Gifts from Zanzibar

Lovely gifts from Zanzibar, hmmm, that sounds so exotic....: Red curry powder in the most vibrant red, small beaded wooden spoons, very cute. On top a little necklace, not from Zanzibar but from the Costa Verde International School in Mexico.

Surprise!

Yesterday I got this photo of me having coffee with my neighbor, on the ice. I never knew it was taken...
The temperature was about -10 ºC, but in the sun it was okay to sit and have a coffee.

Iphone forever....

Ever since I bought my first computer, a Powermac 7200, I've been a dedicated Apple fan.
So, for me there is only one phone, the iPhone
But seeing Prada and Edward Norton together in these adds, almost makes me curious about this LG phone.....

Favorite Kitchen Tools

Really, buy yourself a vegetable steamer! It's quick, it's health, it retains the natural flavors, and brightness of the food and this one costs you almost nothing!

Lipstick

Gorgeous lipstick by Tom Ford. I think he's the only one who can make a lipstick look so sexy..... I'm wondering long it will take for the initials to disappear?

Eggs

Quail eggs, oh they are so beautiful....

Eat them with dukka (also spelled as duqqa or dukkah). A mixture of herbs and nuts from the Middle East, used as a dip. The actual composition varies from family to family. For a simple version, mix a teaspoon of sesame seeds, ground coriander seeds, ground cumin seeds, sea salt and ground black pepper.
                                   



OMG!

Before, 


and after...
