Unexpectedly a great and fast read! (only took about an hour)

The book by Maira Kalman is actually the authors own personal diary of her travels over a year.  While reading this book, I was amused with every self illustrated page and the humour behind each story.  What excited me more?  By the end of the book a surprise awaited for me…. A recipe for Honey Cake! The very one that made my mouth water at every instance it was mentioned.  Hope you enjoy her book as much as I did, and I highly recommend visiting her site (http://www.mairakalman.com/ ) for more books she has written (children’s books as well).  In the meantime, enjoy the Honey Cake recipe!!

>Take a Bundt pan and smear with butter and a fine coat of bread crumbs.

Ingredients:                                                                                                  

4 large eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2cup corn oil, 3/4cup dark honey, 3 cups flour, 1tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda dissolved in teaspoon of water, 1 1/2 very strong tea (cooled), 3 teaspoons each of ground cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and cocoa.

With medium speed mixer, mix sugar and eggs- add one egg at a time until blended.  Slowly alternate some flour and some tea into batter.  Mix spices together and pour into batter.  Add baking soda.  Gently mix.  Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 45 min.

A slice of cake was well enjoyed the next morning toasted with butter, yumm!

Just reading my Anthology magazine when I read about an awesome art installation crafted by Jordan Ferney.  She is a party planner and a letterpress stationer from San Francisco. She recently moved abroad to Paris for a year, BUT NOT Texas (the good one she says).  Her blog www.ohhappyday.com lets you pick her brain a bit with the DIY projects she posts, party ideas, free printables and so much more! I highly suggest you check it out! Further more, here are her instructions on completing this art installation:
>For less than $20, you can treat a friend to an unexpected sight:an art installation in their honor.  Steps festooned with colourful streamers will no doubt make for a memorable birthday.  Oranges help hold down the streamers, provide additional pops of colour, and serve as hiding spots for folded notes. (of course, you can pick something other than oranges.)  You can get your friends and family to all write something small for the notes.
Thats it! hope you all enjoy!
