Somebody's Got A Sweet Tooth


After playing in the snow at Central Park and recording vocoder parts in the studio. . . I had the urge to bake again.  This time it was caramel corn.  I can't believe this was my first time making it.  It's so good.  It reminds me of my childhood and it tastes kinda like Cracker Jacks.  Now I'm just searching for the prize . . .

The recipe I used was from The Joy Of Veagan Baking.  I used brown rice syrup in place of the corn syrup.

Beautiful Central Park

Another Snow Day Here In New York City!

We got 19 inches of snow here in NYC throughout the day yesterday and last night.  
Seemed a good reason to do some baking.  
This morning it was Vegan Chocolate Chip Scones!  
The recipe was adapted a bit from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's The Joy Of Vegan Baking.  
The subtitle is The compassionate Cooks Traditional Treats and Sinful Sweets.  
So true.
I love to make these scones into heart shapes....Just as they did at the Uptown Bakery in Oxford, Ohio where I spent many mornings studying for school.

Mmmmm....I think it's time to go and eat another...

In The Studio with My VP 330

Broke out my Roland Vocoder Plus VP 330 for a track currently titled Addicted (aka In Your Cup).  I'm making a lot of progress and love what is happening.  The VP 330 is one of the tools that really helps me in my songwriting/composing stages.  It's going to make a big appearance on this track.  I can't wait till it's ready for the world to hear.

Other songs I've used this on so far are: In Your Arms, Tried 2 Resist, and Wanting You.

I'm excited to be getting close to having something for y'all to hear.  At the moment I am contemplating releasing my next album in two stages.  Which would mean having something ready for a release in the spring/early summer 2011. . . . .  I'll will post more here as soon as I am more clear with dates and what not. 

It's already 10:30pm!  Yikes.  Time for dinner.

Photos From the NY Blizzard in December 2010

Yes, that is a car totally buried in snow outside my window.

Photo from the block I live on in Brooklyn, NY.

Another shot from my street.  Folks trying to free their vehicles.

Midtown.

Oh and the beauty of trash on top of snow.  It's gotten even worse.  All the dump trucks were used as plows for snow removal.  All Trash pick up was suspended.  Still waiting for the pile of trash outside our building to be removed.  Makes you realize how much gets thrown out in a week.  And it all goes where?
