Dessert is a favorite salty/sweet concoction. You make a giant oatmeal cookie then crumble it. Then layer it with slightly sweetened strawberries and fresh whipped cream (sweeten a bit with powdered sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract). The oatmeal crust for Momofuku’s Crack Pie works beautifully as your cookie and I doubled the recipe to get another layer out of it.

Damn woman.

Baby elephant drinking. When they are this young, they don’t yet know how to use their trunks to drink water.

Oh noes.

Just watched the last four episodes of the last season. SO FREAKING EXCITED.
PS: Here’s a blast from the past: that time we threw a Mad Men party (before anyone really knew what Mad Men was yet), Andrea made cocktails (before any of us really knew what cocktails were yet), and we had exactly one man between us (luckily he was a keeper).

Operation Surprise Wylie


newyorker:

image

For 48 hours this week, some of the world’s most acclaimed chefs were living in hiding in New York City, preparing the ultimate surprise party for Wylie Dufresne: http://nyr.kr/1gLjbCG

They’d focus on three of Dufresne’s signature dishes: shrimp noodles, cold fried chicken, and scrambled egg ravioli, a cube-like concoction made of scrambled eggs encased in a sheath of egg yolk. They’d form cooking groups, pick their dishes, and converge at wd~50 on a Tuesday, when the restaurant was closed. At the appointed hour, someone would call Dufresne to inform him that the restaurant was flooded. When he came rushing over, he’d arrive to the party of his dreams.

Such a fun story.

The Ultimate Guide to Solving iOS Battery Drain — Overthought


What most people tell you is that closing your apps will save your battery life because it keeps the apps from running in the background.

Wrong.

Yes, it does shut down the app, but what you don’t know is that you are actually making your battery life worse if you do this on a regular basis. Let me tell you why.

By closing the app, you take the app out of the phone’s RAM . While you think this may be what you want to do, it’s not. When you open that same app again the next time you need it, your device has to load it back into memory all over again. All of that loading and unloading puts more stress on your device than just leaving it alone. Plus, iOS closes apps automatically as it needs more memory, so you’re doing something your device is already doing for you. You are meant to be the user of your device, not the janitor.

The ol’ ring switcharoo.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that six months after we set a wedding date, we are officially official. But heaven forbid we ever do things in the right order. Due to some major miscommunication between M. and his mom The Ring spent the first week in India on my right hand, me thinking it was ‘just’ the incredibly generous gift of a family heirloom. It wasn’t ‘til after his birthday party that Andrea, a bit tipsy and clearly charged with her task by a panicked M., said, “We’re going to need that ring back,” and I had some inkling that, oops, when his mom was handing out rings (and there were multiple), she wasn’t supposed to be handing out THIS ring.

But I kept wearing it, on Gena’s advice that he could change the hand it was on himself.

Thing is though, it was always more comfortable on the left hand and I often absentmindedly moved it there, so when I walked into our lovely room at the Brunton Boatyard to see it decorated like this, I actually had to quick move it from left to right, knowing that fragrant ribbons of jasmine can only mean one thing: the left ring finger was about to live out its destiny and must be naked as a virgin in preparation.

He got down on one knee. He asked me to marry him. This time it was not a qualified yes. It was a yes, wherever and whenever and til death do us part.

The ring is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen, certainly the most beautiful thing I have ever worn. I am awed by its colors, by its weight, by the richness of the gold, and most of all, by its history. It is at least 200 years old, though it may be 300.

It began as one of several pendants on a long necklace that was a gift to M.’s great-grandfather, the Dewan of Mysore, by the Maharaja of Mysore, during the years of the British Raj. (The Dewan is a top advisory position, hereditary, that M.’s family held for generations.) We don’t know how long it was in the Maharaja’s family.

M.’s great-grandmother turned the pendants into rings and as an antique jewelry expert explained to me, each is an example of pancharatma — jewelry that has 5 gems or 5 metals, a symbol of power. The gems are uncut ruby, uncut emerald, uncut sapphire, uncut diamond, and cat’s eye (proof that M. does like cats after all?).

Wearing it, I do indeed feel powerful — smart and beautiful, too.

But most of all — I feel loved.
