  • Chocolate & Hazelnut Meringue Cake

    Thank you guys so much for playing the game the other day and giving me great suggestions for B’s birthday cake. He was a bit shocked I did not have any of my own – the truth is I had too many and after staring at them for a few days, none seemed that fun […]

  • Honey Lemon Pots De Creme

    I must start this post by saying that I did not pick pots de creme as a birthday treat for my better half. I could have though. He likes them. A lot. But, it became evident as I was reading your comment that there were a lot of delicious other desserts we could sink our […]

  • Cherry & Plum Crumbles With Goat Cheese Ice Cream

    You have no idea how good it feels to finally take time in this crazy schedule to come here and write a little, share a recipe and possibly a good laugh or two. Although now that I am here I am drawing a super “ugh” kind of a blank. Yes, even that brilliant paragraph I […]

  • Work Work Work – No Play…

    I’m here! I’m here! Sorry guys I have not been around long enough to update this page in the last few days. I am held hostage by work – a week long magazine photo shoot. Prepping, cooking, styling, shooting….which is made sweeter only by the fact that these recipes are really tasty (it’s always a […]

  • French Word A Week: L’ete – Les Cerises – Les Vacances!

    Summer….easy living, easy going. When the casual becomes upscale and the impromptu becomes routine. I love that. Summer evenings around here are something to be savored, never rushed. In that regard, I have retained a great deal of my home country in the way friends and family gather around our dinner table. Long evenings with […]

  • Ollalieberry Financiers & Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

    It only took twelve years to admit this but I must say that in spite of the heat and humidity I really love summers here in the South. Yes. I’ve said it. Love them. You might wonder what else is to summer here that would make me forgive the mosquitoes, head bashing heat and stick-to-your-clothes-like-frosting-on-a-cupcake […]

  • French Words A Week – Breakfast Edition: Le Petit Dejeuner

    It could have seemed as if I had forgotten the French Word A Week feature lately, right? I have not. Trust me. I did not think as many people cared about it until my inbox started filling up with messages to have it again soon. One of you even sent a “Missing! – French Word […]

  • Food & Light Photography Workshop Recap & a Chefs Catalog Giveaway!

    Going around the tables taking some shots. Still life styled by Diane. It hit me at the Atlanta airport that I was really back on the East Southern side of things Wednesday night. Unlike in Salt Lake City or Denver, you could feel the humidity seeping out through the walls and permeating the air at […]
