Fun Tools



Embarrassingly, we are avid collectors of everything.  The bottom image is of a large silkscreen my husband used in college, which I'm thinking about printing large sheets of gift wrap / printed paper.  The top image is actually something I've been wanting for a while.  Butcher paper cutter? And just our luck - one day we happened to be passing a closing store and the shopkeeper gave it to us for free. It's so pretty painted all gold. 

Carriage House Cafe





This past weekend was the anniversary of my husband and my engagement and we found a lovely place in Ithaca to celebrate.  I ordered brie stuffed French Toast, which was unexpectedly but delightfully delicious.  They also had yummy espresso. Highly recommend.

Pico de Gallo


I made Pic de Gallo for lunch today. Well, it was actually just yellow & red tomatoes, red onions, fresh cilantro, plus salt and pepper, close enough. It was super yummy with multigrain tortilla chips.

Sweet and Salty Cake


Every time I visit Brooklyn it seems that Red Hook is transforming into a really trendy and super cute neighborhood with tons of little shops and cafes.  Baked on Van Brunt Street has the most delicious Sweet & Salty Cupcakes you'll ever eat. Luckily for me they were on Martha and shared their cake recipe.  Lots of work, but worth the wait.

Twins


The husband and I had a wonderful trip to the city this weekend. I shot Jara again, who is pregnant with twins, in Central Park. All of the Cherry Blossoms were in bloom. More photos coming soon . . .


We stopped by chance at this wonderful cafe in Park Slope. Cafe Regular. Everything looked wonderful inside and their espresso was comparable to the west village's Sant Ambrose, which is by far one of my favs. We had a nice brunch there on Sunday before we left.

PROBLEMS

For the last few weeks I have been having so many problems with Blogger. I'm unable to edit or change my blog.alanakdavis.com, because of some migration process, making FTP unusable. Not sure if I'm going to switch over to another service like Wordpress or get another domain completely, or stay here?

So sorry for the lack of updates and having you swoosh around in circles.  There has been no technical support with Google and I just don't know what to do.  I hope to get this problem fixed soon.

RRRR
