Gallery: PHOTOS: Woman Bakes Entire Block of Brooklyn Brownstone Homes ...

NYC may have run out of brownstone but that doesn't mean we can't substitute it with something more abundant and certainly more delicious - gingerbread! Meticulously crafted to have all the charm of the real thing, "Gingerbread Brooklyn" is an entire block of edible brownstone and other kinds of homes baked up by chef Renee Baumann and friends to be auctioned off to benefit City Harvest. We recently had the pleasure of visiting this miniature architectural wonder at 61 Local and were enchanted by its details - from sugar-glass windows that really light up to tiny fire escapes made of spicy cookie. Click through our gallery to see them all for yourself.

    I meandered into a used book store lnoikog for turn of the century romance novels which happen to be one of my favorite genres and the clerk at the store pointed me in the direction of this book. It took me awhile to pick it up once I brought it home, I must admit, but by the time I started I knew I was in for a treat. I think I howled with laughter through much of it but it also has the added bonus of making you think! I particularly loved the hedge maze part and the musings on whether or not things they held current would become antiques (and the answer to JKJ is yes!). PS: I've never thought about making chocolate covered gingerbread! Brilliant idea!
