I thought to myself, “I’ve got this great article on region-appropriate native landscaping that I should share on Tumblr!” But then I thought, “It’s only Tuesday. Coconut palms are the heroes the readers need.”

One story is that the Canelé origin goes back to the 18th or 19th century, in the Annonciades’ convent in Bordeaux. It is also said that the Bordeaux wine industry also may be a reason that Canelés are concentrated in that part of France. Traditionally Bordeaux wines are clarified with egg white, leaving the yolk behind to use for cooking.
Canelés are made with eggs, flour, milk, butter, vanilla and rum.

aliveandfullofjoy | This usually isn’t the first thing people think of when they think of Elaine Stritch, but one of my very favorite performances of hers will always be the finale to her brilliant one-woman show Elaine Stritch At Liberty, a heartfelt performance of the song ”Something Good.” The song, with music and lyrics by Richard Rodgers, was of course written for the 1965 film adaptation of The Sound of Music; where it’s boring and out of place there, here it is used with alarming and devastating poignancy. This is Elaine Stritch to me: a performer with a knack of selling any song, if it was the best of Sondheim or if she had to elevate the material, and making a deeply personal connection to it. Brava.
