This month I couldn’t get enough of… Cotton Candy Grapes : :  I found out about these from my friend Pattie Cordova.  They sell them at Sprouts markets and of course I had to try them.  They really DO taste like cotton candy.  It is so odd!  And delicious. Foam magazine ::  I’m kind of…

Cool coloring from best kid’s magazine ever!

Do you know about Anorak Magazine?  It is from the UK and it is awesome.  I stumbled across it at a Barnes and Noble a few years ago and pick it up whenever I see it, which isn’t often.  The stories are clever and funny (and quirky thanks to English slang and terms that we…

Saddle up for the Kentucky Derby
