    Love the recipe. I get totally worn out reading all your comments.

  • Moxie

    You just scanned Leta’s picture into a Virtual Makeover program and added facial hair.

  • Brian

    No idea who wrote it.

    That man needs some Christmas cookies:

    Tequila Cookies

    1 cup of dark brown sugar
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter
    1 cup of granulated sugar
    4 large eggs
    2 cups of dried fruit, (dried cranberries or raisins )
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp fresh lemon juice
    1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila (silver or gold, as desired)

    Sample the Cuervo to check quality.

    Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour another 4 oz. in a measuring cup and drink.

    Turn on the electric mixer…Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl.

    Add one teaspoon of sugar…Beat again. At this point it’s best to
    make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another 4 oz. …just in case.

    Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit, pick the frigging fruit off floor…

    Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers
    just pry it loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

    Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Check the Jose Cuervo.

    Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table.

    Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

    Greash the oven.

    Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don’t forget to beat off the turner.

    Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

    Yes! John Corbett! Thank you! Now I want one.

  • no my name ain’t baby

    wow, that’s some fast-growin’ facial hair. must be all that fresh air. and beer. lots of beer.

  • Cheryl

    ahhhh.. the look of exhaustion after stringing all the lights.

  • Lauren

    Looks like Leta with facial hair.

  • Shmee

    He looks like he’s trying to get water out of his ear :)

  • hayley

    this photo has been posted for all of, what, 20 seconds? and there are over 20 replies.

    Oh mon Dieu!

  • Gordon

    Get a haircut you…you…you…hippie you!

  • Amanda B.

    Jon: “I know you were just playing around, honey…but that shit really hurts…”

  • paige

    Normally I can’t stand facial hair but he does pull it off, lucky you. :)

  • Circus Kelli

    Great picture of your handsome hubby and the lovely festive tree in the background!

    Susie — LOVE that recipe! Very funny! Where did you get that?

  • mc

    Aaah, the winter beard. Something we New Englanders are all over this year. My husb started his as a good luck charm for the Red Sox and is now convinced he’s invincible. Good thing he looks (almost) as good with it as does Jon!

  • Caroline

    I can’t see it yet, but I love Lauren’s description!

  • Sheryl

    Jon looks like he is holding a 2 x 4 behind his back.
    A surprise for someone at the door?

    Or maybe it just looks like that on my blackberry.

  • Kimberley H.

    He is super cute. Like I said, those damned mormon genes. Its like a lot of them are scarily good looking. Muah Muah Muah.

  • Sherman

    not so much into beards, but i LOVE his hair. plus i just love him for being a good guy.

  • Liz

    Oh wow.

  • sab

    nice beard. i think i have convinced my better half to grow one.

  • wn

    So Dooce…I’m tryin’ to figure out how your walls are painted…is the beige-type color in in the background textured?

    I swear I’m not a stalker-obsessed-type-fan…just a curious girl!

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    Is that a bullet hole in the chair? Did you shoot at him, Dooce?

  • Candice

    Guys with beards and unruly hair (who also happen to be wonderfully beautiful on the inside, too) are the best.

  • beachgal

    yummy! Love the hair sticking up! And the mid sentence open mouth thing. and the tree.

  • Susie

    Circus Kelli, wish I could give credit to someone for that recipe — it really tickled me, too — but I got it in a “group email” from a friend, with no author (cook?) cited . . . I’ve observed a certain level of appreciation for the benefits of tequila on this site, and thought it might be appreciated here.

  • Melanie S

    Oh, I love the “Luke from the Gilmore Girls” look alikes!


    You are a very lucky woman Dooce!

  • Colleen from NJ

    “ooh, shit, she’s pitching another votive…”

  • krissy pants

    Susie – your recipe for Tequila cookies is too damn funny.

    I’ve made many a dinner under the influence of the obligatory glass of wine…I swear I don’t know how the bottle got empty before I set dinner on the table!

  • TracyDee

    I think Leta has John’s mouth. Great picture :)

  • Fish

    Jon: “No, I STILL haven’t recovered from last weekend, thank you very much.”

  • Peg

    C’mon did John use mousse to get his hair to stand up like that?

  • reenie


  • Kano

    From that angle he resembles Dennis Quaid a little bit.

  • christy
  • Em

    Nothing like scruff. Enjoy your holiday treats…

    damn, that was lame.

  • Caroline

    Oh good, I can see it now.


  • Anne

    Five bucks says that by the end of the day these four comments will be made about this picture (or variations thereof):

    2. Leta sooooo looks just like Jon.
    3. Jon soooo looks just like Leta.
    4. OH MY GOD! I’M COMING!!!!!!!

  • Dale Cruse

    I’m still not first! YAY!

  • tangoali

    I want to hump his leg.

  • Lindsey

    Yummers :)

  • Liz M

    Anne wins the funniest comment thus far award…

  • `jen

    i SO need someone like that to “help” around the house. ;)

  • Em

    Damn your man is hot! Don’t you love the feel of his beard on your skin? mmmmmm…….

  • becky


  • LadyBug

    Yes, ’tis a nice beard.
    And I like the weird angle of the picture, the “up the nose” shot. Of course, we’re lucky there were no little, um, _Chrismas elves_ playing peek-a-boo out Jon’s nose.
