Swimming With Sharks

There’s a really nice coffee shop on La Brea called Graffiti Sublime Coffee. It’s in the old City restaurant space. You know, the one by the Mary Sue Milikien and Susan Feniger?   No?   Well it was a long time ago. Anyhoo, Graffiti is a huge white space with great coffee and sweets.  The space […]

Kindle Kindle Kindle!

I finally got my book Sweet Things on Amazon Kindle!  Dang, it was easier than I thought but it took a while to get there.  So in June I put my book on iPad as discussed here.  In September it was featured in the cooking section!  It took a long time to figure out how […]

New York, New York

Went to NYC last week. Luckily I missed all the hot weather. It was actually perfect outside. Like room temperature. I went for work but had a little fun in between. I stayed at The Benjamin which was awesome and even more so because they upgraded me to a suite!   Sweet!  The hotel is at […]
