This past weekend on Saturday March 27th was Earth Hour. An initiative started in Australia where people turn off all their lights for one hour from 8:30 to 9:30 to signify and stand against global warming.
I participated in Earth Hour last year at home and this year I wanted to capture what the great city of New York does. In the photo you can see the not so drastic change from pre-8:30 and post-8:30. The lights did go off in the Empire State Building...but to be honest I was hoping for more...
Maybe in a few more years when the word about Earth Hour spreads a little farther!

This storm left everything but the calm! With nearly 200,000 people out of power and thousands of roads closed the catastrophe around us was not to be missed! On our way to breakfast this morning we took quite the detour due to downed trees and power lines that were still sparking! Took some pictures on our excursion but I especially love this shot of the worker who posed for me.
Yesterday amid the crazy Nor'easter I was taking a food photography class with amazing professional Lou Manna. www.loumanna.com check out his site to see some of his work. It was a great experience and I learned a TON! Here are some images from the class (as they speak louder than words)

…with the tulips on the table and the amazing weather we've been having it's feeling like Spring is here! Dillon and I have been in panini heaven this week concocting delicious sandwiches including Green Apple & Brie, Chicken & Spinach & Mozzarella and so much more… Then there was also Dillon’s new Chipotle Ranch he whipped up!

So last week we got Dillon’s Mom’s amazing cookie recipe! I think every time we go back to Chicago she has always had a good batch of these cookies around the house whether it’s the dough, the solid ones in the freezer that taste just as good post-microwave or the freshly baked ones! Last weekend while cooped up in the house due to the freezing weather outside we made an obscenely large amount of this incredible dough So much dough that we have been able to continue to bake fresh cookies all week long!
