Though I spent much of my time yesterday dreaming of painting cuffs, I took the day off leather to work on something tastier – brownies.
This is one of the many recipes I’ve tried out in my attempt to replicate the brownies at Mulberry Coffeehouse.
Alas! They fail on the re-creation front, but are deadly [...]
What did you have for lunch today? I had tamales! You can make them too if you go here. They’re not a super fast meal, but oh my are they worth it.
I also had to bump yesterday’s mail out to today, but everything is ready to go within the next couple hours. A [...]

I ate so many of these during the four or five days I was there and I think of them every day. Finally tried my hand at making them last night and ooohhhhhhh. So good.

- Allowed Memphis to sleep on the couch. He was sick! He’s still fragile!
- Made falafals and a loaf of bread.
- Watched Sean silk screen some T-shirts. [...]
In addition to leather goods, everyone got bread this year! A straight week of baking (and 40 cups of flour – this is some serious stuff) yielded these dense, delicious bundles.
I can call this bread a work of art and not sound like a cocky douche because all I did was follow the recipe [...]
