Screen-shot-2014-10-25-at-10.19.37-PM

The Art of Cooking with Michelle, Chloe and Mia, is a comic book… well, not really… It’s a cook book… It’s a COMIC COOK BOOK! That’s right… My friends Michelle, Chloe, Mia and I want to show you how to make 30 delicious recipes, and we hope you’ll join us in creating a one of a kind, never before seen cook book.

But we need all the help we can get in funding the production of the project! Which is why you should check out our kickstarter campaign.

Merci and bon appétit!
Liz, Michelle, Chloe and Mia

Mapping My Way Back Home by Nip Rogers

I remember reading about ‘good omens’ in one of Paulo Coelho’s book, The Alchemist. “Omens are a language, it’s the alphabet we develop to speak to the world’s soul, or the universe’s, or God’s, whatever name you want to give it. Like an alphabet, it is individual, you only learn it by making mistakes, and that keeps you from globalizing the spiritual quest.” It’s coming close to November again – the day I left home with a map job in hand – I am preparing myself to go back home and the job I have in hand now is a map of Lake Placid. This feels like a ‘good omen’ to me. It makes me feel that I’m coming full circle and that everything will turn out fine.
