Just when you think you can’t improve upon the awesome-ness of brownies, Baker’s Edge creates a pan to make them even tastier.  They state that each brownie will have at least 2 sides of crust, which we all know is the best part.  I’m so happy that these geniuses have used their power for good instead of evil. Their next creation will be a lasagna pan.  It’s like they are creating these gems just...

Last night my sister and I went to see Howard Jones.  He had been a childhood favorite of ours.  I had been fighting a cold and not really wanting to go.  Once I got there that all changed.  Howard Jones put on an amazing show.  It was just him on the keyboard and a guitar player in an acoustic show.  He played all of the favorites plus some new songs that he will be recording in April.  He told lots...

Last night my husband and I went to see Joanna Newsom at the Aladdin.  I had discovered her while listening to Pandora.  I was so excited to hear she was coming to town.  The opening act was Smog which consists of one person named Bill Callahan.  While my husband liked him, I wasn’t super impressed.  All the songs sounded the same; they were all very slow and made me sleepy.  I kept myself...
