Saturday, October 09th, 2010

I dined poolside one night at the ACE hotel in Palm Springs and the ambience was straight up Bates Motel with gaggles of hipsters drinking Vodka snowcones from rock’n vintage Airstreams.  What those kids didn’t know is that Airstreams aren’t from Silverlake, Portland, Austin, or Brooklyn.  Neither is Victoria’s Secret, Oberlin College, Matt Lauer, White Castle, Bow Wow, Coy Bacon, Halle Berry, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, DEVO, The Black Keys, etc, etc, etc, etc,etc….  I’m just say’n.

I’m going back to the OH-HIGH-OH for some true hipness, so see you all in 2 weeks (23OCt) for the next shenanigan & recipe.

Airstream Apron?  Got the fabric from the hip divas at Tonic Living.  Big, big thanks to Phil DeFalco Photography for the hippest shoots ever.

Recipe here!

    I don’t think I’ve had a buckeye since the last time I was IN Ohio, and that was almost a year ago! I think maybe this weekend, I’ll swipe your recipe & make up a batch of these to enjoy after a monstrous 3-Way! :) Have a good trip!!!! And if it’s still around, you should have a late-night/early-morning breakfast at the Blue Danube for me!

    I’ve been meaning to try buckeyes for a long time. I hear they’re deeelicious! They sure look it!

    Loving this whole photo shoot–from the yummy food, to the retro-chic trailer, to the zippy red heels. Okay, especially the zippy red heels, they give such a cute pop of color!

    No joke…peanut butter balls are one of my favorite holiday-time treats. Maybe it’s childhood memories or maybe it’s the fact that bite size peanut butter and chocolate combos are gifts from heaven. At least my heaven….
