View of the beach from the balcony of our condo. See what I mean about it being so calm?
Geez, what a bunch of dorks.
Napoleon House in the French Quarter
Pirate's Alley and Faulkner House
Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo on Bourbon Street (the small wooden building on the right, not the large brick one with the gorgeous railings)
Yesterday I made chocolate stout cupcakes with cream cheese frosting from this recipe. The stout part refers, not to the size of your waist after eating them (although it could), but to the Guinness they're made with. And they were delicious. The beer makes a really interesting, subtle addition to the chocolate that cuts the sweetness. Highly recommended.
