Are you a baker?

For me, baking is like pulling teeth, something to be avoided as long as possible. But I do like the heavenly scent of baking in the oven and my family appreciates when I take the time to try, so I’m going to start a Sunday post with #Family #recipes that are as close to fail-safe as possible!

Today’s recipe comes from my husband’s side of the family. My S-I-L makes the best banana bread I’ve ever tasted, moist, flavorful, and decadent!

MY INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR SUZANNE JENKINS!

13240487_1015016428568388_5130318938500939203_nWhat’s your name and what genre would you consider your books to be?

HI, I’m Suzanne Jenkins. I write all genres but love women’s fiction the best.

Tell me about your book. How did you come up with that (story, angle, idea)?

My new release from September 25th is Esmeralda’s Happy Time Cabin for Lost Hikers. About five years ago I was talking to my Canadian daughter -in-law about a story I couldn’t get out of my head of hikers who encounter a group of grifters.  The characters from Michigan and Manhattan paths would cross and I was debating which location would be the best and she suggested the Muskoka.

41723638_2095375213865832_7580811646184980480_nHow did you get interested in writing this particular genre (historical novels, mysteries, sci-fi, children’s books, etc.)?

I have stories in my head and they need to come out so I can get…

Revisiting 10 shops from 1979 Greenwich Village

Ephemeral New York

Last month, Ephemeral New York ran a post featuring some never-before-seen downtown street photos taken in the summer of 1979.

They were taken by a Dutch sailor whose ship was docked in New York Bay.

Whenever he could take a day off and visit Manhattan, he brought along his camera, capturing the energy and excitement of a city he had no idea was at its supposed nadir, facing bankruptcy and with residents fleeing fast.

These photos are from the same collection. Rather than random street shots revealing glimpses of the magic and beauty of day-to-day life downtown, they focus on stores—the kind of small, local businesses that are becoming an endangered species in today’s Manhattan.

Some of these businesses still exist, like Rocco’s, still the best pastry shop on Bleecker Street.

Ottomanelli’s meat market also remains on Bleecker; you can see part of the old-school sign in the photo below…
