That’s a Wrap!

levain bakery

I tried my first-ever Levain Bakery cookie this week, and it lived up to the hype. It was chewy and had a brownie-cookie quality. As you can see, the cookie was so heavy that I had to use all of my fingers to hold it up. Birdman comes out today, and with an amazing cast and interesting story-line, I’m excited to see it. There are long choreographed scenes in the movie, which I am such a fan of. I love when movies do long takes that feel like you’re actually watching a play, and for the plot of this film (about a washed-up actor who once played an iconic superhero who must overcome his ego and family trouble as he stars in a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim his past glory), that makes total sense. And now, let’s wrap up the week with a recap…

* Starting a business with a sibling? I share my tips on The Huffington Post.

* 10 rare Hollywood props.

* I kind of really like this collaboration.

* Bill Murray and Sofia Coppola reunite.

* Crumbs 2.0.

* The perfect butter tray.

* How Keli Lee made television more diverse. Still not diverse enough, but glad to see that changes are being made.

* Pizza from around the world.

* The most incredible houses from movies.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Party of Love

Whether you are hosting or attending a Valentine’s Day party this February, make a statement with the food that you serve/bring. Valentine’s Day parties can be fun because there is pink all over and the edible goodies tend to be very sweet! Desserts are a must at a Valentine’s Day party, and I would argue may be even more important than the actual food you serve. If you are thinking of having an Anti-Valentine’s Day Party or going all Jessica Biel in Valentine’s Day and throwing an I Hate Valentine’s Day Party, check out this site.
