Seven Snaps: Christmas Eve (Almost) Edition! 12/8/12 - 12/21/12

Sweet Potato and Kale Pockets (this recipe) for airplane food on all my upcoming travels!

The Christmas tree situation in New York (1 of 3 upcoming travels) -- selling on the center median on Lafayette St!

Taken from the Apartment Therapy offices in SoHo. I never get tired of this view.

Apartment Therapy holiday party fun times!

My amazing friend Dan Delaney showing us how brisket should be done.

Brisket is serious business, folks.

New York Flips in New York!

Brooklyn Flea Market. (Attn all introverts: duck and cover)

Porchetta happening at the Brooklyn Flea!

Hipsters in their native environment

I'm pretty sure the rugelach multiplied while I was gone. I know I ate more than this.

I'm loving the new Tintypes lens on Hipstamatic. Even this misfire.

I'm off to visit my folks in Minnesota this week (2 of 3 upcoming travels). Expect many snaps of wintry snowscapes. Happy holidays!

Seven Snaps! 12/1/12 - 12/7/12

Good hair day! A gal's got to stop and appreciate moments like this.

The Candy Cane Factory! My favorite Christmas decoration from youngsterhood

Further adventures in caramel-making

Your weekly requisite cute cat photo. Bonus: cute husband.

I turned my favorite (though crazy-complicated) Christmas cookie into a bar. Word!

Lunch from Mission Chinese Food. I totally had thirds.

My waiting companion at the train station, heading home.

Seven Snaps! 11/24/12 - 11/30/12

Challah! Six-stranded braid, oh snap!

Crazy rain this week. The persimmons are putting up a good fight.

Gingerbread is happening.

Mooney's regular evening napping place. He gets very confused when I inconsiderately put my bag somewhere else.

Meanwhile, Honey spends most of her time passed out in front of the heater, drunk on radiant heat.

Massive recipe plotting.

Eggnog loaf cake. One of my proudest baking moments of late.
