Here's a recipe that you should have made six months ago. More about this later.......
Also they'll never look this good. Or maybe, if you're dedicated....
From the 1796 cookbook, "AMERICAN COOKERY ", by Amelia Simmons, the first cookbook authored by an American:
To 3 pound of flour, sprinkle a teacup of fine powdered coriander seed,
rub in 1 pound butter, and 1 and a 1/2 pound sugar,
dissolve one teaspoonful pearlath in a tea cup of milk,
kneed all together well, roll 3/4 of an inch thick,
and cut or stamp into a shape and size as you please.
Bake slowly, 15 or 20 minutes. Tho hard and dry, if put in an earthen pot,
a cellar, or a damp room, they will be finer, softer and better
when six months old.

So quiet and modest,
she inspired a very subtle interpretation.
And so he smiled at this good fortune.
Mona was sketched and erased, painted and highlighted.
Luxuriant pleats of Chinese silk enfolded her wrists.
A diluted brown and a thickened umber underlined
the shadows of her face.
Every visit brought a fresh coloration.
Amethyst blended into purple,
as Leonardo's brush deepened the creases of her gown.
The face again, with the touch of a smile.
A muted lavender curved over her cheeks.
Light from the leaded glass window
rounded her bosom and blushed her skin.
The artist let a speck of gold enter his palate,
and so he did caress the Lady with his brush,
his fingers lingering on this touch.
The reflection in her hazel eyes showed Leonardo
painting his muse for days and weeks and months.
Yet, too square the chin, too much like his.
At once an unsoiled brush dipped into yellow ochre
outlined an oval, and a delicate heart of a face
was at last fashioned and set to remain.
Three years posed before the window,
her words, like a soft breath, told no stories,
revealed no secrets. Leonardo's mouth softened
to mimic an impression of silent Mona's mouth.
His parted hair, now graying, touched his shoulders.
He stroked her curls on the canvas with bronze
and touched her silent lips.
Suddenly Leonardo's hand brushed the painted mouth
and a blotch of ginger paint stayed on his thumb.
He blended it into a rose,
then painted onto it the smile
that he knew much longer than three years.

You'll see that most, if not all, are films that came out after 2000, mostly 2004/2008. Loads of stuff that won awards at Sundance, Cannes, etc.
Lots of foreign, German, Spanish, Almodovar, of course, an oddity from Israel/Egypt(imagine! "The Band's Visit"). A great Russian movie called, of all things, "The Italian", will break your heart and send you to heaven. All seem to be about real people, looking for what we're looking for.
Wonderful acting, totally non-formula. Really great American, English films too. I'm going to try to just list the flicks, but I may start making asides. We'll find out soon, how it goes.
Across the Universe
All About My Mother
Flags of our Fathers
The Lives of Others
Talk to Her (Almodovar)
Water (from India, maybe the most gorgeous film ever)
After the Wedding (Danish)
Away from Her
The Band's Visit
Bernard and Doris
The Edge of Heaven
A History of Violence
Into Great Silence (really, a monastery, a dedicated life)
La Vie en Rose
Little Miss Sunshine
Notes on a Scandal
The Secret Life of Words
The Year My Parents Went on Vacation
Starting Out in the Evening
So what do you think?
I have plans for other lists....oh, stop me now....
Was your beauty skin deep?
Daddy loves you.
In a dim room
a million hands caressed you
If I stand that way, will I be worshipped?
REST IN PEACE
