In Venice, Italy a major contemporary art exhibition takes place every two years called the La Biennale di Venezia, and the 56th International Art Exhibition is open to the public until November 22, 2015, and the 14th International Architecture Exhibition entitled Fundamentals until November, 23, 2014.

IMG_3811Practically every Palazzo has an art exhibit or installation as part of the undertaking and our on the spot reporters {Sean and Tony} scored big with their first photographs. An Ai Weiwei piece of 700 bicycles called Stacked, 2014 that we saw in the Brooklyn Museum of Art in August of this year is now in Venice outside of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti off the Grand Canal, these are exquisite shots.

Travel stylishly and enjoy!

Lemon Drizzle Cake

IMG_3792I used the long weekend to test a few recipes for the upcoming holidays and one in particular was a “lemon drizzle” cake, which I knew my niece and mom would be partial to as lemons are a favorite. I cannot express how moist and delicious this dessert tasted once finished. It is the perfect treat to add to one’s holiday repertoire as it exudes a most citrusy flavor and can be for those who would prefer a light tasting sweet after a heavy meal with a hot cup of coffee.

IMG_3768 IMG_3781I recall my favorite aunt making a similar cake, and once I found a recipe that resembled hers, I added almond meal to the all purpose flour and cut back on the butter. Making the lemon syrup in a pan on top of the stove with the pulp, zest and sugar was the ultimate crowning, instead of using a traditional icing. It could not have turned out any better. Enjoy Linda McCartney’s recipe for Lemon Drizzle Cake from Town & Country.
