While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No.
I’ve edited a monthly magazine for more than six years, and it’s a job that’s come with more frustration than reward. If there’s one thing I am grateful for — and it sure isn’t the pay — it’s that my work has allowed endless time to hone my craft to Louis Skolnick levels of grammar geekery. As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes. But experience has also taught me that readers, for better or worse, will approach your work with a jaundiced eye and an itch to judge.
I love light – lots of it and try to get as much of it as I can streaming into my house. I also love architectural details, but my house didn’t come with many so I have to add them myself. My Studioffice is in the front of the house and has two windows. The wall opposite has a door way that goes to the family room that has some dead space above it. I decided I could make it a WIN/WIN area by making a fake transom window above the doorway. It not only would give me more light as the mirror in the fake transom will reflect the light from the windows, but it will add some architectural interest to the room as well – WIN/WIN.
I have been assessing my house for the past few weeks trying to figure out what projects I need to do if we have to move and what projects I would love to do if we stay. One thing I noted is that I see a trend happening in all of my rooms – I am removing the window treatments! Well – not all, but for the past year I have noticed I like my windows with less – less fuss, less fabric. I want to see clearly outside and don’t want too much competition with the outside view, but I still want them to look nice. I once read in a decorating book that windows are the smile of a house. Think about it – when you walk up to a house with shiny, clean, unobstructed windows you feel the house is welcoming you with a big smile.
Monogamy Cabernet Sauvignon is a very nice, smooth everyday Cabernet to enjoy. It’s a great sipper and also goes well with food. Monogamy is a great stepping-stone red wine for white wine drinkers to begin expanding their palates. You’ve experimented. You’ve discovered what you like. And what you don’t.
Look at the March issue of House Beautiful magazine and you will be enlightened to the power of pink when it comes to decorating our homes this year. Seeing pink on the cover of decorating magazines as well as merchandise in stores like Target and Wal-Mart reminds me of a line from the movie Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. There is a scene where it is pronounced to- Well, we don’t want to go that far – although marketers would love it if we did. Color trends come and go - while only last year Pantone told us turquoise was the way to go. It’s enough to drive even design lovers crazy.
I love gift-wrap and I also love anything and everything having to do with typefaces. So it is no surprise to me that I have had my eye on this vintage typographer gift-wrap ever since Emily over at Jones Design Company posted about it as well as many other pretty papers she uses. I wanted to find a way I could use this gift-wrap where I could enjoy the pattern in my daily life instead of only wrapping gifts with it and giving it away.

The exhibition, organized by The Costume Institute, celebrated the late Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. His iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. The exhibition featured approximately one hundred ensembles and seventy accessories from Mr. McQueen’s prolific nineteen-year career.
I recently discovered The Selby , and here is a home, more or less 1000 sq ft., bursting with neutral colors making it 'bigger' than it actually is. I really love the combination of open planning and simple palette in this home.. Everything's seems within reach but doesn't appear too crowded.. Every area is properly spaced.. First thing that caught my eye was the loft guest bed (sleeps overs not a problem!)..

France has always placed its “seventh art” form on a pedestal and, for the most part, kept it in a glass case, like a sculpture in a museum to be visited by the rest of the world, but never touched. Now, however, French cinema is more relevant than ever as The Artist paints a new picture of the country’s thriving film biz. Ticket sales have never been higher in France – a record 215.59 tickets were sold, the most in 45 years – and, even more surprising, these titles are actually attracting audiences abroad as well. Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache ’s Untouchable is at the top of the German box office and has sold more than 2 million tickets. Last year, French films made $519 million at the international box office, a 19 percent jump in revenue from the year before. None of these figures are surprising to anyone who has seen this year’s crop of films since, to put it simply, they’re good.
