I didn't see it with LMM - I saw it on Sunday, and 98% feel like I am okay with that. Daveed and and Leslie are INCREDIBLE, and while I would like to see LMM, I feel like Javier Muñoz was really great and I didn't miss out- the show is just really well written.

I saw it Javier Munoz as Hamilton, and honestly he was FANTASTIC. I would love to see it with LMM but I got to go on a Sunday and he did a great job and I would not really stress - the show is still beyond.

AAH, the King Arthur Flour "Our Favorite Sour Cream Coffee Cake" is so so so good. I have made it easily 8 times this year and ppl love it. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/our-favori...
This link is currently not working, so:


1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter
1 cup (7 ounces) sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups (8 1/2 ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream or yogurt*
*Feel free to use low-fat (NOT nonfat) sour cream or yogurt; if using yogurt, try vanilla or another complementary flavor, if desired.

1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup (2 ounces) chopped walnuts, optional


1. Cream together the butter or margarine, sugar, and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the sour cream or yogurt, stirring after each addition.
2. Grease and flour a regular-sized (9 1/2-inch) tube pan or bundt-style pan, or a 9 x 9-inch pan. Spread half the batter in the pan, and sprinkle with half the topping mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and topping.
3. Bake the coffeecake in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the cake tests done. Cool it for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove it from the pan. (If you've baked it in a 9 x 9-inch pan, just serve it right from the pan.) Place the cake right-side-up (topping up) on a plate to serve.

Yield: about 12 generous servings.

Ah, I'm sorry, that's a bummer. I had no idea that was an ongoing issue! :(

try emailing again, Marie is a goddess.

go to the museums that are free/suggested donations! i am not really helpful because I grew up on LI and cannot imagine not living in NYC. I also find it helpful to remind myself everyone is just doing the best they can, and avoiding midtown at all costs.

I stumbled upon a ticket to Hamilton this weekend and OMG NICOLE IS RIGHT. I'm so glad I didn't listen to the album before (which was really just blind luck)
