Be Afraid, Be Very, Very Afraid...

It's official. I am old. I was at the hairdresser last weekend getting my hair did, and whilst waiting for my color to process, read all of the Glamour and Allure and Star Magazine I could find, and what was left staring up at me? More magazine with Diane Keaton on the cover. I kid you not when I say I read it with the cover hidden so that no one else could see what I was reading. I seriously think I would've been less embarrassed to be seen reading Big Jugs than More in public. What is WRONG with me? It was a lovely, decent magazine, filled with incredible women like Cate Blanchett, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Emma Thompson, and of course, Ms. Keaton (who by the way at 63 has an 8 and a 13-year old - she crazy).

But what clinched it for me? The article on "cookies for grown-ups" including such delicacies as Cardamom Pepper Cookies, Salted Caramel Cookies, Cornmeal Thumbprints, and Double-Ginger Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Hear me now and believe me later when I tell you that I ripped those pages out of the mag and stuffed them in my purse. I know. It's terribew. I have a baaaad habit of stealing magazines from my hairdresser and dentist. Hey, at least this time it was only a few pages.

I've got to run though. I have 17 cookies left to eat, and let's keep this whole reading More magazine between us, okay...

Merci!

EDIT:
Would you feast your eyes on these?



Cardamom Pepper Cookies with Cognac Cream Glaze. Hooooo-weeee, I may be able to skip my nightly "medicinal brandy" if I just eat one of these babies. Soooooo. Deeeeelish. Click here for the recipe, and don't say I didn't warn you.

Yum! And I'll totally admit, I love More...been reading it since it first came out...but I refuse to buy a subscription! What would the mailman think? I have him convinced I'm 25 years younger than my husband!
