No posts for Valentine's Day because I was too busy enjoying Cava mimosas and a pretty new money tree (trunk shown). We did take out from Bombay House (of course--if you know anything about me you know my insatiable appetite for Indian food) and a nice bottle of Pino Noir Friday (to avoid the crowds Sat.), and played it cool Saturday by staying home and whipping up a mustard/dill crusted salmon, butter parsnips, salad, and chocolate chip cookies. By the way Cook's Illustrated is the most amazing website you could ever buy a subscription to. (I made my darling German chocolate cake with a cashew, coconut, and coffee frosting--to die for--for his birthday).
P.S. For next year: Warburg's I Like You may be the sweetest gift on the planet (and only $6.95--if times are still rough).
