October 15th, 2013 Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Cardamom, Vanilla and Almonds

Living in a twelve unit building where my primary view is an arm-length’s peek into other people’s apartment windows, I’ve realized how much this city is part of my fabric. My community.

The other day, I walked out of my house and smelled Fall. It was smokey and cold and hit the back of my nostrils in a rush of wind.
