I’m constantly blown away by the amount of support I receive, no matter how small compared to the blogs that are in the 20k Alexa range. I don’t really know how it happened but I’m really passionate about the work I do and I’m happy that you guys share the same philosophy of luxury, design, and beauty, and I’m even more happy that in our modern day and age there is a chance for everyone to share their work.
One of the best things about having a blog is that you can organize a list of your favorite items and people who know you personally can read it, which means they don’t really have to guess what you WANT. Well it’s that time of year and the items below are all things I haven’t gotten around to buying, I don’t need anything on this list but yes I do need them in another kind of way. Many of these items are out of my price range but that’s okay because it’s a fantasy list.
#1 On my list: Rainman Carafe. I don’t even drink that much wine (when I do drink wine I prefer white) but wow, the glassware is so beautiful and I love the pouring mechanism.
I know this is cliche, but I love the holiday season. Mild depression lurking, everyone is a little more boozed up than usual, and there’s that requisite gift giving which is pretty awesome- Though my family drives me crazy I also love spending quality time with them… I don’t know what it is about December, but it makes me crave Cinnabon like no other. If you grew up in suburbs and frequented malls, you are probably well acquainted with Cinnabon..They make the most nefarious cinnamon rolls and I mean that in the best way possible. There is one at Port Authority now, just in case you wanted to know….
My favorite way to enjoy cinnabons are with some of my favorite champagne of course, Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Champagne Brut Rose
For a while I had all these gorgeous crocodile skins at my disposal. As I kept getting new ideas for other materials, these precious hides just sat in my studio, what can I say? I was empty on ideas for how to proceed…in fact I wondered, why did I even buy these?
One of my late night favorites: Crab Souffle. You’ll like this dish too if you’re into whole crab leg meat and spicy casseroles. This recipe looks complicated, but it’s actually quite simple. Some easy stacking and whisking and voila..you’ve got the perfect dinner.
A while ago I had a wonderful package of stone crab legs from Florida sent to me. There were two different sizes, a bunch of medium sized ones, and two huge claws, this was really the first time I saw a crab claw so huge. I didn’t know what I was going to do with the bigger ones, but I thought why not pick apart the meat and do a classic crab cake…Now this website says they have the freshest crab legs. They were not lying. Delivery was fast and crabs were indeed fresh.
I should have done this months ago, like during the summer as these are frozen alcoholic treats, but better late than never..
Russians love their caviar and vodka, but Koreans love caviar and soju. I hate soju though.
Anyway, super special delivery direct from Korea, some amazing korean caviar (spicy whitening roe). This small jar/package that houses about 30 sacs of roe is quite expensive and you can’t even get it in the US. Of course they sell whitening roe at supermarkets and some other japanese varieties but the flavor is completely different. Best served on hot rice with very thinly sliced scallions, sesame seeds and sesame oil. You can find these at Japanese and Korean supermarkets though it will not be good as the kinds they sell over in Asia it will still be delicious. Don’t be afraid to try it if you happen to see it around!
