On Intention Setting

Do you set intentions for the month ahead or are you more of a go with the flow type person? For me I tend flip flop. Some seasons of my life I’ve been extremely goal oriented and others, well, let’s just say that asking me what I want for lunch at 11:59 am feels like …

Sunday Coffee with Andy Warhol

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is Andy Warhol, who has been on my mind lately because I am getting increasingly excited about the upcoming AGO Exhibit on Studio 54. They’ve been holding some great online events to keep the anticipation going during quarantine. The Zoom panel with André Leon Talley and DVF was such fun. I …

Easy Louisiana Hot Sauce

I used to be very vanilla when it came to spice in my food. Mild, baby. It had to be M – I – L – D. Somewhere along the way, due to a combination of age, the expansion of my palette and all the time we spend in New Orleans I developed a serious …

Sunday Coffee with Saul Steinberg

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is Saul Steinberg, pictured here is a breakfast scene from Steinberg’s and Inge Morath’s late 50’s early 60’s mask series. I read this profile of Steinberg in The New Yorker on a plane in 2014 and then almost immediately started this Pinterest board. Steinberg’s work is so varied and so delightfully …

Jump in the line! An ode to the second line.

I think if you asked me what my idea of pure joy is, I would have to say being swept up in the middle of a second line, sun and trumpets blaring. No second line is complete for me without my camera, so I hope you don’t mind if I share just a fraction of …

Stay in bed.

Shower! Exercise! Make your bed! Work sitting up! It’s a lot of pressure! Sure, most days I …

Happy Galentine’s Day!

If you know, then you know. Thank you Leslie Knope for bringing Galentine’s Day into our lives and thank you to my gals for making life so much sweeter. What famous fictional or real life friendship would you want to spend a fun night out with? For me, I think it would have to be …

Julia’s French Onion Soup

Every time I make her recipe for French Onion Soup, I kind of feel like I’m hanging out Julia, somewhere outside Boston or in the South of France. There will be wine later, probably some pastries too, but first there’s this soup. This perfect soup. I used to think that I didn’t like French Onion …
