ming makes cupcakes.

September 21st, 2010 · Comments Off on ming makes cupcakes.

I can bake. I’ve made successful lemon poppy seed cookies. But do I enjoy it? Eh. I would rather take the clumpy spoon into the den and watch 2 movies rather than oversee a successful tray of something sweet. Honestly, I’d pick camembert or port salut with crackers over a truffle cheesecake ice-cream pie 9 […]

punk rock pastry.

Most people tend to pack on the extra pounds in the winter.  I, on the other hand, have found it much more rewarding to bulk up in the summer.  So at the request of my ever-growing buns, a friend and I made a stop at a bakery in Chicago last weekend that I have been […]

and this little piggy….

August 4th, 2010 · 4 Comments

I’m not much of a meat eater,  but I am definitely always excited by strange food combinations.  One of my more recent favorites: watermelon and feta salad.  So when my extremely beautiful and talented mother (hi mom!) told me about Vosges’ Exotic Candy Bars,  I was instantly intrigued…especially by the bacon-flavored chocolate addition.  I decided to do a […]

muvbox ups the ante for sidewalk food venders.

July 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on muvbox ups the ante for sidewalk food venders.

What may first appear as nothing more than spiffed up shipping containers, these steel capsules double as hip little cafes in Montreal’s Old Port, serving elegant dishes such as lobster rolls and seafood pizza.  The muvbox is built from recycled steel and powered entirely by the sun. I must admit that while everything about this concept is quite clever, […]

sometimes you need to tag that hide . . .

July 7th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Unless you live in Texas that is. According to Snapple Real Fact #909, it’s illegal graffiti someone’s cow! Well, it is Texas after all, beef is no joke! (Remember Oprah’s law suit?) Anyway, Ryan tried his hand at tagging the cow’s hide — Moo!  Now, it’s your turn!

obsession: i’m remembering.

July 6th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Apparently, I live under a rock because I JUST discovered I’m Remembering, a blog devoted to remembering basically every little thing from my childhood little thing from the 80s and 90s. I’ve only just skimmed the surface of this site, but already I’ve found . . . Fisher Price’s breakfast play set, wax bottle candy that […]

maison cosmos.

June 21st, 2010 · 1 Comment

Today, a new online design boutique opens its virtual doors. The Nice-based Maison Cosmos (whose logo evokes a Keith Haring-esque hand style) carries funky functional products from some of my favorite design houses — Norman Copenhagen, Royal VKB, Muuto, Seletti, Oooms, and the late Tobias Wong. The great thing about Maison Cosmos is that it allows patrons to […]
