I love New York.

I love the architecture of old apartment buildings with fire escapes.

The beautiful autumn leaves.

The perfect crisp breeze when you walk through Central Park.

Let's be honest here.

This is the real reason I'm coming home.

Because I can not. stop. eating those cookies.

And now that I'm back in Los Angeles, I can't stop eating this Mexican skillet dinner.

I've already had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

And then another Levain cookie for dessert.

Yes, of course I brought home a box of cookies.
