I had a bunch of extra icing from my lime cupcakes and no plan for them. But I did have a new pastry bag set, a bunch of bananas and very little piping practice. Waa-la! Bananas with lime frosting. Totally delicious and perfect for a sweet little unhealthy snack. Charming enough to serve to guests too if you felt like it. I also filled a few cherry halves with the frosting but they didn't photograph well and were not nearly as delicious as the bananas.
I am a learn-o-phile with a penchant for all things domestic. I love, first and foremost the muppets and then, among other things (and not in any particular order), classic horror movies, fresh basil, citrus fruits, garlic, lace, staying up later than most sane people would consider, dancing in my kitchen to the sounds of billie and ella, dancing in empty old man bars to sam cooke, high heels (although the chance to wear the many pairs I own comes only in a blue moon), string quartets, whispering, brown sugar, ginger, aprons, the green mill on a lazy sunday night, spinach, drawing, swings, lyonel feininger, souffles, red lighting, indonesian culinary delights, used book stores, making things from scratch, classic cartoons, growing herbs, thrift stores, farmers markets, lemongrass, biking on a sunny 70-degree day, thunderstorms, fresh mozzarella, feeling like a kid, and finding ways to cook healthy delicious meals that both I and my live-in boyfriend can enjoy despite our conflicting tastes. (without excluding the occasional way too indulgent dessert)
