A GREAT NEW COOKBOOK AND A FEW NEW BOOKS ON THEIR WAY. You know my penchant for a bevy of random books. I got the new Beekman cookbook and am loving it, great recipes, interesting tidbits about their farm,etc..great gift idea too! Then on their way are two very interesting and entertaining books below which I cannot wait to delve into......
And I am waiting on these two random but what I know will be entertaining reads....
This is about 13 short stories from women of all ages, talking about their life, food and their issues with dieting, body image,love, letting go, and loss. I know this is going to be a fun read!
And then for anyone who enjoys wine and reading more about it, this is a true story about 3 very rare bottles of Chateau Lafite found in a Parisian basement thought to have been bought originally by Thomas Jefferson. This story with a twist ends in a crazy lawsuit...to know the rest we will need to read it, which I plan on doing....I think this sounds totally fascinating!
SOME PRETTY SPIFFY HARDWARE. I have been really lax about the hardware for my bathroom and hubbies (though I think I squared his away, just went classic, masculine and traditional) but for mine I wanted something a little different, something feminine, old world, classic and timeless. I must hand credit to Anthropologie they really do get some very unique things in and by chance I found this scrumptious hardware, which I have ordered one's of to give it a try. What do you think? Who knew!!
Great looking mercury glass knob
This crystal is timeless
A knob with your initial...how sweet!
Delicate with a pretty vintage vibe
Maybe a powder room? So pretty with the cut crystal
Loving this pull....ordered one to try for my vanity.

Selma’s Best Oatmeal Cookies, ala Splendid Market
1 cup (2 sticks) salted, softened butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 beaten egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups quick rolled oats
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp. vanilla
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees (180 C).
• Cream together butter, sugar, brown sugar
• Create a bowl in the center of the creamed mixture, beat the egg and then blend the egg and vanilla into this mixture.
• In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Add to creamed mixture.
• Add oats, chocolate chips.
• Next, Selma says to chill the dough for 1 hour, and put walnut sized pieces on a baking sheet. Then butter the bottom of a small glass and dip it in sugar, and flatten each cookie with the glass. I have had fine results just dropping spoonfuls of the dough onto a silpat covered baking sheet, and skipping the sugared glass step.
