[This photo is part of my 2011 Picture a Day project »] I’m trying to perfect my recipe for chile-infused honey before posting it on Slice. Credit where due: It is 100% inspired by Mike’s Hot Honey, which is available online or from the bar at Paulie Gee’s. I’m playing with the spice levels. The … Continue reading 1/19/2011: Experimenting with chile-infused honey
This photo is part of my attempt to take at least one photograph a day in 2011. Inspired by SE’r PoorOldMama, we declared January 8 International Serious Eats Day and tried to spark a series of distributed, autonomous meet-ups of SE’rs across the U.S. and around the world. At the NYC meet-up at Radegast Hall … Continue reading 1/8/2011: Accidental creepiness
To say that this is not the most glamorous Date Night would be an understatement, but Claire had a craving for Mexican. We tossed around the idea of doing Taco Night at home with a box-taco mix, but we were slow getting out of the house. So down to the local Chinese Mexican place we … Continue reading 1/7/2011: Date night at Fresca Tortilla
OK … so I didn’t actually take this photo — but I art-directed it, so I think that counts. (Claire took it.) Plus, I took other photos today that I could have subbed in to this slot, so I’m still within the spirit of the project. Here, I’m using the mini grater that Claire got … Continue reading 1/5/2011: Great grater!
Inspired by the semi-dried cherry tomato topping at Di Fara, I did a trial run of semi-dried grape tomatoes (my market didn’t have the former in stock). Lesson learned here? Shoot before-and-after photos under the same lighting conditions. Duh. The top photo is shot under our range’s built-in fluorescent cooktop light, while the photo just … Continue reading 1/3/2011: Semi-dried grape tomatoes

Even if the English had been rendered correctly, “As old as the hills” would still make no sense as a slogan. Continue reading Funny English: ‘As Old as Hills’

It’s a question I asked just today on Facebook and was pleased to get an answer within minutes. From the New York Times‘s Christopher Gray in a March 1987 Cityscape story: The Queens Terra-Cotta building, built in 1892 as the first structure solely for offices of the growing concern, was designed by Francis H. Kimball, … Continue reading What is with the abandoned building on Vernon Boulevard under the Queensboro Bridge in Long Island City?
You can’t really read it in this photo, but the piece of tape on the backrest says, “Free.” As seen on Fourth Avenue near Union Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Continue reading ‘Be a Chairperson’
P042909CK-0021, originally uploaded by The Official White House Photostream. From a Flickr commenter: I really appreciate the behind-the-scenes pictures. We hardly ever see photos of the White House staffers who keep things going – the butlers, secretaries, floor-polishers. Work is dignified and everybody who does work has dignity. Publishing these photos means the White House … Continue reading Official White House Flickr

Rut Blees Luxemburg at Union Gallery Just heard a few songs from Original Pirate Material on BBC 6 Music, which had me navigating to read a bit about the album on Wikipedia. I’ve always liked the album art on that record. Wiki says it’s by Rut Blees Luxemburg, “a German artist who studied photography at … Continue reading Rut Blees Luxemburg
