Moon After Sunset

Two forgotten photos of 2010. Walking home shortly after sunset in March. The sky was still bright, but dark enough to frame the moon.

Bad Cat

I bought the "Bad Cat" desk calendar as a Christmas gift for my brother. It's based on a book. I liked the box so much, I kept it on my nightstand. Yes. This is what thrills me.

Holiday-Season Highlights

Olive-oil cookies I made with this oil, orange zest and grated cinnamon. Based on Mark Bittman's recipe in "How to Cook Everything", without the eggs and savory spices. They are 1 inch in diameter, crunchy and not too sweet.

Two-year-old and her blocks.

I made these for a holiday cookie party. It's Isa Chandra Moskowitz's recipe, but I used olive oil instead of canola oil.

My fourth-grade class learned to make delicious candy-cane cookies. I can still taste them all these years later. These candy-cane cookies, however, turned out terribly because I experimented with coconut oil and I worked the dough too much. It was too much work trying to wrap red dough around white dough that I didn't bother giving it a second try.

A great gift of raisins from California via Atlanta. Note she addressed it to Julie H. Brad. :D

My work packaged these gift boxes for employees. $88 worth of high-end food products. And only two items weren't vegan friendly.

A fitting stamp from the raisin sender. It looks like Brad!

Vegan nog cookies from "Vegan Cookie Connoisseur" turned out very well for Christmas Eve. Delicate texture and soft crunchy bottoms, topped with sweet rum icing. Mmm.

Best of 2010

Sunrise over Keuka Lake, upstate New York.

Every year, I take stock of my photography, assessing my progress as a storyteller and as a person. Last year's best work has been curated and placed into albums on my Facebook fan page. While you're there, consider "liking" my page.

If you're curious about 2009's "best of", click here. And visit my Facebook album for 2008 favorites. (Please let me know if it's unviewable.) I think you'd have to agree I made great leaps between 2008 and 2009.
