-a-gift-reciprocation...yeah...there's always one or two of those.
