Here is the recipe for an apple bourbon pecan bundt cake that I found on the New York Times Cooking site. I discovered the site last week, seems it launched a week before. Wonderful source of recipes - 16,000+ - and a way to save them in your own recipe box. Bright, white, simple format. The cake called for candied ginger which I didn't have and couldn't find easily. So I used golden raisins sprinkled with ground ginger. Couldn't really taste the ginger. The cake came out moist and looked wonderful but I think it was lacking in a level of additional needed flavor. So I'll add allspice or cardamon or cloves. Also next time I'll double the amount of bourbon-sugar syrup to soak it in. But I'll definitely go back to the site. Now that I'm donating most of my cookbooks to the library and getting recipes online, this NY Times section can be my first go-to.
May it be a good, sweet year for everyone and may all the world's people figure out a way to live in peace. ~ Amen
Tennis was always sort of a – a learning. It was a vehicle for me to discover a lot about myself. And the things that I sort of discovered at times I not only didn’t want to see it for myself but I certainly didn’t want millions of people to see it. ~ Andre Agassi
A match at Sunset Hills Country Club, Thousand Oaks, CA. September 5, 2014. First attempt at shooting tennis. I have great respect for sports photographers ... and their expensive equipment. I don't play tennis, though I've had lessons once a decade almost since high school. The idea of sweating and running around intrigues me. Chasing little balls - not so much. Walking or biking at the gym or walking the streets of Manhattan or Paris are my idea of the right type of exercise.
