My Fave Aussie

Happy Australia Day!

And cheers to my fave Aussie dish, Simon Baker. Le sigh…

“I didn’t grow up with money, but I grew up with a lot of space. All I did was surf. I was committed to the ocean. That’s one thing about Australians; we have the capacity to embrace life.” ~Simon Baker

HBD, Blue Eyes

Happy Birthday to a true Hollywood hearthrob & humanitarian. From The Long Hot Summer, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid,  Sweet Bird of Youth, and Cool Hand Luke ~ to a passionate devotion to wife Joanne Woodward and their charity Newman’s Own Foundation ~ those blue eyes are still shining bright through your amazing legacy!

Favorite Newman-isms:

Why fool around with hamburger when you have steak at home?”

“If I ever feel like I`m doing something I`ve done before, I scrap it and start over again.”

“The embarrassing thing is that the salad  dressing is outgrossing my films.”

“If you don`t have enemies, you don`t have character.”

“Newman’s first law: It is useless to put on your brakes when you’re upside down.”

A stud with style and substance ~ what’s not to love?

Mediterranean Diet

This is my kind of Mediterranean Diet ~ after a full day of foggy & grey in DC, this is where I’d like to be…

Ciao, Amalfi Coast!

Buona sera, mio amore…

Lemon Merengue

This lemon chiffon confection makes me want to dance the merengue! If I could lift this fantastic frock off the page and slip it on, we’d already be dancing, darlings.
