The Making of Half Hearted Valentine Cookies

Half Hearted Valentine Cookies

The Half Hearted Valentine Cookies have become my most popular cookie outside of the Christmas holiday season. It has been a few year since I have made them and I learn something new each time. For this batch, I made cookies a little thicker. The thinner cookies brown on top too quickly. Enjoy!

Fox Theatre Oakland Grand Opening

Fox Theatre Oakland Grand Opening Gala 08

After 10 years of work and millions of dollars in renovations, the Fox Theatre in downtown Oakland reopened on 2/5. In addition to being a music venue, the Fox Theatre is home to the Oakland School for the Arts.
I did not attend the opening gala last week, but you can click here to see photos from opening night.
