February '09.... What's New

Wow...I've let a long time pass between entries. I'll try to be more consistent this year.

Here are a couple of items from this past Christmas to add to the "swear by" list:

1. Poloroid PoGo printer- This printer is compact enough to fit in your purse or pocket.

Just attach to your camera and it instantly prints the cutest business card sized pictures. Even better, the back of the pictures are peel and stick! I took it to several holiday parties and it was fun to share instant memories!

2. Blurb.com - A publishing site for home authors and photographers. I created the most beautiful "coffee table" book from pictures of our Mediterranean cruise last fall. It was incredibly easy and the result was so amazing - some people actually thought it was from Barnes & Noble or something. I highly recommend this site! my_Blurb_book.jpg

Although I think its tasty, I've never cared for the almost rubbery consistency of almond jello (at least the kind we get at our local dim-sum place). My sister suggested I try making an almond panna cotta.
