I got the recipe from Monica, and now I'm giving it to you.
Seriously, the best syrup EVER and you will be addicted and licking your plate.
Bring to a boil in a large pan (the syrup "grows"!):
1 cube (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 TBSP. corn syrup
1/2 tsp. baking soda
Once syrup boils for 7 minutes add:
1 TBSP vanilla
Debbie has been my friend for many years and she is seriously one of my favorite people in the world. She is fun, brave, optimistic, loving, talented, outgoing, hilarious, caring, interesting and interested, thoughtful and I laugh my butt off whenever I'm around her. I love her guts!
Happy Birthday Deb!

He's thrilled with his book choices but I think he's going to have a problem turning the Batman book back over to the library. It's a 'starred book' and that means no renewal. Uh oh.....

I pick my team by location and color. This year I have had a big dilemma though.
The Steelers wear my favorite color - black, but I'd rather visit the Cardinals home state - Arizona.
After much thought, I have made my decision.
Since I'd rather visit Arizona and it's February and they wear the color of love, I will be cheering for the Arizona Cardinals in the 2009 Super Bowl....

Looks like it should have been an easy errand, but it wasn't. They look cute though.....
Take a portrait of another photographer with whatever matters most to them, give them a copy of their portrait and they do the same for another photographer...
We're going to have another shoot outdoors, but these three were my favorite from our raining day shoot. (The curtain in the second one drives me crazy but she is going to fix it in Photoshop :-)
What do you think?....

Here's a recipe to make your own:
1/4 cup flour
1 egg white, beaten stiff
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp oil1 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp water
1/4 tsp vanilla
Combine flour, sugar, cornstarch, and oil. Fold in egg white. Add vanilla and water.
In a small skillet (non-stick or lightly oiled), over medium heat, pour 1 tablespoon of batter, spreading it out into a 3" circle. Cook 4 minutes until lightly browned.Turn with spatula and cook 1 more minute. Remove from the pan (careful - it will be hot!).
Place paper fortune strip in center of circle. Fold in half over the edge of a glass, and then bend to form Fortune-cookie shape. Hold until cool, or place in an egg carton to hold the shape until the cookies firm up.
I know fortune cookies are Chinese American, but they are so fun!
