Baking Fiend

I've baked every day this week. I only have 2 pictures to prove it.
Granola and cookies!
The cookies tasted much better than they looked.

While I was in Nevada last week we visited El Pollo Loco (Best. Food chain. Ever. After In 'N Out). They had this Horchata drink machine there (See Vampire Weekend song) and we stole some with our water cups. I don't know if it's because it was illegally taken or if it was just that yummy, but it tasted DELICIOUS.

Anyways. Point is i made some today:Muy excellente.

"Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse"

Chalk in

"Come join PB & The Counseling Center as they host the 30th Annual Arts Fest & Chalk-In! Drop by for some de-stressing arts and crafts activities (make a stress ball, do some spray painting, or decorate a frame), as well as free barbeque!"

What I don't understand is why people destress by chalking in the periodic table...

I found Harriet M. Welsch's garden

The Magic Gardens in Philadelphia was a project started by Isaiah Zagar in 1994. After traveling to Peru with the peace corp he felt a canvas was too confining, and sought to create a mosaic labyrinth to pay tribute to Peruvian folk art. This is what he created.
"In 2002, the Boston-based owner of the once-vacant lot located at 1022-1026 South Street decided to sell the land in response to rising South Street property values. Unwilling to witness the destruction of Zagar's neighborhood art environment, the community rushed to support the artist. His creation, newly titled Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, became incorporated as a nonprofit organization with the intention of preserving and promoting Zagar's works at the site of the Magic Gardens and throughout the South Street region."

Check out his site

Future Food

Eatable paper menus? Popcorn flavored packaging foam?
Together, renowned chefs and "molecular gastronomists" Homaro Cantu and Ben Roche are changing the way we think of food while tackling the pressing environmental issues. What's a better way to recycle paper than to eat it? Waste not want not.

Eatable menus at their restaurant Moto, each day a different flavor

Their new show Future Food debuts March 30th on Planet Green

I am currently obsessed with dad's old school canon A-1, 35 mm manual film camera
What a beaut.

This Is Why You're Fat

Why have chocolate chip cookies when you can have POTATO chip cookies?!?
I thought these were strange too when I first heard of them, but they're the perfect marriage of sweet and salty and crispy and deliciousness? And how can you go wrong when you mix the two best junk foods together?
So you can have a diabetic coma and clog your arteries at the same time.
But trust me they're so worth it.
I got the recipe from Emeril, check it out.
Also while you're at it, why not:

Made In China

More experiments with tilt-shift.
Tilt shift is a style of photography that manipulates real photographs look like miniature model photographs, thus giving everything a toy-like appearance. These are some of the photos from my summer trip to China:
Forbidden City
Temple of Heaven

No more snow :(
