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...


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.

What's next, a Cat Fancy subscription???

Can't wait to gorge myself on them though.

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!
