Food Network Wine and Food Festival

Adele and I went to the Food Network Wine and Food Festival in Chelsea Market over the weekend and it was great. We saw a demonstration by Alton Brown and Ming Tsai. Who knew they were so funny. It was really fun but next year we will get tickets early for other things too. Chelsea Market is always great to go to and Manhattan in the fall is fun too.

The summer is going by very quickly and it will be time to continue baking full steam. I'm going to try all of Martha Stewart's Cupcakes in her new books which is very nice. I'll keep you posted. Barbara and I are also going to the FoodNetwork NYC Wine and Dine expo in October in NYC and it's a blast. We have tickets for Alton Brown and Ming Tsai to see them cook.

It was really great. My sister and I saw the new movie Julie and Julia - excellent. For anyone who cooks or bakes, this is the movie to see. It was a great insight on Julia Child's life too. Go see it!!!!!

We went to Madame Toussauds in NYC with our great nephew Mikey

We had a blast - here are the pictures:

i seem to have lost my baking mojo. everything i make looks and tastes like crap. i have to relax a little more and make something really delicious and great to look at. i also saw one more cake pan I want. I already have tons of pans and they are perfectly good and I promised myself I wouldn't buy any "specialty" pans but this one is gorgeous. Its call the "Heritage Bundt Pan" by Nordic Ware and I have to have it. Only Williams Sonoma sells it online or in their catalog but I know I've seen it somewhere else. I should have picked it up when I saw it. Soon. I will have it soon!!! and then my baking mojo will
