The Joy Trip Project

Quote of the day / 10.08.2009

“The price we pay for the complexity of life is too high. When you think of all the effort you have to put in, telephonic, technological and relational, to alter even the slightest bit of behavior in this strange world we call social life, you are left pining for the straightforwardness of primitive peoples and their physical work.” Jean Baurdrillard ~ French postmodern cultural theorist, sociologist, philosopher (1929-2007) Photo by Gabe Rogel from the book Vertical Ethiopia by Majka Burhardt...

Deserts, Recipes / 09.08.2009

Don't let anyone tell you that cooking at home is hard. I discovered this recipe for muffins with the help of my friend Erin Luken. Not only is she one of the most talented amateur bakers I have ever met, but she and her husband Jason Beren are avid sailors. While visiting their home for an interview on sailing for an upcoming magazine feature, Erin pulled these delicious raspberry muffins fresh from the oven. The recipe for "Campton Place Muffins" appears in Deserts By The Yard by Sherry Yard executive pastry chef of Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills photo by James Edward Mills
