A Few of My Favorite Things

More baking is sure to come soon, but for now, I thought I would share a few of my favorites!
My Sisters 

My Husband

Peanut Butter Cookies – I honestly haven’t found one I don’t like, but here are two great ones! 

Beauty and the Beast – It is the best movie of all time.  If not for The Silence of the Lambs, it would surely have an Academy Award for Best Picture.

  • I especially love the 2007 Xavier Chateauneuf du Pape, enjoyed on my 25th birthday at Restaurant Eve.  Sommelier (also General Manager and Liquid Savant) Todd Thrasher generously poured me an extra glass after I drank the tasting pour before my perfectly paired "Earth and Sky" course had arrived.  He then peeled the label off the bottle for me to take home.  I also love Todd Thrasher.
  •  This summer has been a three month love affair with dry rosé, from our Hilton Head Island vacation to Fourth of July barbeques.  My two favorites have been the Rosé of Merlot from the Winery at LaGrange in Haymarket, Virginia and the Spanish Marqués de Cáceres Rioja form Trader Joe’s.
Ice Cream {and frozen custard}
  • Dairy Godmother frozen custard in Del Ray. You must keep up on the flavor of the day so you don't miss something delicious like Coconut Cream or Toasted Almond!
  • Klavon’s in the Strip District in Pittsburgh.  I love this old fashioned ice cream parlor and their amaretto whipped cream! 
Bobby Flay
He can do no wrong.  Now that Bobby’s Burger Palace is open in DC, I’ll be making my way there for the Napa Burger and delicious shake!
