One of my favorite Chicago treats are the Whoopie Pies from Trotter's To Go. Theo and I had them this weekend and they were perfectly delicious. I don't know if it's Valentine's Day or what - but I have chocolate on the brain. I've decided to try to make some Whoopie Pies of my own, and I think I'll start with this recipe from Gourmet.
Andy Spade's book jacket design exhibition - 'An Argument for Looking at Books Instead of Reading Them' - looks like it was really fantastic. I love to read, but I'll be the first to admit, the cover is almost always the first thing to grab my attention. When I was posting about the Spade's kitchen, I noticed the new section of Kate Spade's website, Behind the Curtain, where I learned of this Paris-based show [in the 'Events' section]. Definitely worthy of checking out, especially the 'Things We Love' link.
I think I've figured out why I like these wallpapered closets so much.... It's a little bit of wallpaper love, without having to commit to a whole wall or room in a major area of the house. I can never decide on a pattern, and I'm sure I'd be sick of it in a week. But a tiny closet? Perfect. Country Home, March '04.
